Hi Bala,


This is the "master" list for Server support, the CUCM build will not pass the Hardware detection phase on an unsupported server model (and fail);


Supported Cisco Unified Communications Manager Releases by Server

For more information about supported Cisco Unified CM upgrades, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Software Compatibility Matrix at the following URL:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/compat/ccmcompmatr.html




Hope this helps!

Rob

so it is always better to order MCS server & software with Cisco itself or get the software alone with cisco and order HP server separately, which one is better one in terms of cost savings ?


For example if need CUCM to support 1000 user I need to order only alone:

MCS7825H4-K9-CMC2

LIC-CM7.1-7825=


Could you Please light me to ordering info of CUCM 7.1 or any PPT regarding this for this please share with me

Hi Bala,


We prefer to order the Cisco branded MCS servers like the one you listed;



MCS7825H4-K9-CMC2


It is somewhat cheaper to order the Hardware from HP and the Software seperately from Cisco, but we have found that the support from TAC is much easier with the MCS branded boxes. The cost difference up front is mitigated by the superior support down the road.


Cheers!

Rob

Thanks a lot for your reply and explanation.


Again one more question, if I order software alone from Cisco for CUCM 7.1 and order HP server directly with HP, do I need to buy appliance license also "LIC-CM7.1-7825=" or appliance lic is not necessary if I buy software from cisco.


I am bit confused in software alone ordering.
