Setting Up Clusters
Prime Collaboration manages
the following clusters:
Cisco TelePresence Manager
Cisco Unified CM
If you are using more than
one Cisco TelePresence Manager (CTS-Manager), or Cisco TelePresence Management
Suite (TMS) in your network, you must configure these applications in a cluster
for the Prime Collaboration application to manage; that is, Prime Collaboration
cannot manage two standalone CTS-Manager, or TMS.
Prime Collaboration monitors
only the application servers. It does not monitor the database instances.
Health polling is performed for all the CTS-Manager, or Cisco TMS application
servers in the clusters.
For CTS-Manager or TMS
clusters, the session details are imported from the primary CTS-Manager or
Cisco TMS as defined on the Manage Clusters page.
Managing Cisco TelePresence Manager, or Cisco TMS
Before discovering Cisco
TelePresence Manager, Cisco TMS, or
clusters, you must enter the cluster details in the Manage Cluster
page. During the discovery of Cisco TelePresence Manager or Cisco TMS, Prime
Collaboration uses the cluster details, along with the device credentials

Perform logical discovery to
discover these clusters. For information on logical discovery, see
Methods. When you are discovering clusters for the first time in your
network, you can enter primary, secondary, hot standby and load-balancer server
details for CTS-MAN and TMS clusters. Later, to update inventory or rediscover,
you can provide only the primary server details of CTS-MAN and TMS clusters.
