RPRM displays ongoing ghost / phantom V/C in conference status.

Hello Polycom Community,

 

Been having and ongoing issue with Video Conference calls lingering on the RPRM after V/C ends.

It is the 13th of AUG, 2018 and have 'noticed' this issue for over 1 1/2 to 2 months.

 

RPRM Software Version: 10.3.0_26,

DMA System Version: 6.4.1_P8_Build_244360

All HDX's and Group Series are affected.

At this time Group 500 System Software Release: 6.1.2-380088 on #1, and 

At this time Group 500 System Software Release: 6.1.7-450056 on #2

 

RPRM displays Today's Adhoc Conferences; currently Total - 36, Ongoing - 1.

RPRM displays Conference Status; Internal Multipoint - 1 online

DMA displays: Network > Active Calls - 0

DMA displays: Reports > Call History - 

Endpoint #1 a Group 500 -  System > Call Statistics - The system is not currently in a call

Endpoint #2 a Group 500 -  System > Call Statistics - The system is not currently in a call

 

Can, reboot endpoint, via RPRM, endpoint or via telnet command, V/C still hangs, until terminated on RPRM.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

Were you able to resolve issue?

What was Root Cause Analysis?

 

Regards,

Hello Steffen B.,

 

Thanks for you fast reply, yes have been working with our service provider and there has been multiple tickets submitted to Polycom.

 

As this has been an ongoing issue, would expect that others within the Polycom Community that use Polycom Infrastructure; DMA, RPAD, RPRM and Group or HDX endpoint might have ran into similar problems.

 

Regards,

 

Dragon1964

Re: RPRM displays ongoing ghost / phantom V/C in conference status.

Similar setup, RPRM and DMA versions (though our HyperV hosted DMA keeps corrupting, have a ticket in for ANOTHER rebuild and investigation... another story).

 

I have noticed the exact same problem, going back into Winter 18 at least. We do decent number of hour+ conferences daily (classes in higher ed). I'll go in periodically and nuke the 'hangers on' in RPRM just so at a quick glance we are not viewing more going on than what is happening in real time.

 

DMA, the bridge, etc don't show these calls/conferences - just RPRM. So you are not alone.

Re: RPRM displays ongoing ghost / phantom V/C in conference status.

Hello Scotter edu,

 

Thanks for that feed back, yes, have had to do the same thing just flick those hangers off the RPRM daily.

 

At this moment, we have a 23Hr 1min ghost call(VMR), between our customer in Tokyo and an their local V/C Engineer's test V/C.

 

Have contacted Polycom's Concierge, was directed to the CMC Team. within 45min - 1Hr of the start time. CMC Tier 2, said he retreived the log files from the RPRM.

 

We, pulled 2 Jserver log files and the endpoints System Log, too.

 

This has been an ongoing process... 

 

Ref: Polycom DMA release 6.4.1_P8:

Known Issue:

EN-59159: If a SIP call gets CANCEL’d quickly CANCL fails and the call never gets cleaned up.

 

Other than kicking off the ghost calls, have you found a better solution?

 

Regards,

Re: RPRM displays ongoing ghost / phantom V/C in conference status.

Hey Dragon,

 

We are getting our ghosts, generally, on H323 calls. Most of our calls consist of Endpoints behind our RPAD, a MediaSuite recorder is involved in 95% of them - but it disconnects cleanly.

 

For now, I just clean them up now and again. Delete, wait a moment and refresh RPRM, do it again, refresh...

 

Not the end of the world, but not much fun either.
