Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager)

Installation of Attendant Console Prevents Cisco CRA 2.x From Starting

Document ID: 23303

Updated: Nov 17, 2007



Sites that have the Cisco Customer Response Application (CRA) 2.x co-located with Cisco CallManager has issues with the start of the Application Engine if the new Attendant Console 1.x is installed on the same server.



There are no specific requirements for this document.

Components Used

The information in this document is based on CRA 2.x.


For more information on document conventions, refer to the Cisco Technical Tips Conventions.


Any application hosted by the CRA server does not work. Cisco IP AutoAttendant, IP-ICD, and Extension Mobility are some of the most common applications that run on the Apps server.

The Engine Status page (http://ipaddress/appadmin) shows the SubSystems as "Unavailable" as shown here.

Figure 1: Application Administration -- Unavailable


This problem only occurs if all of these are true:

  • Your CRA 2.x software is installed on the same server as Cisco CallManager.

  • You have installed the new Attendant Console on the server.

For more information about the Attendant Console, see: Cisco Unified Communications Manager Attendant Console.


Change the RMI Port on the Apps server to use something other than 1099 (for example, 1098). Follow these steps to change the RMI Port:

  1. Log in to the Application Administration web page (http://ipaddress/appadmin). Click Engine, then click Configure.

  2. Change the RMI Port Number to 1098.

  3. Click Status.

  4. Click Stop.

  5. Start the Engine.

  6. Click Start > Progams > Administrative Tools > Services.

  7. Find the World Wide Web Publishing Service and the Restart.
