Error Message: Session is Stale

Problem: You see the following error message: Session is stale.

Possible Cause: You signed in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace from a different location than the one you originally used and the system disconnected your first browser connection. If you then go back to the first browser, you will receive a "stale session" notification.

Possible Cause: You signed in to Web Conferencing, but did not participate in the session for over an hour. The system disconnected you to free some room for new users and informs you that your session is stale.

Solution: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing keeps session information about each user who connects to the home page to find, schedule, or update a meeting or configure account settings. The session information is kept for a minimum of one hour from the your last session up to a maximum of 24 hours. Close the connection with the stale session and try to connect again.

Repeated Prompts to Download Adobe Flash Player

Problem: I have already downloaded the Adobe Flash Player and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace is prompting me to download it again.

Solution: If you have multiple browsers installed on your computer, the system will prompt you to download the Adobe Flash Player the first time you use each browser to join the web meeting room.

Cannot Join a Locked Meeting

Problem: I have requested to join a locked meeting but nothing is happening. I know that I am welcome in the meeting.

Solution: See "Requesting Entry to a Locked Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Meeting" in the End User Guide.
