Release 9.0 Base Configuration Updates

This topic lists base configuration file updates subsequent to the initial base configuration of Release 9.0(1). If you have an older base configuration, you need to apply the missing configuration items manually before upgrading to a later version. For example, if you upgrade from Release 9.0(1) to Release 9.0(4), you need to manually update the Release 9.0(2) and Release 9.0(3) base configuration changes. To update manually, change deployment type from Packaged CCE so that you can access the appropriate Configuration Manager tools.


Note


Installing the latest base configuration will delete existing configuration information.

      Install and Configure External AW-HDS-DDS

      The default deployment pulls data from the Logger database on the CCE Data Server, where Real-time, Historical and Call Detail Data are stored. Retention is 400 days for historical data and 40 days for Call Detail data.

      If you need a longer retention period, you have the option to install the Administration Server, Real Time and Historical Data Server, Detail Data Server (AW-HDS-DDS) on a maximum of two separate, external servers. Each external server is configured as Central Controller Side A Preferred or Central Controller Side B Preferred.

      Requirement for the External Server

      Refer to the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Design Guide, Release 10.0(1) at http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​products/​sw/​custcosw/​ps1844/​products_​implementation_​design_​guides_​list.htmlfor the requirements for the external server AW-HDS-DDS.

      Installation of the External Server

      Installation of the External Server

      Configuration of the External Server

      Configure the external server as follows:

      Verify Configuration Manager for External AW-HDS-DDS

      Site name values are set by the Base Configuration tool. DO NOT CHANGE THEM.

      Follow this procedure to verify that the site names are correct.

      Procedure
        Step 1   Navigate to Unified CCE Administration Manager > Configuration Manager.
        Step 2   Click Tools > Explorer Tools > PG Explorer.
        Step 3   Click Retrieve.
        Step 4   Select Generic_PG.
        Step 5   Select CUCM_PG_1.
        Step 6   Click the Agent Distribution tab.
        1. Check Enable agent reporting.
        2. Verify that these two site names appear in the Agent distribution entries: AW_SideA and AW_SideB and that Agent real-time data and Agent historical data is enabled (is set to Y) on both.
        3. Verify that an external database with the site name CCE-AW-1 appears, with Agent real-time data and Agent historical data enabled (set to Y).
        4. Verify that an external database with the site name CCE-AW-2 appears, with Agent real-time data and Agent historical data enabled (set to Y).
        Step 7   If you intend to report on Agent Not Ready reason codes, also check Agent event detail.

            Network Configuration and QoS

            Your Wide Area Network must support QoS. For details, refer to the Bandwidth Provisioning and QoS considerations section in the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Design Guide: http:/​/​www.cisco.com/​en/​US/​partner/​products/​sw/​custcosw/​ps1844/​products_​implementation_​design_​guides_​list.html.

            Simple Network Management Protocol

            Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) facilitates the exchange of management information among network devices so that administrators can manage network performance and solve network problems. SNMP community strings, users, and network destinations are configured in Cisco Unified Serviceability.

            Unified Serviceability is one of the tools that open from the Navigation drop-down in Cisco Unified Communications Solutions tools. You can also access Unified Serviceability by entering http://x.x.x.x/ccmservice/, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the publisher.

            Community Strings

            The SNMP agent uses community strings to provide security. You must configure community strings to access any management information base (MIB). Add new community strings in the Cisco Serviceability Administration interface.

            A community string is configured with:
            • a server
            • a name of up to 32 characters
            • a setting to accept SNMP packets from any host or from specified hosts
            • access privileges (readonly, readwrite, readwritenotify, notifyonly, readnotifyonly, and none)
            • a setting to apply the community string to all nodes in the cluster

            Notification Destinations

            Add notification destinations for delivery of SNMP notification events when events occur. Add and maintain notification destinations in the Cisco Serviceability Administration interface.

            A notification destination is configured with:
            • a server
            • the host IP addresses of the trap destination
            • a port number
            • the SNMP version (V1 or V2c)
            • the community string name to be used in the notification messages that the host generates
            • the notification type
            • a setting to apply to the notification destination configuration to all nodes in the cluster

            Virtualization for Packaged CCE

            VMware Feature Support

            The list below designates which VMware features can be supported by Packaged CCE while in production under load due to the known or unpredictable behavior they may have on the applications. Many of the VMware features that cannot be supported in production can be used within a customer's planned maintenance downtime, where any interruption will not impact business operations. Some unsupported features will by their function cause violation of the Packaged CCE validation rules.

            ESXi Counters

            The ESXi server and virtual machines must operated within the limits of these key ESXi performance counters:

            Category Object Measurement Units Description Performance Indication and Threshold

            Disk

            • ESXi Server vmhba ID
            • VM vmhba ID

            Disk Command Aborts

            Number

            Number of disk commands aborted on this disk in the period. Disk command aborts when the disk array is taking too long to respond to the command. (Command timeout)

            This counter should be zero. A non-zero value indicates storage performance issue.

            Disk

            • ESXi Server vmhba ID
            • VM vmhba ID

            Disk Command Latency

            mSec

            The average amount of time taken for a command from the perspective of a Guest OS. Disk Command Latency = Kernel Command Latency + Physical Device Command Latency.

            24ms latencies or greater indicates a possible over-utilized, misbehaving, or mis-configured disk array.

            Disk

            • ESXi Server vmhba ID
            • VM vmhba ID

            Kernel Disk Command Latency

            mSec

            The average time spent in ESXi Server VMKernel per command

            Kernel Command Latency should be very small in comparison to the Physical Device Command Latency, and it should be close to zero. Kernel Command Latency can be high, or even higher than the Physical Device Command Latency if there is a lot of queuing in the ESXi kernel.
