No, they are encrypted in the ldap database in md5 hash.
I might be too old to do bleeding edge stuff like 3.0 RC1
I will take a look and a poke at it though.

You have plaintext passwords then?

Use FreeRADIUS 3.0.0-rc1, the LDAP module is SIGNIFICANTLY better.

For redundancy/resilience you can either just point the module at a round-robin FQDN, or set a comma delimited list of servers in the 'server' config item, libldap handles the failover.
