License counts in Cisco Unified Communication 7.0?

Answered Question

Hi,


In our Cisco Unified Communication 7.0 installation, I have begun a project to release some licenses by deleting the physical phones that have the "unknown" status in the IP-address field.


I do the same thing with the ATA-units with the "unknown" status in the IP-address field.


Now I wonder... what about the phone number in the Call-Manager? Do they count a license in any way? Or are they for free as the end-users?


Kind regards,

Carl-Marius

Hi Carl-Marius,


Excellent question


In CUCM Licensing the Directory Numbers/DN's do not consume

any Licenses. When you remove the "Unknown" phones make sure

to copy the MAC/DN/Description etc. just in case someone calls in

a week from now with a "dead" phone trouble report when they pull

the phone out of their desk and plug it back in


Also, make sure to remove the DN from the Route Plan report>Unassigned DN

section of CUCM admin to fully free up the Directory number.


Cheers!

Rob

Hi Rob,


Thank you for your answer! I will copy the information about the ATA and phones before I delete them!
