Exchange Clstr with 5500 users(UM&VMO)

Looking to get some clarity on a statement in the design guide.

Environment is 5500 subscribers in VMO&UM configurations, an off-box message store(exchange 2003 cluster).

Given what the design guide says can the off-box store be one exchange server with two different stores, or is the requirement that off-box store be two distinctly different exchange server with their own stores?

"For example, given the maximum Voice Messaging limitation of 7,500 subscribers for a single Cisco Unity server, at least two off-box message stores are required. This means that at a minimum, three servers are necessary to support this number of subscribers. If it is necessary to support more than 7,500 subscribers, a dedicated domain controller is required."

When it speaks of a message store, it is speaking of a server, not an Exchange message store. Please take a look at the following link for further clarification. It gives examples of message store server specifications and the number of users they can support.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

Thanks for the reply. I get that part of it, but since Cisco won't describe mailstore scaling limitations, and Microsoft does comes out and say how many boxes can be mapped to a store, only concurrent connections. Is there a ratio of how many subscriber can reside on a server/mailstore, or that just an exercise in Exchange site planning?

Re: Exchange Clstr with 5500 users(UM&VMO)

Table 1 in the link in my previous post gives user limitations for an off box message store based on a given server configuration and whether or not you will use IMAP clients.
