Requirements

The Cisco CallManager integration supports configurations of the following components:

Phone System

A Cisco IP telephony applications server consisting of Cisco CallManager 4.0(1) or later, running on a Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS) or customer-provided server meeting approved Cisco configuration standards.

Cisco licenses for all phone lines, IP phones, and other H.323-compliant devices or software (such as Cisco VirtualPhone and Microsoft NetMeeting clients) that will be connected to the network, as well as one license for each Cisco Unity port.

IP phones for the Cisco CallManager extensions.

A LAN connection in each location where you will plug an IP phone into the network.

For multiple Cisco CallManager clusters, subscribers can dial an extension on another Cisco CallManager cluster without having to dial a trunk access code or prefix.

Cisco Unity Server

Cisco Unity version 3.0(x), installed and ready for the integration as described in the Cisco Unity Installation Guide.

A system key with the integration type set to "TAPI" and with the applicable number of voice messaging ports enabled. If you are integrating Cisco Unity with two phone systems (Cisco CallManager and a second, non-IP phone system), the integration type on the system key must be set to "Multiple Integrations."

A Cisco license for each Cisco Unity port.

Integration Description

The Cisco CallManager integration uses the LAN to connect Cisco Unity and the phone system. The gateway provides connections to the PSTN. Figure 1 shows the connections.

Figure 1 Connections Between the Phone System and Cisco Unity

Some countries require a phone system between the public phone network and the gateway.

The following steps give an overview of the path an external call takes through the Cisco AVVID network.

1. When an external call arrives, the Cisco gateway sends the call over the LAN to the machine on which Cisco CallManager is installed.

2. For Cisco CallManager lines that are configured to route calls to Cisco Unity, Cisco CallManager routes the call to an available Cisco Unity extension.

3. Cisco Unity answers the call and plays the opening greeting.

4. During the opening greeting, the caller enters either the name of a subscriber or an extension, for example, 1234.

5. Cisco Unity notifies Cisco CallManager that it has a call for extension 1234.

6. At this point, the path of the call depends on whether Cisco Unity is set up to do supervised transfers or release transfers.

 
Supervised transfers

While Cisco Unity holds the call, Cisco CallManager attempts to establish a connection with extension 1234.

If the line is available, Cisco CallManager connects the call from Cisco Unity to extension 1234. Cisco CallManager and Cisco Unity drop out of the loop, and the call is connected directly from the Cisco gateway to extension 1234.

If the line is busy or unanswered, Cisco CallManager gives that information to Cisco Unity, and Cisco Unity does the operation that the subscriber has specified; for example, it takes a message.

 
Release transfers
(or blind transfers)

Cisco Unity passes the call to Cisco CallManager, and Cisco CallManager sends the call to extension 1234 without waiting to determine if the line is available. Then Cisco CallManager and Cisco Unity drop out of the loop. If Cisco Unity is set up to do release transfers, and if you want Cisco Unity to take a message when a line is busy or unanswered, you must configure each phone to forward calls to Cisco Unity when the line is busy or unanswered.


Integration Features

The Cisco CallManager integration with Cisco Unity provides the following features:

Call forward to personal greeting

When an incoming call is routed to an unanswered extension, the call is forwarded to the voice mail of the subscriber. The caller then hears the personal greeting of the subscriber and can leave a message.

Call forward to busy greeting

When an incoming call is routed to a busy extension, the call is forwarded to the voice mail of the subscriber. The caller then hears the busy greeting (if the subscriber enabled it) and can leave a message.

Caller ID

Cisco Unity receives caller ID information from the phone system (if available). This information appears in the subject line of the message in the desktop messaging application.

Easy message access

A subscriber can retrieve messages without entering an ID. Cisco Unity identifies a subscriber based on the extension from which the call originated. A password may be required.

Identified subscriber messaging

Cisco Unity automatically identifies a subscriber who leaves a message during a forwarded internal call, based on the extension from which the call originated.

Message waiting indication

When a message is waiting for a subscriber, Cisco Unity notifies Cisco CallManager to activate the message waiting indicator (MWI) on the subscriber extension.


Planning How the Voice Messaging Ports Will Be Used by Cisco Unity

Before programming the phone system, you need to plan how the voice messaging ports will be used by Cisco Unity. The following considerations will affect the programming for the phone system (for example, setting up the hunt group or call forwarding for the voice messaging ports):

The number of voice messaging ports installed.

The number of voice messaging ports that will answer calls.

The number of voice messaging ports that will only dial out, for example, to send message notification, to set message waiting indicators (MWIs), to make AMIS deliveries, and to make telephone record and playback (TRAP) connections.

The number of voice messaging ports that will be dedicated to set MWIs if Cisco Unity is connected to multiple clusters of Cisco CallManager and if the Cisco CallManager server has dedicated MWI voice messaging ports.

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports to Install

The number of voice messaging ports to install depends on numerous factors, including:

The number of calls Cisco Unity will answer when call traffic is at its peak.

The expected length of each message that callers will record and that subscribers will listen to.

The number of subscribers.

The number of ports that will be set to dial out only.

The number of calls made for message notification.

The number of MWIs that will be activated when call traffic is at its peak.

The number of AMIS delivery calls.

The number of Media Master connections needed when call traffic is at its peak. (Media Master connections are used by Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients to play back and record over the phone.)

It is best to install only the number of voice messaging ports that are needed so that system resources are not allocated to unused ports.

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Answer Calls

The calls that the voice messaging ports answer can be incoming calls from unidentified callers or from subscribers. Typically, these voice messaging ports are the busiest. They also have the lowest port numbers for the phone system. As a general guideline, assign approximately 75 percent of the voice messaging ports to answer calls.

You can set voice messaging ports to both answer calls and to dial out (for example, to set MWIs).

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Only Dial Out, and Not Answer Calls

Ports that will only dial out and will not answer calls can do one or more of the following:

Notify subscribers by phone, pager, or e-mail of messages that have arrived.

Turn MWIs on and off for subscriber extensions.

Make outbound AMIS calls to deliver voice messages from Cisco Unity subscribers to users on another voice messaging system. (This action is available only with the AMIS licensed feature.)

Make a Media Master connection so that subscribers can use the phone as a recording and playback device in Cisco Unity web applications and e-mail clients.

Typically, these voice messaging ports are the least busy ports. They also have the highest port numbers for the phone system. As a general guideline, assign approximately 25 percent of the voice messaging ports to dial out.


Caution In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco Unity that cannot answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example, if a voice messaging port is set only to Dialout MWI, do not send calls to it.

The Number of Voice Messaging Ports That Will Be Dedicated to Activating MWIs on Other Cisco CallManager Clusters

If Cisco Unity services multiple clusters of Cisco CallManager, there must be at least one voice messaging port per cluster dedicated for turning MWIs on and off for each cluster. For example, if the system has four clusters, at least four ports on Cisco Unity must be dedicated to activating MWIs, one port for each cluster.

Preparing for Programming the Phone System

Record your decisions about the voice messaging ports to guide you in programming the phone system.

Step 7 If you will use the Cisco Unity Bridge or AMIS to connect Cisco CallManager and Cisco Unity to a supported third-party voice messaging system, confirm that this parameter is set to 100.

Step 8 If you changed any settings, click Update. Then shut down and restart the Cisco CallManager server.


If you want to remap extension numbers (for example, when multiple subscribers use a single phone, or when multiple extension numbers on a single phone should go to a single subscriber greeting), see the "Appendix: Remapping Extension Numbers" section.

Setting Up the Gateways That Service Cisco Unity

In certain situations, DTMF digits are not recognized when processed through VoIP dial-peer gateways. To avoid this problem, certain gateways must be configured to enable DTMF relay. The DTMF relay feature is available in Cisco IOS software version 12.0(5) and later.

Cisco IOS software-based gateways that use H.245 out-of-band signaling must be configured to enable DTMF relay.

Enable dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric on this dial-peer.

The Catalyst 6000 T1/PRI and FXS gateways enable DTMF relay by default and do not need additional configuration to enable this feature.

To Enable DTMF Relay


Step 1 On a VoIP dial-peer servicing Cisco Unity, use the following command:

dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric

Step 2 Create a destination pattern that matches the Cisco CallManager voice mail port numbers. For example, if the system has voice mail ports 1001 through 1016, enter the dial-peer destination pattern 10xx.

Step 3 Repeat Step 1 and Step 2 for all remaining VoIP dial-peers servicing Cisco Unity.

Configuring Cisco Unity for the Integration

After ensuring that the Cisco Unity server is ready for the integration by completing the applicable tasks in the Cisco Unity Installation Guide, do the following procedures to confirm that the integration is enabled and to enter the port settings.

To Confirm That the Integration Is Enabled


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, go to the Cisco Unity Administrator by doing one of the following:

In Internet Explorer, go to http://<server name>/web/sa.

Double-click the desktop shortcut to the Cisco Unity Administrator.

Step 2 Go to the System > Licensing > Licensed Features page.

Step 3 In the Integration field, confirm that the setting is TAPI for a single phone system integration or Multiple Integrations for a dual phone system integration.

Step 4 If the setting is not TAPI or Multiple Integrations, contact your sales representative for the necessary system key.

Step 5 Go to the System > IP Switch page. Confirm that the settings match those in Table 13. If the settings are incorrect, integration features may not be enabled.

Table 13 Switch Settings 

Switch Parameter
Required Setting

Manufacturer

Cisco

Model

CallManager

Switch PBX Software Version

3.01 or later

Integration

TAPI


Step 6 Click the Save icon.

Step 7 Close the Cisco Unity Administrator.

Step 8 For the phone system settings to take effect, exit the Cisco Unity software, then restart the server.


To Enter Port Settings


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the System > Ports page.

Step 2 Select a port in the table.

Step 3 Indicate the settings for the port.

For the voice messaging ports assigned to a given Cisco CallManager cluster, use the first voice messaging ports for incoming calls and the last ports to dial out. This helps minimize the possibility of a collision, in which an incoming call arrives on a port at the same time that Cisco Unity takes the port off-hook to dial out. Set the ports assigned to each Cisco CallManager cluster in this manner.


Caution In programming the phone system, do not send calls to voice messaging ports in Cisco Unity that cannot answer calls (voice messaging ports that are not set to Answer Calls). For example, if a voice messaging port is set only to Dialout MWI, do not send calls to it.

Step 4 Repeat Step 2 and Step 3 for the remaining ports.

Step 5 Click the Save icon.

Step 6 For the settings to take effect, exit and restart the Cisco Unity software.


Testing the Integration

To test whether Cisco Unity and the phone system are integrated correctly, do the procedures in the order listed.

Step 3 When you hear the opening greeting, enter the extension for Phone 1. Hearing the opening greeting means that the port is configured correctly.

Step 4 Confirm that Phone 1 rings and that you hear a ringback tone on Phone 2. Hearing a ringback tone means that Cisco Unity released the call and transferred it to Phone 1.

Step 5 Leaving Phone 1 unanswered, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that release transfer is successful.

Step 6 Confirm that, after the number of rings that the phone system is set to wait, the call is forwarded to Cisco Unity and that you hear the greeting for Example Subscriber. Hearing the greeting means that the phone system forwarded the unanswered call and the call-forward information to Cisco Unity, which correctly interpreted the information.

Step 7 On the Status Monitor, note the port that handles this call.

Step 8 Leave a message for Example Subscriber and hang up Phone 2.

Step 9 On the Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.

Step 10 Confirm that the MWI on Phone 1 is activated. The activated MWI means that the phone system and Cisco Unity are successfully integrated for turning on MWIs.


To Test an Internal Call with Release Transfer


Step 1 From Phone 1, enter the internal pilot number for Cisco Unity.

Step 2 When asked for your password, enter 12345. Hearing the request for your password means that the phone system sent the necessary call information to Cisco Unity, which correctly interpreted the information.

Step 3 Confirm that you hear the recorded voice name for Example Subscriber. Hearing the voice name means that Cisco Unity correctly identified the subscriber by the extension.

Step 4 When asked whether you want to listen to your messages, press 1.

Step 5 After listening to the message, press 3 to delete the message.

Step 6 Confirm that the MWI on Phone 1 is deactivated. The deactivated MWI means that the phone system and Cisco Unity are successfully integrated for turning off MWIs.

Step 7 Hang up Phone 1.

Step 8 On the Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.

Step 4 Click the Save icon.


To Test Supervised Transfer


Step 1 From Phone 2, enter the access code necessary to get an outside line, then enter the number outside callers use to dial directly to Cisco Unity.

Step 2 On the Status Monitor, note the port that handles this call.

Step 3 When you hear the opening greeting, enter the extension for Phone 1. Hearing the opening greeting means that the port is configured correctly.

Step 4 Confirm that Phone 1 rings and that you do not hear a ringback tone on Phone 2. Instead, you should hear the indication your phone system uses to mean that the call is on hold (for example, music or beeps).

Step 5 Leaving Phone 1 unanswered, confirm that the state of the port handling the call remains "Busy." This state and hearing an indication that you are on hold mean that Cisco Unity is supervising the transfer.

Step 6 Confirm that, after three rings, you hear the greeting for Example Subscriber. Hearing the greeting means that Cisco Unity successfully recalled the supervised-transfer call.

Step 7 During the greeting, hang up Phone 2.

Step 8 On the Status Monitor, confirm that the state of the port handling the call changes to "Idle." This state means that the port was successfully released when the call ended.

Requirements

The dual phone system integration supports configurations of the following components:

A Cisco Unity system key with the integration type set to "Multiple integrations" and with the applicable number of voice messaging ports enabled.

The Cisco Unity server set up and Cisco Unity 3.0(x) installed, as described in the Cisco Unity Installation Guide.

A circuit-switched phone system installed and integrated with Cisco Unity. For details, refer to the applicable Cisco Unity integration guide, located at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/prod_configuration_guides_list.html. The circuit-switched phone system (including the voice card software used in the integration) must be installed and integrated with Cisco Unity before Cisco CallManager is integrated.

A supported version of Cisco CallManager and the Cisco Unity-CM service provider (TSP) installed and configured. For information about integrating Cisco Unity with Cisco CallManager and the Cisco Unity-CM service provider, see the "Integration Overview" section.

Changing Cisco Unity Administrator Settings

After Cisco Unity is installed and the phone systems have been separately integrated, you need to adjust settings on pages in the Cisco Unity Administrator so that Cisco Unity can work with both phone systems.

Follow these steps to set up the dual phone system integration.

1. Specify settings for the circuit-switched phone system on the System > Switch > Switch page. For details, see the "To Specify Switch Settings for the Circuit-Switched Phone System" procedure.


Caution Specify settings for the circuit-switched phone system before specifying settings for Cisco CallManager. You must proceed in this order, or the integration may not work.

2. Specify settings for Cisco CallManager on the IP Switch page. For details, see the "To Specify Switch Settings for Cisco CallManager" procedure.

3. On the Ports page, assign port ranges to the circuit-switched phone system first, then to CallManager, and adjust settings for the ports assigned to each phone system. For details, see the "To Modify Voice Port Settings" procedure.

4. Select the phone system that subscribers and call handlers use. For details, see the "To Select Which Phone System Subscribers and Call Handlers Use" procedure.

5. Select the phone system that Cisco Unity uses when dialing out to send message notifications. For details, see the "To Select Which Phone System Cisco Unity Uses for Message Notification" procedure.


Caution If you need to add or remove voice cards or uninstall the voice card software after the dual phone system integration is set up, you must also reinstall the TSP (Cisco Unity-CM service provider). Do not reinstall the TSP until after you have set up the voice cards or reinstalled the voice card software. For more information, see the "Changing the Number of Installed Ports" section.

To Specify Switch Settings for the Circuit-Switched Phone System


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the System > Switch > Switch page. The settings for the circuit-switched phone system selected during the Cisco Unity Setup program appear.

Step 2 In the Access Code field, enter the trunk access code that Cisco Unity must dial to transfer calls to Cisco CallManager from the circuit-switched phone system.

The access code is the same number that subscribers on the circuit-switched phone system dial to reach someone on the Cisco CallManager system.

Step 3 Adjust other settings as applicable. For more information about the other settings on the Switch page, refer to Cisco Unity Administrator Help.

Step 4 Click the Save icon, then click OK in the Warning dialog box.


To Specify Switch Settings for Cisco CallManager


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the System > Switch > IP Switch page.

Step 2 In the Set Active Switch Type section, enter values as shown in Table 16.

Table 16 Switch Settings 

Switch Parameter
Required Setting

Manufacturer

TAPI


Step 3 Click Set As Active, then click OK in the Warning dialog box.

Step 4 In the Access Code field, enter the trunk access code that Cisco Unity must dial to transfer calls to the circuit-switched phone system from Cisco CallManager.

The access code is the same number that subscribers on Cisco CallManager dial to reach someone on the circuit-switched phone system.

Step 5 Click the Save icon, then click OK in the Warning dialog box.


To Modify Voice Port Settings


Step 1 In the Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the System > Ports page.

Step 2 In the Port Assignments section, indicate the range of ports to be assigned to the circuit-switched phone system. The port range for the circuit-switched phone system begins with 1 and extends to no more than the number of ports that are on the installed voice cards. Do not assign more ports to the circuit-switched phone system than the number of ports on the voice cards.


Caution If you assign fewer voice ports to the circuit-switched phone system than are available on the installed voice cards, you must edit the registry for this port range to take effect. Otherwise, all available voice ports on the voice cards are used in the integration regardless of the Port Assignments settings. For information on editing the registry for the port range, see the "Appendix: Assigning Dialogic Ports for a Dual Phone System Integration" section.

Step 3 In the Port Assignments section, indicate the range of ports to be assigned to Cisco CallManager. The port range must begin with the next port after the last port for the circuit-switched phone system. The range for Cisco CallManager must end with the port number of the last port displayed on the Ports page, or the number of licensed voice ports on the system key, whichever is lower. In other words, the number of ports available for Cisco CallManager is the difference between the number of licensed voice ports on the system key and the number of ports assigned to the circuit-switched phone system.

Step 4 Enter an extension for each port.

Step 5 Specify other settings as applicable. For each phone system, confirm that an appropriate number of ports are used to answer calls and to dial out for message waiting indicators (MWIs), message notifications, and Media Master recordings by phone.

Step 6 Click the Save icon.


Caution The port range for each phone system must be set as specified in Step 2 and Step 3 above. If there is a port range mismatch, Cisco Unity will be unable to answer incoming calls and to dial out.

To Select Which Phone System Subscribers and Call Handlers Use

For existing subscriber templates, subscriber accounts, and call handlers, Cisco Unity uses the circuit-switched phone system as its default. Therefore, during the initial setup of the dual phone integration, you will modify only those pages that will be using Cisco CallManager. Note that changes made to subscriber templates do not affect existing subscriber accounts.


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the applicable page:

Subscribers > Subscriber Template > Profile

Subscribers > Subscribers > Profile

Call Management > Call Handlers > Profile

Step 2 In the Switch list, select the applicable phone system.

Step 3 Adjust other settings as applicable. For more information, refer to Cisco Unity Administrator Help.


Caution If the Switch setting on the Profile page for the subscriber or call handler does not match the phone system actually used by a subscriber or call handler, Cisco Unity will not be able to transfer calls to or from the subscriber or call handler. Additionally, Cisco Unity will be unable to turn the MWIs for the subscriber on or off and will be unable to reach the extension for the subscriber when recording by phone with Media Master.

To Select Which Phone System Cisco Unity Uses for Message Notification

If subscribers use message notification, you can select which phone system Cisco Unity dials out on when notifying subscribers of new messages. Note that changes made to subscriber templates do not affect existing subscribers.


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Administrator, go to the applicable page:

Subscribers > Subscriber Template > Message Notification

Subscribers > Message Notification

Step 2 For each device, in the Switch list select the phone system that Cisco Unity uses to dial out when notifying subscribers of new messages. Each notification device can be associated with a specific phone system (except for text pagers).

Cisco Unity uses as the default the phone system specified on the Profile page of the subscriber template.

Step 3 Adjust other settings as applicable. For more information, refer to Cisco Unity Administrator Help.


Caution The selected phone system must have at least one port set to dial out for message notifications on the System > Ports page. If the selected phone system does not have any ports set for this function, notifications will fail.

Changing the Number of Installed Ports

After the dual phone system integration is set up, if you need to add or remove voice cards or uninstall voice card software, follow these steps:

1. Remove the existing TSP. For details, see the "To Remove the Existing TSP" procedure.

2. As applicable, remove or add voice cards, or uninstall and reinstall the voice card software. For information about removing Dialogic voice card software, refer to the appendix about voice cards in the Cisco Unity Installation Guide.

3. Reinstall the TSP after you have set up the voice cards or reinstalled the voice card software. For details, see the "To Reinstall the TSP" procedure.

4. Adjust the port assignments on the System > Ports page. The voice messaging ports must appear in this order in the list of ports: first are all of the ports connected to the circuit-switched phone system, second are the ports connected to CallManager.

If you completely remove the circuit-switched phone system, you must adjust the port assignments for Cisco CallManager on the System > Ports page, after the voice cards and voice card software used in the integration with the circuit-switched phone system have been removed.

Step 10 Restart the Cisco Unity server.



Appendix: Remapping Extension Numbers


About the Remapping Feature

The extension remapping feature lets you convert to the extensions of your choice the calling numbers and forwarding numbers of calls handled by Cisco Unity. This feature is useful, for example, when the phone system cannot map multiple extension numbers on a subscriber phone to a single Inbox.

Remapping can change one or both of the following extension numbers in a call:

Calling number (the number from which a call originates). For example, Cisco Unity changes the calling number of calls so that the caller ID appears to be a different extension than the one that actually placed the call.

Forwarding number (the number that a call is going to). For example, unanswered calls to all line extensions on a single phone can be forwarded to the Inbox of a single subscriber; or unanswered calls to phones not assigned to subscribers can be forwarded to the Inbox of a supervisor.

Setting Up Cisco Unity to Remap Extension Numbers

This section includes a procedure for enabling the remapping feature. You can create multiple files in either or both of two directories:

In the Calling directory, one or more .exm files remap caller ID numbers.

In the Forwarding directory, one or more .exm files remap numbers that Cisco Unity provides with calls it forwards.

When you create remapping instructions in a .exm file in a directory, Cisco Unity remaps only the type of extension number that the directory is named for. For example, if you want to remap only the extensions that Cisco Unity provides with calls it forwards, you enter the instructions in a .exm file in the Forwarding directory; in this circumstance, the Calling directory needs no .exm file.

In each directory, you can have several .exm files with different file names but with the same .exm extension. This helps you to organize the remapping information. For example, you could create two files in a directory: Ports_1-12.exm and Ports_13-24.exm. Cisco Unity reads all files that have the .exm extension in these directories.

To Remap Extension Numbers


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, browse to the CommServer\IntLib\ExtensionMapping directory. In this directory is the file Sample.txt and two more directories: Calling and Forwarding.

Step 2 To remap calling numbers, go to the Calling directory.

Step 3 In a text editor application, create a new .exm file, or open a currently existing .exm file.

For an example, open the file Sample.txt in the CommServer\IntLib\ExtensionMapping directory.

Step 4 Enter [Range] and press Return to create a section for indicating which voice messaging ports will be monitored for remapping calls.

A .exm file can have only one [Range] section.

Step 5 Enter ports= followed by the numbers of the voice messaging ports, separated by commas. Ranges are designated by a hyphen (-) without spaces. To monitor all voice messaging ports, enter ports=* on this line. Then press Return.

For example, you might enter:

ports=1,2,5-34

Step 6 To create a section for the remapping rules, press Return, enter [Number Mappings], and then press Return.

A .exm file can have only one [Number Mappings] section.

Step 7 Enter one remapping rule on the line, and then press Return.

See the remapping rule examples in the following "Syntax and Examples" section. The rule format is:

<original number>, <new number>

The rules cannot include spaces between digits. However, the numbers must be separated by a comma and a single space. Wildcard characters cannot appear at the beginning of a number.

Step 8 For all remaining rules, repeat Step 7.

Step 9 Save and close the .exm file.

Step 10 To remap forwarding numbers, browse to the directory CommServer\IntLib\ExtensionMapping\Forwarding.

Step 11 Repeat Step 3 through Step 9 to remap forwarding numbers.

Step 12 For extension remapping to take effect, restart the Cisco Unity software.


Syntax and Examples

Table 17 shows the wildcard characters you can use in the .exm files.

Table 17 Wildcard Characters

Matches exactly one digit. Use ? as a placeholder for a single digit.


Table 18 gives examples for the syntax and results of rules in the .exm files.

Cisco Unity executes rules in the order they appear in the .exm file. For example, the .exm file might contain the following rules:

1234, 1189
3189, 1189
4189, 1189
123?, 8891

The extension 1234 would be remapped to 1189 while extensions 1233 and 1235 would be remapped to 8891, because the rule mapping 1234 appears earlier.

An .exm file might contain the following:

[Range]
ports=1,2,5-34

[Number Mappings]
2189, 1189
3189, 1189
4189, 1189
8???, 9???


Appendix: Assigning Dialogic Ports for a Dual Phone System Integration


In a dual phone system integration, Cisco Unity assigns a voice messaging port to the traditional, circuit-switched phone system for every port available on the installed voice cards before assigning voice messaging ports to Cisco CallManager. The result is that Cisco Unity may not have enough voice messaging ports remaining to assign to Cisco CallManager.

The maximum number of voice messaging ports are assigned to the circuit-switched phone system regardless of the settings on the Ports page in the System Administrator.

For example, a dual phone system integration might have the following configuration:

A circuit-switched phone system has a four-port voice card installed.

Cisco CallManager has six Voice Mail ports set up.

The Cisco Unity server has a system key enabled for a total of eight ports.

The Ports page on System Administrator indicates that Ports 1 and 2 are assigned to the circuit-switched phone system and Ports 3 through 8 are assigned to Cisco CallManager.

Even so, Ports 1 through 4 (the total voice card ports) will be assigned to the circuit-switched phone system, and Ports 5 through 6 will be assigned to Cisco CallManager.

If you want to assign fewer than the total number of voice card ports to the circuit-switched phone system, you must first set the Port assignments on the Ports page of the System Administrator, then do the following procedure.

To Set the Port Assignments in the Registry


Step 1 On the Cisco Unity server, on the Windows Start menu, click Run.

Step 2 In the Open field, enter Regedit and press Enter. The Registry Editor appears.


Caution Changing the wrong registry key or entering an incorrect value can cause the server to malfunction. Before you edit the registry, confirm that you know how to restore it if a problem occurs. (Refer to the "Restoring" topics in Registry Editor Help.) Note that a typical backup of the Cisco Unity server does not back up the registry. Also note that for a Cisco Unity failover system, registry changes on one Cisco Unity server must be made manually on the other Cisco Unity server, because registry changes are not replicated. If you have any questions about changing registry key settings, contact Cisco TAC.

Step 3 If you do not have a current backup of the registry, click Registry > Export Registry File, and save the registry settings to a file.

Step 4 Expand the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ActiveVoice\MIU\1.0\Initialization\ServiceProvider <x>, where <x> is a number.

You will find several subkeys with this name.

Step 5 Locate the subkey in which the value Service Provider Name is D41MT.TSP.

Step 6 In this subkey, in the Edit menu click New > DWORD Value. A new value appears in the subkey.

Step 7 Enter the name DeviceID Lower Bound and press Enter.

Step 8 Double-click the DeviceID Lower Bound value. The Edit DWORD Value dialog box appears.

Step 9 In the Value Data field, enter 1 and click OK.

Step 10 in the Edit menu click New > DWORD Value. A new value appears in the subkey.

Step 11 Enter the name DeviceID Upper Bound and press Enter.

Step 12 Double-click the DeviceID Upper Bound value. The Edit DWORD Value dialog box appears.

Step 13 In the Value Data field, enter the number of Dialogic ports you want to assign and click OK.

Step 14 Close the Registry Editor.

Step 15 For the settings to take effect, exit and restart the Cisco Unity software.
