Problem with CISCO WIRELESS CONTROLLER and RADIUS Authentication

We have a Cisco Wireless Controller 5508 with Aironet 1041 APs.
To make the AP authenticate with RADIUS we need to set the following
command manually in the AP:
- radius-server vsa send
Which as explained by cisco does the following:
Router(config)# *radius-server vsa send* [*accounting* | *authentication*]
Enables the network access server to recognize and use VSAs as defined
by RADIUS IETF attribute 26.
The thing is, the APs can only authenticate if this command is issued in
the AP by cli and we need that the Wireless Controller can pass this
configuration to the APs, which it doesn't support. So, anyone know why
is it necessary and if there is another alternative or workaround to
make it work without it?
Nowadays we schedule a script to log in the AP and run the command.
Thanks in advance.
