How to solve 'Default DTLS passphrase is in use'

  • Updated 1 year ago
I'm getting the minor error 'Default DTLS passphrase is in use' for a while.
I've read already a lot of articles but none article has gave me a solution.

How and where can I change the 'Default DTLS'. What does it do? Does a changed DTLS raise problems when new devices are added to the network? 

Anyone who can give me a simple and clear solution?

I'm also intereseted in a solution. We are using Hivemanager NG virtual appliance and I don't found a method to set the DTLS passphrase.

Hello IT Tim and Marcel,

The Default DTLS passphrase alarm is simply a warning that your device is using factory default settings and needs a complete configuration push in order for your network settings to be implemented. This alarm should go away when you push a complete configuration out to your devices.

If you've already pushed a complete configuration out to your APs and you are still getting this error we'd want to make sure that the configuration is actually taking. To do this I would SSH in to your device and run the command "show run". This will show you the running configuration on that device, so you can see if your configuration is actually on the device at that time.

Hope this helps!

Hello Sam,
thank you for the answer.
Maybe, after a reboot the message appears again.
I will check that Thursday and let you know.

Hi Marcel

If you still receive this message, let us know what version of Hivemanager and HiveOS you are using so we can check for any known issues it might relate to.

I already tried the solution 'a complete configuration push' and the DTLS warning is still coming back.

Hi all,

This is acknowledged and confirmed by me. I am working to get this corrected for a future release of HMNG. We are tracking this as CFD-2412.

Thanks,

Nick

Any news...can we pick up the pace on this?  Having several issues with this since the last NG update.

Hi Todd,

We are looking to make architectural changes in this area with NG as soon as we can.

This will not make the next immediate release, however. This is because we need to be especially careful to avoid disrupting management connectivity via CAPWAP with any changes we make.

This issue is more complex to resolve behind the scenes than it may appear at first sight.

What other issue(s) is this causing you other than the log spam?

Thanks,

Nick
