Deploying the legacy API Connector in High Availability

Last Updated:

When deploying a Zoom API Connector for SIP/H.323 devices, multiple Connectors can be deployed not just for zone management, but also in High Availability setups. Once deployed in High Availability mode, the secondary Zoom API Connector will run in standby mode in tandem with the primary Zoom Room API Connector. If the primary Zoom API Connector becomes unavailable, the standby will switch to Active mode.

Prerequisites for deploying the legacy API Connector in High Availability

  • A Pro, Business, Enterprise, or Education account
  • Owner, Admin, or “H.323/SIP room connector” Role-based privileges
  • A Zoom account with a Cloud Room Connector license
  • A supported SIP or H.323 device
  • A deployed API Connector
  • See the following links for more information about Zoom API Connector requirements

VM requirements

  • A Windows PC, Server, or Virtual Machine (for installing and running the Zoom API Connector software locally)
  • 2 core processor
  • 20 GB of storage

Note: The above device requirements, support up to 200 endpoints
