Unity 7 - Platform Configuration

Answered Question

Hi,


I am using an MCS-7845-ESC4 purchased as a Unity bundle from Cisco. According to the install documentation this is a platform overlay 3 server.


Following the install document and booting with the platform configuration disk for the 7845-ECS4 the system was auto installed with the following partitions and volume labels:


VOLUME_1 C: 24GB

VOLUME_2 D: 112GB

VOLUME_3 E: 136GB

VOLUME_4 F: 273GB


The install document does not show the partitioning above and talks about C:, D: and E: drives only.


I want to install this server in the correct manner so that it is TAC supported and performs well however, either the documentation is wrong or the platform configuration disk is doing something incorrect.


Can anyone advise?


Thanks

Hi Rob,


Can you give me an example of Folders to be made. In my case we don't have Exchange Server.


We have MCS7845-I3-ECS1 server i.e. platform overlay 3. I am installing Miscrosoft SQL Server 2000. At the time of installation it is giving me 2 options for Destination Folders.


Program Files and Data Files. If I go according to the installation guide I have to select following folders, correct me if I'm wrong.


For Program Files: D:/Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server

For Data Files: E:/Program Files/Microsoft SQL Server


Thanking you in anticipation of your quick reply.


Regards,

Amit.
