Installing and Configuring the Policy Enforcer 17.1R1 Beta

This section describes the steps for installing and configuring the 17.1R1 beta version of Policy Enforcer.

Installing and Configuring the Policy Enforcer 17.1R1 Beta Software

The Policy Enforcer 17.1R1 beta software is available as a .ova file. Once downloaded, the steps to deploy and configure the .ova file are the same as the general release software. For more information, see Policy Enforcer Installation Overview.

Note: You can install the Policy Enforcer 17.1 beta software only with the Security Director 17.1R1 beta software. See the Product Compatibility section above for more information.

Configuring ClearPass Radius

If you plan to use the third-party switch feature within Policy Enforcer, a ClearPass 6.6 Radius server must already be installed and configured. See your ClearPass Radius server documentation for more information.

To use Policy Enforcer with the ClearPass Radius server, you must perform the following additional tasks:

  • Create an API client using the ClearPass Guest application. Policy Enforcer uses this client credentials to communicate with the ClearPass Radius server.
  • Create the Attribute in ClearPass that is required for Policy Enforcer.
  • Create an enforcement policy in ClearPass Policy Manager to define conditions and actions for the enforcement profiles.

See the ClearPass Configuration for Third-Party Switches section of the Policy Enforcer Administration Guide for more information on configuring the above steps.
