Check the RADIUS-LDAPv3.schema file that you used.  That howto doc was
using an old one that used uid, the new one uses cn.  Go down to the
objectclass of radiusprofile and look what it says in MUST.  If it says
cn, then you will need to use cn or change that to uid.


dn: cn=WLAN,ou=profiles,ou=radius,dc=unime,dc=it
objectclass: radiusprofile
cn: WLAN
radiusServiceType: ....

OR change that file.

      NAME 'radiusprofile'
      DESC ''
      MUST cn


      NAME 'radiusprofile'
      DESC ''
      MUST uid

I'd recommend just using cn, so you don't have to remember to modify it
everytime you install freeradius on a machine.
