We’re running 5.13f in production and have an upgrade to 7.13b got through the PUT. When I try to run the upgrade in vmware it fails, I have plenty of resource 2gb for ram and 72gb drive. I get the following upgrade errors at the end of the install but the upgrade is unhappy about vmware through the whole process Manager||Method: getValidateErrorFile args: |- current mode=UNKNOWN completed with code | 03/04/2010 17:26:26 upgrade_os.sh|This hardware is no longer supported. Validation error on HSSI mode: VMware Virtual Machine Validation Failure: Unable to validate VMware based server disk settings.

I’ve tried it with an 80gb drive. I want to test out cucimoc. Any ideas would be welcomed.
I see. ESX version might be your problem.
The reason is:
In CUCM 5.1.3, there's no code to detect VMWare. i.e. If you install 5.1.3 on VMWare, it'll just treat it like a regular (physical) PC. It'll succeed as long as the VM has enough memory and hard drive space.
On CUCM 7.1.3, things changed. Cisco put in the code to detect VMWare. If the VMWare version/edition does not meet Cisco's requirement, the installation will fail.
