Can't access Cisco CallManager Admin pages after upgrade to CUCM 8.0

Unanswered Question
Sep 15th, 2010

I upgraded one lab cluster from CUCM 6.1.2 to CUCM 8.0. The upgrade completed successfully but I cant access the admin pages after I booted from 8.0 partition. Here is what I see on ssh console for the services.

Cisco CallManager Admin[STOPPED]  Commanded Out of Service

Any thoughts/comments appreciated.



Here is the list of all services on the box.

Have you tried to get access via CLI and restart the Tomcat Service manually?

utils service restart Cisco Tomcat

You can manually restart the services that way, but the access to the CUCM Admin page will depend on Tomcat.
Then you can get access through the serviceability page.

Thanks Tere for the response.

I tried doing it but the service keeps giving me message that its starting. However it never comes up. Intermittently I am getting following messages on my console,

Message from [email protected] at Wed Sep 15 12:39:57 2010 ...
ccm-pub local7 0 : 35: Sep 15 2010 19:39:57.916 UTC :  %UC_CALLMANAGER-0-NoFeatureLicense: %[AppID=Cisco CallManager][ClusterID=CCM-PUB-Cluster][NodeID=ccm-pub]: No feature license found

Hello Mohit,

Well the problem can be as the message says "NoFeatureLicense"...

If a "SW FeatureLicense" is not there services would have problems starting; they would start and stop after a couple of minutes.

Can you try the following:

- Remove all license files.

- Upload the licenses again (Node+Feature+DLU).

- Restart license manager and CM service or if feasable the server and test again.

Best Regards,

Thanks Mahmoud for the response. I have uploaded licenses from admin pages. Is there a way to do it from CLI as I cant get to web server atll?



Jaime Valencia Wed, 09/15/2010 - 17:42

There is no way to install the licenses via CLI, and the fact you're missing the feature license should not affect your ability to open the CCMAdmin or any other page. It will only disable the ccm service until you load the license.

There might have been something wrong during the upgrade process, so you could review the upgrade logs or use the utils system command to switch-back to your old version and try the upgrade again.



If this helps, please rate

I agree with Java, we might need to have a look at the upgrade logs..

but the first thing you need to focus on is on the "Cisco CallManager Admin[STOPPED]  Commanded Out of Service"

You would not be able to access admin pages if this is down..

Have you tried rebooting the box?

Reboot the box and if that does not fix the issue, after rebooting plz post the out put of:

utils service list

show status

also get us the upgrade logs.

Well i guess i will stick to what i said earlier 

As from what is provided so far:

- Call-Manager is reporting a problem with "feature license"

- From service list we can see: Cisco CallManager[STARTING]  not started...

But also we cannot neglect the fact that this should not render the services OOS; as i can see a number of services OOS.

I would suggest you to do the following:

1)      Remove all license files via CLI “file delete license *”.

2)      Reboot the box.

After that can you kindly update us if the you can access GUI or not.

If not I would recommend to do a repair via repair DVD and then proceed from there to solve any SW corruption that might have occured during upgrade.

From what i understand, if we do not hv sw feature licenses for that version, the ccm service will not start, but that does not really effect web/admin pages..

Rebooting the box might help though, if that does not fix it, u might need to open a TAC case so that we can have access to the box to troubleshoot and fix the issue
