8021x authentication with LDAP servers

Is there a good configuration guide  for setting up ldap authentication? I'm having trouble getting a customer configuration to work.

Are you using a RADIUS server or termination on the controller?


No RADIUS server:

Hi Playinpearls,


Tim's link is spot on in regards to setting up LDAP auth. The only thing from that link that I would tweak is how to test the solution. You can run a "aaa test-server" from the CLI. Or, in the GUI, you can go to the following:


Diagnostics > Network > AAA Test Server

Server Name > "Select your LDAP server"

Authentication Method > PAP


The GUI will prevent you from placing your username and password in cleartext on the CLI
