AP versus zd authentication

Hi all,

Does anyone know if you can specify that Radius authentication be done by either the ZD controller or each individual AP ?

I can't seem to find anything on it in the forums...  It's a bit more work to set up for individual AP's on the NPS server, but it provides better redundancy.

The ZoneDirector is the NAS to your AAA server for 802.1x. 

The SmartZone platform allows APs to initiate/handle the NAS function.

So if I am using a ZD, the 802.1x authentication to NPS cannot be done by the AP's ?
