2. Configure Avaya Communication Manager

Overview

This section presents configuration steps for the Avaya Communication Manager. It is assumed that an appropriate license file and authentication file have been installed on the server, and that login and password credentials are available.
The configuration and verification operations illustrated in this section were all performed using the Communication Manager System Administration Terminal (SAT).
The procedures include the following areas:
  • Verify license
  • Verify the status CTI link for TSAPI service
  • Administer system parameters features
  • Administer agent stations

2.1 Verify license

Log into the System Access Terminal (SAT) to verify that the Communication Manager license has proper permissions for the features required for call recording. Use the "display system-parameters customer-options" command to verify that the Computer Telephony Adjunct Links customer option is set to "y" on Page 4. If this option is not set to "y", then contact Avaya sales team of business partner for a proper license file.

2.2 Verify the status of CTI link for TSAPI service

If the CTI link is not established, then follow the instructions in the Administering Communication Manager for AE Services chapter in the Application Enablement Services Administration and Maintenance Guide document available at http://support.avaya.com.

2.3 Administer agent stations

Use the "change station xxxxx" command, where xxxxx is the phone's extension, and change IP SoftPhone to "y", to allow a virtual IP softphone (DMCC) to be registered against the station. The MiaRec application will use the Multiple Registration feature of Communication Manager to register the DMCC-based recording device against the station.
