TitleNetSight Policy Manager 6.2 and higher have no separate Role Action section for Wireless Controllers
Question
In Policy Manager 6.1 and earlier the addition of a Wireless Controller would add a new section to the Role Action area dedicated to Wireless Controllers.  Why is that section is no longer seen as of version 6.2?

  • NetSight Policy Manager version 6.2 and higher
  • Wireless Controller
  • HWC
  • Extreme Management Center
Answer
In version 6.2 the Role Action section that used to be separate for wired/wireless was consolidated so that only one Action is available for both Wired and Wireless devices for a Role.  If the same role is to be used for both device types but you want different actions then a new domain must be created to manage the role differently for wired vs. wireless devices.

In 6.2 and higher there is conversion logic such that when you open the domain and a Role is detected that has both a wireless controller setting and a wired setting for the role's default action, it will ask which to use for that role.  If the actions are different, you must pick one for the role.  It can be used for both wired and wireless.  However, if the action for the devices is different then a new role must be created for the different action.
