Skype for Business SDN API 2.4.1 installation and configuration Part 3

Skype for Business SDN API 2.4.1 installation and configuration Part 3

You can refer below article for SDN general information and installation, this article specifically target the SDN and LDL configuration.

Configure Skype for Business SDN manager:
SDN API 2.2 onwards you cannot modify the configuration for adding subscriber or changing any other configuration. You have to use command prompt or windows PowerShell to add / remove / modify any configuration.
Disable complication of Personal Identifiable Information (PII): Disable this in order to allow SIP address and LineURI etc. It is disabled by default after a new installation.

SDNManager.exe /p m hidepii=False
Add a subscriber to the Skype for Business SDN Manager
In the following steps, has to be used consistently. They are not interchangeable.
SDNManager.exe /p s submituri=http://:

e.g. sdnmanager.exe p s ArubaHQ1 submituri=http://10.XX.XX.XX:15790

sdnmanager.exe p s PrognosisHQ1 submituri=http://10.XX.XX.XX:3000/SdnApiReceiver/HQ1

Enable sending , and packets
SDNManager.exe /p s signaling=True
e.g SDNManager.exe /p s PrognosisHQ1 signaling=True

Enable Raw SDP. This is required by subscriber to filter out non-audio packets.
SDNManager.exe /p s sendrawsdp=True
e.g SDNManager.exe /p s PrognosisHQ1 sendrawsdp=True

Configure the output schema to be indistinguishable from SDN Manager 2.1, 2.1.1 and 2.2. Keeping schema as C as supported by Subscriber.
SDNManager.exe /p s outputschema=C
e.g SDNManager.exe /p s PrognosisHQ1 outputschema=C

Add a Dialog Listener (on Front-End server) to the SDN Manager:
This needs to be done for every single Skype for Business 2015 / Lync Server 2013 Pool. In case all Skype for Business Dialog Listeners belong to the same pool, it is only necessary to do this once.
SDNManager.exe /p l submituri="http://< SDN Manager IP>:9333/LDL;http://< SDN Manager IP>:9333/Log"

e.g. SDNManager.exe /p l submituri="http:// 172.XX.XX.XX:9333/LDL;http:// 172.XX.XX.XX:9333/Log" sdn_conf10

Now restart SDN and LDL service and wait for 30 min to see real time call quality data on network management system or controller. In my setup I have configured two subscriber one is Aruba controller and another is Prognosis.

Thank you.
