PG Virtualization - Supported Versions?

Answered Question

The following document exists...


Virtualization Guide for Cisco Unified ICM/Contact Center Enterprise & Hosted, Release 7.5(3), November 2008.


It describes running PGs and Client AWs within a VMware ESX environment. The idea being running a centrally hosted ESX box running PGs connected to remote ACDs (where supported).


My question. Are any other ICM versions officially supported on ESX other than 7.5(x)? The doc doesn't explicitly comment on previous versions.

And the answer is no, no specific Q&A or validation testing was done for it on production requirements.

I haven't had any problems running UCCE 7.x on VM haven't tried 7.5 yet though.

Me neither, running UCCE 7.x(y) on VM is fine, the catch, is it supported in a production environment?

Negative, it's only for lab environments.

Thanks rbua.


So just for clarification VMWare ESX IS supported in a production environment for Client Administrator Workstations (AWs) and certain Peripheral Gateways (PGs) in a ICM 7.5(x) envirnonment as per the doc I talk about above, no other ICM versions are supported?


I appreciate other boxes (e.g. LGR/RTR) are not supported in VMWare for any ICM version.
