Installing Cisco CallManager Multilevel Administration Access

If you were running release 1.2(x) of the MLA software, upgrade to release 1.2(3) will preserve the MLA data. Follow the instructions in the "Upgrading Cisco CallManager Multilevel Administration Access" section.

Multilevel administration access installs on Cisco CallManager version 3.3(4) database publisher and subscriber(s) servers. Multilevel administration access installation creates a separate multilevel administration access database. This database gets replicated from the publisher to the subscribers on which multilevel administration access is installed. For failover of Cisco CallManager Administration and Serviceability with multilevel administration access, ensure that multilevel administration access is installed separately on the subscriber servers.

If the multilevel administration access database on the publisher server is down, multilevel administration access makes connection to the subscriber local multilevel administration access database with read-only access, and no modification to the multilevel administration access database can occur.

Multilevel administration access installation sets up the CCMAdmin and CCMService virtual directories with Anonymous Access for the Local NT administrator.

This section describes how to install the multilevel administration access on a user PC.


Note After downloading the multilevel administration access executable, install it on the database publisher server. If redundancy is desired, install the executable on one or more subscriber servers.



Note After installing multilevel administration access, you must log in as CCMAdministrator with the password that you provided during the install. Your old Administrator password will no longer work.


Procedure


Step 1 Double-click the downloaded file to launch the installer.

Step 2 If you want to restore MLA data from the MLA 1.1(1) database, answer Yes to the install question "Do you have a Multilevel Admin 1.1(1) database to be restored?" Otherwise, answer No.

If you have not backed up the MLA 1.1(1) database, install will prompt you to do so before continuing.

Step 3 Click Next at the Welcome to the MLA Installation Wizard window.

The License screen displays.

Step 4 To accept the license agreement, click Yes.

Step 5 Enter the Local System Administrator account information:

Userid: Administrator

Password:

Step 6 Click Next.

Step 7 Enter CCMAdministrator password:

Password:

Confirm Password:

Step 8 Click Next.

If the SQL System Administrator password is blank, Install displays a warning:

Your SQL SA password is blank. For security reasons, please change it.

Skip to step 13.

Otherwise, a dialog for entering the password appears.

Step 9 Enter SQL System Administrator account information:

User ID: sa

Password:

Step 10 Click OK.

If the System Administrator password is wrong, Install displays an error message:

Please enter the correct SQL SA password.

Return to step 9.

Step 11 Click Next.

The screen displays the Installation Directory information.

Step 12 Enter Multilevel Admin Base information, the directory search base for MLA user groups. Install displays the default base, which can be changed if needed.

Step 13 Click Next.

The Reboot dialog displays. For synchronization of Local System Administrator password changes, click Yes to reboot the server immediately, or click No to reboot later. Click Finish on the dialog that displays when Install completes.
