Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0

Up one level: Configuration




  • Video-enabled meetings are restricted to a maximum meeting recording length of 6 hours, even if no video participants actually attend. Specifically:
    • In the user profile of the meeting scheduler, if the Video usage field enables the user to host video meetings, then the meeting recording cannot exceed 6 hours. If this limit is reached during a meeting, the system automatically stops the recording.
    • A user cannot schedule a meeting longer than 6 hours if the Reserve resource for recording user profile field is set to Yes, and the Video usage field enables the user to host video meetings.
    • There is no meeting recording length restriction for meetings scheduled by users whose Video usage user profile field is set to Can attend video meetings. Because these users cannot host video meetings, the meetings they schedule are not video-enabled.


  • Video-enabled recording requires H.264 to be the highest priority in the list of supported video codec for 7.0 MR1.
    • Log into Audio blade.
    • Click MCU > Services.
    • Highlight the service code and click edit > Advanced video Settings.
    • Add H.264 to Selected and make to be the first in the list.


  • The system allows a maximum of 100 concurrent meeting recordings. Nevertheless, the supported number of concurrent recordings depends on the Application Server model, the configured and utilized capacity of your system, and the type of media (voice, video, web) being recorded.
For detailed recording limitations, see the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace data sheet at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/ps5664/ps5669/products_data_sheets_list.html.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace does not record Cisco WebEx meetings, even though the audio portion is held on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system. This restriction applies to all meetings that are scheduled to use Cisco WebEx web conferencing, even if participants never join the web meetings.
Instead, Cisco WebEx meetings are recorded through Cisco WebEx Network-Based Recording (NBR) and stored on the Cisco WebEx site. The recording capacity is determined by the Cisco WebEx account.


  • The Application Server can store up to:
    • 500 hours of audio recordings or 80 hours of video recordings on a Cisco MCS 7835.
    • 1000 hours of audio recording or 160 hours of video recordings on a Cisco MCS 7845.
      • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting recordings are only initially stored on the Application Server. Shortly after each recorded meeting ends, the Replication Service copies the meeting recording from the Application Server to the Web Server, where the recording is converted and stored for user playback.
      • Every day at 2 a.m. (local server time), the system purges all recordings on the Application Server that are older than 24 hours. To display the available disk space for recordings (/mpx-record directory) on the Application Server, log in to the CLI and enter df -k.
      • Note: If the /mpx-record disk space on the Application Server ever becomes 90% utilized, the system generates a minor alarm and does not allow any more recordings to begin until sufficient disk space is freed by the daily 2 a.m. purge. If recordings in progress cause the disk space to become 97% utilized, then the system stops all recordings. In the unlikely event that the disk space becomes 100% utilized, the system generates a major alarm, and you need to contact Cisco TAC.
  • In Release 7.0.3 (MR2), an audio participant must have joined the meeting before users can record a web meeting.
