  Nonsense.  The file contains comments which describe what it does.
The doc/rlm_ldap file contains additional documentation.

  You're trying random things because you don't understand how it works.

  Even worse, you don't understand how RADIUS and LDAP works.  Asking if
FreeRADIUS reads the LDAP schema is *very* wrong.  FreeRADIUS isn't an
LDAP server.

  The schema.  Define an LDAP attribute which contains the information
for the VSA.  Map that attribute to RADIUS in ldap.attrmap.  It should
take all of 15 minutes.
