Hey Experts,

I'm looking to get any additional tips to configuring 802.1x authentication over wireless on a Cisco 5508 and 1142 AP's. The config on the WLC is very straightforward: one WLAN that will use 802.1x to authenticate users. We have one ACS and AD server to handle the authentication process. I'm still verifying what type of authentication we will be doing, EAPOL, EAP-TLS, ETC

 Is the configuration on the WLC as simple as configuring the RADIUS server and enabling 802.1x for the SSID on the controller? Are there any cool testing methods in case authentication does not work? It seems pretty straight forward, but I'm looking for any gotchas that may arise that you have experienced. I'm not a wireless guy per say. If you need more info, I will gladly provide. Thanks again guys.
