Dear All,

On most of the calls we are getting E121700.
Supervision showing error msg as "Service Observation failed-no recording(1450)".

Is there any relation of service observation failed and E121700 ?

we have sniffed the Cisco IP phones VLAN on to logger sniffer  port. Both ports are 100 MBPS full duplex.

Able to see incresing received count on span_NIC .

Kindly advice to restore the system i.e recording to normal..

Ver. 8.9
Integration: Geotel
Phones : Cisco IP Phones with G.711 codec set

Thanks in advance...

RE: E121700

check the logger mapping and also span port.

Run ethereal to see if logger is recieving RTP packets.

E121700 is

E12 voice logger
1700 no audio

RE: E121700

We have checked the network delay and found around 11ms delay is there in between phone and logger.

only 7 to 8 extesions calls are tagged as E121702...Rest of the recording is fine....

So how we can minimize or completely achive the recording for  those 7 to 8extensions....

Limitation : reducing the delay is challenging task for us ...system is very very old....  

Kindly suggest...

RE: E121700


Can you tell me if you are using static mapping or dynamic mapping in logger definition tool ?

What type of call are labelled E121702 are they internal/outbound/inbound ?


RE: E121700


We have Dynamic mapping. In logger configuration 60 VOIP channels are configured, Device type as Station.

We have schduler based recording. So according to schedular the calls are tagged as E121702. so in short internal/outbound/inbound calls tag as E121702.

RE: E121700

kindly find the related logs of failure recording:
