Having issues receiving Calling-Station-Id (ani) when using Radius to obtain the call record.

I have two installations of the UC5xx using Radius to obtain call records. One of those deployments is working perfectly fine and I am obtaining the calling number (dialed number). However my other deployment is not. I am getting an error:


904286: *Aug 31 17:19:33.996: RADIUS:  authenticator 76 D4 34 66 21 CE 34 0B - 7D CA 46 A7 32 03 7A 97

045663: Aug 31 16:09:33.760: RADIUS:  Vendor, Cisco       [26]  56



Any ideas? Is there a setting on the UC that I have enabled on one but not the other. I have taken the liberty of attaching both configs.

In the non-working and working scenario are both calls coming in from the FXO port? If so, can you enable the following debugs for the working and failed case-

debug radius

debug voip ccapi inout

debug vpm signal

I have attached the debug logs for both the working and nonworking configs. Just a note: The working config is running IOS 12.4 while the nonworking is running 15.0.

If I downgrade the UC5xx from 15.0 to 12.4 I am back to receiving the Calling-Station-Id.

It appears to be an issue with IOS 15.0. Which needs to be installed with this deployment.

Hi Luke,

Sorry about the delay. Can you be more specific about what fixed the issue?

There has been a change in behavior in IOS 15M/T wrt radius accouting-


The following example shows how to allow the NAS port details to be  included in the Calling Station ID:

Router(config)# radius-server attribute 31 send nas-port-detail

Was wondering if that's what you configured.

yes that is the command that I used to get the calling-station-id.

Thanks for following up.

Thanks for the confirmation. I'll see if we can add this in the default configurations in the SWP.
