  The server comes with an "ippool" module.  It's in raddb/mods-available/ippool.  It has lots of examples.

  If it has one name, it's just 'ippool".  See the many, many, other examples of modules being used.

> In the end I gave up this way but succeeded in ip pooling at last by switching to sqlippool where the name of the ippool module is simply "sqlippool" and the pools are handled by radippool. After changing the update clauses from " expiry_time IS NULL" to " expiry_time = NULL" in ippool.conf mysql (with innodb on radippool) does not print errors anymore. 

  You're probably using an old version of the server.

  That's good.
