My 802.1x problem

I straightened out the Windows side of my 802.1x issue (previously discussed here), but was still having problems on the switch side of things.

Basically, the switch would request authentication twice. Which is not just weird but wrong. After a bunch of back and forth with the excellent folks at Cisco tech support, I upgraded the code on the catalyst switch and the aberrant behavior stopped.

Serves me right for running 5 or 6 year old code. :)
