Different MCS Platform in the same UCM cluster?

Answered Question
May 8th, 2008

Hi,

I wanted to understand if I can have a UCM cluster with different MCS platforms.

For example MCS 7845 as a Publisher and MCS 7835 & MCS 7825 as a Subscriber.

I feel that technically this should be possible apart from considering the fallback capacity in case of the MCS failure. However I am interested to know if this is technically a feasible option or not.

Has anyone seen or done any such deployments.

Any inputs would be appreciable.

-> Sushil

I have this problem too.

Hi Sishil,

Hope all is well :) There is no requirement that all MCS Servers in a cluster be the exact same models. So, your example would work just fine as long, as you correctly noted, that "Failover" numbers are considered and factored into the equation.

Our MCS boxes are all the same right now but our past deployment had some differences that never caused any issues.

Hope this helps!

Rob
