    Busy signal when any phone tries to check voicemail

    ageinc New Member

      Hello, our IP712 phones work swimmingly except we receive a busy tone whenever we try to log in to voicemail. What are some diagnostic procedures we could take to fix the issue?

          ageinc,

           

          Thank you for posting this question to our Support Community.  Are you pressing the message key on the phone or using some other method to access voicemail?  If you can supply the current configuration and the output from both a debug voice verbose as well as debug sip stack messages while the issue is recreated, I would be happy to troubleshoot further with you.  You can submit them on our FTP server with the instructions below:

           

          Open Internet Explorer web browser on their PC
          Type the following URL:  ftp://ftp.adtran.com

          Press the Alt key, click View, and then click Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer

          Double-click the "Incoming" folder
          Drag and drop files from PC into the Internet Explorer window

          Reply to this post with the exact filenames used so we can retrieve the files

           

          Thanks,

          Matt

              Thank you for your response Matt

              We are pressing the Messages key, but receive a busy signal. I sent the file ageinc-config-NV7100-06-27-2013.cfg through the ftp server. I was reading through some of the related posts and noticed that upgrading the firmware seems to fix some issues, so perhaps I should try that before making debug logs? I noticed there are 2 very recent firmware versions (R10.8.0 and R10.5.3), so which one would you recommend I use?

                  I would recommend R10.5.3.HA.  You need to make sure and read the release notes that detail the appropriate phone firmware required to accompany the upgrade as well as save a copy of your configuration before attempting the upgrade.  Please come back and update the post after you upgrade to let us know if it worked or if you still need help.  If you still have problems I will need to see the configuration file from the new firmware version along with the debugs requested in my last reply.

                   

                  Thanks,

                  Matt

                      I was looking into the various requirements to update the firmware/boot codes up to the ones suggested, and it appears that I need firmware A4.10 in order to update to R10.5.3 HA. I couldnt find A4.10 on the Software Downloads page, so could I use A4.12 or is there another way I could find A4.10?

                          You can upgrade directly to R10.5.3.HA.  I think I see where you got the impression that A4.10 was required.  In the release notes there is a Minimum Software or Firmware Summary table.  That table is meant to detail interoperability requirements.  In other words a unit running R10.5.3.HA requires the software outlined in the table be installed on the separate device it is interoperating with.  So if a NetVanta 7100 running R10.5.3.HA was interoperating with another NetVanta 7100, the other 7100 would need to have A4.10 or later installed. 

                           

                          Before upgrading make sure you read the release notes for the version you choose to upgrade to as they detail boot code and phone firmware requirements among other things.  You should also always save a copy of your current configuration before upgrading.  Sometimes commands are added or changed, and it is a good idea to keep a copy of working configuration for a particular firmware version in case you ever need to downgrade.

                           

                          Thanks,
