VVX Voicemail audible notification

Hello all,

 

I have client who is getting a bit annoyed with the constant audible notification that they have voicemails.  I'm not sure if this is related to Polycom or my phone system sending a constant SIP-NOTIFY message.  

 

Dug around on the boards and found the following

 

http://community.polycom.com/t5/VoIP/IP-650-voicemail-audible-warble-notification/m-p/58814#M9662

 

But that seems to pertain to SPIP and not VVX.  

 

So my questions:

1.  Is this a Polycom phone issue or something with my phone system sending SIP-NOTIFY's for voicemail

2.  Is there something similar to the link I referenced above for VVX.  Currently VVX phoens are setup with a MAC.cfg, which references EXTsip-basic.cfg and EXTreg-basic.cfg

 

Polycom software is 4_0_7 release.  Thanks for any assistance!  Hoping this is just a nerd-knob somewhere in .cfg files in VVX I can't find.

Re: VVX Voicemail audible notification

Ok, so I did a grep on the vvx directory looking for "chord" and came across a Site.cfg file.  There was this line:

 

<se se.stutterOnVoiceMail="1">
<se.pat>
<se.pat.ringer>
<se.pat.ringer.ringer1 se.pat.ringer.ringer1.name="Silent Ring">
<se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst.1.type="silence" se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst.1.value="0" se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst.2.type="" se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst.2.value="">
</se.pat.ringer.ringer1.inst>
</se.pat.ringer.ringer1>

 

Granted, I'm not referencing any site.cfg file in my phones mac.cfg files.  I will test this out next time I'm onsite or get some lab time, but still, any input would be great.  Thanks!

Re: VVX Voicemail audible notification

Thanks, Steffe.  So I found this tagged area in regions.  Is it safe to say that I would need to change type="chord" to type="silence".  If there is documentation that my googlefu isn't able to locate I apologize.  

 

<se.pat.misc.messageWaiting se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.name="Message waiting">
<se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.1.atten="0" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.1.param="0" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.1.type="chord" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.1.value="cs1" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.2.atten="0" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.2.param="0" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.2.type="chord" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.2.value="cs2" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.3.type="chord" se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst.3.value="cs1">
</se.pat.misc.messageWaiting.inst>

Re: VVX Voicemail audible notification

Hey, I did some digging around and it looks like type="silence" is what you want.

 

Link 1  - http://serverfault.com/questions/330275/how-can-i-disable-the-audible-mwi-on-polycom-phones

 

Link 2, answer from Bogdan towards the bottom - http://www.3cx.com/forums/polycom-phones-message-waiting-tone-24196.html

 

 

In the UCS 4.1.0 Admin guide, check out page 488 - http://support.polycom.com/global/documents/support/setup_maintenance/products/voice/UC_Software_Adm...

 

You can select a tone pattern from the patterns defined in se.pat.misc. These patterns include: custom1 to custom10, instantMessaging, localHoldNotification, messageWaiting, misc1 to misc9, negativeConfirm, positiveConfirm, remoteHoldNotification, silent, and welcome. For information on customizing these parameters, refer to se.pat.misc.

 

It doesn't have the entire string in there you mentioned, but could point to the right path.  I hope this helps!

Re: VVX Voicemail audible notification

If you follow your nose with this link, you end up with the following tags below.  I ended up adding this to <mac>.cfg files that were annoyed by the chirp and it solved the issue.  There was some config in the regions file, so I guess you might be able to manipulate that, and if all your phones where set to look for that file it would turn off the audible indicator for everyone. 

 

Thanks all for help and posting!
