ACS 5.2 Failed attempts logging

I have upgraded from ACS 4.2 to ACS 5.1 and the reporting is not as I expected. In 4.2 the failed attempts file contained the username, client mac address and nas address for the failed attempt. This makes tracking down incorrectly configured clients relatively easy. In 5.1 the info is missing. if I use the nas to test aaa then I can see the username but when the wireless clients using PEAP/MSCHAP-V2 fail I only see the reason code and none of the previous information.

This is the log from 4.2

09/13/2011,14:09:59,Authen failed,7010329979,Default Group,001a.0000.ccfe,EAP-TLS or PEAP authentication failed due to invalid certificate during SSL handshake,,,172846,,,acs-42-r-02

and this is what I get from 5.1

I suspect they are both failing for the same reason but I get different messages. At this point I trust 4.2 giving the right reason.

Is there somewhere in the configuration that I can turn on the missing fields.

Thanks Steve
