I believe we are suppose to buy a CM server based on points for end points, but I can't find that anywhere.

Is this the correct way in determining the right servers to but and where do I find this info?

Hi Randall,

Here are two good reference docs for this type of planning. It's always a good idea to engage your Cisco SE in this process as they have access to this good tool (you may be able to get it from TAC as well);

The Cisco Unified CM Capacity Tool

Unified CM Platform Capacity Planning


Cisco Unified Communications Manager Server Support Matrix


Hope this helps!
