Installing a Dial Plan on Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Use the following procedure to install a dial plan on a Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.


Note A Dial Plan for a specific country is applicable only to that country and cannot be used in another country.



Step 1 Locate the dial plan that you want to install by accessing the following URL on CCO:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=278719042&flowid=5338&softwareid=282074292&os=Linux&release=3.1.7-PT&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Step 2 If you want to install the dial plan on a publisher server, launch the dial plan installable file on the publisher Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.

If you want to install the dial plan on a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster, launch the dial plan installable file on a subscriber server system.

Step 3 The installable file integrates the dial plan with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. The installable file copies an uninstall package and a ReadMe file for the dial plan in the following path on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system:

C:\Program Files\Cisco\CallManager\IDP

The uninstall package provides a method to uninstall the dial plan. The ReadMe file contains details on the route filter tags and discard digit instructions that are configured in the dial plan.

Step 4 Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services . Choose the CCM service and run this service to load the dial plan on to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.


 

Upgrading a Dial Plan

If you have installed a non-NANP dial plan, you can upgrade the dial plan that is installed on your Cisco Unified Communications Manager system with an upgraded version of the dial plan.


Caution Upgrading a dial plan will fail if you have configured one or more tags as a clause for a route filter in the existing version of the dial plan and the upgrade version does not contain these tags. After you upgrade to the new dial plan, the upgrade will list all such tags. You will need to disassociate these tags from the route filter and run the dial plan upgrade again on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.


Caution Upgrading a dial plan will fail if you have associated one or more DDIs with Route Patterns/Translation Patterns/Route Lists in the existing version of the dial plan and the upgrade version does not contain these DDIs. The dial plan upgrade will list all such DDIs. You will need to disassociate these DDIs from Route Patterns/Translation Patterns/Route Lists and run the dial plan upgrade again on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.

Use the following procedure to upgrade an existing dial plan.


Step 1 Locate the dial plan upgrade version to which you want to upgrade by accessing the following URL on CCO:


Note This is not a hyperlink, you must copy and paste this text in the address field of your browser.


http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=278719042&flowid=5338&softwareid=282074292&os=Linux&release=3.1.7-PT&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Step 2 If you want to install the upgrade on a publisher server, launch the dial plan version installable file on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager publisher server.

If you want to install the upgrade on a Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster, launch the dial plan version installable file on a subscriber server.

Step 3 The installable file integrates the upgrade with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. The installable file copies an uninstall package and a ReadMe file for the upgraded version in the following path on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system:

C:\Program Files\Cisco\CallManager\IDP

Step 4 Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services . Choose the CCM service and run this service to load the upgraded dial plan on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.


 


Note The readme files on the install page contain information specific to all the dial plans being posted on a particular day, and are not associated to any particular dial plan.


Uninstalling a Dial Plan


Caution Before you uninstall a dial plan, ensure that you remove the route patterns, translation patterns, route lists, and route filters that are configured in the dial plan on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.

Use the following procedure to uninstall a dial plan.


Step 1 Run the dial plan uninstall package by using one of the following methods:

    • Run the uninstall package from the following path:

C:\Program Files\Cisco\CallManager\IDP\ on a publisher system or a subscriber server.

    • Choose Start > Programs > <Dial Plan> > Uninstall

where <Dial Plan> represents the name of the dial plan that is installed.

The uninstall package runs and uninstalls the dial plan from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.

Step 2 Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services . Choose the CCM service and run this service to load the dial plan on to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.
