After you install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server, test the installation by completing the following tasks in this order:


Contents

Defining the Web Server Hostname

If you want users to be able to access the Web Server by using the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the server, or if you plan to configure SSL for this Web Server, do the following procedure.


Note: If the Web Server is not in a Domain Name Server (DNS), do not perform this procedure.


Procedure
  1. Open your web browser, and enter the URL of your Web Server.
    • For internal Web Servers, the default URL structure is http://<server>, where <server> is the name of your internal Web Server.
    • For external (DMZ) Web Servers running Release 7.0.1, the default URL structure is http://<server>/mpweb/admin/, where <server> is the name of your external Web Server.
    • For external Web Servers running Release 7.0.2 or later, you can only access the administration pages for the external (DMZ) server from the server box itself and only through port 8002. If you try to access the administration pages on the external (DMZ) server by using http://<server>/mpweb/admin/, the system will display a 404 "Page Not Found" error.
      To access the administration pages for the external (DMZ) server, you must be on the web server box and enter the following URL: http://localhost:8002/mpweb/admin/
      Note: If SSL is enabled on your system, you must still enter the URL with http and not https.
      The system automatically logs you in as the user called "technician" with technician privileges.
  2. Enter your System Manager-level user ID and password on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing home page.
  3. Click Sign In Now.
    If you are on an external Web Server, the administrative page appears automatically.
    If you are on an internal Web Server, the Welcome page appears with your name displayed at the top.
  4. (If you are on an internal Web Server) Click Admin to access the administrative page.
  5. Click Web Server.
  6. Click the name of the Web Server that you want to configure from the View section of the page.
  7. Enter the FQDN of the primary network interface on the Web Server, for example, hostname.domain.com for Hostname [Home Page]. Note the following considerations:
    • To use SSL, you must enter the FQDN.
    • This hostname must be resolvable by its intended users.
  8. Enter the FQDN of the secondary network interface on the Web Server, for example, hostnamewc.domain.com for Hostname [Web Conferencing]. Note the following considerations:
    • To use SSL, you must enter the FQDN.
    • This hostname must be resolvable by its intended users.
  9. Click Submit.
  10. Click Admin to access the administrative page.
  11. Click Reboot Server to reboot the server.
  12. Click OK.

Testing the Web Server Home Page Connection

Confirm that the Web Server can resolve itself using the hostname configured on the Web Server administrative page. This is also the hostname that end users use to connect to this web server.


Do one of the following:

  • From the Web Server, use a web browser to connect to http://hostname.domain.com, the Fully Qualified Domain Name, or FQDN, of the Web Server.
  • If the Web Server is not in a Domain Name Server (DNS), use a web browser to connect to an IP address from the Web Server.
    If the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing home page appears, the connection is successful.



Testing the Meeting Console Connection

Procedure
  1. From an end-user system, open a web browser and enter the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing URL in the address field.
  2. Sign in by using your System Manager-level user ID and password.
  3. Click Schedule Meeting on the Welcome page.
  4. Fill in your meeting details on the New Meeting scheduling page.
  5. Click Schedule.
  6. Return to the Welcome page.
  7. Enter the meeting ID of the meeting you just scheduled.
  8. Click Attend Meeting.
  9. Confirm that the meeting console loads properly.
