These two new labs both contain video-based solutions, which walk you — task-by-task — through every step of the necessary configuration, along with plenty of live troubleshooting, just as we should expect when sitting for the actual CCIE Voice Lab exam.
For the first two labs alone, we have recorded over forty hours of video-based solutions.
We are in the process completely of re-writing every lab in the Voice Volume II Workbook, and will be releasing them and posting announcements here about each new lab as they are completed. We will also be releasing new CCIE Voice Deep Dives here shortly. So stay tuned for much, much more from INE’s Voice program.
In our series on CCIE Voice Troubleshooting and issues you may encounter during your lab exam, we last looked at problems with European MGCP GWs and Mobile Connect, and today we would like to continue that series by exploring the issues that you might run into in a number of situations related to logins to the Cisco Unified Contact Center Express product.
Perhaps one day you go to login to the UCCX Administration page, and you find that the user that either you, or someone else setup -initially in CUCM and told UCCX to use as it’s administrative login- no longer works properly. You try and reset the password in CUCM (or possibly in Active Directory), and then try to login to the UCCX Administration page again, but alas, still no luck to be had. This issue could present itself in a number of situations, perhaps in self-study, during the actual lab exam, or very possibly even in a real-life scenario.
This video from our brand new Volume II lab video solutions will walk you through both the problem and quick solution to get you back into your UCCX, and able to re-link either the existing/should-work administrative user, or choose a new user for all future admin logins.
The Cisco Unified Communications feature called Mobile Connect (also familiarly referred to as Single Number Reach) is truly a great feature of Unified Communications Manager, and can provide us with many efficiencies both in being able to be reachable just about anywhere, and in being able to be easily identified when placing inbound calls from our mobile phones into the CUCM cluster to our colleagues. As admins, we know that if we wish to have our users place calls from their mobile phones inbound to their colleagues inside the CUCM cluster, that we need to match up all or at least part of their inbound calling party number (CLID) to their CUCM Remote Destination. But what happens when what the carrier is sending CLID digits inbound to our IOS voice gateways that differs significantly from our Remote Destinations in CUCM, especially if we have truly embraced Cisco’s push toward true Globalization in v7.0, v8.0 & v8.5?
