Hi everybody.

Just run into the strange problem - if SIP trunk uses digest authentification then CUCM 7.1.5 behavesin a strange way.

Incoming call goes like that:

1st invite goes without digest credentials.

After "401 Unauthorized" goes ACK and INVITE with all needed credentials.

But after that again goes "401 Unauthorized" !

INVITE sip:[email protected] SIP/2.0

               SIP/2.0 100 Trying

               SIP/2.0 401 Unauthorized  WWW-Authenticate: Digest realm="BOINC" ...

ACK sip:[email protected] SIP/2.0

INVITE sip:[email protected] SIP/2.0

Authorization:  Digest username="cucm71",realm="BOINC",nonce=......

               SIP/2.0 100 Trying

               SIP/2.0 401 Unauthorized

ACK sip:[email protected] SIP/2.0

I checked in the CUCM trace and found that digest user is not found

08/12/2011 13:02:05.005 CCM|ProcessSIPSecurity - can't find user cucm71 in the user table . Authorization fail.

But "cucm71" user is there.


If no digest authentification is used then, of course, incoming calls are OK.

With CUCM 6.1 I never have such problem.

Any clue?

I did manage it.

It was my negligence - you should manage "Digest Credentials" for this Application User not onle name and password! And your SIP trunk should use name and digest credentials configured.

Yeah I noticed that yesterday from your image.

I think my problem is caused by something else despite following the cisco guide to the tee.

I'll start a new thread rather than continue from yours.

Good to hear you found a solution for your problem.

Go to the trunk and check the sip security profile associated with this trunk.

uncheck the enable Digest Authentication in Device trunk security profile in the cucm.

reset the profile.
