MAC OS-X and authentication via ACS 5.2

Unanswered Question

My customer has a large installed base of MACs, all connected via controller-based (5508) WLAN. He wants to grant access to the network

based on the device's mac addresses and move the WLAN-clients to a specific VLAN.

I added all devices with their mac addresses to the ACS internal identity store for hosts.

According to the following message the client sends the user-login credentials (chegger) within the RADIUS-request instead of the clients mac address and of course it has to fail. 

After many configuration changes, I ended up always with the same result.

Has anybody made the same experiences with MACs ? Can somebody give me a hint ?

I really appreciate very much any reply.

Best regards


The ACS-configuration is documented in the attachment
