Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0

Up one level: Configuration



By default, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meetings that are scheduled from Microsoft Outlook use the Collaborative meeting template.


Contents

Before You Begin
  • NOTE: Following instructions apply only to MeetingPlace 7.0 MR2 and above, or MP 7.0(2.48) Outlook hotfix and above. In earlier MeetingpPlace 7.0 versions it is NOT possible to change the default meeting template for meetings scheduled from Microsoft Outlook.
  • This task requires familiarity with editing text files in the Linux environment, for example, by using the Linux vim command.
  • Performing this task changes the system-wide default meeting template. Nevertheless, individual users can select a different meeting template while scheduling meetings.
Restriction

You cannot select a custom meeting template as the default meeting template. You can only choose from the following options: Collaborative, Presentation, and Webinar.


Caution! Performing this task requires that you restart the Apache Tomcat services and the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing services. Proceed only during a scheduled maintenance period.


Procedure
  1. Log in to the Application Server CLI as the mpxadmin user.
  2. Enter su to get root privileges.
  3. Navigate to the following directory:
    /opt/cisco/meetingplace/web/current/bases/main/webapps/outlook/WEB-INF/classes/com/cisco/meetingplace/outlook/bundles
  4. View the BreezeTemplates.properties file.
    [root@example-appserver bundles]# cat BreezeTemplates.properties
    3=Webinar
    2=Presentation
    1=Collaborative
    ORDER=1,2,3
    The current default template is item 1, which in this example (and by default) is the Collaborative template.
    Proceed only if you want to specify a different default meeting template.
  5. Change the order by updating ORDER parameter so that the desired default meeting template (first item in the list) is item 2.
  6. Verify that the file is correct and that there are no typographical errors.
    In the following example, the order is changed to use the Presentation template by default:
    [root@example-appserver bundles]# cat BreezeTemplates.properties
    3=Webinar
    2=Presentation
    1=Collaborative
    ORDER=2,1,3
  7. Restart the Apache Tomcat services.
    [root@example-appserver bundles]# /etc/init.d/mpx_tomcat restart
  8. Restart the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing services.
Example

In the following example, the order is changed to use the Presentation template by default:

[root@example-appserver bundles]# cat BreezeTemplates.properties

3=Webinar

2=Presentation

1=Collaborative

ORDER=1,2,3

[root@example-appserver bundles]# cat << END > BreezeTemplates.properties

> 3=Webinar

> 2=Presentation

> 1=Collaborative

> ORDER=2,1,3

> END

[root@example-appserver bundles]# cat BreezeTemplates.properties

3=Webinar

2=Presentation

1=Collaborative

ORDER=2,1,3

[root@example-appserver bundles]# /etc/init.d/mpx_tomcat restart

Stopping tomcat: [ OK ]

Starting tomcat: [ OK ]

[root@example-appserver bundles]#

Verifying

Restart Microsoft Outlook and schedule a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting. Verify that the desired meeting template is used by default.
