I have been looking for the following information on Cisco.com but with no luck. I hope the community here will be able to assist me.
We are in the process of setting up a fresh CUCM 11.5 cluster for a client. We want to utilize DNS servers, and during the installation, enter the hostname using FQDN (e.g. cucm1.xyz.com) so that we may not run issues with other application integration later on. During the CUCM installation, we are also required to enter the domain(e.g. xyz.com).
I am looking for clarification on the following:
1 -During the installation, are we able to add a hostname using the complete name with fqdn (e.g cucm1.xyz.com, I read a post where they mentioned they couldn't add it )?
2 - During installation,if we were to enter the hostname as cucm1.xyz.com and then later on in the following steps add the domain as xyz.com, would the hostname under CUCM GUI --> System --> Server show as "cucm1.xyz.com" or "cucm1.xyz.com.xyz.com"?
Please point to any Cisco documentation that would help clarify this.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
And that's it ;)
Since we are only able to enter hostname without the FQDN, then under CUCM GUI -- System -- Servers it would only show the hostname.
What would need to be done to get it to show the full name with FQDN? I was hoping to get this done during the installation steps rather than going back and changing it after setting up the complete the cluster.
Slavik is correct (+5), I have been doing the same on all of my deployments in the last few years since FQND became the recommendation from Cisco.
