Remote Serviceability Overview


Cisco Service Engineers (CSE) use the remote serviceability tools to supplement the management and administration of your Cisco Unified CallManager system. Using these tools, CSEs gather system and debug information when remote troubleshooting or diagnostic help is needed.

Remote Serviceability Tools and Programs

With customer permission, technical support engineers log on to a Cisco Unified CallManager server and get a desktop or shell that allows them to perform any function that could be done from a local logon session.

Remote serviceability supports numerous applications in the multihost and multiplatform Cisco Unified Communications Solutions environment. The tools can process and report on a vast collection of local or remote Cisco Unified CallManager configuration data and system information.

Cisco Unified CallManager supports the following capabilities for remote serviceability:

Cisco Secure Telnet—Allows CSEs to log on to customer remote site to troubleshoot a Cisco Unified CallManager system.

Show Command Line Interface—Allows CSEs to display Cisco Unified CallManager system statistics on a customer network.

SNMP—Enables administrators to remotely manage network performance, find and solve network problems, and plan for network growth.

Cisco Discovery Protocol Support—Enables discovery of Cisco Unified CallManager servers and management of those servers by CiscoWorks2000.

Remote Serviceability Options Checklist

Step 1 

Remotely monitor and maintain Cisco Unified CallManager network servers using a transparent firewall program. Used by CSEs, Cisco Secure Telnet enables a Telnet client inside the Cisco firewall to connect to a Telnet daemon behind the customer firewall.
