I thought I was being smart by enabling LDAP authentication, which works, however I don't have enough privileges to do anything on the switch and now for some reason I can't auth locally either. 

Is there an equivalent of SU that I'm missing ?

ex.x450.chi.a.1 > unconfigure switch

This user does not have permissions for this command.

Hi Tom,
When you configured your RADIUS server, did you build a profile to allow Admin access?
Take a look at this thread for some more information.

Also this GTAC Knowledge article may have some useful pointers, namely this:
On the radius server a normal user is needed for User access. If the user needs admin rights on the switch the following needs to be added to the radius user. Service-Type = Administrative-User
