Multiple Phone System Integration Guide for Cisco Unity Connection 1.2


Revised August 3, 2006

This document provides instructions for integrating multiple phone systems with Cisco Unity Connection, deleting one of the phone systems that are integrated with Cisco Unity Connection, and replacing one phone system with another phone system in a Cisco Unity Connection integration.

Integration Tasks

Before doing the following tasks to integrate Cisco Unity Connection with multiple phone systems, confirm that the Cisco Unity Connection is ready for the additional integration by completing the applicable tasks in the Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide.

The following task lists describe the process for creating, deleting, and replacing the integrations.

Task List to Create Multiple Phone System Integrations

Use the following task list to integrate multiple phone systems with Cisco Unity Connection. If you are installing Cisco Unity Connection by using the Cisco Unity Connection Installation Guide, you may have already completed some of the following tasks.

1. Review the system and equipment requirements to confirm that all phone system and Cisco Unity Connection requirements have been met. See the "Requirements" section.

2. Confirm that the combination of phone systems is supported in a multiple phone system integration with Cisco Unity Connection. See the "Supported Combinations" section.

3. Create the integration with the first phone system. See the "Creating Multiple Phone System Integrations" section.


Note An additional Cisco Unified CallManager cluster can be added by creating a new phone system integration through the Phone System Integration Wizard. Each Cisco Unified CallManager cluster is a separate phone system integration. Cisco Unity Connection supports up to 10 Cisco Unified CallManager clusters at one time.


4. Repeat Task 1. through Task 3. for each remaining phone system.

Task List to Delete an Existing Phone System Integration

Use the following task list to delete one of the phone systems that is integrated with Cisco Unity Connection (for example, to change from two phone system integrations to a single phone system integration).

Creating Multiple Phone System Integrations

After ensuring that the Cisco Unity Connection server and the phone systems are ready for the integration, do the following procedure.

To Create Multiple Phone System Integrations


Step 1 Integrate one phone system with Cisco Unity Connection. Refer to the applicable Cisco Unity Connection integration guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/products_installation_and_configuration_guides_list.html.

You can integrate the phone systems with Cisco Unity Connection in any order.

Step 2 Repeat Step 1 for the remaining phone systems.

Step 3 Add applicable new user templates that are assigned to the new phone system so that new users can be assigned to the phone system that you want. For details on adding new user templates, refer to the "Adding, Changing, or Deleting an Account Template" chapter in the Cisco Unity Connection User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html.

For details on selecting a user template when adding a new user, refer to the applicable chapter for adding user accounts in the Cisco Unity Connection User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_maintenance_guides_list.html.


Deleting an Existing Phone System Integration

If you want to delete an existing phone system integration (for example, you have replaced the phone system with which Cisco Unity Connection originally integrated), confirm that the following items are deleted or associated to another phone system:

Users (including MWI devices and notification devices) who are associated with the phone system that you want to delete.

To see a list of users associated with the phone system, in Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations > Phone System; click the name of the phone system; on the Phone System Basics page, on the Edit menu, click Phone System Associations.

User templates that are associated with the phone system that you want to delete.

System call handlers that are associated with the phone system that you want to delete.

Call handler templates that are associated with the phone system that you want to delete.

If users, user templates, call handlers, MWI devices, or notification devices are associated with this phone system, Cisco Unity Connection cannot delete the phone system.

When you attempt to delete a phone system that still has these items associated with it, a status warning will appear with a link to the Delete Phone System Wizard. This wizard will guide you to associate all items from the phone system that you want to delete to another phone system.

All users, user templates, call handlers, MWI devices and notification devices that are associated with a phone system must be reassigned before the phone system can be deleted.


Note You can see a list of users who are associated with a phone system on the Phone System Associations page for the phone system. To view Phone System Associations page, on the Phone System Basics page, click Phone System Associations on the Edit menu.


It is not necessary to delete the port groups or ports that belong to a phone system before deleting the phone system integration. The member port groups and ports will be automatically deleted with the phone system.


Note Port groups and ports that do not belong to the phone system will not be affected when the phone system integration is deleted.


Do the following procedure.

To Delete an Existing Phone System Integration


Step 1 Log on to Cisco Unity Connection Administration.

Step 2 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, expand Telephony Integrations, then click Phone System.

Step 3 On the Search Phone Systems page, check the check box to the left of the phone system that you want to delete.

Step 4 Click Delete Selected.

Step 5 When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the phone system, click OK.

Step 6 If prompted to restart Cisco Unity Connection, in the Windows task bar, right-click the Cisco Unity Connection icon and click Restart > Voice Processing Server Role.

Step 7 When prompted to confirm stopping the Voice Processing server role, click Yes.

Step 8 Log off Cisco Unity Connection Administration.

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
