Step 2 Choose Services > Mobility Services to display the Mobility Services window.
Step 3 From the Select a command drop-down menu, choose Add Mobility Services Engine and click Go.
Step 4 In the Device Name field, enter a name for the mobility services engine.
Step 5 In the IP Address field, enter the mobility services engine's IP address.
Step 6 (Optional) In the Contact Name field, enter the name of the mobility services engine administrator.
Step 7 In the User Name and Password fields, enter the username and password for the mobility services engine.
The default username and password are both admin.
Note If you changed the username and password during the automatic installation script, enter those values here. If you did not change the default passwords, Cisco strongly recommends that you rerun the automatic installation script and change the username and password.
Step 8 Click Next. The Select Mobility Service window appears.
Step 9 To enable a service on the mobility services engine, check the check box next to that service.

Note After adding a new mobility services engine, you can synchronize network designs (campus, building, and outdoor maps), controllers, switches (Catalyst Series 3000 only), and event groups on the local mobility services engine using Cisco WCS. You can do this synchronization immediately after adding a new mobility services engine or at a later time. To synchronize the local and Cisco WCS databases, refer to Chapter 3.
To delete a mobility services engine from the Cisco WCS database, follow these steps:
Step 1 Click Services > Mobility Services to display the Mobility Services window.
Step 2 Select the mobility services engine(s) to be deleted by checking the corresponding check box(es).
Step 3 From the Select a command drop-down menu, select Delete Service(s) and click Go.
Step 4 Click OK to confirm that you want to delete the selected mobility services engine from the WCS database.
Step 5 Click Cancel to stop deletion.
You receive a product authorization key (PAK) when you order a client, wIPs, or tag license from Cisco. You must register the PAK to receive the license file for install on the mobility services engine. License files are emailed to you after successfully registering a PAK.
Client and wIPS PAKs are registered with Cisco.
Tag PAKs are registered with AeroScout. Refer to the Cisco Context-Aware Serve Configuration Guide at:
To register a product authorization key (PAK) to obtain a license file for install, follow these steps:
Step 1 Open a browser window and enter:
Step 2 Enter the PAK and click SUBMIT (see Figure 2-1).
