TitleManagement Login to Brocade Switch Not Working With NAC
Symptoms
Unable to login to Brocade switch
Login to Brocade switch rejected by NAC
 
Environment
All NAC platforms
Cause
This is caused by the Brocade switch sending Mgmt-based RADIUS Requests in a format that is suitable to an Ethernet-based RADIUS Request due to the NAS-Port-Type being "Ethernet" rather than "Virtual" (with Virtual being typical for Mgmt Requests).
 
Resolution
This is functioning per design.
The workaround is to add in an Appliance Property to NAC, per below.
 
Additional notes
Add an Appliance Property that overrides the default logic in NAC and allows for the NAS-Port-Type to be Ethernet:
  1. In NAC Manager, right click on the NAC appliance and select Appliance Properties.
  2. Add a new entry with the following: 

Property Name: ADD_ADMIN_NAS_PORT_TYPE_1 
Property Value: 15 

(This is case sensitive) 

         3.  Save then Enforce. 
         4.  Re-test. 

*Note that you need to do this for all NAC appliances individually.
