Extension Mobility Cross Cluster Template


Cisco Unified Communications Manager Bulk Administration (BAT) gives the administrator a fast and efficient way to insert, update, or delete Extension Mobility Cross Cluster (EMCC) in batches, rather than performing individual updates through Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

The following topics provide information about how to use BAT to work with EMCC templates and other IP telephony devices:

Using EMCC Templates

Use BAT EMCC templates to define the common EMCC attributes to add a group of new EMCC. Prior to creating the template, make sure EMCC settings have already been configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. You cannot create new settings in BAT.

Deleting EMCC Templates

You can delete BAT templates when you no longer require them. Use this procedure to delete a template.

Field Descriptions for a BAT EMCC Template

Table 66-1 provides descriptions of all possible fields that display when you are adding an EMCC template.

Some fields display the values that were configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

In the BAT user interface, field names that have an asterisk require an entry. Treat fields that do not have an asterisk as optional.

For related procedures, see the "Related Topics" section.
