Unattended Cisco Unified Communications installations

Agor85

Hello,

 

I would like to generate an auto answer file for unattended installation using the generator at:

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/applicat/content/cuc-afg/index.html

 

But I stuck with the download process. No matter what browser I use, they interpret the XML data after clicking on download and I just see plain text. Does anybody know a plugin or option to get the "real" xml-code?

 

Thank you

Why not just use PCD for the new install, takes few minutes to deploy it and create the new install task.

Yes review that as well, but would like to see what requires more/less steps for an full installation.

I'll take PCD any day.  You just deploy the PCD app from OVF file, discover your ESXi hosts (assuming your ESXi licenses allows NFS mounting), deploy the VM OVAs, upload install ISO only to PCD SFTP store, no need to add it to each ESXI datastore, create new install cluster in PCD  and lastly in PCD create new install task.  You fill out the information, i.e. IP address, usernames, DNS, NTP only once in PCD for all nodes that are being installed.

Yes - I will check on the process, maybe it is really the most efficient approach. Thought, I would be happy to get this generator working, too :-).
