I am running ipcc express version 7.

in my script I read from an external database. If this database is off line and the subsystem goes out of service it takes the script over 45 seconds to answer the call. Is there anyway I can reduce this?

Try setting the timeout value within the DB Read step to a smaller value.

I, also, have IVR 7.0 and I have the same problem. When one of DB configured in Database Subsystem is down then my IVR is answering with delay and, sometimes I received "... end system problem" message.

How you solved this problem?

I mention that may DB read timeout is 7 seconds.

Hi Dan,

There's a known defect that when one db connection goes does, the whole db subsystem goes to partial service and starts affecting call, either delay answering or busy. It could be this bug:

CSCsw22313    Bad Database connection causes calls to fail.

Hope that helps!

Hi Pablo,

thanks for your information, but I have a problem. I use this IVR in a Contact Center Enterprise solution. The IVR is connected to two databases for redundancy. I can't remove Database subsystem configuration because this architecture.

In this bug it is saying that it is fixed in 7.0(2.12), 7.0(1.2.43), and 7.0(1.2.47) versions.

On my IVR I put the last SR (7.0(1)SR05_Build504) and this problem is not solved. Can you tell me where I can get one of these versions?

Thank you,

Hi Pablo,

I installed ES08 patch and after that the delay decrease to 5 ring tones, but after some retries the message "... end system problem ..." reappear witch cause the rejection of our tests by the client.

It is any way, other than open a TAC case, to solve this problem? I want to eliminate all possibilities and tests before contacting TAC.
