  2. Compare the data in the Raw Profile Information Report that you ran in Step 6 of the Running MeetingTime Reports on the Primary Server to the newly configured primary server's (originally the shadow server) information to be sure it is replicating.
  3. Access the CLI.
  4. Log in as a technician. The tech$ prompt appears.
  5. Confirm that the gateways have reconnected by entering gwstatus .
  6. Confirm that the spans are up by entering spanstat -s .
  7. Log in to MeetingTime to confirm that you can connect.


Changing the Shadow Server Back to Shadow Server Mode

After completing the test switchover, the shadow server must be reconfigured as a shadow server.

To Change the Shadow Server Back to Shadow Server Mode
  1. Access the shadow server CLI.
  2. Log in as a technician. The tech$ prompt appears.
  3. Enter down .
  4. Confirm that you want to bring the shadow server down by entering y .

  3. Enter restart enable .
  4. After the primary server is back online, enter swstatus .
  5. Confirm that the shadow server, unit 9, is reconnected.
  6. Log in to the shadow server via the CLI.
  7. Enter swstatus .
  8. Confirm that the shadow server shows itself as being connected to the primary server, unit 0.
  9. Wait at least 15 minutes.
  10. If there are meetings taking place on the primary server, log in to the shadow server via the CLI.
  11. Enter cptrace . If the data is replicating properly, you see data being logged from the call traces. If there is nothing in the trace, contact Cisco TAC.
  12. Exit the cptrace command by entering q .
