CUCM VM's residing in SAN

Does Cisco Support the placing of CUCM Virtual Machines totally within a SAN?

We have a C240 connected to our SAN via iSCSI.  The C240 is running eSXI, however the publisher and subscribers are mapped as LUNS on a non-Cisco SAN.   Is this configuration supported by the TAC? 

Thanks

Yes CUCM does support SAN storage and boot from SAN as well as long as it meets the requirements. Review below:

Do bear in mind that if you're using TRCs for them, it's no longer considered a TRC if you do that, as Cisco only tested and guaranteed the performance with the onboard storage. Your support level would become a spec based TRC.

Assuming you meet the requirements outlined in the links Terry posted, yes, it would still be supported.
