Hi Friends ,
We are now doing most provisioning using DEP and we have a JSS in the DMZ so clients can go through the process no matter where they are located . One problem we have is when the the user is going through the Welcome Wizard process on their MacBook , select the Eduroam network , it only asks for a password and not the username ... so cant proceed . I have confirmed with the network team that we have eduroam auth set to 802.1X authentication using TTLS . Is anyone successfully connecting to eduroam while going through the Apple Welcome wizard ?
Process works for iPad but have confirmed iOS WiFi requirements are a bit different for this to work .
"The macOS Setup Assistant supports 802.1X authentication with username and password credentials using TTLS or PEAP."
About time to, our entire Wi-Fi infrastructure is all user authenticated and it has been a real pain not being able to connect during Setup.
I figured it was on the way given it appeared in iOS a couple of versions ago.
@Look It really went under the radar, I only came across it by chance when doing some testing on our dev wifi network.
@Slawford We're using Cisco here. Ask your network team if you have both WPA1 and WPA2 PSK enabled (for legacy reasons). We found that when both are enabled for the SSID, it will cause the problem you're seeing. Either one can be enabled independently, just not together. If you have a dev network available for testing, ask them to duplicate your production SSID and remove WPA1. Let me know how you go!
