TASKE Support Knowledge Base


If there are discrepancies between the devices in your phone system and the resources listed in the TASKE Administrator, some Reports and Visualizer queries will appear to be inaccurate. The TASKE Device Check Wizard analyzes the contents of the TASKE database and historical data file to find device discrepancies and potential programming errors for you. The devices listed in the Avaya TSAPI Service Security Database (SDB) should match the resources listed in TASKE Administrator in order to correctly collect call statistics for the listed devices.

Using the TASKE Device Check Wizard

The TASKE Device Check Wizard is located in the TASKE installation folder and can be launched by double clicking on ttdevchk.exe.

Select a TASKE PBX file (DFyymmdd.pbx) as well as your TASKE Database file (toolbox.cde) by clicking on the appropriate Browse buttons.

The TASKE Device Check Wizard will begin to compare devices listed in the database file and PBX file once you click on the Next button.

When finished, the window will display Analysis completed and provide a summary of potential problems that require attention.

Understanding the Analysis results

After analyzing the Database and PBX file the TASKE Device Check Wizard may provide a list of programming errors that may need to be corrected.
