Testing the Basic Installation

Procedure
  1. At the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system login page, enter the username mpxadmin.
  2. Enter the password associated with this username. The password was set during installation.
    The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express operating system desktop appears.
  3. On the desktop, double-click the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express icon.

The system should bring up the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express application Attend page.


Testing the Connectivity, IP Addresses, and Hostname

Procedure
  1. Go to another computer on the network and open a web browser. In the address field, enter http://ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd, where ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd is the IP address of port 1 (eth0) that you entered when configuring the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express server.
    The browser should display the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express application Attend page.
  2. Go to another computer on a different LAN within the corporate network and open a web browser. In the address field, enter http://ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd, where ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd is the IP address of port 1 (eth0) that you entered when configuring the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express server.
    The browser should display the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express application Attend page. This verifies that there are no subnet configuration or routing problems.
  3. If end users will be allowed to access the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system from external locations, browse from a computer outside your corporate network. This verifies that there are no firewall issues or other external-to-internal connectivity problems.
  4. Test that your system can resolve the hostname. Instead of entering the IP address in Step 1, enter the FQDN address for eth0.
    The browser should display the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express application Attend page.
  5. Start a web meeting to resolve the FQDN of eth1.
    Note: Another way to resolve the hostnames is to ping the FQDN of eth0 and eth1.


Testing the Telephony Network

Note: This section only applies to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express and not to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT. For information on testing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT system, see the Configuration and Maintenance Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x.


You can only test the telephony network if your IP telephony network is already up and running and if your call-control device is configured to route calls to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system. For example, if you are using Cisco Unified Communications Manager (formerly called Cisco Unified CallManager), you must have already added a route pattern for sending calls to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system. For complete information on configuring call-control devices, see the Configuration and Maintenance Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x.


Procedure
  1. Place a call from any phone to the phone number used to access the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system. You should hear the "Welcome to Cisco MeetingPlace Express" prompt.
  2. On the phone, press 1 and then #. You should hear the following prompt: "Enter your profile number followed by the pound key." This ensures that the system received your input.
