CME - GUI adding phones

Unanswered Question
Feb 17th, 2007


I have a CallManager Express 4.0, I had opened in GUI but I am unable to add the phones. I had downloaded the lates basic files for GUI (cme-basic-[1]) and GUI Files.

But when I added IP Phone in Router I am able to modify the same in GUI.

Is there any limitation in CME for adding IP Phones.

Please help.



I have this problem too.

make sure you have "auto-reg-ephone" configured. This way the GUI will recognize new phones.

Thanks a lot for your kind help...

Is there any way to assign Partition and CSS in GUI for Phones.

Thanks in advance.

Karuna, you may be in confusion. CallManager Express don't use CSS and Partions, all the phones are treated equally, and if you want to special things with some of them, there are other means.

Only the latest 12.4-11XJ1 / CME 4.1 has support for assigning COR to a DN using the GUI. However, you still have to configure the COR list in CLI. In general the GUI is so limited that most task are better executed from CLI.
