It seems that Unity is usually installed one of two ways: 1. integrated with AD and Exchange (UM) or 2. not integrated with AD or Exchange (VM only).
If you only had licenses for VM-only why not integrate with the corporate AD but leave exchange on-box? This would allow you to easily add users to Unity by importing them from AD and it would also be better for the end users because their login to PCA would be coming from AD.
I understand that Unity is always integrated with AD, but my question is, can a voicemail-only Unity box be integrated with any AD domain or does a voicemail-only Unity system need to be a domain controller?
It seems that voicemail-only configerations are always setup so that AD runs on Unity...I don't understand why you wouldn't just use your existing corparate AD (if one exists alreay).
Because technically, if you were to integrate with your existing domain and Exchange, this would not VM only then. It would be UM. Which then you would need to have UM licenses, instead of VMonly license.
I think I understand...but just to clearify, if I integrate with an existing AD but leave Exchange on-box since its VM only, basiclly having two Exchnage servers in AD (one for email and one for Unity, this would be considered UM and would not work. Is that correct?
Thanks for the link and all your replies. I do not have any plans to migrate to UM, integrate with an existing Exchange server and I am not concerned about my licenses.
I simply need to know if the following configuration is supported by Cisco:
Unity 4.2.3, voicemail only, exchange on box, added as a member server to an existing AD domain. The purpose of this is NOT to try to create a UM environment but to make adding unity users easier by importing them from AD. The install guides say to setup AD unity but it shouldn?t matter where AD is running.
If anyone else has set this up please let me know. Thanks.
