Remotely disable Modular Messaging ports?

Remotely disable Modular Messaging ports?

Hi all,

Running Modular Messaging 5.2 with Exchange back end. Is it possible to enable/disable the ports on the MAS remotely? Through WMI or SNMP?

Looking to script our outage windows to handle automatic port management.


RE: Remotely disable Modular Messaging ports?

Maybe with your CM wizardry you can just busy the voicemail trunk instead ;)
Depending on MM release, you might have dialogic cards/hardware for PRI, or H323 trunking or SIP. AFAIK, there's nothing really scriptable in that regard except maybe stopping the MAS Service in windows if you wanted to work with that.

RE: Remotely disable Modular Messaging ports?

Haha, yes I'm using OSSI to busy out the trunks already. As we understand it, Modular Messaging will still try to send MWI sets through the MAS and it will still do it if the trunk is busied out. So this left us with lights that were out of sync.

So for maintenance, we have to busy the trunks AND disable the ports. It'd be nice to do both tasks with 1 click since we have to do it a few times a month with Microsoft Patching.

RE: Remotely disable Modular Messaging ports?

Why would having the MWI still work make the lights out of sync ? If it is then you have other issues that you may want to look at.

If you have 2 MAS's and the service is running on only one of them as it should then it has the single point of reference for the MWI.

You could also busy the signal group to stop everything to the MAS.

Let's say the trunk group members are busied out to MAS 2. And MAS 2 is now trying to set the light. The light won't get set because the trunk members are busied out - however MM thinks the light is set. That's where it gets out of sync.

What type of integration is it ?
