Release Notes for
CiscoWorks2000 Voice Manager Release 2.1
These release notes are for use with CiscoWorks2000 Voice Manager (CVM) Release 2.1 running on Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Solaris.
These release notes provide:
This section summarizes the new features in this release:
•Distributed CVM—CVM has been enhanced to allow multiple CVM servers to be viewed and managed from a single client. A CVM master has been added; it acts as the control point for CVM servers, managing networks, user accounts, and user access privileges.
•Network partitioning—CVM now supports the ability to partition groups of devices into different networks and manage them separately from each other. The CVM Master Administrator can create multiple networks and assign user access privileges for each network. One network can be partitioned among multiple CVM servers, and one CVM server can manage multiple networks.
•Gatekeeper, Ds0, Ds1,DSP, and CPU statistics, and memory utilization—The CVM Poller data file includes this device information; third party reporting tools can report against the file.
•Directory gatekeeper support—CVM now supports a hierarchy of gatekeepers, in which gatekeepers at a hierarchy node are called directory gatekeepers. A directory gatekeeper is a gatekeeper for other gatekeepers, doing address resolution and zone management for its child gatekeepers or directory gatekeepers.
•Gatekeeper configuration enhancements—HSRP backup gatekeepers, E-164 address routing, and bandwidth management are among the new configuration options.
•Dial peer configuration enhancements—Many new dial peer configuration options are provided.
•Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) User Agent support—Allows SIP supported gateways to be configured and allows dial peers to be configured for them.
•Enhanced trap processing.
•New syslog monitoring for configuration changes.
•Option to use TFTP to update device configuration.
•Support for Cisco Access Servers: AS5800, AS5400, AS5350, and AS5850.
•CD One, 4th Edition support.

Technical Assistance Center
The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two types of support are available through the Cisco TAC: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
Inquiries to Cisco TAC are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:
•Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
•Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
•Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
•Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
Which Cisco TAC resource you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.
Cisco TAC Web Site
The Cisco TAC Web Site allows you to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to the following URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco services contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to the following URL to register:
If you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, and you are a Cisco.com registered user, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at the following URL:
If you have Internet access, it is recommended that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco TAC Escalation Center
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses issues that are classified as priority level 1 or priority level 2; these classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer will automatically open a case.
To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to the following URL:
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled; for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA).
