I am fairly new to radius. I just need a way to update the users file without having to restart the server and thus lose any current session data, etc.

Ok Please try

killall -HUP radiusd

Depending on the installation it might cause it to only to reread the configfile without loosing session cache.
Let me know the result.

After updating the raidusd "users" file I have been running "service radiusd reload" which seems to add the users without restarting radiusd. Please let me know if I am missing something or if I am correct in my implementation.
