New and Changed Information

This section contains new information about Cisco CP, and any information about Cisco CP that has changed.

This section contains the following parts:

New Features

New Hardware Support

New Features

Cisco CP 2.0 supports the following new features:

Import and Export Community— The Import and Export Communities feature allows you to save (export) the information about all the communities in Cisco CP to a file on your PC, and then import that information from your PC into Cisco CP.

License Management—The Cisco License Management feature allows you to register and manage feature licenses by securely communicating with the Cisco Product License Registration portal (Cisco licensing portal) to obtain the license, and then allows you to install and deploy the license on a selected device.

User Profile—Earlier you were allowed to access only certain domains or screens. For example, the security administrator was allowed access only to the security screens and the network administrator had access only to the routing screens. With the User Profile feature, you can choose a view for each router. The views are Routing, Security, Voice, Default and so on. You can select read or read-write for each feature displayed in the view.

Template Support—Using this feature, you can generate a template from the running configuration of a device, modify parameters as needed, and apply to the same or another device.

Cellular WAN—This feature supports Third Generation (3G) Wireless High-Speed WAN interface Card (HWIC). The HWIC will function as any other WAN interface on Cisco 1841, 28xx, and 38xx routing platforms. For 881G, 886G, 887G, and 888G, this feature is available in a PCMCIA form. Cisco CP 2.0 provides the following features to support 3G HWIC:

Creating a cellular interface for CDMA (Sprint), CDMA (Verizon) and GSM HWICs

Editing the existing cellular interface

Deleting the cellular interface configurations

Monitoring the cellular interfaces

Module Configuration—The new Internal Service Modules (ISM) allows installation and uninstallation of Cisco Unity Express and AXP applications. Cisco CP 2.0 displays the modules available and also the currently installed application. Cisco CP 2.0 also provides funtionalities to change the application or install a new application on the module.

Module Power Management—This feature allows you to turn power on and off for the new ISM modules.

Flash File Management—ISR-G2 routers have two flashes. In that case, you need to select the flash you want to save in.

Dial Plan—All dial plan related features are enhanced so that apart from basic common use cases, you can also change some of the advanced configuration options for dial plans. These include Incoming Dial Plan, Outgoing Dial Plan, Intersite VoIP, Gateway VoIP, and SRST Rerouting.

Trunk Group—Cisco CP 2.0 allows creation of trunk group by associating multiple trunks to create the group. Cisco CP also provide the functionality to create dial-peer and associate it to trunk group. This reduces the number of CLIs generated for dial-plan feature when dial-plan has to be applied to multiple trunks.

Advanced Global Parameters—The Advanced Global Parameters feature allows you to enable or disable VoIP parameters and to manage Voice Class Codec entries.

Voice Class Codec—The Voice Class Codec feature enables a Cisco device to connect to other VoIP devices without having prior knowledge about the codec that is used in a call-setup.

VoIP Parameters—The VoIP Parameters feature allows you to enable or disable connections between specific types of end points; and to enable or disable supplementary services. Supplementary services are used for call transferring, call forwarding, and message waiting indication (MWI) capabilities across a VoIP network.

CME as SRST—Cisco Unified CME 4.0 provides fallback functionality to IP phones that are registered to Call Manager. When connectivity to the Call Manager is lost or when the server goes down, the phones re-home and register with CME which is configured to provide SRST services. This solution provides access to all the features that CME normally provides while the phones are in fallback mode without any additional licensing cost.

Extension Templates - The Extension Templates feature allows you to apply a standard set of features such as Pickup Group Number, Call Forward Busy Number, and Call Forward No Answer Number to extensions.

Cisco CP Requirements to Run on Microsoft Windows Vista

In order to run Cisco CP under Microsoft Windows Vista, Cisco CP must be installed in Administrator mode. You can do this by following the Microsoft Windows instructions to create an administrative account, and then logging on to the PC using that account name and password before installing Cisco CP. Failure to do this will require you to right-click on the Cisco CP icon or menu item, and choose "Run as administrator" each time you want to run Cisco CP.

Cisco CP Minimum Screen Resolution

Cisco CP requires a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.

Restrictions for Cisco 7204VXR, Cisco 7206VXR, and Cisco 7301 Routers

The following restrictions apply to Cisco CP running on Cisco 7204VXR, Cisco 7206VXR, and Cisco 7301 Routers:

The Cisco CP Express application is not supported. You must use the Cisco IOS CLI to give the router an initial configuration that will enable you to connect to the router using a browser.

WAN configuration is not supported. Cisco CP supports configuration of Ethernet and Fast Ethernet interfaces.

The Cisco CP Reset feature is not available.

No default configuration file is supplied. To run Cisco CP, you must provide a configuration that includes the commands necessary to support operation of Cisco CP.

Cisco CP and Internet Explorer 8

In some systems (Windows XP and Windows Vista), with IE8 installed, Cisco CP may not work as expected. This is due to a reported IE 8 caching issue.

IE8 reinstall or clearing the cache does not help. Any Flash based application like Cisco CP will see this issue.

A workaround today is to create another user account with appropriate privileges and run Cisco CP in that user account.

A fix will be made available in Cisco CP 2.1.

Cisco IOS Enforces One-Time Use of Default Credentials

To address CSCsm25466, Cisco IOS images included with recent shipments of Cisco 800, Cisco 1800, Cisco 2800, and Cisco 3800 routers, enforce the one-time use of the default user name and password provided in the Cisco CP configuration file. If you bypass Cisco CP or Cisco CP Express and use a console or Telnet connection to log into the router, the login and exec banners warn you that you must change the user name "cisco" and password "cisco" before you log off of the router. If you do not change the credentials as directed, you will not be able to log on to the router the next time that you attempt to do so.

The following Cisco IOS releases enforce the one-time use of the default credentials:

12.4(11)T or later

12.4(11)SW, 12.4(11)SW1, 12.4(11)XV, 12.4(11)XJ

12.4(9)T5, 12.4(9)T6

12.3(21), 12.3(22)

Follow the procedure in this section to secure the router by creating a new username and password, to remove the login banner and exec banner warnings, and to save the configuration changes to the router startup configuration.


Note If you login to the router using a Telnet or a console connection but do not complete the steps in this procedure, be aware of the following:

If you do not change the default username and password, and then log off the router, you will not be able to log into the router again without entering the reload command. No additional warning is given before you log off.

If you do not change the default username and password, but do enter the write memory command before ending the session, future logins will be disabled. In this case, you will need to follow the password recovery procedure at the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1831/products_tech_note09186a00801746e6.shtml


To secure the router, remove the banner warnings and save the changes to the router startup config, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Connect the light blue console cable, included with your router, from the blue console port on your router to a serial port on your PC. Refer to your router's hardware installation guide for instructions.

Step 2 Connect the power supply to your router, plug the power supply into a power outlet, and turn on your router. Refer to your router's quick start guide for instructions.

Step 3 Use HyperTerminal or a similar terminal emulation program on your PC, with the terminal emulation settings of 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control, to connect to your router.

Step 4 When prompted, enter the username cisco, and password cisco.

Step 5 Enter configuration mode by entering the following command:

yourname# configure terminal

Step 6 Create a new username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# username username privilege 15 secret 0 password

Replace username and password with the username and password that you want to use.

Step 7 Remove the default username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# no username cisco 

Step 8 To remove the login banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner login

The login banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 9 To remove the exec banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner exec

The exec banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 10 Leave configuration mode, by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# end 

Step 11 Copy the configuration changes to the startup configuration by entering the following command:

yourname# copy running-config startup-config 


When logging into the router in the future, use the username and password that you created in Step 6.

Cisco CP Merge and Replace Configuration Functions Fail Under Some Conditions

The problem described here is caveat CSCsj21989. If you attempt to merge configuration changes made using the Cisco CP Config Editor feature, or replace the running configuration with a configuration from the Config Editor, the router configuration will not be changed if there is a network device with a Network Address Translation (NAT) IP address, or a cache engine in the connection between the PC and the router. If you need to make changes to the router configuration that you would normally make using the Cisco CP Config Editor, use the Cisco IOS CLI instead.

Cisco CP Security Dashboard May Display Threats Unrelated to Your Cisco IOS IPS Installation

Some (or all) of the top threats you obtain using the Cisco CP Security Dashboard may not pertain to your Cisco IOS IPS installation. After you deploy the signatures applicable to the top threats displayed by the Cisco CP Security Dashboard, the dashboard may still display some (or all) top threats with a red icon because applicable signatures could not be found. Those remaining top threats are unrelated to your Cisco IOS IPS installation and not a danger to your router running Cisco IOS software.

Cisco CP May Lose Connection to Network Access Device

This note concerns the Network Admission Control (NAC) feature.

If the PC used to invoke Cisco CP returns a posture state (Healthy, Infected, Checkup, Quarantine, or Unknown) and if the group policy on the ACS server attached to the posture token assigned to the PC has a redirect URL configured, the connection between Cisco CP and the router acting as the Network Access Device (NAD) may be lost. The same problem can occur if an exception list entry attached to a policy with a redirect URL is configured with the IP address or MAC address of the PC.

If you try to reinvoke Cisco CP from this PC, you will not be able to do so because the browser will be redirected to the location specified in the redirect URL.

There are two workarounds for this problem:

Ensure that the PC that you use to invoke Cisco CP attains a posture token which has an associated group policy on the ACS server that is not configured with a redirect URL.

Alternatively, use Cisco CP to create a NAC exception list entry with the IP address or MAC address of the PC you use to invoke Cisco CP. Note that the exception list entry created for the PC should be associated to an exception policy which does not have a redirect URL configured in it.

For more information, see the links in the Cisco CP NAC online help pages.

Popup Blockers Disable Cisco CP Online Help

If you have enabled popup blockers in the browser you use to run Cisco CP, online help will not appear when you click the help button. To prevent this from happening, you must disable the popup blocker when you run Cisco CP. Popup blockers may be enabled in search engine toolbars, or may be standalone applications integrated with the web browser.

Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 blocks popups by default. In order to turn off popup blocking in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.

If you have not installed and enabled third-party pop up blockers, go to Tools >Internet Options > Privacy, and uncheck the Block popups checkbox.

Disable Proxy Settings

Cisco CP will not start when run under Internet Explorer with proxy settings enabled. To correct this problem, choose Internet Options from the Tools menu, click the Connections tab, and then click the LAN settings button. In the LAN Settings window, disable the proxy settings.

Security Alert Dialog May Remain After Cisco CP Launches

When Cisco CP is launched using HTTPS, a security alert dialog box that informs you of possible security problems and asks you if you want to proceed with program launch may appear. This can happen if the router does not have the following global configuration command in the running configuration:

ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 86400 requests 10000

Cisco Configuration Professional Is Already Running Message

If Cisco CP has not been shut down properly, and you try to relaunch it, you may see the following message: "Cisco Configuration Professional is already running. Only one occurrence can run at a time." To correct this problem and relaunch Cisco CP, do the following:


Step 1 Press Ctrl Alt Delete, and click Task Manager.

Step 2 In the Windows Task Manager dialog, click Processes.

Step 3 In the Image Name column, highlight the processes CiscoCP.exe, CiscoCPEngine.exe, IEC2.exe, and SplashScreen.exe.

Step 4 Click End Process.

Step 5 Wait 30 seconds, and then restart Cisco CP.


Technical Support Logs Do Not Appear on Desktop

If the technical support logs folder does not appear on the desktop, there may be installed Java applications preventing this feature from working properly. To check, go to Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs, and scan the list for Java applications. Remove the Java applications that you can, and try again.

Discovery Never Completes

Because of Microsoft Windows Java caching issues, Cisco CP is sometimes unable to complete discovery of a device. To fix this issue, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Choose Application > Exit to shut down Cisco CP.

Step 2 Go to Start > Control Panel > Java. The General tab is displayed.

Step 3 In the Temporary Internet Files box, click Delete Files.

Step 4 In the displayed dialog, leave all file types checked, and click OK.

Step 5 Click OK in the Java control panel to close it.

Step 6 Restart Cisco CP.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCsw23556

Security Applet is not responding error during discovery.

Symptom: Discovery of a device failed with the error Security Applet not responding.

Conditions: This issue happens intermittently.

Workaround: Re-launch the application.

CSCsw31280

CLI Preview dialog box moves to the background.

Symptom: When configuring security features, you click the Add, Edit, or other command buttons in the user interface, the dialog boxes do not open.

Conditions: CLI Preview dialog box is not closed and is present in the background.

Workaround: Resize or move the main Cisco CP window and complete the CLI preview dialog options that are hidden in the background to continue.

CSCsw39659

Enhancement in Cisco CP for CUE post initialization.

Symptom: The data fields for CUE post initialization wizard are not retained on Cisco CP if you use the back button. It is time consuming to enter all the values again.

Conditions: This issue occurs only when any field value is invalid in the CUE post initialization wizard.

Workaround: To avoid this situation, make sure that you enter the correct values so that you do not have to use the back button.

CSCsx05868

Unable to upload CME phone load tar file.

Symptom: In Cisco Configuration Professional, while trying to upload phone load tar file from the Voice > Phone Firmware feature, phone load upload might fail after some upload progress.

Conditions: On device if exec-timeout</CmdBold> is not set under line vty</CmdBold> configurations or if exec-timeout</CmdBold> is set with a smaller timeout value, then phone load upload might fail.

Workaround: On device, under all line vty</CmdBold> configs, set exec-timeout</CmdBold> config with proper timeout value. Example: vty line 0 4 exec-timeout 25 0 exit

Further Problem Description: exec-timeout is used to set the interval that the EXEC command interpreter waits until user input is detected. If no input is detected during this interval, the EXEC facility returns the terminal to the idle state and disconnects the incoming session. A big size phone load tar file might take some time to get uploaded on the device's flash. So to avoid any error during upload, exec-timeout should be set with a value greater than the time taken by upload of big tar file. If exec-timeout is set as 0 0, then vty lines may get blocked if session is not exited/closed properly.

CSCsx57080

Cisco CP launching issue with Internet Explorer 8.

Symptom: Unable to launch Cisco CP.

Conditions: Using Internet Explorer 8 release candidate 1.

Workaround: Downgrade to Internet Explorer 7.

CSCsx72139

Cisco CP discover details should give warning in case of insufficient memory.

Symptom: Voice menu folder is disabled in the Cisco CP GUI.

Conditions: The router running IOS version 12.4(24)T or later has insufficient memory to enable telephony-service.

Workaround: Upgrade the DRAM in the router.

CSCsx75097

Unity express module discovery fails with SSH version >=2.0.

Symptom: Cisco Unity Express module discovery fails with an error message stating that the device is configured with unsupported SSH version. The error messages are shown in the discovery details user interface. Due to this error message, none of the CUE features are available.

Conditions: The device is configured with SSH version higher than or equal to 2.0.

Workaround: Reconfigure the SSH version to lesser than 2.0, or use Telnet to communicate with the device.

CSCsy49785

Service group not working for QoS, SSLVPN, NAC, and access-class.

Symptom: OGACL with service group not working for QoS, SSLVPN, NAC, and access-class.

Conditions: When associating an OGACL with service object group to QoS, SSL VPN, NAC, and access-class, the traffic does not match. This is due to an IOS issue.

Workaround: There is no specific workaround. Use normal ACLs with these features. Once the IOS bug is fixed, this will be fixed in Cisco CP.

CSCsy87964

CPU utilization at 100% when discovering devices.

Symptom: After discovery of 5 devices in a community, some with secure mode, CPU shoots to 100% utilization and does not drop. CiscoCPEngine.exe CPU usage is in the range 83%-95%.

Conditions: This problem occurs if one of the devices in the community, has high security configuration and bandwidth filters for the WAN interface. This problem does not occur in other PC environments.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCsz13428

Configuration error on creating or editing outgoing dial-plan.

Symptom: Dial-plan related configuration fails saying dial-peer tag is already in use. This issue occurs occasionally when voice hunt-group is configured on the router.

Conditions: When hunt-group is configured with pilot CLI, and the pilot number is too huge to be the dial-peer tag.

Further Problem Description: When hunt-group is configured with pilot CLI, the router creates a dial-peer with the pilot number as the dial-peer tag. This dial-peer is not displayed in show run, and Cisco CP does not read these dial-peers (only show run is used to read in dial-peer configurations). However, these dial-peers can be seen in show dial-peer voice summary.

In normal circumstances, the pilot number and the dial-peer tag are large numbers. This is not an issue for Cisco CP as Cisco CP always chooses the smallest tag number available to configure dial-peers and there is never any overlap of tags. However, if the pilot number is too large to be a tag for dial-peer, the router chooses the next available smallest tag number to configure the dial-peer for that hunt group. In such a situation, Cisco CP configuration for dial-plan might cause a problem because the tag that Cisco CP chooses, can overlap with the already configured hunt group related dial-peer, which results in configuration failure.

CSCsz13759

Deleting of extensions fails if configured as Monitor/Shared.

Symptom: Error while deleting multiple extensions together.

Conditions: Create 6 extensions. For example, 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000.

Assign extensions 1000, 2000, 3000 on button 1 of user1; and extensions 4000, 5000, 6000 on button 2 of user1. Assign extension 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000 on button1 of user2. Assign extension 1000 on button1 of user3.

Try to delete all the extensions together.

Workaround: Delete the extensions one by one.

CSCta31020

Whisper intercom does not throw error while editing an invalid entry.

Symptom: No error message while editing invalid Whisper Intercom entry.

Conditions: Whisper intercom dashboard should have invalid entry. Invalid entry should be created via the CLI.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCta60741

Unable to add inspect rule to self zone when editing ZBF.

Symptom: Inspect rule does not get configured correctly for the SSL VPN Passthrough.

Conditions: Configure ZBF and then configure SSL VPN. The inspect rule does not get configured correctly. This is due to an IOS bug.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCta77317

Analog Trunk window not closing on clicking the OK button.

Symptom: Go to Configure > Voice > PSTN Trunks > Analog Trunks. The Edit screen does not close when the OK button is clicked without making any changes.

Conditions: Go to Configure > Voice > PSTN Trunks > Analog Trunks screen. Select an entry, and then click Edit. Without making any changes, click OK. The dialog box does not close.

Workaround: Click Cancel button.

CSCta77454

Adhoc Conference update with SSH port blocked throws unwarranted error.

Symptom: Although Discovery is successful with SSH port blocked, updates on Adhoc Conference fail as interactive commands use SSH protocol. The error message does not indicate that the SSH port is blocked.

Conditions: Modification of Adhoc Conference parameters fail with SSH port blocked and the error message does not indicate the cause.

Workaround: Unblock the SSH port for any transport/communication errors on Adhoc Conference.

Further Problem Description: The Discovery process on Cisco CP is successful with SSH port blocked but features like Adhoc Conference use DSPs which interact using SSH ports. When the SSH port is blocked, all such interactions fail and hence updates on Adhoc Conference profile are not successful.The error message generated does not communicate the cause.

CSCtb05983

Multiple delete fails in offline mode community dashboard.

Symptom: Devices do not disappear from the community table immediately after deleting them.

Conditions: Select multiple devices in the offline mode and press Delete.

Workaround: Delete the devices one by one.

Or

Refresh the community table after all the devices are deleted.

CSCtb81205

Location to download SDM IPS packages needs to be changed.

Symptom: Latest SDM/CP packages for IPS cannot be auto downloaded using Cisco CP.

Conditions: If the user clicks "Download" option from IPS, the latest SDM/CP package will not be downloaded. Only the IOS-CLI package will be downloaded.

Workaround: Manually download the package from CCO and use it in Cisco CP for configuration or import options.

CSCtb58966

Reload of router unsuccessful after deploying license.

Symptom: Reload of device unsuccessful after deploying license or when using 'Reload router' button from License Management > Dashboard window.

Conditions: This is seen with devices with an AP module that requires an input to the following interactive command.

cisco881GW#reload

Do you want to reload the internal AP? [yes/no]:

Workaround: Manually reload the router for the license deployment to take effect and re-discover the router.

CSCtb43408

Dialer persistent config conflicts with Do Not Configure Now in wizard.

Symptom: No dialer persistent config delivered to the router.

Conditions: Both dialer persistent and Do Not Configure Now specified.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCtb33162

Only the last chat script is removed when multiple chat is configured.

Symptom: Only the last chat script gets removed upon clicking the delete button for the specified interface.

Conditions: Configure multiple chat script under Dialer tab in edit mode.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCta71627

Dialer list configuration removed after GSM wizard configuration.

Symptom: Previous configured dialer-list gets removed.

Conditions: There are two GSM interfaces, one is pre configured with dialer-list 2. While using the wizard to configure the second interface, dialer-list 2 get removed.

CSCsx05868

Unable to upload CME phone load tar file.

Symptom: In Cisco Configuration Professional, while trying to upload phone load tar file from the Voice > Phone Firmware feature, the upload may fail after some upload progress.

Conditions: On the device, if <CmdBold>exec-timeout</CmdBold> is not set under <CmdBold>line vty</CmdBold> configurations, or if <CmdBold>exec-timeout</CmdBold> is set with a smaller timeout value, then phone load upload may fail.

Workaround: On the device, under all <CmdBold>line vty</CmdBold> configs, set <CmdBold>exec-timeout</CmdBold> config with proper timeout value. For example:

vty line 0 4

exec-timeout 25 0

exit

Further Problem Description: exec-timeout is used to set the interval that the EXEC command interpreter waits until user input is detected. If no input is detected during that interval, the EXEC facility returns the terminal to the idle state and disconnects the incoming session.

A big size phone load tar file may take some time to get uploaded on the device's flash. So to avoid any error during upload, exec-timeout should be set with a value greater than the time taken to upload a big tar file.

If exec-timeout is set as 0 0, then vty lines may get blocked if the session is not exited or closed properly.

CSCtc30671

Issues with network object ACL groups

Symptom: The ACL network object groups do not get listed under the summary screen after creation.

The ACL object group created under one device gets listed under a different device.

The network object group created under a device cannot be applied under the ACL rule.

Conditions: The ACL network object groups do not get listed under the summary screen after creation. The ACL object group created under one device gets listed under a different device.

This problem is seen when more than one device is discovered.

Workaround: Rediscover the devices under Cisco CP.
