Except the High Availability (HA) feature using Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Virtual application supports all the other features that are supported by Cisco Unified SIP Proxy on a SRE Module.
There are two approaches to select a server for running Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Software within a VMware ESXi environment.
A dialog box indicates when the deployment is complete.
Step 11 Select the VM instance, right click and choose Edit Settings....
Virtual Machine Properties dialog box appears.
Step 12 Click the Hardware tab and set the values for memory and vCPU as provided in Table 2.
Step 13 Click the Resources Tab and select CPU. Adjust the Reservation and Shares to the value provided in Table 2.
Note Select the Unlimited option if the call flow details and the expected call capacity expected are not clear (this option takes care of cases where the call load is more than the planned load and needs additional CPU resources).
Step 14 Select Memory and change the reservation value as mentioned in the Table 2.
Note Select the Unlimited option if the call flows details and expected call capacity expected are not clear (this option handles the cases where call load is more than the planned load and needs additional RAM).
Step 15 Save the settings and restart the VM.
Step 16 Select Resource Allocation and confirm the resource reservations.
Configuring the CUSP Software
When you open the first session, the system launches the post installation configuration tool, and asks you if you want to start configuration immediately.
Enter the appropriate response, y or n. If you enter n, the system will halt. If you enter y, the system will ask you to confirm, then begin the interactive post installation configuration process.
The following is an example:
IMPORTANT:: Welcome to Cisco Systems Service Engine
IMPORTANT:: post installation configuration tool.
IMPORTANT:: This is a one time process which will guide
IMPORTANT:: you through initial setup of your Service Engine.
IMPORTANT:: Once run, this process will have configured
IMPORTANT:: the system for your location.
IMPORTANT:: If you do not wish to continue, the system will be halted
IMPORTANT:: so it can be safely removed from the router.
Do you wish to start configuration now (y,n)? y
Are you sure (y,n)? y

Cisco Smart Software Licensing
Cisco Smart Software Licensing is a standardized licensing platform that facilitates you to deploy and manage Cisco software licenses easily and quickly. Cisco Smart Software Licensing establishes a pool of software licenses that can be used across your network in a flexible and automated manner. It also provides visibility to your purchased and deployed licenses in your network. Cisco Smart Software Licensing removes the need for Product Activation Keys (PAKs) and reduces your license activation and registration time.
You must have a valid account in Cisco Smart Manager to configure smart licensing for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy. By logging into your account in Cisco Smart Manager, you can generate token ID for Cisco Unified SIP Proxy. The generated token ID is unique to your account and it is mandatory to provide the generated token ID during license registration. The Cisco Unified SIP Proxy (Smart Agent) contacts the Cisco Smart Manager (Cisco Datacentre) using Call Home or HTTP protocol and configures the license. Smart licenses can be configured using either Graphical User Interface (GUI) or Command Line Interface (CLI).
Once the smart licensing is enabled and configured using GUI or CLI, the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy sends the entitlement tag, token ID and other required information to the Smart Agent and registers with the Smart Manager (cloud server). The registration is valid for a period of one year. If the registration fails, then Cisco Unified SIP Proxy moves to evaluation mode. In evaluation mode, all features are supported for 90 days. Cisco Unified SIP Proxy stops working after the evaluation period.
After successful registration, the license count and other necessary details are sent to the Smart Manager for authorization. If the authorization is successful, the Cisco Unified SIP Proxy is in authorized state. If the requested number of licenses is within the purchased license count, Licensing Agent state moves to InCompliance state. If the requested number of licenses is more than the purchased licenses, Licensing Agent state moves to OutofCompliance state. The calls are allowed in OutofCompliance mode for a period of 90 days.
The authorization is renewed automatically every 30 days without the intervention of the users. In case the authorization renewal fails for 90 days, Cisco Unified SIP Proxy moves to the authorization expiry state. In this state all the calls are rejected and smart agent retries to renew the authorization every four hours.
