Introduction
Cisco CallManager serves as the software-based call-processing component of
the Cisco IP Telephony Solutions for the Enterprise, part of Cisco AVVID
(Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data). The Cisco IP Telephony
Applications Server provides a high-availability server platform for
Cisco CallManager call processing, services, and applications.
The Cisco CallManager system extends enterprise telephony features and
functions to packet telephony network devices such as IP phones, media
processing devices, voice-over-IP (VoIP) gateways, and multimedia applications.
Additional data, voice, and video services such as unified messaging, multimedia
conferencing, collaborative contact centers, and interactive multimedia response
systems interact through Cisco CallManager open telephony application
programming interface (API).
Cisco CallManager provides signaling and call control services to Cisco
integrated telephony applications as well as third-party applications. It performs
the following primary functions:
•
Call processing
•
Signaling and device control
•
Dial plan administration
•
Phone feature administration
•
Directory services

Introduction
Key Features and Benefits
•
Operations, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P)
•
Programming interface to external voice-processing applications such as
Cisco SoftPhone, Cisco IP Interactive Voice Response (IP IVR), Cisco
Personal Assistant, and Cisco CallManager Attendant Console
Key Features and Benefits
The Cisco CallManager system includes a suite of integrated voice applications
that perform voice conferencing and manual attendant console functions. This
suite of voice applications means that no need exists for special-purpose
voice-processing hardware. Supplementary and enhanced services such as hold,
transfer, forward, conference, multiple line appearances, automatic route
selection, speed dial, last-number redial, and other features extend to IP phones
and gateways. Because Cisco CallManager is a software application, enhancing
its capabilities in production environments only requires upgrading software on
the server platform, thereby avoiding expensive hardware upgrade costs.
Distribution of Cisco CallManager and all Cisco IP Phones, gateways, and
applications across an IP network provides a distributed, virtual telephony
network. This architecture improves system availability and scalability. Call
admission control ensures that voice quality of service (QoS) is maintained across
constricted WAN link and automatically diverts calls to alternate public switched
telephone network (PSTN) routes when WAN bandwidth is not available.
A web-browsable interface to the configuration database provides the capability
for remote device and system configuration. This interface also provides access to
HTML-based online help for users and administrators.
Browsing to Cisco CallManager Administration
Cisco recommends that you access the Cisco CallManager Administration
program from a PC that is not on the same machine as the Web Server or
Cisco CallManager program.

Introduction
Browsing to Cisco CallManager Administration
Caution
A web browser as a resource-intensive application may consume large amounts of
system memory and CPU cycles. When the web browser takes resources away
from Cisco CallManager, it adversely affects call processing. Possible
consequences of using the browser on the same machine as the Web Server and
Cisco CallManager include delayed dial tone and dropped calls.
The Cisco CallManager Administration program supports the following
Microsoft Windows operating system browsers:
•
Netscape Communicator 4.X
•
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or 6
From any user PC in your network, browse into a server that is running
Cisco CallManager Administration and log in with administrative privileges.
Note
Simultaneous logon to Cisco CallManager Administration by a large number of
users can cause web page performance to suffer. Try to limit the number of users
and administrators that are logged on simultaneously.
Procedure
Use the following procedure to browse into the server.
Step 1
Start your preferred Microsoft Windows operating system browser.
Step 2
In the address bar of the web browser, enter the following URL:
http://<CCM-server-name>/CCMAdmin/main.asp
where: <CCM-server-name> equals the name or IP address of the server
Step 3
Log in with your assigned administrative privileges.

Cisco CallManager Group
Configuration
A Cisco CallManager group specifies a prioritized list of up to three
Cisco CallManagers. The first Cisco CallManager in the list serves as the primary
Cisco CallManager for that group, and the other members of the group serve as
secondary and tertiary (backup) Cisco CallManagers.
Each device pool has one Cisco CallManager group assigned to it. When a device
registers, it attempts to connect to the primary (first) Cisco CallManager in the
group that is assigned to its device pool. If the primary Cisco CallManager is not
available, the device tries to connect to the next Cisco CallManager that is listed
in the group, and so on.
Cisco CallManager groups provide important features for your system:
•
Redundancy—This feature enables you to designate a primary and backup
Cisco CallManagers for each group.
•
Call processing load balancing—This feature enables you to distribute the
control of devices across multiple Cisco CallManagers.
For most systems, you need to have multiple groups, and you need to assign a
single Cisco CallManager to multiple groups to achieve better load distribution
and redundancy.
Use the following topics to add, update, or delete a Cisco CallManager group:

Date/Time Group Configuration
Use Date/Time Groups to define time zones for the various devices that are
connected to Cisco CallManager. Each device exists as a member of only one
device pool, and each device pool has only one assigned Date/Time Group.
Installing Cisco CallManager automatically configures a default Date/Time
Group that is called CMLocal. CMLocal synchronizes to the active date and time
of the operating system on the server where Cisco CallManager is installed. After
installing Cisco CallManager, you can change the settings for CMLocal as
desired. Normally, adjust server date/time to the local time zone date and time.
Note
CMLocal resets to the operating system date and time whenever you restart
Cisco CallManager or upgrade the Cisco CallManager software to a new release.
Do not change the name of CMLocal.
Tip
For a worldwide distribution of Cisco IP Phones, create one named Date/Time
Group for each of the 24 time zones.

Device Defaults Configuration
Use device defaults to set the default characteristics of each type of device that
registers with a Cisco CallManager. The device defaults for a device type apply to
all auto-registered devices of that type within a Cisco CallManager cluster. You
can set the following device defaults for each device type to which they apply:
•
Device load
•
Device pool
•
Phone button template
When a device auto-registers with a Cisco CallManager, it acquires the device
default settings for its device type. After a device registers, you can update its
configuration individually to change the device settings.
Installing Cisco CallManager automatically sets device defaults. You cannot
create new device defaults or delete existing ones, but you can change the default
settings by using the following topics:

Updating Device Defaults
Before You Begin
Before updating the device defaults, perform any of the following tasks that apply
to your system:
•
Add new firmware files for the devices to the TFTP server. For each available
firmware load, a .bin file exists in the Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath folder
on the Cisco CallManager server or in another configurable location.
For example, for the firmware load P002A0305556, a file named
P002A0305556.bin exists in the Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath folder.
•
If you use device defaults to assign a firmware load that does not exist in the
directory, those devices will fail to load the assigned firmware.
•
Configure new device pools. See the “Adding a Device Pool” section on
page 8-4.
•
If the device is a phone, configure new phone templates. See the “Adding
Phone Button Templates” section on page 51-4.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose System > Device Defaults.
Step 2
Update the appropriate settings for the device that you want to change as
described in Table 6-1.
Step 3
Click Update to save the changes in the Cisco CallManager configuration
database.
Step 4
Click the Reset icon to the left of the device name to reset all the devices of that
type and load the new defaults on all Cisco CallManagers in the cluster.
If you choose not to reset all devices of that type, only new devices that are added
after you change the device defaults receive the latest defaults.

Region Configuration
Use regions to specify the bandwidth that is used for audio and video calls within
a region and between existing regions. The audio codec determines the type of
compression and the maximum amount of bandwidth that is used per audio call.
The video call bandwidth comprises the sum of the audio bandwidth and video
bandwidth but does not include overhead.
Note
The default audio codec for all calls through Cisco CallManager is G.711. If you
do not plan to use any other audio codec, you do not need to use regions.

Enterprise Parameters Configuration
Enterprise parameters provide default settings that apply to all devices and
services in the same cluster. (A cluster comprises a set of Cisco CallManagers that
share the same database.) When you install a new Cisco CallManager, it uses the
enterprise parameters to set the initial values of its device defaults. For more
information on device defaults, see the “Device Defaults Configuration” section
on page 6-1 and refer to the “System-Level Configuration Settings” section of the
Cisco CallManager System Guide.
You cannot add or delete enterprise parameters, but you can use the following
procedure to update existing enterprise parameters.
Note
Many of the enterprise parameters rarely require change. Do not change an
enterprise parameter unless you fully understand the feature that you are changing
or unless the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) specifies the change.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose System > Enterprise Parameters.
Step 2
Update the appropriate parameter settings.
To view the description of a particular enterprise parameter, click the parameter
name. To view the descriptions of all the enterprise parameters, click the i button.

Location Configuration
Use locations to implement call admission control in a centralized call-processing
system. Call admission control enables you to regulate audio quality and video
availability by limiting the amount of bandwidth that is available for audio and
video calls over links between the locations. For more information, refer to the
“Call Admission Control” section in the Cisco CallManager System Guide.
Note
If you do not use call admission control to limit the audio and video bandwidth on
an IP WAN link, an unlimited number of calls can be active on that link at the
same time. This situation can cause the audio quality of each audio call and the
video quality of each video call to degrade as the link becomes oversubscribed.
In a centralized call-processing system, a single Cisco CallManager cluster
provides call processing for all locations on the IP telephony network. The
Cisco CallManager cluster usually resides at the main (or central) location, along
with other devices such as phones and gateways. The remote locations contain
additional devices, but no Cisco CallManager. IP WAN links connect the remote
locations to the main location.

Resynchronizing a Location Bandwidth
This section describes how to resynchronize the bandwidth for a location. When
calls are blocked from using the link for a location, bandwidth leakage may have
occurred that may reduce the allotted bandwidth for the location. You can
resynchronize the location bandwidth to the maximum amount that is assigned to
this location without resetting the Cisco CallManager server. For more
information, refer to the “Bandwidth Calculations” section in the Call Admission
Control chapter of the Cisco CallManager System Guide.

Auto-Registration Configuration
Use auto-registration if you want Cisco CallManager to assign directory numbers
automatically to new phones as they connect to the IP telephony network.
Note
Cisco recommends you use auto-registration to add less than 100 phones to your
network. To add more than 100 phones to your network, use the Bulk
Administration Tool (BAT).
After a phone has auto-registered, you can move it to a new location and assign it
to a different device pool without affecting its directory number.

Step 5
Repeat Step 2 through Step 4 for each Cisco CallManager that you want to enable
for auto-registration. You can designate only one primary Cisco CallManager for
auto-registration, but you can designate other Cisco Call Managers as backups for
purposes of auto-registration. See the “Redundancy” section in the
Cisco CallManager System Guide.
Step 6
Choose System > Cisco CallManager Group.
Step 7
From the list of Cisco CallManager groups, choose the group that is enabled for
auto-registration. (In most systems, the name of this group is Default.) This group

Reusing Auto-Registration Numbers
When you connect a new device to the network, Cisco CallManager assigns the
next available (unused) auto-registration directory number to that device. If you
manually change the directory number of an auto-registered device, or if you
delete that device from the database, Cisco CallManager can reuse the
auto-registration directory number of that device.
When a device attempts to auto-register, Cisco CallManager searches the range of
auto-registration numbers that you specified and tries to find the next available
directory number to assign to the device. It begins the search with the next
directory number in sequence after the last one that was assigned. If it reaches the
ending directory number in the range, Cisco CallManager continues to search
from the starting directory number in the range.
You can use the following procedure to reset the range of auto-registration
directory numbers and force Cisco CallManager to search from the starting
number in the range.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose System > Cisco CallManager.
Step 2
Choose the Cisco CallManager where you want to reset auto-registration.
Step 3
Write down the current settings for Starting Directory Number and Ending
Directory Number.
Step 4
Click Auto-registration Disabled on this Cisco CallManager.
Caution
Step 5
New phones cannot auto-register while auto-registration is disabled.

Survivable Remote Site Telephony
Configuration
A survivable remote site telephony (SRST) reference comprises the gateway that
can provide limited Cisco CallManager functionality when all other
Cisco CallManager servers for a device are unreachable. Typically assigned to
device pools, SRST references determine the gateways where calling devices
search when they attempt to complete a call if Cisco CallManager is unavailable.
For more detailed information on SRST references, refer to the “Survivable
Remote Site Telephony References” section in the Cisco CallManager System
Guide.

Automated Alternate Routing Group
Configuration
Automated alternate routing (AAR) provides a mechanism to reroute calls
through the PSTN or other network by using an alternate number when
Cisco CallManager blocks a call due to insufficient location bandwidth. With
automated alternate routing, the caller does not need to hang up and redial the
called party. The AAR group represents the dialing area where the line/directory
number (DN), the Cisco voice mail port, and the gateway are located.
For each AAR group, you enter the prefix digits that are used for automated
alternate routing within the AAR group, as well as the prefix digits used for
automated alternate routing between a given AAR group and other AAR groups.
Devices, such as gateways, phones (by means of directory numbers), and trunks,
associate with AAR groups. If automated alternate routing of calls takes place,
you may also associate devices with an AAR calling search space.
Use the following topics to find, add, update, or delete AAR groups:

Application Dial Rules Configuration
The administrator uses dial rules configuration to add and sort the priority of
dialing rules. Dial rules for applications such as Cisco IPMA automatically strip
numbers from or add numbers to telephone numbers that a user dials. For
example, the dial rules automatically add the digit 9 in front of a 7-digit telephone
number to provide access to an outside line.
For example, in Cisco IPMA, the assistant can perform a directory search from
the assistant console. The assistant can drag and drop the directory entry to the
My Calls panel on the assistant console, which invokes a call to the number that
is listed in the entry. The dial rules apply to the number that is listed in the entry
before the call gets made.

Deleting a Partition
The following procedure describes how to delete a partition.
Before You Begin
You cannot delete a partition if it is assigned to an item such as calling search
space or to a route pattern. To find out which calling search spaces or other items
are using the partition, click the Dependency Records link from the Partition
Configuration window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system,
the dependency records summary window displays a message. For more
information about dependency records, see the “Accessing Dependency Records”
section on page A-3. If you try to delete a partition that is in use,
Cisco CallManager displays an error message. Before deleting a partition that is
currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:
•
Assign a different partition to any calling search spaces, devices, or other
items that are using the partition that you want to delete.
•
Delete the calling search spaces, devices, or other items that are using the
partition that you want to delete.
Procedure
Step 1
In the menu bar, choose Route Plan > Partition.
Step 2
Locate the partition that you want to delete. See the “Finding a Partition” section
on page 15-1.
Step 3
Check the check box of the partition that you want to delete and click Delete
Selected.
Tip
You can delete all the partitions in the list by checking the check box in
the Matching Record(s) title bar and clicking Delete Selected.
A message displays that states that you cannot undo this action.
Step 4
To delete the partition, click OK or to cancel the deletion, click Cancel.

Field
Description
(Partition Name,
Description)
Enter a name in the partition name and description box.
Ensure each partition name is unique to the route plan.
Partition names can contain alphanumeric characters, as
well as spaces, hyphens (-), and underscore characters
(_).
Note
The length of the partition names limits the
maximum number of partitions that can be added
to a calling search space. Table 15-2 provides
examples of the maximum number of partitions
that can be added to a calling search space if
partition names are of fixed length.
Follow the partition name by a comma (,); then, enter a
description on the same line as the Partition Name. If you
do not enter a description, Cisco CallManager
automatically enters the partition name in this field.
Use a new line for each partition and description.
Timesaver
Use concise and descriptive names for your partitions. The
CompanynameLocationCalltype format usually provides a sufficient level of
detail and is short enough to enable you to quickly and easily identify a partition.
For example, CiscoDallasMetroPT identifies a partition for toll-free, inter-local
access and transport area (LATA) calls from the Cisco office in Dallas.

Route Filter Configuration
Route filters, along with route patterns/hunt pilots, use dialed-digit strings to
determine how a call is handled. Route filters only apply when you configure a
pattern that contains the at (@) wildcard. When the route pattern/hunt pilot
contains the @ wildcard, Cisco CallManager routes calls according to the
numbering plan that is specified in the Numbering Plan drop-down list box. The
route filter window that Cisco CallManager displays varies according to the
numbering plan that you select.
Route filters allow you to determine which route patterns/hunt pilots your users
can dial; for example, whether your users can manually choose a long-distance
carrier (by dialing 101 plus a carrier access code).
Refer to “Understanding Route Plans” in the Cisco CallManager System Guide
for more information.
Tip
Always add and define the route filter first and then add the route filter to the route
pattern/hunt pilot.

when updating an existing route filter. This procedure describes removing a route
filter clause from an existing route filter.
Procedure
Step 1
From Cisco CallManager Administration, choose Route Plan > Route Filter.
Step 2
Locate the route filter from which you want to remove route filter clauses.
Step 3
Scroll down to the top of the clause that you want to remove and click
Remove Clause.
A dialog box appears that warns you that you cannot undo the removal of this
route filter clause.
Caution
Each Remove Clause button applies to the clause immediately below the button.
Check carefully to ensure that you are removing the correct clause before
initiating this action. If you accidentally remove a clause, you cannot retrieve it,
and you must rebuild it.
Step 4
To remove the clause, click OK or to cancel the action, click Cancel. If you click
OK, Cisco CallManager removes the clause from the route filter.

Deleting a Route Filter
The following procedure describes how to delete a route filter.
Before You Begin
You cannot delete a route filter that route patterns/hunt pilots, translation patterns,
or other items use. To find out which route patterns/hunt pilots, translation
patterns, or other items are using the route filter, click the Dependency Records
link from the Route Filter Configuration window. If the dependency records are
not enabled for the system, the dependency records summary window displays a
message. For more information about dependency records, see the “Accessing
Dependency Records” section on page A-3. If you try to delete a route filter that
is in use, Cisco CallManager displays an error message. Before deleting a route
filter that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following
tasks:
•
Assign a different route filter to any route patterns/hunt pilots, translation
patterns, or other items that are using the route filter that you want to delete.
See the “Updating a Route Pattern/Hunt Pilot” section on page 21-6 and the
“Updating a Translation Pattern” section on page 22-5.
•
Delete the route patterns/hunt pilots, translation patterns, or other items that
are using the route filter that you want to delete. See the “Deleting a Route
Pattern/Hunt Pilot” section on page 21-8 and the “Deleting a Translation
Pattern” section on page 22-7.

Route Filter Tag Descriptions
The tag serves as the core component of a route filter. A tag applies a name to a
subset of the dialed-digit string. For example, the NANP number 972-555-1234
comprises LOCAL-AREA-CODE (972), OFFICE-CODE (555), and
SUBSCRIBER (1234) route filter tags.
Route filter tags require operators and can require additional values to decide
which calls are filtered.
The values for route filter tag fields can contain the wildcard characters X, *, #, [,
], -, ^, and the numbers 0 through 9. (See Table 14-3 in the “Special Characters
and Settings” section of the Cisco CallManager System Guide for definitions of
wildcard characters.) The descriptions in Table 17-2 use the notations [2-9] and
XXXX to represent actual digits. In this notation, [2-9] represents any single digit
in the range 2 through 9, and X represents any single digit in the range 0 through
Cisco CallManager Administration Guide
OL-4659-01

9. Therefore, the description “The three-digit area code in the form [2-9]XX”
means that you can enter the actual digits 200 through 999, or all wildcards, or
any mixture of actual digits and wildcards that results in a pattern with that range.
Route filter tags vary depending on the numbering plan that you choose from the
Numbering Plan drop-down list box on the Route Filter Configuration window.
Table 17-2 describes the route filter tags for the North American Numbering Plan.
Table 17-2 Route Filter Tags
Tag
Description
AREA-CODE
This three-digit area code in the form
[2-9]XX identifies the area code for
long-distance calls.
COUNTRY CODE
These one-, two-, or three-digit codes
specify the destination country for
international calls.
END-OF-DIALING
This single character identifies the end
of the dialed-digit string. The # character
serves as the end-of-dialing signal for
international numbers that are dialed
within the NANP.
INTERNATIONAL-ACCESS
This two-digit access code specifies
international dialing. Calls that originate
in the U.S. use 01 for this code.
INTERNATIONAL-DIRECT-DIAL
This one-digit code identifies a
direct-dialed international call. Calls
that originate in the U.S. use 1 for this
code.
INTERNATIONAL-OPERATOR
This one-digit code identifies an
operator-assisted international call. This
code specifies 0 for calls that originate in
the U.S.

Route filter tag operators determine whether a call is filtered based on the
existence, and sometimes the contents, of the dialed-digit string that is associated
with that tag. The operators EXISTS and DOES-NOT-EXIST simply check for the
existence of that part of the dialed-digit string. The operator == matches the actual
dialed digits with the specified value or pattern. Table 17-3 describes the
operators that can be used with route filter tags.

Route Group Configuration
A route group allows you to designate the order in which gateways are selected.
It allows you to prioritize a list of gateways and ports for outgoing trunk selection.
For example, if you use two long-distance carriers, you could add a route group,
so long-distance calls to the less expensive carrier are given priority. Calls only
route to the more expensive carrier if the first trunk is unavailable.

Finding a Route Group
Because you might have several route groups in your network, Cisco CallManager
lets you locate specific route groups based on specific criteria. Use the following
procedure to locate route groups.
Note
During your work in a browser session, Cisco CallManager Administration
retains your route group search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items
and return to this menu item, Cisco CallManager Administration retains your
route group search preferences until you modify your search or close the browser.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose Route Plan > Route/Hunt > Route Group.
The Find and List Route Groups window displays.
Step 2
Step 3
From the drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:
•
begins with
•
contains
•
ends with
•
is exactly
Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable, and click Find. You can also
specify how many items per page to display.
Note
To find all route groups registered in the database, click Find without
entering any search text.
A list of discovered route groups displays by route group name.
Note
You can delete multiple route groups from the Find and List Route Groups
window by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate route groups
and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all of the route groups in the
window by checking the check box in the matching records title bar and

Route/Hunt List Configuration
A route/hunt list associates a set of route groups and line groups in a specified
priority order. A route/hunt list then associates with one or more route patterns
and determines the order in which those route groups and line groups are
accessed. The order controls the progress of the search for available devices for
outgoing calls.
A route/hunt list comprises a collection of resources (gateway ports, gateways,
Cisco IP Phones, and POTS phones) that route calls that match a defined route
pattern. After Cisco CallManager determines a call that is to be routed through a
defined route/hunt list, Cisco CallManager finds the first available device on the
basis of the order of the line group(s) and route group(s) that a route/hunt list
defines.
A route/hunt list can contain only line groups, only route groups, or both route
groups and line groups. If a route/hunt list contains both line groups and route
groups, the line groups must precede the route groups. Each route/hunt list should
have at least one route group or one line group. Each line group includes at least
one directory number that is available. Each route group includes at least one
device, such as a gateway, that is available. Based on device type,
Cisco CallManager can choose some, or all, ports as resources in each route
group. Some devices, such as digital access, only allow you to choose all ports.
Each route/hunt list can contain the same route groups and line groups that other
route/hunt lists have already chosen.

lists. The following procedure describes adding a route group or line group to an
existing route/hunt list.
Note
You cannot add route groups that contain MGCP gateways that use the QSIG
protocol (a QSIG route group) and route groups that contain gateways that use the
H.323 protocol (H.323 route group) to the same route/hunt list. For more
information, refer to the “Route Groups and Route/Hunt Lists” section in the
Cisco CallManager System Guide.
Before You Begin
You must build one or more line groups and route groups and add a route/hunt list
before performing this procedure.
Note
When adding line groups and route groups to a route/hunt list, add the line groups
first and then add route groups. When complete, the route/hunt list must be
ordered, so all line groups precede all route groups. Refer to the “Changing the
Order of Route Groups and Line Groups in a Route/Hunt List” section on
page 20-10 for details of ordering line groups and route groups in a route/hunt list.

Route Pattern/Hunt Pilot Configuration
A route pattern/hunt pilot comprises a string of digits (an address) and a set of
associated digit manipulations that can be assigned to a route list or a gateway.
Route patterns and hunt pilots provide flexibility in network design. They work in
conjunction with route filters and route lists to direct calls to specific devices and
to include, exclude, or modify specific digit patterns.
Refer to “Understanding Route Plans” in Cisco CallManager System Guide for
more detailed route pattern/hunt pilot information.

Translation Pattern Configuration
The Cisco CallManager uses translation patterns to manipulate dialed digits
before it routes a call. In some cases, the system does not use the dialed number.
In other cases, the public switched telephone network (PSTN) does not recognize
the dialed number.

External Route Plan Wizard
Setting the Routing Options
Procedure
Step 1
Check the check boxes for local call fallback, toll bypass call fallback,
long-distance call fallback, international call fallback, and equal access
suppression as appropriate.
Note
Step 2
If you choose local call fallback, toll bypass call fallback, long-distance
call fallback, or international call fallback, the external route plan wizard
includes route groups with remote gateways in the associated route/hunt
lists.
In the Access code for toll bypass and fallback calls field, enter the access code
for calls that are routed to remote or local gateways. Use only numeric values.
(Many systems use 9 for external calls.)
If the access code is entered for toll bypass and fallback calls, Cisco CallManager
uses that access code in the prefix digits entry for route groups that are associated
with those call types.
Note
Step 3
The access code entered in this field applies to the entire dial plan.
Cisco CallManager allows only one access code per dial plan.
In the Access code for extensions that are served by a connected PBX field, enter
the access code for calls between Cisco CallManager and the adjacent PBX.
(Many systems use 8 for calls to adjacent PBX systems.)
If the access code that is entered for the extensions is served by a connected PBX,
that access code, followed by a dot (.), gets appended to the route patterns that are
associated with these extensions.
Step 4
Click Next.

Procedure
Step 1
In the Tenant Name field, enter the tenant name. (Generally, use the name of the
organization for which the route plan is being built.)
Note
Cisco recommends that you use a short tenant name because the calling
search space and partition names incorporate it.
Step 2
In the Number of physical locations in the entire system field, enter the number
of geographical locations that are associated with the organization. This field
should reflect all Cisco CallManagers in the system that use unique area codes.
The default number specifies two locations.
Step 3
Click Next.

Entering Location Information
The Location Entry window provides information for the number of locations that
are specified in the Tenant Information window. The following procedure
describes how to add location information for the external route plan.
Procedure
Step 1
In the Location Name field, enter the name of the location if it differs from the
one shown. Ensure each location name is unique for the tenant to which it applies.
Use only alphanumeric characters for the location name.
Step 2
In the Local Area Code(s) field, enter the local area codes that are available at this
location. (Local area codes comprise all area codes in the calling area.
Cisco CallManager does not consider calls within the calling area to be
long-distance calls.)
If your area includes more than one local (toll-free) area code, use commas to
separate the area codes in the list. Place the primary local area code first, followed
by the secondary and tertiary local area codes.
Note
Step 3
The primary local area code sets prefix digits on local route patterns. Not
listing the primary area code in the correct order adversely affects route
filter generation.
Enter the 7- or 10-digit number that is the main number for the organization at this
location.
Cisco CallManager Administration Guide

Step 4
Specify the number of digits that are required for local calls at this location.
The route plan wizard uses this information to determine how many route lists to
create for this location. If you choose 10-digit or 7-digit dialing, the wizard
creates one route list for this location. If you choose metro dialing, the wizard
creates two route lists for the location.
Step 5
Repeat Step 1 through Step 4 to add location information for other locations.

External Route Plan Wizard
Providing Gateway Information
Step 3
Specify the calling number that will be sent to the adjacent switch when a call is
routed through this gateway.
Step 4
Check the Discard dialed access code check box if this gateway connects to a PBX
that does not require the Cisco CallManager access code.
Step 5
Enter the range of directory numbers or extension numbers that are associated
with the adjacent PBX. Use commas to separate multiple entries. Use X wildcard
characters to specify ranges of digits. For example, if the PBX serves extensions
numbered 8000 through 8999 and 9000 through 9999, enter 8XXX, 9XXX to
create route patterns for the identified directory number ranges.
Note
If you provide directory number ranges, the wizard generates one route
list for each unique range (route pattern) that you enter. If you provide an
access code for the directory number ranges and do not check the Discard
dialed access code check box, the wizard generates one route list for each
unique range (route pattern) that you enter and precedes each route list
with the access code and a dot (.).
Step 6
Click Next.
Step 7
To add gateway information for the additional gateways, repeat Step 1 through
Step 6.

Route Plan Report
The route plan report lists all assigned and unassigned directory numbers (DN),
call park numbers, call pickup numbers, conference numbers, route patterns,
translation patterns, message-waiting indicators, voice mail ports, and
Cisco CallManager Attendant Console pilot numbers in the system. The route
plan report allows you to view either a partial or full list and to go directly to the
associated configuration windows by clicking the Pattern/Directory Number,
Partition, or Route Detail fields.
In addition, the route plan report allows you to save report data into a .csv file that
you can import into other applications. The .csv file contains more detailed
information than the web pages, including directory numbers for phones, route
patterns, pattern usage, device name, and device description.
Cisco CallManager uses the route plan to route both internal calls and external
public switched telephone network (PSTN) calls. For more detailed information
on the route plan, refer to the “Understanding Route Plans” section in
Cisco CallManager System Guide.

Cisco IPMA Configuration Wizard
With the Cisco IPMA Configuration Wizard, IPMA configuration takes less time
and eliminates errors. The partitions, calling search spaces, route point, and
translation pattern automatically get created when the administrator successfully
runs and completes the configuration wizard. The wizard also creates BAT
templates for the IPMA manager phone, the IPMA assistant phone, and all other
users phones. The administrator can use the BAT templates to configure the
managers, assistants, and all other users. Refer to the Bulk Administration Tool
User Guide.
The Cisco IPMA Configuration Wizard provides windows for each configuration
parameter. The windows provide the administrator with preconfigured
information. If the administrator prefers to use other configuration information
(for example, partition names), the administrator can change the preconfigured
information to the appropriate information.
For more information on how to use the Cisco IPMA Configuration Wizard, refer
to the Cisco IPMA Configuration Wizard in the Cisco CallManager Features and
Services Guide.

Cisco CallManager Attendant Console
Configuration
Cisco CallManager Attendant Console, a client-server application, allows you to
set up Cisco IP Phones as attendant consoles. Employing a graphical user
interface, the attendant console uses speed-dial buttons and quick directory access
to look up phone numbers, monitor line status, and direct calls. A receptionist or
administrative assistant can use the attendant console to handle calls for a
department or company, or another employee can use it to manage his own
telephone calls.
The attendant console installs on a PC with IP connectivity to the
Cisco CallManager system. The attendant console works with a Cisco IP Phone
that is registered to a Cisco CallManager system. Multiple attendant consoles can
connect to a single Cisco CallManager system.
The application registers with and receives call-dispatching, login, line state, and
directory services from the Cisco Telephony Call Dispatcher (TCD) service.

Cisco CallManager Administration Guide
OL-4659-01
26-19
Chapter 26
Cisco CallManager Attendant Console Configuration
Configuring Hunt Groups
Step 4
Decide whether the hunt group member that you want to add will be a directory
number (device member) or a user and line number (user member):
•
Note
•
Step 5
If you specify a directory number, Cisco TCD always attempts to route the
call to that number.
Cisco TCD handles overflow conditions by routing calls to multiple
attendant consoles or voice-mail numbers. In the Hunt Group
Configuration window, check the Always Route Member check box, so
the voice-mail number receives multiple calls at the same time.
If you specify an attendant console user and line number, Cisco TCD first
checks whether the attendant console user is logged in to an attendant console
and online before attempting to route the call. When you specify a user and
line number, the user can log in to and receive calls on any Cisco IP Phone in
the cluster that the attendant console controls.
Enter the appropriate configuration settings for the new hunt group member as
described in Table 26-3:
•
If the hunt group member is a directory number, fill in only the Partition and
Directory Number fields in the Device Member Information section. The
optional Always Route Member check box only applies to directory numbers.
•
If the hunt group member is a user and line number, fill in only the User Name
and Line Number fields in the User Member Information section.
Note
The User Name that you specify designates an attendant console user.
This user does not duplicate a User ID that is added through the
Cisco CallManager User area of Cisco CallManager Administration.
As you make selections, the Hunt Group Members list box reflects the
information that you choose. The Hunt Group Members list displays either the
device directory number or the attendant console user name and line number; for
example:
#1 Call directory number 35201 (directory number example)
#2 Direct Call to Mary Brown, Line 1 (user and line number example)

Customizing an Announcement
Customizing an Announcement
If you want to customize a Cisco-provided announcement, perform the following
procedure:
Procedure
Step 1
Save a backup copy of all wave files that you plan to modify.
Step 2
Copy an existing announcement wave file from the original language or country
directory in C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath to a temporary directory. You will
edit the file in the temporary directory.
Caution
Only copy the base announcement wave file that does not have a codec name in
the file name; for example, ANNMLPP-BPA.wav
Step 3
Edit the file with sound-editing software, such as Microsoft Sound Recorder or
Adobe Audition from Adobe.
Tip
If you want to do so, you can insert custom recordings from a recording
studio.
Step 4
Verify that the Cisco MOH Audio Translator service runs on a Cisco CallManager
server.
Step 5
Choose Service > Service Parameters.
Step 6
Choose the server where the Cisco MOH Audio Translator service runs.
Step 7
Choose the Cisco MOH Audio Translator service.
Step 8
Modify the service parameter, Default MOH Volume Level, to -6. Modifying this
service parameter to -6 increases the volume of the announcement.
Step 9
On the server where the Cisco MOH Audio Translator service runs, copy the
modified wave file to the following directory:
C:\Program Files\Cisco\MOH\DropMOHAudioSourceFilesHere
The file converts into 4 wave files for the supported codecs.
Cisco CallManager Administration Guide
27-10
OL-4659-01
Chapter 27
Annunciator Configuration
Customizing an Announcement
Step 10
On the server that runs the Cisco TFTP service, move the five .wav files and the
one .xml file from the MOH directory to the locale directory that exists in
C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath.
For example, you could move the files to the following directory, if the locale
applies:
C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath\English_United_States
Caution
If you do not move the files, the server considers the files to be valid music audio
sources.
Step 11
Copy the five .wav files and the one .xml file to all servers that run the Cisco IP
Voice Media Streaming Application service.
Step 12
Back up the modified announcement files.
Caution
Step 13
You must restore these files after any Cisco CallManager upgrade. The
Cisco CallManager upgrade does not retain these files.
Update the service parameter value in Step 5 to the default, that is, -24. When you
restore this value, the volume that is used for Music On Hold decreases.

Media Termination Point
Configuration
A Media Termination Point (MTP) software device allows Cisco CallManager to
relay calls that are routed through SIP or H.323 endpoints or gateways.
MTP, a Cisco software application, installs on a server during the software
installation process. You must activate and start the Cisco IP Voice Media
Streaming App service on the server on which you configure the MTP device. For
information on activating and starting services, refer to the Cisco CallManager
Serviceability Administration Guide.
Each MTP device that is defined in the database registers with the Media
Resource Manager (MRM). The MRM keeps track of the total available MTP
devices in the system and of which devices have available resources.
During resource reservation, the MRM determines the number of resources and
identifies the media resource type (in this case, the MTP) and the location of the
registered MTP device. The MRM updates its share resource table with the
registration information and propagates the registered information to the other
Cisco CallManagers within the cluster.
The MTP and transcoder can register with the same Cisco CallManager. See the
“Transcoder Configuration” section on page 30-1 for more information.
Each MTP receives a list of Cisco CallManagers, in priority order, to which it
should attempt to register. Each MTP can register with only one
Cisco CallManager at a time.

Because you might have several media termination points in your network,
Cisco CallManager lets you locate specific media termination points on the basis
of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate media termination
points.
Note
During your work in a browser session, Cisco CallManager Administration
retains your media termination point search preferences. If you navigate to other
menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco CallManager Administration
retains your media termination point search preferences until you modify your
search or close the browser.

Transcoder Configuration
The Media Resource Manager (MRM) has responsibility for resource registration
and resource reservation of transcoders within a Cisco CallManager cluster.
Cisco CallManager simultaneously supports registration of both the Media
Termination Point (MTP) and Transcoder and concurrent MTP and transcoder
functionality within a single call.
The Cisco CallManager invokes a transcoder on behalf of endpoint devices when
the two devices are using different codecs and would normally not be able to
communicate. When inserted into a call, the transcoder converts the data streams
between the two disparate codecs to enable communications between them.
A transcoder control process gets created for each transcoder device that is
defined in the database. Each transcoder registers with the MRM when it
initializes. The MRM keeps track of the transcoder resources and advertises their
availability throughout the cluster.

Media resource management comprises working with media resource groups and
media resource group lists. Media resource management provides a mechanism
for managing media resources, so all Cisco CallManagers within a cluster can
share them. Media resources provide conferencing, transcoding, media
termination, annunciator, and music on hold services.
You can associate a Media Resource Group, a logical grouping of media servers,
with a geographical location or with a site as desired. You can also form Media
Resource Groups to control the usage of servers or the type of service (unicast or
multicast) that is desired.
You can group devices of the following types into a single Media Resource Group:
•
Conference Bridge (CFB)
•
Media Termination Point (MTP)
•
Music On Hold Server (MOH)
•
Transcoder (XCODE)
•

Call Pickup and Group Call Pickup
Configuration
Two features, call pickup and group call pickup, allow you to answer a call that
comes in on a directory number other than your own. When you hear an incoming
call ringing on another phone, you can redirect the call to your phone by using the
call pickup feature.
Cisco IP Phones provide two types of call pickup:
•
Call pickup allows users to pick up incoming calls within their own group.
Cisco CallManager automatically dials the appropriate call pickup group
number when a user activates this feature on a phone.
•
Group call pickup allows users to pick up incoming calls within their own
group or in other groups. Users must dial the appropriate call pickup group
number when a user activates this feature on a phone.
The following sections describe the procedures for configuring both of these
features:

Cisco IP Phone Services
Configuration
Using Cisco CallManager Administration, you define and maintain the list of
Cisco IP Phone Services to which users can subscribe at their site. Cisco IP Phone
Services comprise XML applications that enable the display of interactive content
with text and graphics on Cisco IP Phones 7970, 7960, 7940, 7912, and 7905.
Note
Cisco IP Phones 7912 and 7905 only support text-based XML applications.
Cisco CallManager provides sample Cisco IP Phone Services applications. You
can also create customized Cisco IP Phone applications for your site.
After you configure the list of services, you can add services to the phones in the
database and assign them to phone buttons. In Cisco CallManager
Administration, you can view and modify settings for phones and device profiles.
Users can log on to the Cisco IP Phone User Options application and subscribe to
these services for their Cisco IP Phones.

Mask
Specify the mask used to format the voice-mail box
number for auto-registered phones. When forwarding a
call to voice mail from a directory line on an
auto-registered phone, Cisco CallManager applies this
mask to the number that is configured in the Voice Mail
Box field for that directory line.
For example, if you specify a mask of 972813XXXX,
the voice-mail box number for directory number 7253
becomes 9728137253. If you do not enter a mask, the
voice-mail box number is the same as the directory
number (7253 in this example).
By default, Cisco CallManager sets the voice-mail box
number to the same value as the directory number. You
can change the voice-mail box number when configuring
the directory number. See the “Configuring Directory
Numbers” section on page 49-39 for more information.

CTI Route Point Configuration
A computer telephony integration (CTI) route point designates a virtual device
that can receive multiple, simultaneous calls for application-controlled
redirection.
For first-party call control, you can optionally add a CTI port for each active voice
line (the CTI application determines this). Applications that use CTI route points
and CTI ports include Cisco SoftPhone, Cisco IP Auto Attendant, and
Cisco IP Interactive Voice Response System. After you add a CTI route point to
Cisco CallManager Administration, information from the RIS Data Collector
service displays in the CTI Route Point Configuration window. When available,
the IP address of the device and the name of the Cisco CallManager with which
the device registered display.
For detailed instructions on how to configure CTI route points and CTI ports that
are associated with these applications, refer to the documentation and online help
that is included with these applications.

Device Profile Configuration
A device profile comprises the set of attributes (services and/or features) that are
associated with a particular device. Device profiles include name, description,
phone template, add-on modules, softkey templates, multilevel precedence and
preemption (MLPP) information, directory numbers, subscribed services, and
speed-dial information. Two kinds of device profiles exist: autogenerated and
user. You can assign the user device profile to a user, so, when the user logs in to
a device, the user device profile that you have assigned to that user loads onto that
device as a default login device profile. After a user device profile is loaded onto
the phone, the phone picks up the attributes of that device profile.
You can also assign a user device profile to be the default logout device profile for
a particular device. When a user logs out of a phone, for instance, the logout
device profile loads onto the phone and gives that phone the attributes of the
logout device profile. In the Cisco CallManager Administration windows, you can
create, modify, or delete the user device profile. If a user device profile is used as
the logout device profile, you cannot delete the user device profile.
The autogenerated device profile, which is a special device profile, gets generated
when you configure a phone for Cisco CallManager Extension Mobility and
choose “Use Current Device Settings” from the Phone Configuration window.
The autogenerated device profile then associates with a specific phone to be the
logout device profile.
Cisco CallManager also supports a device profile default. Use the device profile
default for whenever a user logs on to a phone model for which no user device
profile exists. To create a device profile default for each phone model that
supports Cisco Extension Mobility, use the Device Profile Default Configuration
window. The maximum number of device profile defaults cannot exceed the

Device Profile Default Configuration
Use the device profile default for whenever a user logs on to a phone model for
which no user device profile exists. To create a device profile default for each
phone model that supports Cisco Extension Mobility, use the Device Profile
Default Configuration window. The maximum number of device profile defaults
cannot exceed the number of phone models that support Cisco CallManager
Extension Mobility.
For example, a user logs on to a Cisco IP Phone model 7960, for which there is a
user device profile. The user device profile for the user gets downloaded to the
phone to which the user logged on. Later, the same user logs on to a
Cisco IP Phone model 7940, for which he does not have a user device profile. In
this case, the device profile default for the model 7940 gets downloaded to the
phone.
A device profile default comprises the set of attributes (services and/or features)
that are associated with a particular device. Device profiles include device type,
user locale, phone button template, softkey template, multilevel precedence and
preemption (MLPP) information, and Cisco IP Phone services.

Gatekeeper Configuration
A gatekeeper device, also known as a Cisco Multimedia Conference Manager
(MCM), supports the H.225 Registration, Admission, and Status Protocol (RAS)
message set that is used for call admission control, bandwidth allocation, and dial
pattern resolution (call routing). The gatekeeper provides these services for
communications between Cisco CallManager clusters and H.323 networks. You
can configure multiple gatekeeper devices per Cisco CallManager cluster. You
can configure alternate gatekeepers for redundancy. Refer to MCM
documentation for alternate gatekeeper configuration details.
Gatekeeper configuration comprises two components:
•
Cisco CallManager configuration. Each Cisco CallManager cluster can
register with one or more gatekeepers. This chapter describes how to
configure the gatekeeper in Cisco CallManager. You also need to configure
trunk devices on the Trunk Configuration window. See the Trunk
Configuration chapter.
•
Gatekeeper configuration on the router. This type of configuration applies to
a Cisco IOS Multimedia Conference Manager (MCM) that acts as the
gatekeeper. Recommended platforms for the gatekeeper include Cisco 2600,
3600, or 7200 routers with Cisco IOS Release 12.1(3)T or higher. Refer to the
MCM documentation for information on configuring the gatekeeper.
Alternate gatekeeper configuration occurs in the MCM only, so no
configuration is necessary in Cisco CallManager.

Resetting a Gatekeeper
Resetting a gatekeeper does not mean that the physical device is reset; instead,
resetting forces the Cisco CallManager to reset the logical connection to the
gatekeeper and to reregister with the gatekeeper. During this time of reregistering
and until successful registration, new calls that are made by using this trunk,
which uses this gatekeeper, fail. Perform the following procedure to reset a
gatekeeper.
Note
Resetting a gatekeeper does not cause all active calls that this gatekeeper controls
to be dropped; however, new call attempts fail.
Procedure
Step 1
Locate the gatekeeper by using the procedure in the “Finding a Gatekeeper”
section on page 47-2.
Step 2
From the list of matching records, choose the gatekeeper that you want to reset.
Step 3
If you changed any settings for the Gatekeeper Device, click Reset Gatekeeper.
The Reset Device dialog displays.
Step 4
Click one of the following choices:
•
Restart—Restarts the internal gatekeeper device to update it with the new
gatekeeper configuration without dropping calls.
•
Reset—Shuts down, then restarts, the internal gatekeeper device. The
Cisco CallManager cluster unregisters (URQ) and then reregisters (RRQ)
with the gatekeeper.
•
Close—Closes the Reset Device dialog without performing any action.

Gateways and ports use a variety of configuration information such as partitions,
device pools, and directory numbers. Before updating or deleting gateways or
ports, you can find configuration information about that gateway and port by
using the Dependency Records link. For more information about this link, see the
“Dependency Records” appendix.
Deleting Gateways

If you try to delete a gateway that a route group is using, Cisco CallManager
displays an error message.To find out which route groups are using the gateway,
click the Dependency Records link from the Gateway Configuration window. If
the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency records
summary window displays a message. For more information about dependency
records, see the “Accessing Dependency Records” section on page A-3. Before
deleting a gateway that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the
following tasks:
•
Assign a different gateway to any route groups that are using the gateway that
you want to delete. See the “Adding Devices to a Route Group” section on
page 19-4.
•
Delete the route groups that are using the gateway that you want to delete. See
the “Deleting a Route Group” section on page 19-7.

Configuring Cisco IP Phones
You can automatically add phones to the Cisco CallManager database by using
auto-registration, manually add phones by using the phone configuration
windows, or add phones in groups with the Cisco Bulk Administration Tool
(BAT).
By enabling auto-registration, you can automatically add a Cisco IP Phone to the
Cisco CallManager database when you connect the phone to your IP telephony
network. During auto-registration, Cisco CallManager assigns the next available
sequential directory number to the phone. In many cases, you might not want to
use auto-registration; for example, if you want to assign a specific directory
number to a phone.
Note
Cisco recommends using auto-registration in small configurations or testing labs
only.
If you configure the clusterwide security mode to secure mode,
Cisco CallManager disables auto-registration.

Configuring Cisco IP Phones
If you do not use auto-registration, you must manually add phones to the
Cisco CallManager database or use BAT. BAT, a plug-in application, makes it
possible for system administrators to perform batch add, modify, and delete
operations on large numbers of Cisco IP Phones. Refer to the Bulk Administration
Tool Guide for Cisco CallManager for detailed instructions on using BAT.
After you add a Cisco IP Phone to Cisco CallManager Administration, the RIS
Data Collector service displays the device name, registration status, and the IP
address of the Cisco CallManager to which the phone is registered in the Phone
Configuration window.

domain, the phone uses the proxy server to access the
URL. If the phone is configured in cisco.com domain, the
phone accesses the URL without using the proxy because
the phone is in the same domain as the URL.
If you do not configure this URL, the phone attempts to
connect directly to the URL.

Removing a Directory Number From a Phone
Perform the following procedure to remove a directory number from a specific
phone.
Before You Begin
If you try to remove a directory number that is in use, Cisco CallManager displays
a warning message. To find out which line groups are using the directory number,
click the Dependency Records link from the Directory Number Configuration
window. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency
records summary window displays a message. For more information about
dependency records, see the “Accessing Dependency Records” section on
page A-3.
When you remove a directory number from a phone, the number still exists within
Cisco CallManager. To see a list of directory numbers that are not associated with
phones, use the Route Plan Report menu option. For more information, see the
“Deleting Unassigned Directory Numbers” section on page 24-4.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose Device > Phone.
The Find and List Phones window displays.
Step 2
Enter the search criteria to locate a specific phone and click Find.
A list of phones that match the search criteria displays.
Step 3
Choose the device name that contains the directory number that you want to
remove.
The Phone Configuration window displays.
Step 4
From the Directory Numbers list, choose the line that you want to remove.
The Directory Number Configuration window displays.
Step 5
Click Remove from Device.
A message displays to verify that you want to remove the directory number from
the phone.

Field
Description
Directory Number
Directory Number
Enter a dialable phone number. Values can include
numeric characters and route pattern wildcards and
special characters except for (.) and (@).
Note
When a pattern is used as a directory number, the
display on the phone and the caller ID displaying
on the dialed phone will both contain characters
other than digits. To avoid this, Cisco
recommends that you provide a value for Display
(Internal Caller ID), Line text label, and External
phone number mask. These fields are described
in Table 49-3.
The directory number that you enter can appear in more
than one partition.
Note
If a JTAPI or TAPI application controls or
monitors a device, you should not configure
multiple instances of the same DN (with different
partitions) on that device.
Shared Line next to the directory number means that the
directory number appears on more than one device in the
same partition. Refer to “Directory Numbers” in the
Cisco CallManager System Guide for more information.

Description
Calling Search Space Choose the appropriate calling search space. A calling
search space comprises a collection of partitions that are
searched for numbers that are called from this directory
number. The value that you choose applies to all devices
that are using this directory number.
Note
Changes result in an update of the numbers that
are listed in the Call Pickup Group field.
You can configure calling search space for Forward All,
Forward Busy, Forward No Answer, and Forward on
Failure directory numbers. The value that you choose
applies to all devices that are using this directory
number.
If you set the Forward All Calling Search Space field to
<None>, Cisco CallManager uses the calling search
spaces of the line and the phone when the user forwards
calls by using the Cisco IP Phone User Options windows
or the CFwdAll softkey on the phone. If you want to
restrict users from forwarding calls on their phones, you
must choose a restrictive calling search space from the
Forward All Calling Search Space field; for example:
You have two calling search spaces: Building and PSTN.
The Building calling search space only allows users to
call within the building, while the PSTN calling search
space allows users to call within and outside the building.
You assign the phone to the Building calling search space
and the line on your phone to the PSTN calling search
space. If you set the Call Forward All calling search
space to <None>, Cisco CallManager can forward calls
to any number within the PSTN or building calling
search spaces. To prevent the user from forwarding calls
to numbers outside the building, set the Call Forward All
calling search space to Building.
For more information, refer to Partitions and Calling
Search Spaces, in the Cisco CallManager System Guide.

Description
Multiple Call/Call Waiting Settings
Maximum Number
of Calls
You can configure up to 200 calls for a line on a device,
with the limiting factor being the total number of calls
that are configured on the device. As you configure the
number of calls for one line, the calls that are available
for another line decrease.
The default specifies 4. If the phone does not allow
multiple calls for each line, the default specifies 2.
For CTI route points, you can configure up to 10,000
calls for each port. The default specifies 5000 calls. Use
this field in conjunction with the Busy Trigger field.
Tip
Busy Trigger
To review how this setting works for devices with
shared line appearances, refer to “Shared Line
Appearance” in the Cisco CallManager System
Guide.
This setting, which works in conjunction with Maximum
Number of Calls and Call Forward Busy, determines the
maximum number of calls to be presented at the line. If
maximum number of calls is set for 50 and the busy
trigger is set to 40, then incoming call 41 gets rejected
with a busy cause (and will get forwarded if Call Forward
Busy is set). If this line is shared, all the lines must be
busy before incoming calls get rejected.
Use this field in conjunction with Maximum Number of
Calls for CTI route points. The default specifies 4500
calls.

Device Pool
Choose the appropriate device pool for the trunk.
For trunks, device pools specify a list of
Cisco CallManagers that the trunk uses to distribute
the call load dynamically.
Note
Calls that are initiated from a phone that is
registered to a Cisco CallManager that does
not belong to the trunk’s device pool use
different Cisco CallManagers of this device
pool for different outgoing calls. Selection
of Cisco CallManager nodes occurs in a
random order.
A call that is initiated from a phone that is
registered to a Cisco CallManager that does
belong to the trunk’s device pool uses the
same Cisco CallManager node for outgoing
calls if the Cisco CallManager is up and
running.
Media Resource Group
List
This list provides a prioritized grouping of media
resource groups. An application chooses the
required media resource, such as a Music On Hold
server, from among the available media resources
according to the priority order that is defined in a
Media Resource Group List.
Location
Choose the appropriate location for the trunk. The
location specifies the total bandwidth that is
available for calls between this location and the
central location, or hub. A location setting of None
specifies unlimited available bandwidth.

Phone Button Template Configuration
Cisco CallManager includes several default phone button templates. When adding
phones, you can assign one of these templates to the phones or create a new
template.
Creating and using templates provides a fast way to assign a common button
configuration to a large number of phones. For example, if users in your company
do not use the conference feature, you can create a template that reassigns this
button to a different feature, such as speed dial.
Make sure that all phones have at least one line assigned. Normally, this is
button 1. You can assign additional lines to a phone, depending on the
Cisco IP Phone model. Phones also generally have several features, such as speed
dial and call forward, that are assigned to the remaining buttons.

button templates:

Softkey Template Configuration
Softkey template configuration allows the administrator to manage softkeys that
the Cisco IP Phones (such as model 7960) support. Cisco CallManager supports
two types of softkey templates: standard and nonstandard. Applications that
support softkeys can have one or more standard softkey templates that are
associated with them; for example, Cisco IPMA has the Standard IPMA Assistant,
the Standard IPMA Manager, and the Standard IPMA Manager Shared Mode
softkey templates associated with it. You cannot modify standard softkey
templates.
The administrator can copy, update, or delete nonstandard softkey templates by
using softkey template configuration.

Searching the Global Directory
The Global Directory for Cisco CallManager contains every user within a
Cisco CallManager directory. Cisco CallManager uses Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol (LDAP) to interface with a directory that contains user
information. Cisco supports this embedded directory with Cisco CallManager.
Maintaining the associations of devices with users describes its primary purpose.
Using either a basic or an advanced user search, you can access the Global
Directory.
See the “Adding a New User” section on page 53-1 for details on adding and
configuring a new user.
The following topics contain information on searching the Global Directory:
•
Using Basic Search, page 54-1
•
Using Advanced Search, page 54-3
•
Global Directory Search Tips, Cisco CallManager System Guide
Using Basic Search
The Basic User search utility searches the first name, last name, and user ID fields
for matches of any substring that you enter as search criteria. For example, if you
enter “li” in the search field, the search results include users whose first name, last
name, or user ID matches that substring. If you enter two or more substrings that
are separated by spaces, the search looks for matches for any substring in any of
the three search fields.

Global Directory Search Tips, Cisco CallManager System Guide
Using Advanced Search
With the Advanced User Search utility, you can enter search criteria by using four
search fields and built-in Boolean logic to perform more complex searches. If you
enter two or more names or substrings that are separated by spaces in any one
field, the search looks for matches where any of your specified criteria is true. For
example, if you enter “john jerry,” the search returns all users whose first names
are John or Jerry. If you enter a substring in two or more search fields, the search
looks for matches where both criteria are true. For example, if you enter “Ling”
for first name and “Chu” for last name, the search returns the user named Ling
Chu.
Tip

Multilevel Administration Access
Configuration
Multilevel administration access (MLA) allows users with full access to configure
different levels of administration access for Cisco CallManager administrators.
Users with full access configure functional groups, user groups, and access
privileges for user groups. In general, full-access users configure the access of
other users to Cisco CallManager Administration.
Three levels of access exist: full access, read-only access, and no access. These
differ as follows:
•
Users with full access can view and modify the Cisco CallManager
Administration pages that belong to the functional groups to which the user’s
user group has full access.
•
A user with read-only access can view the Cisco CallManager Administration
pages that belong to the functional groups to which the user’s user group has
read-only access. A user with read-only access cannot, however, make any
changes on the administration pages to which the user has only read-only
access. For a user with read-only access, Cisco CallManager grays out all
buttons and disables icons that modify Cisco CallManager configuration
information.
•
A user with no access can neither view nor change the Cisco CallManager
Administration pages that belong to the functional groups to which the user’s
user group has no access.

Dependency Records
This appendix provides information about the dependency record windows in
Cisco CallManager Administration. These windows help you to determine which
records in the database use other records. For example, you can determine which
devices (such as CTI route points or phones) use a particular calling search space.
If you need to delete a record from Cisco CallManager, you can use dependency
records to show which records are associated with the record that you want to
delete. You can then reconfigure those records, so they are associated with a
different record.
This appendix contains the following sections:
•
Enabling Dependency Records, page A-1
•
Disabling Dependency Records, page A-2
•
Accessing Dependency Records, page A-3
•

Choose System > Enterprise Parameters.
Step 2
Scroll to the CCMAdmin Parameters area of the window.
Step 3
From the Enable Dependency Records drop-down list box, choose True.
A dialog box displays with a message about the consequences of enabling the
dependency records. Read the information carefully before clicking OK.
Step 4
Click OK.
The field displays True.
Step 5
Click Update.
Step 6
Close the browser that you are using; then, reopen the browser. This makes the
parameter take affect for the entire system.
Disabling Dependency Records
If you have dependency records enabled and your system is experiencing CPU
usage issues, you can disable dependency records. (The system disables
dependency records by default.) To disable the dependency records, perform the
following procedure.
Procedure
Step 1
Choose System > Enterprise Parameters.
Step 2
Scroll to the CCMAdmin Parameters area of the window.
Step 3
From the Enable Dependency Records drop-down list box, choose False.
A dialog box displays with a message about dependency records. Read the
information carefully before clicking OK.

Removing a Subscriber Server from
Cisco CallManager
You delete a subscriber server from the Cisco CallManager cluster by using the
Server Configuration window in Cisco CallManager Administration. This
deletion, however, deletes the server from the Cisco CallManager Administration
database, but not all of the server dependencies get deleted.
To fully delete a server from the system, you must perform the following steps:
1.
Remove all dependencies from the server; for example, delete the
Cisco CallManager service. See the “Deleting a Server” section on page 2-5.
2.
Remove the server from Cisco CallManager Administration. See the
“Deleting a Server” section on page 2-5.
3.
Run a script file that removes the SQL replication information from the
database. See the “Remove SQL Replication Information” section on
page B-2.
4.
Run a script file that removes the DCD replication agreements from the
publisher if Cisco CallManager cluster is integrated with local DCDirectory.
See the “Remove Redundant DCD Replication Agreements” section on
page B-3.

Remove SQL Replication Information
Remove SQL Replication Information
After the server is removed by using Cisco CallManager Administration, run the
script file to remove the SQL replication information. A script file exists for the
publisher server and one for the subscriber server.
Run RemoveServerFromDB.bat Script on Publisher
Execute the RemoveServerFromDB.bat script file from the Cisco CallManager
publisher server that you want to remove. This script runs from the command
prompt from any directory.
Tip
To view the procedure that runs the script, run the script with no parameters.
From any directory on the publisher server, enter the following command:
<path where you saved the script>:\RemoveServerFromDB “server” “database”
“name_of_server_to_delete_from_ProcessNode.Name”
When this command gets run from the command prompt, errors display; no
separate error log file gets generated.
To view the contents of the script file, see the “Contents of the
RemoveServerFromDB.bat Script File” section on page B-3.
Run RemoveSubscription.bat Script on Subscriber
Execute the RemoveSubscription.bat script file from the Cisco CallManager
subscriber server that you want to remove. This script runs from the command
prompt from any directory.
Tip
To view the procedure that runs the script, run the script with no parameters.
From any directory on the subscriber server, enter the following command:
<path where you saved the script>:\RemoveSubscription “server” “database”

When this command runs from the command prompt, errors display; no separate
error log file gets generated.
To view the contents of the script file, see the “Contents of the
RemoveSubscription.bat Script File” section on page B-5.
Remove Redundant DCD Replication Agreements
After the subscriber server is removed from the cluster, clean its DCD replication
information from the publisher DCD by running the clean_publisher script. The
script file only executes on the publisher server.
You can access the script on Cisco CallManager release 3.3 and above. It gets
installed on the Cisco CallManager server during installation of Cisco Directory
component.
From any directory on the publisher server, enter the following command:
c:Clean_publisher.cmd
The script file removes the replication agreements to all nonexistent subscribers
from the publisher DCD. It does not delete or modify existing data.
Note
If administrator removes the server without running the Clean_publisher.cmd
script and then adds the server back with the same host name into the same cluster
from where it was removed, the DCD script that is used to configure the
subscriber DCD will clean up the previous DCD replication agreement from the
publisher DCD database during the Directory installation of the
Cisco CallManager installation on the server.
