ACS 4.0 AAA TACACS Juniper attribute length reached

We're using Cisco ACS 4.0 to "AAA" our users on both, Cisco routers and switches and Juniper devices. TACACS+'s working fine so far, but is causing some trouble with the configuration for Juniper devices.

To use TACACS+ with Juniper devices we made the following changes:

In "System Configuration" -> "TACACS+ (Cisco IOS)" we add a "New Service" in user and group called "junos-exec". We put the following attributes to "junos-exec" by editing the new service in group settings under "TACACS+ Settings":


allow-commands=(show route protocol direct)|(show in.)|ping|exit|quit|(show arp)|(show ve.)|(show ch.)|(show system up.)


This works fine.

But if we add more commands to "allow-commands" the character-limit seems to be reached.

The TCS-Log (<prog-path>\CiscoSecure ACS v4.0\CSTacacs\Logs) shows:

TCS 18/12/2006 15:42:49 I 0040 0216 arg[0] size=28 =local-user-name=read-network

TCS 18/12/2006 15:42:49 I 0040 0216 arg[1] size=160 =allow-commands=(show route protocol direct)|(show system up.)|(show in.)|ping|exit|quit|(show arp)|(show ve.)|(show ch.)|(show ldp)|(show mpls)|(show route bgp)

TCS 18/12/2006 15:42:49 I 0040 0216 arg[2] size=18 =deny-commands="^."

How can we increase the character-limit from 160 to anything else, e.g. 3000?
