Question license splitting in CUCM 6.x

Unanswered Question
Feb 14th, 2008

Hi All,

Under the old 4.x model you were able to split the roles of you CCM's without a license penalty.

eg. I have 3 servers licensed but I actualy have 5 servers in the cluster 3 servers running all services except TFTP and IPVMS 2 servers ONLY running TFTP and IPVMS.

This was totaly valid under the license rules for 4.x but now with 6.x there is license enforcement so what I want to know is can I run the same cluster above with only 3 node licenses or will I need to have a full node license for the 2 boxes only doing TFTP and IPVMS?

I am posing this question through my local Cisco guys but thought someone else may have run into it. Any help would be great.



I have this problem too.

AFAIK the CCM node license is only required for the CUCM service. in my lab i have 2 servers, if i shut down the CCM service in the SUB and go to license viewer i get 2 licensed nodes, 1 used and 1 available.

the CCM node license refers to a node in which you will be doing call processing or in which you will have the service running as a backup server.

the TFTP service should not require the license but to be honest i'm not sure if it's required to run IPVMS. according to the test i did in my lab it should not be, since the only service i stopped was the CUCM service and all the others kept running.

Excellent thanks,

That pretty much matches what I thought but I might find some time to lab it as well just to make sure.
