Telepresence Conductor OBTP scheduled conferences and TC endpoints registered to CUCM
I am experiencing an interesting issue with TP Conductor based OBTP scheduled conferences and the behavior of TC software based endpoints natively registered to CUCM.
- TelePresence Conductor XC2.2.1
- CUCM 9.1.2
- TMS 14.3.2
- TC 7.0.2
Scheduled conferences are configured as OBTP and the Conductor is the preffered MCU in routing.
Behind the Conductor is a TelePresence Server 7010 appliance.
The Conductor Alias Pattern is 805%, priority 100, is immersive is not checked, the generated regular expression is (805[^@]*).*
Numeric ID Base for the alias is 10, Numeric ID Step is 1, Numeric ID Quantity is 9.
When scheduling conferences with TMS, TMS is generating numbers in this sequence:
80510, 80511, 80512, etc.
In CUCM, the Conductor IP alias for rendezvous is a destination of a SIP trunk, and there is a
route pattern 8051X
pointing to it.
The conference alias in Conductor is
With OBTP and CTS software based endpoints everything works well, these 8051X numbers are pushed to the MIDlets of the IP Phone or Touch 12" and the endpoints connect to the telepresence server scheduled conference.
With the TC software based endpoints, when selecting Join now on the conference reminder pop up screen with the remote control, the endpoint is dialing both:
The TC endpoint then somehow automatically connects with two sessions to the telepresence server which is extremely awkward.
When pushing the red disconnect button on the remote control, I have an option to disconnect all calls, or disconnect the first or second call to the same dialed alias 80510@<CUCM-IP-Address>. If I disconnect one of the calls everything is OK.
But then, how come the TC based endpoint initates two calls in parallel to the Conductor and then Telepresence Server ?
Has anybody experienced a similar issue ?
If I manually dial 80510 everything is fine, the endpoint dials
80510@<CUCM-IP-Address> and it connects successfully.

I think theres an open issue with this. Sounds like a bug we encountered with another customer. Someone may beat me to it but this was seen on touch panel and the OSD. Will have a look for it over the weekend. If not it will be on Monday for sure.
Are you getting this error “Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported. The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The value UI mode identifiers...
The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
