Description (partial)

If "aaa authentication dot1x.." command is configured with local tag for fallback mistakenly, authorization to critical vlan is not happening when AAA server is not reachable. When local fallback is configured switch is trying for local fallback and critical vlan authorization is getting failed:

May  5 19:01:40.313 MST: RADIUS/DECODE: No response from radius-server; parse response; FAIL
May  5 19:01:40.313 MST: RADIUS/DECODE: Case error(no response/ bad packet/ op decode);parse response; FAIL
May  5 19:01:40.313 MST: EAP-EVENT: Received context create from LL (AAA_LOCAL_EAP) (0x00000064)
May  5 19:01:40.313 MST: EAP-AUTH-EVENT: Setting authentication mode: Local

May  5 19:01:40.317 MST: %DOT1X-5-FAIL: Authentication failed for client

fallback is required to configure only for TACACS and local login authentication and not for dot1x.
