NAC guest server and pre-configured duration of accounts

Answered Question
Jun 19th, 2008

There seems to be a bug in the way the NAC guest server handles the pre-configured duration of guest accounts.

I have followed the manual and I did:

- Configured 3 durations (24h, 48h and 1 week) under the templates/accounts/accounts durations.

- And set "maximun duration of account" under User Groups

As I understand I should now be able to select one of the three configured durations when I login as a sponsor.

However I only get the number which I specified under User Group.

The odd thing is that if I change the Maximum duration under User Group, I get this as the only choice (e.g. 14 days).

Have other experienced this?

Best regards,

Steffen Lindemann

I have this problem too.

You can use any one of the option ie number of days or number of hours.

For days;

Authentication > User Groups > Add Group | Edit Group includes two new settings for Number of days in the future the account can be created and Maximum duration of account (in days)

For hours:

User Interface > Templates > Add Template | Edit Template > Accounts > Account Duration

I got it to work.

I am not sure what I did wrong, but I think confused the "template" with a user template and not what it actually is, a language template.
