I have two Unity Connection Servers (MCS7825I4-k9-UCC2) preloaded with Unity Connection 8.5. I was doing an installation in one of the servers that I planned to use as a publisher and when I realised that the network connection back to the CUCM Cluster over the WAN was not working I stopped the installation. When I booted up the server for the second time after I had already configured basic parameters such as the hostname, IP Address, DNS, Gateway, etc. from the initial installation attempt; the installation asked if the mouse should be installed, Ignored, Do Nothing and I chose the install option which I didn't choose the first time.
The problem now is that when I boot up the server in order to continue with the installation I encounter an error "Hardware Configuration Error: The hardware you are using does not support the product suite. Modify the hardware and try again". I then went to the BIOS to see where I can undo the PS2 mouse installation that I performed, because I think that's where the problem is, I cannot find any place where I can change this setting. In the I/O ports configuration in BIOS there is only "USB enable/disable" option.
I then decided to use the server the other server that was going to be a subscriber and the installation was successful with no issues. Both servers are exactly the same and are both preloaded with the same Unity Connection 8.5 software.
I have read the IBM System X documentation but I have not found anything that I can use to resolve this issue.
Is there anyone who has got an Idea of how I can overcome this issue?
The very fact the same overlay of the server model that you are planning to deploy got installed successfully points there isnt a possible hardware compatibility issue, as mentioned above its always a good practice to install the server from scratch .
Starting from scratch is really not so much time consuming, not like in the old "windows" days.
