If a device is not in the database, it will automatically moved to the guest network, if there is a function implemented that allows this to happen. This function can be implemented on the switch or on a submitted port. Even so this function decreases the security, because everyone can have access to the assigned network and is therefore not recommended. If you decide to use this function it will connect with the server. After it is connected, patches and/or updates will follow and alarm messages will send the information to the IT department.
To add a new computer for the database you need to enter de VLAN the MAC-Address and the Site. To have an overview to every component, every switch was added in the “PNAC” module, in the “Active Network Components” field to be exact. You have to enter the IP address and the name of the switch so that the radius server can assign a request to a switch or a switchgroup. You can define new sets of rules for access on the switchgroups.
