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 all Cisco Unified CallManagers within a cluster can share them. Media resources provide conferencing, transcoding, media termination, annunciator, 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 that is defined in a Media Resource Group List.

Use the following topics to configure Media Resource Group Lists:

Description

Media Resource Group List Name

Enter a unique name in this required field for the Cisco Unified 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 that is located between the two panes.

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