Important Notes

The following section contains important information that may have been unavailable upon the initial release of documentation for Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3).

Cisco Communication Media Module

The Communication Media Module is referenced as Cisco Catalyst 6000 AVVID Services Module in the Cisco CallManager Administration, documentation, and online help.

Transcoder Bandwidth Allocation

Cisco CallManager only supports location configurations where a transcoder and a G.711 device are co-located. Cisco CallManager allocates 24 kbytes of bandwidth for calls that are using this configuration where the endpoint devices are using G.711 and G.729. Cisco CallManager does not allocate the correct bandwidth when you use a different codec or when the transcoder is located in a remote location.

Changing User IDs

Cisco CallManager does not support changing an existing user ID in the directory. Some applications, such as Cisco IPMA and Extension Mobility may not function properly when you change the user id.

Resolved Caveats for Cisco CallManager - Release 3.2(3)

Table 1 lists and describes caveats that were resolved in Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3).

Tip If you have an account with (Cisco Connection Online), you can use the Bug Toolkit to find caveats of any severity for any release.

Open Caveats for Cisco CallManager - Release 3.2(3)

Table 2 describes possible unexpected behaviors by Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3). Unless otherwise noted, these caveats apply to all Cisco CallManager 3.0 releases up to and including Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3).

Tip If you have an account with (Cisco Connection Online), you can use the Bug Toolkit to find caveats of any severity for any release. To access the Bug Toolkit, log on to

Table 2 Open Caveats for Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3) 





Minor memory leak (svchost/tapisrv) occurs when a TAPI application stops.

Svchost.exe has a memory leak of approximately 8Kbytes in svchost.exe when a TAPI application starts up and then shutdowns. There is an additional memory leak of approximately 4 Kbytes when Cisco TSP is installed. This is cause by the COM object initialization routine that is performed by Cisco TSP when it uses the TAPI wave driver.


For client based applications such as Cisco SoftPhone, a memory leak of 12Kbytes does not get notice, since the PC or laptop gets shut down on a regular basis. Shutting down the machine cleans up the memory.

For server based applications which typically do not get shut down, avoid restarting an application without restarting the server.

In the scenario where you have a PC on throughout the year and you start and stop an application 3-4 times a day, the unreleased memory increases to 13-18MB total per year. To free the unreleased memory, restart svchost.exe when the application is not running or restart the PC.


The response time is slow for a lineAnswer() request for a CTI port.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco IP Phone 7940 does not allow a second line when a user logs in using extension mobility.

Workaround: None exists.


You cannot update calling search space after you change the selected partitions

Workaround: Delete the Calling Search Space and insert a new one.


Service Configuration Tool gives timeout error.

Cisco Configuration manager (service install/remove) functionality acts intermittently. Executing config.exe is problematic (it works some times, and it is hard to maintain).

Workaround: Use install CD or web download to add services. (In future release, this function will be added to a separate web page.)


If a transcoder is used, no audio path exists.

With the G.729 bandwidth established between IP-1 and Symbol phone, IP-1 calls Symbol phone, and the transcoder is allocated, but no audio path exists.

This occurs when you assign MRGL-1 to IP-1 and MRGL-3 to Symbol phone. MRGL-1 has MRG-1 (which has MOH-1, Transcoder-1), and MRGL-3 has MRG-3 (which has MOH-3, Transcoder-3). Assign G.729 bandwidth between IP-1 and Symbol phone (between regions in which these devices are located).

Workaround: None exists.


Incorrect reason code gets sent when user chooses the transfer to voice-mail button.

This situation occurs on a Cisco Unity system and affects outgoing calls only.

Workaround: None exists.


RTMT - You cannot monitor the Perfmon counters of a recovered node.


1. When this problem occurs, shut down all related browsers including both the AST applet window and Cisco CallManager Administration parent browser. Then, bring up a new AST applet window. This works 70 percent of the time.

2. The second way to solve this problem is to restart the IIS service.


Searching the phone directory with an empty parameter in the name field causes an error.

Workaround: None exists.


Call Park stops working for some call park extensions.

Some call park extensions stop, and this allows calls to be retrieved after an undetermined time. Other call park extensions continue functioning despite the failure.

The only way to retrieve a call from a failed extension is to wait for the call reversion timer to expire and have it ring the phone that parked the call.

Workaround: Rebooting the Cisco CallManager brings all failed call park extensions back. The problem, however, may return.


No ringback occurs on call transfers to a phone that is attached to a FXS module.

Workaround: None exists.


CTI ignores indicator and displays number instead of displaying Private.

An incoming call with blocked caller ID will show the calling number instead of a null value or a descriptive value such as Private.

Workaround: None exists.


DBLX does not parse some non-English characters properly.

Unlike DC Directory, Active Directory can store non-English characters in the first and last name field for users. When Cisco CallManager is integrated with Active directory by using AD plugin, the corporate directory search returns "?" for some non-English (single byte) characters on the XML pages.

Workaround: None exists.


Definition for BaudRate and DataBits in CMI service needs to be modified.

The definition for Cisco Messaging Interface Parameters indicates that Databits and BaudRate are defined as the same. Baudrate usually refers to speed whereas DataBits also refers to size.

Workaround: None exists.


Calls that are associated with a device that specifies Media Termination Point (MTP) Required in the device configuration page connect with no MTP when there are no more MTP resources.

Supplementary services do not work when there are no MTP resources.

Workaround: None exists.


Calls got lost when Cisco CallManager and Cisco Catalyst 6000 got out of synchronization.

Workaround: None exists.


G.723 calls between Cisco IOS gateway and Cisco ATA186 that is using SCCP get disconnected.

Calls between Cisco ATA186 and IP phones that support G.723 receive one-way audio. This occurs on Cisco ATA 186 that is using SCCP.

Workaround: Set up Cisco ATA 186 to use H.323.


Extension mobility multi-login behavior does not work properly.

User can still log in to multiple devices when the service parameter for multi-login is set to Not Allowed or Auto Logout. This behavior occurs when the multiple logins are enabled on different devices simultaneously.

Workaround: None exists.


User gets an error if the user did not apply the settings for Backup and Restore utility during the initial installation.

The user cannot configure backup and restore settings when the user presses the cancel button on the settings screen during the initial installation of Cisco CallManager.

Workaround: Run the local file _stibacksetup.exe to configure the settings.


Users cannot set passwords with the bracket character "{."

Workaround: Do not use a password that begins with "{."


You cannot search for a user with a digit in the name fields from CCMUser page.

Workaround: Search for the user on the Cisco IP Phone.


Cisco CallManager server sends Simplified Message Desk Interface (SMDI) packets with zeros for an unknown calling party when the Cisco Messaging Interface (CMI) service Parameter UseZeroForUnknownDn is disabled.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco CallManager service restarted due to corrupted data after a destructor was sent.

Workaround: None exists.


Internationally forwarded voice mail traversing a gateway to a PBX fails to route locally.

Calls from an international Octel voice-mail system and forwarded to another Octel mailbox failed.

Workaround: Use the following firmware on the Cisco Catalyst 6000 24 Port FXS Analog Interface Module:

App: A00203010014

DSP: A003F031


The All option for the port field for gateways in the Route Group Configuration page should be deleted.

Workaround: None exists.


The SQLSvc account does not get created during installation.

Cisco CallManager server joins a Windows Domain with a defined password policy. If the default SQLSvc password does not meet the policy requirement, account creation fails.

Workaround: Three options exist:

1. Manually create the SQLSvc Account on the publisher and all subscriber servers. Then reconfigure all Services and Component Services to use the SQLSvc account and password.

2. Remove the Windows domain enforced policies from the Cisco CallManager server.

3. Remove the Cisco CallManager from the Windows domain.


User did not get an error when SQL Replication failed during an upgrade.

The new CCM03XX database did not get created, and the Cisco CallManager server does not work. The C:\DBConvert.log file displays the following lines:

CDataConverter::ProcessScript Error 1205, [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Your transaction (process ID #59) was deadlocked with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun your transaction.

Workaround: Go back to the backup version and rerun the upgrade. Make sure that all passwords for the administrator and sqlsvc users are synchronized and that name resolution is correct. To ensure proper name resolution, use hosts and LMHOSTS files on all the nodes in the cluster.


Control Center reports errors on subscriber server connectivity

Workaround: None exists.


Installation on subscriber server fails because pull subscriptions from the publisher server failed.

Workaround: Start the installation on the subscriber server again with the first CD.


IP phone does not display the dialed number.

This situation happens when Cisco CallManager receives a NOTIFY message with a Display IE but no Connected Number IE.

Workaround: None exists.


The CCM.EXE process did not get CPU cycles when the hard drive failed.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco CallManager allows an uninstalled TFTP Service to be inserted.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco CallManager allows a user to disable extension mobility without logging out first.

This leaves the phone in the EM mode.

Workaround: Delete the phone from the database and let it auto-register. The phone configuration will be lost.


Upgrading to Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(2c) fails when the SQLSvc NT account gets locked out due to a lockout policy on the domain controller.

A "Ikernel.exe - Application Error" message displays during a Cisco CallManager server upgrade. Click OK to terminate the program.

Workaround: Set your domain security policy such that the Cisco CallManager servers will not lock out an account due to failed login attempts and then rerun the upgrade, preferably starting from a known good backup because, after Ikernel.exe crashes, the system remains in an unknown state.

To ensure that the upgrade completes successfully, you must disable any security policies that cause the SQLSvc account to lock. If the Cisco CallManager server exists in a domain, you must disable the Domain Security Policies on the server that acts as the Domain Controller. You also must disable the Local Security Policies on the local Cisco CallManager server(s), even if the server does not exist in a domain.

For detail information on how to perform these tasks, refer to Upgrading Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(2c).

Caution Disabling the security policies makes any server in the domain vulnerable to attacks. Immediately after you upgrade every server in the cluster, re-enable security policies.


The help text for the i button and ? button for Cisco IP Phone models 7960 and 7940 have inaccurate description

Help text should indicate, "This field is not currently used. Leave this field blank."

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco Extension Mobility Logout service does not get installed when you upgrade Cisco CallManager to Release 3.2(2c).

Workaround: From the command prompt, enter C:\Program Files\Cisco\bin\LogoutService\Install

Change service startup type from manual to automatic and start Cisco logout service.


You cannot add subscriber servers to a cluster.

Workaround: None exists.


Event log errors reference previous Cisco CallManager database.

This situation happens during an upgrade in a clustered environment. The publisher server deletes its publication of the previous database, but the subscriber server does not.

Workaround: Manually create the publication on the publisher server for the previous database or delete the subscriptions for the previous database on the subscriber servers.


CallPark number in Calling Search Space (CSS) partitions toggles from busy to callable.

This situation occurs in the follow scenario:

phA - CSS01 Dirn - RPART01

phB - CSS01 Dirn - RPART01

phC - CSS02 Dirn - RPART02








8000 / RPART01

8000 / RPART02

The user alternates between being able to pick up the call and not being able to retrieve it on ph C when A calls B and parks the call.

Workaround: Configure different callpark numbers for different partitions.


Netmeeting calls get dropped when the IP voice media streaming application is restarted.

Workaround: None exists.


Corporate Directory does not get displayed on Cisco IP Phone 7940 or 7960.

Workaround: Rename the global.asa file located in directory c:\ciscowebs\ipphoneservices\ccmcip.


Call pickup fails with blind conference calls.

Workaround: None exists.


You cannot use a line while Cisco CallManager server is processing a call forward no answer call.

Users on phones that have been forwarded receive the silent tone when they try to answer a call during the call establishment timeframe. The call establishment timeframe represents the time from when Cisco CallManager starts redirecting a call to a new destination and when Cisco CallManager finishes disconnecting the call at the forwarded phone. During this time, the user cannot make new calls or answer calls even when the phone is ringing. At the end of the call establishment timeframe, the user can make and answer calls normally. The length of the call establishment timeframe varies depending on the Cisco CallManager traffic and network traffic while the call is directed to the new destination.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco CallManager server does not recover its ports or TCP sockets after correcting a H.323 Routing Loop configuration.

This occurs when you create a route loop that crosses two or three clusters with H.323 intercluster trunk (ICT).

Workaround: Reboot every Cisco CallManager server in all the clusters.


Cisco CallManager needs to manage H.323 routing loops.

Resources are used up when a route loop across a large H.323 ICT cluster-to-cluster configuration (Route Pattern, Route List and a Route Group with 6 H.323 ICTs) is created.

Workaround: Do not create routing loops.


CTI Framework user displays when you do a corporate directory search.

Workaround: None exists.


User can pick up call after deleting the Pickup group number.

Cisco CallManager does not allow group pickup after deletion, but it allows call pickup

Workaround: Update and reset the phone.

Workaround: None exists.


Transcoder resource gets allocated for an IP phone in a G. 729 ICT Call between a Cisco IP Phone 12 SP + and a Cisco IP 7900 series phone.

This happens when you set up a ICT between two clusters that are using G.729 on both sides. The transcoder is placed in the Media Resource Group. When you make a call from Cisco IP Phone 12 SP + to the Cisco IP 7900 series phone, a transcoder is used for the Cisco IP Phone 12 SP +, and another transcoder is used for the Cisco IP 7900 series phone.

Workaround: None exists.

DC Directory Server service fails to start waiting for journal process to complete.

This happens when the server gets powered off without a graceful shutdown of the operating system. The journal becomes corrupt and the transactions in the journal do not get committed to the directory.


1. Rename c:\dcdsrvr\run\dcx500\journal\JOURNAL.DAT to journal.old.

2. Start DC Directory Server Service.

3. Execute DCDREPCL TRIGGER ALL from the command line.

DCD pauses while this command executes. This can take up to 30 minutes when there are 10,000 users in the directory.


Lines go out of service and take a long time to go back in service when Cisco CallManager fails over.

An accumulation of timeouts in the database layer and the application layer can cause this situation. When the Cisco CallManager fails over from publisher server to a subscriber server, the database layer does not recognize this change until it receives a query. The client initialization can take up to 40 seconds for the database query to timeout before the database layer connects to the database on the subscriber. The application layer also times out while waiting for the initialization to complete during this interval. The application waits a set interval to reconnect. It can take up to 2 minutes to connect successfully.

Workaround: Increase the application ProviderOpenTimeout timeout to a minimum of 50 seconds. This will allow the first initialization to complete.


Cisco CallManager does not have help information for the SRST reference

Workaround: None exists.

MCS-7815 has memory timing issues.

MCS-7815-1000 servers with memory in Slot 1 and Slot 2 may crash.

Workaround: Move the memory into Slot 2 and Slot 3. Consult the diagram on the inside cover of the MCS-7815-1000 for the numbering of the DIMM slots.

You should always populate memory starting with slot (3) and work towards slot (1).

When you use the same size memory modules,

one DIMM - slot (3)

two DIMM - slot (3) and slot (2)

three DIMM - slot (3), slot (2), and slot (1)

When you use different size memory module, use the largest in slot (3) and then the next largest in slot (2).

Example: 512 MB - slot (3) and 256 MB in slot(2)

This causes the gatekeeper to disconnect the call.

Workaround: None exists.


The third party SQL trigger interrupts CDR data.

When you upgrade Cisco CallManager, the database name increments, such as CCM0300 to CCM0301. Third-party billing software has SQL triggers that are hard coded to the original database name. The trigger points to the old database name and causes all the CDR data to be written to the wrong directory on the publisher.

Workaround: Edit the trigger to point to the current name of the database.

You can find the trigger on the publisher server by Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 > Enterprise Manager. Expand Microsoft SQL Servers. Expand SQL Server Group. Expand Local (machine name). Expand Databases.

Choose and expand the CDR database. Choose Tables and right click the entry on the window named CallDetailRecord> All Tasks > Manage Triggers. When you have more than one trigger, you can choose the desired trigger from the pulldown menu.

Copy the contents to a text editor and replace all instances of the previous name with the new name of the database. Copy the trigger back and check the syntax.


Calls forwarded to voice mail receive the unconditional greeting instead of busy greeting.

When the first voice-mail port gets unregistered, the originalCdpnRedirectReason gets set to 0 instead of 1. When the first voice-mail port gets registered, a call forward busy from a phone arrives at the first voice-mail port with call information of originalCdpnRedirectReason=1.

Workaround: Keep all voice-mail ports registered. When you unregister a port, change the forwarding information of the previous port to skip the unregistered port.

Workaround: None exists.


Cisco CallManager sends odd message timings with intercluster calls.

The sequence of operations that causes the problem:

1) Dial a number on a different cluster.

2) Put the intercluster call on hold.

3) Choose "New Call" and establish another call on the same cluster.

4) Put the intracluster call on hold.

5) Resume the intercluster call.

6) Choose "End Call" for the intercluster call.

7) Resume the intracluster call.

A minimal gap exists between stages 6 and 7 because the VG248 is faster than a human. The resume soft key is pressed very soon after the "TsOnHook" state message arrives for the intercluster call. The resumption of the intracluster call happens very quickly. A CloseReceiveChannel and a StopMediaTransmission message display as part of the teardown for the intercluster call. A StartMediaTransmission for the old call that contains the intercluster call recipient's IP address displays.

Workaround: None exists.


Speech path does not get created when you transfer a call from a H.323 network.

When a user attempts to transfer a call made from a Cisco H.323 Signaling Interface (HSI), the transferred call has no speech path because HSI can not handle the OpenLogicalChannelAck with RTP transport address set to "0".

Documentation Updates

This section provides documentation changes that were unavailable when the Cisco CallManager Release 3.2(3) documentation suite was released.


This section contains changes that have occurred since the original release of the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide Release 3.2. These changes do not currently appear in the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide Release 3.2 or the online help for the Cisco CallManager application.

Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway (VG248) Support

Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway (VG248) enables you to integrate analog telephones, modems, and fax machines with the Cisco CallManager IP telephony system. Using version 1.1(1) or later of the VG248 software, you can now integrate legacy voice mail and PBX systems with Cisco CallManager by using Simplified Message Desk Interface (SMDI).

When using the VG248 with Cisco CallManager 3.2, you have access to the following new feature:

The addition of a VG248 gateway type allows you to add the device as a gateway to Cisco CallManager and to configure each port as VGC phone model. This consolidates each of the 48 analog or SMDI ports onto a single device. However, after you add the gateway and ports to Cisco CallManager, you still must configure these ports in the VG248 interface. An additional port, port 00[VMI], appears on the VG248 Gateway Configuration window. This port appears regardless whether you are using the VG248 to integrate analog or SMDI devices. However, the VG248 uses this port only when you are setting or clearing MWIs on phones that are using SMDI.

For details about using the VG248 for SMDI integration, refer to Chapter 5, "Integrating Cisco CallManager with Voice Mail Systems Using SMDI" in the Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway Software Configuration Guide for details:

To view the latest compatibility information about the VG248 and Cisco CallManager, access the Cisco VG248 Analog Phone Gateway Version Release Notes at the following location on

T1-CAS Connection Reference Removed

References for immediate start for T1-CAS connection (DT-24+) in the Cisco Access Digital Trunk Gateways DT-24+/DT30+ section of the Cisco CallManager System Guide were removed.

Procedure for Starting the Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher

The Cisco WebAttendant Configuration section of the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide updates the following procedure.

Starting the Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher

The Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher (TCD) service starts running automatically when Cisco CallManager is started. The following procedure describes how to verify that the Cisco TCD service is running and how to start Cisco TCD if it is stopped.

Note If you add new attendant console users or modify the user information or password for an existing user, you must wait approximately 6 minutes for the changes to take effect.


Step 1 Choose Application > Cisco CallManager Serviceability.

Step 2 Choose Tools > Control Center.

Step 3 From the server list on the left side of the window, choose a Cisco CallManager server. The window refreshes.

The Service Name column lists all services that are configured on this server.

Step 4 Look at the Service Status column for the Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher:

If an arrow icon displays, the Cisco TCD service is running.

If a square icon displays, the Cisco TCD service is stopped.

Step 5 If the Cisco TCD service is not running, click the Start button in the Service Control column.

Note The Cisco TCD service must have an Activation Status of Activated before you can start the service. For information on activating services, refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide.

Updated Service Parameters Configuration

The Service Parameters Configuration section of the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide updates the following procedure.

Service parameters for Cisco CallManager allow you to configure different services on selected servers. You can view a list of parameters and their descriptions, by clicking the i button in the upper, right corner of the Service Parameter Configuration window. You can view the list with a particular parameter at the top by clicking that parameter.

If you deactivate a service by using Cisco CallManager Serviceability, Cisco CallManager deletes any updated service parameter values. If you start the service again, Cisco CallManager sets the service parameters to the default values.

Note If you set a service parameter value to the suggested value that displays on the Service Parameters Configuration window and the suggested value changes in a subsequent Cisco CallManager release, the system automatically changes the parameter value to match the updated suggested value when you upgrade to that release. If you set a service parameter to a value other than the suggested value, the system does not change the parameter value when you upgrade.

Before You Begin

Ensure the following prerequisites are met before proceeding with the steps:

Make sure that servers are configured. See the "Server Configuration" section for more information.

Make sure that the service is activated. Refer to the Cisco CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide for more information.

Caution Some changes to service parameters may cause system failure. Cisco recommends that you do not make any changes to service parameters unless you fully understand the feature that you are changing or unless the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) specifies the changes.


Step 1 Choose Service > Service Parameters.

Step 2 From the Server drop-down list box, choose a server.

Step 3 From the Services drop-down list box, choose the service that contains the parameter that you want to update.

Note If the service that you want to configure does not appear in the drop-down list box, you must activate the service on the server by using Cisco CallManager Serviceability.

Step 4 Update the appropriate parameter value. To set all service parameters for this instance of the service to the default values, click the Set to Default button.

To view a list of parameters and their descriptions, click the i button in the upper, right corner of the window. To view the list with a particular parameter at the top, click that parameter in the Service Parameter Configuration window.

Note Some services contain service parameters that should rarely be changed. The Cisco CallManager Administration does not automatically display these parameters when you access the Service Parameter Configuration window. To view all parameters, click Advanced. After all parameters are displayed, you can redisplay the basic parameters by clicking Condensed.

Step 5 Click Update.

The window refreshes, and Cisco CallManager updates the service parameter with your changes.


You can temporarily change the language for the User Information window by choosing a different language in the "View page in" drop-down list box. Doing so only changes the language that displays for the current web session. The next time that you log into Cisco CallManager Administration, the User Information window will display in English.

You can use the 6-port T1 and E1 interface modules of the Cisco Catalyst 6000 AVVID Services Module to connect to PBXs or to the PSTN.
