I have a client that does not want to buy a Exchange Cal license for there VM users.
Currently they have about 500 users installed on a Unified Exchange 2003 Server. They want to move 370 users to a VM runtime Exchange server.
I have seen the white paper for Mixed license and it states:
How to Set Up a Cisco Unity Configuration to Support a Mixed VM/UM License:
Segmenting Voice Messaging Subscribers
To allow for careful management of Voice Messaging subscribers, we recommend doing one of the
â¢ Exchange only-Dedicate a storage group on one or more Exchange servers that houses all Voice Messaging subscribers.
My question is can I just create a storage group on the UM exchange server for the VM users?
What are the steps for doing this?
You cannot, you need to create new accounts, as the old ones are unified and are referenced by the email as well. To seperate UM from VM doing the COS change is not enough, you still need to seperate email mailbox from VM mailbox, hence creating new AD user with new Exchange mailbox. Typically the VM accounts are called somthing like vm-alias.
