Schedule a reccuring Guest account

Hello

We have recently rolled out a wireless lan using WLCs and Prime Infrastructure 1.3.

We have the lobby accounts working with creating guest accounts for web auth users.

We are looking at having an account permanantly set to allow access on the guest WLAN, but would like this account to automatically reset it's password to something autogenerated every week (or month). The new credentials would then be emailled to a certain email address.

I haven't been able to find an obvious way to configure this. Can this be done?

Schedule a reccuring Guest account

Hello,

To schedule a recurring guest user account in NCS, follow these steps:


Step 1 Log in to the NCS user interface as lobby ambassador.

Step 2 Choose Schedule Guest User from the Guest User page.


Note You can also schedule guest users from the Configure > Controller Template Launch Pad > Security > Guest User option.


Step 3 On the Guest Users > Scheduling page, enter the guest username. The maximum is 24 characters.

Step 4 Select  the check box to generate a username and password on every schedule. If  this is enabled, a different password is supplied for each day (up to  the number of days chosen). If this is disabled (unselected), one  password is supplied for a span of days. The generation of a new  password on every schedule is optional.

Step 5 Select  a Profile ID from the drop-down list. This is the SSID to which this  guest user applies and must be a WLAN that has Layer 3 authentication  policy configured. Your administrator can advise which Profile ID to  use.

Step 6 Enter a description of the guest user account.

Step 7 Choose limited or unlimited.

Limited:  From the drop-down list, choose days, hours, or minutes for the  lifetime of this guest user account. The maximum is 35 weeks.

Start time: Date and time when the guest user account begins.

End time: Date and time when the guest user account expires.

Unlimited: This user account never expires.

Days of the week: Select the check box for the days of the week that apply to this guest user account.

Step 8 Choose Apply To  to restrict a guest user to a confined area by selecting a campus,  building, or floor so that when applied, only those controllers and  associated access points are available. You can use AP grouping to  enforce access point level restrictions that determine which SSIDs to  broadcast. Those access points are then assigned to the respective  floors. You can also restrict the guest user to specific listed  controllers or a configuration group, which is a group of controllers  that has been preconfigured by the administrator.

From the drop-down lists, choose one of the following:

Controller List: select the check box for the controller(s) to which the guest user account is associated.

Indoor Area: choose the applicable campus, building, and floor.

Outdoor Area: choose the applicable campus and outdoor area.

Config group: choose the configuration group to which the guest user account belongs.

Step 9 Enter  the e-mail address to send the guest user account credentials. Each  time the scheduled time comes up, the guest user account credentials are  e-mailed to the specified e-mail address.

Step 10 Review the disclaimer information. Use the scroll bar to move up and down.

Step 11 Click Save to save your changes or Cancel to leave the settings unchanged.
