licensing with Call Manager 5.0

Hi,

can you help me with licensing IP phones on Call Manager 5.0?

I can take server with CallManager sofware and I don't need any license.

Otherwise, I can take this product:

LIC-CM-DL-10= CallManager Device License - 10 units

I 5.0 version every phone have number of units. So, does it mean, that I can take one 7940G (which have 4 units) and after that I still have 6 units. Next time, if I take one more 7940G, I don't need to take any more licenses. Am I right?

Thanks a lot,

Vlaho

Hi Vlaho,

This shouldn't be too bad. Once you have recieved the License file, here is the method to Upload it to CCM 5.0;

Uploading a License file

Use the following procedure to upload a license file to the Cisco Unified CallManager server with the matching MAC address that is provided when requesting for a license file.The Cisco Unified CallManager server where the license file is loaded takes on the functionality of the license manager.

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

Note Upload the license file only on the first node of Cisco Unified CallManager cluster.

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

Procedure

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

Step 1 Choose System > License > Upload License File.

The License File Upload window displays.

Step 2 The Existing License Files drop-down list box displays the license files that are already uploaded to the server.

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

Note Click View File to view the file content of any existing files.

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

Step 3 To choose a new license file to upload, click Upload License File.

The Upload File pop-up window displays.

Step 4 Browse and choose a license file to upload to the server.

Step 5 Click Upload License File.

After the upload process is complete, the Upload Result file displays.

Step 6 Click Close.

Step 7 In the License File Upload window, the status of the uploaded file displays.

Re: licensing with Call Manager 5.0

Hi Vlaho,

You are right on the money$. In your scenario you would still have 2 DLU's left over after adding the second 7940. Here is some more detailed info;

Device licenses are required for Cisco devices and for third-party devices, with the flexibility to replace third-party devices with Cisco devices. Device licenses are sold in increments of device-license units (DLU's). Device-license units are assigned to each device connected to Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0. Each device is assigned a unit number based on the type and capabilities of the device. Devices with more complex and high-end capabilities are assigned a higher number of units compared to devices with basic capabilities,

Here is the DLU breakdown;

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902G = 1

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G = 2

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G = 3

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912G = 3

Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7920 (no battery) = 4

Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7936 = 3

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G-GE = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G-GE = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G = 5

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G = 5

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985G = 6

Third-party SIP device (basic) = 3 (third-party)

Third-party SIP device (advanced) = 6 (third-party
