Last week, I was deploying a new CME with some 7821 IP phones with some 8861 IP phones for the executivess.
However, I faced a problem regarding the corporate directory on those new SIP IP phones.
Phones were stating “Host not found”.
I searched around forums and blogs but didn’t find anything helpful.
As soon as I added the following three commands, the corporate directory worked.
CME(config)#ip http server
CME(config-telephony-service)#url directories http://CME-IP-Address/localdirectory
Following this, the Corporate directory worked like a charm! Yes it doesn’t mean anything to use “telephony-service” which is supposed to be used in case we have Skinny phones. Well not.
Don’t forget to save your config! “wr” 😉
