With Emerald 2.5, you can go to your Control panel and change the
display of dates to include a four digit year rather than a two digit
year. All dates are stored Y2K compliant by SQL Server from Emerald.
Two digit years follow the date computations that is defined by Windows.

Since the dates are stored correctly, there is no issue with RadiusNT.
