Getting Started

You can use the configuration parameters described in this guide to provision single or multiple systems. Use the navigation on the left to find parameters grouped by functional area.

Unless otherwise noted in the description, you can provision a parameter on systems in Poly Video Mode or Poly Partner Mode.

Understanding Parameter Lists

The following describes a general convention for details you can find in parameter lists. Parameter details can vary depending on the complexity of the parameter.

parameter.name

A parameter’s description, applicability, or dependencies, as needed.

The parameter’s permitted values, default value, and the value’s unit of measure (such as seconds, Hz, or dB).

A Note: that highlights critical information you need to know.

Automatic Provisioning with RealPresence Resource Manager

By default, the RealPresence Resource Manager system automatically provisions some system settings for you using a special configuration value (for example, voIpProt.SIP.userName=“${sip_alias}”).

The following parameters support automatic configuration values:

device.local.deviceName=“${device_name}”
dir.ldap.server.address=“${ldap_serveraddress}”
dir.ldap.baseDN=“${ldap_baseDN}”
dir.ldap.defaultGroupDN=“${ldap_defaultgroupDN}”
voIpProt.H323.name=“${h323_ID}”
voIpProt.H323.e164=“${h323_e164}”
voIpProt.SIP.userName=“${sip_alias}”

These parameters are provisioned by default, so you won’t see them in the profiles provided by the RealPresence Resource Manager system. You can overwrite these parameters with your own values (for example, voIpProt.SIP.userName=“meetingSpace”).

You also can automatically generate new values by resetting these parameters with a special configuration value (for example, voIpProt.H323.e164=“${h323_e164}”). However, you can’t rename existing endpoints by setting device.local.deviceName=“${device_name}” because that value is applied only to new endpoints.
