Re: Differences between CCM versions

i can tell the major enhancemnts from 4 to 6 are:

the OS is red hut linux instead of MS windows

the database is IBM IDS instead of MS sql

the support of sip trunks

the abilty of subsecriber server to make write to some user facing feature while the bublisher down

the dhcp integrated with cusm instead of being separate service as it was with V4

abilty to integrate with service mobilty

version 4 also able to intergrate but need a saparte server for mobilty service

there is feature added to CFA called CFA override

this is what comes in my mind now

Re: Differences between CCM versions

Hey Abhijit,

Long time buddy! Life is great, hopefully for you as well :)

"CFA Destination Override" is available in CCM 5.X and CCM 6.x. (this is a "one to one relationship between the CFWDALL Originator and Destination) Have a look;

Cisco Unified CallManager provides a service parameter (CFA Destination Override) that allows the administrator to override Call Forward All (CFA) when the target of the CFA calls the initiator of the CFA, so the CFA target can reach the initiator for important calls. In other words, when the user to whom calls are being forwarded (the target) calls the user whose calls are being forwarded (the initiator), the phone of the initiator rings instead of call forwarding back to the target. The override works whether the CFA target phone number is internal or external.

When the CFA Destination Override service parameter is set to False (the default value), no override occurs. Ensure the service parameter is set to True for CFA override to work. See Service Parameters Configuration in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide, Release 5.0(4), for information about configuring service parameters.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Note: CFA override only takes place if the CFA destination matches the calling party and the CFA Destination Override service parameter is set to True. If the service parameter is set to True and the calling party does not match the CFA destination, CFA override does not take place, and the CFA remains in effect.

Re: Differences between CCM versions

Rob,

Hope you are doing good buddy!

Thanks a lot again!!!

Just a few questions ( as usual :-)) -

Call forward override - was it introduced from CCM 5x? Can it be done for only one number or more than one?

One more completely unrelated question here -

What's the differnce between CUE 2.2 & CUE 3.1?

Take care,

Abhijit.
