3rd Party BIB Recording – On-Net Calls not Recorded

Hello Everyone,

I encountered an issue where CUCM 9.2.1 integrated with the 3rd Party BIB Recording System, where some on-net calls can’t be recorded in the same site. I got the solution to fixed the issue.

    • Change “SPAN to PC” to “Enabled”;
