FastIron Edge Switch issue regarding 802.1x. Reboot every time when a PC connect to the port

Hi All,

 

I have trouble configuring 802.1x on the FES switches, 2402, 4802 and 9604, with the current firmaware 04.1.01gTc1. The switches rebooted every time I plugged my PC to one of the port to test out the authentication. There is no issue with Fastiron superX 1600. Does anyone know the cause that force the switch to reload?
