Usage Information

The dot1x static-mab command enables static MAB (mac auth bypass) and configures the associated profile on a dot1x interface. Static MAB bypasses the authentication server for the supplicant MAC addresses configured in the associated profile.

Before you enable static MAB, you must do the following:
  • Enable MAC authentication bypass on the port by configuring the dot1x mac-auth-bypass command.
  • Ensure that no configured profile exists at the time of configuring the static-mab command.

  • Use this command in Interface Batch Mode to enable static MAB in a dual-homing setup.
