|Message:||Network Policy Server discarded the request for a user.
Contact the Network Policy Server administrator for more information.

Reconfigure, upgrade, or replace the RADIUS client
This condition occurs when NPS discards accounting requests because the structure of the accounting request message that was sent by a RADIUS client does not comply with the RADIUS protocol.
To reconfigure, upgrade, or replace the RADIUS client:
- Contact your RADIUS client vendor for configuration assistance or firmware updates. Many RADIUS client vendors provide updated firmware that allows the RADIUS client to send Accounting-Request messages that comply with the RADIUS protocol.
- If your RADIUS client vendor cannot provide reconfiguration instructions or firmware that allows the RADIUS client to send RADIUS protocol-compliant messages, you must obtain and install a RADIUS protocol-compliant RADIUS client for use with NPS.
To verify that accounting request messages are being processed by NPS:
- On the server running NPS, use a network traffic diagnostic application to capture UDP network traffic.
- Attempt to connect to the network through the RADIUS client with an access client.
- Examine the capture to verify that NPS received and processed an accounting request message from the network access server.
