TX9000/9200 Primary Codec Configuration and Verification

This section provides instructions on how to configure and verify the TelePresence TX9000/9200 primary codec status using the TelePresence and CUCM Admin utility.

Caution

Caution: Do not power off codec during the software and peripheral upgrade. Doing so will damage the codec.

To configure and verify the new primary codec, do the follow:

Step 1 Open the facade panel under the right plasma display. Connect PC RJ-45 Ethernet port to the Touch screen device port on the presentation codec. See Figure 1-1.

  • Configure PC to use DHCP. The PC will receive an IP address from the primary codec. Use IPCONFIG command to check IP address on the PC. The default gateway is the center codec. See Figure 1-2.

Step 2 Log in TelePresence Admin GUI web page via http://codec-IP. The default admin login is username: admin and password: cisco, see Figure 2-1.

Note Note:  If you can not log in the codec with default password, follow Codec Password Reset procedure to reset the password to default value: cisco then try to log in the codec again.

Step 3 Configure TX9000/9200 IP settings.

  1. From the Device Information menu, select IP Settings.
  2. From the IP Settings configuration screen:
    • select Yes for DHCP Enabled if the TelePresence uses DHCP for IP address or
    • select No for static IP address. Enter TelePresence IP address, Subnet mask, Default Gateway, and DNS server IP addresses accordingly. See Figure 3-1 for an example. If you were able to save this information from the old codec, you may enter that information here.
  3. Click Apply to save TelePresence IP settings. The primary codec will reboot after IP setting is saved. The reboot takes about 10 minutes.

Step 4 After primary codec boots up, log in CTS Admin utility again.

Step 5 From the Device Information menu, select Network Settings and enter the information if required and click apply. After a reboot, log back into the Admin utility and select the Unified CM Settings. See Figure 5-1.

Step 6 Select the desired choice for the Use Configuration TFTP Servers (Automatic or Specify) option. If Specify is selected, enter the IP address of the TFTP server(s). If you were able to save this information from the old codec, you may enter that information here. Click Apply button on the right to save the settings. The primary codec will automatically reboot and register with the Call Manager to download codec software.

  • During the system reboot, you should see 6 check marks and Cisco logo displayed on the plasma and presentation screen and 7 check marks on the Touch Controller. See Figure 6-1 for an example.
  • The reboot takes about 15 minutes, followed by the upgrade which takes about 60 minutes.
Caution

Caution: Do not power off codec during the software and peripheral upgrade. Doing so will damage the codec.

Step 7 Wait for the system to complete peripheral upgrade. If peripheral firmware such as camera, display, microphone, and ACU needs upgrade, system will perform peripheral upgrade automatically. See Figure 7-1 for an example.

  • The peripherals upgrade can take up to 60 minutes to complete. Do not manually reboot the codec during peripheral upgrade.

Step 8 After the peripheral upgrade is complete and system finishes booting, the system is ready to use when the touch screen device displays Meetings menu.
