Problem with + Mysql in Win server 2008r2

Tue May 29 13:39:52 CEST 2012

Have you installed MySQL on the new machine and also is it started?
localhost indicates that freeradius is looking for mysql on the machine
from which it is running.
Or is it running from a different machine? In which case you need to change
the server parameter in sql.conf.
You may need to open the firewall on port 3306 on the machine running mysql
if accessing mysql over the network.
