Edit the ldap.attrmap to map the LDAP group attribute to a RADIUS attribute, and add the RADIUS attribute to raddb/dictionary (taking care to note the comments about numbering i.e. pick a number from 3000-3999). Don't re-use an existing attribute - many of the xxGroup attribute have "magic" behaviour hooks.

Thanks, we're using the memberof overlay, and that might be working.

First problem is that I need to rewrite the output from ldap to
something the radius-client finds useful. But there are radius modules
for rewriting things right?

Next problem seems to be that freeradius ignores when ldap is
returning more than one group, am I correct?
