Summary0001229: No locationLog entry is created if the NAS-Port field is blank in the RADIUS request
DescriptionIf a user's equipment does not send port information in the radius request the locationlog table in the database will not allow an entry to be created for the clients on that device since the "port" column is not allowed to be null.
Additional Informationemail snippet from the support list:

My wifi equipment (Xirrus) does not send the radius value for NAS-Port when using RADIUS MAC (read NOT 802.1x but still RADIUS) This causes an entry not to be made in the locationlog table in the DB since the port field is not allowed to be null. The user will be able to register as if everything is normal but when PF goes to flip the vlan it will fail because of the missing locationlog entry.

A simple fix for me was to remove the no null restriction from the column in the table but that may cause problems for wired deployments. A better fix might be to use the radius attributes to sense if the user is on a wireless connection and IF the port value is blank, populate it with some generic value since the actual value is not important to the NAS.

A missing locationlog entry BREAKS packetfence (at least for vlan deployments), so when one is not made for any reason some type of notification really should be given to someone.
