Since Cisco has announced upcoming changes to CCIE Voice Lab Exam and Lab Exam Blueprint 3.0 has been published, Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0 has become focus of attention for many.
CUCM 7.x is not much different from 5.x and 6.x versions and can be installed natively in VMWare for lab purposes.Cisco has done a great deal in making CUCM 7.x installation totally hassle free.Its a no-brainer installation compared to Windows version of Call Manager e.g CCM 4.x versions.
One of great things with CUCM 7.x is that it comes with demo license of 150 DLU’s (Device Link Units) and 3 Node License Unit. This will really help CCIE voice candidates to brush up their skills with this new version.
This tutorial will cover post-installation steps to get CUCM 7.x up and running ! Furthermore, i will walk you through the process of registering Cisco IP devices to your CUCM 7.x. For registering 3rd party SIP phones e.g X-lite to CUCM 7.x , same steps are required as i showed in a previous tutorial.
