We have CUCM Cluster on BE7K on 10K user OVA, there is a branch with existing seperate BE6K with 100 users. we are migrating the the 100 users to HQ Cluster and need local call processing.
I though of 2 options for the Branch.
1. 10K user subscriber on BE6K in Branch
2. 1K user subscriber BE6000 OVA in Branch.
However The BE6K comes with Cisco UC Virt. Hypervisor Plus 6.x license which do not support 10K CUCM OVA i believe (Please correct me if wrong). FYI: No other applications are running on this UCS server
for the second option, the SRND says
When mixing VM configurations within a cluster, differences in capacity between the various VM configurations must be considered because the supported overall cluster capacity is limited by the cluster capacity corresponding to the smallest VM configuration within the cluster.
So If I add 1000 user BE6K Subscriber node my cluster will be limited for 1000 users.
Any Advice to add BE6K server in 100 user branch with local call processing for BE7K cluster is appreciated.
Adding to it. All my branch users are presently connected from HQ cluster, I am trying to achieve local call processing for branch site using existing BE6K UCS hardware at branch.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Anthony for support.
is it supported to add CUCM TFTP only node in the cluster on BE6K host without reducing my existing cluster capacity ?
To reduce the firmware load delays over WAN. When a new IP Phone is added or factory reset it takes hours to download firmware, I understand, the reason could be the packet loss when it transfer over WAN and TFTP operates as a lock-step protocol.
