VCS expressway mobile or jabber guest mode or both ?


I've installed in my Lab VCS expressway C and E for mobile remote access . Now i would like to test also Jabber Guest , according to Cisco Doc it's NOT possible to use the same VCS for the both features. As i don't want to re-configure a new VCS , is it possible to use the same VCS either for Mobile access OR for Jabber Guest access JUST by changing parameters "unified communication mode" on VCS from mobile access to jabber guest ? ( and for sure configure jabber guest server and all required parameters )

Hi - I'm not familiar with

Hi - I'm not familiar with the configuration required for MRA, however you should be able to reconfigure the same VCS pair for Jabber Guest, instead of MRA.  Just not sure if what you list above is all that needs to be changed.  Try it out though, and report back with your results!

Hello,According to this:You


According to this:

You cannot use the same Cisco Expressway-C and Cisco Expressway-E pair or cluster for both Cisco Jabber Guest and Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access.


So knowing that there is a promo on until the end of the year for 2 free sessions does that mean we have to order another set of VCS servers from your partner?

Hello, The promotion provides



The promotion provides 2 concurrent sessions of Guest and 4 Rich Media Sessions.  It does not include any hardware or VCS servers, so you would need to either use existing Expressway E & C, or Purchase if you don't already have them.
