Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (VCS)

Using URI dialling over DNS to call endpoints that are not registered to a Cisco VCS

Using URI dialing over DNS to call endpoints that are not registered to a Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server (Cisco VCS)

To use DNS to call endpoints that are not registered to the local Cisco VCS or one of its neighbors, you must:

  1. Configure the Cisco VCS with details of at least one DNS server that it can query. This is done via System > DNS.
  2. Create and configure a DNS zone to look up the URIs to be dialed:
    1. Create a DNS zone (VCS configuration > Zones).
    2. Create a search rule (VCS configuration > Dial plan > Search rules) and configure it with a Mode of either Any Alias, or Alias Pattern Match with a pattern string that matches the URIs to be dialed, and set the rule's Target to the new DNS zone.

For full information on zone configuration and URI dialing from the Cisco VCS using DNS, consult the online help or the Cisco VCS Administrator Guide.
