Important Considerations

Before you proceed with the Cisco Unified CallManager installation, consider the following requirements and recommendations:

• Be aware that when you install Cisco Unified CallManager 5.1(1) on an existing server, the hard drive gets formatted, and all existing data on the drive gets overwritten.

• Install the Cisco Unified CallManager software on the first node or publisher server first and then on the subsequent nodes.

• Make sure that the subsequent node servers that you are installing can connect to the first node server during the installation.

• Enter the same security password on all servers in the cluster.

• Install the Cisco Unified CallManager software during off-peak hours or a maintenance window to avoid impact from call-processing interruptions.

• Configure the server by using static IP addressing to ensure that the server obtains a fixed IP address and that the Cisco Unified IP Phones can register with the application when you plug the phones into the network.

• Do not attempt to perform any configuration tasks during the installation.

• Do not install any Cisco-verified applications until you complete installing Cisco Unified CallManager on every server in the cluster.

• Carefully read the instructions that follow before you proceed with the installation

Installing Cisco Unified CallManager

The next sections contain the procedures for installing the first and subsequent nodes. Review the following sections carefully before you perform the installation:

• Gathering Information for an Installation

• Handling Network Errors During Installation

• Installing the New Operating System and Application

Gathering Information for an Installation
Use Table 4 to record the information about your Cisco Unified CallManager server. Gather this information for each Cisco Unified CallManager server that you are installing in the cluster. You may not need to obtain all the information; gather only the information that is pertinent to your system and network configuration. You should make copies of this table and record your entries for each server in a separate table, even if you are planning to use the DMABackupInfo.inf file to configure your system.

Note: Because some of the fields are optional, they may not apply to your configuration. For example, you choose not to set up an SMTP host.

Caution: You cannot change some of the fields after installation without reinstalling the software, so be sure to enter the values that you want.

The last column in the table shows whether a field can be changed after installation, and if so, whether you can change it through Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration or through the Command Line Interface (CLI).

Post-Installation Tasks

After installing Cisco Unified CallManager on your server, you must set some configuration parameters for Cisco Unified CallManager and perform other post-installation tasks before you can begin using it. Perform these tasks for the server that you install and complete the tasks before other servers in the cluster are installed.

For post-installation tasks that you must complete after the installation, see Table 6.

  • INSERT TABLE


Changing the Default Cisco Unified CallManager Application User Passwords

Cisco Unified CallManager installation sets all Application User passwords to the same Application User password that you entered during installation. Cisco recommends that you log in to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration and change these passwords. Refer to Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide for the procedure for changing a password.


Accessing Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability

To access Cisco Unified CallManager Administration or Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability, you will need to use a web browser from a PC with network access to the Cisco Unified CallManager server.

Even though all Cisco Unified CallManager services are installed on each server in the cluster, you must manually activate the services that you want to run on each server in the cluster through Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability. For service recommendations and more information, refer to Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide and Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability System Guide.

To activate services through Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability, follow this procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 Open a web browser on a computer with network access to the Cisco Unified CallManager server.

Step 2 Enter the following url:

http://ccm_server:8080/ccmadmin

where ccm_server specifies the IP address or hostname of the Cisco Unified CallManager server.

Step 3 Enter the Cisco Unified CallManager Application user name and password.

Step 4 From the Navigation menu, choose Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability and click Go.

Step 5 From the menu bar, click Tools > Service Activation.

Step 6 Choose a server from the drop-down menu.

Step 7 Check the Service Names check boxes for the services to activate.

Step 8 Click Save.


Configuring the Database

After installing Cisco Unified CallManager, you use Cisco Unified CallManager Administration to begin configuring the database. The Cisco Unified CallManager database contains information and parameters that relate to the system as a whole, to connected devices, and to individual users. The following list describes a few tasks that you must perform in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration or Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability:

1. In Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability, activate the services that you want to run on each server in the cluster.

2. Configure system-level settings, such as Cisco Unified CallManager Groups.

3. Design and configure your dialing plan.

4. Configure media resources for conferences, music on hold, and so on.

5. Configure systemwide features, Cisco Unified IP Phone services, Cisco Unified CallManager Extension Mobility, Cisco Unified CallManager Attendant Console, and Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant.

6. Install and configure the gateways.

7. Enable computer telephony integration (CTI) application support; then, install and configure the desired CTI applications.

8. Configure the users.

9. Configure and install the phones; then, associate users with the phones.

For more information about configuring the Cisco Unified CallManager database, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide, the Cisco Unified CallManager System Guide, or online help in the Cisco Unified CallManager application.

Examining Log Files

If you encounter problems with the installation, you can obtain and examine the install log files by entering the following commands in Command Line Interface.

To obtain a list of install log files from the command line, enter

CLI>file list install

To view the log file from the command line, enter

CLI>file view install log_file

where log_file is the log file name.

You can also view logs by using the Cisco Unified CallManager Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT). For more information on using and installing the Cisco Unified CallManager RTMT, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability Administration Guide.

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

• For emergencies only —  security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

• For nonemergencies —  psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

• 1 877 228-7302

• 1 408 525-6532
Tip
- We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product (for example, GnuPG) to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work with information that has been encrypted with PGP versions 2.x through 9.x.
- Never use a revoked encryption key or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html
The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.
- If you do not have or use PGP, contact PSIRT to find other means of encrypting the data before sending any sensitive material.
