Documentation Updates

Errors

This section lists incorrect information that was included in the current Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator documentation. The new and additional information will be removed in a future documentation release, or as otherwise noted.

Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator: Remove Tasks to Start and Stop Web Conferencing

The information in this section should be changed in the "Configuring Logging" section of the "Troubleshooting Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator" chapter of the Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator.

When changing the logging level on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace LCS Gateway, it is not necessary to restart the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing service.

Remove these steps:

c.Right-click Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing and click Stop.

d.Right-click Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing and click Start.

Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator: Change Log Entry Name Changes

The information in this section should be changed in the "Troubleshooting Cisco Unified MeetingPlace LCS Gateway Startup Problems" section of the "Troubleshooting Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator" chapter of the Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator.

Add the following to the first paragraph:

If the system has not loaded the LCS Event Receiver Add-In, users cannot use DTMF controls in meetings. (For example, #5 for muting and unmuting, #41 for locking or unlocking a meeting, etc.)

Change step2 to the following:

Step 2 Search for the following entries in the log:

Loading "LCS MPEventBroker" add-in... 
Loaded ConferenceTechnologyProvider interface for "LCS MPEventBroker" 
Load of "LCS MPEventBroker" add-In completed

Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator: Tracking a Conference in the Logs

The information in this section should be changed in the "Tracking a Conference in the Logs" section of the "Troubleshooting Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator" chapter of the Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator.

Change the second paragraph of this section to this:

For troubleshooting purposes, the LCS Conference ID and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting ID are both logged in the Gateway Systems Integrity Manager (Gateway SIM) log when the meeting is created. When the MOC user ends the conference, the system removes the tie between these two IDs. If the MOC user initiates another conference, the system uses the same LCS Conference ID, but it is mapped to a new Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting ID. If the MOC user has the "Use reservationless" parameter set to yes in the user profile, the system sets the MOC-initiated meeting ID to the user's profile ID (phone number). Otherwise, the system randomly generates the meeting ID.

Omissions

This section lists new and additional information that is not included in the current Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator documentation. The new and additional information will be incorporated in a future documentation release, or as otherwise noted.

Installation and Administration Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Office Communicator: Installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
