Yes, you can. MAC auth is then done 1st, and depending on MAC auth result, fail or pass, your choice, 802.1x will be done

Thanks..Do I need to turn on 802.1x bypass for that? and where will be the MAC database stored…

By rybear

The MAC database is stored in the configuration tab > MAC Group if you are using the OV2500 to process this. If you turn on 802.1x bypass then it won’t do this check if it fails the MAC authentication.
Completely depends on what you want to achieve.
