Thanx, but what i want to know is the suitable version windows for CRS 4.5 , i know that win server 2000 is suitable but what about 2003 here is no mention on crs documents about that issues.

CRS 4.5 runs only on Windows 2000, it is not compatible with 2003. CRS 5.0 runs on 2003, but obviuosly it requires different version of CM.

i installed win 2k advanced and sp4 but i faced a problem at the beggining of the installation saying : " computer hardware provided by cisco is required to install cisco CRS.installation will now reboot."

You need to install it on Cisco supported MCS type server as well as Cisco version of Windows 2000 such as 2000.4.5a. The server will require at least 2 Gb or RAM and 72 GB drives.

same issue here

we do not have the Cisco version of Windows 2000 because we have a CCM version 5 with Cisco Appliance (MCS 7825) but now we call for swap CCM5 with IPCCX . therefore IPCCX will be installed on the same platform.

The problem here that we have no Windows OS with Cisco Delivered package , so could you please help in such issue ????

note that we have IPCCX license file.

Thanks in advance

I think for IPPX in CCM5.x need a seperate server. You cannot install on CCM5.x since its linux box. But in CCM4.x & before version IPCCX is co resident with CCM.

What you can do, is modify your basic windows 2000 with the reg-keys from a cisco-os. This is working even in a VM. But never do this in a production deployment. Only for lab stuff.

You have to use a cisco-compatible hw with CiscoOS!

we have the cisco-compatible hw, but without the OS.

should we contact cisco for this ???

simonandorfi Tue, 07/08/2008 - 05:16

usually ciscoOs is included in IP-IVR (or CRS) or CCM Bundles. I'm not sure how to buy that seperatly; but open a case is a good way to make sure :)
