Step 3 In the Properties window, click the Version tab.

Step 4 In the Item Name list, click Product Version. The Cisco Unity-CM TSP version is displayed in the Value window.


Cisco Unity Voice Connector for Microsoft Exchange

This section contains two procedures. Do the procedure for your version of Cisco Unity.

To Determine the Voice Connector Version in Use: Cisco Unity 4.0 and Later, Voice Connector 10.0 and Later


Step 1 Log on to the Exchange server on which the Voice Connector is installed.

Step 2 In Windows Explorer or My Computer, browse to the applicable directory:

Exchange 2000
or Exchange 2003

<ExchangeServerPath>\VoiceGateway\Bin

Exchange 5.5

Exchange 5.5

<ExchangeServerPath>\Voice\Bin\LocalizedFiles\ENU


Step 3 Right-click SetupRes.dll, and click Properties.

Step 4 In the Properties window, click the Version tab to view the File Version.


 

Active Directory Schema Extensions for Cisco Unity with Exchange

In Cisco Unity 4.0(1), the attribute cisco-Ecsbu-UM-Schema-Version was added to the LDIF script file Avdirmonex2k.ldf, which contains the Active Directory schema extensions required by Cisco Unity with Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003. In Cisco Unity 4.0(3), the attribute cisco-Ecsbu-UM-Schema-Version was added to the LDIF script files Omnigateway.ldf and Vpimgateway.ldf, which are used to extend the Active Directory schema for Bridge Networking and VPIM Networking, respectively.

To extend the Active Directory schema, you run a Cisco Unity utility called ADSchemaSetup. The utility applies the schema extensions specified in the LDIF script files located on Cisco Unity DVD 1 and CD 1 in the directory Schema\LdifScripts. (A procedure for running ADSchemaSetup is included in the Cisco Unity installation guide, the Networking in Cisco Unity Guide, the Cisco Unity Bridge Installation Guide, and the Cisco Unity Bridge Networking Guide.)

The user interface for ADSchemaSetup consists of a dialog box with check boxes that correspond to the following LDIF script files:

Directory Monitor

Avdirmonex2k.ldf

Bridge Connector

Omnigateway.ldf

VPIM Connector

Vpimgateway.ldf


 

To View the Version of the Schema Extensions


Step 1 On the desktop of the server on which ADSchemaSetup was run, open the folder Ldif logs, and open the file Ldif.log in Notepad. Note that a separate folder and Ldif.log file is saved for Avdirmonex2k.ldf, Omnigateway.ldf, and Vpimgateway.ldf.

Step 2 Scroll to the end of the file, and click the last line. There is more than one instance of cisco-Ecsbu-UM-Schema-Version in the file, and you need to locate the last instance.

Step 3 Click Edit > Find, enter cisco-Ecsbu-UM-Schema-Version, and click Up for the direction of the search.

Step 4 Click Find Next. A few lines down you should see a line containing the word "Description" followed by one of the following, as applicable:

Unity Bridge 4.0(3)

Unity VPIM 4.0(3)

Unity 4.0

Note that the version displayed is the Cisco Unity version when the LDIF file was last modified, which may be older than your Cisco Unity version. (For example, the last time Vpimgateway.ldf was modified was in 4.0(3), so you will see "Unity VPIM 4.0(3)" as the description even though you have installed a later version.)


 

In future versions of Cisco Unity, the LDIF scripts will be updated to write a new version description if there are changes between versions. The updated description will be added to the existing description rather than replacing it so that there is a history of the schema extensions that have been applied.

For example, assume that the schema has been extended for Cisco Unity 4.0(2). If in Cisco Unity 4.0(9) there are changes to the file Avdirmonex2k.ldf, the description for cisco-Ecsbu-UM-Schema-Version would be:

Unity 4.0
Unity 4.0(9)

Note that the above is just an example. There are no changes planned to Avdirmonex2k.ldf at this time.

 

G.729a Audio Codec

When the G.729a audio codec has been installed on the Cisco Unity server or on a subscriber workstation, do the following procedure to determine the codec version.

To Determine the G.729a Audio Codec Version in Use


Step 1 Browse to the applicable directory, depending on the Windows version:

Windows 2003

Windows\System32 directory

Other versions

WinNT\System32


Step 2 Right-click Sl_g729a.acm, and click Properties.

Step 3 Click the Version tab.

Step 4 In the Items list, click Product Version. The G.729a audio codec version is displayed in the Value window.


Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (PCA)

To Determine the Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (PCA) Version in Use


Step 1 On the subscriber workstation, log on to the Cisco PCA.

Step 2 Browse to the Cisco Unity Assistant or the Cisco Unity Inbox, as applicable.

Step 3 On any page, click Help.

Step 4 Click the About Cisco Unity topic link on the menu.

The Cisco Unity version is displayed. The Cisco PCA version is the same as the Cisco Unity version.


Cisco Unity ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook

There are two ways to determine the version of ViewMail in use on a subscriber workstation. Do either procedure, as applicable.

To Determine the ViewMail Version in Use from Add/Remove Programs


Step 1 On the Windows Start menu on the subscriber workstation, click Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.

Step 2 In the Currently Installed Programs list, find ViewMail for Outlook.


To Determine the ViewMail Version in Use from Outlook


In the Outlook Inbox on the subscriber workstation, on the Help menu, click About ViewMail.


 

Important Information to Note from Earlier Cisco Unity 4.(x) Release Notes

This section contains information worth noting from the release notes of Cisco Unity versions earlier than 4.1(1). Release notes for all versions of Cisco Unity are available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_release_notes_list.html.

Exchange Is No Longer Supported on the Cisco Unity Server for Unified Messaging

When Cisco Unity with Exchange is configured as Unified Messaging, Exchange cannot be installed on the Cisco Unity server for Cisco Unity 4.x. You must either move Exchange users to other Exchange servers or, if there are no other Exchange servers, you must install Exchange on another server and move Exchange users to the new server.

(When Cisco Unity is configured as Voice Messaging, Exchange 5.5 is supported on a Cisco Unity 4.x server only if you are upgrading from a previous version of Cisco Unity. Exchange 2000 is supported on the Cisco Unity server both for upgrades and for new installations in the Voice Messaging configuration.)

Service Pack 3a for SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 Is Required

Because of the W32.Slammer worm, Cisco requires Service Pack 3a for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and MSDE 2000 with Cisco Unity 4.x.

Voice Cards Are Not Supported When Windows 2003 Is Installed On the Cisco Unity Server

When Windows Server 2003 is installed on the Cisco Unity server, voice cards and Dialogic software will not function correctly. Consequently, integrations that use voice cards are not supported for Cisco Unity servers on which Windows Server 2003 is installed. However, IP integrations (Cisco CallManager or Cisco SIP Proxy Server) and PIMG integrations are supported for Cisco Unity servers on which Windows Server 2003 is installed.

Downloading Software for Cisco Unity 4.1(1)

This section contains procedures for downloading the Microsoft updates recommended for use with Cisco Unity, and the CD images of the Cisco Unity Service Packs CDs and of Cisco Unity 4.1(1) CDs.


Caution Cisco Unity 4.1(1) is available only in U.S. English. You can install Cisco Unity 4.1(1) only on a server on which the U.S. English version of Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 is installed; you cannot change the locale of Windows to a setting other than English (United States); and you cannot upgrade an existing Cisco Unity system that is using a language other than U.S. English to version 4.1(1).

Downloading Microsoft Updates Recommended for Use With Cisco Unity


Caution If Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2000 administration software is installed on the Cisco Unity server, the Exchange 2000 Server Post-Service Pack 3 Update Rollup (KB 870540) must be installed, or you will not be able to install or upgrade to Cisco Unity 4.1(1).

To Download Microsoft Updates Recommended for Use With Cisco Unity


Step 1 Refer to Recommended Service Packs and Updates for Use with Cisco Unity and the Cisco Unity Bridge at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/cmptblty/msupdate.htm to determine which Microsoft updates are recommended for use with the software installed on the Cisco Unity server.

Step 2 Confirm that the computer you are using has sufficient hard disk space for the currently recommended updates. For the downloaded files and for the extracted updates, you will need approximately two times the total of the download file sizes. (The download file sizes appear on the Microsoft Updates for Cisco Unity page.)

Step 3 On a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, go to the Microsoft Updates for Cisco Unity Software Download page at http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/unity_msft_updates.


Note To access the software download page, you must be logged on to Cisco.com as a registered user.


Step 4 Click the file name of the Microsoft updates to download.


Caution Download only updates in English. Cisco Unity 4.1(1) is not supported on a server on which Windows or other software is installed in another language.

Step 5 Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download.

Step 6 Repeat Step 4 and Step 5 for each Microsoft updates file that you need.

Step 7 When all downloads are complete, extract the files to separate directories:

a. In Windows Explorer, double-click the file.

b. In WinZip, specify a directory to which the files will be extracted.

Step 8 Burn a CD for all of the files, and label the CD "Cisco Unity 4.1(1) Post-Installation CD <date>."

If you have a Post-Installation CD shipped from Cisco, set it aside so you do not accidentally use the wrong CD during installation or upgrade.

Step 9 When you are done extracting the files, delete the downloaded .exe files, to free disk space.

Cisco Unity Documentation Policy Has Changed

Beginning with Cisco Unity 4.1, we are no longer revising product guides for minor releases. Instead, we are publishing a documentation addendum that is designed to be used in conjunction with the last published guides. The Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 should be used with the 4.0(5) and later versions of Cisco Unity guides on Cisco.com at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/tsd_products_support_series_home.html. Everything in those guides applies to version 4.1(1), except as noted in the addendum.

Each chapter in the addendum corresponds to a guide in the product documentation set. New features are described in sections in the applicable guide chapter. Information that has changed in a guide—either because Cisco Unity functionality changed or because the information is incorrect—is described in the "Errors" section at the end of the guide chapter. (Note that if a guide has no corresponding chapter in the addendum, it means that there is no new or changed content, and the 4.0(5) and later version of the guide on Cisco.com applies to 4.1(1).)

For all release types (major, minor, and maintenance), release notes will continue to be published, and non-versioned documentation (for example, compatibility matrixes and Recommended Service Packs and Updates for Use with Cisco Unity and the Cisco Unity Bridge) and Cisco Unity System Requirements, and Supported Hardware and Software will continue to be updated. Release notes also will continue to summarize new and changed functionality, and will refer to the applicable sections in the addendum for more information.

The Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm. A link to the addendum appears under the heading "Cisco Unity Version 4.1" on the Cisco.com web page for each guide type (Install and Upgrade Guides, Configuration Guides, Feature Guides, Maintain and Operate Guides, etc.).

Cisco Unity Failover Supports Integrations Through PIMG Units

Integrations with circuit-switched phone systems through PIMG units are supported for use with a Cisco Unity system configured for failover.

Cisco Unity Tools Depot

Cisco Unity Conversation Enhancements

The Cisco Unity conversation—also known as the TUI (telephone user interface)—has been enhanced in several ways. The enhancements are described individually within the "New Functionality—Release 4.1(1)" section:

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Alternate Greeting Notices

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Message Locator Searches Can Include Receipts

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Allowing Subscribers to Access Cisco Unity by Phone Without Entering a Password

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Enabling a Post-Greeting Recording

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Disabling the "Record Your Message at the Tone" Prompt

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Disabling the "Wait While I Transfer Your Call" Prompt

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Specifying That Cisco Unity Play New Messages Automatically

For a summary of changes made to the default settings and functionality for the Cisco Unity conversation and the Cisco PCA applications for Cisco Unity 4.1(1), see the "Changed Functionality—Release 4.1(1)" section.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Alternate Greeting Notices

Alternate greeting notices are a type of message receipt and work as follows: whenever a subscriber leaves or sends a message to a subscriber who has the alternate greeting enabled, Cisco Unity delivers the message and also sends the sender an alternate greeting notice. The notice says:

"The alternate greeting for <subscriber name or ID> is on and will remain on until <expiration date for the greeting>. The message you sent was delivered, but the recipient may not be available to play it."

Alternate greeting notices are disabled by default. Consider enabling them so that all subscribers associated with a server are alerted when a message recipient has the alternate greeting enabled. As long as subscribers can access receipts, they can play notices by phone or view the text from the Cisco Unity Inbox. Alternate greeting notices do not trigger message waiting indicators (MWIs).

Alternate greeting notices are supported only for Cisco Unity Voice Messaging configurations and Cisco Unity systems using Microsoft Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000.

For more information on how alternate greeting notices work and how to enable them, refer to the "Enabling Alternate Greeting Notices (Cisco Unity Voice Messaging with Microsoft Exchange 2003/2000 Only)" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Changing How Cisco Unity Handles Messages That Contain Text

You can set up Cisco Unity so that it rejects messages sent to Voice Messaging subscribers if the messages contain text. In this way, you can ensure that Voice Messaging subscribers receive only those messages that they can play in their entirety. When Cisco Unity rejects messages that contain text, Unified Messaging subscribers receive a nondelivery receipt (NDR) and can learn to adjust their messaging habits accordingly.

For more information and a task list for enabling the feature, refer to the "Changing How Cisco Unity Handles Messages That Contain Text (Cisco Unity with Exchange)" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Disabling Delete Confirmations in the Cisco Unity Inbox

You can use the Advanced Settings Tool to change the registry so that the Cisco Unity Inbox either never asks subscribers to confirm a deletion, or asks them to confirm a deletion only when deleting an item will delete it permanently.

For details on setting up this functionality, refer to Advanced Settings Tool Help. The setting is called Unity Inbox-Confirm Deletes.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Message Locator Searches Can Include Receipts

You can specify whether to include new and saved receipts in Message Locator searches on the applicable Features page for a subscriber template or an individual subscriber in the Cisco Unity Administrator or by using the Bulk Edit utility. By default, receipts are not included in Message Locator searches.

When subscribers search for messages from a particular subscriber and Message Locator is set to include receipts, the following receipts are included in search results, in addition to voice messages: nondelivery receipts (NDRs), return (read and delivery) receipts, and alternate greeting notices. Note that receipts are included in the search results regardless of whether subscribers can access receipts when they check messages by phone or in the Cisco Unity Inbox. (You can use the Advanced Settings Tool in Tools Depot to prevent subscribers from accessing receipts.)

For a procedure, refer to the "Including Receipts in Message Locator Searches (Cisco Unity with Exchange)" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Allowing Subscribers to Access Cisco Unity by Phone Without Entering a Password

By default, subscribers are prompted for a password before they can log on to Cisco Unity to check messages or to change personal settings. As a convenience to subscribers, you can specify that Cisco Unity does not prompt them for a password when they access their mailbox from their primary extension or alternate devices.

For more information on how the feature works and how to enable it, refer to the "Allowing Subscribers to Access Cisco Unity by Phone Without Entering a Password" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Enabling a Post-Greeting Recording

You can use the settings on the applicable Subscribers > Class of Service > Greetings page in the Cisco Unity Administrator to specify whether Cisco Unity plays a recording before allowing callers to leave a message for subscribers assigned to a class of service (COS). You can also indicate whether all callers hear the recording or only unidentified callers. For each COS, you use the Media Master control bar on the page to record what you want callers to hear.

Callers hear the recording immediately after listening to the subscriber greeting, regardless of which personal greeting is enabled for the subscriber. The post-greeting recording also plays after a call handler greeting when the call handler is configured to take a message and the message recipient for the call handler is a subscriber who is assigned to a COS that has the recording enabled. Though callers can press # to skip a subscriber or call handler greeting, callers cannot skip the post-greeting recording.

By default, the feature is disabled for all COSes.

For more information on how the post-greeting recordings work and how to enable them, refer to the "Enabling a Post-Greeting Recording" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Disabling the "Record Your Message at the Tone" Prompt

By default, Cisco Unity plays the "Record your message at the tone" prompt after playing a subscriber or call handler greeting. Because some subscribers use the same instruction in their greetings, callers can hear it twice. For this reason, you may want to specify that Cisco Unity does not play the prompt after some or all greetings when callers leave messages for particular subscribers or call handlers in your organization.

For a procedure, refer to the "Disabling the "Record Your Message at the Tone" Prompt" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Disabling the "Wait While I Transfer Your Call" Prompt

By default, Cisco Unity plays the "Wait While I Transfer Your Call" prompt when it transfers a call to an extension. Some callers do not like hearing the prompt, and for this reason, you may want to specify that Cisco Unity does not play it.

For a procedure, refer to the "Disabling the "Wait While I Transfer Your Call" Prompt" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Customizing the Cisco Unity Conversation: Specifying That Cisco Unity Play New Messages Automatically

By default, subscribers hear the Main menu after they log on to Cisco Unity. You can customize the conversation so that Cisco Unity plays new messages instead. With the feature enabled, subscribers do not have to press a key to play new messages ("Press 1 for new messages") because Cisco Unity begins playing them automatically.

For more information on how the feature works and how to enable it, refer to the "Specifying That Cisco Unity Play New Messages Automatically" section in the "Cisco Unity System Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Changed Functionality—Release 4.1(1)

This section contains information about changed functionality for Cisco Unity Release 4.1(1) only. Refer to the release notes of the applicable version for information on changed functionality in earlier versions of Cisco Unity. Release notes for all versions of Cisco Unity are available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_release_notes_list.html.

Note that the Cisco Unity Tools website may offer scripts and applications that were not included in Cisco Unity 4.1(1). Some offerings may not be supported by Cisco TAC. Refer to http://www.ciscounitytools.com/ for information.

Cisco Unity Conversation Changes

In addition to the enhancements described in the "New Functionality—Release 4.1(1)" section, some aspects of the Cisco Unity conversation—default settings and functionality—have changed. The changes are described individually within the "Changed Functionality—Release 4.1(1)" section.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Menu Allowing Subscribers to Delete Items When They Have an Almost Full or Full Mailbox Clarified and the Keys Assigned to Menu Options Remapped

Cisco Unity Conversation: Messages Are No Longer Marked Urgent Automatically

Cisco Unity Conversation: Phone Menu Response Settings Apply to All Menus

Cisco Unity Conversation: Reduced Delays After Multiple Key Presses

Cisco Unity Conversation: Subscribers Can No Longer Press 4 4 to Reply to All When Only One Recipient Will Receive the Reply

Cisco Unity Conversation: Subscribers Can Press ## or 00 to Switch Search Modes

Cisco Unity Conversation: "Too Many Matching Names" Prompt Clarified

Cisco Unity Conversation: Menu Allowing Subscribers to Delete Items When They Have an Almost Full or Full Mailbox Clarified and the Keys Assigned to Menu Options Remapped

In previous releases of Cisco Unity, when subscribers who had an almost full or full mailbox logged on to Cisco Unity by phone, Cisco Unity alerted them that their mailbox was almost full or full (as applicable), and then offered the following menu to allow them to delete messages from their Deleted Items folder: "For yes, press 1. For no, press 2."

Although offered as a convenience, the menu was problematic for two reasons:

Subscribers were uncertain how to proceed because the menu did not explicitly state what the "Yes" and "No" options would do.

Subscribers who were accustomed to pressing 1 1 as a shortcut to hear new messages immediately after logging on inadvertently deleted messages instead.

To improve usability of the menu, the prompt has been reworded and the keys for the two options have been remapped. The menu now says, "To delete messages, press 7. Return to the main menu, 9."

(Note that the new key mapping for the menu is not configurable via the Custom Key Map utility or the Advanced Settings Tool.)

Cisco Unity Conversation: Messages Are No Longer Marked Urgent Automatically

When subscribers forward or reply to an urgent message by phone, they can choose whether to mark the message as urgent. In previous releases, Cisco Unity automatically marked such messages as urgent.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Phone Menu Response Settings Apply to All Menus

The values that you specify for the Phone Menu Response fields in the Cisco Unity Administrator control all Cisco Unity phone menus heard by outside callers and subscribers—except the Sign-In conversations. (For security reasons, you cannot change the number of times Cisco Unity repeats the menus for the Sign-In conversations.)

In Cisco Unity version 4.0(5), the fields were added to the Cisco Unity Administrator but controlled only a few of the menus heard by outside callers and subscribers. The fields appear on the Conversation pages for subscribers and templates, and on the System > Configuration page of the Cisco Unity Administrator:

How long Cisco Unity waits for subscriber to press a first key after playing a menu. This setting is also known as the First Digit Timeout.

How long Cisco Unity waits for additional key presses after subscriber has pressed a key. This setting is also known as the Interdigit Timeout.

How many times Cisco Unity repeats a menu if the subscriber has not responded to a menu.

The location and default values for the fields in the Cisco Unity Administrator have not changed. However, the default values may differ slightly from the menu response settings that were "hard-coded" for the additional menus now controlled by the phone menu response fields.

For additional information on how to use the phone menu response settings, refer to the Cisco Unity Administrator Help on the Conversation pages for subscribers and templates, and on the System > Configuration page.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Reduced Delays After Multiple Key Presses

In previous releases of Cisco Unity, when subscribers pressed more than one key to navigate to another menu or skip ahead within a task, Cisco Unity was often slow to respond, especially when several keys were pressed in a row. For example, when subscribers pressed ##### to skip and save several messages at once, subscribers experienced a noticeable delay before Cisco Unity responded.

Cisco Unity now responds just as quickly to multiple key presses as it does when subscribers press a single key. To hear the difference, listen to the audio examples in the short presentation Reduced Delays After Multiple Key Presses in Cisco Unity 4.1(1) available on the Training page of the Cisco Unity Tools website at http://www.ciscounitytools.com/TOI_Unity41.htm.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Subscribers Can No Longer Press 4 4 to Reply to All When Only One Recipient Will Receive the Reply

When a message is sent to multiple recipients homed on servers that are connected by SMTP or VPIM networking, the message is sometimes delivered to each recipient as a separate message. In such cases, Cisco Unity no longer allows subscribers to press 4 4 to reply to all recipients, as only the recipient is the sender. When subscribers press 4 4, they will hear, "Invalid selection."

For situations in which there are multiple recipients for subscribers to respond to—as when all the recipients are all homed on the same Cisco Unity server or the recipients are homed on servers that are digitally networked, subscribers can press 4 4 to reply to all.

In previous releases, Cisco Unity allowed subscribers to reply to all even when there was only one recipient, which caused confusion as subscribers assumed that Cisco Unity had delivered their reply to multiple recipients.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Subscribers Can Press ## or 00 to Switch Search Modes

When subscribers use Cisco Unity to address messages, edit private lists, or find messages by phone, they search for a subscriber either by spelling the name or by entering the extension. Subscribers can switch search modes by pressing ## or 00. By default, Cisco Unity responds to either key combination. You do not need to configure it to do so.

If subscribers in your organization are likely to press 00 to switch search modes—perhaps because it is a key combination they used with a former voice messaging system, it is important to consider its limitations. See the "Cisco Unity Conversation: Delay When Subscribers Press 00 to Switch Search Modes" section for details.

Cisco Unity Conversation: "Too Many Matching Names" Prompt Clarified

The prompt that subscribers hear when Cisco Unity tells them that there are too many matches to a partial spelling of a name was reworded for clarity. After subscribers enter the letters of a name that matches more than eight other names in the directory, they hear: "Too many matching names. Enter the next few letters. To start over or enter a new name, press *."

In previous releases, subscribers heard, "Too many matching names. Enter more letters." Some subscribers misinterpreted the prompt, and responded by starting again and entering more letters, rather than by entering additional letters beginning with the next letter in the name. As a result, Cisco Unity reported that no matches were found.

Cisco Unity Administrator and ViewMail for Outlook No Longer Require Manual Update to Server Name in the Media Master When Failover or Failback Occur

Cisco Unity administrators no longer need to ask subscribers to update their server name setting during failover or after failback. Assuming that subscribers had already set up the Media Master to use the phone as a recording or playback device for the Cisco Unity Administrator or for Cisco Unity ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook, they can continue to do so when failover or failback occur without having to manually update the Media Master with the applicable server name.

Note that subscribers still need to use the correct URLs to access the Cisco Unity Administrator on the active server. Additionally, subscribers must use ViewMail version 4.1(1) with Cisco Unity version 4.1(1) for the connection to the server to work automatically during failover and failback.

Subscribers enter their extension and the Cisco Unity server name in order to use the phone as a playback and recording device with the Cisco Unity Administrator and ViewMail. Although the connection works anyway, the server name is not updated in the Phone Record and Playback Settings dialog box of the Media Master during failover and failback.

For an overview of how the Cisco Unity Administrator, ViewMail, and other Cisco Unity applications such as the Status Monitor and the Cisco PCA work when failover or failback occur, refer to the "Effects on Cisco Unity Web Applications When Failover or Failback Occurs" section in the "Cisco Unity Failover Configuration and Administration Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Exchange 2003/2000 Permissions Can Be Granted at Administrative Group Level

You can delegate Exchange Administrator control to the installation account and delegate Exchange Administrator or Exchange View Only Administrator control to the directory services account at the administrative group level. In previous versions of Cisco Unity, you were required to delegate control to those accounts at the Exchange organization level.

If you have multiple Cisco Unity servers and you want to use Digital Networking, for all administrative groups in which Cisco Unity subscriber mailboxes are homed, you must delegate the following controls:

Exchange Administrator control to the installation account for every Cisco Unity server.

Exchange Administrator or Exchange View Only Administrator control to the directory service account for every Cisco Unity server.

Otherwise, Digital Networking is not supported.

Using Cisco Unity Bridge Networking, AMIS Networking, or VPIM Networking is supported only when you delegate control to the installation and directory services accounts at the organization level.

For updated documentation, refer to the Cisco Unity Permissions wizard Help file PWHelpExchange_ENU.htm.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Message Locator Uses Same Search Mode As Specified for Addressing Messages and Editing Lists

The Message Locator feature respects the search mode preference that subscribers set for addressing messages and editing private lists. (Subscribers use the Cisco Unity Assistant to dictate whether Cisco Unity prompts them to spell the last name then the first name, spell the first name then the last name, or to enter the extension.) In Cisco Unity version 4.0(5), when subscribers used the Message Locator to find messages from another subscriber, the Message Locator prompted them to spell the last name then the first name.

FAQ Available in Cisco Unity Administrator and on Cisco Unity Desktop

An FAQ is available from the navigation bar in the Cisco Unity Administrator and on the desktop of the Cisco Unity server. The FAQ addresses questions often asked by Cisco Unity administrators.

Usability Improved on Subscribers > Subscribers > Account Page in the Cisco Unity Administrator

The following field names on the Subscribers > Subscribers > Account page in the Cisco Unity Administrator were clarified to improve usability:

The Cisco Unity Account Status check box was changed to "Cisco Unity TUI Access Status" to clarify what the check box controls.

The Created check box was changed to "Account Created" to clarify what was created.

The Last Phone Contact field was changed to "Last TUI Access" to clarify the information conveyed.

The read-only text for the Windows Account Status field was changed from "Locked/Unlocked" to "Enabled/Disabled" to reflect Windows terminology.

In addition, when an account is locked, read-only information is displayed on the page to explain why. For example, if an account is locked because a Cisco Unity administrator has checked either the Cisco Unity TUI Access Status or the Cisco Unity GUI Access Status check boxes on the page, the message "Account locked by administrator" is displayed to the right of the applicable check box. If an account is locked because someone has exceeded the number of invalid logon attempts specified for the account, the message next to the applicable check box indicates that information.

Finally, presentation of the call handlers list (as applicable), and the general spacing and indentation of fields on the page was improved.

Cisco Unity Malfunctions After Exchange 2000 EDSLock Script Is Run

Microsoft Knowledge Base article 313807, XADM: Enhancing the Security of Exchange 2000 for the Exchange Domain Servers Group, describes how to obtain and use the Microsoft Exchange 2000 script called EDSLock, which restricts access granted to the Exchange Domain Servers groups in a forest. Running the EDSLock script in a forest that includes a Cisco Unity server will cause Cisco Unity to malfunction.

When you install Cisco Unity after you run the EDSLock script, Cisco Unity works properly because the Cisco Unity Permissions wizard sets the permissions on the message store services account that are necessary to counteract the effects of the EDSLock script on Cisco Unity.

You will need to rerun the Permissions wizard to update the permissions on the message store services account when you:

Run the EDSLock script after you install Cisco Unity.

Add an Exchange 2000 server to the forest and home mailboxes for Cisco Unity subscribers on that server.

Add a mailstore to an Exchange 2000 server and home mailboxes for Cisco Unity subscribers in that mailstore.

For more information, refer to the tech tip Cisco Unity Malfunctions After Running Exchange 2000 EDSLock Script at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_tech_note09186a00801463f3.shtml. For information on the permissions set by the Cisco Unity Permissions wizard, refer to Permissions wizard Help.

Cisco Unity Phone Conversation System Prompts

System prompts are standard recordings that come with the Cisco Unity system, and they cannot be changed by using the Cisco Unity Administrator, the Cisco Unity Assistant, or the phone conversation. System prompts are played in different combinations in multiple places in the phone conversation. All system prompts are located in the CommServer\Localize\Prompts directory and subdirectories.

Do not delete system prompts, as this can cause system errors.

Customizing system prompts is not supported. All system prompts are automatically deleted and replaced whenever you upgrade Cisco Unity, including maintenance upgrades.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Setting to Exclude All Receipts Respected

In Cisco Unity version 4.0(3) Service Release 1, you could use the Conversation—Exclude All Receipts from Voice Mail Stack setting in the Advanced Settings Tool to change the Cisco Unity conversation so that nondelivery receipts (NDRs) and return receipts were excluded from the list of messages that Cisco Unity played for subscribers checking messages by phone. After an upgrade to Cisco Unity version 4.0(4) however, the value for the setting was ignored. With Cisco Unity version 4.1(1), the setting is again respected.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: ViewMail for Outlook No Longer Controlled by Class of Service in Cisco Unity Version 4.(x)

When upgrading a Cisco Unity 3.x system to version 4.(x), subscribers are no longer required to have special class-of-service privileges to use Cisco Unity ViewMail for Microsoft Outlook. Any subscriber who has ViewMail installed can use it.

Customized Keypad Mapping Must Be Restored After Upgrading to Cisco Unity 4.1(1) from Cisco Unity 4.0(5)

If you used the Custom Key Map utility to create a custom conversation in Cisco Unity version 4.0(5), your custom key mapping is not preserved during an upgrade to version 4.1(1). To restore your custom key mapping, do the following procedure.

To Restore a Custom Key Map After Upgrading to Cisco Unity 4.1(1)


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server desktop, double-click the Cisco Unity Tools Depot icon.

Step 2 In the left pane, under Administrative Tools, double-click Custom Key Map.

Step 3 On the File menu, click Restore Backed Up Conversation Scripts.


Example Subscriber Account Is No Longer Created During Installation of Cisco Unity Version 4.0(3) and Later

In earlier versions of Cisco Unity, the Example Subscriber account was created during installation to provide an example configuration for subscriber accounts. Beginning with Cisco Unity version 4.0(3), the Example Subscriber account is no longer created, though it is not deleted when you upgrade from an earlier version of Cisco Unity.

Upgrade Effect on Diagnostic Traces and the Intel Dialogic Quiet Parameter

Diagnostic traces that were set before an upgrade are not preserved and must be reset after the upgrade.

The Intel Dialogic quiet parameter is preserved in an upgrade only if the voice card software is not reinstalled from the Cisco Unity Installation and Configuration Assistant. If the Install Voice Card Software check box is checked in the Cisco Unity Setup program, the quiet parameter will be lost and must be reset after the upgrade.

Upgrade from Cisco Unity 2.x to Version 4.1(1) May Require Upgrade to Version 4.0(4) First

The "Upgrading a Cisco Unity 2.x System to the Shipping Version" chapter of the Cisco Unity Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide implies that you can upgrade directly from Cisco Unity 2.x to Cisco Unity 4.1(1). However, if you are upgrading from Cisco Unity 2.x and you want to export subscriber data from Cisco Unity 2.x and import it into Cisco Unity 4.x, you must:

1. Upgrade to Cisco Unity 4.0(4) and import the data as documented in the "Upgrading a Cisco Unity 2.x System to the Shipping Version" chapter.

Cisco Unity4.0(4) is available on the Cisco Unity Archives download page at http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/unity-archives.

2. Upgrade to Cisco Unity 4.1(1) as documented in the "Upgrading Cisco Unity 4.x Software to the Shipping Version" chapter of the Cisco Unity Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide.

The application that imports data from Cisco Unity version 2.x works correctly only through version 4.0(4).

If you want to upgrade without exporting subscriber data from Cisco Unity 2.x, you can follow the documentation in the "Upgrading a Cisco Unity 2.x System to the Shipping Version" chapter to upgrade directly to Cisco Unity 4.1.

The Cisco Unity Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/rug/ex/index.htm.

Upgrade from Cisco Unity 4.0(2) or Earlier to Version 4.1(1) Requires Reactivation of Optional Conversation 1

When you upgrade from Cisco Unity version 4.0(2) or earlier, the standard conversation is automatically activated for all subscribers. Therefore, you will need to reactivate Optional Conversation 1 after an upgrade (including maintenance-release upgrades).

To do so, use either the Conversation settings on the template and subscriber pages in the Cisco Unity Administrator or the Bulk Edit utility to select the conversation style for individual subscribers or for a particular group of subscribers. In releases earlier than Cisco Unity 4.0(3), you could specify only a single conversation style for all subscribers associated with a Cisco Unity server by using the Advanced Settings Tool to change the registry.

For information on specifying this and other conversation settings in the Cisco Unity Administrator, refer to the "Subscriber Template Conversation Settings" section in the "Subscriber Template Settings" chapter and the "Subscriber Conversation Settings" section in the "Subscriber Settings" chapter of the Cisco Unity System Administration Guide, Release 4.0(5). (The Domino version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/sag/sag405/dom/index.htm. The Exchange version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/sag/sag405/ex/index.htm.)

For information on specifying this and other conversation settings in the Bulk Edit utility, refer to Bulk Edit Help.

Upgrades from Cisco Unity Versions Earlier Than 2.3(4.104) Are Not Supported

The Cisco Unity Database Export and Database Import utilities, which let you export subscriber and other information from a 2.x system and import it into a 4.0(x) system, do not work on a Cisco Unity system earlier than version 2.3(4.104). You must install Cisco Unity 4.0(x) as a new system, and all Cisco Unity data from the old system is lost.

Limitations and Restrictions

Cisco Unity 4.1(1) Is Available Only in U.S. English

Upgrades to version 4.1(1) from localized versions of Cisco Unity are not supported because version 4.1(1) is available only in U.S. English (ENU). All other languages, including TTY English (ENX), are not available for use with Cisco Unity version 4.1(1).

Cisco Unity Conversation: Delay When Subscribers Press 00 to Switch Search Modes

When subscribers press 00 to switch search modes, they will experience a delay before Cisco Unity responds accordingly. To avoid the delay, subscribers can press ## instead of 00. Alternatively, you can reduce the amount of time that Cisco Unity waits for key presses so that subscribers do not experience the delay.

Reducing the amount of time that Cisco Unity waits for more key presses can eliminate the delay when subscribers press 00 to switch search modes, but the change may adversely affect how subscribers interact with the Cisco Unity conversation when they do other tasks. For this reason, we recommend that you reduce the value specified for the How Long Cisco Unity Waits For Additional Key Presses After Subscriber Has Pressed a Key field (also known as the Interdigit Timeout setting) only for individual subscribers who are likely to use 00, rather than for all subscribers associated with a Cisco Unity server.

The How Long Cisco Unity Waits For Additional Key Presses After Subscriber Has Pressed a Key field is on the Conversation pages for individual subscribers in the Cisco Unity Administrator. By default, Cisco Unity waits 3000 milliseconds for additional key presses before it acts.

Cisco Unity Conversation: Unexpected Behavior in Message Playback Help

When a subscriber presses certain keys as Cisco Unity plays the Message Playback Help menu, Cisco Unity may not behave as the subscriber expects. For example, for the keys assigned to the menu options that offer speed and volume control, allow the subscriber to move forward or back within a message, and to pause playback, Cisco Unity plays the After Message menu. This is by design.

Cisco Unity with Exchange: Private Secure Messaging

For limitations of the private secure messaging feature, refer to the "Limitations of Private Secure Messaging" section of the "Securing Subscriber Messages" chapter in the Cisco Unity Security Guide, Release 4.x.

The Exchange version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/usg/ex/index.htm. The Domino version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/usg/dom/index.htm.

PIMG Integrations Over a WAN That Use the G.729a Codec Must Disable Comfort Noise

When Cisco Unity has a single integration with a circuit-switched phone system through PIMG units over a WAN and you use the G.729a codec for the system, you must disable comfort noise. Otherwise, callers will hear loud comfort noise after pressing a DTMF key or between prompts when recording a message.

Note that when Cisco Unity has a dual phone system integration with Cisco CallManager and with a circuit-switched phone system through PIMG units over a WAN, you must use the G.711 Mu-Law codec for the system. Otherwise, the dual phone system integration will not function correctly.

To Disable Comfort Noise


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, on the Start menu, click Run.

Step 2 In the Run dialog box, enter regedit and click OK.


Caution Changing the wrong registry key or entering an incorrect value can cause the server to malfunction. Before you edit the registry, confirm that you know how to restore it if a problem occurs. (Refer to the "Restoring" topics in Registry Editor Help.) Note that for a Cisco Unity failover system, registry changes on one Cisco Unity server must be made manually on the other Cisco Unity server, because registry changes are not replicated. If you have any questions about changing registry key settings, contact Cisco TAC.

Step 3 If you do not have a current backup of the registry, save the registry settings to a file by doing the following depending on the Windows version:

Windows 2003

Click File > Export.

Other versions

Click Registry > Export Registry File.


Step 4 Expand the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Avaudio\Parameters
and double-click the ComfortNoise value in the right pane.

Step 5 In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, under Base, click Decimal.

Step 6 In the Value Date field, enter 128.

Step 7 Click OK.

Step 8 Exit the Registry Editor.

Step 9 Restart the Cisco Unity server.

Step 10 If you are using failover, repeat this procedure to apply the registry setting to the secondary Cisco Unity server.


Replacing Disks in a RAID

For any server in a Cisco Unity system (the Cisco Unity server, a failover server, a Cisco Unity Bridge server, a message store server, or a dedicated DC/GC), Cisco Unity supports only replacing a defective disk in a RAID with a blank disk to repair the RAID. Replacing disks in a RAID for any other reason is not supported.


Caution Do not replace a disk in a RAID with a disk that contains data, even if the replacement disk was originally a disk in the same RAID in the same server.

System Transfers Not Included in Transfer Call Billing Reports

The Transfer Call Billing reports available in the Cisco Unity Administrator do not contain data on system transfers made by outside callers and subscribers.

Text to Speech Does Not Read Name in the From Field in E-mail

By design, when subscribers listen to their e-mail messages by using the Cisco Unity phone conversation, the text-to-speech (TTS) feature does not read the name in the From field. Thus, if the message is from someone who is not a Cisco Unity subscriber, the Cisco Unity conversation does not indicate who sent the message. When a message is from a Cisco Unity subscriber, the conversation plays the name (if one is recorded) or extension for that subscriber.

The design allows better TTS performance, and has worked as described since Cisco Unity 2.4(6). For more information, refer to caveat CSCdx95644. (If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can use Bug Toolkit to find caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Toolkit is available at the website http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl.)

Web Pages That Contain the Media Master Control Bar Do Not Load Properly When Google Desktop Search Is Installed

When Google Desktop Search is installed on a subscriber workstation that uses Windows XP, the pages of the Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (PCA) and the Cisco Unity Administrator do not load properly in the browser.

For more information, refer to the "Web Pages That Contain the Media Master Control Bar Do Not Load Properly When Google Desktop Search Is Installed" section in the "Cisco Unity Troubleshooting Guide" chapter of the Cisco Unity Documentation Addendum, Release 4.1 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity41/add/index.htm.

Windows Application Event Log May Not Display Third-Party Product Name in Start-Up Log Entry

When Cisco Unity starts, an Event log entry is created with the version number of installed third-party software. Cisco Unity provides the product name to supplement the version number in the Event log entry. If support for a new version of a product (for example, a service pack) begins between releases of Cisco Unity, however, the Event log entry will not include the product name of the software. Because the information about the new version of the third-party software does not exist in its database, Cisco Unity cannot add the product name to the Event log entry.

Windows Terminal Services

Using Windows Terminal Services on a Cisco Unity 4.x server for the following functions is not supported:

Installing or upgrading Cisco Unity.

Setting the dB level of recorded names and greetings by using the Set Volume utility.

Converting recorded names and greetings to a different codec by using the Set Wav Format utility.

Using Windows Terminal Services in console mode, which is available through the /console command line parameter.

Using Windows Terminal Services on subscriber workstations for the recording and playback of messages by using ViewMail for Outlook is not supported.

Caveats

This section describes Severity 1, 2, and select Severity 3 caveats.

If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can use Bug Toolkit to find more information on the caveats in this section, in addition to caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Toolkit is available at the website http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/Support/Bugtool/launch_bugtool.pl.

Note that this section contains caveat information for Cisco Unity Release 4.1(1) only. Refer to the release notes of the applicable version for caveat information for earlier versions of Cisco Unity.

3

conversations

Unknown callers receive failsafe and identified callers messages disappear.

Symptom: There is inconsistency in the way we handle some errors in the conversations. No NDR is received by subscriber attempting to leave a message for subscriber without an Exchange mailbox. Also, the error logged in the event log states: "This message has the following recipients: {}..."

There is no workaround.

CSCdz78721

conversations

Reply to message that is resent by NDR RESEND option fails. Symptom: Replying to a message that was resent from another subscriber through non-delivery receipt's RESEND option via Telephone User Interface fails and Cisco Unity plays failsafe conversations.

Condition: This defect exists in Cisco Unity.

There is no workaround.

CSCea01229

core

Conversation base logs 2 event logs for circular reference in handlers. Symptom: We get AvConvMsg_MC error in the event log.

Conditions: If a call handler is pointing to itself, then we log 2 event log errors (10020 and 10016) from AvConvMsg_MC. The second event log error message is for failsafe.

Workaround

1.RunDbwalker utility to find out the problem. And follow the link.

2.Find out call handler from the event log. Make sure that in its after greeting action, it is not pointing to itself.

CSCea62478

setup

Configuration Wizard fails on secondary after Exchange migration.

Symptom: Configuration Setup (Unity setup part 2) fails after asking which account to use for the System Administrator (SA). The failure indicated that it: Failed to reassign the installer's account to the current user.

Condition: This was seen with Cisco Unity 3.1(5) configured for failover. The failure only occurred on the Secondary server. Also, the Unity servers were recently reconfigured (migrated) from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000.

Workaround

Open SQL and look in the subscriber's table. Note the SubscriberObjectID of the Installer account. Open the registry and look under HKLM\Software\Active Voice\Commserver Setup\1.0\Properties\InstallerObjectID If the two IDs are the same, then you aren't seeing the same defect. If the two IDs are different, make a backup copy of your registry. Copy the Installer account's SubscriberObjectID in SQL. Paste that entry into the InstallerObjectID field in the registry. Run Configuration Wizard again.

setup

Unity Install: sysconfig check selects incorrect domain tree.

Condition: Unity 4.0 Installation can fail during Message Store setup in environments where there are multiple AD Domains/Trees, and the first domain/tree is not the domain in which the Unity server has been granted membership in the Exchange Servers Admin group. Symptom: Message store install fails with message that Local Machine is not a member of the Domain Exchange Servers Admin group.

Workaround

Call TAC and request to receive a revised syscheck XML application that skips this check and proceeds with the install.

CSCeb41201

statusmonitor

Dom: Cannot restart Unity using Web Status Monitor.

Symptom: After stopping Unity with the Tray Icon or with the Web Status Monitor, Unity will not startup when using the Web Status Monitor or the Tray Icon.

Conditions: This is seen in Cisco Unity 4.0(3) and 4.0(4) with Lotus Domino as the messaging partner. Unity fails to start because AvCsGateway is left started (this is current expected behavior).

Workaround

Open a DOS Command Window. Browse to the \CommServer directory. Right-click on the AvCsTrayStatus icon and select "Exit," and type "kill av*." Open the Services applet and verify that all Unity services are stopped. Go to the Start menu and open Programs->Startup->AvCsTrayStatus Right-click on the AvCsTrayStatus icon and select "Start Unity."

CSCeb44165

3

conversations

SubSignIn conversation should prevent infinite loops.

Symptom: One or more voice ports are locked in a busy state and show SubSignIn state in the status monitor.

Conditions: Occasionally Unity may not receive positive disconnect signaling from the phone system even when the original caller is no longer on the call. In this case the Unity conversation will continue without user input. In most cases, the conversation will eventually reach a hang-up termination point. However this may not happen if a routing rule has been created to direct calls to the SubSignIn conversation. Instead the call will continually be re-routed back to the SubSignIn. Ports stuck in the SubSignIn conversation infinite loop can be reset using the port reset button on the status monitor.

Workaround

Instead of using a Routing Rule, create a Call Handler and assign it the ID of the extension the calls are forwarding from, set transfer to no, set the greeting to blank, and set the action after greeting to go to sign in. This will accomplish the same thing as the routing rule. The first thing callers will hear that are forwarding to this Call Handler is "Please enter your ID" the only difference is that by sending the caller through the call handler, Cisco Unity will keep track of how many times the call loops through the Call Handler, and once the call has looped through the Call Handler 25 times, Cisco Unity will play the Failsafe prompt, log and error to the application event log, and hang up.

reports

Reports are failing.

Symptom: All Unity reports fail to complete successfully. Information similar to the failure below is seen in the reports diagnostic files. 14:50:38:772 **NOT FORMATTED**,AvDiagnostics_MC,20004,3940,-1,,-1,-1,1,RUNREP,0x80004005 14:50:38:773 (CiscoUnity_RepMgr,20004,-1,-1) [Thread 3940] Error in Report Manager while running report with ReportID:1, during RUNREP, error code 0x80004005

Condition: This problem may occur on Unity 3.x and Unity 4.x

There is no workaround.

pca

CiscoPCA: Page cannot be displayed error after upgrade.

Symptom: After a Cisco Unity upgrade, the CiscoPCA is inaccessible. Users receive an error that the page cannot be displayed.

Condition: This may be seen after Cisco Unity has been upgraded from any version to Cisco Unity 4.0(3).

Workaround

Often the culprit is a failed SSL Certificates publication. This can be verified by launching the IIS Manager window, browsing to the Default Website and selecting its properties. Once the properties window opens, go to the Directory Security tab and select the View Certificate button in the lower option pane. This open a window showing the current site certificate information. An little key icon should be visible in the lower part of the text area close to a sentence that says "You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate." If this does not appear the certificate publication failed. You have to: 1- disable ssl for the jakarta virtual folder; 2- remove the certificate from the Default Website; 3- Delete the certificate request file and any pending request in the Certificate Manager service; 3- restart the w3svc service. and optionally 4- create a new certificate. After installing a new certificate the you can re-apply the SSL requirements on the jakarta virtual folder and restart the w3svc service. If the SSL certificate is not the cause of the issue try this work around: Enter the URL as such, specifying the port: http://<servername>:8080/ciscopca

Unhandled exception handler event log is not useful or accurate.

Symptom: An unhanded exception in Unity will generate an event log entry like the following examples: Event Type: Error Event Source: CiscoUnity_AvCs Event Category: None Event ID: 100 Date: 7/9/2003 Time: 3:37:56 PM User: N/A Computer: SERVERNAME Description: Exception occurred and handled.

Conditions: Unknown. These error messages do not reflect the actual point of failure, nor do they report the correct line number.

There is no workaround.

Note that these errors may not be fatal, and may be expected. An example of this would be message store connectivity. If a message store (Exchange or Domino) is taken down for maintenance (or some other known reason) while a subscriber is using Unity (or Unity is performing some background function such as MWI), Unity may have data for the message store session that would become invalid (since the message store is not available). This may cause an exception. In this case, the UMR component would correctly handle the situation and the error message would be an expected and non-fatal side-effect.

core

Unity gives no warning when CommServer dir is write protected. Symptom: The Unity SA, PCA, or almost any other Unity feature, does not work in certain contexts while it may work in other contexts. An attempt is made to gather Unity diagnostics, but the diagnostics are either completely missing/empty or are extremely sparse.

Conditions: Some diagnostics may be present, but others not, depending on the component and the context. Files and directories in the Unity Commserver directory have permissions that cause diagnostic failures in some contexts.

Workaround

In the Properties > Security tab for the Commserver directory, check that Full Control is set for Everyone. Note, however, that the problem may be more complex, in that a single file in the Commserver directory may have specific rights set, and may be marked to not inherit permissions from its parent. To force the permissions for all files, in the Advanced section under the Security tab, select Reset permissions on all child objects and enable propagation of inheritable permissions. Further Problem Description: This defect addresses the issue that Unity itself does not handle error conditions caused by permission issues in the Commserver directory. Defect CSCeh03050 is meant to cover the lack of a document that specifies what permissions are required, and what permission settings are supported, especially for diagnostic/logging features.

utilities

Permissions Wizard does not handle distribution list rights in a multi-domain configuration.

When the Cisco Unity system is configured with Digital Networking, distribution lists must be equally owned by each Cisco Unity server in the network. Because distribution lists are shared in this way, the Directory Services Account for each Cisco Unity server must have rights to each Distribution Group in the entire Active Directory forest. Otherwise, the setup syncher will fail and distribution list administration that uses the Cisco Unity Administrator or the Cisco Unity Bulk Import wizard will fail.

Workaround

Using Active Directory Users and Computers, grant the following rights to the Unity Directory Services account on each organizational unit in the forest that contains a Cisco Unity-enabled distribution group: read properties on group objects, write properties on group objects, and list contents on group objects:

1. Go to Start >Programs >Administrative Tools >Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. Click View >Advanced Features.

3. Right-click <Organizational unit>, and click Properties.

4. Click the Security tab.

5. Click Advanced.

Unity Logon silence perfmon counter displays incorrect values.

Symptom: The Logon silence Perfmon counter may show long delays in Performance monitor while Cisco Unity subscribers access their voice mailbox.

Condition: This occurs in Cisco Unity version 4.X when subscribers access their mailbox. Long delays in logons (greater than 4-5 seconds) are normally attributed to performance degradation in Cisco Unity operation. A Unity server with subscribers whose passwords are expired can also result in a large value for this performance counter. This is not a sign of performance degradation but rather a symptom of this counter measuring the time it takes for subscribers to change passwords.

There is no workaround.

MailboxStoreObjectID out of synch in Unity DB.

Symptom: Subscribers receive the failsafe conversation when trying to retrieve messages. In addition, a few subscribers may not be able to address a message to other subscribers.

Condition: The problem can happen if the SQL database on the Cisco Unity server and the directory are not in synch. Specifically, the MailboxStoreObjectID for the affected subscriber might not be present in the MailboxStore table in the UnityDb database in SQL.

Workaround

Initiate a complete directory synch by doing the following 1. On the Cisco Unity server, browse to the <Cisco Unity Path>\CommServerTechTools directory. 2. Double-click DohPropTest.exe. 3. In the Logon dialog box, click OK without entering a password. 4. In Password Check message box, click Ignore, which starts DohPropTest in read-only mode. 5. Click AD Monitor or Ex55 Monitor, as appropriate for your installation. 6. On the Directory Monitor dialog box, click TotalResync. 7. Exit DohPropTest.

SA: PDLs imported across domains do not contain all members.

Symptom: After importing PDL's from various domains into Unity, some PDL's (depending on the domain they were imported from) are missing members from some other domains.

Conditions: This occurs when importing AD distribution lists from a separate domain (not the domain that Unity is homed in) into Unity.

In my scenario, there is a parent, child, and peer domain, and there are distribution lists in each of the domains. Each distribution list contains users from each of the domains. So, the parent domain PDL contains users from the parent, child and peer domains. And so on. If a PDL is imported from the parent or peer domain into the parent domain Unity, the child domain members don't show up in the imported Unity PDL. The only PDL's that contain the child domain members after import are those imported from the child domain.

Workaround

Create the Public Distribution List with the desired subscribers on the child domain Then import the PDL via SA Web Wait for the GC and DC to replicate and then wait another 15 minutes for Unity to replicate You can force the replication via DohPropTest (AD Monitor | Resync Now) and (GC Monitor | Resync Now)

Dom CUBI: SHORT_NAME mean different things based on CUBI mode. Symptom: When using the bulk import tool (CUBI) for Lotus Domino, no users are found when running CUBI in CSV modify mode.

Condition: This can occur with CUBI released with Cisco Unity 4.0(4) and higher when modifying users in Lotus Domino via a CSV file.

Workaround

The SHORT_NAME column in the CSV file should contain user names, not short names. Replace the short name data for each user in the SHORT_NAME column with their Domino user name. For example: SHORT_NAME TUser APerson would become: SHORT_NAME Test User/MyCert A Person/QA/MyCert

Unity doesn't start if store up on partner server but MBX logon fails.

Symptom: Unity fails to start. The following is logged to the application log and then there is a delay of ~12 minutes. Source: CiscoUnity_AvWM Category: Startup Enevt ID: 29000 The server monitor thread has started. (AvCsMgr:2840) For more information, click: http://www.CiscoUnitySupport.com/find.php After the delay several errors will follow including: Source: CiscoUnity_Doh Category: Error Enevt ID: 32013 Doh logon failed due to messaging component logon error: 8004052eH For more information, click: http://www.CiscoUnitySupport.com/find.php Description: Starting with 4.0(3), Unity tries to get a MAL at startup again. During startup AvWM begins to monitor the partner Exchange server. If the partner Exchange server is down Unity will fail to get the MAL but it will be able to get the DOH and continue with the startup process. If the AvWM determines the store on the partner Exchange server is up Unity will try to complete a logon to the Unity_<server name> mailbox. If that logon cannot complete, Unity will fail to get the MAL and DOH which results in Unity failing to start. One possible cause for logons failing is that Exchange is not able to contact a GC. Expected functionality is for Unity to not get the MAL until an actually phone call in the system requires it. By then Unity will be up and taking calls.

Workaround

Ensure that partner Exchange server is able to process MAPI logons.

sa

SA import screen goes blank if DC used by AvDSAD is unavailable.

Symptom: A search for subscribers to import for a specific domain in the SA turns white after ~1 minute and no error message is displayed.

Condition: This defect notes the fact that no error message is displayed although the SA does know an error occurred. Ideally the SA would return the error code and decode it as well. The symptom could occur if the DC stored in the registry for the domain is down. This can be confirmed by turning on the AvSaDbConn traces in the Unity Diagnostic Tool. If the DC for the domain is down the following error will be presented: Error initializing Notes thread: ERROR: spIDCAD->GetNonSubscriberObjectList (bstrDomain bstrFilter bstrSort lMaxValues m_spNewImportSubIter.put() failed: 8007203a Error 8007203a decodes to: The server is not operational. If a different error code is present, the last four digits can be converted to decimal using a calculator. For example 203a converts to 8250. Then from command on the Unity server type net helpmsg <decimal code> and get the decoded message.

Workaround

There is no workaround that will cause the SA to present the admin with an error message. If the DC is down and will continue to be down the value can be updated in the registry using the following steps: 1. Log on to the Cisco Unity server by using an account with rights to modify the registry. 2. Stop the service AvDSAD. 3. Start Regedit. 4. If you do not have a current backup of the registry, click Registry > Export Registry File, and save the registry settings to a file. 5. Expand the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Active Voice\Directory Connectors\DirSynchAD\1.00 \Domains and expand the domain in question. 6. Change the DefaultDomainController value to the FQDN of a known working DC. 7. Start the service AvDSAD service. 8. Close Regedit. 9. On the Cisco Unity server, browse to the location where Cisco Unity is installed (the default is C:\CommServer), and then browse to the TechTools folder. 10. Run DohPropTest.exe. 11. Type the password and click OK. 12. Click on the AD Monitor button, and then click TotalResynch. 13. Click on the GC Monitor button, and then click TotalResynch. 14.

Unity message submit fails with valid address.

Symptom: The Cisco Unity server may reach a state where it stops accepting valid subscribers when addressing a message. Once Cisco Unity reaches this state, any attempt to address and send a message will fail and the conversation will always respond with, "This message has no address." Condition: This occurs in Cisco Unity 4.0(3) and Cisco Unity 4.0(4) but may appear in earlier versions. The problem occurs an error occurs while addressing a message.

Message delivery fails when a Cisco Unity 4.0(2) or earlier system is upgraded to 4.0(3) or later, and the partner Exchange server is changed from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003.

For Cisco Unity 4.0(2) and earlier, when the partner Exchange server is running Exchange 2000, Permissions Wizard adds the message store services account to the Exchange Domain Servers group. Having the message store services account be a member of the Exchange Domain Servers group when the partner Exchange server is running Exchange 2003 causes message delivery to fail.

When upgrading from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003, you need to run Permissions Wizard for Cisco Unity to function properly with Exchange 2003 Service Pack 1, and Service Pack 1 is required. It would be useful if Permissions Wizard could detect that the message store services account is a member of the Exchange Domain Servers group, caution the installer that this is the case, and maybe even remove the account from that group automatically.

Workaround

Manually remove the message store services account from the Exchange Domain Servers group, and restart Unity.

failover

The failover configuration wizard does not check for share permissions. Stream files (personal greetings, and so on) replication from the primary server to the secondary server fails. Rerunning the failover configuration wizard will fail too.

Conditions: Cisco Unity failover 3.1.5 In a working failover system, if you go in the secondary (or failover) server and changes the share permissions or delete the account that has full control share permissions on \\commserver\streamfiles, the replication for the stream files (personal greetings, and so on) will fail. The failover configuration wizard only checks to see the existence of the shares and not the actual permissions on the shares so rerunning failover configuration wizard will not give FULL Control to the appropriate account for replication to continue.

Workaround

Remove the share \\commserver\streamfiles on the secondary (failover) server and re-run the failover configuration wizard. The failover configuration wizard then recreates the share with the sharing permissions set to the account that we ran the failover configuration wizard with. The folders that have the Cisco Unity message store service account listed as FULL Control on Sharing permissions are \\comserver\streamfiles, \\commserver\snapshot, \\commserver\support, \\commserver\UnityMTA.

Ex55 Monitor fails to synch SID History.

Symptom: Web client applications, such as the PCA, can fail to authenticate users who have a SID History.

Conditions: Unity partners with Exchange 5.5, and the domain has been upgraded from NT to Windows 2000. Unity subscribers existing from before the domain upgrade will have a SID History in AD, but Exchange 5.5 will only store the original NT SID. Because Unity's Exchange 5.5 directory monitor only synchs with Exchange 5.5 properties, the directory monitor will not fill in the SQL SID history table. When a web client application authenticates one of these old Unity subscribers, it will be checking against the current AD SID, and comparing it to the old NT SID, so it won't be able to authenticate the user.

Workaround

Using SQL Query Analyzer, it should be possible to manually fill in the SID History table in SQL, to let Unity know about the new AD SIDs for the migrated users. This kind of manual modification of a SQL table should only be attempted by someone who is very familiar with Unity's database schema.

SA creates an invalid private list after viewing list's SA page.

Symptom: When running DBWalker to check the Cisco Unity database, the following Warnings are generated: Private List ID=<number> 1381:(warning) Private list has a NULL display name. This can be fixed by selecting a display name for this list on the Private Lists page of this subscriber in the SA 1384:(warning) private list contains no members

Condition: Cisco Unity 4.0(5) and earlier, when using DBWalker to check the Cisco Unity database. These warnings occur if a subscriber owns a private list with no members and/or no display name. This condition can occur if a private list is accessed via the TUI, Cisco Unity Administrator (SA) or Unity Assistant (UA) and no further action taken on it. Workaround

This is not a serious condition. Private list records are created when a list is accessed. To stop the warnings from occurring have the subscriber either update the list display name and/or add members, or have the subscriber delete the list using the Unity Assistant.

Under certain conditions, Cisco Unity subscribers do not receive a non-delivery receipt (NDR) when a message to a remote VPIM voice messaging system cannot be delivered. This problem has been observed on Cisco Unity with Domino, release 4.0(5), when the Domino server that handles outbound SMTP messages cannot deliver the VPIM message to the remote voice messaging system. Typically, the problem is caused by one or more of the following:

The SMTP Domain Name on the VPIM delivery location is incorrect.

The SMTP Domain Name on the VPIM delivery location cannot be resolved because of a missing or incorrect DNS record, or if using HOSTS files, because of a missing or incorrect entry in the HOSTS file.

When the message delivery failure happens, Domino logs the message "Message <messageid#> contains no recipients." to the Domino console window (and Log.nsf) on the Domino server on which the Interop Gateway mail file is located.

Workaround

Determine the cause of the message delivery failure. For more information, refer to the following sections in the "VPIM Networking" chapter of the Networking in Cisco Unity Guide (with IBM Lotus Domino), Release 4.0(5):

"Determining the Domain Name"

"Resolving Names with IP Addresses"

The Cisco Unity CsDomInteropGty and AvCsMgr processes show a steady increase of Private Bytes during regular use. This occurs in Cisco Unity 4.0(5) with Domino when using the Interop Gateway to exchange messages with a remote voice messaging system using AMIS, Bridge, or VPIM Networking. The leak rate is linear to the number of messages that the Interop Gateway is processing, and occurs at approximately 250 bytes per message for the CsDomInteropGty service and at approximately 1KB per message for the AvCsMgr service.

Workaround

Restart the Cisco Unity server if the amount of Private Bytes being used by the CsDomInteropGty or AvCsMgr process begins to cause general system performance degradation.

Greeting is intermittently played as no audio or hum - one way audio.

Symptom: Cisco Call Manager integration. Occasionally a greeting is heard as blank - one way audio. The lack of audio continues for the length of the greeting. For internal calls, this is heard as a fairly loud hum. For external calls, this is heard as no audio at all. A netmon capture on Unity shows it plays as a hum all the time. While the problem is often heard as no audio, there appears to actually be garbage audio coming out of Unity which may be heard as no audio or a hum depending on any intermediate equipment.

Conditions: Traces indicate Unity incorrectly determines the format capabilities of the output audio device and thus plays the file in the wrong format. The Unity Call Manager TSP is answering the phone so fast that the codec/format of the call is not yet known, and it may default to the wrong format.

Workaround

In the switch INI file for the particular Call Manager integration, include the following setting: [Configuration] DelayBeforeOpening=1 This setting is the number of seconds to pause after answering the call and before playing any audio files. Since the audio format will be setup between Call Manager and the Unity TSP well within one second of the beginning of a call, one second delay is sufficient.

sa

Importing users in saweb, returns the wrong domain results.

Symptom: Importing users and distribution lists from the Unity System Administration Web interface will return incorrect results. When you select one domain name and enter your search criteria, the results will sometimes display the results in the correct domain. Sometimes the results will be displayed in the incorrect domain.

Conditions: You need to have an environment where you are running Unity 4.0.4 SR1. In addition, you have 3 or more Domains from which Unity can search for.

Workaround

To change the value, open DohPropTest, and press the GC Monitor button. Find the ADIDCDomainEnumTimeOut setting, and change it as desired, using the Set button to invoke the change. The units used are milliseconds, so the default value of 1000 is a one second timeout. There are a couple things to note about this approach, though. First, it will have the side effect that SA import searches will take extra time. Second, there is no sure way for now, other than trial and error, to determine just what the optimal value is for the timeout, i.e. a setting that will return all domains reliably every time, while minimizing the delay in searching.

telephony

MWI requests from Cisco Unity to Cisco CallManager intermittently fail.

This problem occurs when voice messaging ports are registered to the Publisher and phones are registered to a different Subscriber. This problem has been known to occur when Cisco CallManager is under heavy call volume. The root cause of this problem is a defect in Cisco CallManager. Refer to CSCsa73821.

Workaround

If possible, upgrade to a Cisco CallManager version that has the fix for CSCsa73821.

Alternatively, place a comma at the end of the MWI On and MWI Off codes in the UTIM application in Cisco Unity. Note that this workaround will add one second per comma to each MWI request.

DOM: SA reports an error when launched.

Symptom: When launching the SA it will fail to start and the following error will be displayed: Unrecognized error hr=0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG) From: global.asa -- Initialize() Please see your system administrator for more details

Conditions: Cisco Unity 4.0(4) for Domino no longer relies on the ShortName field found in the Document Properties of a user's mailfile in the Domino Directory. Now it relies on the FullName. On upgrades or new installs Cisco Unity does not populate the FullName field in the Document properties of a user's mailfile in the Domino directory for the Example Administrator, Example Subscriber - applies to upgrades to 4.0(4) and Unity Messaging account. Should someone modify any of these accounts from in the Domino directory the Alias field in the Subscriber table in SQL will be cleared on the next Domino directory sync cycle

Workaround

Open up the mailfile document of the Example Administrator, Example Subscriber and Unity Messaging and check and see if the ShortName field blank or populated for these accounts. For those accounts that it is blank populate the ShortName field with the same value as the FullName field. In addition verify the following settings for the Unity Messaging account: ObjectType = 1 SubscriberType = 0 IsSubscriber=0 ListInDirectory=0 Undeletable = 1 UID same as Alias if it is not set.

Conditions: The problem is seen when using Cisco Unity IPFax version 2.0.0.22, and when the Cisco Unity Fax Exchange mailbox has exceeded the size limit. When an incoming fax message is forwarded to a user, or an outbound fax message is forwarded to the gateway, the message is copied into the Sent Items folder. When the Cisco Unity Fax Exchange mailbox exceeds the size limit, the Cisco Unity Fax Exchange mailbox can not send or receive new messages.

Workarounds

Open Outlook for the Unity Fax mailbox and delete the messages in both the Sent Items and Deleted Items folders to reduce the mailbox size.

Increase the size limit for the Unity Fax Exchange mailbox.

Use the Cisco Unity Message Store Manager (MSM) found in the Tools Depot to configure automatic clean up of the Unity Fax mailbox. Note MSM only allows you to manage Exchange mailboxes that are associated with Cisco Unity subscribers, therefore you must import the fax mailbox into Cisco Unity, which consumes a user license. To avoid consuming a user license, you can use the Mailbox Manager tool provided by Microsoft. (Refer to Microsoft documentation for information and instructions on the tool.)

dommessaging

Inbound directory messages from the Cisco Unity Bridge server to Cisco Unity get stuck in the UOmni_<ServerName> mail file and the CsBridgeConnector service does not process the messages.

This problem has been observed on Cisco Unity 4.0(5) with Domino using Bridge Networking, when any nodes have been created on the Cisco Unity Bridge server before the corresponding delivery locations have been created on the Cisco Unity bridgehead server.

Workaround

Create the delivery locations on the Cisco Unity bridgehead server that correspond to all of the Octel Nodes that are configured on that Cisco Unity Bridge server where the directory messages are being sent from. For more information on creating delivery locations, refer to the Cisco Unity Bridge Networking Guide (with IBM Lotus Domino), Release 3.0(6), available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/bridge30/big/dom/index.htm.

Note that after you have created the delivery locations, the CsBridgeConnector service will still not process those messages that were queued in the UOmni_<ServerName> mail file and will instead delete the messages. The directory messages that were deleted will be sent again when the Bridge server sends the next directory message to Cisco Unity. Optionally, you can manually resync the directories on the Cisco Unity Bridge server and the Cisco Unity bridgehead server.

To resync the Cisco Unity subscriber data on the Cisco Unity Bridge:

1. In the Cisco Unity Administrator on the Cisco Unity bridgehead server, go to the Bridge Options > Synchronization page.

2. In the table that lists the Bridge server addresses, click the check box next to the value for which you just created locations, and click Synchronize.

To resync Octel subscriber data on the Cisco Unity bridgehead:

1. Double-click the Tools Depot icon on the Cisco Unity bridgehead server desktop.

2. Under Administration Tools, double-click Advanced Settings Tool.

3. In the list on the left, click Administration - Full synchronization of Bridge subscribers with Octel node directories.

4. In the New Value list, click 1 and then click Set.

Note that both of the resync options could take a significant amount of time to complete depending on the number of serial numbers and/or subscribers that need to be synchronized, so it is probably best to do the synchronization after hours so that the impact to the server during higher calling activity periods is kept to a minimum.

Unity Documentation for Fax Server Support is incorrect. Symptom: Unity documentation lists the following to be supported Fax Servers in Unity's 3rd Party Fax Configuration: Captaris RightFax, version 6 or later Esker FaxGate, version 7 FAXCOM for Exchange, version 6.19 or later Fenestrae FAXination, version 4 or later Interstar LightningFAX, version 5.5 or later Omtool Fax Sr., version 3 or later Optus FACSys, version 4.5 TopCall, all versions XMedius is NOT listed.

Conditions: Unity 4.0(x)

Workaround

XMedius is written in the latest version (1.0.11) of the 3rd Party Fax Configuration Utility, so it will work, however; this implementation is not TAC supported.

failover

When a Cisco Unity administrator deletes a subscriber object through the Cisco Unity Administrator on an active secondary server, the administrator receives a dialog stating "Substitute Objects have not yet been configured on this Unity Server. Deleting this subscriber, if it owns or is referenced by Call Handlers, Directory Handlers, or Restriction Tables, could cause database errors. You can either cancel the deletion and configure Substitute Objects or proceed with the deletion and run DBWalker to identify any database errors. Delete the subscriber?"

The administrator does not receive this error if a subscriber is deleted on an active primary server.

This problem occurs fresh installations and upgrades of Cisco Unity 4.0(5) when Cisco Unity is configured for failover. This problem is seen only on the secondary server.

Workarounds

For the first workaround, do the following.

1. Make the secondary server active.

2. Open the Cisco Unity Administrator on the secondary server and browse to the System > Configuration page.

3. At the bottom of the page, specify the substitute objects you want and click Save.

For the second workaround (only if secondary server is inactive), do the following.

1. Open the SQL Query Analyzer on the secondary server.

2. In the Object Browser, browse to UnityDb > Stored Procedures.

3. Right-click dbo.csp_SetupDefaultCleanDeleteObjects.

4. Select Script Object to New Window As.

5. Click Execute.

6. When another query window opens, run the query.

7. Verify the changes by going to the SA > System > Configuration page in the Cisco Unity Administrator.

failover

Failover: MWI can get out of synch.

Symptom: Subscriber MWI does not extinguish after checking and saving or deleting new messages.

Conditions: Seen with Cisco Unity 4.0(5) with failover and Microsoft Exchange message store. This is a timing issue with MWI status replication and when failover occurs. When a subscriber receives a new voicemail with the active Primary server, their MWI will light and the System Administration > Subscriber > Messages page will reflect the MWI status as on. If a failover to the Secondary occurs, the MWI status may still be reflected as "Pending On." Thus, when the subscriber calls into Secondary server to check messages and saves/deletes the new message, the MWI status may get out of synch. This will not happen if the Secondary's SA > Subscriber > Messages page is given time to know the MWI status is "On."

Workaround

The MWI will get resynched when a fail back to the Primary occurs. Or, issue an MWI resynch via UTIM or the SA > Subscriber > Messages page.

core

TRaP will not work with Lotus Notes and Windows XP SP2. Symptom: Subscribers receive an unspecified error when trying to use their telephone to record or playback (TRaP) voicemail messages using the Lotus Notes client with Lotus DUC csClient 1.2.2 installed.

Conditions: This is seen with Cisco Unity 4.x with Lotus Domino integration. This is seen if the subscriber's workstation is installed with Windows XP SP2 and Lotus Notes client with Lotus DUC csClient. This is seen if the subscriber uses their telephone to record and playback voice messages (TRaP).

Workaround

Either uninstall Windows XP SP2 on the subscriber machine, or use the microphone and speakers to record and playback voice messages. TRaP will work if users install Windows XP SP1. Another work around: Modify the following local security option: "DCOM: Machine Access Restrictions in Security Descriptor Definition Language (SDDL) Syntax" to allow remote access for ANONYMOUS_LOGON. See CSCef57086. Changing this setting restores the security setting to as it is for WIndows 2000. Further Problem Description: Windows XP SP2 locks down DCOM calls. DCOM is used for TRaP (telephone record and playback) calls made using the Lotus Notes client with DUC csClient installed.

setup

Third Party Faxes are not presented as faxes.

Symptom: Third Party Faxes are not presented as faxes in the conversation.

Conditions: Exchange is the message store. The Third Party Fax integration is changed after Cisco Unity subscribers have already been added and have used Unity. These subscribers will have their Exchange Cisco Search Folders setup to search for the prior (default) fax integration settings. Therefore, no faxes will be found in the conversation. Workaround

Presently, the only work-around is the manually delete the Cisco Search Folders in Exchange with a low-level tool such as mdbvu32. This is time-consuming, error-prone, and is not recommended. However, since search folders are rebuilt by default after 10 days, if you wait for 10 days the issue should resolve itself on its own.

import

CUBI: need to set contactrule.rule for TRANSFER_STRING.

Symptom: After using Cisco Unity Bulk Import (CUBI) to modify transfer extensions with the TRANSFER_STRING column of CSV file, the modified transfer extensions do not appear in the SA Subscriber > Call Transfer page for the subscribers as expected.

Condition: This can occur in Cisco Unity 4.0(5) and earlier, if the subscriber(s) being modified were previously configured for the Yes, ring subscriber's extension: option in the Transfer incoming calls to subscriber's phone? section of the Subscriber > Call Transfer page of the SA.

Workaround

First use BulkEdit to modify subscriber transfer extensions such that they are not set for transfer to their primary extension (in other words, so the Yes, ring subscriber at this number: option is selected in the Transfer incoming calls to subscriber's phone? section of the Subscriber > Call Transfer page of the SA.). Then use CUBI to modify the transfer extensions. 1. Run BulkEdit.exe from Cisco Unity Tools Depot. 2. Select the subscribers for which you want to update the transfer extension. 3. On the transfer tab, set Enable transfer to True, check the Append these digits to the left check box and enter 1 in the entry box on that line. 4. Run the process to update the subscribers. 5. Run CUBI, using the options to modify existing subscribers based on a CSV file. In the CSV file, specify the desired transfer extensions in the TRANSFER_STRING column.

database

SQL database failover replication has no default publication expiration. A Cisco Unity system with failover has larger than expected unitydb and unitydb_log database files. An estimated size for 1000 subscribers would be a unitydb of 100MB.

Conditions: Cisco Unity 4.0(x) with failover.

Workaround

1. Open SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

2. Expand the console root to Microsoft SQL Servers\SQL Server Group\<servername>\Replication \Publications.

3. Right-click UnityDbPublication, and click Properties.

4. On the General tab of the Publication Properties dialog box, click Subscriptions Expire and May be Dropped if Not Synchronized in the Following Number of Hours, in the Subscription Expiration section.

5. Enter 1440 in the field to the right.

Further Problem Description: MS SQL Server keeps records of conflicts that are resolved during replication in the conflict tables of the Cisco Unity database. If no expiration value is specified, the records of these conflicts may be unnecessarily retained indefinitely. This contributes to increased file sizes that may eventually exceed disk space.

Symptom: The Subscriber Message Active Report does not log an event if a subscriber sends a message to another subscriber while logged in to their mailbox. A event will only be generate if a subscriber calls another subscriber and is forwarded to voicemail. Expected behavior is that same event will be logged regardless of how you send the message via the TUI. Example: SubscriberA logs in to their own mailbox and sends a message to SubscriberB. There is no event in the subscriber message activity report for SubscriberB. A event will only be generate if SubscriberA calls the phone of SubscriberB and then is forwarded to voicemail. In that case there will be an event showing that SubscriberA level a message if the report for SubscriberB.

import

Bulk Import Exchange does not log errors, exchange hostname is missing.

Symptom: When we run the Bulk Import Exchange tool, the user is imported but when we find the user in SA Web, the Exchange server hostname is missing. There are no errors in the NT Application log or the Unity Traces. In addition, when logging into the subscriber account over the phone the caller hears failsafe, and the following error is logged to the event log: An unexpected error has occurred while a subscriber is on the phone with Unity. This can potentially result in the subscriber hearing the failsafe conversation. Technical details are - IAvDohMailUser::Get(AVP_MAIL_SERVER) returned [0x8004010f] on line 3734 of file e:\Views\cs_CU4.0.4.221\un_Conv1\Scripted\ ConvSub\SubSignIn.cpp. Importing this user from SA Web works fine.

Conditions: The Exchange Server is set to not allow inheritance. Thus the UnitySirSvc account does not have required permissions to successfully complete the import.

Workaround

To prevent this problem from occurring in the future: Launch Exchange System Manager Browse to the server they have the users' mailbox on. Right click on the server | Properties | Security See that inherit permissions from parent is off (check box at bottom) Either allow inherited permissions, or manually add the UnityDirSvc account and give it full permissions and deny for the Receive As and the Send As permissions. To fix up any users that were impacted by this problem, simply delete the subscriber using the SA, and then reimport the subscriber.

ce

Alternate greeting notices are not received by the message sender as expected when sending voice messages to a public distribution list. Alternate greeting notices are received by the sender if subscribers who have their alternate greetings enabled are addressed individually, but not if a public distribution list which they are a member of is addressed.

Conditions: This can occur in Cisco Unity 4.1(1) and later, with the Alternate Greeting Notices feature enabled. This can occur if the public distribution list was created via the Unity System Administrator or if it was created using Active Directory Users & Computers and the 'Send out-of-office messages to originator' option was not selected.

Workaround

Regardless of how the distribution list was originally created, Active Directory Users & Computers can be used to modify the distribution list so alternate greeting notices are generated. On the properties of the public distribution list, go to the Exchange Advanced tab, select the 'Send out-of-office messages to originator' option, and save the list. Now voice messages sent to public distribution lists will result in alternate greeting notices to the sender. This needs to be done on each public distribution list where this is the desired behavior.

Scope DL's with over 1000 members fail to sync. Symptom: Users can not be found in a Directory Call Handler in which the Search Scope is set to a Distribution List with more than 1000 members.

Conditions: If a scoped DL contains over 1000 members, or a nested DL within the Scoped DL contains over 1000 members, only the first 1000 members are returned from Active Directory. So you can have a Scoped DL with nested DL's under it as long as there are not more than 1000 members under the member of tab on any distribution list within the Scoped DL all is fine. For example if you had a Scope DL called "Seattle Employees" with only two members which are DL's, say "QA Engineers" and "Development Engineers" and lets say QA Engineers had 1005 members and Development Engineers had 2010 members, only the first 1000 from the "QA Engineers" DL would get synched, and only the first 1000 members from the "Development Engineers" DL would get synched.

With g.729 the packet preceding the CN packet is not always transmitted.

Symptom: With g.729, the packet immediately preceding the comfort noise packet is not always transmitted. After careful review of audio captures on calls missing some of these preceding packets it does not appear that this causes audio quality problems. However, network monitoring applications such as a sniffer will detect this packet loss and flag it as a problem. IP Phone will also report back to CallManager that packets were lost during the call.

Conditions: This only appears to happen only with g.729 and is known to occur with TSP 7.0(4b) and 8.0(1b). It is likely that all TSP versions have this issue.

Workaround

Disable Unity comfort noise generation. 1. Start Regedit. Caution: Changing the wrong registry key or entering an incorrect value can cause the server to malfunction. Before you edit the registry, confirm that you know how to restore it if a problem occurs. (Refer to the "Restoring" topics in Registry Editor Help.) Note that for a Cisco Unity failover system, registry changes on one Cisco Unity server must be made manually on the other Cisco Unity server, because registry changes are not replicated. If you have any questions about changing registry key settings, contact Cisco TAC. 2. If you do not have a current backup of the registry, click Registry > Export Registry File, and save the registry settings to a file. 3. Expand the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Avaudio\Parameters and choose to modify the value ComfortNoise. 4. In the Edit Dword Value window, click Decimal. 5.

The problem is "No inbound SMTP mail flow to Exchange 2000 Server" The Sniffer traces would look like: Unsuccessful: Intuity to Unity 1 from Intuity to Unity: 3159 > SMTP (SYN) 2 from Unity to Intuity: SMTP > 3159 (SYN, ACK) 3 from Intuity to Unity: 3159 > SMTP (ACK) 4 from Unity to Intuity: SMTP > SMTP (FIN, ACK) 5 from Intuity to Unity: 3159 > SMTP (ACK) 6 from Intuity to Unity: Command Quit Successful (Unity to Intuity) 7 from Unity to Intuity: SMTP > 3159 (RST) 8 from Unity to Intuity: 36542 > SMTP (SYN) 9 from Intuity to Unity: SMTP > 36542 (SYN, ACK) 10 from Unity to Intuity: 36542 > SMTP (ACK) 11 from Intuity to Unity: SMTP Response: 220 domain SMTP service ready 12 from Unity to Intuity: Command: EHLO host name.domain 13 from Intuity to Unity: SMTP > 36542 (ACK) 14 from Intuity to Unity: SMTP > Response: 250- host.domain says hello.

Conditions: Unity version = 4.0(4.0) SR 1 Exchange version = Exchange 2000 build: 6249: SP 3 Unity Exchange Partner server IP address changed. VPIM integration with Avaya Interchange.

Workaround

The issue is resolved by configuring the Default SMTP Virtual Server to listen on the new IP Address on the server. You can do that by opening the Exchange System manager, then, browse to the Exchange server, click on protocols, then SMTP, and finally right click on SMTP virtual server and select properties You will notice that the IP for the SMTP virtual server was set to the OLD IP address that they have before they moved the box to the new network. This can setting be set to a fixed IP address or can be "All unassigned." If they had all unassigned, which means take the default IP address and get it from the TCPIP settings of your NIC card, then customer would have not had any issue when they moved the box, but because the IP was fixed to the old (wrong IP), then, SMTP was not working correctly. Once we changed this setting to the new IP address it started working.

dommessaging

Messages with 0 seconds of audio delivered to Unity MTA folder.

Symptom: Messages with 0 length audio are getting delivered to the UnityMTA folder and then are getting rejected by Domino and are moved to the Failed folder.

Conditions: Unity 4.0(4) SR1 ES58 and 76 DUCS 1.2.2 Build 49 Domino 6.5

Workaround

If the messages are really of 0 length, they are not valid voicemail and can be ignored.

Directory updates between Unity and the Bridge fail. Diags need more information.

Symptom: Directory updates from Unity do not make it to the Bridge and visa versa. CSBridgeConnector diags and application event log indicate a failure logging on to and getting the UOmni_<ServerName> mailbox.

Conditions: This can occur if the CsBridgeConnector service can not log onto and get the Inbox for the UOmni_<Servername> mailbox. In this specific case the UOmni_<ServerName> mailbox in SQL was not synched with the AD object.

Workaround

Run \Commserver\Configuration Setup\setup.exe -sync to sync SQL with AD. Once the synch is complete, restart the CsBridgeConnector service. Further Problem Description:

AvDSGlobalCatalgue report exception when list of enumerate items is zero. Symptom: Unable to import users via CUBI or the SA

Conditions: The AvDSGlobalCatalogue service should return S_FALSE with an empty variant array when a client calls CAvIDCAD::GetExistingDomains. Then the client can check how many items are in that array or key off of a return of S_FALSE and decide what to tell the user. In this case the client is the SA so it will be necessary to review the SA code to ensure that it can handle this condition. Here are the logs with the AvDSGlobalCatalogue service reporting an exception: 11:39:00:530, -1, -1, -1, -1, LogMgr, -1, diag Diag file opened 2005-08-04 11:39:00 11:39:00:530 (AvDiagnostics_MC,1152,-1,-1) [Thread 2924] LOGMGR OPENNEXTDIAGFILE C: \CommServer\Logs\diag_AvDSGl obalCatalog_20050803_220001.txt C: \CommServer\Logs\diag_AvDSGl obalCatalog_20050804_113900.txt 11:40:50:935 (AvDiagnostics_MC,1686,DSGlobalCatalog,0) [Thread 4484] COM Method CAvIDCAD::GetExistingDomains entered. 11:40:50:936 (AvDiagnostics_MC,1702,DSGlobalCatalog,10) [Thread 4484] spEnumVariant->Next(GC:) CAvIDCAD::GetExistingDomains() ulFetched=0. 11:40:50:935 (**,-1,-1,-1) [Thread 4484] Exception caught e: \Views\cs_CU4.0.4.221\un_Doh2\AvDirMonG lobalCatalog\AvDSGlobalCatalog\AvIDCAD.cpp 961 80004005H Workaround

This is typically indicative of networking issues. The one site that had this issue it turns out they had DNS issues - it is was not possible to contact the Microsoft Exchange server via fully qualified name using the ping command from the Cisco Unity server. Once customer resolved their DNS issues they were able to import users from both the SA and CUBI.

After Error Greeting, Unity disconnects the call instead of recording a message.

Symptom: Unity 4.0(5) with Error Greeting enabled via Tools Depot/Administrative Tools. The after greeting action is set to take a message. When a caller hears a subscriber's greeting and presses an invalid key, they are transferred to the subscriber's error greeting. The caller hears the error greeting and then the prompt "record your message at the tone. When you are finished, hang up or hold for more options." Unity then disconnects the call instead of playing the tone and recording the message.

Condition: This is known to occur in Unity 4.0(5), but may occur in other versions as well.

There is no workaround.

Unity 4.0(5) - French - AvConvHotelFRA033.wav is incorrect. Symptom: when hitting the Hotel greeting AvConvHotelFRA033.wav, it plays: "Pour quitter, appuyez sur la touche dièse, pour joindre la réception, appuyez sur 0. " This translates to: "To Exit press #, to reach the operator press 0. " Actually entering # does not exit. The user has to use *.

Conditions: Unity 4.0(5) with French locale using the French hotel conversation prompt: AvConvHotelENU033.wav

Workaround

Use another prompt that correctly stated to use * to exit. Further Problem Description: The AvConvHotelFRA033.wav plays: "Pour quitter, appuyez sur la touche dièse, pour joindre la réception, appuyez sur 0. " This translates to: "To Exit press #, to reach the operator press 0. " The ENU counterpart: AvConvHotelENU033.wav plays: "To Exit press *, to reach the operator press 0. " This is not consistent and the French version should list * to exit and not #.

Unity 4.0(5) - CUBI import from AD does not allow "(" and ")."

Symptom: Unity 4.0(5) - when trying to import users from AD using CUBI, "(" and ")" are rejectes as invalid characters in the AD display name. When trying to import these users from the SA web, it works fine.

Conditions: users to be imported from AD have "(" and ")" characters in the AD display name.

Workaround

Failback fails if Primary still has active call from before.

Symptom: When attempting to Failback a Unity failover pair, one or more ports on the primary server become unresponsive. A new call into Unity may CFNA to the secondary and trigger a new failover event.

Conditions: This has been seen when using TSP 8.0(1b). It occurs if Failback is attempted while the primary (inactive) server is still handling a call that was received before the last failover event occurred.

Workaround

Ensure that all ports on the primary (inactive) server are Idle before initiating Failback. If necessary, stop and restart Unity on the primary server before initiating Failback.

Unity unable to play subscriber sign in conversation.

Cisco Unity will not be able to open a scripted conversation file if the filename case is not as expected, i.e. the script file was named SUBSIGNSCRIPT.CDE when it was expecting SubSignInScript.cde. As Cisco Unity failed to load this conversation script, it played the prompt: 'A system error has occurred. Contact your administrator'. This can occur with other conversation script files as well.

Conditions: Customer had downloaded the Cisco Unity software from CCO and using a 3rd party software burned a CD and so it appears the media that the customer used made all files upper case and also appears that some files were truncated.

Workaround

After changing the name of the file to SubSignScript.cde Cisco Unity was able to load the script file and play the appropriate prompt. A quick check of the other files under the Commserver folder and subfolders revealed a number of other files were also in upper case.

dommessaging

Cisco Unity subscribers homed on servers other than the Domino partner mail server get the failsafe when they try to send messages using the TUI. Subscribers can log on to their mailboxes, and Cisco Unity allows them to press to 2 to send a message. But after recording a message and pressing # to send it, Cisco Unity plays the failsafe and hangs up; the message is not delivered.

Condition: This problem has been seen in a Domino cluster environment, when the Domino partner mail server service has been shut down (by typing quit in the console), with the following versions:

-- Cisco Unity 4.1(1)

-- Notes 7.0 on the Cisco Unity server

-- Domino 7.0 on the Domino partner mail server

-- DUC for Cisco version 1.2.3

When Cisco Unity attempts to submit a message to mail.box on the Domino partner mail server, Notes returns an error code 0xA02. In this case, Cisco Unity does not attempt to submit the message to mail.box on a Domino cluster mate server, and fails to deliver the message, which in turn, causes the TUI to play the failsafe to the subscriber. The following error from CiscoUnity_MALLn is logged to Event Viewer:

Event ID 14

"The Unity for Domino messaging component was unable to open the mailfile [mail.box] on server [CN=ServerName/O=OrgName]. The Notes subsystem returned the following error: (0xA02) Remote system no longer responding."

Other Symptoms: Subscribers homed on the Domino partner mail server get the failsafe when they attempt to logon to their mailboxes via the TUI. Messages left by callers remain in the UMR (the UnityMTA folder on the Cisco Unity server).

There is no workaround.

Troubleshooting

Cisco Unity troubleshooting information can be found in the Cisco Unity Troubleshooting Guide, Release 4.0(5). The Domino version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/tsg/tsg405/dom/index.htm. The Exchange version of the guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/unity40/tsg/tsg405/ex/index.htm.

Installing a Cisco Unity Demonstration System

A demonstration system is a fully functioning version of Cisco Unity that has the limits noted in the "Limits on a Cisco Unity Demonstration System" section. A demonstration system uses one of two different license files:

Default license file (available on the Cisco Unity server).

Time-limited license file (must be ordered from Cisco).


Note Because a demonstration system is a fully functioning Cisco Unity system, installing a demonstration system requires the same level of care and attention to detail that is required of installing a system on a customer site. To successfully install a demonstration system, refer to the instructions in the Cisco Unity installation guide and in the integration guide for your phone system. Cisco TAC does not provide support for Cisco Unity demonstration systems. The Cisco Unity installation guide is available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_installation_guides_list.html.


The software for a demonstration system can be ordered on line. The orderable demonstration system is the easiest way to get an entire set of the discs, including third-party software (except Windows 2000 Server). It is available at http://www.cisco.com/order/apollo/configureHome.html. The part number is UNITY4-DEMO-10USR.

We strongly recommend that you install a demonstration system by using the software you receive when you purchase either the full version of Cisco Unity or the orderable demonstration system. Both include the versions of third-party products that Cisco Unity requires to function properly. Installations of demonstration systems frequently fail because the installer is using an unsupported version of third-party software.

To enable the demonstration system, see the applicable section, depending on which license file you are using:

"Enabling a Cisco Unity Demonstration System with the Default License File" section.

"Enabling a Cisco Unity Demonstration System with the Time-Limited License File" section.

See also the "Converting a Cisco Unity Demonstration System to a Standard System" section, if applicable.

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests, or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
