RAID and BIOS settings

During the software installation, the system installer configures the system BIOS and RAID settings for the new operating system and IM and Presence Service.

See the following tables for the BIOS settings and the RAID settings that are set up during installation. If the hardware configuration process fails during installation, you can use boot-time utilities on both the IBM and HP servers to manually configure the RAID and BIOS settings, as advised in the following tables.

Access Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence Administration

Complete the following procedure to access the Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence Administration interface.

    Step 2   From Administrative Applications, select Cisco Unified Communications Manager IM and Presence.
    Step 3   If the system prompts you about certificates, you must enable HTTPS to secure communications between the browser client and the web server. See the Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications Manager for more information about how to load the required certificates for the HTTPS connection.
    Step 4   Enter the application username and application user password that you specified during installation when the system prompts you for a user name and password. The Cisco Unified CM IM and Presence Administration interface displays.
