This is possible, but certainly not recommended for a production environment. Take a look at the following link.
Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
The link doesn't seem to show much. We are strictly trying to do this in a test lab. We are consolidating, upgrading, and migrating our AD infastructure. Finding someone at support who knows how Call Manager and Unity will behave in this mix has been a bit of a challenge, so we are running some tests ourselves.
It took me 3 time to install untill start running strait. i have Call Manager in my test lab and is running great for testing. I do not have unity install but I heard that many people have it on VM and is running fine. What are you trying to test?
I can only re-iterate what Brandon has said and in no way use non-Cisco approved hardware for any live system. You will not get support and you are risking your business in doing so.
If this is for your own use, for learning purposes only, then it can be done, but be prepared to spend some time in doing it.
Follow the link already given.
You will need to install Windows 2000 server, then run the registry edits, then install SQL 2000. You will also need to install a 'Cisco' version of the OS; (2000.4.7 or similar).Then install the Call Manager software. Your machine needs to have a decent sized hard disk and at least 512M of memory just to run the software.
If you are learning, then I would also recommend 2 good books from Cisco Press
Call Manager Best Practices &
Troubleshooting Call Manager
As you won't get any support from Cisco!
You have been warned !!
Send me your email and I will send you a steps I use to install it, but I will not recomendit use it in a live network. The better way to do it is to get some Cisco partner and to buy from them Lab equipment with 75% off.
Could you please send me the instructions, I would like to learn how to install CCM on a non-cisco platform for lab testing purpose.
thank you very much !!!
Please email me the instructions also. I am trying to install a test copy of call manager to an old Unity server.
Could you also send me the instructions? We are building one strictly for a test. Our AD is being upgraded, consolidated, and migrated. Finding someone who has accommodated Cisco Call Manager and Unity in this scenario is rare. So we are building a test lab. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
