Installing Cisco Unified Attendant Console

Installing Cisco Unified Attendant Console

Installation of Attendant Console is quite easy and can be done within 30-45 minutes but configuring Attendant Console may take an hour if you don’t encounter any issues.

Before installation, please ensure the following:

  1. IIS is Installed on your Windows Server
  2. Your CUAC Server should not be installed on a Domain Controller
  3. Ensure your DNS is working (If you don’t have a DNS Server, you need to modify the Hosts file on the CUAC Server. Add an entry in the hosts file so that you can resolve your Server Hostname to an IP Address)

Creating Application User in Cisco Unified Communication Manager:

  • Login to Cisco Unified Communication Manager
  • Create a New Group as “CUAC” and assign all “CTI” roles to this group.
  • Create an Application User   (This will be used to communication with CUAC Server)
  • Assign the application user to CUAC and Standard CCM Super Users Groups
