Complete this procedure to update the Application Server that the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server points to.

Before You Begin
  • In this procedure, we refer to the Web Server as a "unit."
  • Stop the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Service and Gateway SIM Service. If other Web Servers share the database with this server, stop the services on those servers as well.
