Unity 5.x in a Voice Messaging Configuration with Exchange configuration

We've set up our 2 Unity servers as per - we have 2 servers,UNINTY01 as the primary and UNITY02 as the secondary. UNITY02 is the DC. In the above guide you have to reset the account that SQL Server Services logs on as to a domain account - On both the primary and secondary servers for Cisco Unity failover, you must reset the account that the MSSQLServer and SQLServerAgent services log on as. The account must be a domain account. However when you do this on the

DC then when that server reboots, the services will surely fail on start up as the domain accounts cannot authenticate to the DC - how can the service accounts log in to the domain if the DC hasn't started yet??

Re: Unity 5.x in a Voice Messaging Configuration with Exchange c

Have you tried it to see? What I am getting at is that this has been tested or it wouldn't be recommended or allowed/supported by bu and tac. It used to not be and they tried it out, tested it thoroughly, and decided it was a valid option. We have people who use this scenario for failover all the time and have no issues. We have lab setups like this that also work with no problems.
