What should be noticed when S series switches connect to Symantec RADIUS servers

When connecting an S series switch (except the S1700 switch) to a Symantec RADIUS server, take the following precautions:
�?The Symantec RADIUS server can only be used as an authentication server, but cannot be used as an authorization or accounting server. Ensure that the RADIUS server is not configured as an authorization or accounting server.
�?When the Symantec RADIUS server performs 802.1x authentication for users, perform the following configurations on the switch.
a. Run the undo dot1x handshake command to disable handshake between the switch and 802.1x online users.
b. Run the dot1x authentication-method eap command to configure EAP relay authentication for 802.1x users.
