Question regarding Feature License in Call Manager Express

Answered Question
Sep 23rd, 2010

Hi,

Customer bought Cisco 2851Voice Bundle w/ PVDM2-48, FL-CCME-100 (Part Number CISCO2851-CCME/K9)

I suppose when you buy a bundle like this, the ISR router has included and loaded (activated) the license to run with 100 IP Phones regardless of the IOS applied (I mean, a IOS with capable with VoIP)

Now, he wants to expand the system to store 150 IP Phones. How could I procced with feaure license?

Is the Feature License (in example FL-CCME-50) a file that should be loaded in the system or is like a PAK in CUCM taht should be uploaded in the Cisco licensing web page?

If was a file, how should load it?

Thanks in advance

I have this problem too.

As Rob was telling before (rated his post), CME does not enforce phone licenses in any way.

Hi Raul,

Sadly the 2851 cannot support 150 phones   Even with the newest CME licensing scheme,

Licenses are Paper based RTU licenses (Right to Use)

Supported Platforms and Memory Specifications: SCCP IP Phones*

* These memory   recommendations and maximum numbers of IP phones are for common Cisco Unified   CME configurations only. Systems with large numbers of phones and complex   configurations may not work on all platforms and can require additional   memory or a higher performance platform.

1.  Total   number of connected IP phones cannot exceed Maximum Total listed including  SCCP and   SIP phones on the same router.

Thank you Rob,

Sorry, I see there is no possibility to add 50 seat license more in this router.

In another scenario, with the possibility to add more licenses, How could I proceed to do it?

When you said: Licenses are Paper based RTU licenses (Right to Use), Do you mean that shouldn't load any new files in the system? Then, how do CM Express realize that we have added more licenses?

Thanks
