is there a legit way I can get hold of Callmanager Express 4.1 or earlier? I've been told this is what I need for a 2600 router. I've tried some resellers, they say discontinued, no can do. Thanks for any advice.
If you are talking about all that kind of money for the proper router licensing, device licenses and IP phones, why do you want to use an EOL'd router that lacks several hardware features necessary for CME anyway? (Plain 2600 router EOL announced in May 2002, 2600XM router EOL announced in March 2006). What's a $2k 2800 ISR?
Also, the 2600's are all fallen off for current version CME support as it is, so even if you could get it, and you made it fit, none of the newer versions would run...
You don't say if you have a 2600, or a 2600XM. The 2600XMs are really the only ones with a chance to run it when it was called CME. Back when it was called ITS, you may have got a 2600 (non XM) to run it.
CME 7.0 only supports the 2800's and 3800's. CME 4.2 only supports the 2800's, 3700's and the 3800s. CME 4.1 was the last to support the 2600XMs.
You get bundle discounts when you buy the router, PVDM's and the CCME license together instead of thins like FL-CCME-SMALL= costing $750 (list).. (still needing device licenses for that one). Or a FL-CCME-UC-5= 5 device & 5 CME/CUE user upgrade for $1495 list..
thankyou Doug but could I ask you if you're sure about CME4.1 and the XM's? I have a 2651XM, you're the second person who's told me it will support
4.1 but someone else has insisted it will only support 4.0. I'm thus confused at this point. A 2651XM will be arriving at my door in the next few days and I'll need to set it up so thanks for any further advice.
Well, lets see, CME 4.1 was bundled in IOS rev 12.4(9)T.. My 2610XM here is running that version..
