Reset authenticator operation (optional)

While 802.1X authentication is operating, you can use the following aaa port-access authenticator commands to reset 802.1X authentication and statistics on specified ports.


aaa port-access authenticator <port-list>

On the specified ports, blocks inbound and outbound traffic and restarts the 802.1X authentication process. This happens only on ports configured with control auto and actively operating as 802.1X authenticators.

On the specified ports, forces reauthentication (unless the authenticator is in “HELD” state).

On the specified ports, clears authenticator statistics counters.
