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 Communications Managers 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.

Table 78-1 describes the configuration settings that are used for configuring Media Resource Group Lists. For more information about related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section

Media Resource Group List Information

Name

Enter a unique name in this required field for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager 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.

Media Resource Groups for this List

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.

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 that is located 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 that are 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.


Finding a Media Resource Group List

Because you might have several media resource group lists in your network, Cisco Unified Communications Manager lets you locate specific media resource group lists on the basis of specific criteria. Use the following procedure to locate media resource group lists.


Note During your work in a browser session, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your media resource group list search preferences. If you navigate to other menu items and return to this menu item, Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration retains your media resource group list search preferences until you modify your search or close the browser.
