Enabling GUI on CME (Step by Step procedure) (Configuration + Troubleshooting)

Enabling GUI on CME (Step by Step procedure)

sh flash (Check available flash: memory space)

conf t

ip http server !! enables http functionality on Cisco Router, uses port 80
ip http authentication local !! enables local authentication
no ip http secure-server !! disables https functionality !! you may configure it
ip http path flash:/abc !! look for HTML files in this [abc] directory
!! it doesn't matter whether you copy the HTML files into the flash root directory or in a folder, but if you create a folder you can manage HTML files easily, that's the only advantage

file privilege 0 !! default is 15

!! Specifies the file privilege level for the files. The level argument must be a number from 0 to 15. Users with privilege level equal to greater than the file privilege level can access the files under the file system.

 

telephony-service
web admin system name name1 password pass1         !! you can not set privilege level under Telephony-service for users
dn-webedit !! by default disabled (you can not add extensions) !! You will see notification message in your browser window: "add extension number through web is disabled"
time-webedit  !! by default disabled you can not change the time !! you will see notification message in your browser window: "system time change time through web is not allowed"

 dn-webedit !! by default disabled you can not edit/add new DNs
 
 !! If you don't enable above command then you will see following dialog box (notification message)

Upload the GUI HTML files in the flash:/

dir flash:/abc !! to check the directory content
more flash:/abc.txt !! to check the file content
mkdir flash/folder_name !! to create a directory

archive tar /xtract SOURCE DESTINATION

copy tftp flash: !! (time consuming)

::Troubleshooting & Checkpoints::


debug ip http ?/all
Check the IOS/CME version !! show version !! show telephony-service
Check the GUI version supported !! check CME Compatibility matrix
Check ACL !! port 80 (HTTP) or 443 (Secure/HTTPS)
Browser recommendation is IE / firefox

There is an other option with which we can configure GUI users in global configuration mode (without telephony-service) & there is no need to configure file privilege 0

conf t
username xyz pri 15 pass abc !! we can customize privilege level as per the requirement
file privilege 14     !! we can customize privilege level

!! if I am using SIP endpoints & telephony-service is not enabled then in that case you could configure users in global configuration mode & it also gives you more flexibility to configure privilege level for every user

Mohit, I just wanted to thank you for such a clear and concise walkthrough. I have read through so many the past 2 weeks and yours was the one that finally allowed me to get CME up and running.
