Adding Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Integration


Adding Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Integration


Cisco Unity Connection can integrate a Cisco Unified Communications Manager phone system integration that has a port group of Cisco Unified CM servers and a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express server. This configuration is typically used to ensure call processing functionality at a branch office when the WAN link is down.

There are, however, the following considerations:

The version of Cisco Unified CM Express and the version of the Cisco Unity Connection must be a supported combination in the SIP Trunk Compatibility Matrix: Cisco Unity Connection, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/products_device_support_tables_list.html.

The Cisco Unified CM phone system integration is typically already created before adding the Cisco Unified CM Express server.

To add a Cisco Unified CM Express server to a Cisco Unified CM phone system integration, do the following procedure.
