Does 8710 support DNS SRV for sip/h323 regisration failover?
Does the 8710 support DNS SRV for sip/h323 registration to handle SIP/H323 registraion failover on the VCS?
We recently added a second VCS peer for redundancy. We are planning to use two sip proxy on the video endpoints (TC6.3). The 8510 supports DNS SRV according to the documentation. However, most of our core work involves using scheduling with TMS and "one button to push" which relies on the 8710 cluster as the primary conferencing resource. I am not able to find any documentation that state sthe 8710 supports DNS SRV or any registration redundancy whatsoever. I have a case with cisco TAC open to confirm support. Cisco TAC says the 8710 does support DNS SRV but they are trying to find out why there is no documentation on it. And to provide documentation if it does exists.
Have anyone in the community used DNS SRV for the 8710? Or are there any other methods for registration redundancy?
The situation we are tryign to solve for is if the primary VCS fails in the middle of the day (and it happened recently) and we have conferences already scheduled, I would like the 8710 to re-regiser to the secondary VCS like the endpoints do so it will register those new conferences onto that secondary VCS.

Thanks for checking! Can you check if the primary VCS fail, does the 8710 auto-matically re-register to the VCS with the higher priority?
Ideally, if the primary VCS has a hard-down in the middle of the day, the 8710 will re-register to the new VCS. This way the TMS will instruct the 8710 to register the new conference number prior to the conference starting successfully.
Our setup is pretty straight-forward.
- We use TMS 14.3, VCS x7.2.2, and TPS (MSE 8710 cluster) ver 3.0 to handle scheduling which is the core of the business. They like the idea of coming into a system and pressing one button to join a conference.
- All the endpoints are cisco/tandberg endpoints with TC6.3+. They are register to the single VCS currently.
- The 8710 cluster also registers to the single VCS.
Currently, from my understanding, the conductor does not yet support scheduled conferencing.
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...
