I have noticed that IAS only logs "Successful connections" in the system
event log. This gives a quick time/date stamp on who is connecting...

The default setting for IAS logging is "none". In the IAS console you
can set the local logging you can log the "Accounting Requests",
"Authentication Requests" and "Periodic Status" (all are off by
default). The Log is saved in windows/system32/logfiles. The log files
can be in IAS format or Database compatible (what ever that means...)

Maybe turning any/all of these on will shed some light on the issue...
