CME as SRST Error: returning empty string !!!!

Hi All:

When I configure CME as SRST I get a constant scrolling error: returning empty string !!!! 

I cannot find one instance of this error anywhere on the internet. Has anyone ever seen the aforementioned error. Please see the SRST configuration and 'show ephone' output below.

Thanks,

Ron

CME as SRST Error: returning empty string !!!!

This issue has been resolved. For some reason, every video example I watched for basic SRST configuration involved deactivating the Callmanager service. I fixed the issue by accident when I was forced to reactivate the Callmanager service because I had to make a call between the Branches and CorpHQ. When I disabled the WAN interfaces

(which of course simulates an actual WAN outage) in lieu of disabling the Callmanager service, the error went away. This also enabled me to make a call from Branch1 running on SRST to Branch2 running on SRST on over the PSTN, however this is on a physical home lab. I believe on the INE lab rack you can only test one branch at a time.
