Release Notes for Cisco WebEx Meetings Server

These release notes describe new features, requirements, restrictions, and caveats for all versions of Cisco WebEx Meetings Server. This version of the release notes describes Cisco WebEx Meetings Server version 1.0 (Build 1.0.1.6.A) and version 1.0 Patch 1 (Build 1.0.1.157.A). These release notes are updated for every maintenance release but not for patches or hot fixes. Before you install Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, we recommend that you review this document for information about issues that may affect your system.

To access the latest software upgrades for all versions of Cisco WebEx Meetings Server, go to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=284467417&release=1.0(0)&relind=AVAILABLE&flowid=35322&softwareid=284536950&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Finding Documentation

System Requirements

Refer to Cisco WebEx Meetings Server System Requirements, Release 1.0 at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/collaboration/CWMS/b_System_Requirements.pdf.

Deployment Notes

Consider the following when deploying your Cisco WebEx Meetings Server system:

  • Make sure the network connection between your VMware vCenter and vSphere client is on a stable connection with at least a 1 GB link and low latency.
  • If your VMware vSphere client is installed on your laptop and you are working remotely, upload the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server OVA file onto a local network segment.
  • Since the speed of your network determines how long the deployment process takes, we recommend that you have at least a 1 GB network. For 250- and 800-user systems we recommend a 10 GB network.
  • Cisco WebEx Meetings Server is designed for a single data center. Please make sure the network latency on your network is as low as possible.

Supported Firmware

Supported firmware includes:
  • UCS Manager 2.0(t)
  • UCS blade servers
    • Bios S5500.86B.01.00.0036-191.061320091126
    • Adapter 2.0(t)
    • CIMC 2.0(t)
  • UCS Chassis
    • IO module: 2.0(t)
  • Fabric interconnect
    • 5.0(3)N2(2.1t)

Software Updates and Patches

We strongly recommend that you upgrade to the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server 1.0 patch before using this product. The patch improves the product's stability, provides access to all features, and resolves several issues that are present in version 1.0. See "Resolved Caveats" for the full list of issues that the patch resolves. The Cisco WebEx Meetings Server patch is available at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=284467417&flowid=36422&softwareid=284536950&release=1.0(1)&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Limitations and Restrictions

Recording Limitations

Your storage server is configured to store approximately six months of recordings. Periodically, you should archive any recordings to other media if your organization requires that you keep recordings for more than six months.

Your system performs two tasks to maintain recording space:
  • After six months it deletes recordings set for deletion by your users.
  • It deletes recordings set for deletion before six months if your recordings exceed a certain threshold during a three-month period.

When a user deletes a recording, it is no longer available from the user interface but it is maintained in storage for six months. Therefore, you can still access the storage server to copy, back up, or use the recording files for six months after they have set for deletion by the user.

Each meeting recording is approximately 50–100 MB and with 1 TB of space allocated for recording storage, your system should have room for six months of recordings with standard usage. However, if the recordings on your system consume over 75 percent of the allocated space after three months, the system automatically deletes the first 10 files that have been set for deletion by the user.

For example, if a user deletes two files today, and then five files tomorrow, and then nine files the day after tomorrow, and then storage usage surpasses the 75% limit after 3 months, the system deletes the first two files today, the next five files tomorrow, and then the first three files deleted the day after tomorrow.

Important Notes

Hypervisor Support

Cisco WebEx Meetings Server runs on VMware vCenter virtual machines. For information on supported versions, refer to the System Requirements. Cisco WebEx Meetings server does not support other hypervisors.

System Behavior upon Component Failure

When specific media and platform components running on a virtual machine go down, these components are automatically restarted by the system. Affected meetings fail over to other available resources in the same or another virtual machine in the system (for other than a standalone 50 user system).

HA Systems

With the deployment of a HA system (added to the primary system), Cisco WebEx Meetings Server will recover for these components when there is a single component failure:

  • A single service on one virtual machine.
  • A virtual machine.
  • A single physical server or blade, which hosts up to two virtual machines (as long as the virtual machine layout conforms to the specifications listed in the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server System Requirements and the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server Planning Guide).
  • A single network link, assuming the network is provisioned in a fully redundant manner.
  • A single CUCM node, assuming CUCM is provisioned in a redundant manner.

Following the single component failure, the Cisco WebEx Meetings Server system behaves as follows:

  • For a period of up to three minutes, application sharing, audio voice connection using computer and video may be interrupted. The Cisco WebEx Meetings Server allows three minutes for the failure to be detected and to reconnect all the affected meeting clients automatically. Users should not need to close their clients and rejoin their meeting.
  • Some failures may cause teleconferencing audio connections to drop. If that happens, users will need to reconnect manually. Reconnection should succeed within a two-minute window.
  • For some failures, not all clients and meetings may be affected. Meeting connections are normally redistributed across multiple virtual machines and hosts.

Additional Information For a 2000 User System

A 2000 user system provides some high availability functionality without the addition of a HA system. For a 2000 user system without high availability:

  • Loss of any one of the Web or Media virtual machines results in a still functioning system, but with impaired capacity.
  • However, loss of the Admin virtual machine renders the system unusable.

For a 2000 user system with high availability:

  • Loss of any one virtual machine (Admin, Media, or Web) does not affect the system behavior; the system continues to function with full capacity. Loss of any one physical server (hosting the primary virtual machines [Admin and Media or Web and Media] or the HA virtual machines [Admin and Media or Web]) still results in a running system with full capacity.
  • When the failed virtual machine is restarted, it rejoins the system and the system will return to a normal working state.
  • When a Media virtual machine fails, meetings hosted on that server are briefly interrupted, but the meeting fails over to an alternate Media virtual machine. Users must manually rejoin the desktop audio and video sessions.
  • When a Web virtual machine fails, existing web sessions hosted on that virtual machine also fail. Users must sign in to the WebEx site again and establish a new browser session that will be hosted on an alternate Web virtual machine.
  • When an Admin virtual machine fails, any existing administrator sessions also fail. Administrators must sign in again to the Administration site and establish a new browser session that will be hosted on the alternate Admin virtual machine. Also, there may be a brief interruption to any existing administrator or end user meeting sessions.

Configuring Your High-Availability System

When you update a high-availability system, after you reboot the system and the reboot process appears to be complete, we recommend that you wait an additional 15 minutes before starting your add high-availability system procedure.

    Known Issues and Notices

    The following sections contain Cisco WebEx Meetings Server known issues and notices.

    Keeping Your Hostname While Changing Your Virtual IP Address

    Never change the DNS entries for the hostnames that are configured in your deployment. You can change the hostname of a virtual machine that is part of your deployment. The corresponding IP address is picked up automatically from the DNS. If you want to change the IP address of a virtual machine and keep the same hostname, you must perform the following steps:

    1. Configure a temporary hostname in the DNS.
    2. Change the hostname of the virtual machine to the temporary hostname that you configured and take the system out of maintenance mode for the new hostname to take effect. Your original hostname is not part of the deployment after making this change.
    3. Change the IP address of the original hostname in the DNS to the new IP address.
    4. Change the temporary hostname of the virtual machine to the original hostname and take the system out of maintenance mode for the hostname to take effect. Now the original hostname with your new IP address is configured.

    FQDN Text

    When you deploy virtual machines from vCenter using the OVA file, make sure the virtual machine hostname does not contain uppercase characters or underscores. When changing the hostname at the Administration site also make sure the virtual machine hostname does not contain uppercase characters or underscores.

    Support Information

    The end-user online help contains inaccurate browser support information. Refer to the System Requirements for the correct information.

    Dashboard Issues

    On the Meeting Status page under Monthly Reports, when you display data for the last month, the text under the graph incorrectly indicates that "Problems were experienced in x% of meetings in the last three months." It should read "Problems were experienced in x% of meetings in the last month."

    Audio Configuration

    On your audio configuration settings, note that G.711 will yield better voice quality than G.729. Refer to "About Configuring Your Audio Settings" in the Administration Guide for more information.

    IP Communicator 7.0.x Endpoints

    IP communicator 7.0.x endpoints joining Cisco WebEx Meetings Server meetings might introduce audio quality issues (echo and other noises) to a conference if it is in unmated state or the participant using this endpoint becomes an active speaker. To prevent this, make sure you fine tune the IP communicator environment (for example, the headset, microphone, and speaker) or use a different traditional phone.

    Documentation Errata

    Importing, Exporting, and Deactivating Users

    This section describes errata in the online help pertaining to importing, exporting, and deactivating users. Refer to "User Management" in the online help and the Administration Guide for the affected sections.

    "About Comma- and Tab-Delimited Files" and "Setting Import File Field Values" Sections

    The "About Comma- and Tab-Delimited Files" and "Setting Import File Field Values" online help topics are subtopics of "Deactivating Users." However, both topics are pertinent to all import and export user tasks, not just deactivating users.

    The USERID Field in Comma- and Tab-Delimited Files

    The topic "About Comma- and Tab-Delimited Files" says that the USERID field "must be left blank" when importing. This is true if you are creating new users, but it is incorrect if you are making changes to existing users.

    Deactivating Users by Using the Import Feature

    The section, "Deactivating Users," does not state that you can use the import feature to deactivate users. To deactivate users by using import, you must first export to a .csv file. This gets you the USERID field, which the system uses to identify the records you will change when you perform your import. You must build your import .csv file including the following changes:

    • Change the ACTIVE column to N for the users you want to deactivate.
    • Remove the records for the users that you do not want to change.

    Perform your import. If you do not perform these steps, your import will fail for the changed users with the error "email address already exists."

    Installing New Licenses

    The online help does not describe which actions require the installation of new licenses.

    Actions that Require New Licenses

    The following system-altering actions require that you install new licenses. For more information on installing licenses, refer to "Managing Licenses" in the Administration Guide.

    • Expansion—Refer to "Expanding Your System to a Larger System Size" in the Administration Guide for more information.
    • Upgrade—Refer to "Upgrading the System" in the Administration Guide for more information.
    • Disaster Recovery—Refer to "Using the Disaster Recovery Feature" in the Administration Guide for more information.

    Localization

    In the localized versions of the online help, there are minor issues: grammar inconsistencies and minor spacing and formatting errors. However, the content is complete and matches the English online help.

    Meeting Trend Time Display

    The description of Meeting Trend data is not accurate. Refer to "Using Your Dashboard" in the online help and the Administration Guide for the affected sections.

    Meeting Trend Data

    The description of the Meeting Trends graph includes the following statement:

    "Meeting trend data is based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and is therefore not accurately displayed over a 24-hour period. For example, if your system hosts 200 meetings during a given day, the database records the occurrence of those meetings based on GMT and not local time."

    This is true for the one-month and six-month views but the one-day and one-week view data are based on the user's time zone.

    Meeting Issues Email Procedure

    When you receive an email indicating that there are issues with meetings, perform the following steps to determine the cause.

    Procedure
      Step 1   Select the link in the meeting issue email that you received.
      Step 2   Sign in to the Administration site.
      Step 3   On the Dashboard, select the Meetings in Progress chart.

      The Meeting Trends page appears.

      Step 4   Select the far right edge of the graph to open a detailed table showing the status of each current meeting.

      You can use the detailed information presented in the table to help determine the cause of the issue described in the email you received.


      Viewing Your Resource History

      The first two items below the network history chart are called "Voice connection using computer" and "Teleconference," rather than "VOIP" and "Phone," as they are described in the "Viewing Your Resource History" section of the online help and Administration Guide.

      Generating and Viewing Reports

      When your system is newly deployed or recently upgraded, there is no data available for any of the reports except the Customized Details Report until the end of the first month. In that case, the Download links and all the other reports described in this section are not available until after the end of the first month. Refer to "Generating and Viewing Reports" in the online help and Administration Guide for more information.
