Configuring the SIP Proxy Server Location for Cisco Unity Express

The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) proxy server resides on the router with an installed Cisco Unity Express module. The SIP proxy server location information must be configured properly to enable all communications between Cisco Unity Express and Cisco CallManager Express. The SIP proxy server also enables the message waiting indicators (MWIs) to work with the Cisco Unity Express voice mail application.


Note The SIP proxy server used to support Cisco Unity Express does not provide the full equivalent functionality as the Cisco SIP Proxy Server product.

What to Do Next

Configure the voice mail application. See "Configuring the Voice Mail Application".

Configuring the Voice Mail Application

After the Cisco Unity Express software is installed on the system, the voice mail application that ships with Cisco Unity Express must be configured using the procedures described in this section. The application is enabled by default.

To configure the voice-mail access and operator telephone numbers, see "Configuring SIP Triggers for the Applications".

The commands are used in both EXEC and configuration modes.

Sharing Ports Among Applications and Triggers

One of the parameters that you may configure for the voice mail and auto attendant applications is the maximum number of callers who can access the application concurrently at any given time. This parameter, maxsessions, is limited by the number of ports on the Cisco Unity Express module. (See "Software Licenses and Factory-Set Limits" on page 3 for the number of ports on your module.)

Consider your expected call traffic when assigning the number of ports to an application. One application may need more available ports than another, but each application should have at least one port available for incoming calls.

Suppose, for example, that your module has 4 ports and you assign 4 to the voice mail application maxsessions and 4 to the auto attendant maxsessions. If 4 callers access voice mail simultaneously, no ports will be available for auto attendant callers. Only when 0, 1, 2, or 3 callers access voice mail simultaneously will at least one port be available for auto attendant.

Suppose, instead, you assign 3 to the voice-mail maxsessions and 3 to the auto attendant maxsessions. At no time will one application use up all the ports. If voice mail has 3 active calls, then 1 caller can access auto attendant. A second call to auto attendant will not go through at that moment.

Similarly, you must assign the maxsessions parameter to each application trigger, which is the telephone number that activates the application's script. The value of the trigger's maxsessions must not exceed the application's maxsessions value.

Configuring the Greeting Management System Application

The Greeting Management System (GMS) application is a telephony-based interface that allows Cisco Unity Express administrators to record new audio prompts or delete exsiting custom audio prompts without using a PC or sound-editing software. These prompts can then be used in various Cisco Unity Express Automated Attendant (AA) scripts, such as the Welcome prompt in the default auto attendant. The Emergency Alternate Greeting (EAG) is an option within the GMS that allows users to record, modify, and enable or disable a special greeting to be played prior to the regular greeting, notifying callers of some temporary event or message.

The Cisco Unity Express module installation automatically configures the GMS application. This application permits recording and administration of auto attendant prompts using the telephone user interface (TUI).

Only users with administrative (superuser) privileges or greeting management (ManagePrompt) privileges have access to the GMS. (See "Adding and Modifying a Group" on page 71 for information about assigning privileges.) When a caller dials the GMS number, the GMS authenticates the caller by requesting the caller's extension and PIN. The GMS disconnects the caller if the caller does not have administrative authority.

To configure the GMS access telephone number, see "Configuring SIP Triggers for the Applications".

Configuring and Managing the Auto Attendant Application

After the Cisco Unity Express software is installed on the system, the auto attendant application that ships with Cisco Unity Express must be configured using the procedures described in this section.

The only component of the default auto attendant which resides in the user directory is an audio prompt file called AAWelcome.wav. This is the default welcome greeting prompt. All other audio prompt files used by the auto attendant reside in the system directory and cannot be downloaded, copied, or uploaded by users. To customized the default welcome greeting prompt, see "Customizing the Default Auto Attendant Welcome Prompt".

The default auto attendant script provided with Cisco Unity Express is named aa.aef. This file resides in the system directory, and cannot be downloaded, copied, or uploaded by users. This default auto attendant application is also known as the "system script", or "system AA". This default script supports basic functions such as dial-by-extension, dial-by-spelling username, and call operator functions. If additional functionality is required, then you must create a customized auto attendant script. To create customized script files, see "Configuring Auto Attendant Scripts".

To configure the auto attendant access telephone number, see "Configuring SIP Triggers for the Applications".

The commands are used in both EXEC and configuration modes.

See "Configuring Application Parameters" on page 108 for procedures to configure user-defined parameters.

Prerequisites

The following information is required to configure auto attendant:

To use your own welcome greeting, create a .wav file containing the prerecorded welcome greeting. This file must be uploaded to Cisco Unity Express module so that it can be located and saved in the auto attendant script. Alternatively, you can use the greeting management system (GMS) to record the welcome greeting. See "Recording an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File" for guidelines on recording a greeting. See "Uploading the Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File" for the procedure to upload the prompt to Cisco Unity Express.

Application name

Number of times the auto attendant will replay instructions to a caller before the call is disconnected. This count begins when the caller moves past the main menu and starts to hear instructions for a submenu. The main menu will play five times and then, if the caller makes no choice or incorrect choices, will transfer to the operator.

Extension number of the operator. Auto attendant dials this extension when the caller presses the zero ("0") button.

The customized WAV filename if you change the default auto attendant welcome prompt.

Telephone number that the caller must dial to reach the auto attendant. In many cases, this number is your company telephone number.

Maximum number of callers that auto attendant can handle simultaneously. See "Sharing Ports Among Applications and Triggers" for guidelines on assigning this value.

Configuring Auto Attendant Prompts

Cisco Unity Express supports customized greeting and prompt files. The NM supports up to 50 prompts; the AIM supports up to 25 prompts. When using the default auto attendant, the only greeting or prompt that can be customized is the "WelcomePrompt" contained in the AAwelcome.wav file.

Customizing prompts requires the following procedures:

Recording an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

Customizing the Default Auto Attendant Welcome Prompt

Uploading the Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

(Optional) Downloading an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

(Optional) Deleting an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

Recording an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

Two methods are available to create auto attendant greeting and prompt files:

Create a.wav file with the following format: G.711 U-law, 8 kHz, 8 bit, Mono. The file cannot be larger than 1 MB, which corresponds to a greeting length of approximately 120 seconds. After recording the greeting, use the GUI or Cisco Unity Express CLI ccn copy url command to copy the file in to the Cisco Unity Express system. See the next section, "Uploading the Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File," for the upload procedure.

Use the GMS on the TUI to record the greeting or prompt. Dial the GMS telephone number and select the option to record a greeting. When finished recording, save the file. GMS automatically saves the file in Cisco Unity Express.

The GMS prompt filename has the format UserPrompt_DateTime.wav, for example: UserPrompt_11152003144055.wav. You may want to use CLI commands or GUI options to download the file to a PC, rename the file with a meaningful name, then upload the file back to Cisco Unity Express.

Cisco recommends using the GMS on the TUI to record greetings and prompts because the GMS provides higher sound quality compared to .wav files recorded using other methods.

Customizing the Default Auto Attendant Welcome Prompt

The default auto attendant greeting included with the system lasts two seconds and plays the prompt "Welcome to the Automated Attendant". You can record a custom welcome prompt specifically for your system to welcome callers. The default WAV filename is AAwelcome.wav. While the default welcome prompt in the WAV file lasts two seconds long, you can record a new welcome prompt up to 120 seconds long. The welcome prompt WAV file can be up to 1 MB in G.711 U-law format.

If you create a customized welcome prompt, use a different WAV filename and upload the new WAV file to the Cisco Unity Express module. Do not overwrite the default AAwelcome.wav filename. For information about uploading the welcome prompt WAV file, see "Uploading the Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File".

Uploading the prompt will not make the auto attendant start using the new welcome prompt. You need to configure the prompt name as the parameter as described in the "Configuring and Managing the Auto Attendant Application" section.


Note The WAV file for the welcome prompt is not interruptible, meaning that the longer the recorded welcome prompt is, the longer callers must wait before being able to enter digits to reach other extensions. Cisco recommends you record a short welcome prompt so that callers can access the auto attendant system quickly.


Following this welcome prompt, the default script plays the menu announcement listing the menu options for callers. These prompts within the default auto attendant provided with the system are not customizable. Note that if a caller uses the dial-by-extension option, the system will attempt to transfer to any extension, including extensions not defined using Cisco Unity Express. To prevent callers from transferring to extensions not defined using Cisco Unity Express, configure class of restrictions (COR) on the dial-peer, or develop a custom script to prevent the option.

Uploading the Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

After recording the.wav greeting or prompt file, upload the file using the ccn copy command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn copy url source-ip-address prompt prompt-filename

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy url ftp://10.100.10.123/AAprompt1.wav prompt AAprompt1.wav
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy url http://www.server.com/AAgreeting.wav prompt AAgreeting.wav

This command is equivalent to using the GUI option Voice Mail > Prompts and selecting Upload.

An error message appears if you try to upload more than the maximum number of prompts allowed on your Cisco Unity Express module.


Note The AAWelcome.wav file resides in the Prompts/user/en_US/ directory. All the other system prompts reside in the Prompts/system/en_US/ directory. When you upload the WAV file using the ccn copy url command, the updated file is uploaded back to the Prompts/user/en_US/ directory, and not to the Prompts/system/en_US/ directory.


Downloading an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

Greetings and prompts can be copied from the auto attendant and stored to another server or PC.

To copy a greeting or prompt file, use the ccn copy command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn copy prompt prompt-file-name url destination-ip-address

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy prompt AAprompt2.wav url ftp://10.100.10.123/AAprompt2.wav

Deleting an Auto Attendant Greeting or Prompt File

To delete an auto attendant greeting or prompt file from Cisco Unity Express, use the ccn delete command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn delete prompt prompt-filename

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn delete prompt AAgreeting.wav

Configuring Auto Attendant Scripts

Cisco Unity Express supports customized script files. The NM supports up to 8 scripts; the AIM supports up to 4 scripts.

Customizing scripts requires the following procedures:

Creating an Auto Attendant Script

Uploading the Auto Attendant Script File

(Optional) Downloading an Auto Attendant Script File

(Optional) Deleting an Auto Attendant Script File

Creating an Auto Attendant Script

The auto attendant script file is created using the script editor program. Refer to Cisco Unity Express Script Editor Guide for guidelines and procedures for creating a script file.

The file cannot be larger than 256 KB.

After creating the script, use the GUI or Cisco Unity Express CLI ccn copy command to copy the file in to the Cisco Unity Express system. See the next section, "Uploading the Auto Attendant Script File," for the upload procedure.

Uploading the Auto Attendant Script File

After recording the .wav greeting or prompt file, upload the file using the ccn copy command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn copy url source-ip-address script script-filename

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy url ftp://10.100.10.123/GMSscript.aef script GMSscript.aef
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy url http://www.server.com/GMSscript.aef script GMSscript.aef

This command is equivalent to using the GUI option Voice Mail > Scripts and selecting Upload.

An error message appears if you try to upload more than the maximum number of scripts allowed on your Cisco Unity Express module.

Downloading an Auto Attendant Script File

Scripts can be copied from the auto attendant and stored on another server or PC.

To copy a script file, use the ccn copy command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn copy script prompt-file-name url destination-ip-address

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn copy script GMSscript.aef url ftp://10.100.10.123/GMSscript.aef

Deleting an Auto Attendant Script File

To delete an auto attendant script file from Cisco Unity Express, use the ccn delete command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

ccn delete script script-filename

Example:
se-10-0-0-0# ccn delete script GMSscript.aef
Are you sure you want to delete this script? (y/n)


Configuring SIP Triggers for the Applications

After the voice mail, auto attendant and GMS applications are configured, the system must be configured to start the voice mail, auto attendant, and GMS applications when a specific signal, or trigger, is invoked. The trigger is a telephone number. When a caller dials a specified telephone number, the SIP subsystem starts the voice mail, auto attendant, or GMS application.

See "Advanced Configuration" on page 105 for procedures to configure multiple triggers for an application.

Prerequisites

The following information is required to configure the SIP triggers for auto attendant:

Telephone number that invokes the application. The number must be different for voice mail, auto attendant, and the GMS. The number value should match one of the patterns configured in the destination-pattern field of the SIP dial peer pointing to Cisco Unity Express.

Maximum number of callers, or sessions, that can access the trigger simultaneously. See "Sharing Ports Among Applications and Triggers" for guidelines on assigning this value.

Deleting a SIP Application Trigger

Use this procedure to delete a SIP application trigger. Deleting the trigger does not delete the application, although the application needs at least one trigger in order to be invoked by the system.

Prerequisites

The trigger number is required to delete a trigger.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. show ccn trigger

2. config t

3. no ccn trigger sip phonenumber number

4. exit

5. show ccn trigger

6. copy running-config startup-config

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

show ccn trigger

Displays the currently configured triggers. Look for the telephone number that you want to delete. Verify that this telephone number is associated with the correct application.

Step 2 

config t

Enters configuration mode.

Step 3 

no ccn trigger sip phonenumber number

Example:

se-10-0-0-0(config)# no ccn trigger sip phonenumber 50100

Deletes the trigger number.

Step 4 

exit

Exits configuration mode.

Step 5 

show ccn trigger

Displays the configured triggers.

Step 6 

copy running-config startup-config

Configuring System-Wide Mailbox Default Values

The following system-wide parameters are configurable for all new voice mailboxes. These values are assigned automatically to a new voice mailbox. Several of these values have factory default values. See "Feature Overview" on page 1 for the maximum values for your system.

Capacity—The total amount of storage time in hours allowed for all mailboxes in the system. The factory default is the maximum allowed storage for your system.

Expiration date—The number of days a message is saved in the mailbox. When the user logs in to the voice mailbox, the user hears a message listing all the expired messages. The user can save, skip, or delete each message. The factory default value is 30 days.

Language—The language used for voice mail prompts. In Release 1.1.2, U.S. English is the only language available.

Mailbox size—The maximum number of seconds of storage for voice messages in a mailbox. The factory default value is determined by dividing the maximum storage capacity by the maximum number of mailboxes (personal plus general delivery).

Message length—The maximum number of seconds for any one stored message in a mailbox. The factory default is 60 seconds.

Recording time—The maximum amount of time for a user's recorded mailbox greeting.

Operator extension—The extension of the voice-mail operator.


Caution The voice-mail telephone number and the voice-mail operator's telephone number should not be the same. If they are, then a user trying to call the operator while in the voice-mail system will be directed back to the voice-mail system. Also, an outside caller who presses the button for the operator will be connected to the voice-mail system.

See "Creating and Modifying a Voice Mailbox" on page 75 for the procedure to configure different values for mailbox size, message length, and expiration date for a specific mailbox.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. config t

2. voicemail capacity time minutes

3. voicemail defaults {expiration days | language | mailboxsize mailboxsize_seconds |
messagesize messagesize_seconds}

4. voicemail operator telephone tel_number

5. voicemail recording time minutes

6. exit

7. copy running-config startup-config

DETAILED STEPS

 
Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1 

config t

Enters configuration mode.

Step 2 

voicemail capacity time minutes

Example:

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail capacity time 3000

Sets the time value as the system-wide maximum storage space in minutes allowed for all configured mailboxes.

Step 3 

voicemail default {expiration days | language |
mailboxsize mailboxsize_seconds |
messagesize messagesize_seconds}

Example:

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail default expiration 30

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail default mailboxsize 300

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail default messagesize 120

Assigns default values for new individual or general delivery mailboxes. These values can be configured later to other values for specific mailboxes.

expiration days—Sets the number of days a message can be stored in a mailbox before the voice-mail system deletes it.

language—Specifies the language used for voice-mail prompts. In Release 1.0, only U.S. English is available.

mailboxsize mailboxsize_seconds—Sets the maximum number of seconds for storing messages in a mailbox.

messagesize messagesize_seconds—Sets the maximum number of seconds for a caller's message stored in a mailbox.

Step 4 

voicemail operator telephone tel_number

Example:

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail operator telephone 9000

Assigns the tel_number value as the voice-mail operator's extension. A mailbox owner dials this extension while in the voice-mail system to reach the voice-mail operator. Do not assign this extension to a group. This extension need not be the same as the auto attendant operator extension.

Step 5 

voicemail recording time minutes

Example:

se-10-0-0-0(config)# voicemail recording time 10

Assigns the time value in minutes as the maximum recording time for any greeting or message in the voice-mail system.

Step 6 

exit

Exits configuration mode.

Step 7 

copy running-config startup-config

Copies the configuration change to the startup configuration.

Configuring the MWI On and Off Extensions

Cisco Unity Express uses the MWI on and off extensions with the affected telephone extension to generate a SIP call to Cisco CME, which changes the status of the telephone's MWI light.

Cisco Unity Express refreshes the MWI lights automatically when new messages are received, saved, or deleted or when the software is initialized.Use the GUI option or CLI commands to refresh the MWI lights for a specific telephone or for all configured telephones. See "Refreshing Message Waiting Indicators" on page 81 for the procedure to refresh MWI lights.

Prerequisites

Verify that the MWI on and off extensions are configured on Cisco CME; otherwise, the MWI light will not work.

The following information is required to configure the MWI on and off extensions:

Extension number dedicated to the MWI on extension

Extension number dedicated to the MWI off extension

SUMMARY STEPS

Starting from Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode:

1. config t

2. ccn application ciscomwiapplication

3. parameter strMWI_ON_DN on_extension

4. parameter strMWI_OFF_DN off_extension

5. end

6. copy running-config startup-config

DETAILED STEPS

Step 6 

copy running-config startup-config

Copies the configuration change to the startup configuration.

Checking AIM Flash Memory Wear Activity

Cisco Unity Express tracks the use and wear of the AIM flash memory as log and trace data are saved to the module. To display this data, use the show interface ide 0 command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode.

show interface ide 0


The following is sample output:

se-10-0-0-0# show interface ide 0
IDE hd0 is up, line protocol is up
     3496 reads, 46828544 bytes
     0 read errors
     9409 write, 137857024 bytes
     0 write errors
     0.09933333333333333% worn

To check the log and trace files on the flash memory, use the log trace command in Cisco Unity Express EXEC mode.

log trace

Logging and tracing to the flash memory is turned off by default. Executing the log trace command starts the log and trace functions immediately.

The command displays the atrace.log and messages.log files. Each file has a fixed length of 10 MB, and tracing or logging stops automatically when the file reaches this length. New files overwrite the old files.
