Radius auth with LDAP back-end

I have a requirement to provide central authentication for a variety of
Networking and Unix/Linux Server devices. Network devices are to
authenticate using RADIUS, and Servers are to authenticate using LDAP.

Getting the Unix/Linux -> LDAP authentication working is something I'm
reasonably familiar with.
RADIUS is not.

I've come across this page which seems to cover what I want from


However, some of the comments in /etc/raddb/modules/ldap about setting
"Auth-Type = LDAP" concern me.

Can someone with knowledge of this kind of setup please advise on the
best way forward?
