Configuration
Specific Description
Upgrade Instructions

Single-server configuration

There is only one Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server, and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook components are installed only on that server.

Follow the instructions in the "Upgrading Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook" section.

Segmented meeting access (DMZ) configuration

SMA-2S configuration:

There is one full-access Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server behind the firewall and one limited-access Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server in the DMZ, and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook components are installed only on the internal Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server.

SMA-1S configuration:

There is one Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server in the DMZ that serves both as the internal Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server and the external Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook is installed on this server.

For an SMA-2S or an SMA-1S configuration, follow the instructions in the "Upgrading Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook" section.

For any other DMZ configuration, contact Cisco technical support.

For more information about segmented meeting access configurations, see the documentation for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing.

Notification Services only

Only the Notification Services component is installed, and you are only upgrading that component.

Run the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook installer on the machine on which the component is installed. At the Welcome dialog box, choose Modify. Then follow the directions on the installer screens.

All other configurations

Contact your Cisco technical support representative.


Upgrading Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook

Your configuration before and after upgrading must be the same. For example, in a single-server configuration, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Outlook must currently reside on the same server in order to be upgraded on the same server.

If you have customized templates by using any method that is not explicitly supported during upgrades (see the table in the "Customizing Scheduling Forms and Meeting Notifications" section on page 6-1), upgrading to this version will override your customizations. Existing customized templates will not work with this release.
