    Hello all,

    we are currently testing Huawei CE5731 switches with Clearpass 6.10.5.185484.
    Wired 802.1x now works with the switch without any problems.
    We would like to give the switch the user VLAN in the profile with radius attributes, there is a document from Huawei for this. It was also configured this way, unfortunately the switch does not switch the VLAN.

    Here the Config:

    we also tested this config:


    Maybe someone has another idea

    Thanks a lot

    Many greetings

    the RADIUS attributes are the classic IETF ones that all the vendors should support.
    perhaps you are missing some switch command . Hope the link below helps

    You should use the RADIUS enforcement to return the VLAN during the authentication.
    The RADIUS_DynAuthZ is a 'Change-of-Authorization' or 'Dynamic Authorization' or 'RFC3579' (which all is different names for the same).

    Make sure the VLAN is configured on the switch, and check logging to possibly see why the attribute is not assigned.

    Also, make sure that your service is not in 'Monitoring mode' because it will not actually return attributes in that mode.

    Herman is referring to the enforcement profile type.
