Had this problem randomly and not too sure why it happens but the work around was to make a change in the phones profile... (add a letter to the description or somethinig) save it, reset it and then change it back, save it and reset the phone again and the phone would be rid of the dreaded "host not found"

How are the groups defined?

Ensure the Publisher is there in the group which is not working (assuming you are on the same cluster with different groups).

The reason being you can mention only one URL in the enterprise parameter per cluster.

Are the phones remote?

Connected to a particular switch?

Any FW, TCP inspects between IP Phones and CUCM?

Which Phone model and firwmare?

Using IP address instead of hostname for URL?

Try this, from IP Phone Service Configuration click on "Update Subscription". Well at least, it solved my problem with Host Not Found.

Hi Sajish,

Take a look at the Directory URL in the CCM config and make sure that it is set as the CCM publisher IP address not CCM Publisher Name (DNS issue).

Directory URL can be found @

Enterprise Parameters Configuration>Phone URL Parameters>URL Directories >http://x.x.x.x/CCMCIP/xmldirectory.asp

Hope this helps!

this URL is correct one only, i am suspecting we have to do something with Sql database, I think publisher and subscriber is not replicating SQL database...
