I'll give it a try again. I did find your website but came to a spot that I couldn't get past. I'll start again with a clean server and let you k now when I get stuck. Thanks. Nice to know I’m not alone.

That's always a bad sign. If something goes wrong... ask.

Computers aren't magic. If data disappears, it's because something is
making it disappear.

No. Active Directory pretends to be an LDAP server. But it doesn't
supply clear-text passwords when LDAP clients ask for them. So... the
only way for FreeRADIUS to authenticate against AD is via Samba.

See my web site for configuring FreeRADIUS && AD.
