windows 2003 sp2

Any issue with installing this on my unity 4.2 servers or my exchange 2003 server for that matter?

Thanks

Cory,

Windows Server 2003 SP2 is not yet on the list of recommended updates found here:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/c_unity/cmptblty/msupdate.htm#wp199888

I would recommend waiting until it is approved and supported by Cisco to install.

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

Re: windows 2003 sp2

not to drag this thread out but does anyone know how far behind cisco usually is when it comes to stuff like service packs?

See the Cisco Unity Maintenance Guide

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_maintenance_guide_chapter09186a0080443b78.html

But in a nut shell the answer is:

Within 60 days of an applicable Microsoft service pack release, Cisco will announce whether the service pack can be applied to released Cisco Unity and Bridge versions. If so, the new service pack becomes the recommended service pack for Cisco Unity and the Bridge.

Re: windows 2003 sp2

Oh yeah... you should be ok to apply SP2 to your Exchange server now....

Again see the Cisco Unity Maintenance Guide to get the full scoop.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps2237/products_maintenance_guide_chapter09186a0080443b78.html

Updates and service packs can be applied to other non-Cisco Unity servers such as Exchange 2000 or Exchange 5.5 mail servers. Cisco does not require such updates and service packs to be applied to infrastructure servers and clients unless they are to resolve specifically identified problems that relate to the interactions between Cisco products and a customer infrastructure. When applying a mail server service pack, we recommend following Microsoft best practices of applying the service pack level to all mail servers within the organization. Client PCs and voice mail access devices (for example, PDAs), as well as mail servers, domain controllers, and global catalog servers, may all be considered part of the customer infrastructure.

Re: windows 2003 sp2

by the way .. was any one brave enough to put servicepack 2 on there unity server for win3k?

Re: windows 2003 sp2

I installed SP2 on my 4.2 Unity servers completely by accident. Well I wouldn't say I did it. Someone applied a group policy to a number of machines that included a Windows Update settings and pointed all the machines to an internal WSUS server. Well, they included the Unity servers and they all installed SP2 last night. So far, I haven't found anything not working. We'll see.

Has anyone else installed SP2 yet?

Re: windows 2003 sp2

Hi -

The caveat is you should have a Unity and Exchange server in a test lab environment to test functionality and compatibility before applying any Microsoft service pack in production where a Unity server is integrated. Here is an example Cisco reference - http://www.ciscotaccc.com/kaidara-advisor/voice/showcase?case=K24602647

Just a bit of caution. Ginger

I agree. I had not intended to install SP2. Someone else had their fingers in group policies and applied them to the wrong group. I was a accidental guinea pig.

Thanks Tod

are you on unity 4.2?

my two unity servers are the only ones left that do not have sp2 for win3k ..

New Member

Re: windows 2003 sp2

Yes, I am running Unity 4.2, but I only have sp2 on one of them. I have not installed it on the others even though I haven't had any problems with the one that did have it installed.

Re: windows 2003 sp2

I have tried to upgrade my server OS to Win2k3 SP2 before installing Unity and the installation couldNOT completed (failed at the 1st step). So after installing Unity, I darenot upgrade the OS to SP2, but I think I will try this tomorrow!

New Member

Re: windows 2003 sp2

Hmmm..

so that just sounds like an os version check that the install performs ... you could by pass that with a registry modification.

So maybe unity performs well with SP2... i think it should .. sp2 does not change the kernel...

still waiting tho!!!
