Troubleshooting Legend/Magix T1 issues

Posted Posted in Merlin Legend/Magix

PRI TROUBLESHOOTING- D Channel Inoperative

1)    Check Permanent alarm table for any other T carrier related alarms (i.e., DS1 loss of  Signal). If present trouble shoot those alarms. (See Errors below)
2)    Verify the status of the network and the DTE on the CSUs  LEDs. Troubleshoot
accordingly if either side shows a problem . (On 3160/3164 CSU, verify that the LEDs are assigned to DTE.
3)   Verify that the CSU channels are mapped and Programmed for DATA
4)   Verify that the CO (Central Office) switch selection in the PRI programming is correct i.e., B8ZS/ESF
5)   Verify that the Magix TEI is set for 0 ( Lines/Trunks>PRI>Protocol>TEI.)
6)   Demand Test the 100d module
7)   If the T carrier is set to AMI, verify that the CO (Central Office) has inverted the D-channel
8)   Attempt to reset the PRI by disconnecting the cable at the 100D, wait 1 minute and then reconnect the cable
9)   Run the CSU Loop back test to a 103 loop back or loop back plug towards the Magix at the Smart jack
10) Verify that the Technician , while programming, did not program the PRI, then reprogram the T1 and then reprogram back to PRI. If so, system erase the Magix and re program the PRI and retest.
11) Cycle Power on the Magix
12) Verify the configuration of the CO (Central Office ) switch with the CO Technician
A)    If the CO is a 5ESS make sure they are running ATT Custom
B)    If the CO is a DMS 100 and/or DMS 250 make sure they have Variant= NTNAPRI, (L1 flags in Trunk Sub Group = Yes) If set to ‘NO’ the D channel will act problematic.
   C)    If DSX600E make sure Profile =p250.
13) Have the CO restart the PRI and determine why the D channel didn’t come up.
14) Verify the continuity for the T by having the CO run a stress test to a loop back at the CSU
15) Replace the 100d
16) Replace the Processor
17) At  this point the problem has to be a Network issue.

How to VPN enable 96XX Phones

Posted Posted in IP Office

This is an FAQ how to enable the vpn software and disable the vpn software on a 96xx phone.  This was plagiarized from Peter Ista’s post on Tek-Tips.

The vpn software is different from the 56xx series which needs special vpn firmware.
The 96xx phones do not need any other firmware but you just need to enable it.
Disabling the vpn option is also possible but removing is not a default option.

Here’s how to enable,disable and remove it.

ENABLE THE VPN OPTION:

Open the 46xxsettings.txt and add the next lines:

IF $GROUP SEQ 0 GOTO NO96XXVPN 
IF $GROUP SEQ 876 GOTO 96XXVPN 
# 96XXVPN 
GET 96xxvpn.txt 
# NO96XXVPN 
SET NVVPNMODE 0 
SET VPNPROC 0

Then make a new file called: 96xxvpn.txt

Put in the next lines and change as needed:

How Do I Set Up Voicemail Pro Failover on Server Edition

Posted Posted in IP Office

Setting up voicemail failover on a Linux based Voicemail Pro, is pretty straightforward. Just like setting up an SCN trunk, pointing to each IPO, you need to point the Voicemail Pro’s to each other. With Server Edition, we only have 2 options for Voicemail Pro, Centralized and Backup. If an all IP500 SCN, we could also do Distributed. So, lets configure a Server Edition Failover.

In the examples below, Our Primary Server is 10.129.131.22 and our Secondary Server is 10.129.131.23.

First, I like to log into the Backup voicemail.

Partner Mail R1.5 – R1.9

Auto Attendant Greetings

These are the greetings first played when the Auto Attendant answers a call, depending on whether the Partner system is in day or night mode.  These greetings are in the format, “Thank you for calling XYZ company:,  immediately followed by the Auto Attendant Main Menu Script.  Also instruct the caller to dial 1 if the Touchtone Gate is turned on.  If the Touchtone Gate is turned on, calls will be sent to the General Mailbox unless the caller dials 1 instead of playing the Auto Attendant Main Menu Script.  Changes to the Auto Attendant Greetings are made as follows:

Connect Voysys to Merlin 1030/3070

Posted Posted in Merlin Legend/Magix, Voysys Voicemail

Quick Reference Guide

Voysys on Merlin 1030/3070

1-Please read the Voysys System Reference manual in its entirety before installing a Voysys for the first time.

2-Verify that there are enough available station and line ports on the Merlin 1030/3070 system to make the required connections to the Voysys. Additional station and/or line boards may be necessary in order to install the Voysys.

3-Make all necessary programming changes to the Merlin 1030/3070 system before connecting to the Voysys.

4-The Voysys emulates a Merlin 1030/3070 attendant position. Stations 11, 12, 13, and 14 must be used to connect to the four Voysys emulation jacks. The switches on the Merlin 1030/3070 processor for these four stations must be set to attendant for proper operation of the Voysys. Changing the position of any of these switches requires a reboot of the Merlin 1030/3070 system. Make these changes before powering on the Voysys.
