  The debug output is pretty clear.  It does an LDAP search, and the
object isn't found.

  Make sure that (a) the object is in LDAP, and (b) you've configured
FreeRADIUS to do the right LDAP search.

  For backend-specific queries, prefix the LDAP-Group with the backend name:

> ldap ldap2.REALM-2.ca { 
>         basedn = "ou=radius,o=REALM-2.ca,dc=container,dc=ca"

  To query this backend, use "ldap2.REALM-2.ca-LDAP-Group == ..."
