Cisco Unified CME Commands: G


Revised: March 19, 2010

This chapter contains commands to configure and maintain Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (formally known as Cisco Unified CallManager Express). The commands are presented in alphabetical order. Some commands required for configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (Cisco Unified CME) may be found in other Cisco IOS references. Use the reference master index or search online to find these commands.

group phone

To add a phone, including a TAPI-based client application, or a softphone on a PC to a VRF group for Cisco Unified CME, use the group phone command in ephone or ephone-template configuration mode. To remove the group phone configuration, use the no form of this command.

group phone group-tag [tapi group-tag]

no group phone

Syntax Description

group-tag

Unique identifier of VRF group. Range: 1 to 5.

tapi

(Optional) Add TAPI-based client on the phone being configured to a VRF group.


Command Default

Group phone is not configured.

Command Modes

Ephone configuration (config-ephone)
Ephone-template configuration (config-ephone-template)

12.4(22)T

Cisco Unified CME 7.0(1)

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

This command adds a softphone on a PC, an IP phone, or a TAPI client on an IP phone to a VRF group.

VRF groups for users and phones in Cisco Unified CME are created by using the group command in telephony-service configuration mode.

All SCCP and SIP phones connected to Cisco Unified CME must register through the global voice VRF.

TAPI-based client on an IP phone and softphones on a PC must register in Cisco Unified CME through a data VRF.

Before you can use this command, the MAC address for the IP phone being configured must be configured by using the mac-address command in ephone configuration mode.

If you use an ephone template to apply a command to an ephone and you also use the same command in ephone configuration mode, the value that you set in ephone configuration mode has priority over the ephone-template configuration.

Examples

The following example shows four phones in three VRF groups, two on data VRFs and one on a global voice VRF.

group (telephony-service)

Creates a VRF group for phones and users in Cisco Unified CME.

mac-address

Associates the MAC address of a Cisco IP phone with an ephone configuration.


group (lpcor custom)

To add a logical partitioning class of restriction (LPCOR) resource group to the custom resource list, use the group command in LPCOR custom configuration mode. To remove a resource group, use the no form of this command.

group number lpcor-group

no group number

Syntax Description

number

Group number of the LPCOR entry. Range: 1 to 64.

lpcor-group

Name of a LPCOR resource group.


Command Default

LPCOR resource group is not defined.

15.0(1)XA

Cisco Unified CME 8.0

This command was introduced.

15.1(1)T

Cisco Unified CME 8.0

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)T.


Usage Guidelines

Use this command to define all of the LPCOR resource groups that you are provisioning on the Cisco Unified CME router. You must logically partition the resources of the Cisco Unified CME router (trunks and phones) into different LPCOR resource groups so that you can apply the required call restrictions to each group.

Examples

The following example shows a LPCOR configuration with six resource groups:

voice lpcor custom
 group 1 sccp_phone_local
 group 2 sip_phone_local
 group 3 analog_phone_local
 group 4 sip_remote
 group 5 sccp_remote
 group 6 isdn_local

group (telephony-service)

group group-tag [vrf vrfname]

no group

Syntax Description

group-tag

Unique identifier for VRF group being configured. Range 1 to 5

vrf vrfname

12.4(22)T

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

By default, VRF groups are associated with a global voice VRF unless you use the vrf vrfname keyword and argument combination to specifiy otherwise.

If you configure this command, the ip source-address, url and cnf-file location commands in telephony-service configuration mode are automatically converted into group 1 with a default global VRF for nvgen during system upgrade.

If you configure this command and the cnf-file location command is configured for system:, the per phone or per phone type file for an ephone in the VRF group is created in system:/its/vrf<group-tag>/. Local files are still created in system:/its/.

If you configure this command and the cnf-file location command is configured as flash: or slot0:, the per phone or per phone type file for an ephone in the VRF group is named flash:/its/vrf<group-tag>_<filename> or slot0:/its/vrf<group tag>_filename>.

The location of the locale files is not affected by configuring a VRF group.

Examples

The following example shows the configuration for three VRF groups. Group 1 is on a global voice VRF and the other two groups are on data VRFs.

telephony-service
 sdspfarm conference mute-on # mute-off #
 sdspfarm units 4
 sdspfarm transcode sessions 10
 sdspfarm tag 1 xcode101
