apply config button on CallManager 7.1

Unanswered Question
Sep 9th, 2009

Does anyone know what the apply config button on CallManager 7.1 REALLY does?

The release notes makes mention of a "seamless integration feature" but I can't find anything else.

Thanks

I have this problem too.

Hi Michael,

Synchronization of Configuration Settings

Description

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 7.1(2) allows you to use a single button in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to synchronize various devices with the most recent configuration changes. This button gets called "Apply Config" when it is located on a configuration window and gets called "Apply Config to Selected" when it is located in a Find and List window. These buttons apply any outstanding configuration settings in the least-intrusive manner possible. (For example, some devices may not require a reset/restart to apply the configuration.)

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Configuration Tips

To synchronize a device with the most recent configuration changes, perform the following procedure.

Procedure

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

Step 1 Navigate to one of the windows that are listed in Table 24. Table 24 lists all the windows in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, organized by menu, that provide the configuration synchronization function.

The Find and List window for the applicable items displays.

Step 2 Choose the search criteria to use.

Step 3 Click Find.

Step 4 The window displays a list of items that match the search criteria.

a. If the window shows a button that is called Apply Config to Selected, perform the following tasks (otherwise, proceed to b.):

-Check the check boxes next to the items that you want to synchronize. To choose all items in the window, check the check box in the matching records title bar.

-Click Apply Config to Selected.

-Proceed to Step 5.

b. If the window does not show a button that is called Apply Config to Selected, perform the following tasks:

-Click the item that you want to synchronize.

-The configuration window for the item that you clicked displays.

Make any additional configuration changes.

Click Save.

Click Apply Config.

Proceed to Step 5.

Step 5 The Apply Configuration Information dialog displays.

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

Note The device(s) may need to restart for configuration changes to take effect.

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

Click OK.

Thanks Rob, that's a start.

Just have to figure out what changes would (traditionally) automatically restart the phone. (like DN page changes.)

What changes require a reset/restart instead of apply config. Sounds like apply config can be pressed 99% of the time and if a restart or a full reset is required then it will take care of that for you. But there's the question on the line config pages that would traditionally restart the phone without having to press anything.

Thanks for the reply.
