Configuration

SNMP

AccelOps uses SNMP to discover and monitor this device. Make sure SNMP is enabled for the device as directed in its product documentation, then follow the instructions in Setting Access Credentials for Device Discovery to establish the connection between the device and AccelOps, and to initiate the device discovery process.

 

SFTP

SFTP is used to send Call Description Records (CDRs) to AccelOps.

Configure AccelOps to Receive CDR Records from Cisco Call Manager

  1. Log in to your AccelOps virtual appliance as root over SSH.
  2. Change the directory.
  3. Create an FTP account for user ftpuser with the home directory /opt/phoenix/cache/avayaCM/<call-manager-ip>. If this is the first time you have created a Call Manager definition, you will be prompted for the ftpuser password. When you create subsequent Call Manager definitions, the same password will be used, and you will see a Success message when the definition is created.
  4. The CDR records do not have field definitions, they only have values. Field definitions are needed to properly interpret the values. Make sure that the CDR fields definitions matches the default one supplied by AccelOps in /opt/phoenix/config/AvayaCDRConfig.csv. AccelOps will interpret the CDR record fields according to the field definitions specified in /opt/phoenix/config/AvayaCDRConfig.csv and generate events like the following.

AccelOps uses SNMP to discover and monitor this device. Make sure SNMP is enabled for the device as directed in its product documentation, then follow the instructions in Setting Access Credentials for Device Discovery to establish the connection between the device and AccelOps, and to initiate the device discovery process.

WMI (for Call Manager installed under Windows)

Configuring WMI on your device so AccelOps can discover and monitor it requires you to create a user who has access to WMI objects on the device. There are two ways to do this:

Creating a Generic User Who Does Not Belong to the Local Administrator Group

Creating a User Who Belongs to the Domain Administrator Group

Creating a Generic User Who Does Not Belong to the Local Administrator Group

Log in to the machine you want to monitor with an administrator account.
