I am setting up a proof of concept lab for a NAC installation.
I am using Cisco Catalyst 3550 and 2950 switches (the actual environment is using 3750 and 2960 and 2950 switches) and have the NAC set up in central L3 OOB configuration. In this configuration i have a single NAS and NAM at the "MAIN_SITE" and then two branch sites "BRANCH1" and "BRANCH2".
At the main site, the OOB works fine and when a user logs on, the port is moved from the unauthenticated VLAN (290) to the role based VLAN (200) However, at the "branches" the switches are not placing the port into the role based VLAN, nor if a port is in VLAN 200 and a PC is plugged into that port does the port switch to VLAN 290 (unauthenticated).
Sniffing the traffic with Wireshark i see the SNMP sets being sent by the NAM to the switch telling it to place the port into VLAN 200, but the switch is not doing it.
My write strings are set up correctly and the NAM is able to set up the initial commands on the switch for the NAC ("snmp trap mac-notification added" commands to the ports).
Can anyone say what is wrong?
