Cisco call manager


I am an inern recently hired by a firm. i am fairly new to the ip telephony sector. i need some help.

i have been asked to set up a test network however before i proceed with it i want to know certain basic information. I have a cisco mcs 7800 series server which is a LINUX system (a cpu) my collegue here at work told me that we can make this linux box either a call manager 6.x or a call manger 4.x as we have both those devices that can be assembled onto the CPU one at each time. in addition to this server i also hav a cisco mcs 7800 series box which looks like a router in shape and it has ethernet port as well. what i am confused with is which among these devices is the call manager. it looks like the device lookin like the router that has MCS 7800 written on it is the call manager but if that is the case then what is the linux box we have that says cisco MCS 7800 as well?

please help me i m fairly new to this and i m having a very difficult time.

Re: Cisco call manager

you can get a tower or a server for a rack depending on the model

if you look in CCO for the model you have, you will get images

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Server Support Matrix

to know which is CCM, try logging into CCMadmin. you could look at the server model, if it's not for CUCM then the server is not a CUCM.

what is the linux box? you need to find that out, just telling it's a linux box is not enough for someone to tell you.

http into the ip address from the server and you should get a page with some info
