802.1X operating messages



Port <port-list> is not an authenticator.
The ports in the port list have not been enabled as 802.1X authenticators. Use this command to enable the ports as authenticators:
Switch(config)# aaa port-access
authenticator e 10
Port <port-list> is not a supplicant.

Occurs when there is an attempt to change the supplicant configuration on a port that is not currently enabled as a supplicant. Enable the port as a supplicant and then make the desired supplicant configuration changes. See Enabling a switch port as a supplicant.

No server(s) responding.

This message can appear if you configured the switch for EAP-RADIUS or CHAP-RADIUS authentication, but the switch does not receive a response from a RADIUS server. Ensure that the switch is configured to access at least one RADIUS server. (Use show radius.) If you also see the message Can’t reach RADIUS server <x.x.x.x> , try the suggestions listed for that message (see Messages related to RADIUS operation).

LACP has been disabled on 802.1X port(s).
Error configuring port <port-list> LACP and 802.1X cannot be run together.

To maintain security, LACP is not allowed on ports configured for 802.1X authenticator operation. If you configure port security on a port on which LACP (active or passive) is configured, the switch removes the LACP configuration, displays a notice that LACP is disabled on the port(s), and enables 802.1X on that port.Also, the switch will not allow you to configure LACP on a port on which port access (802.1X) is enabled.
