Once again I turn to the Support Community for help. I have read Both the SRST Administrator guide and the SRST-CME config notes and examples, but am having trouble understanding how the dail peer configuration works.
My deployment is using a CUCMBE and a 2801 CME SRST. So I have configured it as follows for SRST failover:
srst mode auto-provision none
srst dn line-mode dual
In reading the SRST Admin guide, it appears that all of the control of incoming and outgoing calls is controled within the ccm-manager fallback SRST command, but in SRST with CME is it controled by dial peers.Please correct me if I am wrong.
Where I am having trouble is determining if I need two dial peers for every function - one for MGCP back to the CM and one for when in failover mode.
Can anyone help me understand this better?
If you are using MGCP the configuration and signaling of the router is downloaded from UCM. SRST or CME in SRST mode takes over if the MGCP process looses access to the call agent (UCM). The dial peers and other configuration only kicks in when the MGCP failover occurs. Until then all of that config sits dormant.
