I just realized that Emerald Admin 2.1.0, if any changes are made to
existing Radius Defaults (and maybe adding new ones?) apparently after
running rad25_up.sql, Emerald Admin will choke when trying to update the
RadAtConfigs table. I had this happen to me tonight simply because I
wanted to change the "Ascend-Maximum-Time" value from 42300 to 28800.
Unfortunately, it not only failed to make the change, but also wiped out
all rows in the table that had anything to do with "PPP". So at this
point, no one with that AccountType could log in ("No Attributes").
Emerald Admin could not re-enter the RadAtConfig values.

After sifting through the data for other accounttypes that we use, I
managed to recreate the entries for "PPP" manually; people were then able
to dial up again.

Is there an Emerald Administrator that works correctly after running
"rad25_up.sql" (for use with RadiusNT 2.5.124)?

Emerald 2.1.11, RadiusNT 2.5.124, MSSQL Server 6.5 SP3, NT4 (intel) SP3
