Hi,

Day to day task for an IPCC engineer totally depends on individual.

I can try and highlight some task

 Anti Virus update on the windows servers (as per Cisco recommendation)

 Making few inbound and outbound calls at the start of the day, just to make sure every thing is in place.

 Logging on Gateway and check the calls, ISDN status if all the ISDN interfaces are active and taking calls as you expected.

 Jump on to the Gatekeeper and have a look, if all the expected endpoints are registered with GK.

 Check which side of PG is active, if there was a fail over investigate the cause for it.

 Check the event log message on all Windows servers to find out if there was any issue.

 If your using Cisco works, check if its backing up the IOS data as expected.

 If you?re using any SNMP tool, check the events to find if there was any issue over night.

This are just day to day health check advice, I am sure you can do a lot in IPCC. Best of luck

Regards,

Musa

For Callmanager:

- Check RTMT Emails Alerts

- Check your (daily?)BARS Backup

- Server Report(CPU, Memory), Call Activities, Gateway Activities (Application->Callmanager Serviceablity->tools->Serviceability reports)

- Use DNA, SDI/SDL traces..etc

- once in a while get your Route Plan (*xls), check for unused DN (unassigned DNs)

- Setting a Lab Envirement would be the best if you are a newbie.

- CDRs (Gateway Utilization, QoS, ..etc)

- Read the SRND!!!

For IPCC Ent:

- Always be prepared for a "worst case" Scenario (depends on the Design of your IPCC)

- You should know how to collect logs from your PIMs,PGs, Router, Logger. How to use Dumplog Utility/ CTITEST / SQL Analyzer to troubleshoot day to day issues

- Ensure that Webview (or using SQL Analyzer) are showing the right statistics.

- Check Databases Backup

- Use ICM Script to Monitor your Call Flows.

- Read the SRND!!!

Last Advise: Stay Cool ;)

hope this helps
