Unity upgrade to win 2k3

Unanswered Question
Jun 9th, 2008

I am getting ready to upgrade my Unity to win 2k3. Do you have to have a hardened OS disk from Cisco or can I use a 2003 server enterprise with all the SP installed That I have purchased?

I have this problem too.

Hello Fabian,

Which version of Unity are you currently running? And Exchange?

If you can get it, use the Cisco provided Platform Configuration Disk. One benefit of this is that the PCD includes all the drivers that the server needs.

Customers with UCSS contracts who purchased their MCS servers from Cisco, are entitled to upgrade their operating system from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003 using the product number UNITY-OS-UPG-K9= for at no cost.


The doc also states that "We recommend that you install Windows using the Platform Configuration disc unless your customer requires that other applications installed on the server."

Hope this helps,

I meant to ask if your question regarding which Windows 2003 media to use was answered, or if you needed any further clarification. Sorry I messed it up :-) Come on weekend!
