UC500 moh issue

Hi, I have a problem with music on hold on my UC500. I use the default file but I listen only noise. The same file on CME work correctly.

There's a way to debug this problem?

Thanks Enrico

Re: UC500 moh issue

Which exact IOS are you using? Also try reloading the router.

Re: UC500 moh issue

The IOS version is 12.4(11)XW6 but also with 12.4(11)XW5 I have the same problem.

Seems that UC500 cannot reproduce the music, like play the first 1-2 second forever.

I have checked the CPU/Memory/Bandwidth utilization but all are ok.

Re: UC500 moh issue

Is it possible that the file got corrupted? Have you tried another one ?

Yes yes, I try also with the CUE sound file but the "noise-on-hold" are the same.

I've never heard of CME having a problem with MOH. Send relevant config, as it is strange.

Re: UC500 moh issue

ip source-address and multicast moh must have different ip and ports

ip source-address port 2000

multicast moh port 5000

Re: UC500 moh issue

AFter looking at the config I dont see the multicast commands.

Summary of MOH.

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. telephony-service

4. moh filename

5. multicast moh ip-address port port-number [route ip-address-list]

6. exit

7. ephone phone-tag

8. multicast-moh

9. end

From this guide:

Note: This command is required to use MOH for internal calls and it must be configured after MOH is enabled with the moh command.

Re: UC500 moh issue

My MOH issue also is on ISDN call via BRI. I think this is a moh generation problem from au/wav
