I’m having issues with EPM and provisioning one of our Cisco phones. I have configured 3 different extensions and assigned them to one endpoint and while they show up on the device softkeys only one of them ever works. I’ve tried both SIP and PJSIP without any luck.
I can always call into one of them and have it ring and also call out but the other two extensions won’t let me do either.
As for the logfiles, it looks like it’s only able to authenticate one of the extensions even though all are correct.

Not sure if Provisioning manager is happy about multiple extensions to a single config file.
Thinking you may have to disable the EPM and construct the required File/s manually using the current ones as a template.
Assuming that they collect it By Mac or userID.?
I have no experience with Cisco endpoints directly so I can only assume that they can handle the three lines.?
The EPM isn’t great for those phones, I ended up just creating a working config file and writing a simple tool to create a copy of it with just the needed vars changes (xtn, password etc).
I’m pretty sure there is an 8800 model phone in there though, but if thats a typo and you meant 9971, then that’s close enough (but I’d go for the 9951 as the number of line keys match)
Anyway, multiple line registrations. It is possible. I know I looked at it at some point but as I don’t have a need for it, it’s not in place. It’s a bit tricky.
The phone will not register the additional lines, it only registers the primary one… sort of. I think I remember something needs to be added to a config file somewhere, and the lines need to be configured not to register. I can check this today and post a working config.
Do you have the usecallmanager patch applied and working, because it won’t work without it.
What are you referring to usecallmanager patch? I don’t believe so but the phone still functions on a single line. I also checked and there is no CP8800 template in my EPM. My EPM does appear to be up to date. I will give the custom_post code a try.
Oh boy, looks like I have some work to do. Am I reading this right that I loose the ability to update the system automatically after this patch is installed? That is a pretty nice feature to have, especially for security updates.
Yes. While I trust the process and have great success with these handsets, it’s not something I can recommend without caution.
I need to upgrade from Asterisk 11.21.2 to 11.22 shortly and plan to do this by using the update process in FreePBX first anyway. This will upgrade the system and remove the patch, then I’ll just repatch Asterisk and reboot.
The Cisco SIP handsets do work (mostly) without patching, but when you want more, like working BLF, or dual registrations, then the patch is required.
If your FreePBX is running in a VM, then take a snapshot before you start and there is nothing to worry about should something go wrong.
Not yet, I’ll be doing the dev box possibly tomorrow and production in a few days. Don’t expect any issues. Will report back.
I was originally on A13 but used the version change to switch to Asterisk 11. The patch won’t work on anything else. You can (and should) use FreePBX 13, but Asterisk 11 instead of 13 in it. (Yay, version numbers!)
That went fine, but took an insane amount of time, not sure what server those updates came from but downloading at 30kb/s does not make for a happy me. Anyway, once those were done, the asterisk version was still 11.21.2, which caught me off guard.
11.22 has been out for a few weeks, I guess I just expected it to be in one of those updates. I didn’t bother proceeding, I’ll check the server when I get back to the office to see if the patch was removed or not (as the asterisk version didn’t change, I expect the patch won’t have been removed)
I’ve update the wiki with the newer version of mISDN and will update the asterisk and patch versions in due course, as it stands the instructions for 11.21-2 should still work fine.
Apparently I’m still on 11.21-2 even after rolling back to Asterisk 11 from 13. The issue I’m having is the step about searching for the lowercase “patch12” and adding a line beneath it. There is no other mention of patch12 in the file besides the first one with a capitol P.
