Hi,

Only with wlc, you can not make a lifetime for 30 days for a guest user.

it can be maximum for 24 hours not more then that and after that he must have to login again.

Check this timeout settings:

I hope this is what you wanted to know, if anything else then please clarify.

Did you try to put Lifetime

Did you try to put Lifetime in seconds(5184000) --> this is for 60 days

If you cant do this then there is No other way to do more then 30 days with wlc.

Either you must use Prime infra or ISE server to make it more.

Guest user with the latest

Guest user with the latest code is max 30 days. If you want a user to be lifetime, then you need to add the user not as a guest but a regular wireless user. These types of users don't expire, but lobby admin will not be able to add these types of users, only guest.

I know how to make them

I know how to make them lifetime however I would like to set up a user for 90 days.

30 days is max...You could

30 days is max...

You could always contact your local Cisco SE and have a feature request put in.  How long that would take and if they even entertain it is a different story.  Your only solution is to add or extend that guest account every 30 days.

scott from the below link it

scott from the below link it looks like a lifetime account is possible with guest by setting it to 0 is that not correct?

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/7-6/configuration-guide/b_cg76/b_cg76_chapter_010110.html#d87832e26a1635

From the Lifetime drop-down lists, choose the amount of time (in days, hours, minutes, and seconds) that this guest user account is to remain active. A value of zero (0) for all four text boxes creates a permanent account.

The "default" maximum is 30

The "default" maximum is 30 days or infinity if you specify the value "0" when you are initially creating the user. If I remember correctly is this the only way to do so on a WLC local user database. I only tested this trick with AirOS 7.4.
