This chapter describes how to pair your Cisco Show and Share and Cisco Digital Media Manager (DMM) appliances after performing a software recovery on one or both appliances.

Pairing Procedure

You must pair your Cisco DMM appliance and your Cisco Show and Share appliances after performing a software upgrade or a software recovery.


Caution Pairing fails when you complete these steps in the wrong order. To succeed, you must use AAI on your Cisco Show and Share appliance before you use AAI on your DMM appliance. You must not reverse this order or try to use AAI simultaneously on both appliances.

Procedure


Step 1 From the appliance that runs Cisco Show and Share 5.2:

a. Log in as admin to the Appliance Administration Interface (AAI).

b. Choose APPLIANCE_CONTROL > PAIR APPLIANCE.

c. Choose DMM.


Warning Do not choose any other option than DMM.


d. Enter the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) for your DMM appliance.

This is the DNS name. Do not enter an IP address.

e. Press Enter.

Your Cisco Show and Share appliance imports a digital certificate from your DMM appliance.

Step 2 From the appliance that runs Digital Media Manager 5.2:

a. Log in as admin to the Appliance Administration Interface (AAI).

b. Choose APPLIANCE_CONTROL > PAIR APPLIANCE.

c. Choose SHOW_AND_SHARE.


Warning Do not choose any other option than SHOW_AND_SHARE.


d. Enter the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) for your Cisco Show and Share appliance.

This is the DNS name. Do not enter an IP address.

e. Press Enter.

Your upgraded DMM appliance imports a digital certificate from your Cisco Show and Share appliance.

Step 3 Stop. You have completed this procedure.
