Actually it is bug with ACS 4.1bug CSCsg97429

After upgrading to ACS 4.1, TACACS+ Command Accounting no longer works. No accounting records are visible in the TACACS+ Administration log (bug CSCsg97429).

Command accounting is configured on the Network Access Server (NAS). No records are visible in the TACACS+ Administration log file after entering commands on the NAS. Debugs on the NAS show the records being sent, and they do arrive at the ACS server; but, the appropriate log file is not updated.

The patch information resolves this issue.

These patch files has been moved out from the location. the other option will be upgrading (which is minor) to ACS 4.1.4 with latest patch will fix this Bug.
