sorry ... Yes! you can use wildvcard. But you cannot use the wildcard for 802.1X authentication, only Captive Portal

If I need to use SAN certificate, as I have one just need create a new CSR and get from public CA
Jakob DigranesSenior advisorCommented:
you need a certificate with subject which is FQDN for the Clearpass - installed on clearpass, and a certificate with installed on both aruba controllers.

when you say load balanced, do you med you have distributed APs using LMS and backup LMS?
