I have several 2851 routers set-up with VoIP (using two PVDM2-64 modules for DSP).
The routers are configured in a manner where all the calls are off-netted via ISDN (using a VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1).
The call processing (Call Manager) functions traverse a MPLS T-1 using h323.
Why are there 400 extra voice ports (in addition to my normal isdn-voice ports) showing up on a 'sh voice port summary' output?
Those 400 ports have a 'SIG-TYPE' of "efxs" and look like this:
router1#sh voice port summary
PORT CH SIG-TYPE ADMIN OPER STATUS STATUS EC
============== == ============ ===== ==== ======== ======== ==
50/0/1 1 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/1 2 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/2 1 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/2 2 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/3 1 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/3 2 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/4 1 efxs up up on-hook idle y
50/0/4 2 efxs up up on-hook idle y
Is there any graceful way to have my monitoring platform NOT automatically learn these extra ports?
Any insight appreciated.
These are ephone-dn virtual FXS ports. You will have one for each channel of each ephone-dn configured. For example, a dual-line ephone-dn will have two ports. Not sure about how to configure your monitoring platform to not look at these ports.
Hope this helps.
