Does Arubaos honour RADIUS Session-Timeout attributes even if user role has reauth disabled?


Our standard user role has reauth interval disabled. By default on all our dot1x auths I have our RADIUS servers pass back  Session-Timeout / Termination-Action attributes. Will ArubaOs honour these?


When receiving RADIUS attributes in access accept packets, do they take precedence over any locally defined settings if there is a clash?
