hangon, are you talking about logging into the switch, or using 802.1X
on the switch ports that clients
are connecting to?

if the former then config is on switch, if the latter then you need to
configure the clients that are connected to it.

and in the latter case, if you dont like the anonymous outer id being
used in accounting info then its up to you to tell the
switch in the 802.1X reply what the real user name is (from the inner,
copy the inner user to the outer reply in the
access accept (which, if its all internal stuff and your own users etc
you may do but this is not appropriate for your users
wanting privacy if you enable remote authentication at other 802.1X
places (eg federated access like eduroam).
