Can you check the IP Address under the Service Parameters for IP Voice Media Streaming Application and confirm that it is a valid IP. To do the same go to CCMAdmin page, Service | Service Parameters | Select CallManager | From service list, select IP Voice Media Streaming Application. Once the page loads, hit on Advanced button and here you should see the TFTP Server info mentioned, it should either be or point to the server which has TFTP Server service running.

If the above is valid, then check the TFTP Server to see if the file exists at C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath\MOH folder.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your reply.

I have verified that IP address is for all TFTP servers.

Also I have copied all files in the MOH directory from the primary TFTP server to the other TFTP servers.

Is there anything else I can check?

Did you reset the MoH Server after that ? If this does not solve the issue, please enable Detailed IP Voice Media Streaming App traces and attach the lastest one to this post

Hi Eugene,

I'm encountering the same problem with a server running CM 4.2(3)sr2b. I have 2 subscribers with active IP voice media streaming service and from one of them I receive lot of "download request failure" error messages. I checked the tftp server IP address and directory and they are ok.

Did you find a solution?
