Problem Troubleshooting steps
Sites lacking phone redundancy

A site requires at least two Edges to establish phone redundancy.

  • If you do not have a second Edge in service, follow the Setup Instructions for your Edge model to put that Edge online.
Sites with unused trunks

The trunk is assigned to a site but not assigned to an Edge interface. See Configure a network interface for Edge. If a trunk is disabled on purpose, consider removing the trunk from the site. 

Sites with disabled routes Put the outbound route in service with the Outbound Route State selector If a route is disabled on purpose, consider deleting the route.
Edges are online, but out-of-service Put the Edge in service. If you need to return an Edge, contact Genesys Cloud Customer Care.
Edges are offline, but in-service
  • Ensure that the Edge has connectivity from the Edge WAN port to the Internet and AWS.
  • Restart the Edge.
Edges are offline, and out-of-service

    Edges are not finished provisioning Locate your Edge model and follow the Setup Instructions.
    Edges with unused trunks
    • The trunk is assigned to an Edge, but the trunk is not assigned to an outbound route in the site. See Create an outbound route.
      Note: If a trunk is set up for inbound calls only, it does not need an outbound route assignment. You can ignore this item in that case.
