Station Present Test (also called Ringing Application Test) (#48)

This test applies momentary ringing voltage to the terminal equipment and monitors resulting current flow to determine whether terminal equipment is connected to the port. This test may cause some terminal equipment to ring briefly during daily maintenance. If this ringing disturbs the customer or the terminal equipment, you can disable it via the Tests field on the change station extension form. However, on some software releases, Tests #6, 7, and 35 also are disabled.

Error Code
Test Result
Description/Recommendation

ABORT
Necessary system resources could not be allocated to run this test.
Retry the command at 1-minute intervals no more than 5 times.
If the test continues to abort, escalate the problem.
1000
ABORT
System resources are unavailable. The port may be busy with a valid call. This result is also reported for the system's Music-On-Hold port when it is off-hook, which it usually is.
Enter display port GGGVSpp to determine the station's extension.
Enter status station extension to determine the service state of the port.
If the port is in use, wait until the port is idle. Retry the command at 1-minute intervals no more than 5 times.
If the test continues to abort, escalate the problem.
1004
ABORT
A valid call seized the port during the test and aborted the test.
Use the display port GGGVSpp command to determine the station extension.
Use the status station extension command to determine the service state of the port.
If the port is in use, wait until the port is idle before testing. Retry the command at 1-minute intervals no more than 5 times.
If the test continues to abort, escalate the problem.
1005
ABORT
This test was aborted due to a configuration problem. The test is not applicable for this type of analog port. This error can be ignored.
1008
ABORT
A ringing circuit could not be allocated. Retry the command at 1-minute intervals no more than 5 times.
Check for Error Type 257 in the hardware error log. Resolve, if present.
1018
ABORT
Administration has disabled the test. The default for the Test? field on the station form is y. Determine why this field has been set to n on this station (this may be due to the ringing application Test 48, which can be disturbing to customer or terminal equipment).
To enable the test for a particular station being tested, enter change station extension.
Change the Test? field on the station form to y.
2000
ABORT
Response to the test request was not received within the allowable time period.
2100
ABORT
System resources required to run this test are not available.
Retry the command at 1-minute intervals no more than 5 times.
If the test continues to abort, escalate the problem.

FAIL
The terminal equipment is not connected to the Media Module. Some terminal equipment, such as modems, may fail even when connected properly.
Remotely test the terminal equipment.
If the test fails again, resolve any RING-GEN errors in the error log, if present.
Check all of the wiring between the station equipment and the switch. Then, run the test again.
Some terminal equipment might fail even when it is connected properly. If this is the case, disable the test using the change station extension command (enter n into the Test field). Note that this action also disables Test #35 on this port.
If the test still fails, the terminal equipment may be defective. Check and replace it, if necessary.

PASS
The station is connected properly to the switch. Investigate user-reported troubles on this port by running other port tests, by examining station wiring, or by inspecting the station.
This test may also pass if no terminal equipment is connected and the terminal is located very far from the switch.
Any
NO BOARD
The test could not relate the internal ID to the port (no board). This result could be due to incorrect translations, no board is inserted, an incorrect board is inserted, or an insane board is inserted.
Check to make sure that the board translations are correct. Use the list configuration command, and resolve any problems.
If the board is correctly inserted, issue the busy board GGGVS command.
Issue the reset board GGGVS command.
Issue the release board GGGVS command.
Issue the test board GGGVS long command. This re-establishes the link between the internal ID and the port.
If this is not the case, check to make sure that a valid board is inserted.
