After an upgrade to CRS 3.1(3) SR1, agents are able to log in. However, the JTAPI Update Tool fails. This problem appears with these steps:

  1. Verify the CRS Server and CallManager can ping each other.

  2. Verify the JTAPI client is available on the Publisher.

  3. Run Microsoft Internet Explorer and go to:

    http://<CallManager Publisher Name>/compluginsserver/ciscojtapiclient.exe

    If it is available, you should receive the File Download window.

  4. Click Cancel.

  5. Choose Start > Cisco CRA Administrator > JTAPI Update Tool. The Welcome to the JTAPI Client Update Wizard window appears.

  6. Click Next. The Cisco CallManager Database Location window appears.

  7. Enter the CallManager host name, Windows username, and password.

  8. Click Next. This error appears.

    This is the error message output:

    Could not transfer the JTAPI client from the Callmanager
    server you specified.
    ERROR DESCRIPTION: Path/File access error


This error message is due to a file access problem with CiscoJtapiClient.exe, which by default is located in the C:\Sti\Stage\CiscoPlugins\Server directory on the CRS server. In CRS version 3.1(3) SR1, it is set to read only which prevents the JTAPI Update Tool from replacing the existing CiscoJtapiClient.exe with the new one.

Complete these steps in order to work around this problem:

  1. Delete c:\Sti\Stage\CiscoPlugins\ServerCiscoJtapiClient.exe.

  2. Run the JTAPI Update Tool. How to Use the JTAPI Update Tool with Cisco IPCC Express details the procedure.
