This document explains why real-time or historical agent data is
unavailable in a Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC) Enterprise environment. This
document also provides a possible solution.
Note: This issue can occur in a new installation or upgrade of Cisco
Intelligent Contact Management (ICM) 6.0.
Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:
Cisco ICM configuration
Note: CRS 3.x and earlier has compatability issues with Real Time Reporting
where it only runs with Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.3.1. If you
encounter the error message You are using JRE 1.4.x.x. Please
exit, uninstall JRE 1.4.x.x and install JRE 1.3.1 when you
launch Real Time Reporting, it can be because the PC from which you launch the
Real Time Reporting client has a Java plug-in other than 1.3.1 installed.
Uninstall the existing version of JRE from the Control Panel and reinstall JRE
version 1.3.1 in order to resolve this issue.

After you install or upgrade to ICM 6.x, you are unable to find
real-time agent statistics and historical agent data.
Here are the possible causes of this problem:
When you run the Admin Workstation (AW) Setup program, you need to
configure the Real-time Distributor properties. Admin site name is one of the
properties you must configure for the Real-time Distributor (see arrow A in
Figure 1 – Configure the Admin Site Name for the Real-time
You also need to configure the Distributor site name in the Peripheral
Gateway (PG) Explorer.
This problem can occur if you enter different names for the Admin site
and the Distributor site. In ICM versions earlier than 6.x, you do not need to
check for case consistency between the Admin site name and the Distributor site
name. However, in ICM 6.x and later, these names are case sensitive.
This problem can also occur when you do not enable agent reporting in
the PG Explorer.
Complete these steps in order to solve this problem:
Choose Start > Programs > Cisco ICM Admin Workstation
> Configuration Manager.
The Configuration Manager window appears.
Choose Configure ICM > Peripherals > Peripheral >
The PG Explorer window appears:

Click the Agent Distribution
Verify the name that appears in the Distributor site name field in
the Currently Selected Site section (see arrow B in Figure
2). Ensure that the name is identical to the Admin site name you entered
for the Real-time Distributor in the Real-time Distributor Properties dialog
box during the AW setup (see arrow A in Figure
If the Distributor site name is different, or uses a different
case, you must modify the name to match the Admin site name.
Note: If you need to change the Distributor site name, you must cycle
the rtdist process of the Distributor. The
rtdist process enables the Router to send real-time data.
Check the Enable agent reporting check

After you complete this procedure, the relevant real-time and
historical agent data populates IPCC.
