In order to install a Cisco ICM PG to interface with an Avaya Definity G3 Call Center, complete these steps:

  1. Set the CVLAN/MAPD interface for Event Minimization to YES.

  2. Set the CVLAN/MAPD interface Terminal End-Point Identifier (TEI) value to 3.

  3. Specify active associations. The valid values are 2048, 4096, and 8192. You can modify this setting only from the Avaya, and to do so, you must recompile the code for the CVLAN server. When you have set the number of associations on the Avaya, ensure that the PG matches this number.

  4. Configure all Vector Directory Numbers (VDNs) as peripheral targets.

  5. Include the skillnum argument and all monitored skillgroup IDs in the Call Management System (CMS) skillgroups report.

You can encounter numerous problems with reports and routing if you configure the Cisco ICM PG improperly. If you encounter such problems, call the Cisco Applications Technology Group (ATG) Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and request a copy of the document "GED95 - ICR System Manager Guide Supplement".
