Application Server Requirements


Application Server Models

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server is installed on a Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS). The Application Server must be one of the following Cisco MCS models:


Cisco MCS 7835
  • Cisco MCS 7835-H2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-H2-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I2-RC2


Note: The Cisco MCS 7835 models must have at least 4 GB of memory using these memory modules:

  • MEM-7835-H2-1GB=
  • MEM-7835-I2-2GB=


Cisco MCS 7845
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H2-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I2-RC2


Exact equivalent third-party servers are also supported. For information, go to http://www.cisco.com/go/swonly


Recommended Ethernet Port Settings

We recommend the following Ethernet port settings:


Application Server Ethernet Switch Port Result

Auto-negotiate

Auto-negotiate

Gigabit or 100/Full

Gigabit

Gigabit

Gigabit

100/Full

100/Full

100/Full



We do not recommend the following:

  • One device set to auto-negotiate and the other device set in a fixed configuration
  • 10Mb Ethernet
  • Half duplex Ethernet at any speed

Media Server Requirements

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Media Server requires a Cisco 3500 Series Media Server. The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 system can accommodate a maximum of eight Cisco 3500 Series Media Servers.


Each Media Server is comprised of at least one Audio Blade and optionally, one to four Video Blades.


There are two types of Cisco 3500 Series Media Server:

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server. Delivered with a predetermined number of ports.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3545 Media Server. Can be configured to support a wide range of audio and/or video ports.


You can mix and match Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Media Servers. For example, if you deployed a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace solution using a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3515 Media Server, you could add more video ports to the solution by adding a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3545 Media Server chassis plus a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3545 Media Server Video Blade.

Web Server Requirements


Web Server Models

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server is installed on a Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS). The Web Server must be one of the following Cisco MCS models:


Cisco MCS 7835

Note: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace supports the Cisco MCS 7835 models only for systems that are upgrading a Web Server from Release 6.0 to Release 7.0. For Cisco Unified MeetingPlace systems that use new hardware for the Web Server, we require a Cisco MCS 7845 H2/I2 model.

  • Cisco MCS 7835-H1-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-H1-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I1-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I1-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7835-H2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-H2-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7835-I2-RC2


Note: The Cisco MCS 7835 models must have at least 4 GB of memory using these memory modules:

  • MEM-7835-H2-1GB=
  • MEM-7835-I2-2GB=


Cisco MCS 7845
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H1-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H1-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I1-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I1-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-H2-RC2
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I2-RC1
  • Cisco MCS 7845-I2-RC2


Exact equivalent third-party servers are also supported. For information, go to http://www.cisco.com/go/swonly


Operating System Requirements

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server runs on the Cisco MCS operating system Cisco MCS OS 2003.1.2.a SR13 or later, which is included with the software.


SQL Server Requirements

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (Service Pack 4). During the installation, you can choose the local SQL Server option or the remote SQL Server option:

  • If you choose the local SQL Server option, the system automatically installs SQL Server 2000 (Service Pack 4) during the Web Conferencing software installation. Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (Service Pack 4) is included in the Web Conferencing Release 7.0 installer.
  • If you choose the remote SQL Server option, you must install SQL Server 2000 (Service Pack 4) before you install Web Conferencing. You must also install and configure your SQL Server to be case insensitive because Web Conferencing supports only SQL Server case-insensitive configurations. If you configure your SQL Server to be case sensitive, Web Conferencing will not function properly.
    Note: If you choose the remote SQL Server option, you can use SQL Server 2005 (Service Pack 2) instead of SQL Server 2000 (Service Pack 4). To use SQL Server 2005, first install the SQL Server 2005 backward compatibility software (the Distributed Management Objects [DMO] component only) on the Web Server.


Networking Requirements

  • The Web Server must be configured with two static IP addresses on the same subnet.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Servers must be connected to network switch ports that are configured for 100/1000 Mb full duplex.


Additional Requirements

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing does not support "thin clients" (Citrix or Terminal Server).
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing requires that all corporate fonts and standard Microsoft fonts, including Microsoft PowerPoint fonts, are installed.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing requires NT File System (NTFS) with more than 2.5 GB free space available.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing requires additional disk space for recording. See the "Recording Size" section in the Configuration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 or the online help in the administrator interface for more information about recording.
  • You must set the network port configuration on your Web Server to "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP" and not "Default."
