Have you tried using the Port Status Monitor to watch the Pager Notification and see if it even attempts to dial out and what it is dialing?

I have watched port status monitor, and no attempt to dial out is made, I also ran dbWalkwer with CoS check for notification devices which came back OK

Hi Mark,

Just a guess here, but maybe you are running into this (seeing that the port is never seized to try the notification);

Only Certain Types of Messages Are Set to Trigger Notification

Cisco Unity can be set so that a subscriber is notified only of certain types of messages. For example, if subscriber notification is set up only for fax and urgent voice messages, e-mail and regular voice messages will not cause Cisco Unity to make a notification call.

To Change the Message Types That Trigger Notification Calls


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the Subscribers > Subscribers > Message Notification page for the subscriber.

Step 2 In the Device list, click the correct notification device.

Step 3 In the Notify Subscriber Of section, verify the selected message types with the subscriber.

From this good 4.0.4 troubleshooting doc;


Hope this helps!

We have a pair running CU7.0(2)_ES21.
We configured a subscriber for Pager Notification.
When a new message was left, we were getting the following error and seeing no activity on the notification ports:

During a failover we noted that the secondary Unity was not having the same problem.

When we did a failback to the primary Unity, we configured the Home Phone Notification and disabled Pager notification.
No problems occur on Home Phone Notification, so that was our fix.

I'm running Unity 4.2 with UCM 7.1.5 and it was just brought to my attention that the pager notification was not working.

(Hasn't been since at least Feb 25 2013)

Looking thorugh the event logs showed multiple CiscoUnity_ AvCs pager notification errors.

Exception occurred and handled.  File: E:\Views\CU4.2.0.110\un_Core1\Notifier\AvPagerDeviceSvr\AvPagerDevice.cpp at Line: 471 - Error: 80004005H Call stack:

0x5EB11FDD AvPagerDeviceSvr.dll:

I went into the services and restarted the AvNotifierMgr service.

Paging is working again.
