Issues with Call Forward All

Hi ,

I am facing one issue with CFA, I have one IP phone with DN 20XX and i have forwarded all calls to a mobile number (99XXXXXXXX), the issue is when i dial the DN 20XX internally i.e. from some other IP phone the calls gets forwarded to the mobile number, but when i dial the DID of my DN 20XX, instead of ringing on mobile, Phone with DN 20XX rings and CFA doesnt work.

Can any one please suggest what is the issue here?

Regards

Issues with Call Forward All

Most likely the Telco is blocking the call because the calling ID is not a valid number assigned by your Telco. You can post here a debug isdn q931 to confirm this.

To fix it, you would have to implement translation rules on your VG to override the calling number to match a DID assigned by your Telco. Search in the form and you will find examples of how to implement this.

Re: Issues with Call Forward All

How is the DID configured to match up with extension 20XX?  Is there a translation on the VGW? Or on call manager? Or is the phone set configured with 2 lines? one with the full DID and another with the internal extension? Have you done a DNA trace of the DID?

usually a telco wouldn't block the call like amine said, in my experience they just change the caller ID to the default number. If a telco was blocking the call you would probably be getting a busy tone. I think you're going to need a DNA trace of calling the DID.

Hi Brad,

On the gateway we are getting 6712XXX as a calling party number and we  capturing the last 4 digits for extension so we made extensions with  20XX. No translation rules are configured in CUCM. and the PSTN gateway is MGCP.

Thanks

Can you verify, on the gateway that deals with the forwarded call, what the setting is on OUTBOUND CALL>CALLING PARTY SELECTION. Is it set to Orginator?  If so change to First or Last redirected number.

If Still no joy, kindly attach the cucm traces of a test call

Issues with Call Forward All

I have to agree with Brad here in that if your Telco were blocking the call, then you'd get a busy signal and your issue would be a bit more clear.  In fact, you are describing a difference in behavior when calling a device from a different originating device.  I have actually seen this behavior before but it was a low-level DB replication issue.  That may or may not be the case here but its where I'd probably start.  So, can you give the following:

How many nodes are in the CUCM cluster?

What protocol are you using for the PSTN gateway?  MGCP or H323?

Take a look at the CUCM server registrations - i.e., what Subscriber is the target phone registered to vs. the originating device?  Ex:  Phone 1 and Phone 2 registered to same node - behaves as expected vs. Phone 1 registered to Sub 1 and Phone 2 (or Gateway) registered to Sub 2 - different behavior?

Re: Issues with Call Forward All

Hi David,

Thanks for your reply. We have 3 nodes in our cluster (1 Pub & 2 Sub). And we are using MGCP on our PSTN gateway.

On the gateway we are getting 6712XXX as a calling party number and we capturing the last 4 digits for extension so we made extension with 20XX. No translation rules are configured in CUCM.

Forwarding is not working when we calling on a DID number, but when we dial 4 digit extension number it works. Any changes needs to be done on CUCM?

Thanks

Saurabh

Re: Issues with Call Forward All

Well, we don't have enough information to determine what, if anything, you need to do.  First things to look at would be:

DB replication status - either from CLI, RTMT, and/or Unified Reporting

Where are the endpoints registered - what CUCM server is the 20XX phone registered to vs. the MGCP gateway?
