If you configure Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing to use anything other than the MeetingPlace native login form for user authentication, you may not be able to log in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace through the web due to incomplete user authentication configuration. For example, you configured LDAP, then MeetingPlace user authentication, but failed to enter a valid LDAP hostname or to ensure that the LDAP user IDs existed in MeetingPlace. In such circumstances, you are unable to log into Web Conferencing to correct your configuration errors.


To restore access to Web Conferencing, you can do one of the following:

  • Log on to the Web Conferencing server, open a web browser, and browse to http://localhost:8002. You will be logged in as the technician and can access the admin pages to fix the problem.
  • Create or correct the MeetingPlace profile to allow you to log in by using MeetingTime. See Deploying and Using MeetingTime.
  • Edit the SQL database and reset the mode to MeetingPlace native login form. Do the following procedure.
