Survivable Remote Site Telephony Configuration


A survivable remote site telephony (SRST) reference comprises the gateway that can provide limited Cisco CallManager functionality when all other Cisco CallManager servers for a device are unreachable. Typically assigned to device pools, SRST references determine the gateways where calling devices search when they attempt to complete a call if Cisco CallManager is unavailable. For more detailed information on SRST references, refer to the "Survivable Remote Site Telephony References" section in the Cisco CallManager System Guide.

Use the following topics to add, update, copy, or delete a SRST reference:
