ccie voice home lab

Hi everyone,

Recently i've started to build my ccie voice lab.

I have a couple of voicegateways, ip phones to simulate a ccie voice topology just like the ccie v3.o blueprint.

2x 2811,1x 2611, 1x 2621 / 4 cisco ip phones and 1 3550 switch.

For the servers ( CUCM/CUPC/UCCX/CUC) i'm using vmware to create virtual machines.

I started to install callmanager under vmware everything works fine but i need to know the part were you statically configure your Ip scheme

wich GW adress do i have to use.

I build up a bridged network so that means i'm using my NIC , i've used ip adresses in the 10.1.1.1 range so all of my routers will be in the same subnet.

My LAN connection has ip adress 10.1.1.1/24 adress, i am able to ping my routers and backwards to my laptop.

But at the end my callmanager installations will not continue because it says that my default gateway adress is unvalid.

Which ip adress for my gatewayadress in callmanager do i have to use?

Do i also need to configure this default gateway adress in my 3550 switch?routers?

I forgot to mention i do not have solid background of R/S.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Hi monasir,

first I don't know the ccie v3.o blueprint.

Can you show it or do you have a link?

My LAN connection has ip adress 10.1.1.1/24 adress, i am able to ping my routers and backwards to my laptop.

are the CUCM etc on the same segmet as the routers?

When yes, check the subnet mask of the IP interface on CUCM.

Maybe you are in a different subnet (class a or b instead of c)

Do i also need to configure this default gateway adress in my 3550 switch?routers?

Normally a switch don't need a gateway (Layer 2), he will work without.

But as part of the network you should give him the default gateway.

Good luck for the ccie!

Regards,

Sven

Hi,

You will need to use ONE of your routers 10.1.1.X addresss as the D/GWAY for the CUCM build

assuming that the CUCM is to use 10.1.1.Y

The 3550 does not NEED a default gwy but you might as well add the same address that the CUCM is

going to use as its D/GWY

Hello, I have been building the same lab at our office lab.  The best site I have found with the most useful information on how to build out a voice lab is at INE.com.  They have the best documentation, and a great user community that is very knowledgeable.   I would suggest you check out their website, they give you all the details needed to satisfy the blueprint and more. 

I don’t work or promote this site but I have found it invaluable in my studies.

Example of the equipment list off the INE.com site:

HQ Site

  • 2811 - VWIC-2MFT-T1, PVDM2-32
  • Catalyst 3560
  • CUCM version - Publisher and Subscriber
  • Unity Connection
  • Contact Center Express
  • Unified Presence
  • One 7961 IP Phone
  • One 7960 IP Phone

BR1 Site

  • 2811 - VWIC-2MFT-T1, HWIC-4ESW, PVDM2-16
  • One 7961 IP Phone
  • One 7960 IP Phone

BR2 Site

  • 2811 - VWIC-2MFT-E1, PVDM2-16, AIM-CUE
  • Catalyst 3550 Inline Power
  • One 7961 IP Phone
  • One 7960 IP Phone

PSTN

  • 3725 - Two VWIC-2MFT-T1s ,One VWIC-2MFT-E1, PVDM-12
  • Your Hardware VPN or Software-based IP Phone

You can't get any better than this for a list of what is needed for you studies, the also have a great topology to follow along with the course ware.  I have purchase a few products off the website and I will be purchase more as I learn on my self-paced track.

Hope this helps you out.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that i finally can reach my GUI callmanager.

As "acampbell"told  i have to use my router ip adres 10.1.1.x to serve as an default GW adress.

So that means everything works fine nowe.

Thanks alot all the replys.

to =>>Sven Ravenstein , you wanted to know what the ccie voice blueprint is.

Click this link but you will need a cisco account to vieuw the information.
