Did you bind to AD's LDAP server with
ldapsearch [..] -D <identity> -w <password>
with the very same values used in FreeRADIUS configuration or for RADIUS login?

 From one of your former postings it seems that FreeRADIUS is using filter 
(uid=aschappell) to search for your user account.

Is attribute 'uid' actually set in your AD user account? This is rather 
unusal.  By default MS AD stores user name in attribut 'sAMAccountName'.  So 
you'd have to change your FreeRADIUS LDAP configuration to use this attribute 
when generating the search filter.

Well, another log of you shows:

---------------------- snip ----------------------
   [ldap] bind as cn=Adam L. Schappell,ou=Domain

   [ldap] waiting for bind result ...

   [ldap] LDAP login failed: check identity, password settings in ldap
section of radiusd.conf
---------------------- snip ----------------------

It seems in this case the user entry was found but LDAP simple bind failed. 
You should check whether AD account got locked during your failing attempts.

Ciao, Michael.
