Hi, can anyone tell me if CUCM 7.1.3 runs ok in VMWARE (ESX3.5) I am trying to upgrade but when it re-boots I get error of :
kernel panic- not syncing: attempted to kill init
On CUCM 7.1.2, there's no code to detect VMWare. Thus you may install it on any Vitual Machine. CUCM just thinks it's a physical one.
On CUCM 7.1.3, Cisco added code to detect VM. You'll have to use ESX 4.
I ran into the same issue (vmware ESXi) when upgrading 7.1.2 to an early release of 7.1.3 (sorry, don't
remember exactly which release). I restored 7.1.2 and upgraded to a later version (7.1.3aSU1) and was successful with the upgrade.
