Hi All,

I want to install Cups 6.0 on a Vmware machine, but it keeps failing.

Is this possible?

What are the system requirements (I have a p3 with 1 gig ram)

Are there any "special" settings for the vmware machine?

Thanks in advance,

Installation of CUPS requires a specific mcs server requirement. It supports only on 7835 H2 and 7845 H2.

I thought that you are allowed to install for lab and proof of concepts.

To build on the great info from Josh. CUP602 will install in VMWare natively and will also give you 2 Node Licenses and 2 SIP Proxy licenses. You have to install from bootable 6.02 media to gain this functionality. This is only supported in a non-production environment. Refer to the CUP602 release notes for further information.

Thank you,
