Logging in to the CLI Using the Console

You can log in to the CLI from the console using either the mpxadmin or root user IDs. This is the only way you can log in directly as the root user. You can enter operating system commands here.


Procedure
  1. Connect the monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the Application Server.
    The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace operating system login page is displayed.
  2. For the username, enter mpxadmin.
  3. Enter the password for the mpxadmin user.
    This was established during installation.
  4. Right-click the desktop and select Open Terminal.
    A command window appears. You can start entering commands. This is a Linux operating system so all commands should be either Linux commands or Cisco Unified MeetingPlace operating system commands. See Operating System Commands for information about the operating system commands.
  5. When you are finished with the command window, either enter exit or click the X in the top right corner.
    Note: Always log out of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace operating system when you are finished.
