I am using Asterisk 11.17.1/Freepbx as voicemail server for Cisco phones that I have registered to Cisco Call Manager. I have SIP trunk between CUCM and Freepbx and i am successfully able to leave and retrieve voice messages for the Cisco phone registered to CUCM. However, the MWI part is still not working. I configured the script for MWI from the link https://community.freepbx.org/t/cisco-call-manager-freepbx-for-voicemail/10711/4 and I have specified the file name in externnotify under voicemail.conf. But its still not working. When I try to run the script manually by doing ./vm.sh, I get below warnings on the asterisk cli.
[2017-07-19 17:48:23] WARNING: pbx_spool.c:289 apply_outgoing: At least one of app or extension must be specified, along with tech and dest in file /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/.call
[2017-07-19 17:48:23] WARNING: pbx_spool.c:456 scan_service: Invalid file contents in /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/.call, deleting
My script looks like below:
#!/bin/bash CONTEXT=$1 EXTEN=$2 NUMVMS=$3 Turnoff="Channel: SIP/[email protected]\nCallerid: $EXTEN\nMaxRetries: 0\nRetryTime: 5\nWaitTime: 5\nContext: $CONTEXT\nExtension: $EXTEN" Turnon="Channel: SIP/[email protected]\nCallerid: $EXTEN\nMaxRetries: 0\nRetryTime: 5\nWaitTime: 5\nContext: $CONTEXT\nExtension: $EXTEN" if [[ $NUMVMS = "0" ]]; then echo -e $Turnoff >> /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/$date.call else echo -e $Turnon >> /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/$date.call fi
Also when I try to run the channel command ( echo -e Channel: SIP/[email protected]\nCallerid: 1205\nMaxRetries: 0\nRetryTime: 5\nWaitTime: 5\nContext: default\nExtension: 1205 >> /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/$date.call) from the CLI it gives me same errors, as if the script is not getting the variable values from asterisk.
Can someone please help me how I can make MWI working for the phones registered to CUCM?
Phone is configured as “custom” extension in asterisk.
I have MWI extensions (28888 and 288889) configured in CUCM.
I dont see asterisk trying to make a call to CUCM for MWI extensions when a message is left on voicemail.
