Thanks for your reply...

I guess that if I was in your place I'd take the same position. How do
you suggest going about letting MS know? I think it's important that
people tell them about their non RFC compliant RADIUS client. Besides
that there is a lot left to be desired about the way their
administrative client for RARAS works as well. In the meantime I'm
hungry for reasonable workarounds and if I had your skill I'd be working
on them right now. Your input is very helpful.

How does one go about removing the primary key? I'm not sure that I
even know where to find it. Does removing it impact the database
acitivty of other NASs attached to the system? We are running 3 NT
RARAS servers and one USR NetServer.
