DNIS Problem

Answered Question

Hi


We are using CME 4.2 on IOS version 12.4(11)XW2. Image file is c2801-ipvoicek9-mz.14-11.XW2.bin


I cant seem to get phones to display the directory entry name. I have service dnis overlay and service dnis dir-lookup in the telephony service. I also have the number listed in the directory entry section.


I have ran a debug isdn q931 and the Calling Party Number is showing the number that I have listed in the directory entry but only the number shows up on the phones.


Any Ideas?

Hi, service dnis dir-lookup is supposed to show a string associated to the called number (DNIS), not the calling number (ANI). This is useful when you have multiple companies but a single set of operators, so they know who has been called and answer appropriately.


If you want something that shows a name for the caller, look at something that I wrote for that:

Thanks for that. I will give the TCL script a go and let you know.

I think thats not right so!


I have the same IOS and have the same problem!


Before upgrade to the new IOS the calling number and the associated dir-entry was displayed on the phone!


I think the problem was beginning after the upgrade.

I will downgrade to the older cme version and test this feature.


i think its a bug!

I forgot to say this:


When I go to "missed calls" the number and the name from the entry is displayed!

In the call-lists the nameresolution is working but not when a call is incoming!


So I have downgraded with IOS c2801-entservicesk9-mz.124-4.XC6 to CME 4.0.3 and the feature name-display works !


It must be a bug in the IOS !

Your right - I have exactly the same problem. The Directory entry is showing in the missed calls but not on an incoming call.


It must be an IOS bug.


I dont really want to downgrade so i might wait for the next version

Just upgraded the IOS to c2801-ipvoicek9-mz.124-11.XW6.bin and it works a treat

Even 12.4(11)XJ4 works for that. It is CME 4.1 so not bad as for features supported.
