CCM User webpage

Unanswered Question
Mar 8th, 2007

I have a CCM Cluster with 4 servers. Very much interested in knowing, what do you all provide as the CCM User web page to end users. In the past, i have given the Publisher's URL to end users for the CCM User webpage. Do you usually give out to end users the subscriber's address or publisher's address in the URL ?


I have this problem too.

We wanted to protect our voice servers from any potential DoS attacks, so we installed a reverse proxy. Users connect to the reverse proxy and the proxy communicates to the publisher.

The proxy also allows you to limit what a user can access. If you allow direct access, they can access any webpage on the publisher, like ccmadmin or the corporate directory or the tomcat admin page. Granted they have to know the URL, but it's not like those aren't published on the web.

I've looked at the IIS settings, and it is possible to limit access to IP address to specific web pages, but it's ugly.

thats how i have set it up right now. I am thinking of setting up a loadbalancer to resolve the dns name to multiple addresses round robin.

I dont see a problem with that. I think though, but I cant find the document, cisco recommends it be on the publisher for the use of CCMuser. Even though it works off subscribers, there is more of a delay if the user logs into ccm on the subscriber, makes changes and expects something to happen. The subscriber wont make the change until it replicates to the publisher database.

I could be completely off and need more coffee this morning as well....

Wont hurt though to try and test it out.

I think u should give them only the IP address of the Publisher is it the only server that is allowed to change the configuration.

I have been faced with a smilliar problem. you can setup DNS service on all callmanagers and then make an entry for a name "say callmanager" with IP address equal to the IP address of the server youa are on. so when a DNS request sent to server 1 with the name Callmanager it will reply with its IP address and so on for the other server. ofcourse you have to configure the clinets PCs with the new DNS servers (you can add it to the already configured servers). hope this helps
