Description:Accessing VoiceMailMain from certain channel types results in a loud squeal or other burst of noise prior to the voicemail greeting.


Refer to http://www.lambda-solutions.de/bugs, bug number 6.
On a Cisco 7960 the sound is a high-pitched squeal lasting approx 1/3 second.
On the Firefly softphone (IAX2), the sound is much the same, but a bit more like a sharp bell-strike.
The problem occurs accessing voicemail on my own Asterisk box, as well as the voice mail system at Firefly.

A bugnote from the bug report on www.lambda-solutions.de/bugs:
"As I know VoiceMail module tries to do ADSI programming as it starts, so you can listen some tones on Zap phones. My suggestion is when you uses low bit-rate codecs (like G.723.1/G.729), you can listen loud squal sounds due to phase distorsions of original (un-encoded) signal (at least I had listen those tones at DISA when dial tone switches to reorder tone after timeout). High-rate codecs (G.711) doesn't produce any unwanted sounds at the same conditions."

I do not get this trouble on Zap channels, or on a SIP phone (I use GSM codec on my SIPs).

Can VoiceMailMain be made aware to only try and send ADSI to Zap channels?

This is not a bug.  You can talk to other ADSI devices over channels (e.g. Skinny and IAX).  I'll mark this as a feature request that adsi be able to be disabled on skinny channels.

Just try to add
 tmp->adsicpe = AST_ADSI_UNAVAILABLE;
to chan_skinny.c at function skinny_new() (somewhere around tmp->type = type line). This would help. But for real usage this parameter must be configurable per device/line.

May be to change this "feature request" to allow common method of endpoint menus/softkeys programming by ADSI (for analog lines) or Skinny (for SCCP phones)? At least Cisco-7960 have big display with 4 softkey buttons and allow to have some sort of menus...

Any update on this?

PCandach you can't od anything with ADSI on a 7960.  You might on an ATA with SCCP firmware.
