[RADIATOR] AuthBy LSA and BaseDN

Unfortunately, my knowledge of the intricacies of AD is limited, so I hope I can properly explain what I want to achieve. 

Basically, our AD permission structure is such that not all OU containers are "trusted" enough to allow wireless authentication. So, I only want to allow authentication based on user entries in a specific OU as opposed to users who are members of a group (not quite the same thing I'm led to believe). 

We (currently) run Radiator on Windows servers and therefore use the LSA module for AD authentication. The manual doesn't have any specific configuration options for this module that appear to be able to limit searches.

Do you want to limit the searches to subtrees like BaseDN does? This 
would likely to be good for performance and easier for authentication 
related AD searches. Part of your message is missing something so I'm 
guessing a little here.
