I have been asked to configure MAC Address authentication on a WLC4402 without the use of a RADIUS Server or Cisco ACS. I remember that an autonomous AP has a limit of 20 MAC Addresses in the local list.
Does anyone know if this limitation is still applied in the WLC4400 local list? I have seen that you can configure a maximum of 2048 entries in the local WLC database but does this include the MAC Address local list?
I looked in the 4.2 references and really can't find anything that specifies how a MAC filter entry is treated. However, in the 6.0 command reference, the "show database" command definitely indicates that a MAC filter entry is a part of the local user database:
> show database summary
Maximum Database Entries......................... 2048
Maximum Database Entries On Next Reboot.......... 2048
Yes, mac filters are part of the controller database, which is either 512,1024 or 2048. The database however, as you can see in Roberts's response contains guest users, excluded clients, local management users, AP certificates.
