Another option is to use a Huntgroup or similar to conditionally return 
specific attributes e.g.


NXOS	NAS-IP-Address ==
NXOS	NAS-IP-Address ==

IOS	NAS-IP-Address ==


DEFAULT	Huntgroup-Name == NXOS, Ldap-Group == "Network Full Access"
	Cisco-AVPAIR = "shell:roles=admin"

DEFAULT	Huntgroup-Name == IOS, Ldap-Group == "Network Full Access"
	Cisco-AVPAIR = "shell:priv-lvl=15"

The "huntgroups" file is read by the "preprocess" module IIRC so make 
sure that module is loaded. You can of course use something other than 
huntgroups - anything that identifies what type of NAS it is (e.g. an 
SQL lookup, LDAP, etc.)
