WinPE and 802.1x deployment... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

     I am involved in a project to deploy new Vista PCs to our network using WINPE. We are using certificate authentication via wired 802.1x

    The problem I am running into is that the PCs when booting up are unable to authenticate on to the network to access the resources on our W2003 servers due to the 802.1x authentication issue.

    We had no problem configuring our W2003 server components, our Nortel switches to make it work and, existing wired clients are able to authenticate fine.  It is only the WINPE clients cannot due to the fact that the OS is not installed.

    What can I do to make this work? 

    Thanks a million in advance for any help on this issue.
