Service Appliance 100 Overview
This document is designed for planners and system administrators looking to deploy
ShoreTel® Service Appliance 100 (referred to throughout this document as SA-100) units
in their ShoreTel system to perform conferencing and instant message services.
The SA-100 is a ShoreTel appliance that installs on your network and augments the
ShoreTel system with conferencing and instant messaging services. The SA-100 gives
ShoreTel system users the ability to create and participate in scheduled and impromptu
media-rich conferences and in instant messaging. The SA-100s support audio and Web
conferences, allows third-party calendars such as Microsoft® Outlook® to schedule
conferences, and supports load distribution whereby SA-100 units work together to
provide least-cost-routing to reduce telephony cost.
This chapter presents an overview of the ShoreTel Service Appliance 100 (SA-100),
including a description of the integrated applications and capacities to guide you in
planning your installation. The topics are discusses in this chapter include:

About the ShoreTel SA-100
The ShoreTel SA-100 is a 1U, dedicated, plug-and-play appliance designed to integrate
seamlessly into the ShoreTel system and to install where you need it on your network to
provide cost-effective conferencing and instant messaging (IM) services for ShoreTel
system users.
The 1U footprint means that unit is suitable for 19-inch equipment racks. The unit is
shipped with a versatile rack-mounting kit that easily accommodates different rack styles
and a locking ShoreTel front bezel.

SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
Chapter 1: Service Appliance 100 Overview
The SA-100 is a node that installs on a ShoreTel server site and performs processing
functions for conference calls and IM sessions. In conference calls, the SA-100 serves as a
hub that receives audio and data streams from the participants, bundles the streams, and
broadcasts the bundles to the other conference participants. The SA-100 also maintains
conference Web pages and manages IM sessions for users.
ShoreTel Telephony Management Service (TMS)and other ShoreTel software installed on
the SA-100 ensures the integration of the unit into the ShoreTel system. This allows the
system to use a universal conference number while directing conference requests to the
appropriate appliance in environments where more than one SA-100 is installed. The
software also allows the system to collect and store call data from the SA-100 where it can
be retrieved and viewed as Call Detail Records (CDR) in ShoreWare Director.
The conferencing and instant messaging services the SA-100 provide seamlessly integrate
with user desktop applications such as ShoreTel Communicator and Microsoft Outlook.
1.2
Distributed Conferencing Capabilities
ShoreTel SA-100s are scalable. Each SA-100 supports up to 50 ports allowing as many as 50
total participants in the aggregate of conference calls or 500 IM users. A ShoreTel system
can support up to five SA-100. That means that a ShoreTel system can support up to 250
aggregate participants or 2500 IM users.
In deployment, SA-100s are assigned to ShoreTel sites (regions managed by a ShoreTel
server). SA-100 may be assigned to physical or logical ShoreTel sites. One SA-100 must be
assigned to the ShoreTel Headquarters site or the headquarters backup site which may be
located anywhere on the network (see the ShoreTel 12: ShoreTel System Administration Guide
for information about creating ShoreTel server sites).
NOTE We recommend that you create backup sites for each SA-100 that you deploy.
When multiple SA-100s are deployed, the ShoreTel system automatically assigns a
conference request to the appropriate appliance based on the conference information.
Multiple deployment also allows automatic failover to be implemented whereby the
ShoreTel server can reroute conference requests to other appliances should a SA-100
experience a connectivity or hardware problem.
1.3
Single System Management
The ShoreTel system is a comprehensive unified communications solution. It allows you to
manage the entire ShoreTel network from a single point of entry: ShoreWare Director. After
you install the SA-100 on the network, you must register the unit with ShoreWare Director,
use ShoreWare Director to configure the unit for operation, and configure the system to use
the SA-100. This document describes how to use ShoreWare Director to register the SA-100
and perform the set up required to use the appliance in the ShoreTel system. For
information about using ShoreWare Director, refer to the ShoreTel 12: ShoreTel System
Administration Guide.
NOTE The ShoreTel system provides automated software distribution for all components
on the system including the SA-100. When you add a new SA-100 to the system, it
is automatically upgraded to the current software release by the ShoreTel server.
When you upgrade the ShoreTel system, SA-100s will automatically upgrade as
required when the device restarts.

Integrated Services
The SA-100 allows the ShoreTel system to provide conferencing to ShoreTel users. The SA100 supports the following types of conferencing:
•
Audio-only conferences
•
Web-only conferences
•
Web and audio conferences
•
Instant messaging
This section provides a brief description about the types of conferences the SA-100
supports.
1.4.1
Audio-only Conferences
Each SA-100 provides 50 ports for audio conferences. Up to 15 of those ports can be used
for high definition (HD) audio. Ports are not reserved but allocated on a first-come-firstserve basis. When all of the audio ports on an SA-100 are in use, calls that initiate new
conferences are routed to an available SA-100. New calls to join an existing conference are
routed to an auto attendant and informed that there are no available ports. When all of the
ports available to the system are in use, all callers that access the conference receive a
message that the conference is full.
Similarly, when the number of conference participants exceeds the number of audio
conference licenses you have, the extra participants receive an unavailable message.
1.4.2
Web Conference Service
Each SA-100 provides 30 ports for Web conferences. Ports are not reserved but allocated on
a first-come-first-serve basis. When all of the Web ports on an SA-100 are in use, calls that
initiate new Web conferences are routed to an available SA-100. New participants trying to
join an existing Web conference are given a message stating that there are no available
ports. When all of the ports available to the system are in use, all new participants are a
statement that no ports are available.
Similarly, when the number of conference participants exceeds the number of Web
conference licenses you have, the extra participants are issued a message stating that no
ports are available.
1.4.3
Instant Messaging Service
Each SA-100 provides support for up to 500 IM users. This service provides the Instant
Messaging server to be used with ShoreTel Communicator for Windows and with Apple's
iChat client. As it is tightly coupled with Communicator, the user does not have to
authenticate specifically with the IM service.
For detailed explanations and usage of available features for each Application, consult the
ShoreTel Conferencing User Guide.

1.6
Service Appliance Failover
The ShoreTel system is designed to provide high availability throughout the system. The
SA-100 is designed to provide high availability in other ways. The system is set up so that
you can assign each SA-100 a primary and backup ShoreTel server to manage the unit. If
the primary ShoreTel server fails or is otherwise unavailable, the backup server takes over
the call management duties without interrupting conferencing services. The SA-100 also
uses a dual-port Ethernet card. The ports are designated as primary and secondary, and use
the same IP address. You can connect both ports to the same network to protect against a
port or cable failure, or you can connect each port to a separate network to ensure that if
the primary network fails the unit continues to provide conference services unabated.
1.7
Service Appliance Logs and Records
ShoreTel SA-100 provide audio and Web conference data to the ShoreTel system that is
collected in the call detail record (CDR) database. The ShoreTel system can collate the data
and issue various types of reports about SA-100 activity.
The SA-100 also maintains data log files that can be used for troubleshooting.
1.8
Integration with ShoreTel Communicator and
Microsoft Outlook
The SA-100 integrates with Microsoft Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Outlook 2010 to
provide integrated one-click conference scheduling in conjunction with user calender
appointments. Additionally, ShoreTel Conferencing services integrate with ShoreTel
Communicator for Web conferencing integration with scheduled, reservationless and
Instant Conferences.
See the ShoreTel Conferencing User Guide for details on the use of these features.

Make sure you determine the need for audio conferencing, Web conferencing and
Instant Messaging services.
Make sure you determine licensing requirements
Make sure you determine the placement of SA-100 within the ShoreTel system
topology, including external Web access and security considerations.
Make sure you determine WAN considerations, quality and bandwidth.
Determining Your Conferencing Needs
The ShoreTel single management system makes it easy for you to effectively and costefficiently provide conference and IM services for your users. The ShoreTel conferencing
solution is flexible allowing you to install a single SA-100 unit to provide services
company-wide or multiple units deployed regionally to handle services for local users
which can save on long-distance cost when your regions are in distant locations.
In determining how best to deploy SA-100s in your environment, consider the following:
ShoreTel 12.1
•
The number of simultaneous conferences you want to support.
•
The types of conferences you expect to support.
•
The number of IM sessions you expect to support.
•
The typology of your network.
•
Load balancing
•
Failover (redundancy)

SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
2.2.1
Chapter 2: Planning and System Design
Determining the Number of SA-100s to Deploy
Among the factors to consider in determining how many SA-100 to deploy are the
capabilities of the SA-100. Table 2-1 provides information about the maximum number of
participants an SA-100 can support by conference type.
Table 2-1
Maximum Number of Participants Supported Per Conference Type
Conference Type
G711
G722 (High Definition)
HTTP
HTTPS
IM
Maximum Number of Conferences
50
15
50
30
500 (Sessions)
The examples below show how you can use the information in the table to determine your
deployment needs
Example 1: In your planning you determine that you require the capacity for 125
concurrent, standard audio (G.711) conferences. To determine how many
SA-100 your system requires, divide the number of conferences you
determine that you require by the maximum number of conferences the
SA-100 supports, i.e. 125 ÷ 50 = 2.5. To satisfy the requirement for your
network, you would install three SA-100s.
Example 2: You determine that you require 20 high definition audio (G.722)
conferences and 90 standard audio conferences. An SA-100 can support no
more than 15 HD conferences with up to 35 standard conferences
simultaneously. To determine how many SA-100s you need, assign the first
15 HD conferences and the first 35 standard conferences to one SA-100.
That leaves 5 HD conferences and 55 standard conferences to be
supported. You can combine the remaining 5HD with 45 standard
conferences to achieve the capacity for a second SA-100. That leaves 10
standard conferences which can be supported by a third SA-100.
Consequently, you will need three SA-100 to satisfy this scenario.
Example 3: You determine that you require the capacity for 150 concurrent HTTPS
Web conference sessions. The SA-100 supports up to 30 HTTPS Web
conferences simultaneously. To determine how many SA-100s you need,
divide the total number of HTTPS conferences by the maximum number
of HTTPS conferences the SA-100 supports, i.e. 150 ÷ 30 = 5. You need five
SA-100 to satisfy the requirement in this scenario.
Example 4: You determine that you require 600 configured IM sessions. The SA-100
supports up to 500 IM sessions simultaneously. To determine how many
SA-100 you need to satisfy this requirement, divide the total number of IM
sessions by the number of simultaneous IM sessions the SA-100 supports,
i.e. 600 ÷ 500 = 1. You need two SA-100s to satisfy this requirement.
2.2.2
Considering System Topology
The topology in which your ShoreTel system is install can be a factor in determining how
you deploy the SA-100. For ShoreTel systems installed over multiple sites (a site is an area
managed by a ShoreTel server), whether those sites are in the same building or spread
across diverse geographical regions, it may be more effective and efficient to install SA-100
units at specific sites. For example, if your experience includes inconsistent WAN
16
Chapter 2: Planning and System Design
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
connections, limited WAN bandwidth or known WAN quality issues, installing SA-100s at
regional sites and implementing load balancing can minimize the effect the WAN has on
conference calls. Similarly, if your ShoreTel system is servicing users in different cities or
countries and many of the conferences are held at local sites, you can save on long distance
charges by installing SA-100s at the local sites to handle local conferences.
NOTE We recommend that you do not install the SA-100 in a network where latency
exceeds 100ms. To operate the SA-100 optimally, network latency and jitter must
be minimized. Also we recommend that the ping lag time between the SA-100 and
the ShoreTel headquarters server does not exceed 200ms. This lag time affects how
quickly Web pages refresh.
2.2.3
Considering Load Balancing
The ShoreTel system supports load balancing for conferences using the SA-100. The
ShoreTel system manages all calls in the system including conference calls from a single
source. That means that when a conference is initiated, the ShoreTel manager can assess
conference resources and shift the conference to an available SA-100 if the local unit does
not have sufficient resources.
2.2.4
Considering Redundancy
The ShoreTel SA-100 supports failover in cases where a unit loses connectivity or fails. In
the event of a loss of network connectivity or unit failure, the ShoreTel system will redirect
new conference calls to another SA-100 unit if resources are available.
2.3
Licensing Requirements
Audio Conferencing and Web Conferencing services are enabled through keyed licenses for
Audio Conference ports and Web Conference ports. Licenses enable concurrent access to
the services, rather than per user or per appliance. Instant Messaging is enabled through
the use of Professional Access level and above.
Example: You have a single SA-100 which supports 50 G711 audio conference
streams and 30 secure Web sessions. To run a concurrent audio/secure Web
conference for 30 participants would require 30 Audio Conference and 30
Web Conference licenses.
These keys are added to the system in the same manner as existing keyed licenses.

Network Requirements and
Preparation
Use the information in this chapter to determine specific network requirements for the
ShoreTel Service Appliance 100. After determining the network requirements, you will be
ready to configure your network appropriately. The topics discussed in this chapter

Overview
The SA-100 performs conference processing for the ShoreTel system. It mixes the audio
and data streams, then distributes the mixed streams to participating endpoints. It also
maintains communication with the ShoreTel Headquarters server which stores data that is
used in the conference pages. During a conference, the conference page will be refreshed as
the host uses it.
The SA-100 behaves like an endpoint in a conference call. It relies on the ShoreTel server to
perform call setup and teardown. In order to maximize the productivity enhancements
provided by these services, the underlying network must be robust and properly
configured.
This chapter provides additional considerations relative to the Service Appliance 100 and
the integrated applications.
3.2
Network Requirements
ShoreTel Conferencing services require that the underlying network meet all ShoreTel
recommendations. Refer to the ShoreTel 12 Planning and Installation Guide for more
information regarding ShoreTel system recommendations. The following lists provides
things you to consider when planning your system for audio and Web conferences.

IP Addressing
The SA-100 requires an IP address with a permanent lease or a static IP address. Either of
the following methods may be used to assign network parameters:
•
DHCP from a network server (default out-of-the-box option)
•
A static IP configured through the maintenance port on the back of the SA-100.
The SA-100 also requires a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) during configuration in
ShoreWare Director.
See "Installing the Service Appliance 100" section on page 33 for more information about
configuring the IP address.
3.4
Time Services
The SA-100 requires a connection to time services in order to support ShoreTel
Conferencing services.
The address of the NTP server can be provided to the SA-100 through DHCP option 004 (if
DHCP is used) or configured statically.
20
Chapter 3: Network Requirements and Preparation

See the ShoreTel Planning and Installation Guide for detailed instructions on selecting an
NTP public server if you do not run an NTP server within your organization.
3.5
Network Security
This section discusses network security concerns that can come up when you deploy the
SA-100.
3.5.1
Security Considerations
3.5.1.1
Internal Firewall
The SA-100 Appliance can be deployed in the DMZ, allowing external participants to
access Web conferences. Positioning in the DMZ places the Service Appliance 100 in a
privileged security position within the customer's network infrastructure. Therefore, the
SA-100 features an embedded, customer administered, firewall to control access between
unsecure external environments and internal networks. Proactive security policies and
strict management of evolving internet security risks are essential to maintain network
security.
3.5.1.2
Security Considerations
As security threats evolve new vulnerabilities may be discovered that require immediate
resolution. ShoreTel provides upgrades to the appliance software and updates for critical
security patches. If required, these upgrades are distributed independently from the
standard release cycle for software upgrades.
Should critical security patches be required to the appliance operating or file systems, a
new mini-installer is used to implement immediate fixes to the platform images. This
allows the customer’s IT support to quickly protect their networks without having to
complete an entire release upgrade.
Hotfixes or patches to the appliance application images will continue to be addressed via
the traditional process of incorporating these into the next build or release.
Procedures to apply security patches to the appliance operating system and applications are
described in the ShoreTel 12.1: Maintenance Guide and are also distributed via e-mail or
other customer notification pathways such as the ShoreTel support website.
3.6
Deployment Scenarios
The ShoreTel Service Appliance 100 may be deployed both internal to the LAN or
externally in a company’s DMZ.
Deployment scenarios may include multiple installations of appliances in a ShoreTel
system.
However, in any multi-appliance deployment scenario, if one appliance is accessible for
external access then all appliances must also be accessible for external access.
ShoreTel 12.1

SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
3.6.1
Chapter 3: Network Requirements and Preparation
Deployment in the LAN
In the scenario where the SA-100 is deployed on the trusted internal network as shown in
Figure 3-1, the following apply:
Figure 3-1
3.6.2
Deployment in the LAN
•
The network requires port-forwarding through the firewall which is restricted to
Web ports (80-unsecure & 443-HTTPS). Alternatively, a reverse-proxy server can be
used instead of port-forwarding but this requires the provision of an additional
server.
•
The network requires DNS configuration both internally to resolve internal
addresses and externally to resolve to external addresses.
•
Alternatively, a network can be configured with DNS configured for external
addressing only and a host file configurated to handle traffic internally.
Deployment in the DMZ
Deploying the ShoreTel Appliance 100 (SA-100)in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) is the
preferred method to facilitate external traffic. This requires the firewall between the DMZ
and the LAN to be properly configured for ShoreTel Voice Switch ports as shown in Figure
3-2.
22
Chapter 3: Network Requirements and Preparation
Figure 3-2
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
Deployment in the DMZ
WARNING The SA-100 will not function if it is positioned in the DMZ and network
traffic initiated from the trusted zone to the SA-100 goes through NAT
(Network Address Translation). The SA-100 will display a “Lost
Communication” status in ShoreWare Director.
3.6.2.1 Requirements
• Enable routable traffic between the DMZ and LAN. Network Address Translation
(NAT) can not be used for network traffic between these points.
•
Adequate bandwidth between DMZ and LAN with a minimum of voice latency and
jitter.
•
DNS (Domain Name System) configuration to resolve both internal and external
addresses. A DNS configured to external addressing only, with a host file configured
to handle traffic internally, may be used as an alternative.
•
If an SA-100 is made available from the Internet, all other SA-100 appliances need to
be accessible and addressable from the Internet.
•
The network requires port-forwarding through the firewall which is restricted to
Web ports (80-unsecure & 443-HTTPS).
NOTE ShoreTel does not support using a reverse-proxy server instead of portforwarding.

Ethernet Ports
The SA-100 uses an auto-sensing, 10/100/1000 Ethernet interface. Two RJ-48C Ethernet
connections (GB1 and GB2) are provided to provide fault-tolerant deployment. The ports
use the same MAC Ethernet address and IP address but are independent of each other and
can be used in any sequence. However, when both ports are connected, only one will be
active at a time. Should the active interface lose the link, the other interface is made active.
You must use Category 5 or higher cabling.
The SA-100 provides two methods of fault tolerance. To protect against Ethernet switch
failure, connect Ethernet ports GB1 and GB2 to separate Ethernet switches. To protect
against port or cable failure, connect LAN1 and LAN2 to separate ports on the same
Ethernet switch.

This section describes how to set the IP address on the SA-100 manually. ShoreTel
recommends that you use a static IP address for the SA-100. You can also use DHCP to
assign the unit an IP address. If you choose to use DHCP, you must configure the DHCP
server with address information for the SA-100 prior to turning on the unit. You can use
the instruction provided in this section to obtain the Ethernet address of the unit.
34
Chapter 5: Installing the Service Appliance 100
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
NOTE The SA-100 is shipped from the factory configured to use the DHCP to set
IP address. That means that unless otherwise set, the first time the unit is turned
on with an Ethernet cable connecting it to the network the unit will seek an
IP address from the DHCP server on the network.
To configure the IP address manually, you need the following:
•
Valid IP address for the segment in which you want to install the SA-100.
•
Computer with terminal emulation software installed.
•
Null modem DB-9 serial cable.
Step 1 Connect the DB-9 serial cable to the serial port on the back panel of the SA100 and a computer.
Step 2 Hook up the SA-100 power cable and turn the unit and computer on.
NOTE The SA-100 performs a start-up process when it is turned on. A
sequence of numbers flash on the LED panel during start up, and a
solid LED appears when the process is complete. The process takes
about 30 seconds.
Step 3 On the computer, start a terminal emulation program and set the following
parameters:
•
Baud rate: 19200 bps

5.6
Using DHCP to Set the IP Address
You can use DHCP to assign IP address information to the SA-100. If you want to use
DHCP to configure the SA-100, be sure to configure the DCHCP server with information
for the SA-100 before you connect the unit to the network and turn it on. Doing so makes
it easier to locate the unit on the network after the IP address is assigned.
To set DHCP to assign IP address information to the SA-100,
•
Specify a permanent lease for the SA-100.
•
Provide the Ethernet address of the SA-100 to the DHCP server
NOTE: You can use a terminal emulator as described in "Setting the IP Address
Manually" section on page 34 to obtain the Ethernet address from the SA100.
•
Make sure that the NTP server IP address is passed to the SA-100.
Refer to the documentation for the DHCP server for instructions on how to configure the
DHCP server to set parameters on a network device.
5.7
Plugging the SA-100 into the Network
The ShoreTel SA-100 is equipped with two Ethernet ports. The second port provides faulttolerant protection by providing a second circuit for the unit to communicate with the
network should a failure occur within the first circuit. You can connect both ports to the
same network or connect the second port to a remote network. The first method provides
protection in case cable or port fails. The second method provides protection in case the
SA-100 cannot communicate with the gateway to which it is assigned. This section
describes how to connect the Ethernet ports.
To connect the Ethernet ports, do the following:
NOTE For guaranteed voice quality, we recommend that you connect all ShoreTel
components to an isolated LAN segment.
NOTE If you are planning to use both Ethernet ports and DHCP, turn the power on to the
unit and let the network assign an IP address to the first port before you connect
ShoreTel 12.1
37
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
Chapter 5: Installing the Service Appliance 100
the second Ethernet port. This will ensure that the port you want the SA-100 to
use primarily for operation will be correctly identified by the system.
Step 1 On the back of the unit, locate the GB1 Ethernet jack in the middle of the
panel and plug one end of a Category 5 or higher Ethernet cable into it.
Step 2 Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the LAN switch managing the
network segment to which you want connect the SA-100.
•
•
If you are connecting one cable only, stop here.
If you are using DHCP, start the unit and let the network configure it with
an IP address. You can use the process described in “Setting the IP Address
Manually” on page -34 to view the IP address.
Step 3 To implement failover with the unit, plug one end of a Category 5 or higher
Ethernet cable into the GB2 jack on the back of the SA-100 and the other end
into a different LAN segment.
Once network communications are established, LEDs embedded in the Ethernet ports
indicate that the unit is connected to the network and when the unit is receiving and
transmitting data.
5.8
Connecting the Bezel
A locking front bezel and key are included with the SA-100. The bezel contains a power
button and fits over the front panel blocking access to all items installed in the panel. Refer
to the Quick Install Guide shipped with the unit for instruction about installing and
locking the bezel.
5.9
Configuring the Unit for Operation
After you have mounted the SA-100 in a rack and connected it to the network, you must
configure the ShoreTel system to use the unit. ShoreWare Director is used to configure the
ShoreTel system to use the SA-100. The following chapter, Site Requirements and
Preparation, starting on page 27, describes how to configure the system in ShoreWare
Director to use the SA-100. For information about using ShoreWare Director, refer to the
ShoreTel 12.1: System Administration Guide.
Configuring the system to use the SA-100 also requires IP address information for the unit.
You can use a terminal emulator session to obtain this information from the SA-100. See
“Setting the IP Address Manually” on page -34 for instructions on how to use a terminal
emulator with the SA-100.

and to users of any site in the ShoreTel hierarchy that shares a branch with the installation
site. Unless an SA-100 is installed on or registered with the ShoreTel HQ site, all system
users may not have access to SA-100 services. To ensure that all system users have access to
SA-100 services when there is no unit installed on the HQ site, you can register a backup
site containing an SA-100 with the HQ server. Registering the backup site with the HQ
server establishes a hierarchical branch that allows all users throughout the system access
to SA-100 services. To register a backup SA-100 site on the HQ server, do the following:
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director.
Step 2 Click Administration > Sites. The Sites page appears.
Step 3 In the Site column, select HQ server site. The configuration page for the HQ
site appears.
Step 4 In the Service Appliance Conference Backup Site field, select the that you
want to use as a backup site.
NOTE The backup site may be a logical site.
Step 5 Click Save.

Setting a System Failover Mechanism for Conferencing
In keeping with providing redundancy throughout the system, the ShoreTel system
provides a mechanism that ensures that conference resources remain available if the
ShoreTel site server to which the SA-100 is registered fails. When you register an SA-100
with a site, you can also specify a backup ShoreTel site server the system can use to access
the SA-100 if the primary site fails. To assign an SA-100 a backup ShoreTel site server to
ensure failover of conferencing resource, do the following:
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director.
Step 2 Click Administration > Sites. The Sites page appears.
Step 3 In the Site column, select the ShoreTel server to which the SA-100 that you
wish to associate with a backup site is registered. The configuration page for
the site appears.
Step 4 In the Service Appliance Conference Backup Site field, select the that you
want to use as a backup site.
NOTE The backup site must be physically different from the primary site.
NOTE The backup site may be a logical site.
Step 5 Click Save.

Configuring HTTPS
ShoreTel support HTTPS for secure conference calls. Secure ShoreTel Web conferencing
uses 2048-bit encryption. To provide HTTPS security to conference users, you must upload
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates or Unified Communication Certificates (UCC) on
each SA-100 that you want to provide HTTPS security. This section describes how to obtain
an SSL certificate and how to install the certificate on SA-100 units.
6.4.7.1
Obtaining an SSL Certificate
If you already have an SSL certificate, you can install it on your SA-100. See "Uploading an
HTTPS Certificate" section on page 55 for instructions about installing an SSL certificate. If
you do not have an SSL certificate, ShoreTel recommends that you purchase an SSL
certificate from a reputable Certificate Authority (CA). To purchase such a certificate, you
must first create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) to present to the CA. You can create a
CSR in ShoreWare Director as follows:
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director as a user with administrator privilege. (The default
administrator, admin, cannot be used.)

which you want the SSL certificate.
Note If the CSR is for a wildcard certificate, you must prepend “*.” to the
common name (e.g. *.domain.com).
Note If the CSR is for a UCC, enter one only of the domain names for
which you want the certification. You will provide additional
domain names when you order the certificate.
•

Step 6 Click Create CRS. The ShoreTel system creates a CSR and a private key.
The system generates links that you can use to download the CSR and private
key. Download the CSR and private key--if required---and send them to the CA.
6.4.7.2
Uploading an HTTPS Certificate
This section describes how to upload HTTPS certificates. You can upload certificates for a
single SA-100 or for all of the SA-100 currently installed on your system depending upon
your certificate agreement. To upload HTTPS certificates, do the following:
NOTE Wildcard certificates that you upload are automatically transferred to all appliances
including units that you add to the system later.
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director as a user with administrator privilege. (The default
administrator, admin, cannot be used.)
Step 2 Click Administration > Platform Hardware > Voice Switches/Service
Appliances > Primary. The Primary Voice Switches/Service Appliances page
appears.
Step 3 Select an SA-100 listing and in the Quick Launch column click Launch. The

Step d In the Private Key field, enter or browse to the path to the file that contains
the Private Key that you want to use.
Step e Click Upload.
Step 6 Click Restart Web Server. This reboots the SA-100 and activates all certificates
when the unit restarts.
6.4.7.3
Enabling HTTPS
You must have a certificate to run HTTPS. If you already have a certificate, use the process
described in "Uploading an HTTPS Certificate" section on page 55 to upload it to the
appliance. (Wildcard certificates need be uploaded once only. These certificates are
automatically transferred to SA-100s already installed on the system and to new SA-100s
after they are installed.) If you do not have a certificate, you can obtain one (see "Obtaining
an SSL Certificate" section on page 52 for instruction about obtaining a certificate) or the
system will automatically create a self-signing SSL certificate and private key. A self-signing
certificate will allow an SA-100 to create and participate in HTTPS conferences, but as the
certificate is not issued by a third party HTTPS security is not optimized. When a selfsigning certificate is used, users trying to access the secure conference site will receive a
warning message that the security provided is not guarantied.
You can also enable HTTPS on selected SA-100 or on all SA-100 in your system. Because
the ShoreTel system uses a distributed approach, we recommends that you enable HTTPS
on all of your SA-100s. The distributed approach ShoreTel uses means that multiple SA100s can be used in a single conference. In conferences where HTTPS is used, SA-100s that
are not configured to use HTTPS cannot communicate with SA-100s that are using HTTPS
and are not allowed to join.
ShoreTel recommends that if you enable HTTPS on one SA-100 in your environment, that
you enable it on all SA-100s in your environment. Mixing HTTPS-enabled SA-100s with
SA-100s that do not have HTTPS enabled can cause problems. Users assigned to appliances
without HTTPS get an error when they try to access library files stored on an HTTPSenabled SA-100. The user is able to view the files, but a horizontal blue stripe appears on
the right hand side of the pane when they access the files.
This section describes how to enable HTTPS on an SA-100. To enable HTTPS on an SA100, do the following:
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director as a user with administrator privilege. (The default
administrator, admin, cannot be used.)
Step 2 Click Administration > Platform Hardware > Voice Switches/Service
Appliances > Primary. The Primary Voice Switches/Service Appliances page
appears.
Step 3 Select an SA-100 listing and in the Quick Launch column click Launch. The
Service Appliance Conference Administration Conferences page appears as
shown in Figure 6-11 on page 53.
Step 4 Click the HTTPS tab. The HTTPS tab appears as shown in Figure 6-12 on page

Complete Operational Testing of SA-100
After you have installed the SA-100, you should test the system to make sure that
conferencing and IM services are working properly before making them available to the
community. Testing should include the following tasks for both single appliance and multiappliance installations:
ShoreTel 12.1
•
Verify the ShoreTel Audio Conference service can be accessed on each appliance by
dialing the audio conference extension and then by pressing the conference button
on a user’s IP telephone.
•
Verify a user’s conference is hosted on their assigned SA-100.
•
Verify the Global ShoreTel Audio Conference extension routes users to the closest
appliance relative to the caller. Verify that once the User enters the conference access
code, the call is routed to the appliance that is hosting the conference.
•
Verify external callers can access audio conferences through the external numbers
established for audio conferencing access.
•
Verify default Music on hold (MoH) is broadcast from each appliance to a caller
using that appliance. If custom .wav files are used for MoH, verify each appliance has
been loaded with the correct .wav file and that this broadcasts while participants wait
for a conference to start.
•
Verify both internal and external Web participants can access the conference website
and enter and participate in Web conferences.
•
Verify the ShoreTel Conferencing service can successfully out-dial to selected
participants during conferences, both during participant login as well as when
directed by the conference host.
•
Verify Outlook integration is functioning properly by scheduling and accessing
ShoreTel meetings with Outlook appointments.
73
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
Chapter 8: Going Live and Training
•
Verify ShoreTel Communicator integration is functioning properly through the
ability to access Web meetings (both scheduled and Instant) from Communicator.
•
Verify Instant Messaging Presence, Privacy and IM chat capabilities function
correctly.
For multi-appliance installations, the following additional tasks should be accomplished:
8.2
•
Simulate overloaded conditions to verify a user’s conference is distributed to other,
less loaded appliances.
•
Verify conferencing failover capabilities function correctly by scheduling
conferences, disconnecting a user’s assigned appliance and then starting the
conference.
•
Verify IM users assigned to one SA-100 can successfully initiate IM sessions and
exchange presence information with user’s assigned to other SA-100 appliances.
Assign Users to Each SA-100
Make sure that the ShoreTel user you want to be able to create and host conferences or to
use instant messaging services is assigned to an SA-100. For information about assigning
ShoreTel users to an SA-100, see the "Creating SA-100 Users" section on page 57.
8.3
Verify Licensing
To enable ShoreTel Conferencing for all required users and to avoid a potential access
lockout, the following should be performed:
8.4
•
Ensure adequate audio conference and Web conference licenses are purchased to
allow all authorized users concurrent access to ShoreTel Conferencing services.
•
Ensure each user with IM access has been configured with ShoreTel Communicator
Professional access level, and that a keyed license is entered into the system for each
of those access levels. This will ensure the ShoreTel system does not lock out
Administrator access due to inadvertent license violations.

Backup and Restore
This chapter describes the process for enabling automatic backup of SA-100 files and data.
Should an appliance experience a catastrophic failure or a data corruption, the availability
of regular backup files can simplify recovery and minimize the cost of such a failure. The
topics discussed include:
9.1
•
"Service Appliance 100 Backup" section on page 77
•
"Service Appliance 100 Restore" section on page 79
Service Appliance 100 Backup
Daily backup of ShoreTel SA-100 appliances data is recommended to protect critical data
on the SA-100. This feature is not meant as a method of archiving or as a method for
retrieving accidentally deleted files.
The files containing user library data, conference recordings and user images, collectively
referred to as content files should be backed up on a daily basis.
Backup can occur while conferences are in progress including the files of any conference
currently in progress. However, only files that are not being modified will be backed up to
protect data integrity.
When the back up process starts, library content upload will be disabled. Library content
currently in the process of uploading will be allowed to complete before the back up starts.
Once back up is complete, upload of library content is re-enabled. If the user attempts to
upload content while the upload is disabled, they will see a message indicating that upload
is temporarily unavailable.
Any machine capable of supporting an FTP server can be the target of a backup. The FTP
server must be RFC 959 compliant and additionally support the commands MDTM and
SIZE. The FTP servers on Win2003 and WIN XP meet these requirements.
If multiple appliances are backing up to the same FTP server, the target directory should be
configured differently for each appliance.
An on-demand backup can be performed on demand by establishing an SSH or serial
connection to the appliance and then using CMCA ServicesMgr command line interface
(svccli) commands.
The backup will only execute if backup is enabled. See the ShoreTel Maintenance Guide for
detailed instructions for executing an on-demand backup.
NOTE ShoreTel recommends the SA-100 be installed on the same network as the FTP
backup server to avoid bandwidth issues.
NOTE The SA-100 can generate more than 1GB of data files per day and easily have more
than 100GB stored internally.
ShoreTel 12.1

SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
Chapter 9: Backup and Restore
To configure the SA-100 to perform automatic backups using an FTP server, do the
following:
Requirements:
•
Make sure that the FTP server is configured to allow the SA-100 to access and write
to it.
•
Make sure that port 21 is open and available on the FTP server for the SA-100 to use.
Note Port 21 is often blocked.
For more information about configuring automatic backup for ShoreTel services and
devices, refer to the Voicemail Model Switches section in the ShoreTel 12.1: System
Administration Guide.
Step 1 Launch ShoreWare Director.
Step 2 Select Administration > Platform Hardware > Voice Switches / Service
Appliances > Primary. The Primary Voice Switches/ Servic Appliance page
appears.
Step 3 In the Name column, select the SA-100 that you want to configure for backup. The

Figure 9-1
Edit Service Appliance 100 Page
Step 4 Scroll down to the Backup section and do the following:
78
•
Check the Enable Daily Backup check box.
•
In the IP Address field, enter the IP address of the FTP server that you want the unit
to use for backup.
Chapter 9: Backup and Restore
•
SA-100 Planning, Installation and Administration Guide
In the FTP Port field, enter port number that you want the SA-100 to use to connect
to the FTP server. The default value is 21.
NOTE The FTP port must be set to 21. The SA-100 can only perform backup and
restore against a FTP server running on port 21.
9.2
•
In the Directory field, enter the name of the directory to which you want the SA-100
to back up files on the FTP server. This file will be create the first time a back up is
run.
•
In the User ID field, enter the user name that you want the SA-100 to use to login to
the FTP server account for backup.
•
In the Password fields, enter the password the SA-100 needs to use to login to the
FTP.
Service Appliance 100 Restore
There is not a ShoreWare Director utility for the purpose of restoring SA-100 content.
Restore is performed on demand through establishing an SSH or serial connection to the
appliance and then using CMCA ServicesMgr command line interface (svccli) commands.
Restoring will copy the content files from the previous backup into the appliance. During
restore all appliance services will be stopped.
The restore can occur on non-empty directories, but will not delete files that are in the file
system but not part of the last back up. Files that are created after the previous back up
remain intact. However, files that have been modified since the previous backup will be
replaced by the backup version.
Files that have been deleted since the previous backup will be restored into the appliance
but will not be accessible as the database links to deleted files are not maintained. If these
files are required, they can be retrieved by establishing an SSH or serial connection to the
appliance and retrieving them manually.
Restore procedures are considered non-routine and are not detailed in this guide. For
detailed instructions, see the ShoreTel 12.1: Maintenance Guide.
