Important Notes

Important Notes

The following sections contain important information that may have been unavailable upon the initial release of documentation for Unified CM and IM and Presence Release 9.0(1).

Cisco Unified Mobility Disclaimer


Caution


The Cisco Mobility solution is verified with only Cisco equipment. This solution may also work with other third-party PSTN gateways and Session Border Controllers (SBCs), but each Cisco Mobility feature is not guaranteed to work as expected.

If you are using this solution with third-party PSTN gateways or SBCs, Cisco technical support may not be able to resolve problems that you encounter.


Configure LDAP Directory

You can add users from your corporate directory to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database by synchronizing the user data to the database. Cisco Unified Communications Manager allows synchronization from the following directories to the database:


Note

  • Microsoft Active Directory 2000
  • Microsoft Active Directory 2003 R1 & R2 (32-bit)

DoCoMo Phones Not Certified

This information applies to CSCua87279.

The Remote Destination Configuration Settings section that appears in the “Cisco Unified Mobility” chapter of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Features and Services Guide states that the Mobile Phone check box does not apply to dual-mode phones that are running SIP, such as DoCoMo N902iL and DoCoMo N906i. This information is correct. However, the DoCoMo phones should not be explicitly mentioned since neither phone has been certified with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

Install Language Prompts for TAPS

If you need to install language prompts other than English, you must install the Locale Installer on all nodes in your Unified CM cluster. After you install the Locale Installer, you must pull the locale specific AAR file that the Locale Installer saves to the Unified CM TFTP directory and install that file in Cisco Unified Contact Center Express.

Procedure
    Step 1   Download the Locale Installer that contains your language from cisco.com.
    Step 2   Install the Locale Installer on each Unified CM cluster node.
    Note   

    For detailed installations on installing locales in Unified CM, see "Software Upgrades" in the Cisco Unified Communication Operating System Administration Guide.

    Step 3   Restart each cluster node.
    Step 4   Login to Cisco Unified Operating System Administration and choose Software Upgrades > TFTP File Management.
    Step 5   Search for the AAR file that the Locale Installer installed in Unified CM’s TFTP directory.
    Step 6   Login to Cisco Unified Operating System CLI.
    Step 7   Use the file get tftp <AAR file name> CLI command to get the file from Unified CM’s TFTP directory.
    Step 8   See the Cisco Unified Contact Center Express product documentation for instructions on how to install and configure the AAR file in Cisco Unified Contact Center Express.

    IPv4-Only Support for Video Streams

    Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 9.0 supports IPv4 only for video streams. Calls between video endpoints and an application must use IPv4 only for both voice and video media streams.

    Before Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 9.0, there was one exception. Cisco Unified Video Advantage, which uses IPv4 exclusively, could be associated with a dual-stack Skinny Client Control Protocol (SCCP) IP phone, forming a composite endpoint which could, in certain circumstances, use IPv6 for voice and, at the same time, IPv4 for video media streams.

    In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 9.0 and later, this exception is no longer supported, and video will be disabled whenever a dual-stack IP phone configured in dual-stack or IPv6-only mode is associated with Cisco Unified Video Advantage. IP phones associated with Cisco Unified Video Advantage must be reconfigured to use IPv4 only for voice, if they are to continue to support video.

    Jabber Certificate Warnings with IM and Presence Service

    This information applies to CSCum63324.

    When using the Cisco Jabber client, certificate warning messages can be encountered if the IP address is configured as the IM and Presence Service node name. To prevent Cisco Jabber from generating certificate warning messages, the FQDN should be used as the node name.

    LBM Hub Node TCP Port 9004 Must Only Be Accessible by Trusted Nodes

    Unified CM 9.0(1) introduces a new architecture for propagating Locations Bandwidth information end-to-end in a multi cluster environment. In the initial release, this feature is not secured so it is critical that only trusted hosts are able to access TCP Port 9004 on any node configured as a Locations Bandwidth Manager (LBM) Hub Node. Future versions of Unified CM will implement a solution to verify the authenticity of this signaling. This requirement does not apply for isolated clusters with no LBM Hub Node Groups configured.

    Locale Installer Locale File for Belgium

    This information applies to CSCua01779.

    Because the primary language spoken in Belgium is Dutch, you can download the Dutch (Netherlands) locale file, for example, cm-locale-nl_NL- 8.5.1.2100-1.cop.sgn (Cisco Unified Communications Locale Installer 8.5.1.21000-1 Dutch (Netherlands)). Secondary languages commonly spoken in Belgium are French and German.

    Localization Not Supported for Some Unified CM Components

    Localization is not supported for the following Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Release 9.0(1) components:

    • Cisco Unified Serviceability

    • Cisco Unified Reporting Tool

    • Cisco Disaster Recovery System

    • Cisco Dialed Number Analyzer


    Note


    Cisco Unified CM Administration is localized for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean; Cisco Unified CM Administration > Help only supports Japanese.


    RD Numbers Cannot Be Provisioned on Two Different Clusters

    The same RD cannot be provisioned on two different clusters. If a call is made across two clusters, the dtmf signal, and some other signals, will stop forwarding after hitting the first provisioned RD cluster. The second cluster will not receive it.

    Unified CM Assigns a Nonsecure Conference Bridge When the Conference is Initiated by a Nonsecure Phone

    If a nonsecure phone that is assigned to a media resource group list initiates a conference and a nonsecure conference bridge is available in the media resource group list, Cisco Unified Communications Manager allocates the nonsecure conference bridge even if a secure conference bridge with a higher priority ranking is also available in the media resource group list.

    Upgrade Restores Configure Automatic Database Purge Parameter Default

    Following an upgrade, the Configure Automatic Database Purge > MAX DATABASE AGE parameter will be changed to one of the following:

    • If the MAX DATABASE AGE in the old version is between 1 and 60, it will be configured to 60 in the new version.
    • If the MAX DATABASE AGE in the old version is between 60 and 180, it will be configured to the same age in the new version.

    • If the MAX DATABASE AGE in the old version is more than 180, it will be configured to 180 in the new version.
