Configure Initial Settings for the Virtual Edition

After installation of the Virtual Edition software, you need to configure the Virtual Edition system using the system's web-based user interface.


  1. From a PC with network access to the Virtual Edition system, point your browser to the URL for the system instance (ignore any security certificate warning that may appear).
  2. 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.

  3. Select the check box labeled I accept the terms of this license agreement and click Accept.

    The Dashboard of the RealPresence DMA system's web user interface displays. Using its menus, you can complete your system setup.

  4. Go to Admin > Server > Network Settings and select the System IP type to match what you specified in the First-Time Setup Worksheet.
  5. If you need to change the network configuration, enter the new network values.
  6. Click Update.

    When asked to confirm restarting the system, click Yes.

    The system restarts.

  7. Point your browser to the system's host name or IP address.
  8. Log in with username admin and password Polycom12#$.
  9. Go to Admin > Server > Time Settings and do the following:
    1. 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.
    2. Select Use NTP server (recommended) and enter the IP addresses or domain names for the NTP 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 or enabling a High Availability pair.
  10. Click Update.
  11. Click Yes to confirm the system restart.
    The system restarts, which takes several minutes.
  12. Log back in to the system and complete your system setup.
    The tasks required to complete the system configuration are described in the online help or the Polycom RealPresence DMA System Operations Guide.
