The last post by a Cisco employee states that a fix is availble for download - but when i browse to that location it has since been removed...
Am i caught up in somekind of quirk that is preventing the 7960 and IPC (v2.1.4) phones from getting the correct time?
We have one "Date/Time" group set for all our devices, this is set to GMT....when i play with this i DO see the time update on the phones. Clearly, NTP is updating my Unix server time on the Pub and Subs, but NOT getting to my devices :o(
Any tips? I cant keep altering the time in here every 6 months for GMT/BST :o) GMT +1 puts the phones forward 1 hour corectly lol! But i want NTP to do this :o)
The same patch file is used for all versions of CUCM Versions 5.x-7.x
Do not install this patch on subscriber server. It is for publisher only.
A new patch has been released. The original patch documentation advised to only install on publisher. However, some users attempted patch subscribers and an extermely few of those experienced catastrophic failure. That failure is captured in CSCsy33380.
The original patch and corresponding md5hash were:
Please follow the steps listed in the Field Notice to follow up if you have questions.
The workaround is only a patch to correct time issues for the week of
March 8 - March 15, 2009 for US
March 15 - March 22, 2009 for Argentina
Any timezone which changes on Friday or Saturday is actually addressed by CSCsy33379.
After that time will be correct until DST ends in November. Additional permanent fixes will be released later this year to correct DST fallback in November and to remove changes for this specific patch so that DST will begin and end correctly correctly in 2010.
Re: NTP settings on CUCM6.1 not taken by IP phones
Cheers Rob !
I have popped into work this morning fuming about the DST/BST issue with our 1000+ 7960 phones....only to find that they HAVE now all updated :o)
Looks like the 7970's updated straight away, the 7960's took several hours...
Our NTP source is constant (doesn't adjust for DST/BST). Can I automate BST changes in CUCM in anyway? I have had to manually update the time in CUCM to GMT +1 (BST) to get the extra hour. In 6 months i will have to do the reverse lol
I think the old 3.3 servers linked to a "net time" statement from the windows Publisher server to a windows server clock source (not NTP, but it was linked to NTP and automatically updated itself for BST)
Is this possible in CUCM 6.1? The NTP settings state it *must* be a stratum source, hence i pointed at our NTP server NOT a windows-based AD server etc.
Hope this makes sense :o) Basically - can i popint the NTP reference at a Windows AD server NOT a stratum source? Would that automate BST changes for me on the IP phones?
I'm not able to access my old voice mail messages all of a sudden. The recording says something like 'the message is currently not available'. This has never happened before in all the years I have been using this system. I have t...
If you have 2 ISR routers, one acting as Failover, do we need to have both the same number of SRST licenses on the 2 routers?
No. You will only need the SRST licenses on the primary router. Because this feature...
