    Hi Everyone,

    Three different sets of Aastra phones + Elastix (latest verison) don't flash the MWI LED. I have never had this problem with Aastra phones and other flavours of Asterisk but it's only with Elastix. Where should I look for trouble on the phone set and on Elastix? I am pretty sure it's do with Elastix.

    Thanks

    Depends on how they are provisioned but as long as you have

    sip line1 vmail: *98

    either in the local phone or the <mac>.cfg file if using tftp/ftp/http/https

    it will work, I believe both the the Elastix endpoint provisioning and the Aastra XML stuff will do that for you

    Thank you. I see the MWI options in Global SIP and Line 1 page. One might think these should be checked marked by Aastra firmware by default.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    I am revisiting this because apprently the problem was not solved. These phones are not provisions by TFTP/HTTP but rather have the configuration done through their own Admin UI.

    Here is what I have for Global SIP:
    Advanced SIP Settings:
    Explicit MWI Subscription Enabled
    Explicit MWI Subscription Period 86400
    MWI for BLA account Enabled
    Missed Call Summary Subscription Enabled
    Missed Call Summary Subscription Period 86400
    AS-Feature-Event Subscription Enabled
    AS-Feature-Event Subscription Period 86400
    Send MAC Address in REGISTER Message Enabled
    Send Line Number in REGISTER Message Enabled


    Line 1:
    Advanced SIP Settings
    Missed Call Summary Subscription Enabled
    AS-Feature-Event Subscription Enabled


    The Led works for incoming calls but not for Voicemail. "voicemail show users" shows NewMsg in list but LED for Aastra won't stay on or it won't flash.

    Please help me debug this. Thanks.

    P.S. since this phone is not provisioned where would the

    "sip line1 vmail: *98"

    go on the phone admin UI? I don't see any place. Users currently have a speed-dial softkey assiged to *97.

    FIXED! - Mailbox had to be set @default rather than @device at extension level on FreePBX.
    Pitty Elastix can't have done this by default.
