Today is Sunday. I am building Asterisk 18.9 from source patched with cisco call manager features. See this website for more details: https://usecallmanager.nz/patching-asterisk.html
I’m doing this on a proxmox Linux ubuntu container. This is so I can get my Cisco 9971 phones to work with Cisco call manager features like voicemail button support and BLF (busy lamp field). Why am I doing this? Well, my Cisco phones have been laying dormant for many months while my gaze has been elsewhere. On a lark I plugged them back in and low-and-behold I had 5 voicemail messages. All were from my healthcare service provider trying to sell me stuff. I deleted all the voicemails but it got me thinking that the voicemail button doesn’t work and that’s a shame — I can fix that. Anyways, this is my attempt to fix by building Asterisk from source in a Linux container that has been patched from usecallmanager.

Hi, did yo make BLF working with 9971? what to put in line button section?
some number to monitor?
Not yet. I’m still learning. BLF is Busy Lamp Field/Flag. I haven’t configured it yet. My main focus isn’t BLF but really to have the voicemail messages button work on the 9971.
