Post-Setup Wizard

Post-Setup Wizard

GUI: Cisco Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface

After you log in to the Cisco Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface for the first time, the Post-Setup Wizard displays. Cisco Business Edition 3000 displays the Post-Setup Wizard to ensure that you perform the most critical tasks immediately after the Cisco Business Edition 3000 First Time Setup Wizard completes. The Post-Setup Wizard allows you to perform the following tasks:

  • Immediately import users and phones in bulk from the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file
  • Immediately obtain the CLI commands that you must issue on the gateway
  • Perform other recommended tasks, such as backups

For more information on the Post-Setup wizard, see the following table.

Description

Bulk Insert of Users and Phones

The Bulk Insert of Users and Phones page only displays if you selected Automatic Setup during the Cisco Business Edition 3000 First Time Setup Wizard. To import the users and phones, Cisco Business Edition 3000 uses the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file that you uploaded during the Cisco Business Edition 3000 First Time Setup Wizard.

When you import users and phones during the Post-Setup wizard, Cisco Business Edition 3000 attempts to insert user and phone configuration into the system. After the attempt occurs, Cisco Business Edition 3000 displays a report that indicates whether the insertion succeeded or failed. The report indicates the number of phones and users that successfully got inserted, the number of phones and users that failed to get inserted, and the reason why the insertion failed. If errors (failures) occur, you can save the errors to an .csv file so that you can correct the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file. After you update the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file, attempt the import again through the Search Users or Search Phones pages (the Import Bulk Users/Phones button under Users/Phones > Users or Phones).

Gateway Configuration

The Gateway Configuration page displays the list of CLI commands that you must issue on the gateway. Before your users can place calls over the PSTN, you must issue these CLI commands on the gateway.

Some of the CLI commands include your configuration from the Cisco-provided .xls data configuration file or the Cisco Business Edition 3000 First Time Setup Wizard; for example, the hostname for the gateway is included in one of the commands.

You can either save the commands to file so that you can issue the commands later, or you can copy and paste the commands immediately onto the gateway if the gateway is in enable mode. For information on putting the gateway into enable mode and for information on issuing commands on the gateway, refer to the gateway documentation.

To save the commands to file, use a text editor, and verify that the CLI commands display correctly in the file after you save it. In some cases, such as with Microsoft NotePad, the commands may not display in a format that can be used later for copying and pasting.

When you copy the commands, make sure that you copy all text that displays in the section.

To issue the commands on the gateway at a later time, select System Settings > Gateway; then, click Generate CLI Commands to Configure the Gateway under the General tab.

Next Steps

Cisco prioritizes the next steps that you should perform. For example, Cisco recommends that you perform a backup before you perform additional configuration tasks. To perform a backup, choose Maintenance > Backup.
