Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pub?

CM 5.1.1.3124-1

Publisher exprienced a hardware failure due to a power interruption. Can the Subscriber take the Publisher role? Currently unable to send or receive outside calls only local calling is working. I am trying to get calling to work while we wait for the replacement hardware.

Thanks,

Ryan

Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pub?

I haven't worked with MGCP for a long time, so maybe just shooting in the dark here...


ccm-manager redundant-host 10.82.20.10 -- should this be the sub ip? ccm-manager config server 10.82.20.10 -- this is the tftp server right?

Re: Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pu

You might try resetting the gateway in cucm.  As long as your mgcp bind interface is reachable by the sub which it appears to be based on the above output, you should be good to go.

You can carry on without the pub. What protocol are you using for your gateway(s)?

We are using SCCP.

If phones are still registered (which they are if station to station calls work), but inbound/outbound pstn calls are not working then it points to the cucm <-> gateway.  Does the gateway cucm group include the sub(s) or just the pub?

Re: Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pu

Is this information found in CM Administration under System > Cisco Unified CallManager Group? I am sorry I don't know the answer for sure. There is the default group that has the Sub (6 devices). There is a second group that has neither (387 devices)?

The symtom you described is exactly what we are experiencing calling phone to phone work but not CM-Gateway.

Yes - that's the menu path. A little under that is the device pool menu. Make sure that the device pool assigned to the phones as well as the gateway(s) includes a cucm group with at least one server running the call manager service.

Also it would be helpful if you could post the relevant portion of your gateway configs.

Re: Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pu

OK, I confirmed that both the CM servers are in the same device pool as the VG-224s and the phones.

Here is a link to a text file of the config for the VG-224:

Thanks for all your help with this!

In this portion should the redundant-host be set to 10.82.20.11 (Sub)? The 10.82.20.10 (Pub) server is the one that is currently off-line.

VG-224 config:

ccm-manager fallback-mgcp

ccm-manager redundant-host 10.82.20.10

ccm-manager mgcp

no ccm-manager fax protocol cisco

ccm-manager music-on-hold

ccm-manager config server 10.82.20.10 

ccm-manager config

ccm-manager config dialpeer-prefix

Re: Publisher hardware failure, can the sub take over for the pu

OK, I have made the change to the redundant server, but outside calls are still not going through. The Sub took the place of the primary CM. Are there services on the Sub that need to be started for it to act as a Pub?
