Meeting Place 8.5 install on Bare Metal UCS-C

I am trying to install MP 8.5, Webex Scheduling with Two Application Server nodes.

One Application Server is to be put on VM 5.0 on a UCS_C.

The second Application Server is to be put directly on a Bare Metal UCS_C, NO VMware.

Is the second scenario supported by Cisco and TAC?   

thanks

Any help will be appreciated.

Hello tknapp,

You will need WMware for MP, keep in mind that MP can be the only VM running on a server (at east on C210M2). My understanding is that Cisco only supports UC apps running on  top of a WMWare hypervisor on UCS servers.

You will have to pay for 2 CPU license to VMware for each server. So in essence MP (in it's present form) can be virtualized but not really, as it can be the only VM on the physical box.

Regards,

Greg.

As Gordon mentioned as of right now MP is not supported on bare metal (install is not supported and same not supported by TAC).

Better to use VMware 5.0 and install MP 8.5 with MR3 and then configure your system. Just FYI as of right now 5.1 is not supported.
