  That is entirely the wrong solution.  Just configure the CA on the client.

  Disabling CA validation means that the client will connect to *any* RADIUS server, and hand over the passwords.  This is insecure, and very wrong.

  The default configuration works fine.  So what did you change?  I don't know, because you're very careful to not give any useful information.

  Does it to LDAP?  AD?  ntlm_auth?  I have no idea.  You do, but you're not saying.

  This is like taking your car to the mechanic, and saying "It doesn't work right".  When the mechanic asks "what's wrong?"  You say "I dunno, you're the mechanic, you fix it."

  This approach is unhelpful.

  My guess (and it's only a guess), is that it's a permissions issue.  I'll follow your style here, and give no more useful information than that.  If you think about it carefully and read the configuration, that should be enough to fix the issue.
