About the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Service

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Service is a Windows master service that manages and monitors the following:

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Agent Service

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Service

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Connect Application Service

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Connect Gateway

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Flash Media Administration Server

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Flash Media Server

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Replication Service

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Video Service

It also configures the MeetingPlace Web (MPWEB) database and the MPWEB slave databases.

The master service is turned on automatically after any reboot or upgrade, at which point it monitors all subsidiary services and runs a database configuration and import tool. If the database version is not up to date, the tool updates the database schema. Similarly, if the database needs to import new strings, the tool imports them. If any services fail, the master service automatically restarts and a major alarm is sent to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Service and NTP Servers

If you are using an NTP server, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace will force the Web Server to synchronize its time with the NTP server whenever you restart the Web Conferencing master service. This is regardless of how large the time difference is. Once the master service is started, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace will only synchronize with the NTP server if the time difference is 30 seconds or less. The synchronization will take place once every hour.


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



Note The first time the Web Conferencing master service comes up, the NTP server is set to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server.
