  Brocade should just use standard RADIUS attributes.  If it doesn't, it's very broken.

  What does that mean?

  Hint: there is something called DEBUG MODE.

  It also helps to explain what you did:

  "I did stuff and it didn't work" is a bad question.

  Local users aren't defined in clients.conf.

  You should be able to configure AD as an authentication source for FreeRADIUS.  The server has pretty good documentation for how to do this.  See mods-available/ldap, especially in 3.0.20+

  You can also map AD attributes to RADIUS attributes.  Again, this is documented with examples in mods-available/ldap.
