Guide for New CME 8.6 Install?

Postby Guest » Mon Apr 11, 2005 2:46 pm

Im trying to get to CME 8.6 on a brand-spankin-new 3945E.

The Install Guide is rather vague on how exactly to install CME of any version.  I would normally load the cme-basic-x.x.x.tar file to the router and be on my way.  However, 8.5 and 8.6 do not have this file on the software downloads site I think 8.0 is the latest to have it.  If you download the .zip file and extract the contents, its still not there.

Is the procedure to go 8.0 -> 8.6?  If so, what is the upgrade process?

Is there a direct install method?

Am I totally missing a basic concept here?

Thanks in advance...

 

 

 

Heres the directory thats extracted from the .zip:

Hi Nick

 

To be perfectly honest, you don actually need to load anything on the CME router to get things up and working.

 

CME is actually built into the IOS image, however you will have had to order the correct sofware package as you e running on a 3945E to be licensed to use it. 3945E will actually check that you e licensed when you start to define stuff.

 

If you just do a "telephony-service setup" command this just take you through the CLI set up wizard.

 

The files in your ZIP file are:

 

GUI files for CME (which personally I don use as historically Ive found it beyond buggy).

Firmware files for all the different phone types. These can be downloaded and installed invidually, as generally installations don use each of the different phone types that Cisco produces.

Miscellanous files such as the MOH and Ring tone files.

 

In a nutshell, to get CME up and working, you don need any of the above.

 

As a replacement to the CME GUI, you could also have a look at Cisco Configuration Assistant (CCA) which is available as a free download on CCO. IMHO its much better than the old CME GUI anyway.

 

Hope this helps. Barry

Thanks, Barry.  You are 100% correct.

 

I have historically loaded the IOS, then installed the cme-basic tar for the version I wanted.  Apparently, that task is now deprecated and the files are all included w/IOS when you load the proper version.

 

Cheers,
