Yes, CUCM will install on these servers using VMware for use in a lab environment. Neither server will be supported by Cisco for use in a production environment. Virtualization support for a production environment will begin with CUCM 8 and will initially be supported only on UCS.

Hope this helps.

Hi Brandon,

I now have the new HP Proliant AMD opteron Quad Core server with 1TB HD and 8Gig RAM.

I am trying to install CUCM 6.0.1 on a Virtual machine and get this error "Could not find kernal image:linux" Does this mean my image is corrupted? Where can i source an image for CUCM7.0 or CUCM7.1. Could you please help. I have this server since a week and unable to progress further.

Thanks

Mohammed

Yes, this could be caused by a corrupt image. I have seen this problem mentioned with other CUCM versions. Would recommend obtaining another DVD.

No, you will not be able to download the full install DVD image. You'll need to obtain another disk.
