802.1x and RDP Issues

Hello everyone,

We recently deployed 802.1x authentication on our campus network. However there's a peculiar issue we are facing when RDP'ing into a machine. Basically the behavior is, RDP session connects fine, but the session freezes and kicks the machine off the network. Then I can no longer ping it or remote into it.

We setup a restricted VLAN where if 802.1x fails, it fails over to the internet only VLAN (2350). I noticed from the switch logs after the RDP attempt, the switch puts the machine into this VLAN. See below for switch logs:

Any ideas?
