A customer of ours would like to set up a WLAN where corporate devices are authenticated using machine authentication. They have both Windows and Mac devices, so setting up an autoenrollment GPO seems out of the question. Do any of you guys know how Mac devices behave in regards to PEAP/MSCHAPv2 machine authentication?
Thanks a lot

When you state "machine authentication"; are you referring to authenticating via the computer account rather than username or are you referring to the "enforce machine authentiation" setting in the 802.1X Authentication Profile on the controller?
I believe you are referring to the former....if so, are the Mac devices bound/joined to AD? If they are, I have some customers who have the Mac computers connect to the wireless through a System Profile on the Mac. This allows the Mac to authenticate as the computer name rather than the logged on user. Refer to http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3326. I don't know the details beind the setup, .......but it is possible and seems to work well.
