Announcing the impending End the Sale the Cisco Unity Server MCS-7835-I3-ECS1 and MCS-7845-I3-ECS1


This is an announcement for an upcoming product End-of-Sale for the Cisco Unity Servers MCS-7835-I3-ECS1 and MCS-7845-I3-ECS1.

For more details, refer to the EOL announcement (EOL8181) on :

With this EOS, there will be no MCs-7835 or MCS-7845 server SKUs for Cisco Unity that come with a Platform configuration disk. Customer will need to start procuring and installing the OS and other components on their own. The installation requirements and procedures are clearly documented in the install guide. E.g. the install guide for the Cisco Unity Version 8.x software, details how to install Windows 2003 on a Unity server using a Retail disc here-

A list of all install guides for Cisco Unity can be found here -

For customers needing a new Unity server, we recommend the Cisco UCS solution as it allows for easier upgrades to the Unity Connection product for the future.

If the customer does want to continue with MCS server solutions they have two choices –

  1. Buy the bare metal MCS SKU from Cisco as specified in the EOS.
  2. Buy the server directly from IBM. The IBM part numbers and ordering information can be found here -
