Ims tips and hints cont

IMS Tips and Hints (Cont)

  • If clients are having problems connecting to the IMS server or synchronizing On the client machine:

    • Make sure the Mailbox name you are using is exactly what is in the "Name" section of the user form in Manager. It is case sensitive so John Doe and john doe are not the same.

    • Make sure when you installed the client you gave the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the VMPro/IMS server and you may need to put an entry in the hosts and lmhosts with the #PRE option in the lmhosts.

    • Use ping to verify you can resolve the VMPro/IMS server.

    • Try removing the client, reboot and reinstall it and verify that these are put in correctly then check the dcomcnfg settings.


Ims tips and hints cont1

IMS Tips and Hints (Cont)

  • On the VMPro/IMS server:

    • Verify that you are using the proper account to start the IMS and VMPro services.

    • During the install you will be asked for the name of the user that Voicemail Pro and IMS services will use to start, specify the user the administrator created for you, i.e. In this case “IMSAdmin”. This should be an account with a password that never expires.

    • It is not recommended to use Administrator. It must be a domain account with and Exchange Email mailbox not a local account and it must have at least local admin rights on the PC or domain admin rights.

    • Check to see if the Outlook account is setup correctly by making sure it can send and receive email.

IMS Tips and Hints (Cont)

  • On the VMPro/IMS server:

    • Check the event viewer and look for any UMServer errors in Application and any errors in the System section that may indicate a general problem.  

    • Stop and start the VMPro and IMS services and see if you get any new errors.

    • Right click on the Voicemail Pro service and choose restart and answer yes to restarting the IMS Gateway and IMS Voice services.

    • Go to Windows Control Panel and run the "IP Office Voicemail Pro" control panel applet and verify the Voicemail Pro/IMS server machine name is correct in the Path Settings and the account is the proper account, i.e. “IMSAdmin” for example. You should be able to browse and find the IMSAdmin email account you are using here.

  • NOTE: If at this point you cannot successfully browse for an email account then there is a problem with the MAPI client on your PC and IMS will not work. You may have to uninstall Outlook, reboot and reinstall Outlook.


Ims tips and hints cont4

IMS Tips and Hints (Cont)

  • On the VMPro/IMS server:

    • Run the IMS Administration Tool and verify that the mailboxes have been setup properly. Un-assign then reassign them and verify that you can  browse and find the email and NT login accounts, do not just type them in. A typing error can cause IMS not to function properly.

    • Next synchronize the mailbox by right clicking and choosing Synchronize on the Voice Mailbox. Next go into the event viewer and check for new errors.

    • Reboot the VMPro/IMS server and make sure it comes up without errors and starts all the services.


Ims tips and hints cont5

IMS Tips and Hints (Cont)

  • On the VMPro/IMS server:

    • Make sure you have not tried to run the IMS Client installation executable on the VMPro/IMS. This will cause corruption and you will have to uninstall and reinstall VMPro and IMS.

  • Questions you should ask yourself:

  • Are any client machines able to connect?

  • If you have installed only one client try installing the client on more machines.

  • If none of the clients can connect problem is most likely a problem on the server. If one or more can connect the problem is most likely on the client.
