Is it possible to make the ISE guest server redundant ?


We've an ISE cluster of two ISE nodes.

The ISE guest server works fine on the primairy ISE node.

MAC address of the guest client is set in the map 'GuestDevices' after accepting the AUP policy.

The the ISE sents the COA and the client authenticates again and is punt in the guest vlan.

But when the primairy ISE is offline, I see the guest portal AUP page on the secondairy ISE node.

I can accept the AUP policy, and I get an error message.

On the secondairy ISE I see that the COA to the switch is sent, to clear the session to the primairy ISE....

But the COA request should ask to clear the session to the secondairy ISE ( the primairy ISE is offline ).

Should it be possible to configure the ISE guest functionality redundant in an ISE cluster?

Hi, we're running ISE version

Hi, we're running ISE version 1.2 patch 9.

The url you sent me is for ISE 1.0

I can't find this for ISE version 1.2, but it seems to be the same behavior.

Is this info also available  for ISE version 1.2 ?
