I'm about to migrate from a BE5000 installation to a BE6000 and am wondering if the Cisco PCD can be used for the migration. In reading the "Prime Collaboration Deployment Administration Guide 11.5," I came across the following note:
"Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment is not compatible with all license types of VMware vSphere ESXi, because some of these licenses do not enable required VMware APIs.
Cisco Business Edition 6000 and Cisco Business Edition 7000 servers are preinstalled with Cisco UC Virtualization Hypervisor. If you plan to use Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment with application VMs on these servers, you must substitute a higher virtualization software feature level."
So what exactly does this mean? Is it saying that the hypervisor on the BE6000 needs to be "substituted to a higher virtualization software feature level" to support the UC applications for a successfull PCD migration? Or is it saying that only the hypervisor supporting the PCD needs to be substituted t a higher virtualization software feature level? I'm assuming that if I deploy the PCD on a compatible hypervisor that is not on the BE6000 (the Cisco spun hypervisor), then I can do a successful migration? Kind of confusing.
Thanks for any help.
