MLPP Domain Configuration


An MLPP domain specifies the collection of devices and resources that are associated with an MLPP subscriber. When an MLPP subscriber that belongs to a particular domain places a precedence call to another MLPP subscriber that belongs to the same domain, MLPP service can preempt the existing call that the called MLPP subscriber is on for a higher precedence call. MLPP service availability does not go across different domains.

Use the following topics to add, update, or delete MLPP domains:

Finding an MLPP Domain

Because you might have several MLPP domains in your network, Cisco CallManager Administration lets you locate specific MLPP domains on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate MLPP domains.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco CallManager Administration retains your MLPP domain search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco CallManager Administration retains your MLPP domain search preferences until you modify your search or close the browser.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose System > MLPP Domain.

The Find and List MLPP Domains window displays. Use the two drop-down list boxes to search for an MLPP Domain.

Step 2 From the first Find MLPP Domains where drop-down list box, choose the following criterion:

is empty

is not empty

Step 3 Specify the appropriate search text, if applicable, and click Find. You can also specify how many items per page to display.


Tip To find all MLPP domains that are registered in the database, click Find without entering any search text.


A list of discovered MLPP domains displays by name.


Note You can delete multiple MLPP domains from the Find and List MLPP Domains window by checking the check boxes next to the appropriate MLPP domains and clicking Delete Selected. You can delete all MLPP domains in the window, other than the Default MLPP domain, by clicking Select All and then clicking Delete Selected.


Step 4 From the list of records, click the MLPP domain name that matches your search criteria.

The MLPP Domain Configuration window displays the MLPP domain that you choose.

Deleting an MLPP Domain

This section describes how to delete an MLPP domain from the Cisco CallManager database.

Before You Begin

You cannot delete an MLPP Domain that any device is using. To find out which devices are using the MLPP domain, from the MLPP Domain Configuration window, choose Dependency Records from the Related Links drop-down list box and click Go. If the dependency records are not enabled for the system, the dependency records summary window displays a message. For more information about dependency records, refer to the "Accessing Dependency Records" section. If you try to delete an MLPP Domain that is in use, Cisco CallManager displays an error message. Before deleting an MLPP Domain that is currently in use, you must perform either or both of the following tasks:

Assign a different MLPP domain to any devices that are using the MLPP domain that you want to delete.

Delete the devices that are using the MLPP domain that you want to delete.

Procedure


Step 1 Find the MLPP domain by using the procedure in the "Finding an MLPP Domain" section.

Step 2 From the list of matching records, choose the MLPP domain that you want to delete.

Step 3 Click Delete.

Step 4 When prompted to confirm the delete operation, click either OK to delete or Cancel to cancel the delete operation.
