Getting 802.1x to work

    We tried to enable 802.1x on an NMC 9631 v6.7.2 without success. Firstly, we need to insert a CA certificate, which is strange because the NMC does not need to verify it's own certificate. Anyway, that certificate is accepted. So no problem there. Secondly, we need to enter a key file in either PEM or DER format which are both simply not accepted by the NMC, The former resulting in a format error and the latter simply not giving a message at all.

    Any ideas?

    Bump. Am I the only one having this issue?

    Hi Erwin,

    Is the private key encrypted? I believe the private key needs to be RSA private un-encrypted - I don't think using an encrypted key is supported.

    The private key is not encrypted and is readible with "openssl rsa -text -in <key_name>". Although the page does offer an option for encrypted keys which suggests that an encrypted key would be acceptable. Nevertheless, we have tried this with an unencrypted key.

    The private key has to be encrypted.  I have been trying to get this working off and on for months, still without success.  At one point I was able to get the CA, key and host certs on the nmc but saw via packet capture that a decrypt error was tanking the TLS handshake, so starting fresh this week.  I will let you know if I can get it going.
