Customers are NOT happy having to dig up additional HW for the console server. Most have just completed or will be soon, a major server virtualization. With Unity now able to be virtualized and the AC server requirements being fairly basic, this raises some serious questions about the deployment model.


So... I can't find anything specifically stating that one CANNOT run the AC server on a virtual machine but, nothing saying you can either.

Any help out there is appreciated

Thanks

I have this problem too.

No, it's NOT supported

Cisco Unified Business Attendant Console

You can install the server software for the Cisco Unified Business Attendant Console to a dedicated hardware server or load it on a desktop PC running Windows 2003 Server or Windows 2008 Server. For mission-critical installations, a dedicated hardware server is recommended because shutting off the PC server will cause the Cisco Unified Business Attendant Console to lose Cisco Unified Communications Manager connectivity.
