Unity Installation Understanding

Hi Pros,

I have a Unity Deployment coming up. Now I have never installed or configured Unity, so I am very clueless & need your advice on how to proceed with the install.

Here's what I have:

---------------------------------

UNITY-4.0 Unity 4.0 1

UNITY-IP Unity for CallManager, IP Only

Integrations

1

UNITY-EXCHANGE Unity for Exchange 1

UNITY-DS-ENG Unity Data Store - in English 1

UNITY-MS-ENG Unity Message Store in English. Not

required for Domino.

1

UNITY40-SVRLIC-32 Unity server license for VM or UM. Incl

32 sessions. No TTS.

1

UNITY-VM-USR One Unity VM User 50

MCS-7815-I1-ECS1 MCS 7815 tower; Unity and Unity

Bridge; 1GB; Win2K

1

---------------------------------

Base Cds of OS & Exchange are not there. Now, according to the license what I come to know is there is no license purchased for Email.

My question is, do I need to purchase separate OS Cd or Can I install CiscoOS.

Second Question is: Is Exchange 2000 required? All the guides I saw on CCO for installing Unity involved Exchange or Domino. What should be the proper guide I should refer to install Unity.

Regards,

Pratik

Re: Unity Installation Understanding

The Cisco OS should be fine.

Unity Message Store is Exchange!!!

Re: Unity Installation Understanding

Your IBM server should have come with a OS disc. (windows 2000). If not you can still use the Cisco OS.Since your licenses are for voicemail only you can either install Exchange on box or off box. To keep it simple, you can install Exchange on the box. You should have got the Message store discs with Unity software disc set.

Hi Sankar,

Thanks again for your reply. So what I presume -

1) I can install Win2k using ServerRaid & Native Windows2000 CD

2) Unity Data Store contains Exchange, so it should get installed when I start the install procedure.

Correct me if I am wrong...

BTW: You are the best ;)

Yes, you can use hardware RAID.

You can find the install instructions here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_installation_guide_book09186a0080118749.html

Re: Unity Installation Understanding

If you can, install 4.2. 4.0 has some bugs that are annoying. 4.2 seems to be pretty stable.

Read the directions all the way through and follow the steps. Don't just assume you can put a disc in and run..

I can install native os, but use the OS cd. Do not use Windows Updates, only use Cisco/Windows certified updates.... same goes for SQL and Exchange.

good luck
