Yes, that's exactly what sites does, clients are still able to authenticate with 802.1X.
But isn't working,

I'm using V2210 firmware 10.31.01.0048 and AP3805.

With the controller UP, the APs were requesting authetication to the NPS of the site. With the controller DOWN we don't have requests. The users that were connected maintain the connection.

the document in the Gtac is not clear about sites.

Have you read the user manual...

OK, it should work, I will investigate why it isn't working, no request received at NPS.

Hi Valter,

Hi Valter,

If you remove one of the Radius servers does it work?

Done the troubleshooting. The problem was the Radius Server not available.

This a Long infrastructure, we have 4 Radius servers.

What hapens, is that we are only using 1 Radius Servers, because of instability when using 2 radius servers in sites config.

Hi Valter,

Is this referencing a case you have open with GTAC (01292083)?
