Configuring Service Parameters


Service Parameters for Cisco CallManager (release 3.0 and later) allows you to configure different services on selected servers. You can insert and delete services on a selected server, as well as insert, modify, and delete the service parameters for those services. Refer to the "Service Parameter Restart Conditions" section for information on when a restart of Cisco CallManager is required for certain parameters.


Note The previous statements only apply to the Cisco CallManager database. Services must be installed in the database for them to work. For example, if you add a conference bridge to the database, it may not physically exist. It will only be installed if you chose Media Streaming Off during installation.


The Service Parameters application also provides the following lists:

Configured servers in the system

All configured services on a selected server


Caution Some changes to service parameters may cause system failure. Cisco recommends that you do not make any changes to service parameters unless you fully understand the feature that you are changing, or unless the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) specifies the changes. Read the "Understanding Service Parameters" section on page 10-1 for more detailed service parameter information.
