Want to understand the difference b/w to GPL SKUs:
Part Number: MCS-7816-I3-IPC1
Description: HW Only MCS-7816-I3 with 2GB RAM and One 160GB SATA HD
Part Number: MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2
Description: Unified CM 6.1 7816-I3 Appliance, 0 Seats
The price is the same for both entries. The hardware, I think, is also
similar. I suppose the first one (MCS-7816-I3-IPC1) does not contain any
CD/DVD software package. Whereas the second one (MCS7816I3-K9-CMB2) does.
Am I right ?
Are there any other differences ?
Life is great here! Hopefully for you as well :)
The "CMA/CMB" designation on the Part# does indicate a "pre-loaded" appliance. So yes, this server would be shipped with the Linux OS and Communications Manager 6.1 pre-loaded. The "IPC1" Version will not ship with any CCM discs and they will need to be ordered seperately :)
Here are some examples;
The server appliance is preinstalled with an operating system and the Cisco Unified Communications Manager application. Cisco Unified Communications Manager is fully operational upon startup, requiring entry of just a few configuration variables such as IP address and domain.
Product part number
Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.1
CMB1 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.0
CMB2 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.1
CMA2 = Cisco Unified Communications Manager 5.1
Hope this helps!
