Are you trying to use RADIUS server running on OS X or just use Open Directory as an identity store?

Just like Active Directory and OpenLDAP, you can do it without a RADIUS server, but you will need to install an EAP-GTC supplicant on clients that don't support the EAP method (most don't support it natively).

 

If you want to do basic username/password authentication natively on almost all 802.1X-capable clients, you need to setup a RADIUS server.

 

These are not vendor limitations, they are client implementation and standard limitations.

Like I said, if you want to do this without a RADIUS server, you will need to install an EAP-GTC supplicant on all devices that do not support it natively.

 

If you don't want to do that, you will need to stand up a RADIUS server.

So we can do that with Clearpass act as an authetication server right?

Yes, ClearPass is a RADIUS server. You would use Open Directory as an LDAP
authentication source.
