LAB TOPOLOGY

LAB OVERVIEW:
All of the software needed to complete the exercises has been installed on the virtual workstations. This software includes the Cisco IP Communicator (CIPC), pre-populated configuration files and Attendant Console.

Note:
The instructor will assign each student to a pod. Each pod consists of a BE3k, four virtual Windows workstations with CIPC phone clients. Additionally students can connect with their own laptops to the pod using the AnyConnect VPN client and can register a CIPC phone on their laptop to the lab BE3k.

Exercise 1 : Installing Cisco IP Communicator on Students Local computer
Objective: The main objective of this exercise is to install the CIPC on the students local computer.

NOTE: Students that cannot or choose not to install the CIPC on their local computer will be able to complete the lab exercises and configure/test phone features but will not hear any sound from the lab exercises (phone ringing, auto attendant etc.)
Introduction: This exercise installs the Cisco IP Communicator(CIPC) software on the students local computer to allow the student to have a phone they can connect and register to the Business Edition 3000 in the lab. The students local phone can be used for testing features configured in the lab complete with sound which is unavailable in a VNC connection.

Step 1: Download the CIPC software from the instructor or from CCO to your local PC and double click on the Setup icon. Go through the installation wizard to complete the installation of the softphone to your workstation.

Step 2: Click OK.

Exercise 2: Running First Time Setup on new BE3K system


Step 1: Using a browser on your local computer, connect to the lab ASA at: Instructor will provide the unique username and password for each pod.

https://128.107.89.254/.

Step 2: Open up a VNC Connection to Johns workstation. This will allow you to remote control the John computer located in the lab.

Page 13

Step 3: Open Internet Explorer on Johns workstation

Step 4: Connect to 192.168.1.250. Enter in Username and password. The Factory Default is admin,

Page 14

Step 5: After logging in the First Time Setup Wizard will initialize. The first option is for changing the country and language. Click Next to the go to the next step.

Step 6: Enter in a username and password for the administrator account. For the lab purposes use admin, cisco123 so that it will be easy to remember. Click Next to continue.

NOTE: In a customer scenario it is advisable to give the admin account a different name and assign the account a complex password for security purposes.

Page 15

Step 7: Install license screen appears. Click Next to continue.

NOTE: The license file tab is empty because this software is a lab only version of BE3K and does not require licenses. In a customer account it will be necessary to configure licenses for each user based on system usage and phone types. The Quick Pricing Tool (QPT) is excellent in quoting and helping to understand each license required (and the quantity) to be ordered for the customer.

Page 16

Step 8: This lab will use a pre-populated configuration file for pre-staging system information. Select Automatic for the Setup Mode. Browse to the Desktop and find the file named configure_Pod_X (where X is the student Pod #). Click Upload. The configuration information will load. This may take a couple of minutes.

Step 9: At this point all the information from the configuration file has been populated into the system. Click Finish to continue.

Page 17

Step 10: After clicking finish, the system will write the new configuration and reboot the BE3K system. You can close Johns Internet Explorer. NOTE: At this point the BE3K will reboot. It will take approximately ten minutes until the server becomes available again.
