Logging in to the CLI Using the Console

The console is the monitor and keyboard that are directly attached to the Cisco MCS server where your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system resides.


You can log in to the CLI from the console using either the mpxadmin user or root user IDs. This is the only way you can log in directly as the root user. You can enter operating system CLI commands here.


Restriction
  • The CLI and its commands are only available in English. The CLI only accepts the standard 128 ASCII characters.


Procedure
  1. Go to the monitor associated with the Cisco MCS server where you installed the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system. The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system login page is displayed.
  2. For the username, enter mpxadmin.
  3. Enter the password for the mpxadmin user. This was established during installation. The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system desktop appears.
  4. Right-click on the desktop and select New Terminal.
    A command window appears. You can start entering commands. This is a Linux operating system so all commands should be either Linux commands or Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system CLI commands. See Running Operating System CLI Commands for information about the operating system CLI commands.
  5. When you are finished with the command window, either enter exit or click the X in the top right corner.
    Note: Always log out of the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system when you are finished.


Logging in to the CLI Using SSH

Only the mpxadmin user can log in to the CLI remotely using SSH. If needed, you can later switch to the root user by entering su.


Restriction
  • The CLI and its commands are only available in English. The CLI only accepts the standard 128 ASCII characters.
