One of the way to do it would be to use the Microsoft Upsizing=20
Wizard. That's what I did and it worked fine.

Here's the URL

I suggest you make a few dry runs before and test your radius deamon=20
against a succesfully upsized copy to make sure that the authentification=20
works. The size of my operation doesn't justify the purchase of the "real"=
RadiusNT so I keep using the "free 1.16.60" version. This version is very=
"simple" and the transfert was a snap. The newer versions have many more=20
features and I cannot comment about the "sensibility" of the software to=20
such an upgrade. My Y2K tests with the old version worked but I must admit=
that I'm a little bit worried.

Good luck.
