Why does RADIUS authentication fail when the RADIUS server template and RADIUS server are properly configured

Why is a user not displayed as online on the RADIUS server after the user succeeds in authentication
The RADIUS server judges whether a user is online by the enabling of the accounting function rather than the success of authentication. If the user succeeds in authentication but does not perform accounting, the RADIUS server considers that the user is offline. Therefore, check whether the accounting function is correctly enabled in the scenario where the accounting function is applied.
