Insert EMCC Devices
Use BAT to add EMCC devices to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.
Each EMCC device bears a unique name in the format: EMCC1, EMCC2, and so on. BAT assigns EMCC device numbers by obtaining the last one used. If any other entity like, Phone, UDP, RDP, or EMCC Templates are named in the same format (EMCC1, EMCC2), then BAT Insert EMCC generates an error for duplicate naming. Therefore, ensure that the above entities with the same name format, are renamed before inserting EMCC Devices.
The Admin user wants to insert 27 numbers of EMCC devices. First, BAT searches for the last EMCC device serial number used in the UCM say, EMCC123. Then it starts inserting devices from the next number onwards: EMCC124 to EMCC150. If UDP devices have already used the following names: EMCC135, EMCC137, and EMCC150, then BAT Insert EMCC will generate a naming error. EMCC devices with the above names do not get created unless the UDP devices are renamed.
Before you begin
Before you insert EMCC devices, you must have a valid EMCC template set as default. Set the default template following the update EMCC devices procedure.
To determine how many EMCC devices to add, look at the number of registered phones and add 5% to account for devices that may not be registered at the moment. If you have 100 phones, multiply 100 by 0.5, which equals 5. You add the result (5) to the total (100). The number of EMCC devices is 105.
To display information about the number of registered phones, gateways, and media resource devices on Cisco Unified Communications Manager, open RTMT and choose Voice/Video > Device > Device Summary.
Make sure that the Insert EMCC Devices radio button is selected.
Enter the number of devices in the Number of EMCC Devices to be added field.
In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.

To insert the EMCC devices immediately, click the Run Immediately radio button. Click Run Later to insert the devices at a later time.
