ah_auth: Can't handle attribute id 55, attr_len:16

Seem to get this message in the AP logs when windows 10 tries to connect to it. Does not seem to happen to all (29 AP's).  Just this one.  Have reset firmware and reloaded the configuration.  Last thing to try is take it back to a hard reset and reload everything again. Not all Windows 10 devices mind you. Mostly seems to be a problem with laptops.

Also all Macs, iOS, Android and even Kindle are all connecting without issue.

Hi Daniel,

Hmm...

Attribute id 55 would likely be Event-Timestamp. That should not be present in an Access-Accept.

What is acting as the RADIUS server here?

Thanks,

Nick

So found the problem.  After resetting the configuration, all of the broadcast settings were set to Auto. All except the 2.4Ghz.  This was on power level 1.  This would explain why only certain devices couldn't connect.

Reminds me of my favorite tech support song from Sesame Street. "One of these things is not like the other......."

Oh well.  Found the configuration issue while "calmly" going through every detail. This morning we were in the heat of things and now here we are.

Thanks for your response.  Still not sure why that error is being logged like crazy.  No RADIUS servers here. All preshared keys.

Hi Daniel,

After further investigation, this is a cosmetic-only, non-service affecting logging issue in HiveOS 6.5rX where newer versions of HiveOS are also in use in an environment.

I have brought it to the attention of the right people, I understand that we will seek to get this sorted for the release after HiveOS 6.5r7.

Thanks,

Nick
