Configuring the Primary Server to Recognize the Shadow Server

To Configure the Primary Server to Recognize the Shadow Server
  1. If not already connected, access the CLI.
  2. Log in as a technician. The tech$ prompt appears.
  3. If you do not already have terminal logging turned on, turn it on. For information, see Logging Your HyperTerminal Session.
  4. At the tech$ prompt, enter net . The following example appears:
    meetingplace:tech$ net
    1) View the server & site configuration
    2) Modify the server configuration
    3) Select another server (current unit = #0)
    99) Quit
    Select:
  5. Select another server by entering 3 . The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system prompts you for a unit number.

    Unit:
  6. Select unit 9 by entering 9 . The following example appears:
    Unit: 9

  7. Modify the server configuration by entering 2 .
  8. If unit 9 is currently inactive (which it should be) the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system asks if you want to make it active. Enter y . See the following example:
    You have selected a new configuration for this unit.
    Unit class = SHADOW
    Site class = REMOTE
    Update the initialization file (y/[n])? y
    DONE
    NOTE: Changes take effect with the next restart of the unit.
    Unit class = SHADOW/REMOTE
  9. Select options 3 , 4 , 5 , and 6 from the net command menu consecutively and enter the appropriate data by following the prompts. Enter the data from the Obtaining the Necessary Information. If you do not want to change a specific value, press Enter to move to the next line without making any changes.
  10. To select a different site for the shadow server (if the shadow server is physically located at a different site), enter 2 .
  11. After you confirm that the shadow server is set to active, enter 99 to return to the main net command menu. The following example appears:
    Select: 99
    Current server configuration:
    Unit: #9 (vp9)
    Active: YES
    Description: Shadow Server
    Kind: Shadow server
    IP Address: 10.10.10.10
    Ethernet address: 0001bc0211b8

    Site subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Site broadcast addr: 0.0.0.0
    Site default gateway: 10.10.10.1
    Do you wish to commit these changes (y/n)?
  12. Confirm the settings shown here match the information in the Obtaining the Necessary Information.
  13. If the settings do not match, do not save these changes. Enter n and repeat the necessary steps of the procedure, entering the correct data. If the settings do match, save these changes by entering y .
  14. Exit the net command by entering 99 .
