Could you please let me know why we don't need to configure the port as a trunk?
Sankar, As you have been anwering all my questions in this forum, let me ask you another question.
I am installing a 4.2 Unity but am missing the Date store and Message store CD's. I have those CD's for 4.0 version. Can I use them to install the Data Store and Message Store and then continue with 4.2 installation? Are those software the same for both version?
And when I am done with 4.2 installation, the only remaning task after integrating the Unity with the CCM is to add users? Am I right? Is there anything else that I have to take care of it
When you use the switchport voice vlan command a special-case 802.1Q trunk automatically is enabled through a CDP information exchange between the switch and the IP Phone. The trunk contains only two VLANs a voice VLAN (tagged VVID) and the data VLAN. The switch port's access VLAN is used as the data VLAN that carries packets to and from a PC that is connected to the phone's PC port.
If an IP Phone is removed and a PC is connected to the same switch port, the PC still will be capable of operating because the data VLAN still will appear as the access VLAN even though the special trunk no longer is enabled
since the trunk is automatically negotiated there is no need to specifically configure it when using cisco ip phones (provided CDP is enabled)
The trunk configuration is required though if you use IP phones from other manufacturers like avaya, nortel etc as they cannot exchange CDP information.
These are the paths to get to each CCX logs through CLI. They may be helpful if you are having issues accessing RTMT or downloading logs through it.
If you want to download them you have to prefix "file get " and you can add one of the options (re...
