TitleIs it possible to issue notification from NAC in the moment new end system is being seen trough the 'End-System Added' and before the Resolving IP Address finished
Question
  • Is it possible to issue notification from NAC in the moment new end system is being seen trough the 'End-System Added' and before the  Resolving IP Address  finished
Environment
  • NAC 6.x
  • NAC 7.x
Answer
 
  • 'End-System Added' event is the trigger when a new MAC address is seen.
  • However, this notification is generated after IP address process is completed (not on Resolving IP Address).
  • No notification or event is being fired before Resolving IP Address finishes. Although this might be interesting  for clients that wants to get a notification for every system which connects to the network.
  • In such cases "Endsystem" which is firstly connected, is in the state "resolving ip address" no notification is sent out.
  • When the system changed to "´MAC to IP Resolution Failed" notification is being fired. It has been also seen in the lab that some system only going to the state "resolving ip address", thus this should also trigger notification for this event, however it does not.
  • This is a known behaviour i.e. bug in progress.
