Mediasite Administrator Update, June 2015

As part of an ongoing effort to keep Mediasite administrators on campus informed, we created this DELTAwire article specifically for you! For help with any Mediasite questions, please contact us at mediasite-help@ncsu.edu.

This article includes information on the following topics:

Mediasite Monthly Server Maintenance

The monthly Windows Updates for the Mediasite servers will be installed between 5-8 a.m., on June 13, 2015. During this time we will also be pointing the mediasite.online.ncsu.edu instance at a new drive share to manage publish to go files. The servers will be rebooted one at a time. There will be a brief outage when the database and file servers are rebooted, but no other interruptions are expected.

We plan to install the Mediasite 7.0.24 server update to the servers during the maintenance on June 13, however, at this point, we have not received the build nor tested the update. If we are unable to install the update on June 13, we will install the update on June 24, 2015 between 9 a.m.—12 p.m. The servers will be offline and users will not be able to login to the management portal for a short period while the work is being performed. While we don’t anticipate using the entire window, the longer period is reserved for unforeseen circumstances.

For further information and updates regarding this maintenance, please see Updates & Maintenance schedule.

Mediasite Recorder/SSL Update

While we initially thought the following recorder issues were related to configuration changes from the recent upgrade/SSL change, Sonic Foundry has filed the following as known issues and expects these to be resolved in the 7.0.24 upgrade.

1) recorders are unreachable on the recorders page of the management portal

2) the version of some recorders are not being updated in the management portal

3) the “Monitor Recorder” button either fails to display any recorders or returns an error

Carolina Chapter Mediasite/NC State MUG Meetings

Please mark your calendars for our second Mediasite Community Carolinas Chapter meeting on Monday, August 3, hosted at North Carolina State University from 10 a.m. — 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Detailed information will be distributed via the many Mediasite channels later this month including our online community Mediasite User Group Community website. Join Mediasite users from North and South Carolina to share ideas and collaborate!

In combination with the Carolinas Chapter meeting, please plan to attend our NC State Mediasite User Group meeting from 8:45-9:45 am also on July 24, 2015.
