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 and Changed Features

New Hardware Support

New and Changed Features

Cisco CP 2.5 supports the following new and changed features:

Bulk Import Enhancements

A newer Version (1_1) of the Bulk Import template is available. The new template supports creation of SIP phones, extensions, and users along with the SCCP counterparts. However, the older version of the template is still supported.

Licensing Feature Support

Using Cisco CP, you can:

Install and enable licenses.

View licenses present on the device.

ModBus

The Modicon Communication Bus (ModBus) feature allows communication between a switch and a device in the network by using the ModBus client software. ModBus is a serial communications protocol for client-server communication between a switch (server) and a device in the network running ModBus client software (client). You can use ModBus to connect a computer to a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

Phone and Extension Templates Enhancements

In addition to Softkeys, Cisco CP now supports Blocked Features, Call Conference, and Codec configurations on Phone Templates. You can now also configure Permissions and Translation Rules and Profiles on Extension Templates, in addition to Call Forward and Pickup Group Number.

Phone Firmware Enhancements

A wizard is now available to configure phone firmware files for both SIP and SCCP phone models available on the Flash or on the PC in .zip or .tar formats. You can download phone firmware files using the Download link. The phone firmware summary page lists configured phone firmware and also allows you to view phone registration status, edit or delete phone firmware configurations, and reset phones to allow configuration of new phone firmware.

Ping and Traceroute

Cisco CP now supports the ping and traceroute commands from the Utilities menu to enable troubleshooting of the network.

Quick Search

Cisco CP now provides option to search for features based on keywords and navigate to the required feature.

Service Ready Engine—Virtualization Support (SRE-V)

Using Cisco CP, you can:

Install SRE-V software on SM-SRE 700 and 900 modules.

Edit console manager and hypervisor IP configurations.

Launch Vsphere client UI from Cisco CP.

Configure users, groups, roles and permissions, and syslog

View license details.

Security Wizard

The security wizard feature enables you to create an Access Control List (ACL) and assign it to the list of interfaces. It also prevents unauthorized users (host) from accessing a specific server (destination) or a specific network (destination), as well as a specific protocol on the application server.

Setup New Device

The Setup New Device wizard allows you to set up a new device and manage it. Before you use Cisco CP to set up a new device, ensure that the computer running Cisco CP is connected to the powered up device over the console port and the device baud is set to its default value.

Single-Number Reach Enhancements

The Single-Number Reach (SNR) enhancement allows you to replace the calling-number with the SNR extension number, in calls forwarded to the remote phone. This feature helps disguise the actual caller number by replacing it with the SNR extension number, making it possible for the receiver of the call to identify whether the call is a direct one or through the SNR number.

SIP Support

Cisco CP now supports:

Creation and modification of SIP extensions and phones for SIP CME, SCCP, and SIP CME through SIP trunks.

Registration of SIP phones.

Option to quickly add new SCCP and SIP phones and extensions and edit values.

Telephony Settings Enhancements

Telephony Settings allows you to specify the endpoint type as SIP or SCCP. Advanced Telephony Settings options are now available from the Unified Communications > Telephony Settings screen.

Ten Devices Per Community

Cisco CP now supports ten devices per community.

Traffic Monitoring

Using Cisco CP, you can:

Install Data Collector and enable traffic monitoring.

View real-time bandwidth usage and throughput.

View traffic volume grouped by protocol and IP address.

Unified Communications Enhancements

Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) and Media Resources are now available as separate modes under Unified Communications > Unified Communications Features. All Unified Communications screens now open with a read-only summary screen. The features available in the left navigation pane depend on the mode you select in the Unified Communications Features page.

WAAS Express Registration

Cisco CP 2.5 provides a wizard to simplify the registration of WAAS Express with the WAAS Central Manager (WCM). Using the wizard you can configure:

WCM IP address

WCM Certificate

Temporary Internet Files—Impact on Launch

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, Cisco 2900, Cisco 3800 and Cisco 3900 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 to "cisco" and the password to "cisco" before you log off the router. If you do not change the credentials as directed, you will not be able to log into 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

15.0(1)M or later

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 log into 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 blue console port on your router to a serial port on your PC using the light blue console cable, included with your router. 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
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 6 Remove the default username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# no username cisco 
 
   

Step 7 To remove the login banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner login
 
   

The login banner warning will no longer appear.

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

yourname(config)# no banner exec
 
   

The exec banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 9 Leave configuration mode, by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# end 
 
   

Step 10 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 are 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 type of 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 that 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 that does not have a redirect URL configured in it.

For more information, see the links on 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. 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.

Screencasts for Cisco CP Features

Instead of online help, screencasts have been provided for the following Cisco CP 2.5 features:

Cellular WAN

Telephony Settings

Extension Templates

Licensing

Module Configuration

Traffic Monitoring

These screencasts are located at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_configuration_professional/scrcst/ccpsc.html

Temporary Internet Files—Impact on Launch

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 Close all existing Internet Explorer windows.

Step 3 Go to Start > Control Panel > Java. The General tab is displayed.

Step 4 In the Temporary Internet Files box, click Delete Files.

Step 5 In the displayed dialog, leave all file types checked, and click OK.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCtn10781

Overlaid extensions do not follow the order you specified.

Symptom   

Case 1—When selecting multiple extensions to be overlaid on a button, the order of extensions is not the same as specified by you.

Case 2—The display name is overwritten when the extension is part of an overlay group.

Conditions   

Case 1—This occurs when you select multiple extensions to be overlaid on a phone button.

Case 2—This occurs when the same extension is overlaid on multiple phones.

Workaround   There is no workaround. If you require a particular order or display name, you can configure it through the CLI.

CSCtn58565

Auto-line command does not work for phones.

Symptom    When editing a phone, the auto-line incoming command does not run.

Conditions   This problem occurs when editing a phone to set Auto Line Selection to Incoming.

Workaround   There is no workaround. Manually configure the auto-line incoming command under an ephone.

CSCto70309

Unified Communications mode is displayed as CUBE when the mode border-element command is not configured.

Symptom    On an ISR-G2, if the mode border-element command is not configured under voice service voip and if telephony service and max-dn commands are configured, Cisco CP displays the Unified Communications feature as CUBE.

Conditions   This problem occurs only on an ISR-G2 if the mode border-element is not configured and if max-dn is configured under the telephony-service command.

Workaround   Select the appropriate mode in the Unified Communications Features screen and deliver the CLI.

CSCtn98336

CSCto67064

Certain date formats not supported in EnergyWise scheduling.

Symptom    When you try to access the EnergyWise feature, the following error is displayed:

An internal error has occurred.

Conditions   This issue is seen when you have entered EnergyWise schedule in a format that is not supported by Cisco CP (involving commas). Cisco CP does not support manual configuration of schedules because these schedules can be read incorrectly or can cause existing schedules to be removed. Cisco CP compatible schedules contain a date format in the form of spaced numbers without the use of commas, for example energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0. Wildcards (*) are allowed in addition to 0-9.

Workaround   If you have a schedule with an incompatible format, convert it into multiple schedules that are compatible with Cisco CP:

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0,1,2,3,4,5,6

should be converted to:

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 1

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 2

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 3

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 4

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 5

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCtn13484

Device setup wizard does not remove the default ACLs on the device.

Symptom    You cannot access device using the newly configured IP address.

Conditions   

Case 1—When you use Setup New Device Wizard for configuring device with factory default configuration with an IP address other than 10.10.10.0 0.0.0.7 subnet.

Case 2—When you use Setup New Device Wizard to configure an IP address that is not permitted from a configured IP access list.

Workaround   

Case 1—For factory default configuration, remove the access class defined in the default configuration using the following commands:

no ip http access-class 23

line vty 0 4

no access-class 23 in

line vty 5 15

no access-class 23 in

Or

Modify the default access list to allow the newly configured IP address:

access-list 23 permit 10.10.10.0 0.0.0.7

Case 2—For non-default configuration, modify or remove the access class to permit the configured IP address.

CSCto96064

Rollback failing when imported phone is SIP.

Symptom    Cisco CP displays an error message that rollback has failed on Bulk Import and the application does not get updated. You can see bulk imported data under phones, users, and extensions.

Conditions   Rollback on Bulk Import with a SIP phone entry is failing as the commands no create profile and create profile issued during rollback fails. As a result, rollback is considered as failed although the configuration on the router created due to Bulk Import has reverted successfully.

Workaround   Manually issue the command no create profile followed by the command create profile under voice register global to update the files on the Flash. Rediscover the device.

CSCto83180

Multiple virtual machines (VMs) installed on SRE-V are not displayed.

Symptom   

Case 1—If you did not select a virtual machine in Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit, Select is displayed.

Case 2—Adding one more virtual machine using Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit removes the previously added virtual machine configuration.

Case 3—Multiple entries are shown in the SRE-V Permissions screen for each user/group.

Conditions   

Case 1—In Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit, when you do not select a virtual machine from the drop-down menu, Select is displayed.

Case 2—When the user/group already has one virtual machine associated with it, adding one more virtual machine using Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit can remove the previously added virtual machine configuration.

Case 3—When a virtual machine, for example VM1 is already added to the user/group, adding one more virtual machine may create multiple entries in the Permissions summary screen upon refreshing the page.

Workaround   

Case 1—There is no workaround. Assume that the default virtual machine Host is associated to the user/group when Select is displayed.

Case 2—To add multiple virtual machines to the user/group, use the CLI.

Case 3—Read each entry as corresponding to one instance of virtual machine associated with the user/group.

CSCto07709

Mode transition from Offline to Online fails.

Symptom    The Online to Offline mode and Offline to Online mode transition fails with the error Persisting Device Object Failure.

Conditions   This problem rarely occurs. If the Online to Offline mode transition fails, close Cisco CP and relaunch the application, it will be in the Offline mode. Transition to Online mode fails with error.

CSCth67558

Unable to discover switching module.

Symptom    Cisco CP fails to discover switching module and reports that the module is being reloaded in the discovery details.

Conditions   When the switching module is configured with login local or AAA new-model configuration or both, the module requires one more level of authentication along with the usual authentication. In this case, you need to provide the username and password twice to get into the module prompt.

Workaround   Remove the login local and AAA new-model configuration so that the extra level of authentication is not required.

CSCtj03097

No backup or restore with LEFS Flash type.

Symptom    Restoring to initial configuration after merge or replace fails.

Conditions   When LEFS type Flash is used, the backup and restore functionality does not work for Configuration Editor. A backup of the running configuration is not created on the Flash and so restoring to initial configuration after merge or replace fails.
