I have three Tandberg C20 codecs at our office. I have our network vlan'd with separate client, print, voice (Cisco CUCM phones) and AV vlans. On top of that, I have each of those vlans separated between each floor of our office. This network and the codecs have been in use for the last 3.5 years with no issue.
A few months ago, all of a sudden none of the codecs were able to make or receive any video calls. After a reboot of the firewall (ASA 5510) two of the three codecs started working again. The third still has issues, hence this post. At this point, the problematic codec is having trouble even getting on the network. Here's the strangeness:
When put on its AV vlan for its floor (vlan 415) it cannot talk on the network with a static IP
When moved to another AV vlan from another floor, one that one of the other codecs are on and are working, it cannot talk on the network with a static IP for that vlan
When put on a voice subnet used for the phones (using the switchport config "switchport voice vlan xxx") it gets a dhcp address and is accessible. The interesting thing on that, is that switchport config had both swtichport vlan configs on it like this:
When the codec went on that switchport with that config, it went on the voice vlan of 410 and got a dhcp address for that vlan instead of going on vlan 401 and getting a dhcp address on that.
When put on a client vlan (like vlan 401 from above config) with dhcp configured and no voice vlan configured, it will not get a dhcp address
I just don't get it. I used two different switchports on the floor's access switch, tried multiple static IP addresses on each of the other vlans. It seems the ONLY way this codec will talk on the network is putting it on the voice vlan with that switchport config. I have other devices on that AV vlan that don't have any problem talking on the network. It's only this codec. I'm just wondering if there's something in the config of this codec creating this problem, but nothing stood out to me looking through it.
Codec is on version 6.0.1
original switchport config:
switchport access vlan 415
switchport mode access
vlan interface config
description 19th floor av network
ip address 10.19.15.2 255.255.255.0
no ip redirects
no ip unreachables
no ip proxy-arp
no ip mroute-cache
standby 0 ip 10.19.15.1
standby 0 priority 105
standby 0 preempt
standby 0 authentication xxx
Any ideas is greatly appreciated. Let me know if you would like any other details. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply. That is interesting. This non-working codec and one of the other working codecs are at 6.0.1. I just upgraded the other working codec from 3.5 to 6.0.1 the other day, and that continues to work, but I guess that doesn't mean it will continue to work.
The broken codec was at 6.0.0 and just today I updated it to 6.0.1.
The only other thing in the config I was just just looking at on the codec was in the general network settings at the bottom, the working codec is set to OFF for Voice Vlan Mode, and the broken one was set to Manual. Not sure if that would make a difference.
I'll definitely check out that bug, though, and try to update the codec to at least 6.1.1.
Got this figured out. Ended up not being the bug suggested above, as I upgraded to 6.2.0 as suggested. What it ended up being was the vlan voice mode. It was set to manual. Once I set it to off it started working on the normal subnet. So, my issue is resolved!
However, I'm going to now look into integrating it with our CUCM, so maybe I'll have to end up putting it back on the voice vlan!

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
