CCNA Collaboration – Notes, Chapter 4

CICD – Ch4 – CME Administration


  • CCNA Covers configuring CME using CCP (Cisco Configuration Professional)
    • I will include screenshots of the GUI and also show the command line that gets generated
    • CME can also be configured by using it’s own GUI
      • HTML and java based
      • Loaded onto flash with a .tar file
      • Allows add/change of phones, modifying dial plan, configuring hunt groups, etc.
  • CCP configures all major aspects of CME
    • CCP can also be used for LAN, WAN and security features
  • CCP must discover devices before it can configure them
    • Discovery includes finding out information about the hardware, software, interfaces and modules
