CCX7.0(x) HA Recording / Monitoring Problems

Hi. Customer is using CCM 6.1(x) with CCX7.0 Premium Edition and when trying to silent monitor a call or even recording a call is not working. On the CSD it shows "Supervisor is unable to start Monitoring device <ext>"

Agents are using PCs however instead of doing desktop monitoring we are using SPAN because soon they are going to be change to a Citrix Environment. RSPAN is configured correcty on the switches as I can connect the same interface [server monitoring interface] to my laptop with wireshark and I can see phone traffic fine.

The second NIC on each server [for recording and monitoring] is enabled with a bogus IP Address like 1.1.1.x and also post-install was run on each server for selecting the right interface for packet sniffing. Services were restarted but the problem persist.

Is there anything else that I miss? Please advise.




Re: CCX7.0(x) HA Recording / Monitoring Problems

This is because the agent's phone device is not associated with a VoIP Monitor Server and there is no default VoIP Monitor Server selected.

To resolve this issue:

- Select Cisco Desktop Administrator > Locations > your Cisco Customer Response Applications (CRA) Server Logical Call Center (LCC) > Enterprise Data Configuration > VoIP Monitor.

- Ensure that either the agent's phone device is associated with the correct VoIP Monitor or the correct VoIP Monitor Server is selected as the default VoIP Monitor.
