Important Considerations

Before you proceed with the Cisco Unified Presence Server installation, consider the following requirements and recommendations:

Be aware that when you install Cisco Unified Presence Server on an existing server, the hard drive gets formatted, and all existing data on the drive gets overwritten.

Install the Cisco Unified Presence Server software on the first node, or publisher, server first and then on the second node. You must configure the second node on the first node before you can install the second node.

Make sure that the second node can connect to the first node server and to the Cisco Unified CallManager first node during the installation.

Enter the same security password on all servers in the cluster.

Install the Cisco Unified Presence Server software during off-peak hours or a maintenance window to avoid impact from call-processing interruptions.

Configure the server using static IP addressing to ensure that the server obtains a fixed IP address and that the Cisco IP Phones can register with the application when you plug the phones into the network.

You must have access to a Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) server to back up Cisco Unified Presence Server over a network.

Do not install any Cisco-verified applications until you complete installing Cisco Unified Presence Server on every server in the cluster.

Carefully read the instructions that follows before you proceed with the installation

Table 6 Field Definitions 

Field
Description
Usage

Administrator Login

This field specifies the name that you want to assign to this account.

Ensure the name is unique; it can contain lowercase, alphanumeric characters, hyphens, and underscores. It must start with a lowercase, alphanumeric character.

For this mandatory field, you should record it for use when logging in to the CLI on the platform or into the Cisco IPT Platform Administration.

Note You cannot change this field after installation.

Administrator Password

This field specifies the password for the Administrator account.

Use this password to log in to Cisco IPT Platform Administration, Disaster Recovery System, and the CLI.

Application User Password

This field specifies the password for Cisco Unified Presence Server administration.

DHCP

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

Choose Yes if you want to use DHCP to automatically configure the network settings on your server.

If you choose No, you must enter a hostname, IP Address, IP Mask, Gateway, and DNS configuration.

DNS Enabled

A Domain Name System (DNS) server represents a device that resolves a hostname into an IP address or an IP address into a hostname.

The DNS fields only appear when you are not using DHCP.

If you do not have a DNS server, enter No. When DNS is not enabled, you should only enter IP addresses (not hostnames) for all network devices in your Cisco IP Telephony network.

If you have a DNS server, Cisco recommends entering Yes to enable DNS. Disabling DNS limits the systems ability to resolve some domain names.

DNS Primary

Cisco Unified Presence Server contacts this DNS server first when attempting to resolve host names.

Enter the IP address of the DNS server that you want to specify as the primary DNS server. Enter the IP address in dotted decimal format as ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd where ddd can have a value between 0 and 255 (except 0.0.0.0).

Consider this field mandatory if DNS is set to yes.

DNS Secondary

When a primary DNS server fails, Cisco Unified Presence Server will attempt to connect to the secondary DNS server.

In this optional field, enter the IP address of the secondary DNS. Enter the IP address in dotted decimal format as ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd where ddd can have a value between 0 and 255 (except 0.0.0.0).

Domain

This field represents the name of the domain in which this machine is located.

Consider this field mandatory if DNS is set to yes.

Gateway Address

A gateway represents a network point that acts as an entrance to another network. Outbound packets get sent to the gateway that will forward them to their final destination.

Enter the IP address of the gateway in the format ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd where ddd can have a value between 0 and 255 (except 0.0.0.0)

If you do not have a gateway, you must still fill in this field by setting it to 255.255.255.255. Not having a gateway may limit you to being able to communicate with devices only on your subnet.

Host Name

A host name represents an alias that is assigned to an IP address to identify it.

Enter a host name that is unique to your network.

The host name can comprise up to 64 characters and can contain alphanumeric characters and hyphens.

If DHCP is set to no, consider this field mandatory.

IP Address

This field specifies the IP address of this machine. It will uniquely identify the server on this network. No other machine in this network should be using this IP address.

Enter the IP address in the form ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd where ddd can have a value between 0 and 255 (except 0.0.0.0).

If DHCP is set to no, consider this field mandatory.

IP Mask

This field specifies the IP subnet mask of this machine. The subnet mask together with the IP address defines the network address and the host address.

Enter the IP mask in the form ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd where ddd can have a value between 0 and 255 (except 0.0.0.0).

A valid mask should have contiguous '1' bits on left side and contiguous '0' bits on the right.

For example, a valid mask follows: 255.255.240.0 (11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000)

An invalid mask follows: 255.255.240.240 (11111111.11111111.11110000.11110000)

SMTP Location

This field specifies the name of the SMTP host that is used for outbound e-mail.

Enter the hostname or dotted IP address for the SMTP server. For a host, it can contain alphanumeric characters, hyphens, or periods. For a host name, it must start with an alphanumeric character.

You must fill in this field if you plan to use Electronic Notification. If not, you can leave it blank.

Time zone

Local time zone and offset from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

Choose Yes if you want to change the time zone.

Choose the time zone that most closely matches the location of your machine.

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532


Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.


Obtaining Technical Assistance

Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, if you have a valid Cisco service contract, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not have a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.

Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website

The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport

Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do


Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
