Hi everyone.
This is my first post to this list.

I have set up freeradius (V2.1.12) together with openldap (V2.4.31) and so with some success I think.
But I have to say that setting this up using only users-file was a breeze.
Setting up freeradius with ldap not so simple.
I am using cleartext password in ldap. I am not using any special schema for freeradius in my ldap-setup.
My problem is something I noticed many other users has struggled with and that is this part from my debug output:
++[pap] returns noop
Found Auth-Type = EAP
!!!    Replacing User-Password in config items with Cleartext-Password.     !!!
!!! Please update your configuration so that the "known good"               !!!
!!! clear text password is in Cleartext-Password, and not in User-Password. !!!
# Executing group from file /etc/raddb/sites-enabled/default
+- entering group authenticate {...}

So you say what is the problem, the solution is in your debug message?

I have to say it's not.
I can't find where to modify my config so this message does not repeat in my log/debug.

So please what do I have to do to get rid of this problem?
