License CallMgr 5.1 7825 Appliance, 1,000 seats


I am Mohammed Afzal Siddiqui working as a Network Engineer in "STESA" Co. We are going to implement a project which is having 2811& 2821 voice enable routers with VIC2-2FXO,VIC-2FXS,VIC2-2E/M Cisco 2800 IOS SP Services router and 3750 24 10/100 PoE+2SFP Standard Image and We are using Call Manager 5.1 7825 Appliance,1,000 seats that means each Call Manager is containing the 500 Users license so my question is if we are using the other Call Manager for the redundancy, For the other Call Manager the license should be purchased or on the one license we can use both as one for redundancy as one fails.

Hi Mohammed,

You will just need to load the Licenses on the first Callmanager (Node). Have a look at the documentation;

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.




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.

From this doc;

Hope this helps! And best of luck with your install!
