Are you in charge of roaring penguin?

And where did you get the number "6" from? Did you just invent it?
In case it was not clear before:
DO NOT EDIT THE DICTIONARIES.
DO NOT INVENT NUMBERS.
YOU DO NOT CONTROL VENDOR DICTIONARIES.
DO NOT EDIT THEM.
Is that clearer?

You have absolutely no idea how RADIUS works. As a result, you have
NO BUSINESS editing the dictionaries.

How about reading the roaring penguin documentation to see which
attributes it needs?
You are obsessed with editing the dictionaries. DON'T DO THAT.
Instead, read the documentation. It's not hard.
