Enable 802.1X authentication on selected ports

This task configures the individual ports you want to operate as 802.1X authenticators for point-to-point links to 802.1X-aware clients or switches, and consists of two steps:
  1. Enable the selected ports as authenticators.

  2. Specify either user-based or port-based 802.1X authentication.

(Actual 802.1X operation does not commence until you activate 802.1X authentication on the switch.)

If you enable 802.1X authentication on a port, the switch automatically disables LACP on that port. However, if the port is already operating in an LACP trunk, you must remove the port from the trunk before you can configure it for 802.1X authentication.
