Description (partial)

Issue is customer visible, customer found.

When using type 6 passwords (passwords encrypted with AES) under the RADIUS server group, IOS XE Router (issue has been seen on C1111 but it's not limited to only this platform) stops generating RADIUS packets used for 802.1X authentication.

Router configured to encrypt the password:

  password encryption aes 
  key config-key password-encrypt

  radius server ISE2
   address ipv4 x.x.x.x auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646
   key 6 <encryped_password>

* This issue only exhibits when a dot1x authentication needs to be performed.
** "Test aaa" will work fine.
