    Correct me if i am wrong:
    In NetLogin by mac address, the user and password sent by the Summit to the NPS are capitalized(uppercase) . As the case sensitice password, how can I make the switch to send the password in lowercase?

    Best Regards
    VB

    Hi Vitor,

    Current implementation does not have an option to change the case of "user-password" attribute to lower case so this case be further submitted as a feature request to check if this can be implemented in the future

    Hi Vitor,

    I believe you can chance the password to upper case in Active Directly, i would say that is an easy option.

    since the packet is generated by the CPU I am not sure if a script can do it, i would say it has to be a change in the code...Still i would check with the team if this is possible via a script.

    Hi Vitor,

    Unfortunately it is not possible via script.

    Hi,

    same problem at my current project - several thousands mac addresses are part of global NPS in lower case because this is HP switching default. EXOS now only support upper case ...

    HP / Brocade / Cisco support to define the format of mac authentication (upper / lower case ....)

    This is a overdue feature!

    Is there maybe a way to transform the mac format if it goes through Extreme NAC Gatway ?

    Is there maybe a way in NPS to ignore password checking (because i think, only password checking in NPS is case sensitive, not username) ?

    Regards

    Ok. In the meanwhile is it possible to run a script in the switch to change the password to lower case?
