WLC 5760 multiple SSIDs with MAC filtering

Unanswered Question

Dear All,


I am implementing a wireless network with 5760 WLCs. The client requires a few SSIDs with MAC-based authentication. So I created different MAC filters using the commands "aaa authorization network MAC_FILTER01 local", "aaa authorization network MAC_FILTER02 local" etc


These filters are bound to different SSIDs using the commands "mac-filtering MAC_FILTER01" "mac-filtering MAC_FILTER02" etc. and users are added to their required MAC filters using the commands "username <mac-address> mac aaa attribute list MAC_FILTER01", "username <mac-address> mac aaa attribute list MAC_FILTER02" etc.


Now I am facing a serious issue - users belonging to any one MAC filter can connect to the all SSIDs. It seems like the MAC addresses added to the controller under different filter names are going to a common database, thereby providing access to users to all SSIDs irrespective of their MAC filter.


Is it a limitation of local database of 5760? Has anyone faced the same issue? How can I implement independent MAC filters bound to different SSIDs?
