Not matches, but picks.  findUser() in AuthGeneric will call that 
function in AuthFILE and that will always only match the first user, 
take the check and reply attributes, create a new object and return it;  
if the check attributes don’t match you basically lost.

With text files, use multiple AuthBy FILE clauses with two (or how many 
duplicate user names with different check item you have) different files 
in your handler with a suitable policy, e.g. ContinueUntilAccept.

Something like this:

      AuthByPolicy ContinueUntilAccept

      <AuthBy FILE>
           Filename AMP_Clients

      <AuthBy FILE>
           Filename Aruba_WLAN_CTRL_Clients
