I'm trying to trigger accounting notifications from an ISG Router to a Radius Server.

Whenever a IP Session is created or deleted accounting notifications should be sent to the radius server. The problem is that the aaa accounting messages are not being sent to the server.

The following configuration is applied:

aaa new-model

aaa accounting network ISG start-stop group radius

aaa session-id common


ip dhcp pool test






subscriber feature accounting send ssg-compatible-vsas

call rsvp-sync

no scripting tcl init

no scripting tcl encdir


class-map type traffic match-any account


policy-map type service ACC

class type traffic account

accounting aaa list ISG


interface GigabitEthernet0/1

ip address

media-type rj45

speed auto

duplex auto

negotiation auto

ip subscriber l2-connected

initiator dhcp


radius-server host auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646 key cisco

radius-server vsa send accounting


The AAA debug output is the following:

2d18h: AAA/ACCT/HC(00000038): Register IEDGE_IP_SIP/C900002A 846Mbit/s, poll every 30.3000s

2d18h: AAA/ACCT/EVENT/(00000038): IPCP_PASS

2d18h: AAA/ACCT/NET(00000038): Method list not found

Does anybody have had any similar experience? why "method list not found" is appearing in the debug message?

I have this problem too.

Looking at currect config, everything seems fine.

What version are you running on?

You may check this bug:

CSCsk94472 iEdge-QoS:Service accounting info is missing in"show subscriber session"

Duplicated by:

CSCsm75945 The accounting method-list is not applied correctly on ISG.

I have just upgraded to 12.2(31)SB16 and still behaving the same way :(

According to the Bugs you mention, the problem should be fixed already in 12.2(31)SB12.

Do you have any further ideas?

You have not defined the method list ISG:

aaa group server radius ISG

server auth-port 1645 acct-port 1646

(assuming you want to use that radius server for accounting)
