We currently do not have an option for exporting the NT SAM to a radius
database. However, we do have an option to authenticate once via
the NT sam, and then capture the password and save the clear test
in the ODBC database, so that you can slowly move away from the NT SAM.

RadiusNT 2.2 (when available) should ahandle the concurrency control
fine. You can look to Emerald if you don't want to do the database
work yourself.
