I'm trying to install Unity in my lab. I found out we purchased wrong server hardware for Unity. We bought three MCS-7825-H1-IPC1 without knowing they are for Call Managers. Does anyone know see if I can use this server for Unity?
CISCO UNITY VOICE MESSAGING AND UNIFIED MESSAGING CONFIGURATIONS
Some models of Cisco media convergence server (MCS) platforms are now offered in two enterprise communications variants for Cisco Unity, labeled ECS1 and ECS2 configurations. In these cases, the ECS1 configurations are optimized for voice mail only deployments, with extra hard drive capacity and redundant array of independent disks (RAID) configuration to support storage of messages on the same server. ECS2 configurations are optimized for unified messaging deployments or voice mail deployments where messages will be stored on a separate server. ECS2 configurations generally have fewer RAID-configured hard drives to provide a more cost-effective server platform when the additional on-box message store capacity is not needed.

* Assumes 12 GB for system partition, half of addressable drive space reserved for recovery, Exchange (Voicemail Runtime) Standard Edition. This is for Voice Messaging deployments with local message store only. In Unified Messaging deployments the amount of storage time available for messages depends upon the Exchange or Lotus Domino network storage capacity.
Well in case of production server make sure its a supported hardware, however if it is just for testing Unity does not care about any specific hardware you can install it on any Windows 2000 Server i mean it can be a normal windows server.
