3825 PRIs to different telco equip clocking issue (slip secs)

We have a 3825ISR with (2) 2-port WICs (V2).  Because of internal company/subsidiaries, WIC0 has 2 full PRIs outbound to our carrier's 3945 (dial-peer 9.T), and WIC1 has 1 full PRI outbound to separate carrier 2921 (dial-peer 8.T, with second WIC1 port shut).  The carrier's equipment is located in our datacenter.

My problem is that I am seeing lots of slip secs on WIC1's PRI.  After researching, I am sure the clocking problems are because there are two separate telco routers connected via PRI to our 3825.  Is there any way to tell my 3825 to separate the two?  Or must I request the carrier gets their clocking from us on the problem PRI?

All the T1 ports are set to clock source line and linecode and framing are not an issue.  I have seen a clock-source command 'independent', but am not sure how to apply it, or if it is even supported in Gen2 hardware like the 3825.  I have swapped out the cable with known good replacements, with no improvement.  Relevant config and sh controller output below:

It looks like independent

It looks like independent doesn't work with voice:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios/12_2/12_2z/12_2zj/feature/guide/gthwecan.html

"Note When independent clocking is configured, the controller will support only one channel group and no voice applications"

 

It looks like you're pretty limited here unless you can get one carrier to accept you as the clocking source which I doubt they will be okay with.  You could try changing the priorities around to have another PRI act as the network clock source and see if that helps at all.

Brian, thanks for the reply

Brian, thanks for the reply.

Is it possible to have one WIC/2 PRIs using clock-source line and the other WIC/PRI using clock source internal?  If I am able to convince the carrier to accept us as clock source, that is.  I just want to see if it is even possible with our hardware before fighting that battle...

It should be possible under

It should be possible under the controller configuration.

Brian, thanks for your

Brian, thanks for your replies.  I just have one more question...

 

Before setting my clock source to internal on the 0/1/0 interface, should I run the command no network-clock-select 3 T1 0/1/0 first?  All assuming I can get the telco to comply, of course.

 

Example:

no network-clock-select 3 T1 0/1/0

controller t1 0/1/0

clock source internal

 

I'm just not sure how network-clock-select relates to being a clock source, as opposed to the usual clock source line.

That's fine buy may not be

That's fine buy may not be necessary since 0/0/0 is currently the network clock source since it has a priority of 1.
