Installing and Upgrading Cisco Unified CME Software

This chapter explains how to install Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (Cisco Unified CME) software and how to upgrade phone firmware for Cisco Unified IP phones.

Prerequisites for Installing Cisco Unified CME Software

Hardware

  • Your IP network is operational and you can access Cisco web.
  • You have a valid Cisco.com account.
  • You have access to a TFTP server for downloading files.
  • Cisco router and all recommended services hardware for Cisco Unified CME is installed. For installation information, see the “How to Install Cisco Voice Services Hardware” section.

Cisco IOS Software

Information About Cisco Unified CME Software

This section contains a list of the types of files that must be downloaded and installed in the router flash memory to use with Cisco Unified CME. The files listed in this section are included in zipped or tar archives that are downloaded from the Cisco Unified CME software download website at http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/ip-iostsp .

Basic Files

A tar archive contains the basic files you need for Cisco Unified CME. Be sure to download the correct version for the Cisco IOS software release that is running on your router. The basic tar archive generally also contains the phone firmware files that you require, although you may occasionally need to download individual phone firmware files. For information about installing Cisco Unified CME, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.

GUI Files

A tar archive contains the files that you need to use the Cisco Unified CME graphical user interface (GUI), which provides a mouse-driven interface for provisioning phones after basic installation is complete. For installation information, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.


NoteCisco Unified CME GUI files are version-specific; GUI files for one version of Cisco Unified CME are not compatible with any other version of Cisco Unified CME. When downgrading or upgrading Cisco Unified CME, the GUI files for the old version must be overwritten with GUI files that match the Cisco Unified CME version that is being installed.


Phone Firmware Files

Phone firmware files provide code to enable phone displays and operations. These files are specialized for each phone type and protocol, SIP or SCCP, and are periodically revised. You must be sure to have the appropriate phone firmware files for the types of phones, protocol being used, and Cisco Unified CME version at your site.

New IP phones are shipped from Cisco with a default manufacturing SCCP image. When a IP phone downloads its configuration profile, the phone compares the phone firmware mentioned in the configuration profile with the firmware already installed on the phone. If the firmware version differs from the one that is currently loaded on the phone, the phone contacts the TFTP server to upgrade to the new phone firmware and downloads the new firmware before registering with Cisco Unified CME.

Generally, phone firmware files are included in the Cisco Unified CME software archive that you download. They can also be posted on the software download website as individual files or archives.

Early versions of Cisco phone firmware for SCCP and SIP IP phones had filenames as follows:

  • SCCP firmware—P003xxyy.bin
  • SIP firmware—P0S3xxyy.bin

In both bases, x represents the major version, and y represented the minor version. The third character represents the protocol, “0” for SCCP or “S” for SIP.

In later versions, the following conventions are used:

  • SCCP firmware—P003xxyyzzww, where x represents the major version, y represents the major subversion, z represents the maintenance version, and w represents the maintenance subversion.
  • SIP firmware—P0S3-xx-y-zz, where x represents the major version, y represents the minor version, and z represents the subversions.
  • The third character in a filename—Represents the protocol, “0” for SCCP or “S” for SIP.

There are exceptions to the general guidelines. For Cisco ATA, the filename begins with AT. For Cisco Unified IP Phone 7002, 7905, and 7912, the filename can begin with CP.

Signed and unsigned versions of phone firmware are available for certain phone types. Signed binary files support image authentication, which increases system security. We recommend signed versions if your version of Cisco Unified CME supports them. Signed binary files have .sbn file extensions, and unsigned files have .bin file extensions.

For Java-based IP phones, such as the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911, 7941, 7941GE, 7961, 7961GE, 7970, and 7971, the firmware consists of multiple files including JAR and tone files. All of the firmware files for each phone type must be downloaded the TFTP server before they can be downloaded to the phone.

The following example shows a list of phone firmware files that are installed in flash memory for the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911:

tftp-server flash:SCCP11.7-2-1-0S.loads

tftp-server flash:term06.default.loads

tftp-server flash:term11.default.loads

tftp-server flash:cvm11.7-2-0-66.sbn

tftp-server flash:jar11.7-2-0-66.sbn

tftp-server flash:dsp11.1-0-0-73.sbn

tftp-server flash:apps11.1-0-0-72.sbn

tftp-server flash:cnu11.3-0-0-81.sbn

However, you only specify the filename for the image file when configuring Cisco Unified CME. For Java-based IP phones, the following naming conventions are used for image files:

  • SCCP firmware—TERMnn.xx-y-z-ww or SCCPnn.xx-y-zz-ww, where n represents the phone type, x represents the major version, y represents the major subversion, z represents the maintenance version, and w represents the maintenance subversion.

The following example shows how to configure Cisco Unified CME so that the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911 can download the appropriate SCCP firmware from flash memory:

Router(config)# telephony-service

Router(config-telephony)# load 7911 SCCP11.7-2-1-0S

XML Template

The file called xml.template can be copied and modified to allow or restrict specific GUI functions to customer administrators, a class of administrative users with limited capabilities in a Cisco Unified CME system. This file is included in both tar archives (cme-basic-... and cme-gui-...). To install the file, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.

Music-on-Hold (MOH) File

An audio file named music-on-hold.au provides music for external callers on hold when a live feed is not used.This file is included in the tar archive with basic files (cme-basic-...). To install the file, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.

Script Files

Archives containing Tcl script files are listed individually on the Cisco Unified CME software download website. For example, the file named app-h450-transfer.2.0.0.9.zip.tar contains a script that adds H.450 transfer and forwarding support for analog FXS ports.

The Cisco Unified CME Basic Automatic Call Distribution and Auto Attendant Service (B-ACD) requires a number of script files and audio files, which are contained in a tar archive with the name cme-b-acd-.... For a list of files in the archive and for more information about the files, see Cisco CME B-ACD and TCL Call-Handling Applications.

For information about installing TcL script file or an archive, see Installing Cisco Unified CME Software.

Bundled TSP Archive

An archive is available at the Cisco Unified CME software download website that contains several Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI) Telephony Service Provider (TSP) files. These files are needed to set up individual PCs for Cisco Unified IP phone users who wish to make use of Cisco Unified CME-TAPI integration with TAPI-capable PC software. To install the files from the archive, see the installation instructions in the TAPI Developer Guide for Cisco CME/SRST .

File Naming Conventions

Most of the files available at the Cisco Unified CME software download website are archives that must be uncompressed before individual files can be copied to the router. In general, the following naming conventions apply to files on the Cisco Unified CME software download website:

 

cme-basic-...

Basic Cisco Unified CME files, including phone firmware files for a particular Cisco Unified CME version or versions.

cme-gui-...

Files required for the Cisco Unified CME GUI.

cmterm..., P00..., 7970..

Phone firmware files.

Note Not all firmware files to be downloaded to a phone are specified in the load command. For a list of file names to be installed in flash memory, and which file names are to be specified by using the load command, see Cisco Unified CME Supported Firmware, Platforms, Memory, and Voice Products.

cme-b-acd...

How to Install and Upgrade Cisco Unified CME Software

This section contains the following procedures:


NoteCustomers who purchase a router bundle enabled with Cisco Unified CME will have the necessary Cisco Unified CME files installed at time of manufacture.


Installing Cisco Unified CME Software

To install Cisco Unified CME in flash memory, perform the following steps.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. Go to Software Download site.

2. Download archive.

3. Extract files to be downloaded.

4. Use the copy or archive tar command to copy file to flash memory.

5. Use the show flash: command to list files in flash memory.

DETAILED STEPS


Step 1 Go to http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/ip-key .

Step 2 Select the file to download.

Step 3 Download zip file to tftp server.

Step 4 Use the zip program to extract the file to be installed, then:

a. If the file is an individual file, use the copy command to copy the files to router flash:

Router# copy tftp://x.x.x.x/P00307020300.sbn flash:

b. If the file is a tar file, use the archive tar command to extract the files to flash memory.

Router# archive tar /xtract source-url flash:/file-url

Step 5 Verify the installation. Use the show flash: command to list the files installed in in flash memory.

Router# show flash:

31 128996 Sep 19 2005 12:19:02 -07:00 P00307020300.bin

32 461 Sep 19 2005 12:19:02 -07:00 P00307020300.loads

33 681290 Sep 19 2005 12:19:04 -07:00 P00307020300.sb2

34 129400 Sep 19 2005 12:19:04 -07:00 P00307020300.sbn

Step 6 Use the archive tar /create command to create a backup tar file of all the files stored in flash. You can create a tar file that includes all files in a directory or a list of up to four files from a directory.

For example, the following command creates a tar file of the three files listed:

archive tar /create flash:abctestlist.tar flash:orig1 sample1.txt sample2.txt sample3.txt

The following command creates a tar file of all the files in the directory:

archive tar /create flash:abctest1.tar flash:orig1

The following command creates a tar file to backup the flash files to a USB card, on supported platforms:

archive tar /create usbflash1:abctest1.tar flash:orig1

What to Do Next

  • If the Cisco Unified IP phone to be upgraded is not configured in Cisco Unified CME, see How to Configure Phones for a PBX System.
  • If the Cisco Unified IP phone is already configured in Cisco Unified CME and can make and receive calls, you are ready to reboot the Cisco Unified IP phones to download the phone firmware to the phone. See Resetting and Restarting Phones.

SCCP: Converting Phone Firmware to SIP

To upgrade the phone firmware for a particular phone from SCCP to SIP, follow the steps in this task.

If Cisco Unified IP phones presently connected to Cisco Unified CME are using the SCCP protocol to receive and place calls and you now want some or all of these phones to use the SIP protocol, the phone firmware for each phone type must be upgraded from SCCP to the recommended SIP version before the phones can register. If Cisco Unified IP phones to be connected to Cisco Unified CME are brand new, out-of-the-box, the SCCP phone firmware preloaded at the factory must be upgraded to the recommended SIP version before your SIP phones can complete registration.


NoteIf codec values for the dial peers of a connection do not match, the call fails. The default codec for the POTS dial peer for an SCCP phone is G.711 and the default codec for a VoIP dial peer for a SIP phone is G.729. If neither the SCCP phone nor the SIP phone in Cisco Unified CME has been specifically configured to change the codec, calls between the two IP phones on the same router will produce a busy signal caused by the mismatched default codecs. To avoid codec mismatch, specify the codec for IP phones in Cisco Unified CME. For configuration information, see the“Configuring Codecs of Individual Phones for Calls Between Local Phones” section.


Prerequisites

  • Phone firmware for Cisco Unified IP phones to be connected to Cisco Unified CME, including all versions required during an upgrade or downgrade sequence, must be loaded in the flash memory of the TFTP server from which the phones download their configuration profiles. For information about installing firmware files in flash memory, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.
  • Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940Gs and Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960Gs—If these IP phones are already configured in Cisco Unified CME to use the SCCP protocol, the SCCP phone firmware on the phone must be version 5.x. If required, upgrade the SCCP phone firmware to 5.x before upgrading to SIP.

(Optional) Generates ASCII text files for Cisco Unified IP Phones 7905 and 7905G, Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912 and Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912G, Cisco ATA-186, or Cisco ATA-188.

  • Default—System generates binary files to save disk space.

Step 14

end

 

Router(config-register-global)# end

Exits configuration mode and enters privileged EXEC mode.

Examples

The following example shows the configuration steps for converting firmware on an Cisco Unified IP phone already connected in Cisco Unified CME and using the SCCP protocol, from SCCP 5.x to SIP 7.4:

Router(config)# telephony-service

Router(config-telephony)# no create cnf

CNF files deleted

Router(config-telephony)# voice register global

Router(config-register-global)# mode cme

Router(config-register-global)# load 7960 P0S3-07-4-00

Router(config-register-global)# upgrade

Router(config-register-global)# create profile

What to Do Next

After you configure the upgrade command, refer to the following statements to determine which task to perform next.

  • If the Cisco Unified IP phone to be upgraded is already connected in Cisco Unified CME and you removed the SCCP configuration file for the phone but have not configured this phone for SIP in Cisco Unified CME, see How to Configure Phones for a PBX System.
  • If the Cisco Unified IP phones to be upgraded are already configured in Cisco Unified CME, see Resetting and Restarting Phones.

SIP: Converting Phone to SCCP

To upgrade the phone firmware for a particular phone from SIP to SCCP, follow the steps in this task.

If Cisco Unified IP phones presently connected to Cisco Unified CME are using the SIP protocol to receive and place calls and you now want some or all of these phones to use the SCCP protocol, the phone firmware for each phone type must be upgraded from SIP to SCCP before the phones can register.


NoteIf codec values for the dial peers of a connection do not match, the call fails. The default codec for the POTS dial peer for an SCCP phone is G.711 and the default codec for a VoIP dial peer for a SIP phone is G.729. If neither the SCCP phone nor the SIP phone in Cisco Unified CME has been specifically configured to change the codec, calls between the two IP phones on the same router will produce a busy signal caused by the mismatched default codecs. To avoid codec mismatch, specify the codec for SIP and SCCP phones in Cisco Unified CME. For more information, seeHow to Configure Phones for a PBX System.


Prerequisites

  • Phone firmware for Cisco Unified IP phones to be connected to Cisco Unified CME, including all versions required during an upgrade or downgrade sequence, must be loaded in the flash memory of the TFTP server from which the phones will download their configuration profiles. For information about installing firmware files in flash memory, see the “Installing Cisco Unified CME Software” section.
  • Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940Gs and Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960Gs—If these IP phones are already configured in Cisco Unified CME to use the SIP protocol, the SIP phone firmware must be version 7.x. See the “SIP: Upgrading or Downgrading Phone Firmware Between Versions” section.
