SCCM 2012 SP1 OSD in 802.1X environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dears, 

    we have SCCM 2012 SP1 CU5, and the network team has enabled the CISCO port security (802.1X network authentication) on the desktops VLAN and OSD is not working since then until port security is removed. i've seen some guides regarding how to make SCCM 2007 OSD, WinPE 3.0 and 802.1X work together like : http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/lakey81/archive/2011/07/06/configuring-802-1x-network-authentication-for-winpe-3-0-and-configmgr-deployments.aspx  , but ot's very confusing.

    does anybody have the same scenario with SCCM 2012, WinPE 5.0, and 802.1X . please help me.

  • Hello,

    What confused you here? 802.1X authentication is to authenticate before sending network packages. That is why we need import netwrok profile to win pe for anthentication. The point is authenticate, so I think it won't be any difference between ConfigMgr 2012 and 2007.
