VMclients unable to get the IP address

We have a anchor Foreign WLAN setup . The SSID is using the L3 webauth security . The SSID is anchored to the anchor controller . The setup is working fine that the clients get the webpage from the anchor controller and the IP as expected . The issue is that VM clients in the nettwork is not able to get the ip address .

Documents states that this is a limitation of cisco and inorder to overcome the issue we need to enable the Passive client option on the SSID .

Since we are using the L3 security i am not able to enable the Passive client option .

Hence i need to configure a SSID with L2 prifile in the anchor foreign setup ( need to get the IP range from the Anchor dynamic interface ) and the VM should get the IP . Please help me to get this done

thanks in Advance

Re: VMclients unable to get the IP address

Hi Nishad,

See this post:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/329343

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2065405

https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2087163

Starting in 7.0.116.0, cisco added support for non-cisco WGBs with the  passive client feature on a wlan. This feature will also apply to VMware  and virtual clients -- it is available on the 2100, 2500, 5500 WLCs,  although it is not available on the 4400 series (WISM/3750) due to  architecture limitations.

you can try enabling the passive client feature on your WLAN to see if this helps resolve the issue.

Re: VMclients unable to get the IP address

VM clients in bridge mode is still an issue. Their workaround right now is to have your VM client in NAT or shared mode. I run Parallel's on my Mac and can't get an IP for both the client and bridged VM.

HI Scot ,

As per cisco docs  the passive client option will resolve the issue 

Is there any one who has got the VM setup working

Re: VMclients unable to get the IP address

If you search the forums, you can see others still have issues. You can also google it and you can see that they suggest passive client and disable IP Mac binding. Doesn't work for me.

VMclients unable to get the IP address

Hi scot

I have the similar setup (anchor - foreign )

I have used L2 security ( WEP ) and anchored the SSID to the anchor controller .

I enabled Passive client option ( WLAN >SSID >Advanced ) , The Mulicast option should be enabled globally .

All my Windows workstation VM client gets the IP , i am not sure on MAC OS .

Now my customer requirement is to use WPA+WPA2 option  and need to get authenticated with the LDAP ( integrated in controller )

Can anyone help me in configuring the setup .

Thanks in advance

Regards

Angus
