I think this is fixed in the latest Media Manager Fix pack. HotFix1.
Today I discovered that there might be a specific startup order for the Media Manager servers for the Sametime 9 environment.
I had no Video conferencing option after a reboot, and the SP+CF servers SystemOut.log told me that a connection to the VMGR server was "denied".
So, I then shut down the SP+CF server, shut down the VMGR and of course the SolidDB as well. Started the SolidDB and then the VMGR.
Waited for the VMGR to finish starting, then I fired up the SP+CF server.
Bingo, Video Conferencing option was back!
I mentioned this to an IBM L2 support guy, and he will verify if this is actually so. He has a ST9 environment himself where he can test this.
Can anyone else verify?
There should be a "if no connection to vmgr, wait and retry" function on the SP+CF server. If there was, this would no be an issue.
