Can i add local administrator account to radius setup

Hey guys, i have my radius setup to give access to anyone on the domain. Is there any way to authenticate the local administrator account to computers? They all have the same password

RADIUS needs to be able to verify the authentication credentials, therefore if you're trying to validate credentials on a machine which hasn't yet authenticated to check its own credentials, the answer is no.

Ok, so you come to the machine and try to log in as local admin.  The key word here is 'local'.  The 'local' machine authenticates that user, and nothing else.  It is an account specific to that machine only.

This wouldn't be possible by RADIUS anyway, as the machine would have to already be authenticated on the network in order to talk to the RADIUS to pass the credentials.

So no, it just won't work and isn't something that ever will.
