CM Configuration for RingLeader

 CUCM Version


There are a few default settings that need to be changed in the CUCM configuration for the SBC to function properly.  This is meant to document these changes.


Service Parameter Changes:

Under System/Service Parameters/<CUCM Server>/Cisco CallManager (Active)/

Under Clusterwide Parameters (Device-SIP)

SIP Rel1XX Enabled – Change to “True

“This parameter determines whether all SIP provisional responses (other than 100 Trying messages) get sent reliably to the remote SIP endpoint. If this parameter is disabled, Cisco CallManager does not acknowledge or confirm 18X messages. Valid values specify True (acknowledge 18X messages with PRACK) or False (do not acknowledge 18X messages with PRACK).” – Copied from context sensitive help in CUCM
