MeetingPlace Express/VMWare

I've been trying to build a test system on VMWare for MPX 2.0.3 and just get a message stating INVALID platform. Has anyone managed to build a lab/test MPX on VMWare?

I understand that Cisco provides a VMware image of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express for certified partners for demo purpose, if you are a Cisco certified partners, you may approach your Cisco representative for the image.

I've used those images. They seem to work well with VMWare Workstation, but under ESX, MPE gets a GRUB error when starting.


Re: MeetingPlace Express/VMWare

That was because those images were built over IDE vDisk.

All you need to do is to convert them into SCSI vDisk. Then it'll work fine on ESX.

I have MPE 2.1 running on my ESX now.

Re: MeetingPlace Express/VMWare

Hi Michael,

Currently I'm trying to convert the MeetingPlace Express Vmware version (which came with our Cisco NFR kit) to a ESXi version. But I can't find the step where to convert the type of disk. I'm using the VMware Converter app.

Thanks in advance.
