Initial Configuration Without Using the USB Flash Drive

If you do not use the USB Configuration Utility on the USB flash drive, you can use the following procedure to complete the initial setup using a laptop PC and an Ethernet cable.

The RealPresence DMA system servers are shipped with the following default network settings that you can use to connect to the system:

IP address: 192.168.200.10

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Default gateway: 192.168.200.1

Procedure

  1. Ensure that the server is NOT connected to the enterprise network.
  2. Configure the network settings on your laptop to connect it to the same network segment as the RealPresence DMA system server.
    Example settings:
    • IP address: 192.168.200.20
    • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    • Default gateway: 192.168.200.1
  3. Do one of the following:
    1. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620 system, connect an Ethernet cable between your laptop and the GB 1 interface of the server.
    2. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R230 or R220 system, connect an Ethernet cable between your laptop and the Port 0 interface of the server.
  4. Power on the server.
    The server starts, which takes several minutes. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620 system, after the server starts, DMA Installed displays on the front panel LCD. This indicates that the system software is installed but its network and time settings are not configured.
    CAUTION: If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620 and DMA Installed does not display on the LCD, stop. Contact Polycom Global Services for assistance.
  5. On the laptop, point your browser to http://192.168.200.10 (ignore any security certificate warning that may appear).
  6. Log in with username admin and password Polycom12#$.
    The End User License Agreement (EULA) displays with a check box to accept or decline the Agreement. You can also agree or disagree to send usage data to Polycom to help improve the product. See the Polycom RealPresence DMA System Operations Guide for more information about automatic data collection.
  7. Select the check box labeled I accept the terms of this license agreement and click Accept.
    The Dashboard of the RealPresence DMA system's user interface displays. Using its menus, you can complete your system setup.
  8. Go to Admin > Server > Network Settings.
  9. Enter the Host name, Domain, DNS Search domains, and DNS 1.
  10. If you need to set up a special network routing rule or rules, click Routing Configuration, create the rule(s), and click OK.
  11. Click Update.
  12. When asked to confirm restarting the system, click Yes.
  13. While the server is restarting, do the following:
    1. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the laptop.
    2. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620, connect the server's GB 1 Ethernet port to the enterprise network to be used for management or combined traffic.
    3. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R230 or R220, connect the server's Port 0 Ethernet port to the enterprise network to be used for management or combined traffic.
    The restart process takes several minutes. If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620, after the server starts, DMA Ready displays on the front panel LCD.
  14. From a PC with network access to the RealPresence DMA system, point your browser to your system's host name or IP address.
  15. Log in with username admin and password Polycom12#$.
  16. Go to Admin > Server > Time Settings and select the correct System time zone for your location.
    Polycom recommends selecting the best location-specific setting, not one of the generic GMT offset settings.
  17. Under NTP servers, enter the IP addresses or domain names for the time servers.
    Polycom recommends specifying at least one and preferably three time servers. At least one time server must be specified before creating or joining a supercluster.
  18. Click Update.
    The system restarts.
    Note: If you are using a Polycom Rack Server R630 or R620, after the server starts, DMA Ready displays on the front panel LCD.
  19. When asked to confirm restarting the system, click Yes.
  20. Log back into the system from your browser and complete your system setup.
    The tasks required to complete the system configuration are described in the “Polycom DMA System Initial Configuration Summary” section of the online help or the Polycom RealPresence DMA System Operations Guide.
