Mac auth with Aruba IAP 225!

Hi All, Please help with below two queries.


1) I have a IAP 225 cluster and want to achieve MAC auth for 103 users. can i import all this mac from an specified format(e.g. in excel sheet etc). for ease of implementation.


2) i want users to get authenticated with mac as well as .1x. i.e a user should be given access only if he has a entry in mac as well as in radius server. Is that Possible? if yes please guide procedure as well.


Thanks in advance!!

Do you have ClearPass?

I don't believe this is possible as both require 802.1x authentication. There is an option to use either within IAP. But I haven't seen one for both.
Clear pass may offer this year type of options.

You can use both for your authentication.

for that you have to enable mac auth in IAP and then you have to add the mac id [remember in mac auth user name and password both are mac id] in authentication source

[for large implement is not a good idea to use both]

So at first user will complete mac auth then user auth..

This does seem to describe it very well for Instant.

Is there a limit to how many devices can be added with MAC authentication? Because I know there is a 128 limit to manually blacklisting.
