Came across an interesting issue where Customer was not able to access Disaster Recovery drop downs.

Scenario#28 – CUCM applying DST changes 1 week before needed (2010)

Today was a hectic day. I walked into my office and immediately started getting calls that phones have gone 1 hour behind. I was a bit surprised as Daylight Saving will be finishing here in UK on 31st October so how come phones gone behind a week earlier. I thought may be customer has gotContinue reading “Scenario#28 – CUCM applying DST changes 1 week before needed (2010)”

Scenario#27 – RightFax Server not working – MGCP

I had an interesting scenario where customer logged a case with us regarding their RightFax server not working. Those of you who don’t know what is a RightFax server can read about it here. When you dial the fax number from outside, it reaches the gateway and you hear one ringback and then a fastContinue reading “Scenario#27 – RightFax Server not working – MGCP”

Scenario#26 – Abbreviated Dial not working Cisco 7912

I was looking into this customer issue where they upgraded from Call manager 4.x to 7.x and almost all users on 7912 phone lost their speed dials. I checked the phones and CCMUSER page and found that the dials where there but they are not able to access it.

Scenario#25 – MoH file download from Call manager

Came across an MoH issue for a customer where the file was missing from Subscriber. As you may be aware that an MoH file should always be uploaded across the cluster on each server to work properly. If you only upload the MoH file on Publisher then it won’t be replicated on other servers. YouContinue reading “Scenario#25 – MoH file download from Call manager”

Scenario#24 – SIP Calls drop after Silence

Came across a complex situation where customer was using this SIP trunk as an alternative to ISDN-30 (if all channels are used or if ISDN goes down). The ISDN-30 link was working fine but they had issues on SIP trunk (how many times I have heard this?) …. their outbound calls over SIP were usingContinue reading “Scenario#24 – SIP Calls drop after Silence”

Scenario#23 – Fax Issues for ATA

Fax machines connected to ATA were not working. The first thing I checked on the gateway…is fax-relay was being used or fax protocol cisco was configured? Fax-relay is NOT supported by ATA. This is what I found at the Voice gateway: voice service voip allow-connections h323 to sip allow-connections sip to h323 allow-connections sip toContinue reading “Scenario#23 – Fax Issues for ATA”

Scenario#22 – ISDN user busy 0x8091

This was an interesting scenario where incoming calls were getting ‘user busy’ message at the gateway and an engage tone was heard at calling party side. *Aug 18 08:36:53.581: ISDN Se0/0/0:15 Q931: RX <-CALL_PROC pd = 8  callref = 0x8D7E Channel ID i = 0xA9839E Exclusive, Channel 30 *Aug 18 08:36:54.997: ISDN Se0/0/0:15 Q931: RXContinue reading “Scenario#22 – ISDN user busy 0x8091”

Scanario#21 – VG224 Fax Issues

Customer reported a fault that several fax machines which were working fine last week have suddenly stopped working. All they were getting for incoming faxes was just the header. No content of the actual fax. Rule of thumb – anything which was working before and not working now means something must have changed. I jumpedContinue reading “Scanario#21 – VG224 Fax Issues”
