[RADIATOR] Custom Reply-Message for each AuthSQL inside REALM

Hello Heikki,
the solution you proposed is working fine, thanks. I had also to adjust the
AuthByPolicy parameter that must be different in the various AuthBy Groups.
Just in case it could be useful to somebody else, I am reporting here a
skeleton of my Radiator configuration file.

<Realm REALM>
    AuthByPolicy ContinueWhileAccept

    #Check that there are ports available
    <AuthBy GROUP>
        Identifier Auth1
        AuthByPolicy ContinueWhileReject
        <AuthBy SQL>

        #Because of the AuthByPolicy for this group, this AuthByInternal
will be executed only
        #if the previous AuthBySQL returns Rejects. Here I write error
        <AuthBy INTERNAL>
            AuthHook sub { } #Print errors messages because of the lack of
    </AuthBy> #End of the Auth1 AuthBy Group

    #Now check that the user is not blacklisted
    <AuthBy GROUP>
        Identifier Auth2
        AuthByPolicy ContinueWhileReject
        #Check that there are ports available
        <AuthBy SQL>

        <AuthBy INTERNAL>
            AuthHook sub { } #Print errors messages because the user is
    </AuthBy> #End of the Auth2 AuthBy Group

    #Then authenticate the user in the usual manner
    <AuthBy SQL>

Thanks again,
