How to identify used AP in RADIUS Accounting

We are using 5508 WLC with 3602 APs.

Looks like in RADIUS Authentication Called-Station-Id is the MAC address of the AP,

but in RADIUS Accounting Called-Station-Id is the MAC address of the WLC.

How can we change that behaviour so that Called-Station-Id will always be the MAC address of the AP?

Or is there some other way to identify the actual AP to which the user is connected?

Regards

Timo

The WLC doesn't send the AP name in any attribute so that would not be possible. Autonomous AP's it's possible because you can specify the NAS-ID of the AP.

Re: How to identify used AP in RADIUS Accounting

Hmm, I did some trial and error and solved the problem.

On the WLC, go to Security > AAA > RADIUS > Authentication and set the Call Station ID Type to "AP MAC Address:SSID". Even tho that seems to be for RADIUS Authentication, it changes the Called-Station-Id also for RADIUS Accounting.

Thx anyway
