    Parameter Description
    Name

    If multiple Recording Links are defined, it is recommended to use a descriptive name to be indicated the VRR to which to associate it

    Default: Recording Link

    Type

    Select the network environment:

    • H.323
    • SIP

    Polycom recommends selecting H.323.

    IP Address
    • If no gatekeeper is configured, enter the IP Address of the HARMAN Media Suite.
    • If a gatekeeper is configured, you can either enter the IP address or an alias (see the alias description).
    • If SIP server is configured, enter the IP address of the SIP server instead of the IP address of HARMAN Media Suite.
    Alias Name

    If using the endpoint’s alias instead of IP address, first select the alias type and then enter the endpoint’s alias.

    If you are associating this recording link to a VRR on the HARMAN Media Suite, define the alias as follows:

    • If you are using the HARMAN Media Suite IP address, enter the VRR number in the Alias field. For example, if the VRR number is 5555, enter 5555.
    • If the Alias Type is set to H.323 ID, enter the HARMAN Media Suite IP address and the VRR number in the format:

      <Media Suite IP Address>##<VRR number>

      For example: If the HARMAN Media Suite IP is 173.26.120.2 and the VRR number is 5555, enter 173.26.120.2##5555

    • If the Alias Type is set to E.164, enter the HARMAN Media Suite E.164 followed by VRR number:

      <Media Suite E.164><VRR number>

      For example: If the HARMAN Media Suite E.164 is 123456 and the VRR number is 5555, enter 1234565555

    The name should be the same as HARMAN Media Suite registration information.

    Alias Type

    Depending on the format used to enter the information in the IP address and Alias fields, select H.323 ID or E.164 (for multiple Recording links). E-mail ID and Participant Number are also available.

    The type should be the same as HARMAN Media Suite registration information.

    If the recording link does not define the VRR, enter the HARMAN Media Suite E.164 that registers to RealPresence DMA in the Alias Name. The default VRR is used for recording.



    If the recording link defines the VRR, enter the HARMAN Media Suite E.164 +VRR in the Alias Name.
