CME license file

Hi experts.

I am currently running CME on 3745 dynamips version. I am not using any basic files for firmwares since i am using CIPC and IP blue. I have read that, CME provides license in packs like, 24 users, 36 users and so on. I havent uploaded any file and still i am able to run 3 phones. Can someone tell me why is this so ? How a license file is uploaded ? plus how to know how many users can my current deployment of CME supports ?

Re: CME license file

Hi John,

This licensing is "honor based" and is not loaded on the router itself

Here is a clip that speaks to this question;

Prerequisites for Configuring Cisco Unified CME

Base Cisco Unified CME feature license and phone user licenses that entitle you to use Cisco Unified CME are **purchased.

From this CME doc;

The 3745 is an "older" model so you won't find much info still floating around for it. The 3745 will support 120 IP Phones.

Hope this helps!
