Persistent "off-hook" icons when using passive users = false setting in Sametime Unified Telephony

The IBM Sametime Unified Telephony PresenceAdapter application performs a passive log-in for all telephony users in order to publish user telephony status in a Sametime community.

If passive log-ins are disabled, you may see a user's telephony status as left "off hook" when the user logged out of Sametime Unified Telephony while on a call.


This has been identified as a product defect under APAR LO68913


Sametime Unified Telephony 8.5 and higher

Resolving the problem

There is no resolution for off-hook icons if you set the passive logins to "false". You would have to leave that feature enabled in order to get the correct phone status. Please open the /enterprise/ibm/ file on your Telephony Application Server and make sure you have passive.users.supported set to "true."
