CUPC and IPPM phone presence issue

Hi All,

I am now integrating CUPS 7.0.2 to CUCM, and CUCM is using its local user database and CUPS have a LDAP integration. Also, this setup does not use DNS.

I have installed CUPC and configured the IPPM phone service for the IP phone. Everything seems working fine, I can send the instant message and see the different presence status. However, if I reset the phone in CUCM admin page or by pressing **#** or disconnected the power. I found that in CUPC cannot detect the on/off hook phone presence. Besides, I have the same symptom on IPPM, IPPM cannot view the phone availability.

Is it normal or I have missed something?



Re: CUPC and IPPM phone presence issue

Did you mean:

1) Phone presence was working on CUPC before

2) You reset the phone

3) Now phone presence stops working on CUPC?

When you say "phone presence", did you mean the popup window on CUPC or the "on-the-phone" status of CUPC status?

Re: CUPC and IPPM phone presence issue

Hi Michael,

Yes. The phone presence works in the very beginning, it doesn't work after resetting the phone.

I can see the popup windows on CUPC, but the "on the phone" status does not show.


(Attachment is in normal situation, after reset the CUPC will keep in "available" status.)


Re: CUPC and IPPM phone presence issue

Couple things to check:

1) Go to CUCM > Device > Phone.  Find the phone in problem.  Go to the line (DN) configuration.  Go to the bottom of the page.  Is there a user associated with the line?  Is it that the user you logged into CUPC with?

2) Go to CUPS > System Diagnositics > System Troubleshooter.  See if you got any error/warning regarding the SIP trunk.

3) Go to CUCM > Device > Trunk.  Look at the SIP trunk.  Is the destination address in IP address?  If it's in DNS name, is the name resolvable?  Is the destination port 5060?

4) If everything checked out, you may try reset the SIP trunk from CUCM and restart "Presenece Engine" from CUPS.

If still having problem, we need to get traces:

1) Set "Cisco CallManager" trace level to detailed.  Make sure "SIP Call Process" is checked in the trace options.

2) Get the phone off hook.  Wait for 3 seconds.  Put it on hook.

3) Get "Cisco CallManager" traces.

In traces, CUCM should send "PUBLISH SIP" message to CUPS corresponding to the offhook event.  If not, the problem is on CUCM.

I got the logging from the RTMT, I found the PUBLISH SIP message in the logging.

It seems that CUCM response to this offhook event successful. Any ideas?
