Do you have a command like 'cnf-files location' under your telephony-service config? Sounds like it may be set to somewhere non-writable... or perhaps that location is full?

Yeah I have a command cnf-file location which I set to cnf-file location tftp. But even though I did not set that command the router should use the default location which is system/ins. Bu tin my case it is giving error message without cnf file location command. Any reason why I have to use this command and what is his purpose as it has options flash or tftp?

Sounds like the cnf-files location is misconfigured. Try pointing it at flash:

Then do a create cnf-files

Or just point the CNF files to memory.  You don't need to store them any place specifically.



no cre cnf loc tftp

no cre cnf loc flash

cre cnf

If you still have issues, get the output of:

sh run

sh telephony-service all

sh flash:

dir system:/its/vrf1/
