  Despite rumors to the contrary, that's fine.

  Read the guide on my web site:

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.

  I don't think so.  At least, it's not possible for MS-CHAP or PEAP.  For normal User-Password authentication it might work.

  You probably want to upgrade to 3.0.17...
