About Bulk Administration Tool

From the BAT window, the administrator can add, update, and delete devices, add users, and view online documentation.

Caution Use BAT only during initial installation or during off-peak hours. Otherwise, bulk transactions could affect the Cisco CallManager performance, and call processing may be adversely affected.

BAT provides statistical data on the time it takes to complete a bulk transaction.

Halting BAT

The Stop BAT feature can only be accessed from the server. This feature does not halt the BAT process immediately. It takes some time to stop the transaction.

To Stop BAT, from the Start menu, choose

Start > Programs > Cisco CallManager 3.0 > Bulk Admin Tool > Stop BAT
