Configuring a Pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System

Note: The necessary cables should already be attached to the transition modules on the back of your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server. If they are not, see Connecting the Cables to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8100 Series.


Before using the blade command to configure a pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system, you must understand the assumptions in Table: Blade Command Assumptions for Pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Systems. If your installation does not match these assumptions, you must customize the configuration by using the blade command's second option that allows you to modify the blade.

To Configure a Pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System
  1. Determine the settings you will make. See About a Pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System.
  2. If you do not already have terminal logging turned on, turn it on. For information, see Logging Your HyperTerminal Session.
  3. At the tech$ prompt, enter blade -i number_of_IP_ports . This is the command for a pure IP Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.
  4. Confirm the blade command by entering y .
    The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system tells you what it is configuring. The tech$ prompt appears when the configuration is complete. See the following example:
    meetingplace:tech$ blade -i <# IP ports>
    This will reset many DB tables, are you sure? (y/n): y
    Configuring "X" IP ports
    Restart the system for changes to take effect
    meetingplace:tech$
  5. Verify your configuration by entering blade .
  6. Confirm the screen output is correct for your configuration.
  7. Modify the blade by entering 2 . A prompt for the blade slot to modify appears, as shown in the following example:
    Enter command: 2
    Enter blade slot [1.. 16 ]: 16

    DSCP / DiffServ [unused]:
    RTCP Interval [default]:
    Note: The preceding example is for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112. For a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106, the blade slot being configured is slot 6, the number of ports is 120, and the first port is 0. Also, the value for the IP address [1] field for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106 is 0.0.0.0. The bold line in the preceding example (Base UDP Port [1]) only appears for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112. This line does not appear in the code for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106.
  8. Modify a blade by entering its slot number. In this configuration, for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112, it is slot 16 so enter 16 . For the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106, it is slot 6, so enter 6 .
  9. Continue pressing Enter until you are prompted to enter the IP address.
  10. Enter the IP address. For an MP-MA-4, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system prompts you for one IP address. For an MP-MA-16, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system prompts you for two IP addresses. If you are using fewer than 240 ports on an MP-MA-16, leave the second IP address as 0.0.0.0.
  11. Continue pressing Enter and verify the default settings are correct for this installation. If your installation calls for values other than the defaults, make the necessary changes.
    Note: The value for the Base UDP Port fields must be divisible by 10 or you will get an error.
    The following shows an example of how to use the blade command to configure an IP Precedence value of 5 and a ToS value of 0. Notice that DSCP is disabled.
    Note: This configuration must be done for each Multi Access Blade used in a pure IP configuration.

Configuring 480 IP Ports (Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106 Only) Example

Note: Although a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8112 can be configured with 480 IP ports, this example is for a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8106 only.

To Configure 480 IP Ports Example
  1. If you do not already have terminal logging turned on, turn it on. For information, see Logging Your HyperTerminal Session.
  2. At the tech$ prompt, enter blade -i 480 .
  3. Confirm the blade command by entering y .
    The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system responds by telling you how many ports it is configuring. When the tech$ prompt appears, it is complete. See the following example:
    meetingplace:tech$ blade -i 480
    This will reset many DB tables, are you sure? (y/n): y

Setting IP Codec Configuration

This section only needs to be completed if your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system uses IP ports.

To Set IP Codec Configuration
  1. Install and configure the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP Gateway. See Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway, Release 5.3.
  2. If you do not already have terminal logging turned on, turn it on. For information, see Logging Your HyperTerminal Session.
  3. Log in to the CLI as a technician.
  4. Enter restart .
  5. Confirm that you want to restart the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system by entering y .
  6. After the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system has finished restarting (about five minutes), launch the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP Gateway service running on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP Gateway machine. See Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP IP Gateway, Release 5.3 for information on how to launch the service.
  7. Log in to the CLI as a technician.
  8. Verify that the software is up by entering swstatus . See the example in step 9 of Setting the Date and Time for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 8100 Series.
  9. Verify that the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace H.323/SIP Gateway service is up by entering gwstatus . See the following example:
    meetingplace:tech$ gwstatus

In the preceding example, G.711 mu-law is given the highest priority and G.711 A-law is given the next highest priority. G.729 is unused. These are the default settings. If you need other settings, use the setipcodec command to change them.
    Note: If your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system uses multiple codecs, enable and test each one individually. Then enable all of them with the correct priority, and test again.
  13. Continue pressing Enter to accept the default for the remaining settings.
  14. Try to place an IP call in to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system. If the call is successful, the configuration is complete.
    If the call is not successful, use the following commands: (These commands produce logs that give you information about why the call failed.) If you still cannot determine the reason for failure, contact Cisco TAC.
