What I met problem to understand is,
1) Is that required to route traffic from a specific
BRAS to exact one server if DB behind radius server is
2) There is two Farm, each has several servers. As
number of paths supported by cisco/Juniper router is
limited ( <= 8 or 16), we could not mix those server
into one farm. is there any way to balance load
between two or more farms automatically?

Do you mean aggregate interfaces of several servers
into one 802.3ad trunk? I think even NASes and radius
live on the same ethernet, OSPF/IS-IS could establish
equal cost paths.
