Today, I am preparing to upgrade Emerald to 2.5. Before the upgrade, I plan
to install RadiusNT onto another server and run radusers on my Emerald
database so I can continue to let my customers login while I am upgrading

Of course, I have to let all of my NASes know of the new IP address for
authentication. I also realize that the accounting features of Emerald and
RadiusNT will not function while I am running RadiusNT in text mode on the
second server. I also realize that new customers cannot be entered while the
upgrade is taking place.

I am hoping the upgrade won't take more than a few hours.

Are there any ramifications of this procedure? What about RadiusNT
licensing? Anything else I should know? Is there a better way?
