Description (partial)

2960X stack is used
- 802.1x client starts authentication within access VLAN
- due to the way 802.1x is configured 802.1x client changes VLAN assignment (different VLAN for auth-fail / server-dead / no-response)
- depending on IOS version the following happens:
++ in 15.0(2)EX5 and older we observe that VLAN change happens and no port-security violation is reported as it is still the only one MAC address which is allowed, it just changes VLAN
++ in 15.2(2)E and later we observe that VLAN change happens and port-security violation is reported for MAC address that has changed its VLAN assigment

2960X stack
- 802.1x configuration with VLAN change possible
- port-security allowing exactly the amount of clients needed and not more
- 15.2(2)E and newer IOS
