We are settign up netlogin dot1x mac on our Extreme switches and so far it works really nice for our setup. We can authenticate our cisco phones through the mac authentication and our computers through dot1x. We are a public school district, people want to bring their laptops in from home. Most of them just connect to our guest wireless, but we want them to be able to plug into our wired guest network as well.
We can either use authentication failure or service-unavailable depending on how we have the order of our authentication dbs.
So we have the service-unavailabe vlan set and assigned to all the netlogin ports. I enabled the service-unavailabe on the switch and then saved the config...Very Important to Remeber. Then plugged in my laptop from home and I was put onto the service-unavailabe vlan. It worked great. However after rebooting the switch to simulate a power outage, once the switch is fully booted the service-unavailabe isn't enabled anymore. When you give the command
show netlogin authentication service-unavailable vlan
it shows nothing. Doing a show netlogin and drilling down to the ports it shows that the service-unavailbe is in fact disabled.
I have done the same tests with authentication failure vlan and the same results happen.
Is there a reason why the commands are being preserved after a reboot?
Thanks for the help! (from bw447)
