WPA2-PSK and MAC authorization with ClearPass

Have two quick questions that hopefully somebody would be able to answer.  Thanks in advance.

 

1.  Does it matter how the mac authentication profile is configured in regards to sending characters (lower, upper case) and delimiters (colon, period) when using ClearPass as an authentication server?  Basically, will ClearPass be able to use any format of mac address presented to it?  I know it matters when using a wireless controllers internal DB when performing mac authentication.

 

2.  When performing mac authentication, if ClearPass is configured to send a enforcement role back to the wireless controller, and that role does not exist on the wireless controller, will the configured Mac Authentication Default Role be assigned to the client?

1. Correct, it does not matter and clearpass can use any form.

2. Correct.  In the absence of that role it will assign whatever is configured as the 'Mac Authentication Default Role'.
