Unity Server

Unanswered Question

Do the new Unity Servers from Cisco - in particular the MCS-7825-I2 - come preloaded with the Unity O/S already installed. The Documentation has been terrible - Do I start with the Cisco Unity Platform (and RAID) Configuration DVD? I also have CISCO UNITY DVD (3 DVDs). The Server will not boot up - I can see the RAID array but it doesn't boot up to it.

They do not come pre-installed for unity. You will need to start with booting up on the dvd platform to load the RAID and OS. Once the OS is loaded, just load the Unity application.

You can actually load any OS CD. The Cisco cd's have all the drivers for RAID, etc. It does a nice jump, but in a pinch, you can load MS windows server from any CD.

Hi -

Just an FYI - you cannot load the CallManager Cisco OS version of Windows on Unity. As Tommer already mentioned, any Microsoft Server OS CD will work for Unity.

yeah, just to clarify, I mean any OS of Windows 2000, 2003, etc. Not Cisco OS. (which is 2k)
