installation guide for a 7835 with Unity ??

I just got a new 7835 that I had planned to install Unity on,

and it came with a couple Unity OS disks (Windows) and

no real instructions. The server boots up and the SCSI RAID

drives have not even been set up.

Is there a set up disk like CallMgr to configure the basic system?

If not, is there a guide suggesting what should be done, what

dirvers to load, what partitions should be created etc?

Hey Paul.

Here is what I normally due for a blank 7835 Unity install.

1) Boot from Compaq SmartStart CD and configure the system partition, Drive setup (RAID 1).

2) I create a 8Gb partition for system, 4 Gb partition for log files and a 4Gb partition for data (mailstore, only if mailboxes are stored somewhere else. If they are going to be stored locally, like a POV system, I'll increase the data partition.)

If you need more info on going through the Compaq Smartstart, send me an email directly.

separating your store and log files in exchange 2000 is a great idea for hard disk input output perfromance and for fault tolerance however putting them on different partitions does nothing unless on they are on seperate physical disks.
