NAC Manager for more than 40 devices

Unanswered Question
Oct 15th, 2008

Does anybody Know if there is a way to manage more than 40 NAC Servers with the NAC Manager Appliance. According to the documentation the maximum number of devices that you can manage with a NAC Manager Appliance is 40.

I think you need to have a cluster of NAC Manager appliance to handle more than 40 devices but I cannot find any documentation that supports this type of deployment.


I have this problem too.

There isn't a current model of Manager that can manage more that 40 devices.

Clean Access Manager (CAM) Licenses

The Clean Access Manager (CAM) (NAC Appliance MANAGER) is licensed based on the number of Clean Access Servers (CASs) it supports. There is a 3, 20, and 40 (Super Manager) standalone or failover license for the CAM:

•Cisco Clean Access Lite Manager (CAM Lite)

-NAC-3310 hardware platform

-Supports up to 3 CASs (or 3 HA-CAS pairs)

-Manager for CASs supporting 500 or fewer users, including NAC network module

•Cisco Clean Access Standard Manager

-NAC-3350 hardware platform

-Supports up to 20 CASs (or 20 HA-CAS pairs).

-Manager for any size CAS, including NAC network module

•Cisco Clean Access Super Manager

-NAC-3390 platform only

-Supports up to 40 CASs (or 40 HA-CAS pairs)

-Manager for any size CAS, including NAC network module

You can 'cluster' Cisco NAC Managers into pairs but this for High Availibility and will not expand the number of supported systems.
