Thanks Ivan, that was helpful. I deleted the record, but when that
also did not solved the problem. Even putting the plain text password
in the mysql table did not help. So I looked at the authorise and
authenticate sections again and realised that mschap lines were
missing. Adding that fixed the issue. I have tested, at my end and no
other change was required (even the encrypted password in mysql

If any of you can recommend a good in-depth book on freeradius then it
would be great.
