Hi

I followed the Aerohive radius server training document to create a radius server in an Aerohive switch with an external AD database (win 2008 r2). and update hive manager to 6.4 r1 and related firmware for all APs and switches.

The certificate use Aervhive default_CA.pem. I copy to test windown 7 laptop and another win 8 client

It quite strange, now I can connect all windows clients to my 802.1X SSID  but andiod does not work.

I remembered before I never insert certificate manually to all andiod device it works before and only windows device need insert certificate.

is that because 6.4r1 certificate change? any ideas?

Seriously, don't use the default Aerohive default certificate! :P

Run your own private CA or buy a commercial certificate.

There's great information here on the certificate properties you're looking for:

A DV commercial certificate is cheap:

(There is an outstanding Android issue where you can't specify the server name, that's on Google's backlog of things to fix.)
