Welcome

This Getting Started Guide will help you configure your Aastra 700 system once the Hardware is installed. You should collect all necessary customer specific information prior to beginning the setup. You will need five fixed IP addresses from the internal LAN and information about the telephony- numbering plan. To simplify the collection of data, a two-page form is available in the beginning of this document.

Your Aastra 700 server comes pre-installed with MX-ONE Telephony Server and Management Suite and the Aastra 700 applications. Completing the installation of Aastra 700 applications consists of the following steps, which are covered in this document:

1. Configure the network interface on the MGU

2. Set a password and an IP-address for the VMware Hypervisor

3. Install the VMware vSphere client on your PC

4. Finalize the Aastra 700 Telephony System and Manager Provisioning (MP) software installation and configuration on the SUSE Linux virtual machine

5. Finalize the Windows setup on the Application Server virtual machine

6. Run the Aastra 700 Configuration Utility to set up the network parameters for the Application server, the IP address of the Telephony Server virtual machine, and configure the customer specific information for CMG and Solidus eCare

7. Run the OneBox installation wizard

8. Using the Manager Provisioning Aastra 700 Wizard to set up the Telephony Server

9. Finalizing the configuration and backing up your system.

1.1 About Number Series

When it comes to defining the number plan, there are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Naming for the same number or number series may be different depending on the application you are configuring. See the site information pages to get details on these different names used by Telephony Server and the different applications.

2. DID numbers refer to the number series provided by the local service provider and are generally used to create extension numbers and common numbers like main number or Help desk numbers. As an example, if the service provider gives you a number series of 08 5686 7000-7300, we can see that the 08 is the area code and the 5686 is the public exchange number. The last 4 digits are what differ in the range, which is the DID number series used to differentiate between internal extensions (7000-7300). You would then create a 4 digit numbering plan, where 7000-7300 would be the internal number series.

3. You could then decide to reserve 7000 as your main external number. Then, assuming you have two attendant consoles, you would reserve 7001 and 7002 as attendant extension numbers. You would then use the remaining numbers for user extensions and service numbers (e.g. OneBox VM Hunt Group, CTI groups for Solidus, etc…).

3

4. If a company has 150 users, they would exclude the 3 numbers mentioned above and user extensions numbers would begin at 7003 to 7153, as defined by the “DID number series” in the Manager Provisioning (MP) wizard. These would be the range of numbers used by MP to create user extensions in Telephony Server and CMG as well as OneBox mailboxes. The rest of the numbers (7154-7300) can be used to say define help desk numbers, conference bridge numbers, service numbers, common area numbers, (conference rooms, reception areas, etc…), external access to Voice Mail services or auto-attendant services.

5. CMG on the other hand uses the term “extension range” which refers to the combination of 3 and 4 above, so it would expect the 7000-7300 be defined as the extension range, as will enable users and attendants to see and reach all numbers in this range from the CMG directory.

6. Things like Voice mail media ports for OneBox and IVR ports for OAS are kept outside of the DID number range and are internal SIP extension numbers with the same number length used by the system to register the media ports needed for these applications. The reason they are kept outside the DID number range is to avoid them being accessed directly from the outside.

7. Then there are internal service codes for dialing externally and reaching the attendant, which are usually 1 or 2 digit codes like 0 and 9 or 00 and 09 respectively. These are defined as common for all internal users in the system and applications. As an example, 00 would be dialed for accessing the outside public network and 09 for dialing internally to the operator (attendant). If a single digit approach is used, such a 0 and 9, then no other numbers can be used in the number plan with 0 or 9 as leading digits.

8. Then there is the international access code or prefix, used to inform the public exchange that you are dialing an international number. In Europe, this code is 00, whereas in North America it is 011. As an example, if you were dialing a number from Sweden to France (+33 1 4233 1234). The internal user would dial the public access code 0 and then the international prefix 00 then the country code for France (33) and finally the local number (1 4233 1234). So it would look like 0 00 33 1 4233 1234.

9. This covers the basics you need to know prior to beginning the configuration process. It is a good idea to fill in the information in the “Site specific data collection forms” located in chapter 3 of this guide prior to starting the configuration.

Aastra 700 system overview

2 Aastra 700 system overview The picture above shows the principal architecture of the Aastra 700

The picture above shows the principal architecture of the Aastra 700 system. All software is based on the MX-ONE product portfolio, but it has been consolidated into one physical server. The system is running on a single ASU-E server board, utilizing VMware ESX 4.0 to be able to share the hardware between the Telephony Server (Linux based) and the Application server (Windows based). The gateway functions required by the telephony system are taken care of by the Media Gateway Unit (MGU) inside the 3U box.

Some notes about networks, virtual machines and Aastra 700 Inside the VMware hypervisor, there is a virtual network environment that connects all the virtual machines together with each other and with the physical Ethernet port on the ASU-E. A virtual switch inside the hypervisor handles the network traffic between the virtual machines and the outside. It also provides a link aggregation (bonding) feature as standard, giving the Aastra 700 system network redundancy.

The result of this is that each virtual machine still needs their own IP-address as their virtual network interfaces behaves like real interfaces for the operating systems. So, one IP-address is needed for each virtual machine. The hypervisor itself also needs an IP-address for the management through vSphere.

This sum up to the total of five IP-addresses needed for an Aastra 700: three for the server and two by the MGU.

Aastra 700 Number series information This section focuses on the internal number series to be used by the call control server (Telephony Server) as well as the applications running in windows that interface with it. For historical reasons, the terminology used is different for the same number series or parameter depending on the application. Therefore, if applicable, we will list the aliases to help make the relation between specific numbers or parameters when used with the different applications or wizards described in this guide. As an example, when we specify the “OneBox Group Number” in Telephony Server (MP wizard), it is referred to as the “VM forwarding number” in CMG and “Hunt Group Access Code” in OneBox, but they are all mean the same thing.

Aastra 700 Number series information

Aastra 700 Number length (e.g. typically 3-5 digits corresponding to the length of the DID number series and should match Mailbox Number length in OB):

CMG “Extension” number range (low to high). This corresponds to the “DID number series” for user extensions in MP (excluding attendant DID and extension numbers):

CTI Group range and OAS IVR port range (low-high) – These ranges correspond to CTI groups and IVR media ports used on Telephony Server for Solidus eCare:

Common operator number (e.g. typically 09 or 0 used internally to dial the attendant) a.k.a. Operator Number in CMG:

Individual Operator 1 & 2 extension numbers. This should be outside “DID number series” range in MP:

Introduction

It is assumed that the service engineer setting up the Aastra 700 has been properly trained and certified on the relevant Aastra 700 hardware and software. As such, the service engineer should be familiar with the installation and configuration procedures for the 3U Media Gateway, ASU-E Server and relevant accessories, which are described in the CPI documentation.

Before starting the configuration process described in this guide, the hardware should have been unpacked, installed and powered up according to the Aastra 700 Quick Setup Guide, Document 2/1531-ASP 114 01 Uen, delivered in the box with the unit. This document can also be found in the CPI documentation for Aastra 700.

5 Setting MGU Control Data IP address on the Media Gateway

You should configure the MGU Control Data IP address, network mask and default gateway address on the MGU for eth0 only . This is necessary to set-up prior to running the Aastra 700 Manager Provisioning wizard step so the Telephony Server can communicate with the Media Gateway.

Connecting the administrator PC to the MGU There are two ways to access the MGU board to make the configuration depending on network configuration:

SSH If the MGU is connected to the same subnet as your PC or using an RJ45 cross-cable connected to LAN0, then you can use SSH to login to the MGU with the default IP address 192.168.1.2. Just note that when you change this address and re-boot the box, you will lose the connection.

TTY When using a serial connection, the following prerequisites should be done in order to access the MGU board:

Make a terminal connection to the USB port in the front of the MGU. Use cable TSR 899135/1, which is a USB to D-Sub cable, plus a 9 pin D-Sub female to female adaptor which can be plugged into a serial port on your PC.

Use a terminal program, for example, Putty, Kermit or Hyper Terminal.

o

Baud rate is set to 9600 bits/sec, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.

o

No HW or SW flow control.

Configuring the network parameters for MGU The default address for eth0 is: 192.168.1.2/24, which needs to be changed to a fixed IP- address provided by the customer.

Once connected, perform the following steps:

1.

Login userid: admin password: admin

8

2.

Switch to root, by typing: su - The default password is root.

i.Note: It is recommended to change the root password (use passwd command).

3. Set the Control Data IP address and subnet mask of interface 0. Use the command: nvparams -setpar eth0_ip IP-address/netmask

Example: nvparams -setpar eth0_ip 10.10.75.61/24

4. Set the IP address for the default gateway. Use the command: nvparams -setpar def_route IP-address

Example: nvparams -setpar def_route 10.10.75.1

5. Check and verify the settings

Use the command: nvparams -dispar all

6. Make a manual reboot of the MGU board

Use the command:

reboot

Use the command nvparams -help for guidance.

Note: the Media Data IP-address (eth2) will be setup with the Manager Provisioning configuration wizard, so it is not to be configured here.

Important: At this stage, do not connect the LAN1 port on the MGU, as this is only used for redundancy purposes after the initial Manager Provisioning (MP) configuration is completed. If it is connected, the MGU will not be able to communicate properly with the MP wizard during initial configuration phase.

Useful tips on using the vSphere client

To continue with the setup phase, you may go directly to the next chapter. However, the remainder of this section gives some useful information on how the VMware client application works and how to navigate between virtual machines.

NOTE: Stopping and starting the virtual machines from the toolbar

They require VMware Tools to be installed on the virtual machine operating system. This is only valid for the Application Server that runs Windows 2008 Server. The Telephony Server running on SLES10 does not support these functions. Stopping the Telephony Server should be done either from the Linux environment itself or from the Inventory menu in the main window of vSphere:

The function is identical to the separate console window and the toolbar is the same. The only difference is that the console output is running in the main window of the vSphere application instead of a separate window. It is just a personal preference on which one to use.

21

Important: Shifting the keyboard/mouse input between the virtual machines.

The vSphere software does have a special way to capture keyboard and mouse events and redirect them to the virtual machine. This could be confusing in the beginning until you are used to it. This is especially important to remember if the virtual machine is running a non-Windows operating system (like the Telephony Server that runs on SUSE Linux (SLES10). You have a special procedure to handle the keyboard (we cannot use the mouse when in the Telephony Server VM).

1. To activate keyboard input to the SUSE Linux virtual machine, simply click in the console window. The mouse pointer will disappear and all keyboard entries will end up in the Linux shell.

2. When going back to the Windows environment of the workstation, it requires the user to press CTRL + ALT to switch the mouse pointer and the keyboard input back to the workstation.

3. For virtual machines running Windows (our Application Server) it's easier. The VMware Tools takes care of the capture and it is enough to bring the mouse in to the console window of the virtual machine to start interact with it.

Remember: If the mouse is outside virtual machine console = no input. When the mouse is inside, then the input goes to virtual machine. If you find your Application Server does not respond to your keyboard inputs - check where the mouse pointer is.

This section was just a brief introduction to the vSphere client. The software does have many more features, but they are outside the scope of this document as they are not needed to proceed with the installation procedure of the Aastra 700 system.

Setting up the Application Server after initial boot up:

Important Note: During the following procedure, do not power off the system until the Windows installation process has completed as it will corrupt the Windows system and prevent it from working properly!

The Windows process is fully automatic and will set certain values to defaults. The only information needed by the user during this process is the country settings for localization and the Windows 2008 Server Standard edition product key (it is printed on a Microsoft COA label on the Aastra 700 unit, which you should have noted down prior to installing the HW). The computer name and the password for the local administrator account are set to default values.

The computer name is pre-set to Aastra 700AppServer as required by the pre- installed applications. It should NOT be changed in any case; otherwise all applications will stop working.

The password for the local Administrator account is set to Aastra#1 (this could be changed later if needed by using the Configuration Utility).

Launch this program to complete the installation of your Aastra 700 applications. The Configuration Utility will lead you through the following configuration dialogs (working through them from top to bottom) as seen below:

32

Network (Mandatory)

Network (Mandatory) You will be requested to enter the PBX IP-address, or the Telephony Server IP

You will be requested to enter the PBX IP-address, or the Telephony Server IP address you entered in the information sheet, which you used to configure the Linux/Telephony Server virtual machine. This information is used by all Aastra 700 applications that require connections to the Telephony Server side of Aastra 700.

The IP-settings for the Windows 2008 Server is also set at this page. Check the Change local network settings to enable all fields. Fill in the values (these marked with a star are required). This procedure will change the IP-settings of the Windows server from DHCP (the default setting at initial startup) to fixed values.

Note: most of the settings, like Network mask, Default GW or the DNS and Wins server addresses were already obtained from the DHCP server and are valid, but it is possible to change them, if applicable. The only thing that needs to be changed is the Windows Server IP address to a fixed (static) value.

33

CMG (Mandatory)

CMG (Mandatory) You will be asked to enter the following information for the CMG configuration: •

You will be asked to enter the following information for the CMG configuration:

Voice Mail forward destination: The directory number of the OneBox Voice Mail hunt group (This corresponds to the Hunt Group access code defined in the OneBox configuration in the next section). This value can be outside the extension range set below, but must adhere to the same number length.

Operator number: The directory number of the operator/attendant common access code for internal users. This value must not be inside the number series below and is generally 1 or 2 digits (e.g. 9 or 09)

Extensions: The extension range (low to high) for CMG users in the system (corresponds to Aastra 700 Telephony Server extension range, but can also includes things like HGs, individual attendant number or common external DID number). It shall not include Solidus CTI groups or OAS IVR groups. These must be in a separate range outside this extension range.

Note about number lengths: All numbers in the system must have the same length except for the Operator number that could be shorter (it is very common to use "9", or "09" for the operator even if all other numbers in the system are longer). Also, the Voice Mail forward destination and the Operator number can be inside the Extension range (overlapping), although it’s not normally the case.

34

Solidus / OAS (Optional)

Solidus / OAS (Optional) If you plan to use Solidus, then check the Configure Solidus and

If you plan to use Solidus, then check the Configure Solidus and OAS checkbox and fill in the following information:

CTI groups: The wizard will create 13 CTI groups. The highest CTI group number is calculated from the start CTI group number entered. Basic Virtual Devices (BVDs) will be created from the range of CTI-groups entered by the user in the Wizard. These BVDs will be assigned to Service Accesses that will already exist in the SQL database included in the image. These must be outside the extension range defined for CMG in the previous screen.

IVR ports: The wizard will create 15 IVR ports. The highest IVR port number is calculated from the start IVR port number entered. These must be outside the extension range defined for CMG in the previous screen.

Monitored devices: The range of monitored devices in OAS.

Base features code on: The application (country) code of the switch on which the features codes are based. Default value is Standard.

Number length is displayed in the status bar.

35

If there is something wrong with the numbers (overlapping where it is it not allowed or different lengths), an error message is displayed and the user cannot apply the configuration. Example: If you have used a 4 digit number length in the CMG screen, then this must be maintained in the Solidus screen as well. If the number series entered for CTI groups or IVR are overlapping with the extensions defined for CMG, this will also cause this error message to be displayed.

The icon will be deleted from the desktop when the server is rebooted, as this utility only needs to be run once. You must now start the OneBox service after this configuration phase is finished. As this was an initial configuration phase, you must go into the OneBox Configuration tool via the Windows Start menu (Start -> All Programs -> OneBox Desktop -> Configuration) and start the OneBox service prior to going the Manager Provisioning configuration phase. When this tool is started, first set the Automatic Startup checkbox, so OneBox will start automatically in the future. Now click on Startup to initiate the start-up procedure, which takes about 10 to 15 seconds. Note that startup status messages are displayed in the Current Status display area. When the start-up process is complete, press the OK button to exit the OneBox Configuration tool and return to the Windows desktop.

You may now proceed to the next section to start the Manager Provisioning Wizard to finalize the last step of the Aastra 700 setup.

Important Reminder: Don’t forget to install a permanent license for OneBox 5.0

You don’t need to do this now, as the system comes delivered with a temporary license with four ports active. It is sufficient to setup and use the OneBox system initially until the permanent license can be added. If you have not received this license file with your order, a fingerprint of the system must be taken and sent via the Aastra EPI to the Enterprise License center so a permanent license can be generated. The EPI can be reached either by logging into the Aastra Info Channel or using the following link:

53

To obtain this fingerprint, please go to the D:\Setup-files\OneBox\EchoID\ folder and execute echoid.exe. You will then be presented with a dialog box:

echoid.exe . You will then be presented with a dialog box: The Locking Code 1 :

The Locking Code 1 : (With the hexadecimal number format 10-XXXXX), should be included in the EPI request along with the Aastra order number so a permanent OneBox license can be generated for the Aastra 700.

The second locking code has a value of 0-0 and is only used if a dongle is attached to the system via a USB port (then it would display 80-XXXX. With Aastra 700, this Locking Code 2 is not used under normal circumstances as Windows is running on a VMware virtual machine without this dongle).

Once you have received the license file from the license center via e-mail, down load the license .zip file to a network drive or copy it into the Windows D:\ drive so it is accessible by the Windows server.

Then do the following steps to install the permanent license file:

1. Start the System Configuration utility, and then shut down OneBox (shutdown the services).

2. Click the Features tab.

3. Click Import New License.

4. In the License Import window, click Browse to locate the license.zip file.

5. In the Select License File window, select the license package zip file, and then click Open.

6. To install the files, click Import, and then click OK.

7. Restart OneBox (startup the services).

You may have to go to the administration tool and activate features in the permanent license file or add VM ports (lines) as needed.

11

The Manager Provisioning configuration wizard

With Aastra 700 a configuration Wizard has been added to manager provisioning that enables the customer data to be entered, either manually or via a text template into a wizard when Manager Provisioning system is initially installed. This allows the administrator to enter the relevant customer information such as:

Setup the CMG and OneBox subsystems

Configure the Media Gateway IP addresses

DID number range

Operator access code and attendant extensions

Number plan, e.g. outside access code, local area code, international access code etc.

PSTN trunk information

The IP/SIP phone extension ranges

Import user names

OneBox VM port integration data and VM Hunt Group

Step 1 – Initiating the Manager Provisioning Configuration Wizard to configure the Aastra 700 Telephony Server and user and extension data in the CMG and OneBox applications.

Open a web browser in Windows and type in http://<IP-addresss of Telephony Server>/mp

type in http://<IP-addresss of Telephony Server>/mp Enter the Manager Provisioning user name and password that

Enter the Manager Provisioning user name and password that you created when you installed the Telephony Server (chapter 6).

55

When you click on Login, this will bring you to a page where you have to select the Aastra 700 Wizard as configuration method.

Choose the language you want the wizard to use via the drop down box: English is the default.

wizard to use via the drop down box: English is the default. When you press Next

When you press Next, you will come to a screen, as shown on the next page, where all the required information should be filled in.

Please note the following prior to starting the wizard:

The input fields preceded by an * (red asterisk) in the screen below are mandatory and must be filled in for the wizard to complete successfully.

To the left of each input area is a help button (?) that if pressed will give details on the required data for that field.

If you plan to input user data using the template provided at the bottom of the wizard screen, it would be recommended to read and prepare this template prior to starting the MP wizard. As it is a .txt file with comma separated fields, a excel sheet with the customer data can be organized with the columns in the correct order with the relevant information and then saved as a comma delimited file (.csv) or a text (.txt) file.

56

This is the Aastra 700 wizard screen that allows the configuration of the Telephony Server

57

Fill in the fields as follows:

Subsystems Here you fill in the IP address of the Windows 2008 Server Virtual Machine and the user name (default values are pre-set) and password to be used with each subsystem. If you have not changed them (recommendation is to change them before proceeding):

- OneBox user-id: Administrator with no password is the default for OneBox 5.0

- CMG user-id: niceadmin with password aastra is the default for CMG 7.5

System Configuration

The Site Name can be any name, but it must be filled in. Select the appropriate Market from the drop down menu corresponding to your country. This information is to identify the Aastra 700 telephony system and to select the application system that shall be used in the Telephony Server.

MGU Fill in the IP network information based on the IP addresses for the Media Gateway (MGU). Here we need to fill in the 2 IP-addresses that should have been reserved for the Media Gateway, which you have put in the information sheet. The first address (Control Data) is the eth0_IP address (e.g. 10.10.75.61) you configured in the MGU in the initial step and the second one is the "Media Data" IP-address reserved for the MGU (as a note, the control port is used for signaling and the media port is used for RTP/audio data). As an example, you could have 10.10.75.61 and 10.10.75.62 as the 2 addresses. You also need to fill in the Subnet Mask and the Default G/W address, which correspond to the site specific LAN settings. As a reminder, the Default G/W corresponds to the def_route parameter you configured in the MGU in the initial step (example 10.10.75.1). These values need to be entered for both MGU IP-addresses.

Numbering Plan This is the site specific information on the numbering plan for the Public network DID (direct in-dialing) number series and access/dial codes that will be used for access to certain services. The DID number series entered here will be the basis for the internal number range used to create IP extensions below. In general, the DID number series should exclude attendant numbers, VM HG number, VM ports and Solidus CTI and IVR ports. These shall use extension numbers outside this range. As an example, if the public DID number series for the company is 08 568 2000-2199, then the DID number series entered would be 2003-2199 , as you would reserve 3 numbers outside this range for the Common Operator DID number (Main number) and 2 numbers for the Individual Operator numbers. The number 2000, in this example, would be reserved as the company’s main public number for outside callers to reach the operator/attendant. See Common Operator DID Number below. Numbers 2001 and 2002 would be reserved as the extension numbers for the attendants as described below in the Individual Operator numbers 1 & 2 section.

The Common Operator Number is the number used to dial the operator from internal extensions in the PBX. It should be consistent with the one you set up with the Windows Configuration Utility for CMG and should be unique and not part of the DID number series. 9 or 09 are commonly used for this.

The Common Operator DID Number is the last part of the company’s public outside number or main number, which is routed internally to the attendant for external callers. Its length is usually from 3-5 digits and should correspond to the number length you defined in the Aastra 700 configuration Utility. This number must be unique and not part the DID number series above, which is used to access specific user extensions and services. Example: if a company’s main number is 08 568 2000, then the 2000 part of this number would correspond to the Common Operator DID number. It is usually the first number in the DID number series provided by the local service provider.

58

The Individual Operator Number 1 and 2 are the actual extension numbers assigned to the attendants. With the example above, if the main number is 2000, then the Individual Operator number 1 and 2 would be 2001 and 2002 respectively. They must be outside of the range defined in the DID number series .

Public Access Code is the code used by internal callers to dial out (e.g. 0 or 00 or 9 are commonly used) Own Area Code – a 2 or 3 digit prefix to the local number (e.g. for a main number in Stockholm of 08 568 6700, the 08 is the Own Area Code and the rest is the number.

International Prefix is the code dialed after the Public Access Code to be able to make international calls. Example: In Europe, to dial an international number from a fixed phone, you must dial 00 first. In North America, this corresponds to 011. So, if someone from their home phone in Stockholm wanted to dial a number in Paris, they would dial 00 33 1 40004040, where 00 is the International Prefix and 33 is the country code for France.

Route This information corresponds to the PSTN trunks (ISDN PRI only) that shall be setup for the system, based on the public ISDN trunks provided by the local SP. Should SIP-trunking or some other type of interface also be used, these shall be defined later after this wizard is finished.

Select 1 or 2 PRI interfaces. Select the ISDN PRI type E1 (30B+D) or T1(23B+D) interfaces based on the trunk type provided on your market. The system will setup the trunk parameters based on the Market setting selected earlier.

If more PRIs are needed, then these may be added later after the wizard is finished. Also, trunks of other types (SIP/H.323 or analog, for example) could be added later in the same way.

OneBox This is to define the number of VM ports to be defined in the system. You also enter the OneBox (VM) Group number and the First OneBox Port Number (first Telephony Server extension number used for the VM media ports/lines). These should be the same values as you entered in the configuration utility for OneBox (Previous section).

User and Extension Configuration There are 2 ways to enter this information:

1. Manually by putting in the number of extensions (fill in an amount) per class of service type (internal, regional, national, International). Optionally, you may select the OneBox or CMG tick boxes to create a VM box and a CMG directory entry for the users of each type. The system will automatically attribute extension numbers based on the “DID number series” range above. As an example, you could create 10 internal numbers for common areas and 50 international numbers for normal users with CMG and OneBox configurations checked.

2. Importing a .csv file with user information already filled in (this is the recommended method). In this case, download the provided template in txt format that you would import into excel to create the csv file. The template contains the instructions of how the file should look. Once you have entered the customer data, you then save the template and import it into the wizard using the data file option and pressing the Browse button. The advantage to this method is that you can enter the names of users and attribute their class of service, whether or not they have a VM mail box and a CMG directory entry. The system will attribute an IP extension number in the order in which the names are entered and grouped by class of service. If the extension type is a Mobile Extension, then the user’s mobile number and presented A-number must be provided in the template. When IP extensions are setup, the system will choose DBC 422 by default as the terminal type. It may be necessary to go in after the fact to change the terminal type for certain extensions to match the customer specific requirements. Additionally, the OneBox mailbox

59

number and CMG extension for that user will be the same as the extension number assigned to the user.

Once this information has been entered or imported, click on Apply to finalize the process. If the configuration is successful, an automatic backup of the system will be performed. But if there are any errors in the entered information, an error message will be show, the system will be restored to initial state and you will have the option to correct and then rerun the wizard.

will have the option to correct and then rerun the wizard. This will trigger a series

This will trigger a series of scripts that will pre-configure the Telephony Server, CMG and OneBox with the appropriate customer data to setup the system. As Manager Provisioning communicates with Manager TS, OneBox and CMG through Web-Services, then all necessary configuration changes can be handled at the same time. Once the scripts are run, the basic setup of the system is now completed. Changes can be done now in MP as per normal to do moves, adds or changes, as deemed necessary to adjust the basic setup to match the customer specific environment.

YOU ARE NOT FINISHED JUST YET!

Please read the next section to learn about some suggestions or things to look out for, as MP uses default settings that may need to be adjusted to fit the customer scenario.

60

12

Finishing the Aastra 700 configuration process

12.1 Finalizing the configuration and useful tips

At this point, the system is up and running with the basic configuration in place.

As this is a basic configuration from a Telephony Server perspective, where MP is using mostly default values, there may be some additional operations to be performed after the configuration wizard is completed to adjust or add some feature settings to correspond to the actual customer environment. Some examples of these are:

Modify market specific trunks setting for access to the PSTN

Initiate/change e Common Diversion settings

Modify Hunt group settings to allow external access (VM HG for example)

Initiating the GICI interface in Telephony Server for CMG activity setting

initiating Solidus CTI groups in Telephony Server or IVR media ports in Telephony Server.

Activating the CTI interface for Application Link in Telephony Server.

Configuration changes or updates are mostly handled through accessing Manager Provisioning or Manager TS using a standard web browser and using standard operation and maintenance procedures.

Once this is done, all you need is to add terminals and you are ready to go. If you are using IP or SIP sets, then it is generally a matter of setting the proper options with the customer DHCP server so the phones will be directed to the software server in the Aastra 700 when they are plugged in to retrieve their configurations. For instructions on how to set this up, please follow the appropriate Installation Instruction for the different terminals, which is provided in the CPI documentation.

If you are using other terminal types than the Dialog series IP sets, you may need to go into Manager TS to setup the appropriate phone configuration files for IPP. You may also want to go into MP and change the terminal type to correspond to the actual terminals assigned to specific user extensions.

Note: If you will be using Solidus or adding In-touch clients, verify that the Solidus “tools” folder on the Media Kit is copied onto the Windows server.

Additionally, you will have to go in and put in permanent licenses for the applications if you did not have them in time for the initial setup. This is done using the standard tools provided with the applications to do this. Refer to the relevant documentation for details.

It is strongly recommended to go the service plaza to check for any service advices for Aastra 700 around the configuration processes to avoid losing time.

61

12.2

Don’t forget to back-up your system

Once you have finished your configuration it would be strongly advised to take a snapshot of both VMs to save the work you have done. Furthermore, it would be recommended to do standard data back- ups for Telephony Server and the applications as an added precaution.

Finally, if you are familiar with the VMware Converter utility (standalone version), this would be a good time to do an image back-up of both Aastra 700 virtual machines to an external network drive. This would enable a complete recovery of your system in the unlikely event of a disk crash on your Aastra 700 system.

12.3 Optional Windows configuration settings

This section is optional, but highly recommended, and can be done at any point after the setup is complete. When the application server is on the network, it is suitable to put it in to the domain if there is one. Select Change System Properties from the Server Manager page (Start -> Server Manager). The "System Properties"-dialog shows up.

Enter the domain name and press Ok . A request for user name and password

Enter the domain name and press Ok. A request for user name and password appears:

press Ok . A request for user name and password appears: What you need here is

What you need here is a user with rights to register new machines in the Windows Domain. The IT- department should have this information or at least, be able to help you out. If successful, you will be prompted for a reboot of the server. Initiate the reboot and when the server is back, log on again with the same Administrator user as in the beginning of this guide.

Windows Update The Windows Update function should be configured and run according to the customer IS/IT department policies.

63

A note about optional updates: It is generally recommended to avoid installing them , unless it is the company IT policy to do so. Check what they are intended for and hide those that are not needed on the server (examples are Microsoft Live and Internet Explorer 8). Hiding them will keep them away in the future, not disturbing you with their presence. If they are needed in a later time, they can always be restored and installed.

Some things to consider:

SET THE PROPER TIME AND DATE or configure the appropriate NTP server address. Otherwise, when you install the temporary ELM licenses for the Solidus eCare application, they will expire.

Install the corporate anti-virus software according to the company IS/IT policies. This should be done as soon as possible to prevent infection. If the customer network provides a centralized anti-virus solution, this is not needed. Note: the anti-virus solution must be provided by the customer. It is not included in the Aastra 700 package. A scanner with low system impact is recommended due to the nature of the virtual environment.

The Windows firewall on the server is by default disabled. Keep it in that way to prevent problems with the applications. The firewall solution should be in the network instead.

For remote administration without vSphere, either enable the Remote Desktop function or install the remote control software used by the customer. By default, Remote Desktop is disabled.

Now you are finished with the setup and configuration of the Aastra 700 and are ready to put it into service.
