Media gateways G450 consultation

Media gateways G450 consultation

Media gateways G450 consultation

Hello and happy new year to everyone!

I needed to know if there is any configuration that could be done on media gateways (G430 and G450) That makes them check if the primary CM is active after certain time.

Lets say that there is an incident on the night and the media gateways enter automatically on survival mode. is there any way that after X hours it checks if the main CM is up and it registers to it?

Thank you


RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

A gateway always knows if/when the core is available again. When/if it reregisters is based on your mg recovery rules set in CM.


RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

From CM: 'change system-parameters mg-recovery-rule X'
Then apply that rule the MG via command: 'change media-gateway X'

RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

And the phones registed on the LSP will register to the primary too?

Thanks for that useful info!

RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

When an LSP no longer has any gateways registered to it, it then disallows phones from registering to the LSP which forces them back to the MAIN.


RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

But this works? I mean we have checked the configuration on our system and it seems configured correctly it is on "immediately" and applied to the media gateway.

But we see that the gateways remain on LSP mode (Which is not a problem but they can't call other users outside the site)and it don't go to the primary server.

Also I'm mounting a test lab to try this.


RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

yes it works, lol. post a shot of your "disp media X" showing us the rule is assigned, then a shot of "disp sys mg-rec x" to see when they are set to migrate back and what the stability timer is set to.


RE: Media gateways G450 consultation

Could also be due to how your transition point is set up on the gateway but let's look at your CM config first.
