Issue Description

This KB aims to show the proper way in adding and configuring correctly a new participant in SMC2.0.

Solution

There are several steps in adding and configuring correctly a new participant endpoint in SMC2.0.

Please follow the steps in the exact order presented in this KB for achieving this.


First step: Configuring a participant


The main feature of a SMC is to centralize and manage participants after they are correctly configured and added to the SMC platform.

You need to know that before configuring a participant, double check that:

  • The endpoint and SMC of appropriate versions are used.
  • The endpoint is running properly and does not join any conferences.
For achieving this we are using as example a TE30 device.
 

Setting Connection Parameters for an Endpoint

1. Log in to the endpoint web interface
2. Set the API user
  • You need to go to System Settings > General
  • Set the API user parameters as per below image (by default username is "api" and the password is "Change_Me")


3. Set SNMP parameters

  •  Go to System Settings > Network > SNMP Settings

    The SNMP Settings tab page is displayed as per below image





  • Set the parameters as above and at the end click Save:
    • please note that default value of Authentication protocol is "MD5SHA" and default Authentication password is "Change_Me"

    • please note that default value of Encryption protocol is "DESAES"  and default Encryption password is also "Change_Me"

4. Participant name for the endpoint
  • Go to System Settings > Display > Site Name
  • Under Site Name, set the participant name and then click Save
5. Set H.323 parameters
  • Go to System Settings > Network > H.323/SIP Settings
  • Set the parameters as per below example



Second step: Adding a Participant on the SMC

NOTE!!! All the settings (username/passwords, authentication protocols and passwords / encryption protocols and passwords must be the exactly the same as you used in the TE30 device's configuration)

1. Log in to the SMC2.0 web interface

2. Go to Devices > Participants and then click Add Participant and the below page will be displayed:





3. Set the parameters as shown
  • please note that default value of Authentication protocol is "MD5SHA" and default Authentication password is "Change_Me"

  • please note that default value of Encryption protocol is "DESAES"  and default Encryption password is also "Change_Me"

4. Participant settings must be configured: 




5. Click Add and Save the settings.
