Sorry about that. I admit I was pretty vague when looking back.
We are using Samba for Active Directory.

I solved the problem described in the previous emails by:

 1. Not using a version of Samba greater than 4.4.16 as Active Directory
    on Centos 7
 2. Not using a version of Samba greater than 4.7.10 combined with
    Freeradius 3.0.17 on Centos 7
 3. Using this guide again as done in our current working Active

It's now working as expected.

Thanks for the responses and have a nice weekend!
