Media Resource Group List Configuration


Media resource management comprises working with media resource groups and media resource group lists. Media resource management provides a mechanism for managing media resources, so that they can be shared by all Cisco CallManagers within a cluster. Media resources provide conferencing, transcoding, media termination, and music on hold services.

A Media Resource Group List provides a prioritized grouping of Media Resource Groups. An application selects the required media resource, such as a Music On Hold server, from among the available media resources according to the priority order defined in a Media Resource Group List.

Use the following topics to configure Media Resource Group Lists:

Field
Description

Media Resource Group List Name

Enter a unique name in this required field for the Cisco CallManager to identify the Media Resource Group List. This name can comprise up to 50 characters. Valid characters include letters, numbers, spaces, dashes, dots (periods), and underscores.

Available Media Resource Groups

This window lists the media resource groups that can be chosen for a Media Resource Group List. The list includes only previously defined media resource groups.

To add a media resource group for this Media Resource Group List, choose one from the list and click the down arrow located between the two panes.

After a media resource group is added, its name moves to the Selected Media Resource Groups pane.

Selected Media Resource Groups

This pane lists the media resource groups that were chosen for a Media Resource Group List. For any Media Resource Group List, you must choose at least one media resource group.

To delete (unselect) a media resource group, choose its name in the list and click the up arrow between the two panes.

Because media resource groups are listed in order of priority (highest to lowest), you must use the up and down arrows located to the right of this pane to reorder the Media Resource Group priority. To do so, choose a Media Resource Group in the list and use the up or down arrow to change its priority.
