Settings


Use the Settings options to display and change IP settings, host settings, and Network Time Protocol (NTP) settings.

IP Settings

The IP Settings options allow you to view and change IP and port setting for the Ethernet connection and, on subsequent nodes, to set the IP address of the publisher server.

Ethernet Settings

The IP Settings window indicates whether Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is active and also provides the related Ethernet IP addresses, as well as the IP address for the network gateway.

All Ethernet settings apply only to Eth0. You cannot configure any settings for Eth1. The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) on Eth0 defaults to 1500.

To view or change the IP settings, follow this procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>IP>Ethernet.

The Ethernet Settings window displays.

Step 2 To modify the Ethernet settings, enter the new values in the appropriate fields. For a description of the fields on the Ethernet Settings window, see Table 4-1.


Note If you enable DHCP, the system disables the Port and Gateway setting, and it cannot be changed.


Step 3 To preserve your changes, click Save.


Table 4-1 Ethernet Settings Fields and Descriptions 

Field
Description

DHCP

Indicates whether DHCP is Enabled or Disabled.

IP Address

Shows the IP address of the system.

Subnet Mask

Shows the IP subnet mask address.

Default Gateway

Shows the IP address of the network gateway.


Publisher Settings


Caution Cisco recommends that you do not attempt to change the IP address of the publisher server after installing Cisco Unified Presence, either in Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration or by using the Command Line Interface (CLI). If you try to do this in Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration, the IP configuration of the server may be lost and Cisco Unified Presence may not function properly. The only solution, if this occurs, is to reinstall Cisco Unified Presence. You cannot use the set network ip command to reconfigure the IP address and netmask via the CLI. The command does not execute successfully because of a known issue with syntax and arguments.

NTP Servers

Ensure that external NTP server is stratum 9 or higher (1-9). To add, delete, or modify an external NTP server, follow this procedure:


Note You can configure the NTP server settings only on the first node or publisher server.


Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>NTP Servers.

The NTP Server Settings window displays.

Step 2 You can add, delete, or modify an NTP server:

To delete an NTP server, check the check box beside the appropriate server and click Delete Selected.

To add an NTP server, click Add New, enter the hostname or IP address, and then click Save.

To modify an NTP server, click the IP address, modify the hostname or IP address, and then click Save.


Note Changes to the NTP servers can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Whenever you make any change to the NTP servers, you must refresh the window to display the correct status.


Step 3 To refresh the NTP Server Settings window and display the correct status, choose Settings > NTP Servers.


Note After deleting, modifying, or adding NTP server, you must restart all the other nodes in the cluster for the changes to take effect.



SMTP Settings

The SMTP Settings window allows you to view or set the SMTP hostname and indicates whether the SMTP host is active.


Tip If you want the system to send you e-mail, from the Certificate Expiry Monitor, for example, you must configure an SMTP host.


To access the SMTP settings, follow this procedure:

Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>SMTP.

The SMTP Settings window displays.

Step 2 Enter or modify the SMTP hostname or IP address.

Step 3 Click Save.


Time Settings

To manually configure the time, follow this procedure:


Note Before you can manually configure the server time, you must delete any NTP servers that you have configured. See NTP Servers for more information.


Procedure


Step 1 From the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, navigate to Settings>Time.

Step 2 Enter the date and time for the system.

Step 3 Click Save.
