Hi Palanivel,

The requirements are listed in the doc below;


Revised April 2, 2009

With the requirements listed below, Cisco supports virtualizing the following servers running the Cisco-provided software: Cisco Unity application servers, Cisco Unity voice-recognition servers, and Voice Mail Run-Time Edition of Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 servers (with or without Active Directory installed).


Note This guide collectively refers to the three types of virtualized servers mentioned above as "Cisco Unity virtual machines."


•Cisco Unity version 7.0(2) or later.

•VMware ESX 3.5 or later, or VMware ESXi 3.5 or later.


Note This guide refers to both VMware ESX and VMware ESXi as VMware ESX.


•VMware ESX must be deployed in a configuration supported by VMware.
