Advanced Configuration


Revised June 30, 2011

The Advanced Configuration window in the administration console allows the administrator to define a prefix value for all ISDN guest dial out calls, and to define the external HTTP load-balancing address for the SIP engines, when the ACE is in use within the network.

The following sections describe how to configure these advanced configuration settings:

Configuring an ISDN Dial Out Prefix

When you define an ISDN_DIALOUT_PREFIX value, the system adds a prefix to the beginning of all ISDN dial out calls. For example, if the endpoint number is 4013164407 and the defined ISDN prefix number is 9, then the call will be sent out as 94013164407.

The Cisco VCS call manager references the ISDN prefix to determine whether to send the call to the ISDN gateway. If the configured ISDN prefix does not match the value that is configured within the Cisco VCS, then all ISDN dial outs fail. When the call is sent to the ISDN gateway, the ISDN prefix is removed, restoring the original number.

The system default for the ISDN dial out prefix is 9. The administrator can modify the default ISDN dial out prefix setting when the value of 9 is already in use by another system, or to match a different value that is set in the Cisco VCS.

Procedure

To configure an ISDN dial out prefix other than the system default value of 9, do the following procedure:


Step 1 From the navigation pane, choose Advanced Parameters > Application Parameters.

The Application Parameters window is displayed.

Step 2 Click Add a New Application Parameter.

Step 3 In the entry window that is displayed, enter settings for the ISDN dial out prefix.

Table 25-1 describes the fields.

Step 4 To save your changes, click Save.


Configuring a Meet-Me External HTTP Address

The administrator defines the Meet-Me external HTTP load-balancing address for call engines that employ the ACE for redundancy. Generally, the administrator defines the Meet-Me external HTTP address on the system after installation and in situations in which the IP address of the call engines or the ACE changes.

Procedure

To configure a Meet-Me External HTTP Address, do the following procedure:


Step 1 From the navigation pane, choose Advanced Parameters > Application Parameters.

The Application Parameters window is displayed.

Step 2 Click Add a New Application Parameter.

Step 3 In the entry window that is displayed, enter settings for the Meet-Me External HTTP Address.

Table 25-1 describes the fields.

Step 4 To save your changes, click Save.

Field
Description

Parameter

Drop-down list. Choose the advanced configuration option that you are configuring from the drop-down list. Options are:

ISDN Dialout Prefix

Meet-Me External HTTP Address

Note By default, the ISDN dial out prefix setting is 9. You do not need to modify this value when it matches the setting in the Cisco VCS.

Value

Text field. Enter the prefix number value that the system must append to the number to define the application (such as ISDN call or Meet-Me call).

Note By default, the ISDN dial out prefix setting is 9. There is no need to modify this value when it matches the setting in the Cisco VCS.

Application

Text field. Enter the name of the application (such as ISDN dial out call or Meet-Me call).


Deleting an Application Parameter

Procedure

To delete an application parameter, do the following procedure:


Note At the end of the procedure, you may need to restart the system in order for your changes to take effect.



Step 1 From the navigation pane, choose Advanced Configuration > Application Parameters.

The Application Parameters window is displayed.

Step 2 Do the following sub-steps, depending on your Cisco TelePresence Exchange System version.

Cisco TelePresence Exchange System Release 1.0(3)

Tip If you prefer to view the details of an application parameter prior to deleting it, in the Application Parameters window, you can click the applicable Application Parameter to go to the Application Parameter page. After verifying that you have chosen the correct application parameter to delete, click Delete This Application Parameter, and then in the Deletion Confirmation dialog box, click Delete to confirm the deletion.
