Can anyone please tell me if Cisco CME Voice Recording licences need to be annually updated?

Hi Manthan,

Cisco Unified CME Permanent License

When you purchase a Cisco Unified CME permanent license, the permanent  license is installed on the device when the product is shipped to you. A  permanent license never expires and you will gain access to that  particular feature set for the lifetime of the device across all IOS  release. If you purchase a permanent license for Cisco Unified CME , you  do not have to go through the Evaluation Right to Use and Right To Use  (RTU) licensing processes for using the features. If you want to  purchase a CME-SRST license for your existing device, you have to go  through the RTU licensing process for using the features. There is no  change in the existing process for purchasing the license.


The Cisco Unified CME permanent license is available in the form of an  XML cme-locked3 file. You should get the XML file and load it in the  flash memory of the device. To install the permanent license from the  command prompt, use the license install flash0:cme-locked3 command. The cme-locked3 is the xml file of the license.



Collaboration Professional Suite License


Collaboration Professional is a new suite of licenses. The Collaboration  Professional Suite can be purchased either as a permanent license or an  RTU license.


Collaboration Professional Suite Permanent License —When you purchase  the Collaboration Professional Suite license, by default, the Cisco  Unified CME licenses are delivered as part of the Collaboration  Professional Suite. You do not have to separately install and activate  the Cisco Unified CME license. The Collaboration Professional Suite  permanent license is available in the form of an XML file. You should  get the XML file and load it in the flash memory of the device. To  install the permanent license from the command prompt, use the license install flash:lic_name command.


Collaboration Professional Suite RTU License—When you purchase the  Collaboration Professional Suite RTU license, you do not have to go  through the Evaluation Right to Use process. However, you have to go  through the RTU licensing process for using the Cisco Unified CME  features. To install the Collaboration Professional Suite RTU license  from the command prompt, use the license install flash0:colla_pro command. To activate the license, use the license boot module c2951 technology-package collabProSuitek9 command.

Thanks alot Manish for your details explanation and relevent Url.


I got my answer for Cisco CME Voice Recording licences need to be annually updated or not.


But still I am missing one point that Call Manager Express licences cover the users? I mean any particular CME license we bought, is for particular number of users?
