Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express, Release 2.x



If you purchase license SKUs with your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express order, then your order comes with a Product Authorization Key (PAK). You obtain a license file by providing the PAK and the MAC address of your server in a form on Cisco.com. Through the Administration Center, you upload the license file to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express to install all purchased licenses in that order.


Note: The new licenses take affect immediately. You do not need to reinstall or restart the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system and application when you add licenses.
