Hello ladies & gents,
I was looking over the CCIE Collab v2 device list and in terms of routers / voice gateways, I mainly saw the CSR1000v being mentioned.
I'm curious, does anybody know what it takes to get SRST running on a CSR1000v?
So far I've tried the csr1000v-universalk9.16.08.01a image along with the 16.07.01 image but none of them have the "voice register global" command in global configuration mode.
I've been looking at this presentation http://clnv.s3.amazonaws.com/2017/eur/pdf/BRKCOL-2125.pdf and it would seem that CME and SRST support would have been introduced as of IOS-XE 16.3.1 but it doesn't seem to be the case here.
I'm really curious if anybody has got this working.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Cisco have missed this surely. I share your concerns. How do we run SRST if no hardware is needed for Lab exam???!!! How do we run CME without a physical router?! Is it assumed we use GNS3/UNET? (even then we can't run v12!!!)
This is from the latest CCIE Collab V2 guide:
Cisco IP Phones
Cisco Unified IP Phone 8845 (Remote Controlled)
Core Collaboration Applications
Cisco Unified Communications Manager 12.0
Cisco Unified IM & Presence 12.0
Cisco Unity Connection 12.0
Cisco Unified Contact Center Express 11.6
Cisco Meeting Server 2.x
Cisco Expressway Series 8.10
CSR1000v: IOS XE 16.3
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express 12.0
Cisco Unity Express Virtual 9.0
IOU/IOL L3 15.5 runs SRST and CME like a boss so if you're using any emulation environment, that will do the trick. I'm pretty sure Cisco will have a custom version of CSRv that can / will do the same.
CME ran fine in GNS3 since IOS 12.X
Not sure why the constant worrying. Just grab 15.5 (IOL/IOU) and you'll be able to do CME and SRST (SIP and SCCP) just fine for training.
Whatever Cisco decide to do for the CCIE lab, that's up to them. Master the concept, lab it up, know how to diagnose and troubleshoot and you're done.
