J179 Resiliency?

J179 Resiliency?

J179 Resiliency?

Hi guys,

how Can i set resiliency for J179 SIP phones?
got an IPO SE R11 with IPO500v2.

In the document it says SIP domain needs to be the same. but does this require to do anything to FQDN (System>LAN>Voip) or the DNS server?


RE: J179 Resiliency?

SIP domain is the part behind @ in your SIP URI. SIP FQDN is the host name of the call server.

Domain has to be the same over all nodes while the FQDN has to be individual per system. The phone connects to the FQDN and uses the SIP domain to authenticate and to place calls.

You can use IP addresses as FQDN but you should better use a DNS resolvable host name.

Thank you for your response,

so what i got is,
I will set the same sip domain for all IPO systems. Lets say: SIP.COM
then every system will has its own FQDN: ( server1.SIP.COM and IPO500.SIP.COM ) >> this will be resolved by the DNS server.
then i go on J179 and set FQDN to point to the main server = server1.SIP.COM and in the Proxy server i set it to be SIP.COM

This way if the main server goes down, it will register to the backup automatically, Right?

I am no using the auto-generated 46xxsettings by the way!

Thanks again :)

RE: J179 Resiliency?

I just remembered that in J179 SIP Proxy tab we can only use IP address

RE: J179 Resiliency?

The autogenerated 46xxsettings.txt should provide the needed information automatically. I guess it must be enough to tell the phones the SIP domain (SIP.com) and the username (extension) together with the password. And you have to setup the FQDNs as primary and secondary call server.
