We are currently running unity 5 with an exchange 2007 environment off box. My unity licenses are all for voice messaging only. Each subscriber mailbox is connected to a seperate exchange account from the users email account. For any given user, tsmith, there is an exchange user tsmith for email and a seperate exchange user vmbx_tsmith for voice mail.
Recently, I began hearing that there was no longer a distinction between the licensing for voice mail only and unified messaging. After recently registering some new mailboxes that I purchased, I noticed that they added count to my licensed users for unified messaging which had never occurred before. Can someone confirm or deny that there is no distinction between licensing in unity for unified messaging and voice mail only? Also, if that is the case, is there a path to have existing licensing that I have purchased as voice mail only reflect as unified messaging in my licensing report? Thanks.
I've had TAC tell me this as well when trying to go from 4x to 5x for upgrade. It's going to be hard for you to accomplish this without ordering an upgrade to 7x or without getting your Account Manager involved. When you do that, you'll end up talking to Licensing again.
