To use the PUT, you are required to enter your Cisco Software Application Support Plus Upgrades (SASU) contract number and request the CD/CD set. If you do not have a SASU contract, you must purchase the upgrade from Cisco Sales.

For more information about supported Cisco Unified CM upgrades, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Software Compatibility Matrix at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/voicesw/ps6790/ps5748/ps378/prod_brochure0900aecd80 62a4f9.html

Cisco UXL Web Service Added to Service Activation Window

In most Cisco Unified CM releases, the TabSync client in Cisco IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer uses AXL for end-user queries to the Cisco Unified CM database. In Cisco Unified CM 5.1(3e), the TabSync client uses the Cisco UXL Web Service for queries to the Cisco Unified CM database, which ensures that Cisco IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer users have access only to end-user data that pertains to them.

In the Service Activation window in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability (Tools > Service Activation), you can activate the Cisco UXL Web Service, which performs the following functions:

Conducts authentication checks by verifying the end user name and password when an end user logs in to Cisco IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer.

Conducts a user authorization check by only allowing the user that is currently logged in to Cisco IP Phone Address Book Synchronizer to perform functions such as listing, retrieving, updating, removing, and adding contacts.


Caution You cannot upgrade to a release that does not include this service. Please see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Software Compatibility Matrix
at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/compat/ccmcompmatr.html

Recovery Disk for Cisco Unified CM Release 5.1(3e)

CSCsg06024 PMR 84055 Tomcat server down because of database engine DDR block.

CSCec27300 CiscoTSP restricts the number of characters in a username to a maximum of 30.

Important Information About Update or Delete Transaction by Using Custom File in BAT

Do not use the insert or export transaction file or files that are created with bat.xlt for the custom file-based transactions in BAT. Instead, you must create a custom file with the details of the records that need to be updated or deleted. In this custom file, you can enter values for name, description, and user ID based on the search option available on the corresponding custom file-based Find/List page. Make sure that you do not include a header in this file. For example, for Update Phones > Custom File, if you select Device Name as the search option, the custom file should contain only device names without the header.

Cisco Unified CM Does Not Support Recovery of Administration or Security Passwords

Cisco Unified CM does not support recovery of administration or security passwords. If you lose these passwords, you must reset the passwords, as described in the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide.

The Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration Guide calls the section, "Recovering the Administrator or Security Passwords," instead of "Resetting the Administrator or Security Passwords." Access the "Recovering the Administrator or Security Passwords" section to reset the passwords.

Clarification for Call Park Configuration

Consider the following information when you configure Call Park:

Because Call Park numbers cannot overlap between Cisco Unified CM servers, ensure that each server has its own unique number range.

Call Park numbers may have an associated partition that restricts access to the Call Park numbers and prevents retrieval of parked calls. If partitions are used to restrict access to Call Park numbers, you must define a unique call park number or range of call park extension numbers for each partition on each Cisco Unified CM in the cluster.

When the end user invokes Call Park, Unified CM attempts to find an available Call Park number from a Call Park partition that is currently accessible via the calling search space for the party that invoked Call Park.

Viewing Privileges for Roles in Cisco Unified CM Administration

The Role Configuration window in Cisco Unified CM Administration displays the privileges for each standard role. To access the Role Configuration window, find the role by choosing User Management > Role; when the Find and List Roles window displays, click Find. Click the link for the standard role that you want to view. After the Role Configuration window displays, you can view the privileges in the Resource Access Information pane.

TAPS Name Change in Bulk Administration Tool

Documentation refers to the Tool for Auto-Registered Phone Support (TAPS) as Cisco Unified CallManager Auto-Register Phone Tool in the Online Help for Bulk Administration. All references to 'Cisco Unified CallManager Auto-Register Phone Tool' in the Bulk Administration Tool Online Help should be read as 'Tool for Auto-Registered Phone Support (TAPS)'. This complies with the Bulk Administration user interface.

For More Information

For information on configuring additional features in BAT, refer to the BAT documentation for Cisco Unified CM.

CSCsk86705 ForwardAll CFA Removed from CCMUser Window

The options for the Show Call Forwarding enterprise parameter specified only True and False. The need existed for a third option, Show Only Forward All.

Unified CM Release 5.1(3d) resolves this caveat.

CSCsl71487 Cimserver Memory Leak Fix

RTMT and perfmon counters show that the cimserver process consumes increasing amounts of memory on IBM MCS servers. Over a period of several weeks, cimserver gradually consumes the majority of available virtual memory and eventually causes the server to hang.

Unified CM 5.1(3d) includes the fix for this memory leak.

Do Not Log On to the Console During Busy Hours

Because of the CPU resources that are consumed, Cisco does not recommend that you log on to the console during busy hours. If you log on during busy hours, Code Yellow or Code Red alarms may be raised, depending on the tasks that are being performed and the CPU that is utilized to perform those tasks. Cisco recommends that console usage (remote or local) be limited to maintenance or upgrades during Maintenance windows.

(Cisco Unified CallManager Recovery Disk for 5.1(3) 5.1(3) 01-OCT-2007 209682432)

New CLI Command - utils dbreplication clusterreset

This release of Unified CM includes a new CLI command, utils dbreplication clusterreset .

This command can be used to debug database replication, but should only be used if utils dbreplication reset all has previously been tried and has failed to restart replication on the cluster. This command will tear down and rebuild replication for the entire cluster. After using this command, each sub needs to be rebooted. Also, once the subs have been rebooted, you must go to the pub and issue the CLI command utils dbreplication reset all.

Voice Mailbox Mask Interacts with Diversion Header

When a call gets redirected from a DN to a voice-mail server/service that is integrated with Unified CM by using a SIP trunk, the voice mailbox mask on the voice-mail profile for the phone modifies the diverting number in the SIP diversion header. This expected behavior occurs because the diversion header gets used by the Unified CM server to choose a mailbox.

CSCso45910 - The Server Will Not Boot to the New Partition.

Prior to this release, after an upgrade, the server would not boot to the new partition.

This release of Unified CM resolves this caveat.

Cisco TSP Vista Support

Cisco TSP supports the Microsoft Vista operating system.

Ensure that the first-time installation of the CiscoTSP and Unified CM TSP Wave driver on a computer that is running the Vista operating system gets performed as a fresh install.

CiscoTSP Limitations on Windows Vista Platform

Always perform the first-time installation of the CiscoTSP and Unified CM TSP Wave Driver on a Vista machine as a fresh install.

Turn off the Windows firewall if a secure connection to the Unified CM gets used.

Turn off the Windows firewall if the Unified CM TSP Wave Driver gets used for inbound audio streaming.

Disable all other devices in the "Sound, video and game controllers" group if the Unified CM TSP Wave Driver gets used for audio streaming.

CSCsm47603 BIOS Upgrade Required

The E6400 processor that IBM includes in their 7825I3 servers does not get supported by the BIOS that is bundled with Cisco Unified CM Release 5.1(3). Because of this, Unified CM Release 5.1(3) downrevs the BIOS to an unsupported version during installation or upgrade. Unfortunately, during startup, the system simply warns the user by displaying a warning message. The customer will not see this message if he is not constantly looking at the terminal. The system allows startup to continue in the unsupported state. The implications of running in this state remain unknown.

This release of Cisco Unified CM resolves this problem.

Australia Summer Time

This year, Australia Summer Time ends on April 6, 2008.

Summer Time begins again at 2:00AM October 5, 2008 (the first Sunday in October) and ends at 2:00AM on April 5, 2009 (the first Sunday in April).

This release of Cisco Unified CM includes the specific dates for the Australia Summer Time changes for this year.

Venezuela Implements New Time Zone

Venezuela implemented a new time zone that is one-half hour behind the previous time zone (GMT-4).

Cisco Unified CM Release 5.1(3a) incorporates this new time zone into Cisco products that are used in Venezuela.

Clarification for Call Park Configuration

Consider the following information when you configure Call Park:

Because Call Park numbers cannot overlap between Unified CM servers, ensure that each Cisco Unified CM server has its own unique number range.

Call Park numbers may have an associated partition that restricts access to the Call Park numbers and prevents retrieval of parked calls. If partitions are used to restrict access to Call Park numbers, you must define a unique call park number or range of call park extension numbers for each partition on each Cisco Unified CM in the cluster.

When the end user invokes Call Park, Cisco Unified CM attempts to find an available Call Park number from a Call Park partition that is currently accessible via the calling search space for the party that invoked Call Park.

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Table Can Fill Up Quickly

Do not install Cisco Unified CM in a large Class A or Class B subnet that contains a large number of devices because the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) table can fill up quickly (maximum 1024 entries, by default). When the ARP table gets full, Cisco Unified CM can have difficulty talking to endpoints and cannot add more phones.

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Does Not Support Browser Buttons

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration does not support the buttons in your browser. Do not use the browser buttons (for example, the Back button) when you perform configuration tasks.

Internet Explorer 7 Certificate Support

This release supports Internet Explorer 7 web browser for Cisco Unified CallManager Administration. Internet Explorer 7 adds security features that change the way the browser handles Cisco certificates for website access. Because Cisco provides a self-signed certificate for the Cisco Unified CM server, Internet Explorer 7 flags the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration website as untrusted and provides a certificate error, even when the trust store contains the server certificate.


Note Internet Explorer 7, which is a Windows Vista feature, also runs on Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1).


Be sure to import the Cisco Unified CM certificate to Internet Explorer 7 to secure access without having to reload the certificate every time that you restart the browser. If you continue to a website that has a certificate warning and the certificate is not in the trust store, Internet Explorer 7 retains the certificate for the current session only.

After you download the server certificate, Internet Explorer 7 continues to display certificate errors for the website. You can ignore the security warnings when the Trusted Root Certificate Authority trust store for the browser contains the imported certificate.

The following procedure describes how to import the Cisco Unified CM certificate to the root certificate trust store in Internet Explorer 7.

Ensure JRE is present to provide all the Java-related browser support for IE6 or IE7.

Procedure


Step 1 Enter the hostname, localhost, or IP address for the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration website. The browser displays a Certificate Error: Navigation Blocked window to indicate that this website is untrusted.

Step 2 To access the server, click Continue to this website (not recommended). The Cisco Unified CallManager Administration displays, and the browser displays the address bar and a Certificate Error status in red.

Step 3 To import the server certificate, click the Certificate Error status box to display the status report. Click the View certificates link in the report.

Step 4 Verify the certificate details. The Certification Path tab displays, "This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store."

Step 5 Select the General tab in the Certificate window and click Install Certificate. The Certificate Import Wizard launches.

Step 6 To start the Wizard, click Next. The Certificate Store window displays.

Step 7 Verify that the Automatic option, which allows the wizard to select the certificate store for this certificate type, is selected and click Next.

Step 8 Verify the setting and click Finish. A security warning displays for the import operation.

Step 9 To install the certificate, click Yes. The Import Wizard displays "The import was successful."

Step 10 Click OK. The next time that you click the View certificates link, the Certification Path tab in the Certificate window displays "This certificate is OK."

Step 11 To verify that the trust store contains the imported certificate, click Tools > Internet Options in the Internet Explorer toolbar and select the Content tab. Click Certificates and select the Trusted Root Certifications Authorities tab. Scroll to find the imported certificate in the list.

Step 12 After importing the certificate, the browser continues to display the address bar and a Certificate Error status in red. The status persists even if you reenter the hostname, localhost, or IP address or refresh or relaunch the browser.


Internet Explorer 7 Support

The following applications now support Internet Explorer 7:

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration

Cisco Unified CallManager Bulk Administration Tool (BAT)

Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability

Disaster Recovery System (DRS)

Cisco Unified CallManager Operating System (OS)

Cisco Unified CallManager CDR Analysis and Reporting (CAR)

New Cisco Unified Reporting Application

The new Cisco Unified Reporting web application, which is accessed at the Cisco Unified CM console, generates reports for troubleshooting or inspecting cluster data.

This convenient tool provides a snapshot of cluster data without requiring multiple steps to get the data. The tool design facilitates gathering data from existing sources, comparing the data, and reporting irregularities.

A report combines data from one or more sources on one or more servers into one output view. For example, you can view a report that shows the hosts file for all servers in the cluster.

The application gathers information from the publisher server and each subscriber server. A report provides data for all active cluster nodes that are accessible at the time that the report is generated.

Some reports run checks to identify conditions that could impact cluster operations. Status messages indicate the outcome of every data check that is run.

Only authorized users can access the Cisco Unified Reporting application. By default, this includes administrator users in the Standard Unified CM Super Users group. As an authorized user, you can view reports, generate new reports, or download reports at the graphical user interface (GUI).

Cisco Unified Reporting includes the following capabilities:

A user interface for generating, archiving, and downloading reports

Notification message if a report will take excessive time to generate or consume excessive CPU

Refer to the Cisco Unified Reporting Administration Guide for more information.

Updating the Hostname or IP Address in the Server Configuration Window

Before you change the hostname or IP address of a server in the Server Configuration window in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, consider the following information:

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration does not prevent you from updating the Host Name/IP Address field under any circumstances.

When you attempt to change the hostname or IP address in the Server Configuration window, the following message displays after you save the configuration: "Changing the host name/IP Address of the server may cause problems with Cisco Unified CallManager. Are you sure that you want to continue?" Before you click OK, make sure that you understand the implications of updating this field; for example, updating this setting incorrectly may cause Cisco Unified CallManager to become inoperable; that is, the database may not work, you may not be able to access Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, and so on. In addition, updating this field without performing other related tasks may cause problems for Cisco Unified CallManager.

For additional information on changing IP address/hostnames for Cisco Unified CM, refer to Changing the IP Address and Host Name for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 5.x and 6.x Servers.

SIP Network/IP Address Field Required for SIP Fallback to SRST Gateway

Although Cisco Unified CallManager Administration does not list the SIP Network/IP Address field as a required setting, you must configure the SIP Network/IP Address field and the SIP Port field in the SRST Reference Configuration window for a SIP device to fall back to the SRST-enabled gateway. For more information on these fields and SRST references, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide.

RTMT on the Microsoft Vista Platform

When you install RTMT on the Microsoft Vista platform, the system displays the User Account Control popup window that is shown in Figure 1 due to a limitation in the InstallAnywhere software. This one-time popup displays only when you are installing RTMT. Select Allow to continue.

Figure 1 User Account Control Popup Window

CSCsj22450 Login Failure Does Not Send a Message to the Syslog

This resolved caveats adds the following alarm catalog and two alarms:

LoginAlarmCatalog:

AuthenticationFailed - When a web application login attempt fails

AuthenticationSucceeded - When a web application login attempt succeeds

The alarm events get logged in to the local and remote SYSLOG.


Note No corresponding alerts exist for these two authentication alarms.


CSCsh58895 Unified CM Cannot Send System or Platform Agent Logs to Remote Syslog Server

Unified CM can now send syslog messages to a remote server.

You can configure two new enterprise parameters from Cisco Unified CallManager Administration > System > Enterprise Parameters:

Remote Syslog Server Name - You can enter the name or IP address of the remote Syslog server that you want to use to accept Syslog messages. If the server name is not specified, Cisco Unified Serviceability does not send the Syslog messages.


Note The Unified CM server does not accept Syslog messages from another server.


Remote Syslog Server Name:

Maximum length: 255

Allowed values: Provide a valid remote syslog server name that comprises (A-Z,a-z,0-9,.,-)

Syslog Severity For Remote Syslog messages - You can select the desired Syslog messages severity for remote syslog server. The system sends all the syslog messages with selected or higher severity levels to the remote syslog. If the remote server name is not specified, Cisco Unified Serviceability does not send the Syslog messages.

RTMT Requirement When Unified CM is Upgraded

If you are running the Cisco Unified Communications Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT) client and monitoring performance counters during an upgrade, the performance counters will not update during and after the upgrade. To continue monitoring performance counters accurately after the upgrade completes, you must either reload the RTMT profile or restart the RTMT client.

iLO Flashing Causes the Login Window to Disappear After Installation or Upgrade

As part of the installation or upgrade processes, the iLO firmware in the servers gets flashed. During the flashing, messages display for the convenience of the user. Because of this, after the installation or upgrade completes, the default login window gets masked by the messages.

To see the login window, click Enter.

Serviceability Session Timeout Not Graceful

When a session has been idle for more than 30 minutes, the Cisco Unified Serviceability user interface allows you to make changes before indicating that the session has timed out and redirecting you to the login window. After you log in again, you may need to repeat those changes. This behavior occurs in the Alarm, Trace, Service Activation, Control Center, and SNMP windows. The only workaround requires you to log out by using the Logout button before making any changes in the user interface if you know that the session has been idle for more than 30 minutes.

Disaster Recovery Manual Backup Window

Disaster Recovery System backs up CAR/CDR data automatically when you check the CCM checkbox on the Manual Backup window. The Manual Backup window no longer contains a CAR/CDR checkbox.

New Service Parameters Added to Extension Mobility

Extension Mobility includes four new service parameters. You can find these new parameters at System > Service Parameters > Cisco Extension Mobility > Advanced.

Validate IP Address

Trusted List of IPs

Allow Proxy

Extension Mobility Cache Size

Validate IP Address

This parameter specifies whether validation of the IP address of the source that is requesting login or logout occurs.

The parameter can take values of true or false.

If the parameter specifies true, the IP address from which an EM log in or log out request is made gets validated to ensure that it is a trusted IP address.

Validation Procedure

Validation first gets performed against the cache for the device to be logged in or logged out.

If the requesting source IP address is not found in cache, the IP address gets checked against the list of trusted IP addresses and hostnames that are specified in the Trusted List of IPs service parameter.

If the requesting source IP address is not present in the Trusted List of IPs service parameter, it gets checked against the list of devices that are registered to Unified CM.

Validation Effect

If the IP address of the requesting source is found in the cache or in the list of trusted IP addresses or is a registered device, the device can perform login or logout.

If the IP address is not found, the log in or log out attempt gets blocked.

If the parameter specifies false, the EM log in or log out request does not get validated.


Note Validation of IP addresses may increase the time that is equired to log in or log out a device, but it offers an additional layer of security in the effort to prevent unauthorized log in or log out attempts, especially when used in conjunction with log ins from separate trusted proxy servers for remote devices.

For more information, refer to the design guidelines in the extension mobility documentation.


Trusted List of IPs

This parameter displays as a text box (maximum length - 1024 characters). You can enter strings of trusted IP addresses or hostnames, separated by semicolons, in the text box. IP address ranges and regular expressions do not get supported.

Allow Proxy

Allow Proxy can take values of true or false.

If the parameter specifies true, the system allows EM log in and log out operations using a web proxy.

If the parameter specifies false, EM log in and log out requests that come from behind a proxy get rejected.


Note The setting that you select takes effect only if the Validate IP Address parameter specifies true.


Extension Mobility Cache Size

This parameter displays as a text box in which the administrator can configure the size of the device cache that is maintained by extension mobility. The minimum value for this field specifies 1000, and the maximum specifies 20000. The default specifies 10000.


Note The value you enter takes effect only if the Validate IP Address parameter specifies true.


New Cisco IP Phone Expansion Modules Supported

Cisco Unified CallManager now includes support for the following Cisco Unified IP Phone expansion modules:

7915 12-Button Line Expansion Module

7915 24-Button Line Expansion Module

7916 12-Button Line Expansion Module

7916 24-Button Line Expansion Module

Installation, Upgrade, and Disaster Recovery

Installation Overview

For release 5.1(3), the Cisco Unified CM installation process includes the following new features:

Process allows you to set the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size

Enhanced validation ensures that a subsequent node can communicate with the first node

MTU Size Parameter

During installation, you can configure the MTU size parameter. The MTU size represents the largest packet, in bytes, that the host will transmit on the network. If you are unsure of the MTU setting for your network, use the default value, 1500 bytes.


Note You can also set the MTU size after installation by using the CLI command, set network mtu.


Enhanced Connectivity Validation

To ensure successful installation of a subsequent node, the system validates that the subsequent node can connect with the first node.

If connectivity validation fails, the installation process stops, and the system prompts you to reenter the network configuration information. After you update the network configuration information, you can continue with the installation.

Prior to connectivity validation, from the Network Connectivity Test Configuration window, you can choose whether you want the installation process to continue uninterrupted after a successful validation test or stop and display a successful validation message.

To pause the installation after the system successfully validates network connectivity, choose Yes.

To continue the installation without a pause, choose No.

Enhanced Documentation

For Release 5.1(3), enhancements to the installation and upgrade documentation cover additional pre- and post-installation tasks, as well as specific steps for adding a new subscriber node to an existing cluster.

The Release 5.1(3) documentation set also includes a new document that describes the procedures for replacing a cluster or a single server in an existing cluster, Replacing a Cluster or Single Server for Cisco Unified CallManager Release 5.1(3).

Disaster Recovery System

DRS now backs up CAR/CDR data automatically. You do not need to select the CAR/CDR feature to back up this data.

Where to Find More Information

For more information, refer to the following documents:

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration

This section contains information on the following topic:

General Administration Enhancements

Service and Enterprise Parameter Changes

General Administration Enhancements

The following requirements apply to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration:

Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 6.0 or 7.0

Netscape 7.1


Note This release does not support Microsoft IE 5.5 or Netscape 7.0.


Service and Enterprise Parameter Changes

The following parameter changes occur in Unified CM 5.1(3x).

SIP TCP Unused Connection Timer (new service parameter)—This parameter, which supports the Cisco CallManager service, specifies the time, that is, the interval, in which Cisco Unified CallManager determines whether the TCP connection is still in use. When the timer expires, Cisco Unified CallManager checks for traffic in the preceding block of time, as specified by the value that you configure for the parameter; for example, 20 minutes. If no traffic occurred during that time, Cisco Unified CallManager closes the TCP connection. If traffic occurred, the TCP connection remains open until the timer expires again, at which point Cisco Unified CallManager checks for traffic again.

For example, if the value for the parameter equals 20 minutes and the timer expires at 3:00, Cisco Unified CallManager examines the time from 2:40 to 3:00. If traffic occurred during that time, the connection remains open until the next examination at 3:20. If no traffic occurred from 3:00 to 3:20, Cisco Unified CallManager closes the TCP connection at or shortly after 3:20. If traffic occurred from 3:00 to 3:20, the TCP connection remains open until Cisco Unified CallManager checks for traffic again at 3:40, and so on.

After you update this parameter, you must restart the Cisco CallManager service for the changes to take effect.

For the default, maximum, and minimum values for the parameter, access the parameter in Cisco Unified CallManager Administration and either click the name of the service parameter or click the ? button in the Service Parameter Configuration window.


Note If you have other devices in the path of a call flow that includes a SIP timeout, like a firewall, you need to adjust those timeouts to be slightly longer than two times the value of this parameter.


Auto select DN on any Partition (new enterprise parameter)—This parameter specifies whether the Directory Number Configuration window automatically selects the first matching DN to populate the window. The default specifies False, which means that the DN/Partition name gets used to populate the DN window. If the parameter is set to True and the DN is changed, the first entry that matches the DN gets used to populate the window.

Report Socket Connection Timeout and Report Socket Read Timeout (two new enterprise parameters) - These two parameters support the Cisco Unified Reporting application, as follows:

The Report Socket Connect Timeout parameter specifies the maximum number of seconds that the application uses when it attempts to connect to another server. Increase this time if you experience connection issues on a slow network. The range for this required field specifies 5 to 120 seconds, and the default value specifies 10 seconds.

The Report Socket Read Timeout parameter specifies the maximum number of seconds that the application uses when it reads data from another server. Increase this time if you experience connection issues on a slow network. For this required field, the range specifies 5 to 600 seconds, and the default value specifies 60 seconds.

Refer to New Cisco Unified Reporting Application in theon page 5 for a brief description of the application.

Cisco Unified CallManager Applications and Features

The following sections describe the Cisco Unified CallManager 5.1 applications enhancements:

CSCsi80592 MTP Resources Do Not Support Multicast Music on Hold

Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant

CSCsi80592 MTP Resources Do Not Support Multicast Music on Hold

The following restriction exists for multicast music on hold (MOH) when a media termination point (MTP) is invoked. When an MTP resource gets invoked in a call leg at a site that is using multicast MOH, the caller receives silence instead of music on hold. To avoid this scenario, configure unicast MOH or Tone on Hold instead of multicast MOH

Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant

In Unified CM 5.1(3), the assistant no longer obtains the assistant console application via a URL that the administrator provides; instead, a plug-in from Cisco Unified CallManager Administration gets downloaded and installed on the assistant PC.

The assistant console application installation supports Netscape 7.1 (or later) and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (or later). You can install the application on a PC that runs Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista [new support for 5.1(3)].

A previous 5.x version of the assistant console application works with Cisco Unified CallManager 5.1(3), but if you decide to install the 5.1(3) plug-in, you must uninstall the previous 5.X version of the assistant console application before you install the plug-in.

Previous versions of the assistant console application do not work with Windows Vista. If the PC runs Windows Vista, install the plug-in.

After you upgrade from Cisco Unified CallManager Release 4.x to 5.1(3x), you must install the assistant console plug-in. Before you install the plug-in, uninstall the 4.x version of the assistant console application.

Uninstalling the Assistant Console Application

To uninstall previous versions of the assistant console application, choose Start> Programs > Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant > Uninstall Assistant Console.

To uninstall the new plugin-based assistant console application, go to the Control Panel and remove it.


Tip The assistant console application requires that JRE1.4.2_05 exist in C:\Program Files\Cisco\Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant.


To install the assistant console application, perform the following procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 From the PC where you want to install the assistant console application, browse into Cisco Unified CallManager Administration and choose Application > Plugins.

Step 2 For the Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant plug-in, click the Download link; save the executable to a location that you will remember.

Step 3 Locate the executable and run it.


Tip If you install the application on a Windows Vista PC, a security window may display. Allow the installation to continue.


The installation wizard displays.

Step 4 In the Welcome window, click Next.

Step 5 Accept the license agreement and click Next.

Step 6 Choose the location where you want the application to install. After you choose the location for the installation, click Next.


Tip By default, the application installs in C:\Program Files\Cisco\ Unified CallManager Assistant Console.


Step 7 To install the application, click Next.

The installation begins.

Step 8 After the installation completes, click Finish.



Tip To launch the assistant console, click the desktop icon or choose Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant > Assistant Console in the Start...Programs menu.

Before the assistant logs in to the console, give the assistant the port number and the IP address or hostname of the Unified CM server where the Cisco IP Manager Assistant service is activated. The first time that the assistant logs in to the console, the assistant must enter the information in the Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant Server Port and the Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant Server Hostname or IP Address fields.

Before the assistant logs in to the console, give the assistant the user name and password that is required to log in to the console.

The Advanced tab in the Cisco Unified CallManager Assistant Settings window allows you to enable trace for the assistant console.


Cisco and Third-Party APIs

These following sections describe new features and changes that are pertinent to Release 5.1(3) of the Cisco Unified CM APIs and the Cisco extensions to third-party APIs.

Windows Vista Support

Route Patterns, Automated Alternative Routing, and Applications

AXL Programming

Windows Vista Support

Unified CM Release 5.1(3) adds support for Cisco TAPI and Cisco JTAPI on the Windows Vista platform.

For information about the JVM versions that Cisco JTAPI supports on Windows Vista and other platforms, see Table 2.

Route Patterns, Automated Alternative Routing, and Applications

Unified CM only applies Automated Alternative Routing (AAR) to the endpoints that it controls. Network congestion and bandwidth restrictions can cause tail-end hop-off (TEHO) calls to fail if you configure Unified CM to use AAR. To provide failover support for route patterns, you must configure the route lists to take advantage of their built-in redundancy.

Application developers who use the Unified CM TAPI and JTAPI APIs should be aware of this behavior.

AXL Programming

The following table summarizes the AXL schema changes in Release 5.1(3):

Table 1 AXL Schema Changes

The change in the callingSearchSpaceName tag to String50 type affects APIs that inherit from Device. The change also affects add, get, and update APIs of CTIRoutePoint, DevicePool, DeviceProfile, DirectedCallPark, GatewayEndPoint, H323Gateway, H323Phone, H323Trunk, HuntPilot, Line, MGCPEndPoint, PilotPoint, RemoteDestinationProfile, SIPTrunk, VoiceMailPilot, and VoiceMailPort.

Change to axl.xsd for the ringSetting Element

The definition of the ringSetting element changes in Release 5.1(3) to make this element optional:

<xsd:element name="ringSetting" type="axl:XRingSetting" default="Ring" nillable="false" 
minOccurs="0"/> 
 
   

Prior to this release, ringSetting comprised a required element:

<xsd:element name="ringSetting" type="axl:XRingSetting" default="Ring" nillable="false"/> 

Documentation Supplement

WSDL AXL and AXIS

By default, AXIS2 creates all the methods and requests in the same stub file, which might be as large as 35 Mb. AXIS1.4 creates individual files for every method, which yields individual files smaller than 2 Mb.

AXIS2 includes the option "-d xmlbeans" to change the binding option, which creates separate files for all methods as with AXIS1.4. For more information, see this URL:

http://ws.apache.org/axis2/1_1_1/userguide-creatingclients.html.

Changes in the Initial Version of Release 5.1

The following sections describe the API changes that were introduced in the initial version of Unified CM Release 5.1.

AXL APIs

The following list provides AXL API calls that are new in Unified CM Release 5.1:

addSIPRealm

updateSIPRealm

getSIPRealm

removeSIPRealm

These APIs add and update credentials (passwordreserve) in siprealm.

New AXL Service Parameter

Cisco Unified CallManager Administration 5.1 release adds a new service parameter, Send Valid Namespace in AXL Response, under the Cisco Database Layer Monitor service. This parameter determines the namespace that gets sent in the AXL response from Unified CM.

When this parameter specifies True, Unified CM sends the valid namespace (that is, http://www.cisco.com/AXL/API/1.0) in the AXL response, so the namespace matches the AXL schema specification.

If the parameter specifies False, Unified CM sends an invalid namespace (that is, http://www.cisco.com/AXL/1.0) in the AXL response, which does not match the AXL schema specification.

The default service parameter value specifies False to maintain backward compatibility with the AXL response in the Cisco Unified CM 5.0 release. Cisco recommends that you set this parameter to True, so Unified CM sends the valid namespace.

AXL Serviceability Programming

No changes to the AXL Serviceability APIs exist for Release 5.1(3).

Summary of Changes in Previous Releases

For a summary of changes in previous releases, see the following table:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/devguide/6_0_1/Svc_API_table.html

Documentation Errata

This section corrects some errors in the Cisco Unified CallManager Developers Guide for Release 5.0.

An error exists in the example that shows the PerfmonAddCounter request with two counters and a single-reference accessor. The SessionHandle element contains an incorrect value for the type attribute. The corrected example follows.

Extension Mobility API

No changes exist in the Extension Mobility API in Release 5.1(3).

Web Dialer

The following change to Web Dialer occurred for Unified CM Release 5.1(3):

getProfileSoap: the list of devices that getProfileSoap returns changed. The list no longer includes unsupported devices.

Documentation Errata

The Cisco Unified CallManager Release 5.1(1) New and Changed Information Guide states that the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration directory search page uses the makeCall interface. However, beginning with Release 5.0, the directory search page actually uses the makeCallProxy interface.

Changes in Release 5.1

The initial 5.1 release of Cisco Unified CallManager  included the following change to Cisco Unified CallManager Web Dialer:

Web Dialer and Redirector now require HTTPS.

Developers should format Redirector and web dialer requests to use HTTPS. Unified CM requires the secured protocol to prevent unauthorized applications from reading user data.

For More Information

AXL Programming, Cisco Unified CallManager New and Changed Information Guide, Release 5.1(1)

Web Dialer API Programming, Cisco Unified CallManager New and Changed Information Guide, Release 5.1(1)

Cisco Unified JTAPI Developers Guide

No changes to Cisco Unified JTAPI exists in Release 5.1(3). As stated previously, beginning with this release, Cisco Unified JTAPI supports the Windows Vista platform.

The following sections supplement the Cisco Unified CallManager JTAPI Developers Guide.

Hunt List Targets

The Cisco JTAPI implementation does not support hunt lists. Applications cannot observe an Address, CiscoAddress, or CiscoRouteAddress that is a member of a HuntList LineGroup.

Translation Pattern Support

If a calling party transformation mask is configured for a translation pattern that is applied to a JTAPI application-controlled Address, the application may see extra connections that get created and disconnected when both the calling and called party are observed. A Connection gets created for a transformed calling party instead of the actual calling party, and CiscoCall.getCurrentCallingParty() would return the transformed calling party, when only the called party is observed. In general, JTAPI might not be able to create the appropriate Connection in the Call, and might not be able to provide correct information for currentCalling, currentCalled, calling, called, and lastRedirecting parties.

For example, consider a translation pattern X that is configured with a calling party transformation mask Y and called party transformation mask B. If A calls X, the call goes to B. This scenario follows:

If the application is observing only B, JTAPI creates a Connection for Y and B, and CiscoCall.getCurrentCallingParty() would return Address Y.

If the application is observing both A and B, a Connection for A and B gets created, a Connection for Y gets temporarily created and dropped, and CiscoCall.getCurrentCallingParty() would return Address Y.

Other inconsistencies could exist in the calling information if further features get performed on a basic call. Cisco recommends that you not configure a calling party transformation mast for a translation pattern that might get applied to JTAPI application-controlled addresses.

Documentation Errata

Be aware of the following issues in the Cisco Unified CallManager JTAPI Developers Guide:

The reasons fields that are listed for CiscoCallEv should instead appear under CiscoFeatureReason.

The names of several constants, such as FRAMESIZE_TWENTY_MILLISECOND_PACKET for the CiscoG711MediaCapability interface mislead. These constants do not specify a frame rate (frames-per-packet) value. Instead, they specify the packet rate (frame size). The affected interfaces comprise CiscoG711MediaCapability, CiscoG723MediaCapability, and CiscoGSMMediaCapability. This clarification applies to all the FRAMESIZE_XXX_PACKET constants.

Cisco Unified TAPI Developers Guide

No changes occurred to Cisco Unified TAPI in Release 5.1(3). As stated previously, beginning with this release, Cisco Unified TAPI supports the Windows Vista platform.

The following sections supplement the Cisco Unified CallManager TAPI Developers Guide.

Hunt List Targets

CTI does not support controlled devices as part of Hunt List members. This could result in erroneous behavior for Cisco Unified TAPI applications.

Translation Pattern

TSP does not support the Translation Pattern because it may cause a dangling call in a conference scenario. The application needs to clear the call to remove this dangling call or simply close and reopen the line.

Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability

This section contains the following subsections:

Adding RTMT Performance Counters in Bulk

RTMT Database Summary with Database Replication Information

Start Counter(s) Logging in the Menu Bar

RTMT Trace and Log Central Disk IO and CPU Throttling

Trace Compression Support

RTMT Critical Services

Preconfigured Alerts

RTMT Services, Servlets and Service Parameters

Supported Operating Systems

Adding RTMT Performance Counters in Bulk

On the RTMT Perfmon Monitoring pane, in table format only (not in chart format), you can now select multiple counters and multiple instances of counters and add them all with a single click. Prior to this enhancement, you could add them only one at a time.

For more information, see Documentation Updates.

RTMT Database Summary with Database Replication Information

The RTMT database summary predefined monitoring object now includes the following information:

Replicates created

Replication status

Start Counter(s) Logging in the Menu Bar

Prior to this release, the RTMT Performance Monitoring window included a Start Counter(s) Logging menu item for each tab, but not at the RTMT top menu bar level. Now, this menu item consistently remains available.

RTMT Trace and Log Central Disk IO and CPU Throttling

RTMT now supports the throttling of critical Trace and Log Central operations and jobs, whether they are running on demand, scheduled, or automatic. The throttling effect slows down the operations when IO utilization is in high demand for call processing, so call processing can take precedence.

For more information, see Documentation Updates.

Trace Compression Support

This feature enables the ROS (Recoverable Outstream) library to support the compressed output of tracefiles. The files get compressed as they are being generated. The following benefits of tracefile compression apply:

Reduces the capacity that is required to store tracefiles

Reduces the disk head movement, which results in significantly improved call load. The CPU virtually never gets blocked due to tracefile demands.

For more information, see Documentation Updates.

RTMT Critical Services

Cisco Unified CallManager Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT) provides new states for the critical services that display in RTMT. The Critical Services monitoring category (choose Monitor > Server > Critical Services or click the Server button and Critical Services icon) provides the name of the critical service, the status (whether the service is starting, up, stopping, down, stopped by the administrator, not activated, or in an unknown state), and the elapsed time during which the services have existed in a particular state for a particular Unified CM node. For a specific description of each state, review the following information:

starting (new state)—The service currently experiences starting, as indicated in the Critical Services pane and in Control Center in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability.

up—The service currently runs as indicated in the Critical Services pane and in Control Center in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability.

stopping (new state)—The service currently remains in stop state, as indicated in the Critical Services pane and in Control Center in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability.

down—The service stopped running unexpectedly; that is, you did not perform a task that stopped the service. The Critical Services pane indicates that the service is down.


Tip The CriticalServiceDown alert gets generated when the service status equals down (not for other states).


stopped by Admin (new state)—You performed a task that intentionally stopped the service; for example, the service stopped because you backed up or restored Cisco Unified CallManager, performed an upgrade, stopped the service in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability or the Command Line Interface (CLI), and so on. The Critical Services pane indicates the status.

not activated—The service does not currently exist in activated state as indicated in the Critical Services pane and in Service Activation in Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability.

unknown state—The system cannot determine the state of the service, as indicated in the Critical Services pane.

Preconfigured Alerts

The Preconfigured Alerts chapter of the Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability Guide contains the following new preconfigured alerts:

ServerDown: This alert gets triggered whenever the active AMC cannot talk to a remote host.

HardwareFailure: This alert gets triggered whenever a corresponding HardwareFailure alarm/event occurs.

SDLLinkOutOfService: This alert gets triggered whenever a corresponding "SDLLinkOOS alarm/event occurs.

SyslogStringMatchFound

SyslogSeverityMatchFound

DBReplicationFailure: This alert gets triggered whenever the corresponding perfmon counter "replication status" has values other than 0 (init) and 2 (success).

SystemVersionMismatched: This alert gets triggered whenever a mismatch exists in system version.

RTMT Services, Servlets and Service Parameters

The list of RTMT Services, Servlets, and Service Parameters now includes RisDC.

Supported Operating Systems

The list of supported operating systems now includes Windows Vista.

Understanding the Fixed-in Version and the Integrated-in Fields in the Online Defect Record

When you open the online record for a defect, you may see data in the "First Fixed-in Version" or "Integrated-in" fields. The information that displays in these fields identifies the list of Cisco Unified CallManager interim versions in which the defect was fixed. These interim versions then get integrated into Cisco Unified CallManager releases.

Some more clearly defined versions include identification for Engineering Specials (ES) or Service Releases (SR); for example 03.3(04)ES29 and 04.0(02a)SR1; however, the version information that displays for the Cisco Unified CallManager maintenance releases may not be as clearly identified.

The following examples show how you can decode the maintenance release interim version information. These examples show you the format of the interim version along with the corresponding Cisco Unified CallManager release that includes that interim version. You can use these examples as guidance to better understand the presentation of information in these fields.

003.003(003.144) = Cisco CallManager Release 3.3(4)

005.000(000.123) = Cisco Unified CallManager Release 5.0(1)

005.000(001.008) = Cisco Unified CallManager Release 5.0(2)

005.001(002.201) = Cisco Unified CallManager Release 5.1(3)
