Password for two sip servers

Password for two sip servers

We have a VVX 600 running UCS ver 5.4.1.14510.   We have line 1 configured with a sip server and it works fine.  But then on line 2 we configure a 2nd sip server and as soon as that setting is saved, line 1 goes out.  After lots of testing, we've found that if we re-enter the password that line comes online. If we retype the password on Line 1 under authentication, line 1 comes online and line 2 goes out (unable to register). On the PBX, we get the message "wrong password".  If I then go to line 2 and retype that password, it comes online and line 1 goes offline.  I thought I maybe it's using the same password for both lines for some reason so I set both to have the same password but that didn't help.  Whichever line I type the password in and hit save comes online and the other goes off with "wrong password" issue.

 

Any thoughts?

Re: Password for two sip servers

Hello jgranade,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

The community's VoIP FAQ contains this post here:

Oct 7, 2011 Question: Can I register or is my Polycom Phone compatible with a “XYZ” SIP Server?

Resolution: Please check => here <=


The above shows an easy simply illustration how to register one line and the relevant configuration if not done so via the Web Interface.

 

The exact same matches for additional lines and I can only assume you somehow got something mixed up.

 

Try to factory restore and follow the above.

 

If we would have a bug in something so simple we would be inundated with tickets.

Re: Password for two sip servers

I get that a bug is unthinkable and esentially impossible.  However, I wonder how many users you have using the lync editions of VVX 500 and VVX 600's with base mode set to 'generic' and trying to register to two sip servers simultaneously.  To test, I just did the same on a VVX 500 and it exhibits the same behavior.  Without change any other setting other than re-entering the password, if I enter the password on Line 1, it comes on line and Line 2's sip server starts recording 'wrong password'.  If I then go to line 2 and enter that password, line 2 comes up and line 1 fails to register.

 

Both phones have the same firmware.  Is there anything else I can try?

Re: Password for two sip servers

Hello jgranade,

that is an completely unsupported scenario.

 

Jan 25, 2016 Question:How many Lines can I register using Polycom phones with Lync Server / Skype for Business server ?

Resolution: You can register only one line when Lync is set as the base profile on the phone.

 

If you are using Lync you must use LYNC base profile.

 

Anything else we cannot help you with.

Re: Password for two sip servers

Steffen,

 

Thanks for the reply but I'm fairly confident that's incorrect, it is a supported scenario.  I did not say I was trying to use Lync and SIp.  I understand that's not supported (though I don't know why).  I'm just saying this is a Lync 'CAPABLE' phone model.  But the 'base profile' is set to 'generic' so it's 100% sip which I think is a supported scenario.

 

To continue testing, I put line 1 on 1 extension and line 2 on another extension (but both on the same sip server) and get the same behavior.  The password I enter last is online and the other one registers "wrong password" on the SIP Server.  But if I re-enter the password on line 2 for ext 2, it goes online and then line 1 starts recording "wrong password" on the SIP server.  But I know that password isn't wrong as I haven't changed it (I can't as it makes you save on each  screen for each line).

Re: Password for two sip servers

Hello John,

my mistake, I miss read this.

 

You should be able to use this and I am unsure why it would not work.

 

The next step is to contact your Polycom reseller so they can open a support case for you with Polycom support.

 

If you struggle identifying who that would be please provide the MAC address of the phone in question.

John,

I have the same issue, its a bug in the firmware I presume as I can sometimes fix it by exporting the config file, modifying and the pushing it to the phone. I have 2 SIP servers here and one houses the main pbx the other is a dialer, so I have a phone that needs 2 seperate extensions mapped along with a third extension thats mapped to a different sip server. Even when I set the password for Line 1 or Line 2 (pointing to the same sip server) the lines will fail registration alternately, so its not even mistaking one lines password for the other, its completely changing or doing something to it to make it invalid. I have 40 phones with this issue, I've been using polycom phones for over 8 years now and these are the first that behave like this and it all started after upgrading to the latest firmware.

 

Currently the Firmware for our phones are as follows:

Polycom 550

Bootblock: 3.0.2.0024

Updater:5.1.1.0132

 

Sip Ver 4.1.1.0731

 

Its not you, its the phone I assure you..

Try to export and re-import the config after hand modifying, sometimes it works, sometimes it excludes the auth lines and doesnt seem to pay attn to them on the import..

 

I hope they fix this as I am going to have to downgrade or use another vendors phone..

 

If you ever find a workaround I'd like to hear it other than provisioning through the xml files.. I may have to go that route..
