Can I install off-the-shelf W2k server and SQL server for a new Unity 3.0.2 VM only installation?<br><br>We didn't receive the 2000 OS software when we got the Unity software, and we a have presentation of the system SOON!<br><br>
Here is the whole story behind licensing for Unity 3.0:
Windows 2000 If a customer purchases the server from Cisco, it comes with the Operating System, Windows 2000. This includes the licenses needed to operate Windows 2000. If the customer sources their own server, they must source the operating system and license.
SQL/MSDE The licensing for SQL/MDSE is included in the cost of Unity. If the system is 16 ports or less, the customer is instructed to install MSDE 2000, as that is all they are licensed for. If the system is greater that 16 ports, the customer is instructed to install SQL Server 2000, as that is what they are licensed for.
Exchange 5.5 and 2000 Unity ships with a Runtime version of Exchange. This includes any Exchange licenses needed to check voice messages over the phone (which is all that is needed for a Voice Mail system). If a customer is using Unified Messaging, there is an assumption that they have already purchased CALs for their Exchange email system. If they have not, or if they are using Unity for their email server too, they have to purchase CALs for each subscriber that will be accessing messages via Outlook.
I have a similar situation where 2.4.6 was purchased and then a design change forced us to go with 3.0.2 at the last minute. I think I have or will have everything I need with the exception of the MSDE 2000. Currently I'm trying to get 3.0.2 downloaded off the web and am wondering if MSDE 2000 is included in the download or do I have to rummage up a copy of it too? If it's not included is it downloadable from MS? I was unable to find it if it's there.
The copy of Unity 3.0(2) on CCO does not include SQL. It is NOT possible to successfully migrate from Cisco Unity 2.4.6 to Cisco Unity 3.0 without ordering an Upgrade Kit. In addition Cisco Unity REQUIRES an upgrade to the hardware key.
Customers without a valid contact can order the Cisco Unity Upgrade Kit through their normal sales channels.
Posting 3.0(2) on CCO has caused some confusion because people think it's a free upgrade, but it is not. The Unity software is only part of the solution. We are keeping it on CCO so that a customer has it available of their media is damaged or if they lose their software and need to run a patch later on.
