You should already have a working CUCM install within a virtual machine with a supporting network and services, as described in lab A-1. This is the same setup you've been using in all of your chapter 8 and 9 labs. If CUCM and your web browser aren't already running, start them—detailed instructions are contained in the first several steps of 8-1.
We'll concern ourselves with two kinds of services in this lab.
The Feature Services Status page, shown in the third screenshot of the walkthrough below, lists two kinds of status:
|CUCM Address||CUCM Admin Login / Password||CUCM OS Admin Login / Password|
|10.0.4.5||student / ciscoclass||cucmroot / ciscoclass|
Fill in the following table with the menu sequence that takes you to the correct screen for each of the listed actions.
|Restart a network service|
|Activate a feature service|
|Stop, restart, and view the statuses of feature services|
This is never explicitly mentioned in Cisco's exam objectives, but it is fundamental to much of your ability to make CUCM useful, for example by adding phones, which we'll start doing in our next lab. For troubleshooting purposes, you might also keep in mind the consequences of not activating various feature services.
In your web browser, navigate to the Cisco Unified Serviceability page (https://10.0.4.5/ccmservice). If you're already in the system, say on the CM Admin page, you can switch to the Serviceability page using the navigation drop-down in the upper-right-hand corner of the page. Log in if you need to (student/ciscoclass), but you knew that.
Open the Network Services Control Center.
The status column shows that all network services are already running, but if you select one, you can stop or restart it, using either the buttons at the bottom of the screen or the icons near the top. The circles in the left column are radio buttons, allowing you to stop/restart only one service at a time. Pick a service and restart it.
Open the Service Activation window. You can either use the menu sequence below or the "Related Links" drop-down at the right end of the black bar directly below the menus. This is the same black bar that holds the title of the current page.
On this page, the left column has square checkboxes instead of radio buttons, allowing you to activate / deactivate more than one of the listed services at a time. In the "CM Services" section, check the boxes next to "Cisco CallManager" and "Cisco Tftp" and click the [Save] button at the bottom of the list or the "Save" icon at the top to activate them. After a refresh, those services will show an activation status of "Activated." Activating a feature service will also automatically start it. Activated services automatically start when CUCM does.
Open the Feature Services Control Center, either through the related links drop-down, or explicitly:
If an activated feature service were to fail to start after being activated, this is where you would manually start it.
If you click the radio button next to a deactivated (never activated) service, a popup will tell you to go to the Service Activation screen instead. This is the same screen you were just on when you activated "Cisco CallManager" and TFTP.
So just like with the Network Services Control Center, you can't activate/deactivate from here, but you can stop and restart feature services. Try stopping the TFTP service. After the page (eventually) refreshes, you'll see that the service has a status of "Not Running," but still has an activation status of "Activated." If you're going to continue working on labs, you'd better start the TFTP service back up. If you're shutting down CUCM for the day, don't bother; all activated services will automatically start when CUCM is restarted regardless of whether they were running when CUCM was shut down.
