Upgrading Exchange on Unity

Answered Question
Feb 27th, 2008

We are running Exchange 5.5 on Unity 4.0(3). Is it possible to upgrade to Exchange 2000 / Exchange 2003 without affecting anything on Unity?

Note - Exchange 5.5 is on the same box as Unity 4.0(30, but the Unity server is a member of our company domain. i.e. AD is integrated.

I have this problem too.

Take a look at the following link.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity/white/paper/mig/MigVM_UM.html

It referecnces Unity 3.1, but the concepts apply to later versions as well.

Hope this helps.

Are you running unified messaging or voicemail only? If unified messaging, Exchange must be on a seperate server. If voicemail only, you can upgrade to Exchange 2000/2003. However, Exchange 2003 requires Unity 4.0(5). It might be a good time to think about upgrading Unity as well. See the Reconfiguration and Upgrade guide below for Exchange upgrade steps.

Hi Brandon,

Thanks a ton for this excellent doc. Really helps a lot!

We are running Unity only, but have plans to upgrade to Unified Messaging in the near future. Is there any doc that lists all the steps necessary to move from a "Voice Mail only" configuration to Unified Messaging"? Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Abhijit Das.
