ServicePilot voip-cisco-unity-express


# Cisco Unity Express

Overview

This package is designed to monitor a Cisco Unity Express module using SNMP.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to monitor a Cisco Unity Express module in terms of global informations and mailboxes based on an SNMP collection.

Requirements

  • SNMP must be configured and started on the Cisco Unity Express host

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and the network device
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between the network device and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
