You can configure a connection between a CTRS running version 1.8 and a Cisco Show and Share server
running version 5.2.2 or 5.2.3. After the connection is established, Cisco Show and Share can be used
for uploading, managing, sharing, and viewing video and audio content in your enterprise network.
To configure a connection between a CTRS and a Cisco Show and Share server, you will need:
•
The superuser account credentials—The CTRS requires superuser access to the Cisco Show and
Share server in order to upload media files.
•
The Cisco Show and Share server security certificate—The CTRS uses the installed Cisco Show and
Share server certificate to establish a trusted, secure connection between the CTRS and the Cisco
Show and Share server. The Cisco Show and Share server security certificate file can be obtained
from the Cisco Show and Share server administrator.
For information about downloading and installing the Cisco Show and Share server security
certificate, see the “Installing the Cisco Show and Share Server Security Certificate on the CTRS”
section on page 4-23.

Understanding the DMM User Name LDAP Attribute Field
The DMM User Name LDAP Attribute field maps to the LDAP attribute specified in the Login User
Name field of the Digital Media Manager (DMM), which manages Cisco Show and Share. This mapping
ensures that the CTRS associates the correct username to a video while it is being uploaded to the Cisco
Show and Share server. If the username is incorrect, the video will not be saved to the correct user
account on the Cisco Show and Share server.
You need to change the default setting if your organization does not use the values of the LDAP
samAccountName attribute as the source for the Cisco Show and Share usernames. Instead, your
organization might use the values of another LDAP attribute or have created a customized LDAP
attribute.
If one of these scenarios applies to your organization, contact the Show and Share administrator to get
the LDAP attribute specified in the Login User Name field of the DMM, then enter the attribute in the
DMM “Login User Name Attribute” field of the Cisco Show and Share page in the CTRS Administrative
UI.

Configuring SNMP Traps on CTRS
SNMP provides the ability to send traps, or notifications, to inform the system administrator when one
or more conditions have occurred. Traps are network packets that contain information about a
component of CTRS. The information is status or error-related.
To configure SNMP traps on CTRS, you must complete all of the following steps:
•
Start the SNMP service
•
Configure an SNMP user
Cisco TelePresence Recording Server Release 1.8 Administration Guide
4-42
OL-24271-01
Chapter 4
Configuring CTRS Administration Software
System Settings
•
Configure an SNMP trap destination
•
Enable CTRS to send SNMP trap notifications
Starting the SNMP Service
To start the SNMP service, you must do the following:
Step 1
Log in to the CTRS CLI.
Step 2
Run the utils service start command:
utils service start Cisco SNMP Service
Configuring an SNMP User
To configure an SNMP user on CTRS, you must do the following:
Step 1
In the CTRS CLI, configure an SNMP user with the command:
set snmp user add version username access [passphrase] [level]
Syntax Description
•
version is the SNMP version, either 3 or 2c (both SNMP v3 and v2c are supported)
•
username is the SNMP username (SNMP v3) or community string (SNMP v2c)
•
access defines which SNMP tasks can be accessed; values are r (read), w (write), and rw (read and
write)
•
passphrase (optional) is the SNMP v3 user passphrase
•
level (optional) is the SNMP v3 level; value is one of the following:
– authNoPriv (default) is authentication with no encryption. The correct authentication key is
required to write messages, but no encryption/decryption key is required to read the contents of
the message.
– authPriv is authentication with encryption. The correct authentication key is required to write
messages and the correct encryption/decryption key is required to read the contents of the
message.
– noauthNoPriv is no authentication with no encryption. Neither an authentication key nor
encryption/decryption key is required to write and read messages.
Note
The passphrase and level parameters are not required for SNMP v2c.
The following example configures an SNMP v3 user, with the username testusr, granting read and write
access, and with the passphrase testpass:
set snmp user add 3 testusr rw testpass

System Settings
Configuring an SNMP Trap Destination
To configure an SNMP trap destination on CTRS, you must do the following:
Step 1
In the CTRS CLI, configure an SNMP trap destination with the command:
set snmp trapdest add version username destination [passphrase] [level] [engineID]
Syntax Description
•
version is the SNMP version, either 3 or 2c
•
username is the SNMP username (SNMP v3) or community string (SNMP v2c)
•
destination is the destination host, in the format n.n.n.n[:port}
•
passphrase (optional) is the SNMP v3 user passphrase
•
level (optional) is the SNMP v3 level; value is one of the following:
– authNoPriv (default) is authentication with no encryption. The correct authentication key is
required to write messages, but no encryption/decryption key is required to read the contents of
the message.
– authPriv is authentication with encryption. The correct authentication key is required to write
messages and the correct encryption/decryption key is required to read the contents of the
message.
– noauthNoPriv is no authentication with no encryption. Neither an authentication key nor
encryption/decryption key is required to write and read messages.
•
engineID (optional) is the SNMP v3 engine ID to use for the trap
The following example configures an SNMP v3 trap destination with the username testusr, at host
64.101.180.49:162, passphrase testpass, and engine ID 0x8000DEECAFE8111BEEFADE:
set snmp trapdest add 3 testusr 64.101.180.49:162 testpass authpriv
0x8000DEECAFE8111BEEFADE
Step 2
Configure the SNMP client device according to the instructions for that device. For instructions on
configuring a CTS Release 1.8 endpoint, for example, see the SNMP Settings sections of the
Cisco TelePresence Administration Guide for CTS Software Release 1.8.
Enabling CTRS to Send SNMP Trap Notifications
The final step to configuring an SNMP trap on CTRS is to enable CTRS to send SNMP trap notifications.
To enable CTRS to send SNMP trap notifications, you must do the following:
•
Using an SNMP client, set the clognotificationsenabled MIB to True.
SNMP Trap notifications are now enabled for CTRS.
Modifying SNMP Trap Settings
You can modify existing SNMP trap destinations and user access.
To modify an SNMP trap destination, do the following:
Step 1
Delete the existing trap destination with the command:
Cisco TelePresence Recording Server Release 1.8 Administration Guide
4-44
OL-24271-01
Chapter 4
Configuring CTRS Administration Software
System Settings
set snmp trapdest del
After entering the above command, the CTRS CLI lists all configured SNMP trap destinations and
prompts you to specify the trap destination to delete.
Step 2
Configure the new SNMP trap destination with this command:
set snmp trapdest add version username destination [passphrase] [engineID] [level]
For details on the syntax, refer to Syntax Description, page 4-44.
The following example configures an SNMP v3 trap destination with the username testusr, at host
192.168.180.122, passphrase testpass, and engine ID 0x8000DEECAFE8111BEEFADE:
set snmp trapdest add 3 testusr 192.168.180.122 testpass 0x8000DEECAFE8111BEEFADE
To modify SNMP user access to CTRS SNMP traps, do the following:
Step 1
Delete an existing SNMP user with the command:
set snmp user del version username
Syntax Description
•
version is the SNMP version, either 3 or 2c
•
username is the SNMP username (SNMP v3) or community string (SNMP v2c)
The following example deletes the SNMP v3 user testusr:
set snmp user del 3 testusr
Step 2
Configure the new SNMP user with the command:
set snmp user add version username access [passphrase] [level]
For details on the syntax, refer to Syntax Description, page 4-43.
The following example configures an SNMP v3 user, with the username newusr, granting read and write
access, and with the passphrase newpass:
set snmp user add 3 newusr rw newpass
