Phone exports

Phone exports

This chapter provides information about using the export utility to merge records from multiple Cisco Unified Communications Manager servers onto one Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

Phone record exports

Use the phone record export option to move records from one Cisco Unified Communications Manager server to another. Only export the records that you are interested in moving. You can export the following:
  • phone records
  • user records
  • user device profile records

Optionally, you can edit the CSV file with a text editor. The record format must follow the format that is specified for that file format. For example, records for phones need to follow the phone file format.


Caution


Use extreme care when editing the CSV file. Phones might not work if you insert records that are in the wrong format.


You can choose between two file format options when you export phone records:

  • Specific Details—For phones that have similar configurations
  • All Details—For phones that have different line configurations, such as multiple partitions or calling search spaces

When you are ready to insert the exported records, the order in which the records are inserted is important. You must insert user records first to ensure that devices properly associate with existing users.

  1. Upload the CSV file to Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.
  2. Insert User Records.
  3. Insert Phone Records.
  4. Insert User Device Profile Records.
  5. Check the log files for errors.

    Multiple user phones to export or import

    The exported file name gets suffixed with the timestamp. If a recurring job is scheduled for export phones, the information gets exported with same filename but different timestamps.

    When you import the exported file that has phones with multiple users, all users get exported in the same record.
