Information for Partners about Cisco MediaSense Deployments

See High-level Checklist for Design and Implementation.

VM-Specific Cisco MediaSense Hardware Requirements

See Unified Computing System Hardware.

Before you install the Cisco MediaSense software in any server, you must address the following requirements:

  • Only Cisco MediaSense must be running on this VM host. No other product can be installed on this server.
  • If you are performing a fresh install of Cisco MediaSense in any deployment, be sure to verify that the virtual machine is also fresh (no previously-installed OS is present in the VM).

Cisco MediaSense-Specific Details for VMware Requirements

See Unified Communications VMWare Requirements

Cisco UCS C-Series Servers, Cisco MediaSense ISO, ESXi 4.0 must be installed prior to the Cisco MediaSense installation.

Cisco MediaSense, Release 8.5(1)

All Cisco MediaSense servers run on VMs using the Unified Communications Operating System (Unified OS or UCOS).

Note Note: If you are using ESXi 4.1, be sure to disable Large Receive Offload (LRO) on the ESXi 4.1 host.

To disable LRO, follow this procedure:

  1. Log into the ESXi host or its vCenter with vSphere Client.
  2. Select the host > Configuration > Advanced Settings.
  3. Select Net and scroll down slightly more than half way.
  4. Set the following parameters from 1 to 0:
    • Net.VmxnetSwLROSL
    • Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO
    • Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO
    • Net.Vmxnet2SwLRO
    • Net.Vmxnet2HwLRO
  5. Reboot the ESXi host to activate these changes.

VM-Specific Cisco MediaSense Software Requirements

See Unified Communications VMWare Requirements.

The following software requirements apply specifically to Cisco MediaSense:

VM-Specific Cisco MediaSense Hardware Requirements
