After you create clusters of IBM
® Sametime Media Manager Conference Manager and SIP Proxy and Registrar components, configure the Packet Switcher components to communicate with the cluster through the IBM WebSphere
® proxy server.
Before you begin
Install at least one Media Manager Packet Switcher component and start the server. Create and configure the Conference Manager and SIP Proxy and Registrar clusters.
About this task
By default, a Packet Switcher is configured to access the Conference Manager and the SIP Proxy and Registrar components directly, and must be reconfigured to communicate with clusters. Modify the Packet Switcher's stavconfig.xml
file to access the WebSphere
proxy servers used by the Conference Manager cluster and the SIP Proxy and Registrar cluster. The WebSphere
proxy server will direct SIP requests to available nodes in the cluster.
You will need to complete this task for every Packet Switcher.

- Modify the following settings:
|ConferenceServerHost||Use the host name of the computer where the WebSphere proxy server is installed for the Conference Manager cluster.|
|ConferenceServerPort||Use the PROXY_SIPS_ADDRESS port value of the same WebSphere proxy server (used by the Conference Manager cluster).|
|SIPProxyServerHost||Use the host name of the computer where the WebSphere proxy server is installed for the SIP Proxy and Registrar cluster.|
|SIPProxyServerPort||Use the PROXY_SIPS_ADDRESS port value of the same WebSphere proxy server (used by the SIP Proxy and Registrar cluster).|

- Save and close the file.
- Repeat steps 1 through 3 for each additional Packet Switcher in the deployment.
- (Optional) Synchronize all nodes in the Deployment Manager that manages the Packet Switcher:
This step is not needed if the Packet Switcher was installed using the Network Deployment
-> Primary Node
- In the Deployment Manager's Integrated Solutions Console, click System Administration -> Nodes.
- Click Full Resynchronize.
- Restart the Packet Switchers.
