Re: What Unity Box Content

With the HP or IBM server comes platform configuration discs that will install OS and also setup up your raid controllers, etc. You dont get a h/w detection disk with the Unity discs. You only need the platform config discs to install the OS in Unity server.

Re: What Unity Box Content

When you buy Unity, you get a box with a set of discs. This will contain, Unity software discs, Unity service packs, Data store (SQL) disc, Message store (Exchange) etc. Along with the server (in the box) you will find one or two discs which are the platform configuration discs which setup raid and basic Windows operating system on the server. Once you install the OS, you need to find the mac-address of the server and note the address.

You will also have a sticker on the box (UNITY-4X.CQ...) or something similar. This number is called the Product Authorization key. (PAK number). You will need to email the mac-address you previously noted and this PAk number to licensing@cisco.com.

They will email you a license file in text format. This license is required for installing Unity.

Re: What Unity Box Content

Hi,Sankar. As I understand, I get OS disks with MCS. And If I use HP or IBM server - do I get the OS?

When we talk of callanager - I get OS disks in the package. And here? There must by a way cisco checks my hardware to match one of the supported platforms.
