Hi all,

Please pardon my newb-ness. I am new to RADIUS and FreeRADIUS.

How would you guys advise setting up FreeRADIUS to utilize Active Directory on RHEL7?

My goal is to provide centralized authentication for our network switches.

The RHEL7 host system that will be hosting FreeRADIUS is setup to directly authenticate users logging into it against our AD server using sssd. I was thinking that rather than setting up a separate AD relationship between FreeRADIUS and AD, would it be possible to have FreeRADIUS utilize the OS-level relationship that is setup with AD via sssd? I am not finding much online describing this setup.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.6 (Maipo)
FreeRADIUS 3.0.13-9 (the version available in RHEL7 repos)
