I have a customer with requirements for both voicemail only and unified messaging servers. Since it appears that there is no easy way to use Unity digital networking in their environment, the solution of forwarding messages between systems seems to be to build the UM server's users as Internet subscribers on the VM server and vice versa. This involves several hundred users being built as Internet subscribers. Is there any bulk import utility for Internet subscribers on the horizon?
Actually... I have a beta of a tool that's been kicking around for a while that is designed to do just this... run the Subscriber Information Dump (including voice names) and using the output you can use this special import tool to slurp them in as internet subscribers on the target Unity server.
It's a little complex to use (multiple steps involved which always makes me nervous) but it has been QA tested along the way - I haven't posted it for general consumption since it's not as easy as falling off a chair to use - however if you're interested in giving it a roll, ping me at email@example.com and I can send it your way to have a look. If enough folks have a demand for this maybe I can spend some cycles putting some safety railing on it and post it on CiscoUnityTools.com...
Customer currently has NT4 w/Ex5.5. My original proposal was to be using the same Exchange 5.5 Org but different sites. I was concerned about the implications down the road if/when the customer wants to go AD/Ex2K and I did not realize that a VM Unity could coexist with a UM Unity in the same AD forest. I would have thought that there would be licensing issues with Exchange. If there are no insurmountable issues with future AD/Ex2K migrations then I will recommend that the Unity servers are built in the same 5.5 organization now. That will make life much simpler.
No licensing issues with VM and UM both in the same Exchange org so long as the VM only users are only accessing voice mail and fax messages over the phone interface or the seperately licensed VMI web interface - no desktop access to messages or emails over the phone and the like... that's what the long, tortured license agreement for the VM only stuff with Microsoft is about (Lawyers gone wild).
