I am working on integrating eDirectory with FreeRADIUS on our OES 11 SP2 servers. I have been following all the steps in the "Integrating Novell eDirectory with FreeRADIUS" guide located here: https://www.netiq.com/documentation/edir_radius/. I did not have any problems installing FreeRADIUS or modifying its config files for LDAP authentication.

I am now stuck trying to extend the eDirectory schema for radius. In iManager, I go to Roles and Tasks --> radius --> Extend Schema, and I keep getting the following error: "RADIUS plugin encountered an error. Click the Details button for more information." When I click "details" it shows the following:

Can anyone give me an idea of what is going on here? Everything I've been able to dig up so far has dealt with schema conflict errors and ssl/tls connection issues. I don't think that is what's going on here. I am getting the same error on multiple servers with eDirectory and iManager installed. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
