NAC failover

Hi,

I need a clarification on failover of CAM /CAS. can i use a Wanlink for the failover connection instead of a serial cable or a cross over cable when the two NAC appliances are kept apart.

Also can I use certificates in addition to authentication types like RADIUS, LDAP etc.

can somebody help me

thanks

Re: NAC failover

Hi Sathappan,

From your experience what is the Best Practice you would suggest for a situation where we are contemplating having a failover pair of CAMs, one CAM each located 25 miles apart?

Is it better to have the pair physically in one location and connected by both serial and ethernet1?

Or can we assume that we have a healthy amount of network level resiliency and fault tolerance between the two CAMs and we won't encounter situations where we have an Active-Active situation.

Thank you in advance.

Re: NAC failover

Hi Paul,

You can't have the both the CAM separated apart. This feature as far as I know, hasnot been added to NAC.

Both the CAM should be in a single location. Ethernet connection for failover is more than enough.
