I purchased 3 HP DL320 G5 servers to install CCM, CUPS and CMPX. The HPs are identical in hardware specs to the MCS 7825-H3
â¢ Intel Dual-Core Xeon 3050 2.13-GHz processor with an 1066-MHz front side bus (FSB) and 2 MB of Layer 2 cache
â¢ 2-GB PC2-5300 double-data-rate 2 (DDR2) Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) memory
â¢ Two 160-GB cold-swap serial advanced technology attachment (SATA) hard disk drives configured with Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) 1
â¢ Dual-port Gigabit Ethernet controller (embedded)
â¢ Quick-deployment third-party rail kit
with the exception of the CPU which is the same speed, just a quad-core instead of dual-core. Well CCM and CUPS won't install as they say the hardware is not supported! So we decided to virtualize those two in VMWare ESX and our problem is circumvented for now. Meetingplace Express, however, will not install on either our new HPs or on VMware as either way we go we are met with a message that says "This is an INVALID platform for Cisco Unified Communications!" So am I stuck needing to buy a MCS 7825 or is there a way to use the hardware I purchased (which I can't return at this point). What a pain!
