Description (partial)

After reload of switch, LACP port channel takes much more time to come up than the normal links, which cause the radius server to time out and has to be brought up manually.

IOS-XE Polaris 16.9.4

Configure a LACP ether-channel between access and core switches.
Enabled dot1x on user ports on access switch and connect clients.
Reboot switch. Switch will start the dot1x process before the Radius server is available via the uplink channel.
This causes the Radius servers to get marked as dead and when the uplink finally gets active, all users already failed authentication.
