PAWS Management administrative interface basics

PAWS Management administrative interface basics

PAWS Management administrative interface overview

The PAWS-M administrative interface allows you to start upgrades for Cisco Unified Presence, Cisco Unified Communications Manager, and Cisco Unity Connection. It allows you to configure the server inventory for the system as well as select, schedule, and monitor upgrades of one or more servers across one or more clusters. In the PAWS-M administrative interface, you can also create groups of servers to help manage multiple clients and applications. From the administrative interface, you can schedule restarts for servers and schedule tasks for switching to the active version (active partition).
