I am using Unity 8.0.2.  I have several mailboxes that have the standard greeting disabled. I would like to enable them but they are greyed out and i don't have any options. I am the CM administrator so its not a permissions issue since i have all permissions.  Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

Are you the Unity admin? CM and Unity admins can be different.

That link did not help me. There was no alternate greeting checked. The only greeting checked is the error greeting and its also greyed out.

Standard
Plays at all times unless overridden by another greeting. You cannot disable the standard greeting.

There's a known bug in version 4 where you have to run DBWalker for it to set itself back up properly...but that's 4 versions back and on a Windows platform.

Is it possible that the greeting is actually enabled but just showing disabled?

The recording for the Standard greeting is the one that plays but its still showing disabled. The only one checked is error and it has not greeting recorded.

Looks like a bug just like in version 4.

You may want to call up Cisco TAC on this. It should not be disabled, per their doc, this is not a setting that can be changed.

Are you running it on a Windows machine? Try running DBWalker if you are, maybe that'll resolve it.

So i downloaded DBWalker but i have no idea how to even start it. Does it integrate itself in unity or is it a separate program on my pc that i have to open and configure. Is there a path in unity to get to it? Thanks for you help.
