We have 6 Unity servers spread out in a hub-n-spoke WAN under a single OU for the customer. AD is live, and each Unity server is a DC/GC combo for their site. The plan is to put each DC/GC in their own site, but since Unity is already up and running, we wanted to know if moving the server into a new Site would break any AD or Unity communications.
Unity is version 4.0.1 at 5 remotes, 3.1.4 at the hub, WIndows2K is patched to Cisco standards as of a montha ago.
Any ramifications, gotchas, or pointers on this thought? TIA
There wont be any issues with this as far as Unity is concerned. You might want to double check each Unity server to make sure it is pointing at its local DC/GC. This doc has the details on where to check that and how to change it if not:
There's two different uses of the GC in two different portions of the registry. One GC setting is used for the AvDsGlobalCatalog service for the configuration of the directory server Unity will use to sync SQL with the GC. That "rediscovery" is under the control of Cisco and was slated for 4.0.3. The second is in the MAPI profile, and this is not under the control of Cisco. This is the one where Microsoft needs to do the work. We do not have a time frame for that.
