The Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC) Express Maintenance and Recovery Guide is written for employees who maintain and troubleshoot the Cisco IPCC Express solution, specifically these people:
Contact Center Supervisors
Cisco Systems Account Team
This document provides a useful guide to maintain and troubleshoot the components that make up the IPCC Express solution at your contact center. This document guides you to a solution directly, or you can contact Cisco Technical Support. This document helps you remove some potential issues and enables you to supply Technical Support with detailed and useful information.
Note: This document does not cover:
How to diagnose problems, errors, or issues in a Cisco component that do not affect an IPCC Express termination point
How to diagnose problems, errors, or issues with non-Cisco components, except to rule out an impact caused by a Cisco component
Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:
Cisco standard architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data (AVVID) network design and implementation
Cisco CallManager, Customer Response Solutions (CRS), and Unity system administration
Cisco IOS®, Catalyst Software, Firmware, and other software modules
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
CRS 3.x and 4.0.x
Cisco CallManager 3.2.x, 3.3.x, and 4.0.x
The information presented in this document was created from devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If you are working in a live network, ensure that you understand the potential impact of any command before using it.

|Equipment||Model||Backup Strategy||Frequency||Backup/Restore Procedures|
|Cisco CallManager||Server||Daily or as required by local IT policies||Backing up & Restoring Cisco CallManager Release 3.3 (Using Cisco IP Telephony Applications Backup Utility, Version 3.5.6)|
|CRS||Server||Use the Cisco IP Telephony Applications Server Backup Utility to backup Cisco Customer Response Application data||Daily or as required by local IT policies||Backing up & Restoring Cisco CallManager Release 3.3 (Using Cisco IP Telephony Applications Backup Utility, Version 3.5.6)|
Note: Make sure that you do not install any third party backup solutions that are not supported by Cisco on the Cisco CRS and the Cisco CallManager servers. You can check the Cisco CallManager Software Version Comparison for a list of supported applications. Anything not on the list is not supported and should never be installed.
