Hello Gonzalo -

You can certainly use the MySQL session database on the first radius 
server - you simply need to specify the correct DBSource line. Have a 
look at section 23.3 in the Radiator 3.1 reference manual 

Here is the general format for MySQL:


I don't think there will be much use in trying to use a local DBM 
session database as a backup,as it will never be in sync with the SQL 
session database.
