CM to CUE Voicemail problem

scenario #
CM -> Gatekeeper -> CME -> CUE

When CUCM user calls CME User and reaches voicemail, the call fails. they get a fast busy tone.

I had a look to see whether it was transcoding, but it wasnt

CME#sh scc connections

Total number of active session(s) 0, and connection(s) 0

i came to the realisation that the incoming dial-peer was negotiating a codec,

dial-peer voice 2300 voip
translation-profile incoming in
voice-class codec 2
incoming called-number .

voice class codec 2
codec preference 1 g729r8
codec preference 2 g711ulaw

in this case it negotiated inbound to g.729.

Since CUE is g711, here it is supposed to invoke a transcoder, but it wasnt

when i removed the voice-class codec call was successful

dial-peer voice 2300 voip
no voice-class codec 2

In summary, i dont know if this is a bug or something, but once the codec has been “negotiated” the CME fails to invoke the transcoder. By removing the codec negotiation, the transcoder was invoked and call was successful
