Hi Guys,

We have a 15 to 16 wireless clients in our organization and one of them getting "Validating Identity" error on Wirless connection.

These are handled by WLC and security is 802.1x through radius server.

I did not found any issue with wireless settings on client machine.

It will automatically resolved but did not found any resolution.

Kidnly advice what could be the issue.

telnet or ssh into the controller and run a debug client while one of the problematic clients is attempting to authenticate:

Also check the radius server's event viewer for failed authentication attempts
