General Description

The Cisco TelePresence Manager Release 1.8 Command-Line Interface Reference Guide describes how to configure, maintain, and monitor the system using CTS-Manager Release 1.8 command-line interface (CLI) commands.

Use this guide with the Cisco TelePresence System Manager Release 1.8 Administrator Guide.

Audience and Scope

This guide is directed to administrators who will use the CTS-Manager Release 1.8 CLI to monitor and maintain the CTS-Manager software.

What's New in this Release

This is the release of the Cisco TelePresence Manager Release 1.8 Command Reference.

Prerequisites

Before starting the tasks in this manual, make sure that the following conditions are met:

Cisco TelePresence Manager (CTS-MAN) is properly installed according to the guidelines in the Cisco TelePresence System Assembly documentation.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Cisco Unified CM) is running and is using version 7.1.5, or later software. To support calls that include Cisco TelePresence TC version 5.0 endpoints, Unified CM version 8.6.1 is required. Download software from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager homepage at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/tsd_products_support_series_home.html

Verify the following:

Cisco Unified CM is running in mixed mode.

The Cisco TelePresence device name in Cisco Unified CM follows the following format: the characters "SEP" followed by the device MAC address. Assign the hostname so that it is resolvable by Domain Name System (DNS).

Each Cisco TelePresence/IP phone combination takes 11 units of the Cisco Unified CM unit license:

—5 units for the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970/7975

—6 units for the Cisco TelePresence unit.

CTS and the Cisco Unified IP Phone are both configured in Cisco Unified CM as a shared line.

The Cisco Unified IP phone must be configured as follows: Alternative TFTP=NO.

For more information about the Cisco Unified IP 7970/7975 telephone, refer to Cisco Unified IP Phones 7900 Series homepage at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/phones/ps379/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html

Make sure the MAC address of the device you are installing is known or available. The MAC address comprises a unique 12-character hexadecimal number that identifies a Cisco Unified IP phone or other hardware device.

Locate the MAC address number on a label on the back of the Cisco TelePresence system primary codec (for example, 000B6A409C405). Cisco Unified CM makes the MAC address a required field for Cisco Unified IP phone device configuration.

When entering the MAC address in Cisco Unified CM fields, do not use spaces or dashes, and do not include any other characters that may precede the MAC address on the label.

Getting Started

Information about and procedures for using the Cisco TelePresence System Release 1.8 CLI is provided in the Chapter 1 "Using Cisco TelePresence Manager CLI Commands":
