Cisco IM&P Chat Room Postgres Server

December 31, 2014 0 Comments call-manager, cisco, voip

If you want to implement chat rooms/persistent chat or chat logging with Cisco IM and Presence, you need to setup an external postgres server.  The setup is relatively easy (I used a ubuntu server), and can be found here.

Cisco CUCM TFTP server

December 30, 2014 0 Comments call-manager, cisco, voip

If you want to view the files loaded on your CUCM TFTP server, you don't have to download and open the file.  Just navigate to http://cucm-ip-address:6970/file.xml

For example, if I wanted to view my jabber config, I would go to: http://cucm-ip-address:6970/jabber-config.xml

Alternatively, you can still download/upload files from CUCM OS Administration

Cisco vs HP vs Dell CLI - VLAN Configuration

July 03, 2014 0 Comments cisco, hp, dell

This post continues my series on the differences between these three manufacturers and how they implement L2 and L3 VLANs.

Scenario 1: Create a Layer 2 VLAN

Cisco IOS:

vlan 10

HP Procurve:

vlan 10

Dell Powerconnect:

vlan database
vlan 10

Scenario 2: Create a Layer 3 VLAN (that's routable)

Cisco IOS:

interface vlan 10
ip address 192.168.1.

Cisco vs HP vs Dell CLI - Interface Configuration

After working with all three switch manufacturers in a short period of time, I figured I would do a quick post on how each chooses how to implement VLANs at the interface level.

Scenario 1: Switchport needs to be part of a single native VLAN (VLAN 10)

Cisco IOS:

interface GigabitEthernet1/1
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 10
