hello expert
i am deploying wired 802.1x, with Cisco switch and NPS as radius server.
the problem is while i point radius to a previous NPS, it works well, but new built up NPS doesn't, while i am testing authentication on the switch, i got the following info
SW-01#test aaa group radius MYNAME ******** legacy
Attempting authentication test to server-group radius using radius
No authoritative response from any server.
my understand is the server not response authentication request.

also another strange is while i create new radius client in NPS via /24 network, it show me the following message, it said license issue(check attach please), if i create the client with a host, it no problem, also all works on previous server, i am circus does NPS need license?

could you let me know whats wrong with the server?

thank you

    Accepted Solution

    Radius clients are usually single clients, no address ranges, nevertheless Enterprise edition accepts such settings.

    As Enterprise edition is unlimited, I guess that the test does not happen.
    So to be really sure about this, you may have to enter 50 single radius clients and the 51st may fail.
