That is really an Oracle LDAP directory configuration issue. FreeRADIUS
doesn't really care what the backend is. It only cares that you can do
LDAP bind and that LDAP directory provides password hashes. For example
I can query my OpenLDAP database and it will provide me with
atrributes that I can use to authenticate past that. This is not a
RADIUS issue. You have to configure your LDAP directory to provide you
with the right info.
