||When the Timezone Configuration displays, select the appropriate time zone for the server and then select OK. |
The Auto Negotiation Configuration window displays.
||The installation process allows you to automatically set the speed and duplex settings of the Ethernet network interface card (NIC) by using automatic negotiation. You can change this setting after installation.|
- To enable automatic negotiation, select Yes and continue with Step 5.
The MTU Configuration window displays.
To use this option, your hub or Ethernet switch must support automatic negotiation.
- To disable automatic negotiation, select No and continue with Step 3.
The NIC Speed and Duplex Configuration window displays.
||If you chose to disable automatic negotiation, manually select the appropriate NIC speed and duplex settings now and select OK to continue. |
The MTU Configuration window displays.
||In the MTU Configuration window, you can change the MTU size from the operating system default. The maximum transmission unit (MTU) represents the largest packet, in bytes, that this host will transmit on the network. If you are unsure of the MTU setting for your network, use the default value, which is 1500 bytes. |
Caution: If you configure the MTU size incorrectly, your network performance can be affected.
- To accept the default value (1500 bytes), select No.
- To change the MTU size from the operating system default, select Yes, enter the new MTU size, and select OK.
The DHCP Configuration window displays.
||For network configuration, you can select to either set up a static network IP address for the node or to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Static IP addresses are recommended. If you select the DHCP option, an IP address is dynamically assigned by the DHCP server.|
- If you have a DHCP server that is configured in your network and want to use DHCP, select Yes. The network restarts, and the Administrator Login Configuration window displays. Skip to Step 8.
- If you want to configure a static IP address for the node, select No. The Static Network Configuration window displays.
||If you chose not to use DHCP, enter your static network configuration values and select OK. See Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager for Node Configuration Data. |
The DNS Client Configuration window displays.
||To enable DNS, select Yes, enter your DNS client information, and select OK. See Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager for information on the field descriptions of node configuration data. |
The network restarts by using the new configuration information, and the Administrator Login Configuration window displays.
||Enter your Platform Administrator login and password. See Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager for information on the field descriptions of node configuration data. |
The Platform Administrator login must start with an alphabetic character, be at least six characters long, and can contain alphanumeric characters, hyphens, and underscores. You will need the Platform Administrator login to log in to Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration, the command line interface, and the Disaster Recovery System.
The Certificate Information window displays.
||Enter your certificate signing request information and select OK.|
||The Network Time Protocol Client Configuration window displays. |
Cisco recommends that you use an external NTP server to ensure accurate system time on the first node. Ensure the external NTP server is stratum 9 or higher (meaning stratums 1-9). Subsequent nodes in the cluster will get their time from the first node.When you install Cisco Unity Connection on a virtual machine, you must specify an external NTP server.
||Choose whether you want to configure an external NTP server or manually configure the system time.|
- To set up an external NTP server, select Yes and enter the IP address, NTP server name, or NTP server pool name for at least one NTP server. You can configure up to five NTP servers, and Cisco recommends that you use at least three. Select Proceed to continue with the installation.
The system contacts an NTP server and automatically sets the time on the hardware clock.
Note: If the Test button displays, you can select Test to check whether the NTP servers are accessible.
- To manually configure the system time, select No and enter the appropriate date and time to set the hardware clock. Select OK to continue with the installation.
The Security Configuration window displays.
||Enter the Security password. See Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager for information on the field descriptions of node configuration data. |
Note: The Security password must start with an alphanumeric character, be at least six characters long, and can contain alphanumeric characters, hyphens, and underscores. The system uses this password to authorize communications between nodes, and you must ensure this password is identical on all nodes in the cluster.
||Select OK. The Application User Configuration window displays.|
||Enter the Application User name and password (see Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager). Enter the password again to confirm.|
||Select OK. The Platform Configuration Confirmation window displays.|
||To continue with the installation, select OK; or to modify the platform configuration, select Back. |
The system installs and configures the software. The DVD drive ejects, and the server reboots. Do not reinsert the DVD.
||When the installation process completes, you are prompted to log in by using the Administrator account and password.|
||Complete the post-installation tasks that are listed in the "Post-Installation Tasks" section.|
||Once complete, a message appears indicating that the Enterprise License Manager install has completed successfully.|
