I was wondering if anyone has seen this issue, where I have setup a 802.1x config profile for my macs. In our office we have two WiFi networks: 1) 802.1x (certificate based) network 2) Open Guest network. Our macs know both networks exist. We modified the preferred network so that the 802.1x is at the top of the list. When we reboot a mac, it connects to the guest network for some reason. When I manually connect to the 802.1x network it works just fine. When I manually turn off WiFi on the menu bar and turn it back on it connects to the 802.1x network just fine. Last test we turning off AutoJoin on the guest network and we reboot and it does connect to 802.1x network. Only seems like when I reboot my machine, it chooses the guest network over the 802.1x network when both are set to AutoJoin.
P.S. We use Jamf Connect and have FV2 enabled.
Anyone else see this issue?
From what I read, JAMF Connect does not support this configuration.
User-level authentication to an 802.1x network (such as EAP-PEAP and EAP-TTLS) is not supported at the macOS login window with Jamf Connect. "
In our environment, if someone connects to our guest network once on a device, it'll remember it thereafter and always pop up the guest prompts even if on LAN. As if the guest network takes precedence. Everyone should be using the main WiFi access point if they have credentials.
I run this script weekly to clear up any devices getting the annoying guest Wi-FI prompts because they clicked the wrong access point.
