Looking at the configuration I find many things related radutmp and radwtmp to disable it. 

In the accounting section:

#  Update the wtmp file


        #  If you don't use "radlast", you can delete this line.


#  For Simultaneous-Use tracking.


        #  Due to packet losses in the network, the data here

        #  may be incorrect.  There is little we can do about it.


#  Session database, used for checking Simultaneous-Use. Either the radutmp 

#  or rlm_sql module can handle this.

#  The rlm_sql module is *much* faster

session {



        #  See "Simultaneous Use Checking Querie" in sql.conf



this is where you need to "unix" comment and "radutmp"? 

Sorry but I'm newbie in freeradius ..

Thank You
