By setting up this mail server, the system can use your corporate mail server to send emails to administrators (alerts, alarms, reports, and so on) and users (meeting invitations, password resets, and so on).
Before You Begin
You must have successfully completed the deployment of the virtual machines required for your system.
Enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of a mail server that the system will use to send emails.
If you want TLS enabled, then check this check box.
You may edit the Port field if you do not want to use the default value.
By default, the SMTP port number is 25, or 465 (secure SMTP port number).
If there is a firewall between the internal virtual machines and the mail server, then these ports may be blocked. To ensure mail traffic can pass, make sure these ports are open between the mail server and your system.
If you want to enable mail server authentication, check the Server authentication enabled check box.
If you enable server authentication, then the Username and Password fields are displayed.
If displayed, enter the Username and Password credentials for the system to access your corporate mail server.
Emails from the system are sent by admin@<WebEx-site-URL>. Ensure that the mail server can recognize this user.
Setting Up the Time Zone and Locale for the System
Select the local time zone for your system from the drop-down list.
Select the country locale for your system from the drop-down list.
Confirming the Mail Server, Time Zone, and Locale Settings
You entered these settings on the previous screens.
Review the information you entered previously. If there are any mistakes, then select Back. Otherwise, select Next.
Setting Up the First Administrator Account for Your System
The system creates a single administrator account as part of the deployment process.
This administrator must sign into the system, create a password, and add additional administrators and users. Otherwise, no other user will have access to the system.
Before You Begin
You must have correctly set up a mail server for the system to send emails to administrators and users.
Enter the first and last names of the administrator.
Enter the administrator's complete email address, then confirm it by entering it again.
Select Next to create your password.
Enter your password, then confirm it by entering it again.
Select Submit to sign in to the WebEx Administration site.
You must sign in to the system and add additional users. Upon creation of each new user, the system sends an email to each user, welcoming and asking the user to sign in and create a password.
Upon initial sign in, each administrator will have an opportunity to view a tutorial of the system. The administrators can view the tutorial immediately, or decide to view it later.
Testing the System
These are some of the tests to run on the system. You can accomplish these tests and validate your system by using two diagnostic tools provided on the support pages for this product: the Meetings Test and the System Resources test.
