Description:When attempting to use GR-303 between Asterisk and the UMC1000 I am having difficulty. Occasionally the TMC channel (24) will come up on both the asterisk side and the UMC side.  The EOC channel (12) never comes up on the UMC side.  Asterisk does not seem to have any references  to the EOC (other than in libpri).

The asterisk box under pri intense debug will continuously display the following message:

> Unnumbered frame:
> SAPI: 01  C/R: 1 EA: 0
>  TEI: 000        EA: 1
>   M3: 3   P/F: 1 M2: 3 11: 3  [ SABME (set asynchronous balanced mode extended) ]
> 0 bytes of data
Sending Set Asynchronous Balanced Mode Extended    

I also get the debug message below occasionally:

 == Primary D-Channel on span 2 down
Dec 11 13:27:24 WARNING[13477]: chan_zap.c:1941 pri_find_dchan: No D-channels available!  Using Primary on channel anyway 48!

Asterisk configuration file snippets and umc1000 configs attached.

Update your libpri and try again.

The TMC channel seems to come up now.  The EOC Channel still doesn't come up.

When I make an inbound call about 50% of the time I get a disconnect and the other 50% of the time I get ringing from the calling device.  The gr303 end point does not ring however (though I can pick the phone up and answer it).

when trying to dialout from the gr303 endpoint I seem to be getting this error quite a bit:

Dec 13 10:30:56 WARNING[26693]: chan_zap.c:5780 handle_init_event: Don't know how to handle ring/answer with signalling GR-303 Signalling with FXOKS on channel 46

Dec 13 10:38:04 WARNING[26957]: chan_zap.c:5780 handle_init_event: Don't know how to handle ring/answer with signalling GR-303 Signalling with FXOKS on channel 47

I resolved the issue with an audible ringing tone.  Now we are just dealing with the fact that inbound calls to the gr303 group from asterisk to the umc only complete some of the time and usually end like this:

-- Executing Dial("Zap/23-1", "Zap/1:7") in new stack
   -- Called 1:7
   -- Accepting call from '9897206000' to '9897201122' on channel 0/23, span 1
   -- Zap/1:7-1 is ringing
   -- Zap/1:7-1 answered Zap/23-1
   -- Attempting native bridge of Zap/23-1 and Zap/1:7-1
   -- Hungup 'Zap/1:7-1'
 == Spawn extension (inbound, 9897201122, 1) exited non-zero on 'Zap/23-1'
   -- Hungup 'Zap/23-1'

So it appears that the call is answered, though I am not actually answering it.

It would appear from your debug that your switch is placing "answered" signalling on the line.

By: collinr (collinr) 2004-12-14 15:41:23.000-0600

I am reading this "answer" as being some sort of signalling anomaly in the signalling between the UMC and Asterisk.  I do have 4 options for switch type on my GR-303: 5ESS, DMS, EWSD, and GTD5.  I have tried all of them with similar results.

Does this bug persistent with latest CVS?

collinr: your response is reqested - is this still an issue?

By: collinr (collinr) 2005-01-10 08:30:53.000-0600

This is still an issue.  I believe Mark was going to work on it after his return from his holiday vacation.

This bug has been sleeping for a month... Anyone else than Mark that can fix this, we can't place everything on his shoulders? Creslin?

This should go ahead and get moved to digium tech support whenever you're ready to try again.
