Can CUCM 8.5 version be installed on a DL 380 G5 server in Virtual environment (Vmware Esxi 4.0 or 4.1)? Or does it have to be only installed in UCS boxes for VMware? I understand that the DL380G5 can itself be used for fresh installation without VM.

The intent here is to have multiple VM's running on the same HP or similar IBM servers which could save cost. ( This is for lab environment)

I suppose this is for lab environment. For production, use UCS

For lab you do just about anything.

For production VM you have three choices:

UCS - C series (ideal for larger deployments where system engineers have bought into the Cisco Blade environment otherwise too expensive)

UCS - B Series

Cisco MCS series - So far they don't support it on Dell hardware, (HP and IBM only...so far)

How did you write such a huge subject line?

In our lab, in addition to bare metal installs, we have 5 x DL380s each running ESX and have quite a number of ICM/CVP systems built on virtual servers. I don't have CUCM 8.5 and cannot answer your question precisely, but it does work for CUCM 6.1(3a) and 7.1(5).

Geoff

Hi Geoff .. I realised the subject line after posting it ..

Would you know if CUIC 8.5 be installed on a IBM or Dell server if the minimum requirements are met ? I am asking this as the operating system is Cisco OS.

Thanks
