Meetme Conference

Hi NetPro,

I am setting up Meetme Conference on CME 4.1. I am following the doc and come under (config-dspfarm-profile)#mode. When I issue the command 'max session ?', the only option is '0-0', which means I can not 'no shut' this profile. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Meetme Conference

conferencing claims the whole DSP for the purpose, a pdvdm-16 only has one DSP and 2 channels are already being used, that is not the WHOLE DSP for conferencing so you cannot configure that. that's why you get the max sessions 0-0, you can configure MTP or XCODING with the rest of the channels but for conferencing you need to add at least another pvdm-16 or change the one you have for a pvdm-32

Re: Meetme Conference

Do you have enough dsp resources in this router ?

Re: Meetme Conference

I have a 16 channel PVDM. Only 5 phones controlled by this cme. PSTN connection is via SIP trunk to another router. I am not sure if this resource can be shared by conference.

thanks.

Re: Meetme Conference

It is due to the fact that there are no DSP resources available for the dspfarm or the dspfarm is not enabled. You can try and issues the following under your voice-card 0 (could be any number):

voice-card 0

dsp services dspfarm

dspfarm

If this does not help can you post a "show diag" of the gateway?

Re: Meetme Conference

Also, you do not have to have conferencing resources on a gateway in order to have meet me conferencing. The CallManagers themselves have some resources for conferencing but if you are scaling above the recommended resources for your server type then you will need external DSP resources.

Thanks for the quick reponse.

Attached is the 'show diag'

Re: Meetme Conference

You have a 16 channel pvdm in the router and are only using 2 of those channels with the 2 port FXS module. Did you issue the commands I posted earlier?

Re: Meetme Conference

Hi,

I tried with my other 3 CME routers, I got the same situation: dspfarm profile cannot be enabled because I cannot 'no shut' the profile. The error message is "Please configure the maximum sessions for this profile and retry". When I tried 'max session' command, '0-0' is the only option. Here is my configuration up to the problem point:

================

voice-card 0

Are there any features that I need to turn on to configure Meetme?

Thanks.
