Cisco CUCM: How Do I Ping A Device From My CUCM (CallManager)

Here is how you do it in CLI on the CUCM server.  I much prefer CLI for some reason, but in CUCM, the CLI is a little limited if you are used to a Cisco router or switch.  You have to SSH into the server.  Here is what you do:

admin: utils network ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

--- ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 3000ms


  1. really helpful, since i am new to cucm.

  2. Easy peasy, thanks for the post!

  3. what is the command for a constant ping to watch for drops?

    1. I think you can use the "count" option to ping as many times as you like.
