I've got a recommendation from Extreme's empoloyee (he is really expert!) to configure netlogin mac-based auth. (I need it to bring more data like Device Type and Operationg System from identity-management on Summits to Netsight. NAC is also involved).
"For MAC-auth your users does not need to enter anything at all – they just connecting to the network as usual and NAC automatically does the mac-auth (for visibility purpose only) . When you add “switch” into the NAC switch database , you can select “no attribute to send back” , in this case MAC-auth happens but no policy will be applied to the port , so clients connected as usual but NAC knows everything about the client and provide this details in NMS screens/reports."
How can I configure that "MAC-auth for visibility purpose only"? I've tried to do so many times and every time switch just blocks a port when I attach any device...
Please, help! Does somebody understand how exactly should I do configure mac-based netlogin auth on summit taking into the consideration the recommendation above?
Many thanks in advance,
