Ask the Expert:Deploying, Configuring and Troubleshooting Cisco

Srdjan,

Thanks, but as a partner, I can't access any wwwin.cisco.com pages.  Again, I get a 404 error if I try it as www.cisco.com.

Sorry for the nuisance.

Regards,

Hello Mike,

Sorry for confusion over there.

Feel free to reachout to your account Team to help you get information from there. I m aware of "Golden" document prepared to our partners you should request that from your account Team.

Feel free to reachout to me if further assistance is needed.

Ask the Expert:Deploying, Configuring and Troubleshooting Cisco

Hi Srdjan,

When I load the recent OVA of CWMS (1.1.1.9.A) I receive the following requirements which causes confusing:

50 User Admin:

  • 4 vCPU
  • 14GB RAM
  • 2 vNIC
  • ~350GB HDD (several partitions)

50 User IRP:

  • 4vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 2 vNIC
  • ~112GB HDD (several partitions)

  1. These requiremens are completely  different to the Ordering Guide / Cisco UC Sizing Tool and the  available System requirements, which say (since version 1.1) 24GB RAM  for Admin and 12GB RAM for IRP. CPU requirements is now dependent on  ESXI version (5.1 needs more CPUs).
  2. HDD requirements depents of  course on requirements. If e.g i don't need meeting recording at all, we  can say 500GB HDD is more than enough, can't we?
  3. With recent  OVA i cannot choose a combination / co-resident for one VM (Admin +  IRP)? Do you know how this can be achieved with OVF deployment?
  4. If  we have a Micro Installation with max. 5 concurrent sessions, the  50-Port system is extremely oversized. Will there be any change in the  future to install it on a VM with smaller footprint?
  5. Can you explain the Manual Deployment with smaller requirements for Testlab/Demo in more detail?
  6. Meetingplace 8.5 is still not EOS, but i think CWMS will be the migration product. Do you know when CWMS will support audio only conferences (w Scheduling)?

Re: Ask the Expert:Deploying, Configuring and Troubleshooting Ci

Hello Christoph,

Let me try to provide answers on your questions.

1. You are right about this , I would go with http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/collaboration/CWMS/1_1/b_System_Requirements_chapter_00.html#reference_A11B522B36F14B59A0B83A374908C9E0

To adress your question , I would sugguest you to open an SR and confirm this with TAC engineers do we have issue here.

2. In regards to HDD requirements I would go with the same document which recommends 1 TB.

3. I would sugguest to open a SR and if yo uare hitting an issue to try to get workaround with manual deployment.

4. I m not aware of this on the roadmap.

5. The question was raised on this thread and I tried to provide workaround for co-residence  "in lab" . If you want to go with auto-deployment on co-residence with anything else it wont work, hardware requirements must be meet for production system.

6. Let me confirm this with PM Team and come back to you.

I hope this was helpfull

Thanks Srdjan

Re: Ask the Expert:Deploying, Configuring and Troubleshooting Ci

Hi Srdjan,

I rencently installed a CWMS whitout any problems but I'm now having problems to configure the NFS share for the storage server. I configured a NFS share on windows 2012 server and it's not working.

I can't find any documentation that explains the way the WMS server is accessing the NFS share (user, right, ...). Could you please help me to find information with this ?

Regards,

Feel free to open an service request . I'm not aware of a document like that.

What we can do is to find the solution there or provide a workaround with some Linux box.

Feel free to mention my name when opening SR that way engineer working can reach out to me.

Since this is a newer product and if anyone is interested I am running Wx 1.1. It is fantastic! Cisco was listening and delivered a solid on prem meeting solution that is leaps and bounds better than MPX. If you are a CUWL customer you are in luck with your licenses. My company was just about to sign the GoToMeeting contract when my cisco account team presented this "coming soon" solution last year. Admittedly, I am an early adopter and started the install last nov and had all kinds of issues due to this being a new product so i probably blazed the trail for smooth sailing to the others making the move now.

I would like to know what the 2.0 road map looks like. There are some missing features that I would like to see that WebEx cloud have. For example, the ability to join by meeting number only. The integration with jabber works great. We have had few little buggy things happen but cisco is headed in the right direction. I would like to see the ability somehow to prevent WebEx from touching every window that you have open when first launching. I have learned to close everything and only open the apps to share otherwise it cause all kinds of video weirdness and lag intially.

I have to give credit when it's due as to not appear to only complain
