CallManager ip address Overlapping

Hi all, before i'd like to thank ya for all your supports and help it really helped me and to go forward .

So i have some questions regarding IP Address in CallManager with centralized deployement (CM+SRST):

When i set up two partion for two differents company can i have an overlapping in the IP Address of the IP Phones cauz maybe these two company will have the same range of ip address for their network.

Then for the DHCP, i think that i can use a local DHCP for each site provided by the local router (who would provide SRST for the IP Phones) so correct if i'm wrong . :)

Thanks again

Re: CallManager ip address Overlapping

No, you cannot have overlapping IP addresses. Each phone registered to Callmanager will need a unique IP address. Otherwise, Callmanager or other devices would have no way of knowing to which phone to route packets destined for a given address.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

That is correct.

The Callmanager server and IP phones do not have to be in the same subnet.

Re: CallManager ip address Overlapping

thanks for ur reply but i don't really get the point :) so as you said you mean the dhcp must set up from the the site where callmanager is installed ? if you have any link regarding the addressing scheme of callmanager thanks to mention it

Re: CallManager ip address Overlapping

No, you can and should, if possible, have local DHCP. My point was that you do not want the HQ DHCP and the branch DHCP both handing out the same addresses.

SO to sum up your replies it means that:

The IP Phone cann't have same IP Address even if they aren't in the same location

And the Dhcp should be a local one provided by a local router.

That is correct.
