Hello,

Configuration is done via NAC Manager or Extreme Management Center.
What do you mean by internal db?

If you are referring to terminating 802.1x lcoally at the NAC then you need to create an Advanced AAA Config and setup an LDAP Config as well, then tie the LDAP Config to a line in the AAA that is set with an Authentication Method of LDAP Authentication. 

Thee are some NAC Manager screen shots in this article:

You can also use the NetSight Help.

you need to change basic AAA config to Advanced = https://emc.extremenetworks.com/content/oneview/docs/control/access_control/docs/l_ov_ia_at_aaa_conf...

Then it is easy.

Good luck
