Cisco Survivable Remote Site Voicemail

Cisco Survivable Remote Site Voicemail 8.0 provides voicemail survivability for an organization's remote sites, such as branch offices or other small sites. Cisco Unified Survivable Remote Site Voicemail provides voicemail backup services for Cisco Unity deployed in the central site. Unity Express is provisioned at remote sites as remote Survivable Voicemail for Cisco Unity. When a remote site does not have access to Cisco Unity voicemail system during a network service interruption, Unity Express voicemail in the remote site is used as primary voicemail system and stores any voice messages received. Cisco Unity Express uses Unified Messaging Gateway provisioned in the central site to auto configure users for the SRSV mode. This helps to ensure the remote site continues to have voicemail and auto-attendant service.

When WAN connectivity is restored, user voicemails from Unity Express in the remote site are routed to Cisco Unity in the central site using Unified Messaging Gateway. Survivable Remote Site Voicemail module runs on remote sites on Integrated Services Routers Generation 1 and 2.

For more information, see the documentation at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/umg/rel8_0/release_notes/rn_srsv_cue_80.html

Cisco Intercompany Media Engine

Cisco Intercompany Media Engine 8.0(2) creates SIP trunks between enterprises, so that enterprises that work together appears to be one large business with intercluster trunks between the enterprises. Cisco IME allows companies to interconnect on demand over the Internet.

Cisco Intercompany Media Engine 8.0(2) includes the following features:

Works with phone numbers—Cisco IME works with the phone numbers customers have today. Cisco IME does not require customers to learn new numbers nor change providers.

Deployment Considerations

The tables in this section list the recommended software and firmware releases based on Cisco Unified Communications Release 8.0(2). Note that not every rebuild is tested as part of Cisco Unified Communications. Therefore, additional regression testing in a customer or Cisco-specific certification lab is recommended before deployment.

When deploying IP Communications in a customer environment, please remember the following:

At the minimum, customers should deploy the software release recommended in these tables.

For CSA, customers should use the latest engine and policy release. CSA software is available at:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/csa

For other software components, customers should use the most current rebuild of a maintenance release. For IOS, information about the latest releases, including deferral advisories, is available at:
http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Redirect.x?mdfid=268438303

If the recommended release has been deferred to a subsequent release, customers should use the subsequent release.

Before deploying a release, examine the open caveats in the chosen release to determine if any will impact your implementation. Open caveats can be viewed through the Bug Toolkit, located at:

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/

In system upgrades, deploy the chosen release in a lab environment that uses the same product components as the customer's product components before moving it to a production environment.

Software Version Matrix

Table 1 lists the software release versions of both Cisco and third-party components used in the Cisco Unified Communications Release 8.0(2) system test.

Important Notes

This section includes important notes related to the testing of Cisco Unified Communications System Release 8.0(2) for IP telephony and includes the following issues:

HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update

Unified Presence Service Activation and Feature Services Pages Do Not Display Properly (CSCtf84913)

HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update

The HP SCSI hard drive firmware update issue addresses the following defects:

CSCse71185: Certain HP Ultra320 SCSI HDs May Exhibit Reduced Perf and Timeouts

CSCse71295: HP FW Recommended to Min Potential for Media Errors on Certain SCSI HD

CSCso98836: HP Ultra320 SCSI HDD FW Upgrade

CSCse71185: Certain HP Ultra320 SCSI HDs May Exhibit Reduced Perf and Timeouts

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00677430 (available at http://www.hp.com) may exhibit reduced performance or have excessive timeouts. This performance issue is caused by the dynamically adjusted seek time profile table in the drive firmware after it becomes degraded.

When this problem occurs, the reduced performance is characterized by occasional brief delays in command response time while servicing random workloads and in severe cases the drive may exhibit command timeouts, which requires a server reboot for recovery.

CSCse71295: HP FW Recommended to Min Potential for Media Errors on Certain SCSI HD

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00542020 (available at http://www.hp.com) may report media errors or illuminate the drive fault LED. The corrected firmware version (HPB4 or later) reduces the hard drive idle time that could potentially lead to build-up of media lubricant on the disk surface or drive head, causing the drives to report media errors or illuminate the drive fault LED.

CSCso98836: HP Ultra320 SCSI HDD FW Upgrade

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00859596 (available at http://www.hp.com) may exhibit timeouts and SCSI downshifts.

These problems may occur on the following server models:

MCS-7835-1266 (DL380-G2)

MCS-7835H-2.4 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7835H-3.0 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7835-H1 (DL380-G4)

MCS-7845-1400 (DL380-G2)

MCS-7845H-2.4 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7845H-3.0 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7845-H1 (DL380-G4)

The affected hard drives for these problems are listed in the associated HP Customer Advisories. However, the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD can be applied to all listed server types and the impacted drives will be updated if applicable.

To update the firmware to a Cisco tested level, use the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD released simultaneous to the Unified Communications 7.0(1) system release. For more details on installing the firmware, see the README.txt file for HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD.

The ISO image for the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD and associated readme file may be obtained from Cisco.com at the following navigation path:

Unified Presence Service Activation and Feature Services Pages Do Not Display Properly (CSCtf84913)

This defect (CSCtf84913) occurs after the bridge upgrade from Unified Presence Release 6.x to Release 8.0(1) via Unified Presence Release 7.x. It also occurs after the bridge upgrade from Unified Presence Release 7.x to Release 8.0(1).


Note Cisco Unified Presence provides a bridge upgrade to customers to migrate from a discontinued hardware to supported hardware. The bridge upgrade allows you to create a DRS backup on the discontinued hardware. You can then restore the DRS backup on supported hardware after you complete a fresh Cisco Unified Presence installation on the supported hardware.


Workaround:

Follow the upgrade recommendations below for the bridge upgrade to succeed:

Upgrading from Unified Presence Release 6.x to 8.0(1):

a. Instead of performing a bridge upgrade to Unified Presence 8.0(1), you should upgrade Unified Presence Release 6.x to 7.x on the discontinued hardware.

b. Perform a DRS backup.

c. Then complete a fresh installation of Unified Presence Release 7.x on the supported hardware.

d. Finally restore the DRS backup on the supported hardware and upgrade to Unified Presence Release 8.0(1).

Upgrading from Unified Presence 7.x to 8.0(1):

a. Instead of performing a bridge upgrade to Unified Presence 8.0(1), you should perform a DRS backup of the Unified Presence Release 7.x on the discontinued hardware.

b. Then complete a fresh installation of Unified Presence Release 7.x on the supported hardware.

c. Finally restore the DRS backup on the supported hardware and upgrade to Unified Presence Release 8.0(1).
