Wondering what options we have with the Mobility Switches around supporting wired dot1x with CP fall back from a single switch port? The scenario would involve a dumb switch hung off a single switch port with a need to support dot1x and CP services simultaneously.

The tunneled-node feature available on the Aruba mobility switche - S3500 can do what you are looking for. A single port can be used for 802.1x auth, mac auth and captive portal.
But if your looking to hang a dumb switch to a s3500 and use multiple-authentications for users on the ports of the dumb switch, then i am not sure.

There was a typo in the last message, it should be "dumb switch" instead of "dump switch" as:
As long as the dumb switch does not drop the EAP packets for dot1x, dot1x authentication with CP fallback will work with tunneled-node.
