No. RadiusNT 2.2 will have failover upon ODBC failover in case of ODBC
failure, though. This typically will be either an MS Access database,
users file.

RadiusNT 1.19.00 has the ability to reverse them out on the fly. You
add the
users to ODBC and put "WINNT" as their password and enable the option.
RadiusNT authenticates a user successfully (with PAP) it will then save
unencrypted password into the database, replacing the "WINNT".
