accounting question

I have redundant NAS nodes and they obviously have two different NAS-IP. If
one NAS fails, the entity for which I'm accounting traffic is automatically
switched over to the redundant NAS which  can keep sending accounting
records to Radius. However, the records  will have different NAS-IP,
NAS-Identier and NAS-Port-ID.

The acct-session-id and framed-ip-addrss will be the same (and this is what
I use to identify the entity for which I collect acct info). Is there any
way that this new records will be written to the same file as before the
failover so that I can correlate the records?

I see that the acct directory is in /var/log/freeradius/radacct/<NAS-IP>/.
This <NAS-IP> directory name is what is bothering me. Is there any way to
change this?
