I have been working as a Network Engineer for almost 5 years now. I have never encountered a scenario where I would need to configure a Cisco switch port as ForceUnauthorized (DOT1X).
According to the manual, ForceUnauthorized is to discard any traffic comes through this port. What is the importance of that? Why can't I just shut down the port?
Could anyone please give me a practical scenario where I would need such a configuration? Thanks.
