Obtaining Cisco Unity License Files

License files, which enable the features purchased by the customer, are required for installing Cisco Unity software, for some upgrades, and for adding or changing licensed features. You obtain the license files by completing registration information on Cisco.com.

Shortly after registration, Cisco emails the license files. The email from Cisco contains instructions on how to save and store the files. The Cisco Unity Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide Release 8.x later provides specific instructions on the use of the license files. (For more information on licensing, refer to the white paper Licensing for Cisco Unity (All Versions) at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_white_papers_list.html.)


Note If the system is configured for failover, you install the license files only on the primary server.


The following information is required during registration:

The MAC address (physical address) for the network interface card (NIC) in the Cisco Unity server or, if a dual NIC is configured for fault tolerance, the MAC address that the two NICs share.

The product authorization key (PAK), which appears on the sticker located on the front of the sleeve for Cisco Unity DVD 1.

Do the following two procedures in the order listed.

To Get the MAC Address of the Cisco Unity Server


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, do one of the following:

If the server contains a dual NIC that has been configured for fault tolerance, run the NIC-configuration utility provided by the manufacturer, and write down the MAC address (excluding hyphens) that is shared by the two NICs. Then skip the rest of this procedure.

If the server does not contain a dual NIC or if the server contains a dual NIC that is not configured for fault tolerance, on the Windows Start menu, click Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

Step 2 In the Command Prompt window, enter ipconfig /all, and press Enter.

Step 3 Write down the value of Physical Address, excluding the hyphens, or save it to a file that you can access during online registration. (For example, if the physical address is 00-A1-B2-C3-D4-E5, record 00A1B2C3D4E5.)

If the server contains a dual NIC, two values will appear. Write down the value for the NIC that you will use to connect the Cisco Unity server to the network.

Step 4 Close the Command Prompt window.


To Register and Obtain the License Files


Step 1 Browse to the registration website at http://www.cisco.com/go/license (the URL is case sensitive).

You must be a registered user on Cisco.com to obtain license files.

Step 2 Enter the PAK or software serial number, and click Submit.

Step 3 Follow the on-screen prompts.

Step 4 Shortly after registration, you will receive an email with the Cisco Unity license files.

If license files are lost, it can take up to one business day to get another copy.


If you do not receive the license files within one hour or to get another copy of a license file, call the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and ask for the Licensing Team:

In the U.S.

800 553-2447

Outside
the U.S.

For your local Cisco TAC phone number, see the Cisco Worldwide Contacts page at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html.


Or open a service request using the TAC Service Request Tool at http://tools.cisco.com/ServiceRequestTool/create/DefineProblem.do.

You will need to provide information to verify Cisco Unity ownership—for example, the purchase order number or the PAK (which appears on the sticker located on the front of the sleeve for Cisco Unity DVD 1).

To Program Cisco Unified CM SCCP for the Additional Voice Messaging Ports

To Program a Circuit-Switched Phone System for the Additional Voice Messaging Ports


Note Adding ports is not necessary for SIP integrations such as for a Cisco Unified CM SIP trunk.


To Program Cisco Unified CM SCCP for the Additional Voice Messaging Ports


Step 1 If Cisco Unity is not configured for failover, in the Cisco Unified CM Administration, add the ports to the voicemail server that the Cisco Unity server uses. Refer to the Cisco Unified CM Administration Guide.

If Cisco Unity is configured for failover, in the Cisco Unified CM Administration, add the ports to the voicemail server that the primary Cisco Unity server uses, then add the same ports to the voicemail server that the secondary Cisco Unity server uses. Refer to the Cisco Unified CM Administration Guide.


Caution When Cisco Unity is configured for failover, device name prefix for the secondary server (the name of the voicemail server and voicemail ports that serve the secondary server) must be different from the device name prefix for the primary server (the name of the voicemail server and voicemail ports that serve the primary server). Otherwise, the secondary server cannot function correctly.

Step 2 If Cisco Unity is configured for failover, skip to Step 3.

If Cisco Unity is not configured for failover, for the new ports, add the directory numbers for new ports to the applicable line group depending on whether the port will answer calls or only dial out:

a. Plan how Cisco Unity will use the old and new ports for answering calls and dialing out. Refer to the "Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity" section in the applicable Cisco Unified Communications Manager integration guide, available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.

Adding 3GB and userva Switches to the Boot.ini File

If the Cisco Unity servers will be configured for more than 96 voice messaging ports, do the following procedure.


Caution For using more than 96 voice messaging ports, Windows 2003 must be installed on the Cisco Unity server. Otherwise, Cisco Unity may not function correctly. See System Requirements for Cisco Unity Release 8.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity/8x/requirements/8xcusysreq.html.

To Add 3GB and userva Switches to the Boot.ini File


Step 1 Open the c:\boot.ini file in a text editor.

Step 2 Add /3GB /userva=2800 to the line that includes WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows 2003 Server". For example:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Standard" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut /3GB /userva=2800

Step 3 Restart the server.


Adding Failover to the Cisco Unity 8.x System When Exchange Is Already on a Separate Server

Use the task list in this section to update the Cisco Unity system correctly.

Note that if Cisco Unity and Exchange are currently on the same server and the server is not a domain controller/global catalog server (DC/GC), you must first move Cisco Unity onto a different server. See the "Moving Cisco Unity 8.x onto a Separate Server" section on page 13-1.

If the Cisco Unity server is a DC/GC, you must reinstall all software because adding failover to a Cisco Unity server that is already a DC/GC is not supported, and because demoting a Cisco Unity server to a member server is not supported.

Task List for Adding Failover to the Cisco Unity System When Exchange Is Already on a Separate Server

1. Obtain the license file for the licensed Cisco Unity failover option. See the "Obtaining Cisco Unity License Files" section.

2. Run the Cisco Unity license file wizard on the existing Cisco Unity server. See the "Running the Cisco Unity License File Wizard to Add Failover" section.

3. Install the secondary Cisco Unity server with the same enabled features and configurations as the existing Cisco Unity server. Follow the task list instructions in the Part 2 section in the "Overview of Mandatory Tasks for Installing Cisco Unity" chapter of the applicable Installation Guide for Cisco Unity for your configuration. (Installation guides are available at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_installation_guides_list.html.)

4. Configure failover. See to the "Configuring Cisco Unity 8.x Failover" chapter of the Failover Configuration and Administration Guide for Cisco Unity at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity/8x/failover/guide/8xcufgx.html. Note that subscriber and call management data will be replicated to the secondary server after failover has been configured.

Obtaining Cisco Unity License Files

License files, which enable the features purchased by the customer, are required for installing Cisco Unity software, for some upgrades, and for adding or changing licensed features. You obtain the license files by completing registration information on Cisco.com.

Shortly after registration, Cisco emails the license files. The email from Cisco contains instructions on how to save and store the files. The Cisco Unity Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide Release 8.x later provides specific instructions on the use of the license files. (For more information on licensing, refer to the white paper Licensing for Cisco Unity (All Versions) at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_white_papers_list.html.)


Note If the system is configured for failover, you install the license files only on the primary server.


The following information is required during registration:

The MAC address (physical address) for the network interface card (NIC) in the Cisco Unity server or, if a dual NIC is configured for fault tolerance, the MAC address that the two NICs share.

The product authorization key (PAK), which appears on the sticker located on the front of the sleeve for Cisco Unity DVD 1.

Do the following two procedures in the order listed.

To Get the MAC Address of the Cisco Unity Server


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, do one of the following:

If the server contains a dual NIC that has been configured for fault tolerance, run the NIC-configuration utility provided by the manufacturer, and write down the MAC address (excluding hyphens) that is shared by the two NICs. Then skip the rest of this procedure.

If the server does not contain a dual NIC or if the server contains a dual NIC that is not configured for fault tolerance, on the Windows Start menu, click Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

Step 2 In the Command Prompt window, enter ipconfig /all, and press Enter.

Step 3 Write down the value of Physical Address, excluding the hyphens, or save it to a file that you can access during online registration. (For example, if the physical address is 00-A1-B2-C3-D4-E5, record 00A1B2C3D4E5.)

If the server contains a dual NIC, two values will appear. Write down the value for the NIC that you will use to connect the Cisco Unity server to the network.

Step 4 Close the Command Prompt window.


To Register and Obtain the License Files


Step 1 Browse to the registration website at http://www.cisco.com/go/license (URL is case sensitive).

You must be a registered user on Cisco.com to obtain license files.

Step 2 Enter the PAK or software serial number, and click Submit.

Step 3 Follow the on-screen prompts.

Step 4 Shortly after registration, you will receive an email with the Cisco Unity license files.

If license files are lost, it can take up to one business day to get another copy.


If you do not receive the license files within 1 hour or to get another copy of a license file, call the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) and ask for the Licensing Team:

In the U.S.

800 553-2447

Outside
the U.S.

For your local Cisco TAC phone number, see the Cisco Worldwide Contacts page at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html.


Or open a service request using the TAC Service Request Tool at http://tools.cisco.com/ServiceRequestTool/create/DefineProblem.do.

You will need to provide information to verify Cisco Unity ownership—for example, the purchase order number or the PAK (which appears on the sticker located on the front of the sleeve for Cisco Unity DVD 1).

Running the Cisco Unity License File Wizard to Add Failover

Do the following procedure only on the existing Cisco Unity server.

To Run the License File Wizard to Add Failover


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, log on to Windows by using the Cisco Unity installation account.

Step 2 On the Windows Start menu, click Programs > Cisco Unity > Cisco Unity Tools Depot.

Step 7 In the Open dialog box, browse to drive A or to the location where the license files are stored.

Step 8 Double-click the license file to add it to the License Files list.

If prompted, click Yes to copy the license file to the local system.


Caution License files are used cumulatively. Do not remove files from the License Files list, or the licenses provided by those files will be deactivated.

Step 9 If you are adding more than one license file, click Add, and repeat Step 7 and Step 8 for each license file.

Step 10 Click Next.

Step 11 On the Licensed Features in the Selected License Files page, confirm that the license information is correct.

Step 12 Click Next.

Step 13 On the Completing page, click Finish.

Step 14 Close the Cisco Unity Tools Depot window.

Step 15 Restart the Cisco Unity server.
