Supported Operating Systems

The operating systems supported by this release are listed in the Contents, above.

New in This Release

This is a hot fix for this product. This release contains no new features or functionality.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following correction and modification:


For calls in Progressive ASM mode, if there is no CPD Server that already has an engaged agent available for the call, CPD Proxy now responds with General Error. Previously, in rare cases, when notification about the established engaged calls were delivered to CPD Server with a delay, the CPD Proxy might not have had information about the engaged agents, which in some cases caused the requests for outbound calls to not be delivered to the proper CPD Server. In this scenario, if the hit ratio was close to 100%, calls might have been dropped because no engaged agents were available. (OUTBOUND-8063)

Release Number 8.0.001.04 [10/17/11] – Hot Fix

Supported Operating Systems
New in This Release
Corrections and Modifications

Supported Operating Systems

The operating systems supported by this release are listed in the Contents, above.

New in This Release

This is a hot fix for this product. This release contains no new features or functionality.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following correction and modification:


CPD Server no longer considers the dialing phase of a call successfully completed in the following scenario:

  1. The dialed call has been disconnected on the remote end, and pre-connection call-progress analysis (CPA) is completed with the cadence break call result.
  2. The cadence break CPA result is received by CPD Server before a GCEV_DISCONNECTED event is received from the Dialogic API.

Previously in this scenario, CPD Server considered such a call as successfully dialed. As a result, CPD Server bridged this unsuccessful call with an engaging call in ASM mode, or attempted to transfer it to a Voice Transfer Destination DN in transfer mode.

This correction applies to the following line types: sip-hmp, sip-hmp-asm, line-side-dm3, and isdn-dm3.

Corrections and Modifications

Supported Operating Systems

The operating systems supported by this release are listed in the Contents, above.

New in This Release

This is a hot fix for this product. This release contains no new features or functionality.

Corrections and Modifications

This release also includes the following correction and modification:


CPD Server now correctly uses the value from the continuous-no-signal option to determine the timeout for detecting the No Ringback call result while performing post-connection call-progress analysis (CPA). Previously, CPD Server set a much longer timeout without reference to the continuous-no-signal option. This correction is applicable to the following line types: isdn-dm3, sip-hmp, and sip-hmp-asm.

Release Number 8.0.001.02 [12/22/10] – Hot Fix

Supported Operating Systems
New in This Release
Corrections and Modifications

Supported Operating Systems

The operating systems supported by this release are listed in the Contents, above.

New in This Release

This is a hot fix for this product. This release contains no new features or functionality.

Corrections and Modifications

This release also includes the following correction and modification:


CPD Server now correctly supports Agent Assignment in Multiple Campaigns in engaging dialing modes for ISDN and ISDN-DM3 line types (that is when CPD Server option line-type is set to isdn or isdn-dm3 values). CPD Server now updates user data of the engaging call with the Campaign Group identifiers immediately after CPD Server receives the EventRouteRequest or EventQueued event on the Voice Transfer Destination DN.

Previously, CPD Server updated user data of the engaging call with the Campaign Group identifiers only after it received a CONNECT message from PSTN; that is, when the engaging call was already established on an agentís DN. As a result, Universal Routing Server did not receive Campaign Group identifiers for the engaging call and could not route the call in accordance with the Agent Assignment. (ER# 264720516)

Release Number 8.0.001.01 [06/18/10] – General

Supported Operating Systems
New in This Release
Corrections and Modifications

Supported Operating Systems

The operating systems supported by this release are listed in the Contents, above.

New in This Release

There are no restrictions for this release. This release contains no new features or functionality.

Corrections and Modifications

This release also includes the following corrections and modifications:


The CPD Server installation package now includes an updated CPD_SERVER_800.xml metadata file with correct parameters identified in the core section of the file. Previously, the file included incorrectly defined parameters in this section, which prevented the end user from deploying CPD Server using the new deployment functionality of Genesys Administrator. (ER# 242354651)


In the ASM mode, if the OCS asm_drop_announcement_data option is configured to play an announcement before a call is released, CPD Server now sends the Rsp_CallProgress message to Outbound Contact Server (OCS) before playing the announcement. This enables dialing optimization if the number of free channels is sufficient to dial the next outbound call(s).

Previously in this scenario, if CPD Server could not bridge the engaging and outbound calls, it sent the Rsp_CallProgress message to OCS after the announcement was played. For predictive algorithms, this delayed dialing for the length of the time it took to play the announcement, and especially impacted dialing when using the small group predictive algorithms.

Corrections and Modifications

At startup, CPD Server no longer displays misleading messages that identify a system error when there is none. (ER# 218039146)


CPD Server no longer takes HMP channels out of service if it receives certain 4xx or 6xx SIP messages. Previously, CPD Server might have taken them out of service upon receiving such SIP messages. (ER# 209201834)

Known Issues and Recommendations

This section provides the latest information on known issues and recommendations associated with this product.


Dialogic announced the End of Life and End of Support for the following Dialogic cards. Although CPD Server 8.0 supports them, Genesys cannot provide any technical support if it requires Dialogicís involvement.

For other Dialogic cards supported by CPD Server 8.0, see the Outbound Contact 8.0 Deployment Guide.


For some SIP endpoints, when an agent places a call on hold a second time, Music-on-hold (MOH) might not work due to improper Session Description Protocol (SDP) from SIP Server 7.6. In order to use MOH with SIP Server 7.6 for all call processing port DNs in the iptB<n> subfolders under HMP configuration folder (as specified in CPD Server's location option), do the following:

Note: This requires that you use HMP SU 195 or higher.

(ER# 185277611)

Found In: 7.6.101.03 Fixed In: 

In ASM (Active Switching Matrix) modes, CPD Server may send a message that the channel is released before it is actually released. This happens in the following situation:

  1. One of the bridged calls is released.
  2. CPD Server sends a notification to OCS immediately that both channels were released. However, the real channel release for the other call happens only after the channel disconnection procedure is completed by the Dialogic board.
  3. OCS sends a request to CPD Server to make a new call before the Dialogic board has completed the channel disconnection procedure.
  4. CPD Server may not be able to make the call due to a lack of available channels.

(ER# 122338771)

Found In: 7.6.100.02 Fixed In: 

CPD Server Proxy improperly handles ports, returning No Ports Available messages when some are available. (ER# 165547292)

Found In: 7.5.000.21 Fixed In: 

The SIP REFER method is not supported. (ER# 132746363)

Found In: 7.5.000.20 Fixed In: 

The CPD Server Wizard always specifies the iptB parameter as 0, even if a number other than 0 is specified in the Wizard. (ER# 120709158)

Found In: 7.5.000.20 Fixed In: 

The CPD Server Wizard DN Range properties window does not allow you to specify a Digital Resource DN. As a result, the DNs are numbered starting at 1. (ER# 120709165)

Found In: 7.5.000.20 Fixed In: 

When the backup CPD Proxy becomes primary, all subsequent calls have a call_result of No Ports Available. (ER# 5369951)

Found In: 7.1.000.04 Fixed In: 

When using the Wizard to install CPD Server, the License section is not included on the Options tab of the CPD Server application in Configuration Manager. (ER# 94932)

Found In: 7.0.100.07 Fixed In:
