Media Resource Group List Configuration Settings

In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the Media Resources > Media Resource Group List menu path to configure media resource group lists.

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.

Tips About Configuring Media Resource Group Lists

Be aware that you cannot delete a media resource group that is assigned to a Media Resource Group List unless you first remove the media resource group from the Media Resource Group List(s) to which it is assigned or you delete the Media Resource Group List.

Tips About Deleting Media Resource Group Lists

Be aware that you cannot delete a Media Resource Group List that is assigned to a device pool(s) or to a device(s). You must first modify the device pool(s) or device(s) to which a Media Resource Group List is assigned.

Using the GUI

For instructions on how to use the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Graphical User Interface (GUI) to find, delete, configure, or copy records, see the "Navigating the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Application" section on page 1-13 and its subsections, which explain how to use the GUI and detail the functions of the buttons and icons.

Field
Description
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.
