Hi Alan,

I did see that check and didn't understand what it was so elected not to 
get 'distracted' and off-topic and concentrate on getting the basics 

Personally I don't see any reason that I would need to group users 
(which is what I understood of the check).

Though not in front of the system right now I did see some lines in the 
config relating to the radusergroup - though can't remember where now.....

What is it and what does it do, or what is used for??

Doing a quick search, I found this: http://wiki.freeradius.org/Rlm_sql

which claims:

"For example: The following statement checks to see if a user has 
entitlement information in SQL groups, before running the many expensive 
queries of the SQL module."

unfortunately I didn't quite understand the sentence and I believe 
providing what I falsely understand from it would be wrong.

Bottom line though, I don't believe I need to perform the check unless 
it would benefit me in some ways??

Group all IP Phones together, group all MS servers, group Linux server, 
group other devices of similar natures etc....???
