I know that NAS's can be configured to use a primary and secondary RADIUS
server. In case the primary server doesn't respond, then the secondary
server will be queried.

However, isn't it true that both the primary and secondary server share only
one user database ? This is a single-point-of-failure, isn't it ?

What measures could I take to make sure that in the event the first user
database conks-out, a secondary database might be used ?
