UM in a mixed environment


site a - has a unity thats only used for vmail at this time. [win2k/exch2k] The network is a NT environment. The Unity and NT network have there own domains and no trusts are set up. Unity only serves this site.

site b - another NT environment with exchange 5.5. Users connect to this exchange server from both sites via Citrix. A t1 connects the two sites and is used for data and voice.


have a few users from site A to have unified messaging.


how can we accomplish this? The users must still use there exch 55 mailbox, and replication accross the t1 is an issue.


Re: UM in a mixed environment

Unless you added the Exchange 2000 Server that Unity is using to the Exchange 5.5 Org, you will need a second server or to reinstall.

Cisco also doesn't sell systems that are half unified message / half voicemail only. If you want to do unified messaging for some subscriber you would need to buy a unified messaging upgrade for the whole system or add a second system that is licensed for unified messaging.

Re: UM in a mixed environment

We figured we had to go this route, so a reload isn't a problem. If we do join the existing 55 Org, should we use exchange 55 on the 2k/Unity server to make it easier? [is unity 3.13 really supported with55?] Or is using exch 2k recommended? Also, do we have to join the same site as the existing 55 server?

As far as the license issue, they were purchased for the vmo clients. Thanks Keith....
