Cisco Unity 5.1 Failover

I want to install the Cisco Unity 5.1 with exchange 2003 on MCS 7835. I will install Unity and exchange on the same MCS Server. I want to configure cisco unity in failover mode. Please let me know how to configure it. What are the software limitations. Is it require the same Hardware component because I will use MCS 7845 for failover. What are the license limitations.

Re: Cisco Unity 5.1 Failover

look at the failover requirements and exchange requirements, if you want UM you cannot have Exchange onbox.

Re: Cisco Unity 5.1 Failover

Im pretty sure in 5.x you can have Exchange loaded on the Failover server now, just not on the Primary Unity server. There is a document somewhere that states this.

halfway down you can install it on the Failover server

Re: Cisco Unity 5.1 Failover

indeed, but as i mentioned. not with UM.

this from the same doc i already posted:

Failover Requirements When the Message Store Is Installed on the Secondary Cisco Unity Server

•Cisco Unity must be configured as Voice Messaging. For information on the maximum number of subscribers supported in this configuration, refer to the Cisco Unity Supported Platforms List at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_data_sheets_list.html.

Re: Cisco Unity 5.1 Failover

Waseem,

Are you trying to install Unity as unified message communication or just voice mail only? There are different sets to follow.

Cheers
