Title802.1x Inner-tunnel Name Is Not Updated When Proxy Radius Server Returns User-Name Attribute
Symptoms
1.  When NAC is configured to Proxy 802.1x RADIUS traffic, it does not retain the inner-tunnel username that is returned via the "User-Name" attribute / RADIUS Accept packet from the back-end RADIUS server.  Due to this, any rules in NAC that match on this username will be effected.

2.  Username column in NAC Manager displays outer-tunnel username rather than the inner tunnel username.


*Note that NTLM authentication is not affected by this and the issue only pertains to Proxy RADIUS.
Environment
NAC versions 7.x
Cause
This is a bug in the NAC code.
Resolution
Upgrade to a future version that contains a fix.

*As of July 14, 2016 this is a new issue and there is no workaround available.
Issue will be addressed in future release of NAC / Extreme Control.
