Adding a new node to a CUCM cluster

Hi all,

We have installed a 7.1(3) call manager. We would like to add a second node in order to create a cluster. We would like to know what the procedure is for obtaining a second node license.

Thank you very much!!


Re: Adding a new node to a CUCM cluster

If you are using standard CUCM (not business edition), then you'd need to email licensing@ to see what you are entitled to.  If you are already entitled to a second node, they can reissue a new license that allows that.  If you are not, you'll need to work with your Cisco AM to get the appropriate licensing purchased.

Re: Adding a new node to a CUCM cluster

Thank you very much for your answer. They have told me that my L-CM7.0-7825= is only for one node. So, I need to purchase the license for the second node. But, from Cisco TAC they told me that I do not need to purchase a L-CM7.0-7825= license, since it is a software and node license. They told me that there is another part number only for node license (but they did not tell me the part number). I asked about this to my reseller and they did not know anything about that license. Could someone tell me the part number for that only node license?

Thanks again!!


Re: Adding a new node to a CUCM cluster

Hi Inaki,

The part number is definitely L-CM7.0-7825=, I have just installed a cluster with two nodes in myself. I have checked my software licence key from Cisco and I have that as the product name. I have two licences each is assigned against the MAC address of the Publisher.

Be aware that you need to licence both against the Publisher MAC, I made the mistake of registering the Subscriber MAC to the licence and I couldn't upload it.
