I search for a possibilty to authenticate an Extreme Networks AP on G3 and C5 switches via 802.1x, but the traffic that comes bridged@AP should NOT be authenticated.

So I found this here for XOS

And ask there for a solution for EOS Switches, and I got this:


But when I was not able to find anything about this feature "AP-Aware" oder "auth-override" on a LAB C5 with running

Am I wrong?

This feature was added to the SecureStack C5 in the firmware which is currently available.  It is best deployed using the ExtremeManagement PM.

There was a typo in the article for the firmware version.  The actual firmware version for B5/C5 is as that the feature was added according to release notes:

Changes and Enhancements in

This image is now Policy “AP-Aware” ready. This feature will be available when supported by Policy

I have just updated the article to yield the correct firmware version.

I found this while looking into this question:
"set policy profile” - a new optional prarmeter on command called auth-override [enable|disable], default is disable.

should ap-aware work on XOS switches with enable policy option?
auth overide is available, but seems not be working...
