Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products
Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them,
and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you have identified a vulnerability
in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:
•
For emergencies only — security-alert@cisco.com
An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which
a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered
nonemergencies.

We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product (for example, GnuPG) to
encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work with information that has been
encrypted with PGP versions 2.x through 9.x.
Never use a revoked encryption key or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your
correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security
Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html
The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.
If you do not have or use PGP, contact PSIRT to find other means of encrypting the data before sending
any sensitive material.

Preface
Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations.
You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired while most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

About Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) isan industry-standard interface for exchanging
management information between network devices. SNMP and its components provide you with
information about your Cisco CRS system. You can refer to this information to monitor and manage the
status of the Cisco CRS system, its subsystems, and its related installed components. You can also use
this information to troubleshoot problems, if they arise.
You can set up SNMP traps to automatically notify you of high-severity messages and errors that are
generated by the Cisco CRS system.
SNMP Basics
A network management system (NMS) uses SNMP to exchange management information between
devices on a network. An SNMP-managed network is made up of the following main components:
•
Managed devices—Network nodes, each containing an SNMP agent. Managed devices collect and
store information and make this information available using SNMP.
•
Agents—Network management software that resides on a managed device. An agent contains local
knowledge of management information and translates the information into a form that is compatible
with SNMP.
Cisco Customer Response Solutions Servicing and Troubleshooting Guide, Release 5.0(1)
2-1
Chapter 2
Simple Network Management Protocol Support
SNMP Agent and Subagents
•
Management stations—Computers on which the NMS is installed and from which system
administrators can retrieve and evaluate information from managed devices.
SNMP Agent and Subagents
The Microsoft Windows SNMP service (referred to as the SNMP Service) provides a framework for
SNMP and provides the SNMP agent that interfaces with SNMP subagents.
SNMP Service starts automatically when the system starts. You can restart or stop the SNMP Service if
a problem occurs or if it did not start automatically.
For more information, see Starting, Stopping, and Confirming the SNMP Service, page 2-9.
For information on configuring SNMP Service, see SNMP Traps, page 2-6.
SNMP Management Information Base (MIB)
A Management Information Base (MIB) designates a collection of information that is organized
hierarchically. You access MIBs with SNMP. MIBs are made up of managed objects, which are identified
by object identifiers. Managed objects are made up of one or more object instances, which are essentially
variables. MIBs provide status monitoring, provisioning and notification.
The Cisco CRS system supports these MIBs:
•
SYSAPPL-MIB—Provides system information, such as installed applications, application
components, product version, processes that are running, and process start time. For more
information, see SYSAPPL-MIB, page 2-2.
•
CISCO-VOICE-APPS-MIB—Contains information about supported SNMP traps. For more
information, see CISCO-VOICE-APPS-MIB, page 2-6.
•
CISCO-CDP-MIB—Provides information about device identifications, CDP (Cisco Discovery
Protocol) running status, CDP transmitting frequency, and the time for the receiving device to hold
CDP messages (time to live). For more information, see Cisco Discovery Protocol Support,
page 5-1.
Standard third-party MIBs, including:
– Standard Microsoft MIBs, such as MIB II
– Compaq Insight Agent MIBS for Compaq MCS 78xx platforms
– IBM UM MIB for IBM 3xx MCS platforms
SNMP Community Names authenticate access to MIB objects and serve as passwords for SNMP
information. A system can exchange SNMP information only with systems in the same community. For
more information on setting up communities, see Setting the SNMP Trap Receiver, page 2-7.
For additional information about MIBs, refer to this URL:

About Alarms
Alarms provide information about the Cisco CRS system activities. You can use this information to
monitor the status and the state of the system and to determine actions to take if a problem occurs. By
default, the Cisco CRS system also writes alarm information to trace files. You can use the information
in a trace file for further analysis of a problem.
Cisco CRS Alarm Service
The Cisco CRS Alarm Service is installed as part of the Cisco CRS installation process. It is a Windows
service that receives alarms about system events from the Cisco CRS Engine, Cisco CRS Node Manager,
Cisco CRS Administration, Cisco CRS Repository Datastore, Cisco CRS Historical Datastore, Cisco
CRS Config Datastore, Cisco CRS Agent Datastore, Cisco Recording, and Cisco Monitoring
components. These alarms are defined in XML format in files called catalogs. Catalogs are set up as part
of the Cisco CRS installation process.
Based on catalogs, the Cisco CRS Alarm Service forwards the alarms that it receives to one or more of
the following destinations:
•
Syslog Server—Forwards alarms as standard Syslog-format messages to CiscoWorks or any
third-party Syslog server. For related information, see CiscoWorks Support, page 1-2.

Step 3
Enter information in the fields under Alarm Service as follows:
Step 4
•
Alarm Server—IP address or name of the server on which the Cisco CRS Alarm Service is running.
By default, the Alarm Server is “localhost,” meaning that the Alarm Service is running on the Cisco
CRS server. You cannot change this information.
•
Alarm Server Port—Port on the Alarm Server to which alarm messages are sent. This information
is entered as part of the installation process. The default value is 1444. You cannot change this
information.
•
Catalog Directory—Directory in which the catalogs of alarm messages are stored. The default is
“catalog”. This information is entered as part of the installation process. You cannot change this
information.
•
Syslog Server Name—Enter the IP address or the host name of the Syslog server to which alarm
messages are be sent. If you are using CiscoWorks, enter the IP address or the host name of the
CiscoWorks server. If this field is blank, the system sends alarm messages to the Cisco CRS server.
•
Syslog Message Filtering Level—Click the drop-down arrow and choose the severity level of alarm
messages that you want sent to the Syslog server. Syslog messages range from severity 0 (most
severe) to severity 7 (least severe). When you choose a severity level, all messages of that severity
level and higher will be sent. For example, if you choose ERROR_ALARM (Severity 3), all
messages of severity 3, severity 2, severity 1, and severity 0 will be sent. The default is
“DEBUG_ALARM (Severity 7)”, which will send messages of all severity levels.
Click Update.
Viewing Alarm Messages
The way in which you view alarm messages depends on the destination to which messages were sent.
Each alarm message that you view will include an alarm name. To find information about the alarm name
that appears in an alarm message, see Alarm Definitions, page 3-5.

About Trace Files
A trace file is a log file that records activity from the Cisco CRS components. Trace files let you obtain
specific, detailed information about the system that can help you troubleshoot problems.
The Cisco CRS system can generate trace information for every component subfacility. This information
is stored in a trace file. To help you control the size of an trace file, you specify the component and
subfacilities for which you want to collect information and the level of information that you want to
collect.
The Cisco CRS system also generates information about all threads that are running on the system. This
information is stored in the thread dump trace file and is useful for troubleshooting.
Cisco Customer Response Solutions Servicing and Troubleshooting Guide, Release 5.0(1)

Trace
The Component Trace File
The Component Trace File
You can create a trace file for any of the following Cisco CRS components:
•
Cisco CRS Engine
•
Cisco CRS Administration
•
Cisco CRS Editor
•
Cisco CRS Node Manager
•
Cisco CRS SQL Server
The component trace file contains information about each of the component's subfacilities. To set up this
trace file, you perform the following general procedures:
•
Configuring the Component Trace File, page 4-2
•
Trace Level Options, page 4-3
For information about reading the trace file, see the Viewing and Interpreting the Trace Files, page 4-8
Configuring the Component Trace File
By default, the Cisco CRS system sends information about subfacilities toa trace file, for example,
CiscoMIVRnn.log. The system replaces nn with a number, starting with 01. You can configure the size
of the trace file. When the size you configured is reached, or if a Cisco CRS component is restarted, the
system creates a new trace file, incrementing nn by one. After creating the tenth trace file (by default),
the trace file begins overwriting existing files, starting with the first trace file created.
Note that the examples shown here are for the Cisco CRS Engine component. Follow the same
procedures for the other components, substituting the component's name.
To change any of these default trace file parameters, follow these steps:
Step 1
From the Cisco CRS Administration menu, choose System > Tracing.
The Trace Configuration page appears.
Step 2
Choose and expand a component from the navigation bar.
Step 3
Change the following information under Trace File as needed:
•
Trace File Output—Check this check box to send information to a trace file. Uncheck this box if you
do not want to send information to a trace file. By default, this check box is checked.
•
File Name—Enter the base name and the extension of the trace file. A trace file name is made up of
the base facility name, the file number, and the extension (for example, CiscoMIVR01.log). The
default file name is Cisco<facility_code>.log
where the <facility_code> could be MIVR, MCVD, MADM, MEDT, or MARC.
•
Number of Trace Files—Enter the number of trace files that the system will create before starting
to overwrite existing files. The system will create a new trace file each time the existing one reaches
the size specified in the Trace File Size field. The default number of trace files is 10.
•
Trace File Size—You can configure the file size, or you can enter the maximum size, in bytes, of the
trace file. The default files size is 1048576.

Trace Level Options
A trace file is a log file that records activity from the Cisco CRS component subsystems and steps. Trace
files let you obtain specific, detailed information about the system that can help you troubleshoot
problems.
The Cisco CRS system can generate trace information for every subfacility. This information is stored
in an engine trace file. To help you control the size of an engine trace file, you specify the subfacilities
for which you want to collect information and the level of information that you want to collect.
The Cisco CRS system also generates information about all threads that are running on the system. This
information is stored in the thread dump trace file and is useful for troubleshooting.
A trace file that records all information for a component, such as the Cisco CRS Engine, can become
large and difficult to read. To help you manage the trace file, the Cisco CRS system lets you specify the
subfacilities for which you want to record information. These subfacilities are shown in the following
table.
For each subfacility, you can select a trace level of Debugging, Alarm Tracing, both selections, or no
selections. These selections specify the messages that the system sends to a trace file. Table 4-1 shows
the effect of each trace level settings. For an explanation of message severity levels, see Cisco CRS
Alarm Service, page 3-1.

Explanation
The Trace Configuration pane groups trace level options into these lists:
•
Active trace level options—Facilities and subfacilities that are running on your system
•
Inactive trace level options—Facilities and subfacilities that are not running on your system
If you make a change under an active facility, the trace file will reflect your change immediately. If you
make a change under an inactive subfacility, the change will take effect when the subfacility becomes
active.

About the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP)
The Cisco CRS system uses the Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) to periodically send out CDP messages
to a designated multicast address. These messages contain information such as device identification,
interface name, system capabilities, SNMP agent address, and time-to-live. Any Cisco device with CDP
support can locate a Cisco CRS server by monitoring these periodic messages.
Using information provided through CDP, the CiscoWorks server discovers your Cisco CRS server and
the Campus Manager application Topology Services builds topology maps that display the CRS server
and other Cisco devices.
CDP is enabled on the Cisco CRS system by default. You must have the CDP driver enabled at all times
for CiscoWorks to discover the CRS server.
Note
The Windows 2003 CDP Protocol Driver is designed to run with Cisco CRS on a Cisco Media
Convergence Server (MCS) with a 10/100BaseT Ethernet network interface card under Windows 2003
Server. It does not support other media, such as Token Ring, ATM, or Windows NT platforms (including
Windows 98 or Windows NT 4.0).

Cisco Discovery Protocol Support
Using the CDP Driver
Using the CDP Driver
Starting a system on which Cisco CRS is installed enables the CDP driver. You can use CDP to allow
CiscoWorks to discover and manage your Cisco CRS systems.
CiscoWorks uses the CDP cache MIB of the direct neighboring device to discover the Cisco CRS server.
You can use CiscoWorks to query other Cisco CRS-supported MIBs for provisions or statistics.
Accessing CDP Driver Control
You can control the CDP driver using the CISCO-CDP-MIB.
Warning
Alter the CDP setting only in special cases. For example, you might restart the CDP driver from the
Control Panel at run time to pick up the latest IP configuration changes without resetting the system.
Installing the CDP Protocol Driver
The Cisco CRS installation process installs the CDP protocol driver. After completion of a successful
Cisco CRS installation, the CDP protocol driver resides in the list of device drivers under the Windows
Control Panel.

(WINNT\System32\Drivers\cdp.sys).
•
The CDP Interface Library (cdpintf.dll) updates to the Windows 2003 System32 directory
(\WINNT\System32\cdpintf.dll).
•
A Backup Regedit export file for reinstalling CDP registries updates to the bin directory (\Program
Files\Cisco\Bin\cdp2k101.reg). Use this file to restore the CDP registry in case it becomes
corrupted. This file restores the CDP registry to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\
CurrentControlSet\Services\CDP directory.

About Cisco Support Tools with Cisco CRS
Cisco Support Tools can help you manage and troubleshoot the Cisco CRS servers. Cisco Support Tools
is a suite of utilities, but not every utility in the suite is supported by Cisco CRS.
Cisco CRS supports two components of Cisco Support Tools:
•
Node Agent Service
The Node Agent Service is bundled with the CRS installer and is automatically installed on every
CRS machine when you install the CRS software.
•
Server
The Support Tools Server must be installed separately on a different machine. It provides a web
server and the Support Tools Dashboard user interface.
Accessing Cisco Support Tools
Although the Support Tools Node Agent Service is automatically installed with CRS, before you can
use it, you also need the Support Tools Server software. You must purchase the server software
separately from your Cisco Representative.
The documentation that provides instructions on how to use Cisco Support Tools can be found on the
Cisco website at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5905/tsd_products_support_series_home.html
When you purchase Support Tools from Cisco, the documentation is also included on the CD with the
Support Tools Server software.

CRS 4.5 profile name is missing
Symptom You are prompted to select the CRS 4.5 profile name during the 4.5 to 5.0 upgrade, but that
name is missing from the pulldown menu list during restore.
Error Message None
Possible Cause This can happen if an initial attempt to restore was unsuccessful due to the CRS Node
Manager abruptly shutting down or restarting. The CRS 4.5 profile name may have been migrated
to the 5.0 cluster ID (that is, a long number) during the restore attempt. However, because the CRS
Node Manager service abruptly shut down, the name itself remained migrated in the CCM table.
Recommended Action When prompted for the CRS 4.5 profile name, please choose the long integer
number from the menu pulldown list.
Page Not Found message is displayed during Restore or Upgrade
Symptom During Restore or Upgrade, the message "Page Not Found" is displayed.
Error Message Check the log in c:\program files\wfavvid\log\MCVD and search for
keyword 'reboot_on' for the error message.
Possible Cause Most likely, the CRS Node Manager has restarted during Restore or Upgrade due to an
abnormal shutdown. This can be checked if you see a new MCVD log file (in the c:\program
files\wfavvid\log\MCVD folder) created during the time of the restore or if you see that the CRS
Node Manager Service is no longer running.
Recommended Action
Step 1
Analyze the 'reboot_on' message to see which service went down. If this is intermittent issue, redo the
Restore by first doing the following two steps. Contact TAC if condition persists
Step 2

CME Telephony subsystem problems
Some RmCm configuration is missing after Upgrade
Symptom After the 4.5 to 5.0 Upgrade is successful, the system is missing some RmCm configuration
(that is, resource skills group, CSQ configuration, and so on).
Error Message None
Possible Cause This can happen when an Upgrade was initially triggered, but failed due to the CRS Node
Manager restarting in the middle of the Restore. During the successful attempt for Restore, the CRS
4.5 user profile name has already been changed to a long integer by the 1st attempt to Restore.
Recommended Action To reset the profileID = 1 for the default profilename, do the following:
Step 1
Open the SQL query analyzer and type the following:
a.
Run SELECT * FROM db_cra.dbo.profileIDMapping
You should see 2 records (one from 4.5 and the default for 5.0). Note the CRS4.5_profilename which
is NOT the default. You will need this.
b.
Run DELETE FROM db_cra.dbo.profileIDMapping where profileName='CRS4.5_profilename
Make sure you see 1 row affected in the result window after executing the preceding command.
c.
Run UPDATE db_cra.dbo.profileIDMapping SET profileID =1
Make sure you see 1 row affected after executing the preceding command.
Step 2
SELECT * FROM db_cra.dbo.profileIDMapping
Step 3
You should get only one record with profilename 'default' and profileID=1

Symptom Any media step except SendDigitString causes the following exception in the CRS trace files.
Error Message Could not create PlayPromptDialog Object:
Exception=com.cisco.channel.ChannelUnsupportedException: com.cisco.dialog.PlayPromptDialog is
not supported.
Possible Cause A Primary Dialog Group was not specified when a trigger was defined.
Recommended Action After you add an application in the CRS Application Configuration web page, you
must define a trigger. When you define a trigger for the application, you must define both a Call Control
Group and a Primary Dialog Group in the JTAPI Trigger Configuration window.
Unable to make any Unified CCX configuration changes
Symptom When trying to save Unified CCX configuration changes, CRS Administration shows an error
message.
Error Message There was an error reading/updating the database. Please contact your administrator.
Possible Cause All "CRS SQL Server - Config" services need to be IN-SERVICE in order to make
Unified CCX configuration changes. If one or more services are down, no Unified CCX
configuration update is allowed.

Possible Cause Currently, CAD supports only the G.711 and the G.729 codeces. If your codex setting is
different in the Cisco unified Communications Manager, for example, if your setting is G.722, then
you can experience these problems.
Recommended Action Make sure you have disabled "Advertise G 722 codex" on the agent phone and make
sure your settings in Unified CM are for the G.711 or the G.,729 codex. Although Unified CM 6.0
supports the G 722 codex, CAD does not.
Calls to Unified CCX route points are disconnected
Symptom Callers are disconnected when calling Unified CCX route points.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The CSQ parameter is not correctly defined in the Cisco Script Application web page.

Agents do not show in a CSQ
Symptom A CSQ is configured with a group of agents for Skill A and a group of agents for Skill B;
however, the agents do not show up in the CSQ.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause Agents do not have all the skill levels of the CSQ or the skill level of the agents do not
have equal or higher skill levels than that of the CSQ.
Recommended Action Verify that agents have all the skill levels of the CSQ and that the agents have equal
or higher skill levels than that of the CSQ.
Caller gets dropped when an attempt is made to recall a Unified CCX agent
extension after the agent previously parked the call
Symptom Agent A gets a Unified CCX call and parks that call. After the parked call times out, a recall
is attempted to the Agent A extension (if no other agent has picked up the call). If Agent A is busy
handling another call on that Unified CCX extension while the previously parked call is being routed,
the caller gets dropped.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause A parked call gets dropped if an attempt is made to place the call again to a busy line that
is not set with forward busy.
Recommended Action Configure the Unified CCX extension of Agent A withForward Busy to a
non-Unified CCX line on the same phone.
Also, configure this line as Forward Busy to the Unified CCX route point. When an attempt is made to
recall the Unified CCX extension of Agent A, the call is forwarded to the non-Unified CCX line if the
extension is busy. If the non-Unified CCX line is busy, the call is forwarded to the Unified CCX route
point and gets queued again instead of being dropped. You can set up the workflow of the Unified CCX
route point to increase the priority of the call.
Updating a NIC driver disables silent monitoring and recording
Symptom After updating a network interface card (NIC) driver, the Cisco Supervisor Desktop and Cisco
Agent Desktop Silent Monitoring and Recording features do not work.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause This problem can occur if you have updated a NIC driver on a server on which you
checked the VoIP Monitor Server check box during the installation of Cisco CRS.
Recommended Action Reinstall Cisco CRS. Make sure to check the VoIP Monitor Server check box in the
Component Distribution pane.

Cisco Unified IP IVR drops callers when transferring to an extension
Symptom After Cisco Unified IP IVR transfers a call to an extension, the called party hears a busy signal
when taking the call and the caller is dropped.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If a call gets dropped, one potential cause is a codec mismatch between the endpoint and
the CRS Server. The CRS Server supports either the G.729 or the G.711 protocol, but not both
simultaneously. To support these protocols, a transcoder is required.
Recommended Action Install a transcoder for Cisco Unified IP IVR.
Prompts play in language
Symptom A script was assigned to a language at the route point but it plays prompts in another language.

This problem can be caused by the following situations:
•
The system default language is set incorrectly.
•
The language specified in the Set Contact step is incorrect.
•
The language specified in the Play Prompt step is incorrect.

Some prompts do not play
Symptom A prompt in a script does not play. The script may or may not continue executing.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause A prompt is missing in the language directory for the language used by the script. By
default, the Play Prompt step is set to continue if it encounters an error and the script will continue
to play if it encounters a missing prompt. If you have changed the Play Prompt step to not continue
if it encounters an error, the script will stop executing.
Recommended Action Refer to the CRS trace files to find the missing prompt. Provide the missing prompt
in the language folder shown in the CRS trace files.
Some prompts in a script play in the language specified and other prompts play
in English
Symptom A script is set to a language other than US English, but some prompts play in US English.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause A prompt is missing in the language directory for the language used by the script. If the
default language for the script uses the same rules as US English, the system will automatically
replace the missing prompt with a US English prompt.
Recommended Action Refer to the CRS trace files to find the missing prompt and provide the missing
prompt in the language folder shown in the CRS trace files.
A prompt plays phrases in the wrong order
Symptom A prompt played by the Create Generated Prompt step plays the correct language but plays
phrases in the wrong order. For example, a prompt that you expect to play as “month, day, year” plays
as “year, month, day.”
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The Create Generated Prompt step is using incorrect rules for the language.
Recommended Action If creating a new language or adapting an existing language for a new locale, check
the PromptGenerator.properties file and make sure that it is using the correct rules for the language.

Symptom The user gets a warning message when uploading license files using CRS Administration.
The license file, <filename>, if uploaded will change the package from <existing license
package> to <new license package>. Please click OK to continue or CANCEL to abort.
Error Message
Possible Cause This warning is only displayed if a user tries to upload licenses which change the existing
license package of the CRS cluster to a different package.
Recommended Action The user needs to determine if he or she really wants to change the license package
as described in the warning message. If yes, clicking OK will change the package. If it was a user error,
clicking CANCEL will keep the license package unchanged.
User cannot log in to the CRS web page

Error Message None.
Possible Cause If a script is referenced in other scripts, refreshing a subflow script does not update its
parent scripts.
Recommended Action Manually refresh all parent scripts.
Unified Communications Manager users display in random order
Symptom On the CRS User Maintenance window, Unified Communications Manager users display in
random order when the number of users returned during the search is greater than 75.

Possible Cause The avgTalkDuration, avgWaitDuration, longestTalkDuration, longestWaitDuration, and
oldestContact database table fields in the RtCSQsSummary and the RtICDStatistics database tables
store date in milliseconds.
If you want to include information described by these fields on your wallboard, use the following fields,
which store the same information but use the HH:MM:SS format:
•
Instead of avgTalkDuration, use convAvgTalkDuration.
•
Instead of avgWaitDuration, use convAvgWaitDuration.

CRS Admin Utility Problems
The cluster is not in synchronization
Symptom The cluster is not in synchronization.
Error Message Rerun the CRS Admin Utility again to bring the cluster back into
synchronization.
Possible Cause This can happen due to a variety of reasons: The password setting or synchronization
failed in the middle of the process. The update was done on a bootstrap data store but not on a
Windows database. The update was done on one node but not on the second node.
Recommended Action Rerun the CRS Admin Utility again to bring the cluster back into synchronization.
CRS Admin Utility exits or does not come up after login.
Symptom CRS Admin Utility exits or does not come up after login.
Error Message None
Possible Cause
The CRS Admin Utility runs on a system where CRS has been properly installed and
configured.
Possible Cause Check the status of the configuration manager (and the bootstrap manager for both nodes,
if you have a two node system) from the CRS Admin control center.
Possible Cause The CRS Admin Utility needs to have the CRS configuration manager In_service for a
single node system or the CRS configuration manager and bootstrap manager In_service for a
multiple node system.
Recommended Action Properly install and configure the CRS system.
The CRS Admin Utility fails due to data corruption
Symptom The CRS Administration Utility fails due to data corruption.
Error Message None
Possible Cause The CRS Admin Utility fails when there is data corruption in the bootstrap data store.
Any process running on the node on which the Admin Utility is running and that has access to the
bootstrap data store can cause data corruption. For example, the Admin Utility, the CRS engine,
CONFINGAPI, and so on, many cause data corruption.
Recommended Action When the Admin Utility fails on one node due to data corruption, try to run it from
another bootstrap server node. If the Admin Utility fails agin, contact TAC.

The CRS server runs out of disk space
Possible symptoms are:
•
An out of memory error occurs on the CRS server.
•
Accessing purging or synchronization pages on the Administration UI returns an error.
•
Running historical reports returns SQL error 5048.
Error Message SQL error 5048.
Possible Cause The CRS database log files, the tempdb database, or the tempdb log files have grown
large.
Recommended Action There are two possible actions you can take:
Step 1
To manually shrink a CRS database log file, open a command window on the CRS server and type the
following commands:
osql -Usa -Ppassword -ddb_cra, where password is the password for the sa log in to the CRS database.
USE database_name, where database_name is db_cra.
GO
DBCC SHRINKFILE (database_name_log.mdf), where database_name is db_cra.
GO
Step 2
Alternatively, you can shrink the log files by running the batch file runTruncateHistDBLogs.bat,
installed under the wfavvid directory. Depending on the arguments, it shrinks the log files of db_cra or
tempdb.
Examples:
•
•
Truncate the log files for db_cra to 10MB:
runTruncatedHistDBLogs “sa” “sa_password” “db_cra_all” 10
•
Truncate the tempdb transaction log:
•
runTruncateHistDBLogs “sa” “sa_password” “tempdb”
Additional information can be found about truncating logs in the Managing Historical Reporting
Databases section of the Cisco CRS Administration Guide.

Chapter 8
Troubleshooting Tips
CRS Engine Problems
•
Trace settings include debugging.
•
Cisco Unified Communications Manager polling is enabled. (Polling is enabled by default, but it can
consume server resources.)
•
You are running many applications on a smaller system simultaneously. For example, you are
running Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and Cisco CRS Server, all on a low-end MCS.
Recommended Action Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Turn off debugging as a trace level option. Debugging consumes substantial server resources. Only use
debugging as a trace level option when you are actively debugging Cisco CRS.
Step 2
Turn CRS debugging off if the system is running BHCC higher then 4500.
Step 3
If you have a very high load with 300 agents, disable all the logs and traces.
Step 4
If you have very high load with 300 agents, you should redirect logs (for example Unified CM logs) to
a different drive where CRS and SQL is installed.
Step 5
Turn off Cisco Unified Communications Manager polling. Polling enables JTAPI (and therefore the
telephony applications that use JTAPI, such as CRS) to detect the addition of devices to an application
or user’s controlled list. For example, polling can detect when an agent is added to a call center or a CTI
port is added to the CRS Engine. If you do turn off polling, Cisco Unified Communications Manager
does not update new devices automatically. For example, you must restart the CRS Server after adding
a new CTI port or route point to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Step 6
If you are using a smaller system with many applications running at the same time, install the different
telephony applications on separate servers or use an MCS-7835.
Step 7
Defragment the hard disk at regular interval on the CRS machine if the load is very high.
Database Subsystem goes into partial service
Symptom The Database subsystem is in partial service when the Cisco CRS system is configured to use
a Sybase database.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If the Sybase datasource name that you enter in the Cisco CRS Administration Enterprise
Database Subsystem Configuration web page does not match exactly the datasource name in the
Windows ODBC DSN configuration window, the database connection will fail and the database will
go into partial service.
Recommended Action Be sure the Sybase datasource name on the Administration Enterprise Database
Subsystem Configuration web page matches the Windows ODBC datasource name.

Possible Cause The JTAPI client was not set up properly. At least one, but not all, of the CTI ports, route
points, or dialog channels (CMT or MRCP) could not initialize.
Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Refer to the CRS trace files to determine what did not initialize.
Step 2
Verify that all CTI ports and CTI route points are associated with the JTAPI user in Cisco Unified
Communications Manager.
Step 3
Verify that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager and JTAPI configuration IP addresses match.
Step 4
Verify that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager JTAPI user has control of all the CTI ports and
CTI route points.
Step 5
Verify that the application file was uploaded to the repository using the Repository Manager.
Unable to connect to JTAPI provider
Symptom The JTAPI provider is unavailable.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The problem might be caused by one of the following:
•
Cisco Unified Communications Manager is not running.
•
Incorrect JTAPI client version is installed on the CRS server.
•
JTAPI user is not configured correctly.
•
JTAPI client cannot communicate with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Recommended Action Depending upon the cause, do one of the following:
•
Troubleshoot the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (refer to Cisco Unified Communications
Manager Administration Guide).
•
Check the JTAPI version on the CRS server by selecting Start > Programs > Cisco JTAPI >
Readme.
•
From the CRS Administration web page, choose Subsystems > JTAPI, click the JTAPI Provider
hyperlink, and then verify that information in the User ID field matches the name of a valid user in
Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Verify that information in the Password field is correct.
•
Verify that Cisco Unified Communications Manager is running. Configure Cisco Unified
Communications Manager using the IP address instead of the DNS name.

Application subsystem in partial service and application running for an
unexpectedly long time
Symptom The Application subsystem is in partial service and the Application Tasks real-time report
shows an application running for an unexpectedly long time.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If an application does not receive a disconnect signal after a call, and the application does
not have an error handling mechanism to detect that the call has ended, the Application subsystem
might go into partial service. In addition, Application Tasks real-time report might show an
application running for an unexpectedly long time.
Recommended Action Make sure that the application script includes error handling that prevents infinite
retries if a call is no longer present.

Create a DSN to the db_cra database on the CRS server to which the client computer is attempting to
connect. Make sure the client computer and the CRS server have the same Administrator password.
While pointing the ODBC data source to the CRS server, use<crsServerNameOrIP>\CRSSQLwhere
crsServerNameOrIP is the named instance. For example, if your CRS server name is CiscoCRSserver1,
in the Server input box, type CiscoCRSserver1\CRSSQL. CRS uses NT authentication, so choose the
Windows NT authentication radio button.
Step 3
If the DSN cannot be created, verify that network connectivity exists between the CRS Historical
Reports client computer and the CRS server.
Step 4

Discrepancy in number of ACD calls shown on custom reports
Symptom When running user-created custom reports, one report shows the number of calls for each hour
of the day, totaling 244 calls. The other report shows the number of ACD calls for the entire report
period, totalling 243 calls. Such discrepancies happen for other days as well, the difference being as
many as four calls.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If some ACD calls are transferred, the result can be that two or more call legs fall in
different hours of the day. Therefore, the call is counted once in the first report and twice in the
second.
Recommended Action The software is working as designed. If this is not acceptable, you could
alternatively count call legs, instead of entire calls, and the totals on the first report and the second report
will match. Then “select count distinct sessionID” becomes “select count distinct (sessionID,
sessionSeqNum) pairs.” However, be advised that this would change the definition of counting calls for
the entire call center.
Priority Summary Activity Report chart prints only partly in color
Symptom The outer edges of the Priority Summary Activity Report pie chart print in color, but the middle
of the chart does not.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause This problem occurs when you print directly from the Cisco CRS Historical Report Client
Viewer and is related to the third-party printing driver from Crystal Decisions.
Recommended Action Export the report to PDF output or any other supported file format and print from
the output file.
Scheduled Historical Reports do not run and message appears in CiscoSch.log

Scheduler DOS exception error received when running a custom report
Symptom When running a custom report, the following error message appears in the
CiscoSchPrintExport.log file:
Error Message
ERROR Descripton=Dos error, thread in Export method=Exception.
Possible Cause The DOS error can occur when the database is not accessible from the client machine at

Troubleshooting Tips
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) Problems
Recognition never times out
Symptom While waiting for speech input, speech recognition waits indefinitely.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause This problem is caused by setting the initial timeout value to 0 (zero). The problem will
occur only if the ASR provider is Nuance. Nuance defines an initial timeout value of zero to mean
that it will never time out. Other vendors interpret this value to mean that it must time out
immediately.
Recommended Action If an immediate timeout is required, do the following: When using Nuance as the
ASR software provider, set the initial timeout value to the smallest value greater than 0 (zero). For other
ASR vendors, simply set the initial timeout to 0 (zero).
Alternate pronunciations and nicknames are not recognized
Symptom Alternate pronunciations and nicknames are not recognized in the Name to User step when
used in the ASR mode.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The Name Grammar Generator was not run after a new CRS installation or after you
added or changed a nickname or pronunciation in the user administration page.
Recommended Action Run the Name Grammar Generator.
Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Select Tools > User Management > Name Grammar Generation. (Run the Name Grammar Generator
at off-peak times.)
Step 2
Verify that you have select the correct Grammar Variant. If you use Nuance, select "Nuance." If you use

•
When configuring an MRCP ASR Provider, more than one MRCP ASR Server can be associated
with that Provider. Each server can support a different set of languages. For example, server A
supports en_US and server B supports es_ES. When configuring an MRCP Dialog Group in the
Provider that contains these two servers, you are provided with a list of Enabled Languages. For this
example, the list contains both en_US and es_US because there are servers for the specified provider
that support these languages.
•
Normally the user interface will prevent you from selecting both en_US and es_ES for the group
because neither server supports both languages; however, it is possible to create an illegal situation
if at least one of the servers starts out supporting all the languages installed. The UI will allow you
to select all languages for the group as well because there is at least one server in the Provider that
supports all languages. It is possible to go back to that server and remove support for one of the
languages. If you do this, the group is not changed and now needs a language combination that
neither server can provide.
•
To check for this, access the CRS Administration page for the group in question. Click Update. If
you see the message, There are no servers to satisfy this selection of languages, then you need to
change the languages selected to a set that is supported by at least one of the servers in the Provider.

Text-to-Speech (TTS) Problems
Provider becomes IN_SERVICE immediately
Symptom When creating as ASR/TTS provider, its status becomes IN_SERVICE immediately. This
happens even before creating any servers for it.
Error Message The ASR/TTS provider status incorrectly showsIN_SERVICE.
Possible Cause After deleting a provider and all the servers along with it, if a new provider is created, it
continues to use the previous configuration and does not get refreshed.
Recommended Action Click Refresh or Refresh All for that provider. This will cause the status of the
provider to go OUT_OF_SERVICE as expected.
A TTS Prompt will not play
Symptom Callers do not hear a TTS prompt when a TTS prompt is expected.
Error Message None.
The cause of the problem might be one of the following:
•
The language specified in the Override Language field in the TTS Prompt step is not available.
•
The text referenced in the Text Input expression is larger than 20 KB.
•
There are not enough MRCP TTS licenses for the MRCP TTS Provider that is being used. Licensing
can be implemented in different ways by different MRCP TTS vendors. It may happen that
depending on the licensing scheme of the vendor there may not be enough MRCP TTS licenses
configured for the language being used.
•
When using multiple TTS providers, each with a different set of supported languages, the
appropriate TTS provider (the one that supports the desired language) might not get used. This might
be because the provider is not selected as the Default TTS provider and therefore some other
provider might get used.
Recommended Action Depending upon the cause, do one of the following:
•
If the language specified is not available, from the CRS Administration web page, choose
Subsystems > MRCP TTS and check whether the MRCP TTS server for the Override Language is
configured. If it is not, configure a new MRCP TTS server with the desired language and then reload
the corresponding MRCP Provider.
•
Text larger than 20 KB is not allowed. Make sure that you are using less than 20 KB of text.
•
If necessary, obtain a license for additional MRCP TTS ports from the MRCP TTS vendor.
•
If the default TTS provider is not being used, configure the Default TTS Provider field using CRS
Administration. Go to System > System Parameters and select the desired TTS provider. Or using
the CRS Editor Create TTS Prompt step, explicitly specify the desired TTS provider in the Overrride
TTS Provider field. If using VXML scripts, specify the desired TTS provider for Nuance Vocalizer
3.0, and the configure it as follows:
•
<property name="com.cisco.tts.provider" value="Nuance Vocalizer 3.0"/>

Troubleshooting Tips
Text-to-Speech (TTS) Problems
A TTS prompt is not recognizable
Symptom A TTS Prompt cannot be recognized by callers.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The language of the text does not match the Override Language in the TTS Prompt step.
For example, the text is in English, but the Override Language is Spanish.
Recommended Action In the appropriate TTS Prompt step, make sure that the Text Input matches the
Override Language Selection.
MRCP TTS subsystem is out of service
Symptom The Engine Status area in the Engine web page shows that the MRCP TTS Subsystem is out
of service.
Error Message None.
The cause could be one of the following:
•
•
The MRCP Provider and Server are not configured from the MRCP TTS Configuration web page.
The MRCP TTS Server(s) is down or unreachable.
Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Verify that MRCP Provider and Servers are configured through the MRCP TTS Configuration web page.
Step 2
Verify that the MRCP TTS servers are up and reachable.
Long TTS prompts consume significant memory on CRS Server
Symptom Long TTS prompts consume significant memory on the Cisco CRS Server.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause Long text files will increase memory usage on the CRS Server. For example, a 5 KB text
file requires a 2.5 MB audio file. On a system with 40 TTS ports, this scenario can consume
approximately 120 MB of memory.
Recommended Action If you are using long text files, make sure to provision your system appropriately.

Chapter 8
Troubleshooting Tips
Text-to-Speech (TTS) Problems
Non-UTF-8 characters needed for some languages
Symptom When using TTS for some languages, such as French or Spanish, characters are needed that
are not in the UTF-8 character set. For example: ç,é or ñ if not handled correctly, will cause the TTS
server to generate an error message, and the prompt will not be heard.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause By default, most TTS engines expect to receive characters only in the UTF-8 character
set, which are generally only those characters that are in the ASCII character set. Some characters
in languages like French or Spanish do not belong to that set, such as ç,é or ñ. When such characters
are required the script writer must specify the appropriate encoding explicitly. For most languages,
use the ISO-8859-1 encoding, unless otherwise specified. TTS vendors document the different ISO
encodings required by their TTS engines for different languages.
Recommended Action In order to specify such encoding, you must use SSML markup; therefore, you
cannot use plain text. The following example shows how character coding can be specified:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<speak>
Buonas tardes. Le estoy hablando en español.
</speak>
This can be provided in a file or can be specified in a TTS text expression in a Workflow step. When
using the Expression Editor in the Workflow Editor, certain characters must be "escaped" in order to be
evaluated properly. Enter the same text as follows when specified explicitly in a text expression for TTS:
u"<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"ISO-8859-1\"?>
<speak>
Buonas tardes. Le estoy hablando en español.
</speak>
Recommended Action Note the use of theu"<text string>" syntax. That allows the use of the "\" escape
character within the string to escape the quote (") characters. You do not need to escape the non-UTF-8
characters such as theñ.
A .wav file prompt playback is garbled when played by a TTS server
Symptom A .wav file prompt playback is garbled when played out by a TTS server.
Note
Prompts specified in VXML scripts or prompts created using the workflow CreateTTSPromptStep are
played out using TTS. Such prompts can mix text with audio files. Cisco CRS supports wave file formats
with RIFF headers. For details on where prompts are played out, see the Cisco CRS Administration
Guide.
Cisco Customer Response Solutions Servicing and Troubleshooting Guide, Release 5.0(1)

Chapter 8
Troubleshooting Tips
Serviceability Problems
Error Message None.
Possible Cause Nuance TTS may be configured as the system default TTS provider, in which case, the
wave file prompt is played out by Nuance TTS. Nuance TTS does not support RIFF header wave
files.
Recommended Action Translate the RIFF header wave file into a Sphere header wave file using the utility
provided by Nuance. The utility can be found under the Nuance installation folder:
<$Nuance>V8.5.0\bin\win32\wavconvert.exe
Changes, additions, or deletions to MRCP TTS Providers, MRCP Servers,
locales, or genders do not take effect
Symptom Changes made to either MRCP TTS Providers, MRCP Servers, locales, or genders through
CRS Administration do not seem to take effect.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause When you make any configuration changes (including additions or deletions) to either
MRCP TTS Providers, MRCP Servers, locales or genders through CRS Administration, these
changes are made in the Config datastore and do not affect the data that is already loaded by the
engine. If you wish to make these changes effective immediately without having to restart the
engine, the changes need to be explicitly reloaded by the MRCP TTS Subsystem.
If you want the changes to take effect immediately without having to restart the engine, do the following:
Step 1
If you want to reload the data associated with a single MRCP Provider, Server, or associated locales and
genders, go to Subsystems > MRCP TTSto access the MRCP TTS Configuration web page and click
the refresh icon for the corresponding provider. You can also use this step to load a newly created MRCP
TTS Provider.
Step 2
If you want to reload all providers, go to Subsystems > MRCP TTS to access the MRCP TTS
Configuration web page and click Refresh All.

Serviceability Problems
SNMP-based network management tools cannot monitor CRS components
Symptom You are unable to monitor CRS components with SNMP-based network management tools,
such as CiscoWorks.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The SNMP subagents that monitor CRS components are not loaded or configured
properly, or the SNMP service is not running.
Recommended Action Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Make sure that each subagent has a key under the following SNMP service registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\Extensio
nAgents
Step 2
Make sure that the subagent DLL exists under the directory specified in the registry. For example, expect
the subagent SnmpSysAppAgent to have a registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\
Cisco Systems, Inc.\SnmpSysAppAgent\CurrentVersion and a path name that points to the location
of the SnmpSysApp subagent SnmpSysAppImpl.dll.
Step 3
Make sure that the SNMP service is running on the CRS server. If it is not, start the SNMP service.

Step 2
Double-click SNMP Services in the Name field.
Step 3
In the SNMP Service Properties window, click the Traps tab and make sure that you use the correct case
and name for the community name. Also, make sure that the IP address or host name of the trap
destination is correct.
Step 4
In the SNMP Service Properties window, click the Security tab and make sure that at least one
community name is defined and that its rights are READ ONLY or READ WRITE. Do not use “public”
community name as it might lead to security holes in your system. For more information about SNMP
security, refer to your Microsoft Windows documentation. Also, make sure that you use the correct case
for the community name.
Step 5
On the CRS server, choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and
verify that the SNMP service and Cisco CRS Alarm Service are running.
Step 6
On the CRS server, verify that the Cisco CRS Alarm Service is receiving messages:
Open the AlarmService.ini file and verify that the correct port number is listed. The default port is 1444.
Open the Alarm Service error logs, AlarmTracen.log, where n indicates the log number. (For example,
AlarmTrace11.log is the eleventh log.) By default, the error logs are in the following folder: C:\Program
Files\Cisco\AlarmService\ AlarmServiceLog.
Step 7
On the trap receiver (the NMS system) make sure that the same community names are defined in the
SNMP Service properties as you used in step 4. Make sure traps are enabled by verifying that the
cvaNotificationEnable table is set to true in the ciscoVoiceAppsMIB.
Syslog messages not received by receiver
Symptom Your Network Management System (NMS) does not receive Syslog messages.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause There is a misconfiguration in the service properties. For more information, refer to the

VXML Problems
Language specified is not accepted or played
Symptom A user specifies a language, but the software does not accept it or play the language entered by
the user.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If you are trying to use a prompt or recognition grammars, the problem might be that the
language was not successfully installed. Check the language and associated region in the ISO 639
and ISO 3166 standards. If the problem occurs with a Voice Browser, note that the VXML standard
specifies that languages be entered in the form xml:lang=”<ISO 639>-<ISO 3166>” (example:
en-US, fr-CA). Note that the VXML delimiter is a hyphen (-); for the CRS Editor, Application
Administration, locale customization, installation, and prompts, the separator is an underscore (_).
Recommended Action Check the language installation. Check the following ISO references for the correct
language and region representation:
•
ISO 639 can be viewed at:
•
http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/http/related/iso639.txt
•
ISO 3166 can be viewed at:

Step 1
Use CRS Administration to check to be sure subsystems are in service, such as CMT, JTAPI, MRCP
ASR, MRCP TTS, and Voice Browser.
Step 2
Make sure the Universal Resource Identifier (URI) is reachable by testing the URI in a web browser.
Step 3
Make sure the Provider selection is set correctly.
Step 4
If using VXML scripts, specify the desired TTS provider. For example, for Nuance Vocalizer 3.0, the
configuration is as follows:<property name="com.cisco.tts.provider"value="Nuance Vocalizer 3.0"/>

VXML Problems
Step 5
Make sure that VXML, grammar, and audio files are correct by validating each piece separately before
connecting them all together.
Step 6
Tracing subfacilities that are helpful in debugging the Voice Browser steps include: SS_VB,
SS_MRCP_TTS, SS_MRCP_ASR, and SS_CMT. See the Tracing chapter of this book for additional
information.
Step 7
Make sure the file fetching locations are reachable and correct.
Step 8
Check the syntax of the application by including VoiceXML DTD shipped with Cisco CRS.
Timeout attribute for non-input does not work
Symptom The timeout attribute when set to 0 causes VXML script execution to wait forever when run
with Nuance. Nuance implements a timeout of 0 by waiting indefinitely, which is not compliant with the
VXML specification.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause Using timeout=0, for example,
<form id="form1"><property name="timeout" value="0s"/> <field name="myField">
<prompt count="1"> No input expected. Say nothing </prompt>
Recommended Action Using a timeout of 1 ms will effectively provide the behavior expected by the
VXML specification; that is,
<property name="timeout" value="1ms"/>
Menu Choice DTMF does not work
Symptom An error.badfetch is thrown when using the menu element of Voice XML 2.0 with the DTMF
attribute set toTrue.
Error Message error.badfetch
Possible Cause When the menu element is set to true; that is, <menu dtmf="true">, then in the choice
element, DTMF values can only be *,#, or 0. For example, the following VXML code is not allowed:
<menu id="aa" dtmf="true">
<prompt> Welcome to the automated attendant. To enter the phone number of the
person you are trying to reach, press 1. To enter the name of the person you
are trying to reach, press 2. To transfer to the operator, press 0. </prompt>

Troubleshooting Tips
High Availability and Failover
Conflicts in Datastore Control Center history
Symptom With high availability, messages appear in the comment column in the subscription agent
history. To see the message from CRS Administration, select Datastore Control Center > History for
a subscription agent.
Error Message A message similar to Downloaded 111 data changes (0 inserts, 111 updates, 0
deletes, 111 conflicts)appears.
Possible Cause To support high availability, SQL merge replication is being used to replicate data
between the subscriber node and the publisher. As part of this, SQL logs these messages in the
subscription agent history.
Recommended Action No user action required.
Cannot make configuration changes in HA cluster
Symptom Unable to make configuration changes in a high availability cluster when one node is down.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause If one node is down, configuration changes cannot be made because the changes are
written to both configuration datastores at the same time.
Recommended Action Do the following:
Step 1
Make sure that the Publisher is the active node. If it is not, use CRS Administration to make it the active
node for all datastores.
Step 2
Deactivate CDS and HDS for the inactive node using the Component Activation link.
Cannot make configuration changes in RmCm Subsystem
Symptom In a high availability deployment, the user cannot make changes to the configuration in the
RmCm subsystem, such as add/remove skills, team and so forth.
Error Message
There was an error reading/updating the database. Please contact your administrator.
Possible Cause Unified CCX stores configuration data in Configuration Datastore, which is managed by
the Microsoft SQL database. The high availability databases use Microsoft Distributed Transaction
Coordinator (MS DTC) service to communicate with each other, and MS DTC service uses the
NetBIOS name of its peer to talk to other MS DTC services. This problem is caused by invalid name
resolution of the database nodes so that MS DTC cannot communicate.
Recommended Action Make sure the two database nodes can communicate with each other, not just by IP
address, because DTC also requires that you are able to resolve computer names by way of NetBIOS or
DNS. You can test whether or not NetBIOS can resolve the names by using ping and the server name.
The client computer must be able to resolve the name of the server, and the server must be be able to
resolve the name of the client. If NetBIOS cannot resolve the names, you can add entries to the
LMHOSTS files on the computers.

You can download DTCPing.exe from Microsoft to troubleshoot the MS DTC issue. Go to:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;250367.
Service constantly shows Invalid
Symptom The CRS Node Manager cannot start a service, and the service is shown "Invalid" from CRS
Administration.
Error Message A red X mark displays beside the service in CRS Administration.
Possible Cause This could possibly be caused by excessive failures of the specific service.
Recommended Action Refer to the Cisco CRS Installation Guide for help in doing a recovery or a restore
in order to repair the failed service.
CRS server keeps rebooting due to CRS Node Manager failure
Symptom The Cisco CRS server keeps rebooting due to the Cisco CRS Node Manager service failure.
Error Message A Microsoft Windows message shows a server reboot in 60 seconds due to
the service failure.
Possible Cause The problem might result from a variety of reasons, such as from failures of the CRS
Engine, CRS Administration, Datastore, and Desktop services.
Recommended Action Complete the following steps:
Step 1
Go to the Windows Services Control Panel. Under the Recovery tab, change First/Second/Subsequent
failures action toTake No Action.
Step 2
Look at the Cisco MCVD log first to identify the failure service; then go to the log of that service to find
the reason.
Step 3
After you correct the failure, restore the failure recovery action back to First failure: Restart the Service;
Second failure: Reboot the Computer; Subsequent failures: Reboot the Computer.
Cluster is in partial service
Symptom The CRS cluster status shows PARTIAL_SERVICE from the CRS Administration Control
Center.
Error Message PARTIAL_SERVICE on CRS Administration Control Center web page under a
specific server link.
Possible Cause At least one of the servers show a status that is not IN_SERVICE.
Recommended Action Log on to the server and see whether or not the Cisco Node Manager service is
running on the server. Also check the MCVD log for any additional information.

Server is in partial service
Symptom The CRS server shows PARTIAL_SERVICE from the CRS Administration Control Center.
Error Message PARTIAL_SERVICE on the CRS Administration Control Center web page
under a specific server link.
Possible Cause At least one service is not IN_SERVICE.
Recommended Action From the CRS Administration Control Center web page, complete the following
steps:
Step 1
If a service is not IN_SERVICE, go to the log of that service to find the reason.
Step 2
If a service is marked Invalid, refer to the tip Service constantly shows Invalid.
CRS does not accept call or function properly
Symptom The Cisco CRS system does not accept a call or function properly.
Error Message From the CRS Administration Control Center, under a specific server
link, there is neither CRS Engine nor CRS SQL Server
(Config/Historical/Repository/Agent).
Possible Cause One possible cause could be that the component is not activated.
Recommended Action Go to the CRS Administration web page to activate the appropriate component.
Service Master/Slave status is not shown on CRS Administration Control
Center
Symptom There is no Master or Slave status for a service on the CRS Administration Control Center web
page.
Error Message There is no Master or Slave icon next to a service.
Possible Cause The problem could be caused by one of the following:
•
The service is not started.
•
A dependent service is not started. For example, the Cisco Desktop Service does not show
Master/Slave status unless the CRS Engine is running, and the Cisco SQL Server
(Config/Historical/Repository/Agent) does not show Master/Slave status unless the Microsoft
Distributed Transaction Coordinator or the Microsoft SQL Agent is running.
Recommended Action Start the dependent service.

Troubleshooting Tips
VoIP Monitor Problems
Cluster time synch fails
Symptom The cluster time on the CRS machines (on the same cluster) is not synchronized with the
Unified Communications Manager.
Error Message The Network Time Protocol Service on the CRS machine exits with a
message in the event log stating that the time difference is greater than the
threshold.
Possible Cause The NTP service has a built-in threshold of 1000 seconds. If the time difference between
the NTP client (CRS machines) and the server (Cisco Unified Communications Manager) is more
than this threshold, the NTP service does not correct the time.
Recommended Action Do the following:
•
Manually set the clock on each CRS machine in the cluster. The Time on the CRS machines should
be approximately the same as the time on the Unified Communications Manager machine.
•
Restart the Network Time Protocol service on the CRS machines, using the Service Control
Manager.
CRS Servers respond slowly in HA environment
Symptom CRS servers in a high availabilitly (HA) environment respond very slowly. Because of the slow
response time, the CRS system is unusable. No calls can get to agents.
Error Message LDAP error 51 in MADM logs. SDL and SQL errors on the Subscriber.
Possible Cause Publisher and Subscriber databases are no synchronized.
Recommended Action Synch up the Publisher and Subscriber databases.
Multilple failovers with high CPU usage
Symptom Multiple failovers occur in a high availability environment and there is high CPU usage on both
servers. When the CRS server boots up, the primary server begins to spike the CPU usage causing the
primary server to be unusable, and it fails over to the secondary server. The secondary server then starts
the same behavior and eventually fails back over to the primary server.
Error Message None.
Possible Cause The problem can be caused by errors in the customer Java steps.
Recommended Action Check for custom Java steps in the scripting and remove them.

Possible Cause The VoIP Monitor is not on the agents' phones Voice VLAN.
Recommended Action If the VoIP Monitor is installed on CRS, see the Appendx on using multiple NICs
with VoIP in the Cisco CAD Installation Guide at Cisco Unified Contact Center Express Install and
Upgrade Guides web site. CRS 5.0 supports only an on-board VoIP Monitor.
CRS fails to start
Symptom CRS node manager fails to start
Error Message None
Possible Cause There are two NICs on the CRS server. The second NIC is used for VoIP Monitoring
To understand the situation:
Step 1
In Windows 2003, select Start > Settings > Network Connection.
Step 2
Click the Advanced drop down menu.
Step 3
Select Advanced Settings > Adapters and Bindings.
Step 4
In the Connections window, note that the VoIP Monitr NIC is higher in the order.
Recommended Action Set the VoIP Monitor NIC to have a the lower priority than the NIC used by CRS
for communication.
