Viewing Status of Services

Stopping a Service

Starting a Service

Cisco Unified CallManager Serviceability provides a web-based Control Center tool that is used to view status and to start and stop Cisco Unified CallManager services for a particular server in a cluster.

Starting and stopping a Cisco Unified CallManager service causes all Cisco Unified IP Phones and gateways that are currently registered to that Cisco Unified CallManager service to fail over to their secondary Cisco Unified CallManager service. Devices and phones need to restart only if they cannot register with another Cisco Unified CallManager service. Starting and stopping a Cisco Unified CallManager service causes other installed applications (such as Conference Bridge or Cisco Messaging Interface) that are homed to that Cisco Unified CallManager to start and stop as well.


Note If you are upgrading Cisco Unified CallManager, those services that were already started on your system will start after the upgrade.



Caution Stopping a Cisco Unified CallManager service also stops call processing for all devices that are controlled by that service. When a Cisco Unified CallManager service is stopped, calls from an IP phone to another IP phone stay up; calls in progress from an IP phone to a Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) gateway also stay up, but other types of calls get dropped.


Note You can activate or deactivate services from the Service Activation web pages. To access Service Activation, click the link from the Control Center web page. Refer to Chapter 10 "Service Activation" for more information about Service Activation.
