By default, when a Unified Messaging (UM) IP gateway is created, its status is set to enabled. However, you might need to disable the UM IP gateway to take it offline and not allow it to take incoming or outgoing calls. After you create a UM IP gateway, you can control its operation and functionality by setting its status variable to enabled or disabled.

For additional management tasks related to UM IP gateways, see UM IP Gateway Procedures.
