Understanding Enterprise Parameters


Enterprise parameters provide default settings that apply to all devices and services in the same cluster. (A cluster is a set of Cisco CallManagers that share the same database.) When you install a new Cisco CallManager, it uses the enterprise parameters to set the initial values of its device defaults. For more information on device defaults, see the "Setting Device Defaults" section on page 15-1.

Enterprise parameters include the following default settings:

Firmware loads for devices such as phones, gateways, and Media Termination Points

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) parameters

URLs for web-based applications such as directory services for the Cisco IP Phone 7960

System Version

MessageDirectoryNumber

You cannot add or delete enterprise parameters, but you can use the following procedure to update existing enterprise parameters:
