Avaya Communication Manager, Release 2.

1 Known Issues and Workarounds for the DEFINITY Servers

Messaging, Call Coverage, Vendor Equipment & Applications, ISDN, QSIG Agent, Service Observing

Calls from a media server and an Octel 350 messaging system connected to a GTD5 server via QSIG that cover to the Octel system do not update the Message Waiting Indicator.

Run a reset level 2 on the media server. A resolution is available for Release 2.0.1 of Communication Manager.


When a remote sevice observer is dropped from a call Call back in to continue observing the agent. because the agent being observed transfers the call to a non-observed number, the observer ceases to observe not only that call but also the agent. The command ‘list groups-of-extensions’ causes a temporary increase in processor occupancy. This situation is improved in Release 1.3.2 and resolved in Release 2.1 of Communication Manager. Request a software update from your Technical Services Organization. Busy and release the affected trunk.

Attendant, If a call is transferred from AUDIX to an attendant, the Displays, AUDIX, number of the calling party appears on the attendant's Transfer display, but the display goes blank after 5 seconds. IP Trunk If a call is active on an IP trunk when its signaling group transitions to the state 'far-end bypass', that trunk stays in the state 'pending-busyout' and thus remains unavailable even after the bypass condition clears. Outgoing R300 calls over an analog CO trunk do not succeed.



Remote Office

R300 configurations with analog CO trunks should obtain a software update for this issue before upgrading to Release 2.x of Communication Manager. A resolution is available for Communication Manager 2.0.1. A resolution is available for Communication Manager 2.0.1.


AAR & ARS, Dial Removing ARS translations from the dial plan does not Plan reduce the percent full reported (accurately) by the command 'disp dialplan analysis'. Transfer, Dropped Calls If a call goes to coverage and then gets answered by a bridged appearance of the coverage point, then an attempt to transfer the call back to the station called originally results in the call dropping about half a minute after the transfer is complete.



If an agent using an IP telecommuter configuration without Dropped Calls, Softphone, Agent call waiting but with auto-answer logs into Communication Manager and into at least one skill, and then goes into the aux-work state, then if that agent is off-hook and goes into the auto-in state while there are calls in the queue, any calls sent to that agent drop. Traffic, System Resets, IP Solutions Digital Stations If, on the ip-network-region form, you set the UDP Port Min field below 256, heavy IP call traffic may result in a system reset. If you attempt to use the command ‘duplicate station’ for a digital station that has enhanced conferencing and a NoHold Conference button, you receive the message Error Encountered Cannot Complete Request. If trunk-to-trunk transfer is disabled, then if QSIG path replacement results in a trunk-to-trunk call, the call is dropped.

Enable call waiting or go on hook (without a headset active) before entering the auto-in state. A resolution is available for Communication Manager 2.0.1.


Set UDP Port Min to be at least 256.


Remove the button before duplicating the station.


ISDN, QSIG, Dropped Calls

Enable trunk-to-trunk transfer.


Following a call-preserving upgrade on a duplicated ISDN, PRI, Using the SAT, busy out and release the D-channel of Upgrades, Trunks DEFINITY Server R, trunks for ISDN PRI signaling groups the affected group. are not restored properly after they are busied out or out of service, even though they may appear to stay in service. Dial Plan If your dial plan includes four or more non-contiguous extension ranges whose dialed strings all start with the same digit (for instance, 30, 32, 34, and 37), only the first three ranges appear when you use the command 'list station'. Direct Connect Critical Reliability does not preserve talkpaths after a PNC interchange. Administer additional range(s) to ensure that there are no more than three non-contiguous ranges (for instance, 30, 32, 33, 34, and 37, so that 32-33-34 is contiguous).

Port Networks, Duplication

Request a software update from your Technical Services Organization. Set the method of DTMF for the signaling group to 'inband'.

Tones, IP Trunk, If a call that should be shuffled includes an IP endpoint in Codec, Quality of a signaling group whose method of DTMF is set to 'inband-g711', the shuffling does not take place, which may Service result in degradation of voice quality.
