Preparing to Install the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server Software with SMA-2S

Before installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server software on a system configured for SMA-2S, complete the tasks below.


Task Additional Information

Do the following:

  • Learn about SMA-2S.
  • Determine the licenses that you need for your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.

Read : Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 8.0 -- Planning Your Deployment

Review system requirements.

See : Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0 -- System Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0.

Gather installation values.

See Gathering Installation Values in the Installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server Software module.

Install and configure the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server software on a Cisco MCS. The same Application Server will be used by all the internal and external web servers.

See the Installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server Software module.

Determine if you will install SQL Server locally on each internal and external web server or on remote, standalone servers.

Note: The internal and external web servers must use separate SQL Server instances.

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server software requires SQL Server. You can choose to install SQL Server on the internal and external web servers on which you are installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server software or on remote, standalone servers.


If you install SQL Server on the same server as which you are installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server software, the installation program installs SQL Server 2000 and service pack 4 on your local system automatically; in this case, no pre-installation steps are required.

If you choose to install SQL Server on remote, standalone servers, install both SQL Server 2000 and the appropriate service pack on separate Windows servers before installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Server software.

Check Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0 -- System Requirements for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 8.0 for the required service pack.
