Testing mschapv2 with custom radius attributes

I guess I'm guilty of asking an X-Y question.  So let's try again.  In
following this guide:
https://wiki.freeradius.org/guide/Active-Directory-direct-via-winbind I
configured a freeradius server to authenticate against active directory.
However, I made a tweak to make authentication dependent on a custom VSA
"Aruba-Essid-Name".  With that tweak the guide's advice for testing using
radtest to confirm the configuration doesn't work since radtest doesn't
seem to support manually setting the above VSA.  Elsewhere on the wiki I
see references to radclient, radeapclient, eapol_test and rad_eap_test.  I
have been unable to wrangle any of these tools correctly to test that my
freeradius configuration is behaving as I want it to.  Any help would be
appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
