Invalid User in RADIUS Logs

Is there a way that I can set log level in RADIUS to make it log like when in debug mode? Coz I cannot trace exactly what causes the 'Invalid user' log in RADIUS. I have already confirmed that for this case it is not the password. So now, I'm left to look into other causes.

thanks a lot!

But the users are actually valid and was able to authenticate successfully later on. Just want to get possible reasons on what could be causing RADIUS to log that. I'm also suspecting perhaps it was not able to lookup/connect to MySQL db at that time. Would that be possible cause also?
