FreeRADIUS on maintenance mode? Open authentication.

Here is what we do for WiMax when we don't know the username/passwords.  

In the auth section add something like this:

update control {
        Auth-Type := Accept
update outer.reply {

        Framed-Filter-Id := Test

The Framed-Filter-Id would be replaced with whatever VSAs you need to send.

Subject: FreeRADIUS on maintenance mode? Open authentication.

Hi everybody:

I would like to know if there are some option to adjust in FreeRADIUS configuration to allow open authentication from all users.

I have to make some maintenance tasks on MySQL and I don't want to interrupt the service. My objective is prevent alter all hotspot configurations (NASes) disabling RADIUS server.

I hope your advices.
