I add the following command on ccme but i can only made a conference call with three user at a time from my 7941 phone.
max-conferences 8 gain -6
Any other config is required to make conference call with more than 3 users.
It usually means the DSPfarm or SCCP configuration is incorrect or is not registered to CME. Perform "show dspfarm profile" and make sure that the registration is ACTIVE or registered. Anything else means that the SCCP registration for the DSPs failed.
Here is my "show dspfarm profile".
Dspfarm Profile Configuration
Profile ID = 1, Service = CONFERENCING, Resource ID = 2
Profile Description :
Profile Admin State : UP
Profile Operation State : ACTIVE IN PROGRESS
Application : SCCP Status : ASSOCIATION IN PROGRESS
Resource Provider : FLEX_DSPRM Status : UP
Number of Resource Configured : 5
Number of Resource Available : 5
Codec : g711ulaw, Maximum Packetization Period : 30 , Transcoder: Not Required
Codec : g711alaw, Maximum Packetization Period : 30 , Transcoder: Not Required
Codec : g729r8 pre-ietf, Maximum Packetization Period : 0 , Transcoder: Not Required
That means the DSPfarm profile is not yet registered - thus there are no DSP resources that the CME thinks is available for conferencing.
Can you send your whole configs? Of course, edit out passwords.
In reference to my config file:
conference drop-mode creator
conference add-mode creator
statements are currently only on the phones we are testing with in our lab.
Should those statements also work in the ephone-template 1?
I see several things wrong with your configuration already. For 5510 dsps to register to CME using sccp, they need to use minimum version 4.0 (which refers to CCM version. Even though there is no CCM here, the sccp version needs to be minimum of 4.0).
Use something like:
sccp local GigabitEthernet0/0
sccp ccm 192.168.66.1 identifier 100 version 4.0
sccp ccm group 1
bind interface GigabitEthernet0/0
associate ccm 100 priority 1
associate profile 1 register confprof1
keepalive retries 5
switchover method immediate
switchback method immediate
switchback interval 5
dspfarm profile 1 conference
no codec g729ar8
no codec g729abr8
no codec g729r8
no codec g729br8
maximum conference-participants 32
maximum sessions 4
associate application SCCP
sdspfarm units 4
sdspfarm tag 1 confprof1
load 7941GE TERM41.7-0-3-0S
load 7936 cmterm_7936.3-3-5-0
ip source-address 192.168.66.1 port 2000
max-conferences 8 gain -6

I appreciate all of the help that has been given on this subject.
I ran across this document while taking the IPTX class and it turned out very helpful. When I did this the dspfarm registered and the conferencing works now.
Note: If the conference bridge does not register after a reset, you might need to delete and recreate the profile in Cisco CallManager. You can also bounce the sccp and dspfarm registration in IOS in order to resolve this issue. Try these commands:
Hi, I have a follow-up question.
The MeetMe configuration is straight-forward. What's throwing me off here is the AdHoc conferencing...I need to create multiple DN's just to allow hardware-based AdHoc conferencing?!? If so, I would think that users wouldn't actually dial this DN, so I could use an alphanumeric number.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thx and Happy New Year!
Ok, so now my question is on sizing.
For MeetMe's, each session can be up to 32 participants, depending on codec, and only 1 DN is necessary to access it. So if I wanted to have a total of 10 MeetMe's available, I could have 10 ephone-DN's (or 5 dual-line ephone-DN's) with the same number, correct?
For AdHoc's, would I need 8 ephone-DN's (or 4 dual-line ephone-DN's) per session? So if I wanted to have an additional 5 conference sessions in addition to the 10 MeetMe's, I would set "maximum sessions" under the dspfarm profile to allow for the total number of sessions (of either type). Then would I need 40 ephone-DN's to accommodate all 5 AdHoc sessions (8 per session)?
Hi there was wondering if anyone could help me. I am following this thread with great interest as I am keen to get 8 party adhoc working on our 2811 with 1x PVDM2-16, and 1 VWIC-1MFT-E1 (configured to use 9 timeslots).
The problem I have is when I try to define the "maximum sessions" in the dspfarm profile. this is the output I get:
PhoneSYS(config-dspfarm-profile)#maximum sessions ?
<0-0> Number of sessions assigned to this profile
When I try "maximum sessions 1", it comes back with "invalid input" under the "1".
I am thinking along the lines of not enough DSP resources. Would anybody be able to confirm if I am right or wrong ?.
Thanks in advance,
Do you have this statement in the running config?
"dsp services dspfarm"
If you don't...
make sure and do a shutdown on your dspfarm profile and then add "dsp services dspfarm" to the voice-card 0. Then "no shutdown" on your dspfarm profile.
This may not be much help, but, this document is the data sheet for the DSP modules...
