    Hi

    We have recently installed Aruba Access Points AP 515, AP 535, AP 575 on Aruba 2930F POE + Switches.
    Since the deployment we have been receiving errors on ClearPass of Timeouts, "Client did not complete EAP transaction"

    Then when i checked on the access switches we have these logs attached.

    Interface that connect the Access Points

    Looks almost like a broadcast storm or similar. Drop TX happens in general when there is more traffic to send than the port can handle, like if you push 150Mbps of broadcast/multicast traffic to a 100Mbps port.

    Can you check 'show interface 1' and 'show run interface 1'?
    And as comparison the same for interface 20?

    What is your uplink speed?

    What also may give some insights is to run a packet capture on one of the ports (or a similar port) and see what the actual traffic is. Seems to me that those high Drop TX can't be good for your performance.
