This document describes a problem encountered in Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (UCCX) Release 10.5 and later where an error appears during agent login to Finesse.
With UCCX Release 10.5 and later, there is support for IPv6 addressing in the Unified Communications environment. Also with UCCX Release 10.0 and later, Finesse is an agent desktop available for users along with the traditional Cisco Agent Desktop. Among other models, 7941 Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phones are one of the supported phone models for Finesse login. This document uses this phone model as an example for a login failure when the IPv6 is enabled in the network.
When the agent tries to log in to Finesse, this error appears:
The device associated with that extension or dial number is invalid.
This error appears when IPv6 is enabled for the phone but it is not assigned an IPv6 address. An examination of the logs reveals that the phone was not assigned an IPv6 address. Ideally, this should not be a problem and the UCCX should be able to handle the login as long as there is an IPv4 address in the dual-stack mode. This issue can be tracked under Cisco bug ID CSCuq64309.

You can use this workaround in order to make sure the phone remains in the IPv4 mode only and the agent login is successful:
Navigate to Device > Common Device Configuration.
Use the Default, which affects all of the phones in the Call Manager or create a new Device Configuration and assign it only to the Contact Center agent phones.
In the profile, change the IP addressing Mode from IPv6 and IPv4 to IPv4 only.
Reset the phones.
Test the login again.
Note: This issue is encountered and must be addressed only if IPv6 is enabled in the network and an IPv6 address is not assigned to the phone.
