Clarification on 802.1x support for 3560

Hi all: have a question on support of 802.1x support in 3560.

This (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps5528/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00801e85c4.html) one talks about 802.1x configuration on a 3560 with 12.1(19)EA1

But this tool http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/index.jsp tells me that IEEE 802.1x-VLAN Assignment is supported only on ED Releases 12.2(25)SEE1, 12.2(25)SED1, 12.2(25)SEC2, 12.2(25)SEB4, 12.2(25)SEA, 12.2(25)SE for 3560.

Does this mean Cisco is recommending using 12.2.(25) for 802.1x for these switches eventhough 12.1(19) supports it?

Thanks

Ravi

Only the following 3560 are supported in 12.1.19EA1:

Catalyst 3560-24PS

Catalyst 3560-48PS

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat3560/12119ea1/ol510401.htm#84866

The rest of 3560 have different minimum IOS requirements:

So, wht I am trying to say is, the feature, 802.1x-Vlan Assignment is supported in 12.1(19)EA1 but depending on what kind of 3560, it will require a minimum IOS. If your 3560 is either Catalyst 3560-24PS or Catalyst 3560-48PS, you can run 802.1x-Vlan Assignment on it.

bosalaza: According to your first pointer 3560-48PS supports 12.1(19)EA1. But according to table in second pointer, minimum OS supported on 3560-48PS is 12.2(18) SE. Any thoughts on what am I missing?

Thanks

bosalaza: is there a way to get details of the hardware via SNMP (ie if it is a 3560-48PS or something else)? I have a large set of switches and running sh ver will take me a few days. sysDescr doesnot seem to providing me the info.

Thanks

Re: Clarification on 802.1x support for 3560

is there an equivalent of show ver via SNMP? show version will definitely show you the model number. BTW, the second RN is a bit confusing, but note 802.1x-vlan assigment is definitely supported in 12.1(19EA code.
