The following sections provide an overview of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CM) and the Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack:

What is Cisco Unified Communications Manager?

Cisco Unified Communications Manager, also known as CallManager, is a unified call control and communications platform that provides services such as session management, voice, video, messaging, mobility, and web conferencing. Multiple CallManager servers can be grouped together into a cluster, which enables the CallManagers to share resources and features for better system scalability.

What Does the Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack Monitor?

To monitor Cisco Unified CM using SL1, you must install the Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack. This PowerPack enables you to discover, model, and collect data about your Cisco Unified CM system and clusters.

The Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack includes:

The Run Book Action that assigns the root device disables the Cisco Unified CM cluster root device's Auto-Update option.

Supported Versions

You can use this PowerPack to configure versions 8.x, 9.x, 10.x, 11.x, and 12.x of Cisco Unified CM.

Installing the Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack

Before completing the steps in this section, you must import and install the latest version of the Cisco: CUCM Unified Communications Manager PowerPack.

By default, installing a new version of a PowerPack overwrites all content from a previous version of that PowerPack that has already been installed on the target system. You can use the Enable Selective PowerPack Field Protection setting in the Behavior Settings page (System > Settings > Behavior) to prevent new PowerPacks from overwriting local changes for some commonly customized fields. (For more information, see the section on Global Settings.)

  1. Go to the PowerPack Manager page (System > Manage > PowerPacks).
