Thanls to all that helped.

I forgot to mention I am using SQL 6.5 and it seems I have to wait for SQL to
start before RadiusNT.

DUH! I feel like a DUH!.

Thanks to all the replys so far.

Ok, can anyone give me a brief description on how to set this up?

Thanks to all.

You didn't mention what you are using for a DBMS. If it is SQL
there is a problem that radius can get up and running before SQL.
Radius will check for SQL, assumes it is not working and then
will not check again.

This is a problem with .60, I think Dale was working on a way
to solve the problem in later versions.

Hi gang,

I was wondering if anyone has had the problem of RadiusNT not
authenticating after a system power outage.

System Config:

1. RadiusNT .60 Set up as a service with "interact with desktop" and
Automatic startup.
2. NT4.0 SP2
3. Computone PowerRack
4. Microcom ISPort
5. APC SmartUPS power supply

After losing power the machines shutdown normally. With the power is
restored all machines come back up all OK. Looking in the control panel
"services" it shows RadiusNT has been started. No error messages appear in
the event viewer or other areas. The Radius will not talk to the NAS at
this point. If I manually stop the service (which fails) then start it back
up. It operation is all normal.

Does anyone have any ideas or has run into this problem also??

Thanks to anyone that can help.
