Radius authentication fails on mac devices

Hi Pros, I'm facing with a strange issue with iPhones and Macs. We use Radius/WPA2 Enterprise Auth. for our SSID. If I connect the first time, the device get authenticated, but if I change the SSID and want connect back, it fails with wrong password. On the radius server (Win), the Eventlog says ok (see Attachement) and debug looks ok too.

Are your devices spoofing MAC addresses?  That is a common feature now.  Maybe it is using that as an identifier and the randomization causes it to be misidentified.  Just a guess.
