McAfee VirusScan Enterprise

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace supports the following on the Web Server:

  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise versions 8.0i and later
  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise versions 8.7i and later as included in the McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite

If you install McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i or later, make sure that you uncheck the following settings in the Access Protection Rules (found in the Access Protection Properties window) so that Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web will function properly:

  • Prevent programs registering as a service found in the Common Maximum Protection category
  • Protect Cached files from password and email... (4th Option) in the Anti-virus Maximum Protection category
  • Protect network settings found in the Common Standard Protection category

If you are deploying an SMA-2S configuration, make sure that you also uncheck Prevent HTTP Communication found in the Common Maximum Protection category. Unchecking this setting ensures that the internal site will be able to communicate with the DMZ site.

Directory Service Requirements

Directory Service enables the system to populate and synchronize the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user database with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager user database. The Cisco Unified Communications Manager user database is typically integrated with an LDAP directory, the following of which are supported by Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service:

  • Microsoft Windows Active Directory 2000
  • Microsoft Windows Active Directory 2003
  • Microsoft Windows Active Directory Windows 2008
  • Netscape Directory Server Version 4.x
  • iPlanet Directory Server Version 4.x
  • SunONE Directory Server Version 5.1
  • Sun Java Version 5.2
  • Novell eDirectory Release 4.x, 5.x, 6.x
    Note: Novell eDirectory requires a custom configuration. See for information about Novell eDirectory Release 4.x and for information about Novell eDirectory Release 5.x and 6.x.

License Requirements

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace requires licenses depending on the features you use. For a list of all the licenses, see About Licenses.

Reservationless Single Number Access (RSNA) Requirements

  • To use Cisco Unified MeetingPlace with RSNA, you must use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1.3 or later.
  • A maximum of two Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 systems may be deployed with the RSNA configuration with no Application Server redundancy at this time.
  • A single Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster must be configured to process both inbound and outdial calls to both Cisco Unified MeetingPlace RSNA systems. If the RSNA systems are in different locations, they share an IP address and hostname for database replication and the same VLAN must be configured to work in both data sites.
  • Web conferencing may be used with RSNA, but Cisco does not recommend it because the Web Servers connected to the two RSNA Application Servers operate independently.  Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing URLs will be different on the two RSNA systems.  Accessing the wrong URL will result in the meeting not being found.  It is up to the System Administrator to make sure users know which web conferencing server to access for their meetings.  Meetings are accessed on a web server using the profile number of the host user.
  • The following maximum ports are possible:
    • 3000 audio (1500 on each system in the high capacity mode)
    • 2000 Web (1000 on each system)
    • 240 or 480 video (160 or 300 on each system) if the system has 12 (2x6) audio blades and 12 (2x6) video blades
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace RSNA does not currently support Cisco WebEx.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Conference Manager Requirements


  • Sun Java JRE 6 update 16 and update 18 are not supported. Prior versions (updates) are supported. Later versions (updates) are supported if latest Conference Manager hotfix is installed.
