Yes, I'm aware of the caveat and "location" is set to none. However the tool/stat does not allow me to isolate the problem. The information I can gather includes:
- MOH server has successfully registered into CallManager and IP address is assigned (They colocate in the same h/w)
- MRG and MRG list are defined. MRG list has been added to the "device pool" in which both softphones enroll (I interpret that only the held party selects the MRG list and holding party determines the audio source ID) Anyway I give everything to them
- IP Streaming Apps service is up and running
- No multicast is enabled
- Both phones can communicate successfully
- However there is a problem on the sound driver in the CallManager/MOH Server that it cannot play the .wav. I assume it is irrelevant as the audio should be reproduced in the softphone. Let me know if my assumption is wrong.
I needs some organized tools that can isolate the problem. I have tried:
- Phone trace in CallManager
- Skinny Station and MOH server trace in IP Streaming Apps
But I cannot see any signalling handshake during on hold. Maybe someone can show me how to use stat / trace to tackle this case.
You need to turn on detailed tracing for both CallManager and IP Voice Media Streamer. Then if you look in the trace directory you will see one folder for CCM traces and another called CMS which contains the IP Voice Media Streamer traces.
Also, just out of curiosity, have you tried to put a hardware phone (e.g. 7960) on hold to make sure it works?
Resolved! It is the conflict of codec. Both softphones are under the region with G729 for intra-regional connection. However the MOH server has default codec of G.711, as verified from the "Service Parameters". Once I change the region codec back to G.711, it works.
However I notice some issues with SDI trace. It does show MTP error when problems happen. However it does not show the name of MRG list being used and any codec related warning. Maybe I should look at other traces and pls let me know.
Also note that you can enable G.711 and G.729 for MOH at the same time. If you go to Service Parameters for IP Voice Media Streamer and click Advanced, you can select which codecs are allowed for MOH, and hold down the Control key to select multiple codecs.
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...
