For information about managing your system images and configuration files, see the Cisco IOS XE Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide, Release 2, and the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference publications that correspond to your Cisco IOS XE software release.

Prerequisites

Complete the following prerequisites to successfully activate your Cisco WebEx Node for ASR 1000 Series:

Registering with the WebEx Data Center and the Cisco WebEx Node Management System

To successfully activate a Cisco WebEx Node for ASR 1000 Series, certain registration and provisioning activities must be performed with the WebEx Data Center using the Cisco WebEx Node Management System. The Cisco WebEx Node Management System also provides monitoring and reporting for Cisco WebEx nodes.

Once the SPA is registered with the WebEx Data Center, certain node security information must be gathered and then configured on the Cisco WebEx Node for ASR 1000 Series.


Note Registering your Cisco WebEx Node SPA and establishing an account in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System are two separate activities. If you are responsible for the management of Cisco WebEx Node SPAs for your enterprise, then it is likely that you will also acquire an account in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System application. Otherwise, you will work with your enterprise WebEx administrator to exchange the appropriate information to properly provision your Cisco WebEx Node SPA with the WebEx Data Center and configure it locally at the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.



Note For details about working with the Cisco WebEx Node Management System, see the Cisco WebEx Node Management System Administrator’s Guide.


Obtaining an Account in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System

If you will be monitoring and maintaining Cisco WebEx Node SPAs for your enterprise, then you will need to obtain an account in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System.

Consider the following important information about Cisco WebEx Node Management System accounts:

  • You must change your password within 90 days. If you do not change your password, your account will move to “Inactive” status.
  • If you do not successfully log in to the Cisco WebEx Node Management System after three attempts, the account moves to “Locked” status.

To acquire an account in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Contact your Cisco WebEx administrator with the following information to set up your initial account information:


Note The first account associated with a Cisco WebEx Node SPA will already have the organization name automatically created by the WebEx provisioning team.


  • User name—This name should be unique per organization.
  • Password—Must contain at least 8 characters, a minimum of one mixed-case letters, and a minimum of one number. Your Cisco WebEx administrator will assign an initial password that you can change after logging into your account.
  • Email address

Step 2 Once your Cisco WebEx Node Management System account is created, you can log in to the application by going to the following URL:

https://wma.webex.com

Step 3 On the login page for the Cisco WebEx Node Management System, enter your username and temporary password in the appropriate boxes.


Note You can obtain login assistance by submitting your email address and your login information will be sent to you.


Step 4 From the Account List page, go to the Edit Account page to change your password by checking the box next to your user account and click the pencil icon to access your account information page.

Step 5 On the Edit Account page, click the Change Password link to open the Change Password dialog box.

Step 6 In the Change Password dialog box, enter your old password and new password in the corresponding fields and click OK .

Registering a Cisco WebEx Node SPA in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System

This section describes the information required to perform initial activation of your Cisco WebEx Node SPA in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System.


Note This task must be performed by a registered Cisco WebEx Node Management user. This could be someone in the role of a Cisco WebEx administrator for your enterprise, or multiple individuals responsible for Cisco WebEx Node management for your enterprise.



Step 1 To register and provision your Cisco WebEx Node for the ASR 1000 Series, contact your Cisco WebEx administrator with the following information to register your Cisco WebEx Node SPA with the WebEx Data Center:

  • Company name
  • Phone number (this number uniquely identifies a customer location, not a actual number for contacting)
  • Site name (for example, cisco.webex.com)
  • SPA serial number (use the show diag [all | chassis | slot | subslot] eeprom command to view the serial number of the WebEx SPA, for example, router# show diag subslot 0/1 eeprom detail )
  • Assigned hostname
  • Conferencing mode (either web conferencing or voice and video conferencing)

Step 2 After the Cisco WebEx Node SPA is registered in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System, obtain the following information from the Node Information page for the SPA in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System:

  • wma-passcode—Must match the value in the service-engine wma-passcode configuration command on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA.
  • wma-token—Must match the value in the service-engine wma-token configuration command on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA.
  • wma-url—The URL string from the Cisco WebEx Node Management System must be configured on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA using the service-engine wma-url command.

Note This security information must be configured on the Cisco WebEx Node for ASR 1000 Series SPA using the CLI. For more information about configuring the CLI, see the “Configuring the Virtual Service Engine Interface” section.


Completing the Cisco WebEx Node SPA Configuration Prerequisites

Prior to configuring the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, you must ensure that the following tasks are completed:

  • A Cisco IOS XE software image is loaded on your Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router that is compatible with the Cisco WebEx Node SPA. The Cisco WebEx Node SPA provides K9 encryption, and you must also download and install the optional sipspawmak9 subpackage. To complete the installation of the Cisco Webex Node SPA, perform the steps mentioned in the following sections:

Managing and Configuring a Router to Run Using Individual SubPackages From a Consolidated Package

Managing and Configuring a Router to Run Using Optional SubPackages

For more information about Cisco IOS XE package compatibility and installation instructions, see the Consolidated Packages and Sub-Package Management chapter of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Software Configuration Guide .

  • After the router is configured to run using individual subpackages, download and install the webex sipspawmak9 subpackage. Use the request platform software package install rp rp-slot-number file storage-device:sipspa-package-name command in the privileged EXEC mode or the diagnostic mode to upgrade the SIPSPA subpackage. For example:
router# request platform software package install rp 0 file bootflash:asr1000rp1-sipspawmak9.2011-11-23_09.34_cmaddine.pkg.
  • A DNS entry for the IP address is assigned to each Cisco WebEx Node SPA.
  • An IP address is allocated for the Cisco IOS XE interface configuration on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router side.
  • An IP address is also allocated for the internal interface configuration on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA side.
  • The IP address that is allocated for the Cisco IOS XE interface configuration on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router side and the IP address that is allocated for the internal interface configuration on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA side must be on the same subnet.
  • Verify that certain WebEx Data Center servers (such as the Cisco WebEx Data Center SSL gateway and the Cisco WebEx Node Management server) are reachable and not blocked from access by the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router. If access to these servers is blocked, then the Cisco WebEx Node SPA might not activate properly.

Configuration Tasks

This section describes how to configure the Cisco WebEx Node for ASR 1000 Series and includes information about verifying the configuration.

It includes the following topics:

Specifying the Service Engine Interface Address on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA

To configure or monitor SPA interfaces, you need to specify the physical location of the SIP, SPA, and interface in the CLI. The interface address format is slot/subslot/port , where:

  • slot—Specifies the chassis slot number in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers where the SIP is installed.
  • subslot—Specifies the subslot of the SIP where the SPA is installed.
  • port—Specifies the number of the individual interface port, which is virtual and always 0 on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA.

The following example shows how to specify the service engine interface on a Cisco WebEx Node SPA installed in the first subslot of a SIP (0) installed in chassis slot 2:

Router(config)# interface service-engine 2/0/0
 

For more information about identifying slots and subslots, see the “Identifying Slots and Subslots for the SIPs and SPAs” section.

Configuring the Virtual Service Engine Interface

Configuration of the Cisco WebEx Node SPA begins with the setup of a virtual service engine interface. This Cisco IOS XE virtual interface is created to allow services running on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA to communicate through the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router with the Internet. The interface simulates a 2.5-GB Ethernet interface and facilitates the connection between the Cisco WebEx Data Center and Cisco WebEx clients.

A service-engine interface on the Cisco WebEx Node SPA has two IP addresses:

  • Router-side IP address—Configured with the ip address command. The IP address on the router side acts like a gateway to the WebEx services running on the SPA side.
  • Internal SPA interface IP address—Configured with the service-engine ip address command.

Virtual Service-Engine Interface Configuration Guidelines

To successfully configure the virtual service-engine interface, complete the following guidelines:

  • The Network Address Translation (NAT) must be configured to convert the private address of the service engine to the public address.
  • The router-side IP address must be configured using the ip address command.
  • The service-engine IP address must be on the same subnet as the router-side IP address for the service-engine interface (configured using the ip address command.)
  • The service-engine ip address command must be configured before you configure the service-engine default-gateway command.
  • The service-engine default-gateway IP address must match the router-side IP address.

Note Before you can configure the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, you must shut down the service-engine interface using the shutdown interface configuration command. To activate the service-engine interface, use the no shutdown command.


 

Command
Purpose

Step 1

Router(config)# ip nat inside source static private-ip-address public-ip- address

Enables the NAT of the inside source address, which converts the private address of the service engine to the public address.

  • private-ip-address —The IP address of the service engine.
  • public ip-address —The public IP address that has Domain Name System (DNS) to register the Cisco Webex Node SPA in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System. The DNS name of the public IP address is the hostname of the Cisco Webex Node SPA.

Specifies the IP address for the service engine default gateway.

command for the router-side IP address.

Step 6

Router(config-if)# service-engine nameserver name-server1-ip-address name-server2-ip-address

Specifies the primary and secondary domain name server that will be used by the WebEx Node SPA, where:

  • name-server1-ip-address —Specifies the IP address of the primary domain name server.
  • name-server2-ip-address —Specifies the IP address of the secondary domain nameserver.

Step 7

Router(config-if)# service-engine hostname module-side-hostname module-side-domain-name

Specifies the host name and domain name given to the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, where:

  • module-side-hostname —Specifies the host name of the service engine interface. The default host name is “service-spa.”
  • module-side-domain-name —Specifies the domain name of the service engine interface.
Note The domain name must be assigned as a preliminary step. See the “Registering with the WebEx Data Center and the Cisco WebEx Node Management System” section.

Step 8

Router(config-if)# service-engine wma-url url-string

Specifies the URL provided by registration and provisioning of the SPA in the Cisco WebEx Node Management System.

For more information, see the “Registering with the WebEx Data Center and the Cisco WebEx Node Management System” section.

Note Because the passcode is encrypted, the output will not reveal the configured token or passcode.


What To Do Next

Verify the configuration in the “Verifying the Service Engine Configuration” section.

Saving the Configuration

To save your running configuration to nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM), use the following command in privileged EXEC configuration mode:

 

Command
Purpose

Router# copy running-config startup-config

Writes the new configuration to NVRAM.

For more information about managing your system images and configuration files, see the Cisco IOS XE Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide, Release 2 and Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference publications that correspond to your Cisco IOS XE software release.

Shutting Down and Removing the Cisco WebEx Node SPA

Because the Cisco WebEx Node SPA has a hard disk drive (HDD), it is necessary to shut down gracefully before physically removing the SPA from the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router. This action allows the operating system to unmount the file system and put the HDD in standby mode to prevent data corruption or physical damage to the HDD.

The Cisco WebEx Node SPA can be shut down in one of two ways:

  • You can use the hw-module subslot stop command to gracefully shut down the SPA before physically removing the hardware from the chassis. To shut down the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, use the following command in EXEC mode:
  • Command
    Purpose

    Router# hw-module subslot slot / subslot stop

    Shuts down the Cisco WebEx Node SPA located in the slot and subslot locations indicated.

  • You can use the Shutdown button located on the left side of the faceplate. Use the tip of a pen or other similar blunt object to press the button.

Once the shutdown operation is initiated by either method, the SYS LED starts to blink (green) to indicate the shutdown operation is in progress. Once the shutdown operation is completed, the SYS LED turns off to show that the SPA can now be removed.


Caution Make sure to wait until the SYS LED turns off before removing the SPA.

The following example shows the use of the hw-module subslot stop command:

Router# hw-module subslot 0/0 stop
ASR1004#
*Feb 18 12:37:32.260:%SPA_OIR-6-OFFLINECARD: SPA (SPA-WMA-K9) offline in subslot 0/0
*Feb 18 12:37:32.260:%ASR1000_OIR-6-SOFT_STOPSPA: SPA(SPA-WMA-K9) stopped in subslot 0/0, interfaces disabled

Verifying the Service Engine Configuration

There are several commands that provide current information and status of the Cisco WebEx Node SPA, service engine, and other components.

Showing Cisco WebEx Node SPA Settings and Activity

You can use the show interfaces service-engine command to display Cisco WebEx Node SPA configuration settings and current activity. After configuration, make sure that the service-engine interface is “up” and the line protocol is “up” as shown in the following example:

Router# show interfaces service-engine 1/0/0
Service-Engine0/1/0 is up, line protocol is up
Hardware is SPA-WMA-K9, address is 001f.6c25.bd10 (bia 001f.6c25.bd10)

0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

Showing Service Engine Status

To show service engine status including a listing of the applications that are active, use the show hw-module subslot service-engine status command as shown in the following example:

Router# show hw-module subslot 1/0 service-engine status
Service Engine is Cisco SPA-WMA-K9
Service Engine state: Steady (0x300)
Service Engine OS Version: 1.0.0, Application Version: 1.0.0
 
Application: WebEx Node (Web Conferencing)
Application Status: Online
Configuration:
Int ip address: 10.200.72.18 , mask: 255.255.255.252
GW ip address: 10.200.72.17
Nameserver 1: 10.100.4.10 , Nameserver 2: 10.100.4.20
Hostname: spawma1, Domain name: cisco.com
WMA URL - https://wmabts.webex.com/wmams
WMA Token - 45484b3e-8ea5-41e5-b050-49409006d14e
WMA Passcode Name - cisco_test, key:0552055C271A4B5C4D5D424A5B5E007F

Note Since the passcode and token are encrypted, the actual content is not displayed.


Verify that the service engine is reported in “Steady” state, and the Application Status is “Online.” If the Application Status is “Online,” then verify that the indicated operation mode (“Web Conferencing” or “Voice and Video Conferencing”) is correct. If not, contact Cisco WebEx Technical Support to correct the problem.

If the Application Status field is “Offline” then the operation mode (indicated in parenthesis in "Application" field) will show that it is not configured, as shown in the following sample output:

Router# show hw-module subslot 1/0 service-engine status
Service Engine is Cisco SPA-WMA-K9
Service Engine state: Steady (0x300)
Service Engine OS Version: 1.0.0, Application Version: 1.0.0
 
Application: WebEx Node (operation mode not configured)
Application Status: Offline
 

This occurs when the connection to the Cisco WebEx Data Center fails, and therefore provisioning information about the operation mode can not be retrieved. For more information about provisioning, see the “Registering with the WebEx Data Center and the Cisco WebEx Node Management System” section. For additional troubleshooting information, refer to Chapter1, “Troubleshooting the Cisco WebEx Node for the ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers”

Configuring the WebEx Node

The security patch for the WebEx Node has been integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 3.8.2 and Cisco IOS XE Release 3.9.1S. To install the security patch, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers and the WebEx SPA modules need to be upgraded to either Cisco IOS XE Release 3.8.2 or Cisco IOS XE Release 3.9.1S.

You can only install the WebEx Node subpackage when the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router is rebooted in the subpackage mode.

If the router is already booted up in the subpackage mode with the required release (3.08.02 or 3.09.01), copy the optional subpackage (sipspawma) pertaining to the same release in the same directory in which the subpackages are stored, and then install the same optional subpackage (sipspawma). In this case, no router reload is necessary.

If the router is started with a consolidated image of any release, or is started in the subpackage mode with a release that is different from the required release, copy the required consolidated image (3.08.02 or 3.09.01) in an appropriate media, create and install the subpackages from the consolidated image to bootflash, copy the optional subpackage (sipspawma) in the same directory in bootflash, and reload the system in the subpackage mode. After the router is up and running, install the optional subpackage (sipspawma).

For more information, see the “C onsolidated Packages and Sub-Package Management” and “Software Upgrade Process” chapters in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers Software Configuration Guide.

Configuring the WebEx Node Using a USB Memory Stick as a Backup

To use this method, we recommend that you to use a 4-GB USB memory stick as a backup device.


Note If you do not want to create a backup with a USB memory device, a backup can be created through a bootflash.


Perform the following steps to configure the WebEx Node using a USB memory stick as a backup in Cisco IOS XE Release 3.8.2:


Step 1 Download the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Router software from: http://software.cisco.com/download/navigator.html?mdfid=281716314&flowid=1362
