required number of CCM licenses

Answered Question
Sep 17th, 2007

Dear all!

Is it necessary to buy a license for every node in CCM cluster?

We have two nodes in CCM5.1 cluster and we planned two licenses, so I'm just about to check out am I right about number of licenses?

Thanks

Zoran Milenkovic

I have this problem too.

Hi Zoran,

You are most correct :) You require a "Node License" for each Node, so in your design 2 is the proper number;

License File Contents

The license file contains the following information:

**Number of Cisco Unified CallManager nodes that are licensed: This indicates number of Cisco Unified CallManager servers in a cluster that are licensed to the customer.

Versions of the Cisco Unified CallManager that are supported.

Number of phone units licensed: Instead of creating a separate license for each phone type, a concept of unit license is used. Each phone type corresponds to a fixed number of license units.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note To determine the number of license unit that are required for each device, choose System > Licensing > License Unit Calculator. This window lists the number of license units required for each type of device. See the "Calculating License Units" section.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MAC address of the server, where the license file can be installed.

From this good doc;
