Two Mac Addresses for Cisco 1522 AP

Hello friends,

I have few Cisco 1522 Outdoor APs in a Controller based environment.

we want to implement 802.1x (MAB) for these Access Points.

Problem is:

When I type the "show mac address-table interface gx/x/x" command on the switchport where the AP is connected,

it shows two MAC addresses.


access-switch#sh mac address int g1/0/23

          Mac Address Table


Vlan    Mac Address       Type        Ports

----    -----------       --------    -----

112    2037.06c6.xxxx    DYNAMIC     Gi1/0/23

112    2037.06c6.yyyy    DYNAMIC     Gi1/0/23

Total Mac Addresses for this criterion: 2



Is this normal? because all other Indoor APs shows only one MAC addresses.

any suggestions or comments are highly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Is the other mac address one of the MAP's that is joined to that RAP?

No. i checked that. the second MAC address is unique..

When ever I try to authenticate the AP using 802.1x(MAB), the switchport tries with either of these two MAC addresses.

I don't know if that is normal or not, since I don't have access to a 15xx.  I also didn't thnki that AP's support MAB but if you have other ap's working, then i guess it does.
