To find more information about Cisco Unity error messages in the event log, perform these steps:

  1. Take the error 0x8007042c and only use the last four characters. In this case, the last four characters would be 042c.
  2. Convert hex 042c to a decimal, which yields 1068.

    Note: If you need assistance converting a hex to a decimal, tools are available on the Internet or in Windows calculator.

    To use Windows calculator to convert the number, perform these steps:

    1. Go to Start > Run > Calc.
    2. Go to View > Scientific.
    3. Click the hex radio button, put in the hex number and then click the decimal radio button.
  3. From a Windows machine command prompt on your Cisco Unity server, type net helpmsg 1068. Alternatively, you can enter 1068 at the Cisco Unity Error Message Finder.

    This is an example:

    C:\>net helpmsg 1068
