Freeradius 2 (1.7.3_2) doesn't start
This issue is know by long time (as described here: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=87441.msg583123#msg583123)
Identical situation on new rel. 1.7.3_2
Anyway, edit /usr/local/etc/rc.d/radiusd.sh (see the link above) do the trick also in this case.
Log case A: original radiusd.sh file, service finally hangs:
Oct 12 18:48:10 radiusd 44325 Ready to process requests. Oct 12 18:48:10 radiusd 43263 Loaded virtual server <default>Oct 12 18:48:10 radiusd 38008 Exiting normally. Oct 12 18:48:10 radiusd 38008 Signalled to terminate Oct 12 18:48:09 radiusd 38008 Ready to process requests. Oct 12 18:48:09 radiusd 37815 Loaded virtual server <default></default></default>
Log case B: modded radiusd.sh file, service is running (and it's been started only one time)!
Oct 12 23:06:54 radiusd 50410 Ready to process requests. Oct 12 23:06:54 radiusd 47665 Loaded virtual server <default></default>
All madness hopefully fixed here:
https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-ports/pull/267 (merged in 1.7.5)
https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-ports/pull/268 (merged in 1.7.5_1)
Smoot and clean :)
