  Because that attribute doesn't exist.  It has *never* existed.

  In 1.x, this invalid configuration would get silently ignored.  In
2.x, you get an error.  This tells you that the configuration doesn't do
what you think it does.

  The SQL "radgroup" defaults to be for user groups, not huntgroups.

  See the "dialup.conf" file.    The SQL queries for group queries are
editable.  You can change them to select based on huntgroups if you want.
