ISDN calling out issue on cisco router

Hi Experts,
 

The issue i have here is our cisco router (2821) can only utilise 3 out of the 6 lines we have with Telstra (Telecom provider). We have 3 x ISDN 2s and should be getting 6 in/out lines concurrently however it seems like everytime we got 3 people on the line the phones reach a max and will not call out.

Can anyone give me a series of testing commands and what i should look out for?

I've tried sh isdn status and all looks good. Also it should as all the 3 interfaces lights up but they are only using one of the 2 lines available.

I found the solution. Just and to shutdown the interface that is not in use and all the voice ports would start to work correctly.

do you have all six of the ISDN lines in a routing group? are you using the routing group with a round-robin assignment?  which version of Cisco telephony are you using?

it seems like you are not activating the second B-channel of each line - hence 3.

in this case then, the easiest thing would be to recall what was changed when it stopped working.  can you post your CME config - everything just before all the dn and line-dn settings....

I realise also it is only using the 1st channel on all 3 slots. I believe there should be 2 channels :1 and :2 right? Why is this happening?
