Hi,

I never worked on CCM 5 to 7. I just want to know whether we need to by license and activate in the CCM to register the Cisco IP Phone ? Or the Cisco IP Phone license is just a paper license that cisco bundle with phones.

Thanks.

Licenses Not Requiring a PAK

If you do not have a Product Authorization Key (PAK), please click here for available licenses. (use the please click here link)

Available licenses include Evaluation/Demo Licenses, Cisco ASA 3DES/AES, PIX Firewall 3DES/AES and DES Encryption, Cisco Services for IPS, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Version Upgrade licenses.

Go to;

Voice Products

Then select;

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Device Upgrade License

Here is an overview of the previous info;

Watch out for the note detailed in Step #2 below;

Step 1 After you complete the Cisco Unified Communications Manager upgrade process, navigate to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration and choose System > Licensing > License File Upload.

The License File Upload window displays.

Step 2 Choose the license XML file from the Existing Files drop-down list, and click View File. The window refreshes and displays the information for the selected license. Copy all of the information in this file except the HTML tags. To copy the contents on this window, choose the appropriate text and choose Ctrl-C (Copy).

Step 3 Navigate to the License Registration web tool at https://tools.cisco.com/SWIFT/Licensing/PrivateRegistrationServlet

Step 4 Enter the MAC address of the Ethernet 0 NIC of the first node of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster.

Step 5 In the text box that is provided, paste the license file contents that you copied in Step 2 by using the appropriate keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl-V.

Step 6 Enter a valid e-mail address and click Continue. A license file generates.

The system sends the license file to you via e-mail using the e-mail address that you provided.

Step 7 You must upload the license file to the server with the matching MAC address that you provided in Step 4. See the "Uploading a License File" section.

Step 8 You can obtain licenses for new devices that you are adding to the upgraded system, if your system requires additional device license units.

Have a look at this great tip from Jason;

"when you capture the xml file for the DLUS etc after the upgrade so that you can post it on Cisco's web site, it might be wrapped in HTML. ie the first line and the last line are html, and the license utility will reject it. Remove the first and last line to resolve this."

Here are some other good docs;

Hi Sathasivam,

Just to add a note to the good tips from Gonz. You do need DLU's (Device License Units) for IP Phones in all versions after CUCM 5.x :)

Device License Units (DLUs) are required for each device provisioned in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Each provisioned device consumes some number of DLUs from the total licensed in Cisco Unified Communications Manager, based on the type of device and whether it is an Adjunct Device or not.

After determining how many devices will be provisioned in your system, see the table below to

identify how many DLU's are required.

Device Type - Cost in DLUs

Cisco VGC Phone (Voice Gateway Controlled, e.g. behind VG248)

Cisco VGC Virtual Phone (Voice Gateway Controlled, e.g. behind VG248)

Analog Phone

CTI Port

0 -DLU's

Thanks for the very descriptive answer.

I just want to know, How do we obtain the DLU if we want to upgrade a CCM from 4.X to 6.X ? If Cisco is going to give DLU for free how will they calculate the number of cisco ip phone or DLU that we have ?

Is there any DLU by default comes with fresh installed cisco call Manager ?

Hi Sathasivam,

You are most welcome!

You will need to follow this procedure to migrate your phones and receive the new (**free) DLU's :)

Here is the License info for CCM 5.x and beyond;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_administration_guide_chapter09186a0080531ebb.html

Migrating from Cisco CallManager 4.0(x) to 7.0(x)

When you migrate from Cisco CallManager version 4.0(x) to 7.0(x), the licenses that are required for existing phones and existing Cisco CallManager nodes is calculated and an intermediate file (XML file) that contains these license counts will be generated during the Cisco CallManager migration process. These licenses are given free of cost because you are already using these phones for Cisco CallManager version 4.x. If you are provisioning new phones and nodes after migrating to Cisco CallManager 7.0(x), you need to paste the intermediate license file in the License Registration window on CCO.

Use the following procedure to register existing licenses and request for new licenses.

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

Step 1 In Cisco CallManager Administration, choose System > Licensing > License File Upload.

The License File Upload window displays.

Step 2 Click View File. A pop-up window displays that has the license information for existing phones and nodes. Copy this information. To copy the contents on this windrow, you can use Ctrl-A (Select All) and Ctrl-C (Copy).

Step 3 On the License Registration window of CCO website, in the text box provided, paste the file contents using Ctrl-V.

Step 4 You must enter the MAC address of the Cisco CallManager server that you are requesting the licenses for, and a valid E-mail Id.

Step 5 To obtain the actual license file, click Submit. A license file is generated.

Step 6 You must upload the license file to the server with the matching MAC address that you provided in Step 4. See the "Uploading a License file" section in the Cisco CallManager Administration Guide. This node takes on the functionality of the license manager.
