Dear Lade,

Temp Fail means you have some problems with Callmanager.

Did you upload port licenses and create suffient voice mail ports,hulnt list and hunt pilot.Did you check all vm ports are registered with CM.If you have reduntatnt CMs,create a seperate device pool mention only one CM in it for checking each CM.

For checking, you can try delete these ports,hunt list and hunt pilot.And recreate them.

If you have any problem with Unity first you have to check Application logs in the event viewer.

Could you please post some of them if it saying error?
