Yes, so have it tell the outer server... Insert the (attached) snippet
into the authorize section of the inner server.

There's an issue where outer.reply items aren't merged with the reply
when doing EAP-TTLS-MSCHAPv2. So you still have to have
'use_tunneled_reply' set to yes.

I believe the User-Name attribute in outer.reply is cached, and
available for use on session resumption. So just:

Auth-Type EAP {
    if(ok && "%{reply:User-Name}"){
        update request {
            User-Name := "%{reply:User-Name}"

Once you've got the policies moved to post-auth, then any scripts or
lookups used for authorisation will only be run once, so far greater
efficiency with complex policies. Rejects are still handled properly
even within the Post-Auth section (jumps to Post-Auth-Type reject).
