CME 3.3 - 7970G Phones Paging Problems

Answered Question

Running CME 3.3. Paging system on all phones working correctly when using 7040 phones. Replacing 7040 phones with 7970G phones.

When I installed 7970G phones I started having this problem.

When someone "Pages" I noticed on the 7970G phones the page comes through on the phone but the "Speaker" button never comes on and you don't hear the page unless you manually "hit" the button. How do I get the speaker to "Automatically" come on when someone pages.

This happens because the tftp server gets confused by "flash:" prepended to filename, so please use the alias command in tftp-server, eg:

tftp-server flash:/apps70.1-1-3-31.sbn alias apps70.1-1-3-31.sbn


This way you can store the phoneloads in a separate directory if your router supports that (28xx, 38xx)


repeat for all .sbn files with the exact filenames, and the SCCP70.8-0-4SR3A.loads


As load please configure SCCP70.8-0-4SR3A without the .loads extension.


In fact you can even not use the .default. files at all because you are forcing the upgrade by exact filename.

Firmware on the 7970? Check that you have the lastest 8.0(4)SR3A and try again.

Copy all the files to the router, that should be tftp server. Configure all the files with "tftp-server ....". Configure the load like SCCP70.8-0-4SR3A under "telephony-service", without the extension.

To monitor the upgrade, do "term mon" and "debug tftp-events"

Yes for tidiness remove unused files and configuration commands.

Does the 7970 pages correctly now ?
