Field Reference: Web Server Specific Fields

Field
Description

Web Server Name

The name assigned to this Web Server.

This field was populated during the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing installation

Hostname [Home Page]

A unique hostname, FQDN, or IP address used to connect to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace home page.

This field was populated during the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing installation with the first IP address assigned in the Operating System.

If this field contains just the hostname of your web server, we recommend that you change it to the FQDN, that is, hostname.domain.com. If your web server is not in a Domain Name System (DNS), insert the IP address instead.

Do not set this parameter to the same value as the Hostname [Web Conferencing].

To use SSL, you must change this value from the default IP address to either hostname or FQDN.

Verify that intended users can resolve this hostname or IP address.

Make sure that you can resolve the hostnames for Home Page and Web Conferencing on the Web Server computer. If the hostnames cannot be resolved by the DNS Server, these entries should be added to the local hosts file. Otherwise, users may experience trouble when trying to share attachments in the meeting room.

Hostname [Web Conferencing]

A unique hostname, FQDN, or IP address used to connect Flash clients to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting console.

This field was populated during the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing installation with the second IP address assigned in the Operating System.

If this field contains just the hostname of your web server, we recommend that you change it to the FQDN, that is, hostname.domain.com. If your web server is not in a Domain Name System (DNS), insert the IP address instead.

Do not set this parameter to the same value as the Hostname [Home Page].

To use SSL, you must change this value from the default IP address to either hostname or FQDN.

Verify that intended users can resolve this hostname or IP address.

Make sure that you can resolve the hostnames for Home Page and Web Conferencing on the web server computer. If the hostnames cannot be resolved by the DNS Server, these entries should be added to the local hosts file. Otherwise, users may experience trouble when trying to share attachments in the meeting room.

Note You must restart the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing services for changes to this field to take effect.

Note When you restart the Web Server, all manual changes made to the registry are lost.

Require SSL

Whether this Web Server is configured for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections.

Trust Web Server Authentication

Whether this Web Server accepts authenticated Windows login information to automatically log in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

Include Attachments In Make New Meeting

Not supported.

Max Concurrent Web Conference Users

Sets the maximum number of concurrent web conference users that are allowed on this server.

The maximum number of concurrent web conference users is determined by the maximum supported number of web ports for your particular server and configuration.

If you have a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web cluster configuration (two or more Web Servers operating in cluster mode), enter the same value for each Web Server. The value that you enter is the sum of the ports supported by the cluster configuration. For example, the maximum number of web ports supported on a MCS-7845-I3 server is 600. If you have two 7845-I3 servers, multiply 600 x 2 and enter the total (1200) for Max Concurrent Web Conference Users on each server in your cluster.


Tip Remember that the maximum number of web users per meeting is restricted by the number of supported audio ports per meeting, which is 500 ports due to the rate at which a single Audio Blade can accept traffic. Cisco Unified MeetingPlace does not support a single meeting spanning multiple servers.


Note Setting this parameter to the highest level on a computer with inadequate hardware results in poor user performance.

Performance Tuning

Allows you to optimize your Web Server based on the number of potential concurrent web conferencing users (versus users who may not be using the conferencing portion, such as administrators who only schedule meetings).

Note Setting this parameter to the highest level on a computer with inadequate hardware results in poor user performance.

Verbose Logging

Determines whether detailed entries will be logged to the Gateway SIM log.

Recommended Select No to enhance performance. This is the default setting.


Troubleshooting Tips

Entering an IP address for Hostname will prevent proper functionality of the Windows authentication feature. For further information about this issue and workarounds, see "How to Resolve Authentication Problems" in the Troubleshooting Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing module.
