CUCM 5.1.3 removing server did not remove from show cluster in OS

Unanswered Question
Apr 2nd, 2008

Just wondering if anyone has seen this - I had someone call in, they had built a Pub, and then were adding 2nd node to the server, in preparation for installing the Sub. They noticed they had used the wrong name, so they deleted it, and added it again correctly. They built the 2nd node, all seemed to be well, and went on and did a bunch of config, and then noticed that it did not appear to be replicating. None of the utils commands to fix replication did anything. They then noticed that in the OS Admin interface, under show cluster, they still saw the incorrectly named Sub, along with the correctly named Sub - suspect that was causing problems, but could not find a way to delete it - it did not show up in the server config in CCMAdmin any more, just in the OS Admin list. They are currently rebuilding, just to get it out the door, but this seems like a real problem!

Thanks for any input on this -

Mary Beth

I have this problem too.

If you are in a production environment, make sure you move all the services off of the server you plan to remove from the cluster. Make sure nothing is registered to it and no dial-peers etc are pointed at it.

Then remove the server using the Callmanager administration. There are some scripts (Bat files) that must be ran to clean up SQL replication and DCD.

Make sure you follow the instructions EXACTLY. If you do not run the scripts correctly you could drop the wrong database/subscription and be SOL. Don't ask how I know this :-)

If you have another CCM version just do a search for "removing a subscriber server from Cisco Callmanager" on cisco.com.
