Adding a Location Server to Cisco WCS

Log into WCS and follow these steps to add a location server to Cisco WCS:


Step 1 Verify that you can ping the location server that you want to add from the Cisco WCS server.

Step 2 Choose Location > Location Servers to display the All Location Servers page.

Step 3 From the drop-down menu (right-hand side), choose Add Server and click GO.

Step 4 In the Server Name field, enter a name for the location server.

Step 5 In the IP Address field, enter the location server's IP address.

Step 6 (Optional) In the Contact Name filed, enter the name of the location server administrator.

Step 7 In the User Name and Password fields, enter the username and password for the location server.

The default username and password are both admin.

Step 8 In the Port field, enter the port number used by the location server.

The default port is 8001.

Step 9 Check the Enable check box to enable HTTPS. Uncheck the check box to disable HTTPS.

HTTPS is disabled by default.

Step 10 Click Save.

Cisco WCS searches for the location server and adds it to the Cisco WCS database.

Step 11 Go back to the All Location Servers page and click Refresh (top right). Verify that the location server that you have just added appears on the page.


Note Cisco WCS does not allow you to add a server that already exists in the WCS database.
