I am a little bit new to freeradius.

I have 2 freeradius 2.1.12 servers on Ubuntu 14.04.5 servers and two old freeradius 2.1.10 servers on Ubuntu 12.04.5

On the old server we have the default site and eduroam configured.
On the new servers we have a switches which is similar to default but allows authentication to our Network switches.
Extra configuration is set in the authorize section for switches but this does not work on the new servers.

How does freeradius know which site file to use for authentication? Does it try each file in turn and in what order?

I know that each line is read and executed in turn but is there some policy or conditions that need setting to tell freeradius
Out to authorize users? Is there any document links I can read?
