New and Changed Support for Cisco Unity Release 3.1(5)

This section describes the changes that are available with Release 3.1(5). For information about new features and changes in Cisco Unity Release 3.1(4) and earlier, see the appropriate section of the Release Notes for Cisco Unity Release 3.1(5).

Cisco Unity Unified Messaging Is Available on the Cisco ICS 7750

Unified Messaging is supported on the Cisco ICS 7750. The configuration must meet these requirements:

Microsoft Exchange 2000 or Exchange 5.5 must be running on an external server.

Active Directory must be running on an external server.


Note To set up a Cisco Unified Messaging system, Exchange 2000 (or Exchange 5.5) and Active Directory cannot be installed on an SPE in the Cisco ICS 7750.


Cisco Unity Unified Messaging, which is running on a system processing engine (SPE) with 512 MB of RAM, can support up to 24 ports and 500 users.


Note When you are migrating from Cisco Unity Voice Messaging to Unified Messaging, you must reimage the SPE running Cisco Unity and perform a new installation of all the software. You will lose all voice-mail messages as a result of this migration.


Optional Microsoft Service Packs Qualified for Use with Cisco Unity


Note Before installing any qualified optional service pack on the SPE running Cisco Unity, confirm that the service pack is supported for use on the Cisco ICS 7750.


The following Microsoft Service Packs have been qualified for optional use with Cisco Unity:

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Service Pack 3

Windows 2000 Service Pack 3


Note We recommend that you disable the Windows 2000 Updater program that gets installed and enabled by default with Service Pack 3.


The service packs are available from the Software Center on the service packs disc image called CiscoUnity3.1.5ServicePacks-ENU-CD3of3.exe or on the Cisco Unity Service Packs Version 3.1(5) Disc 3.

Permissions Wizard

The Permissions Wizard is a Cisco Unity utility that saves installation time by automatically granting many of the permissions required by the installation and service accounts. By using the wizard, you can set up the rights for the installation and service accounts without using the individual dialog boxes. The Help file for the wizard explains which permissions must still be manually granted after using the wizard.

The Permissions Wizard utility is available on the Cisco Unity Applications Version 3.1(5), Disc 1. To locate the Permissions Wizard file, browse to the Utilities folder on the CD. To install the wizard, double-click Utilities > PermissionsWizard > Setup > setup.exe.

Symantec pcAnywhere Is No Longer Required for Remote Administration

With Cisco Unity 3.1(5) and later, you can use Windows Terminal Services or Symantec pcAnywhere for remote administration. Terminal Services is included with Windows 2000. To use pcAnywhere, you must purchase it from a vendor. The Cisco Unity product no longer ships with the pcAnywhere software.

For information about using Windows Terminal Services with Cisco Unity, refer to the "Windows Terminal Services" section in the Release Notes for Cisco Unity Release 3.1(5).

Additional Counters in Performance Analysis Tool

The Performance Analysis Tool now includes performance counters for monitoring and collecting Cisco Unity performance data on systems running Exchange 2000. Exchange 2000 can be on the Cisco Unity server or on a separate server. When Exchange is on a separate server, warning messages are generated in the Event Viewer for counters that are not tracked for the configuration.

For information on setting up and running the Performance Analysis tool, refer to White Paper: Monitoring Cisco Unity Performance, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/whitpapr/perfmon.htm

Backup and Restore Tools

If your organization does not have a software package for performing scheduled backups, we recommend that you use Backup Exec, which is a data management program from VERITAS Software Corporation. By using Backup Exec, you can efficiently back up the entire Cisco Unity system, including subscriber messages, to a network server.If you want to back up files to a network disk drive, instead of a tape drive, you must use Backup Exec 8.6.

Cisco Unity provides a Disaster Recovery Backup Tool and a Disaster Recovery Restore Tool in the Tools Depot. You can access these tools by using the Tools Depot icon on the Unity server desktop. By using these tools, you can back up Cisco Unity specific data including SQL databases, registry settings, greetings and voice names, the switch file configuration, routing rules, subscriber passwords, and subscriber messages.

The Disaster Recovery Restore Tool can restore the entire Cisco Unity server configuration and all voice messages onto a new or reimaged SPE. You must restore the Cisco Unity data to the same version of Cisco Unity.

The Disaster Recovery Backup Tool is integrated with the Windows scheduler so that you can schedule regular backups at off-business hours.

The disaster recovery tools have some limitations. Before using these tools for regular backups, read the information about backing up and restoring Cisco Unity at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/whitpapr/backupcu.htm

For more information about backing up the Cisco Unity system, refer to the "Maintaining Cisco Unity" chapter in the Cisco Unity Administrator Guide.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

Which Cisco TAC resource you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

The Cisco TAC Web Site allows you to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco services contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to the following URL to register:

http://www.cisco.com/register/

If you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, and you are a Cisco.com registered, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, it is recommended that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses issues that are classified as priority level 1 or priority level 2; these classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer will automatically open a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to the following URL:

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled; for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). In addition, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
