Version 1.x and 2.x are *not* configuration compatible. This fact is 
documented. The recommended procedure when upgrading to 2.x from 1.x is 
to start with the vanilla unmodified configuration. Read all the 
documentation in the config area (e.g. /etc/raddb) and *incrementally* 
modify your configuration to tailor it to your needs based on the 2.x 
configuration methodology. It will be immensely helpful to you if you 
place your 2.x configuration files under source code control (starting 
the the *unmodified* versions), then start "tweaking" saving your state 
in your source code repository with each successful test and 
modification. Then when things break you can roll back your 
configuration to a known state and not play the guessing game of "what 
did I change that broke it?"
