Usage Guidelines and Restrictions
This section provides usage guidelines and restrictions for the CMM.
•The recommended VAD setting for the CMM is off.
These sections describe the following release caveats:
Open Caveats in Release 12.2(2)YK1
This section describes the known limitations that exist in CMM software release 12.2(2)YK1.
•After a reload with the MGCP (XML) configuration download enabled, there might be a Warning on the Console saying "Warning: Primary line clock source is not operational." Actually, the clock source line primary is configured by MGCP (XML) configuration download before and after a reload. (CSCdy33340)
•There might be a problem when fax pass-through is configured but only when a fax or modem is in close proximity to an IP or PSTN phone. Once a call is established through the gateway, one-way audio can be triggered if either the IP phone or the PSTN phone is in close proximity to an audible fax or modem. Fax or modem tones induced into the line through the handset or speakers can trigger a PCM_SWITCHOVER resulting in one-way audio from the PSTN side.
Workaround: Increase the distance between the phone and the fax/modem, or reduce the fax/modem volume. (CSCdz14789)
•There is a problem with voice activity detection (VAD) or silence suppression when these are enabled on G.729 calls only. A delay will occur on the 7935 Polycom phone with some of the T1 (CAS/PRI) or E1 (PRI) voice calls. The delay is heard in only one direction from the PSTN to the 7935 Polycom phone. The delay problem occurs with varying amounts of delay. If you experience this problem, the workaround is to turn off VAD. (CSCdz19171)
Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(2)YK1
This section describes the resolved caveats in CMM software release 12.2(2)YK1.
•Voice calls fail on the CMM if the codec type configured is G711ULAW or G711ALAW with a 30-ms sampling rate. There is no problem when configured for 10-ms and 20-ms sampling rates. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy23154)
•A periodic clicking sound might be heard when a call is put on hold. The workaround is to configure unicast Music on Hold instead of multicast Music on Hold. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy49606)
•The temperature monitoring process has been optimized to reduce CPU utilization. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy41750)
•This problem might affect G.729 calls. An intermittent delay might be heard in the PSTN-to-IP phone direction for calls originating from the PSTN to an IP phone. If you experience this problem, the workaround is to turn VAD off. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy54786)
•The CMM temperature sensors on the baseboard should work as follows: The Sensor 1 field refers to the outtake temperature sensor, and the Sensor 2 field refers to the intake temperature sensor. However, the software "swaps" the temperature readings of the two sensors. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy84013)
•With auto configuration, you might not be able to download the complete XML configuration file. As a result, the configuration is not done.
Workaround: Manually create the configurations on the gateway. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdy51953)
•When reconfiguring the ISDN switch type from primary-ni to primary-5ess or updating any other value with that endpoint in CCM using the gateway auto configure feature, the T1 controller gets shut down when the reconfiguration is done. As a result of the reconfiguration, the Layer 1 is deactivated.
Workaround: 1. Manually change the switch type rather than using the auto config feature. 2. Or manually do a no shut after the auto reconfiguration is done. This problem is resolved in Release 12.2(2)YK1. (CSCdz17090)
Manual Configuration in the Absence of CMM-Specific XML Files
If you do not have the CMM-specific XML files or do not want to install CMM-specific XML files, you need to perform the following configuration tasks:
Note The problem requiring manual configuration in the absence of CMM-specific XML files has been fixed in the Cisco CallManager 3.2(2c)spF-rc3 support patch. If you load that patch, you do not need to perform the following configuration tasks.
•Configure the clock source line primary and clock source line secondary under T1/E1 controllers as per your requirements. The secondary clock source is a backup for the primary clock source and the CMM supports secondary clock sources from 1 to 17. The CMM must have clock source line primary and clock source line secondary configured to avoid any clock slips.
•The default configuration for the CMM is "Cisco Fax Relay." To run "Fax pass through calls," you need to supplement the default configuration with the following two commands:
–mgcp modem pass through voip mode cisco
–no ccm fax protocol cisco
•The default configuration for "echo cancel coverage" is set to 64 ms. This default can be changed as needed under voice-port configuration.
•The default configuration for "input gain" and "output attenuation" is set to 0 db. This default can be changed as needed under voice-port configuration.
The manual configuration is lost on a reload if you set the CMM for configuration download from Cisco CallManager. If the configuration is lost, you must reconfigure it. To retain the manual configuration, disable the automatic configuration download from Cisco CallManager before doing a CMM reload.
Related Cisco CallManager Caveats—Release 3.2(2c) and/or Earlier
This section describes the related Cisco CallManager caveats in release 3.2(2c) and/or earlier releases.
Note The caveats listed below have been fixed in the Cisco CallManager 3.2(2c)spF-rc3 support patch.
•The global GW database xxxx.cnf.xml file (in the tftppath directory in Cisco CallManager) does not get updated after changes are made in the MGCP configuration GUI. To update this file, you need to restart "TFTP service" on the Cisco CallManager. (CSCdy10859)
•Adding a new gateway does not automatically create the corresponding xxxx.cnf.xml file (in the tftppath directory in Cisco CallManager). To create this file, you need to restart "TFTP service" on Cisco CallManager. (CSCdy11956)
