CUCM does not start

Here you can ask EVE-NG team to add new images to the list to play in lab.

Do not ask questions like "where I can get image x or Y" in that forum

CUCM does not start

Post by akikai » Mon Mar 18, 2019 3:24 am

Can you help me, how to install the CUCM?

Step 1:
I have the ISO image named cdrom.iso, in the CUCM folder,


use putty

root@eve-ng: ~# cd /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/cucm-CallManager
root@eve-ng:/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/cucm-CallManager # qemu-img create -f qcow2 virtioa.qcow2 80G


/opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions

now I have two files in the CUCM folder

but when executing the CUCM it does not start

for obvious reasons in vnc does not work

You need to follow the following steps, and It works, I've tested it on both my home server and Google Cloud.

1. Get or make a Bootable image for the CUCM version you want.
2. Edit the Bootable image to reduce its size.
3. Follow these instructions
a. mkdir /opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/cucm-UCM-11.5
b. cd/opt/unetlab/addons/qemu/cucm-UCM-11.5
c. upload the bootable .iso files into the folder using Win SCP or Filezilla
d. rename the bootable .iso file to cdrom.iso
e. create a blank virtioa.qcow2 drive using the "qemu-img create -f qcow2 virtioa.qcow2 80G - ** Note you can use a smaller size**
d. /opt/unetlab/wrappers/unl_wrapper -a fixpermissions
e. Make sure when you add the node you have "VNC" enabled. - You have to have a VNC connection to see the install prompts - Read about how to in the EVE-NG Cookbook
f. Connect to the node at start up via VNC and follow the prompts.

I hope this helps and thanks...
