Using Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch CLI Commands
This chapter explains how to use Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch (CTMS) Command Line Interface (CLI) commands.
Starting a CLI Session
You can access the CTMS CLI through the physical console or remotely. If accessing the CTMS CLI remote, use Secure Shell (SSH) from a personal computer or workstation to connect securely to CTMS.
Before you begin, be sure that you have the following information:
CTMS IP address
Admin ID and password
You will need this information to log into CTMS.
Note The admin ID and password can be changed from the default in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) for CTMS device page.
To start a CLI session:
Step 1 From a remote system, use SSH to connect securely to CTMS. In the SSH client, enter the following information: ssh adminname@IP Address
adminname is the Admin ID
IP Address is the IP address of CTMS
Step 2 When the system prompts you, enter the password.
Step 3 The CLI prompt (admin) displays. You can now enter any CLI command.
Note The prompt will always be “admin.”
