Description:I am using Asterisk with FreePBX 2.6. However I have seen this same issue when testing Asterisk When calling a user with multiple devices, a ring group, etc I get the following warning for every SIP device that is not registered.

WARNING[5287] app_dial.c: Unable to create channel of type 'SIP' (cause 20 - Unknown)

If the device is not registered why fill the logs with this message? Or at least make the message say that the device is not registered.

I have a softphone SIP device for every user and a main line ring group that includes all the users. When the main line rings my log fills with a hundred of these messages. When a user is called that doesn't have the softphone open I get this message as well.

The message is accurate. If you don't want to see those WARNING messages, then don't call devices that are not available.
