We are deploying WCS 7.0 on a UCS B200 M2 blade with dual 5650 processors. The blade is running the free version of VMWare. It is the Standard WCS Server deployment (500-2000 access points). We have 850 lightweight access points in this deployment that need to managed by WCS.
The processors are 6 core.
Do I need to allocate 6 vcpus to the WCS virtual machine? This is what the documentation seems to indicate, but that is not supported by the free version of VMWare (maximum 4 v-cpus per guest)
Also, the doco only talks about the C series B200 M2, are the recommendations the same for B series blades?
Finally does Cisco have an OVA template available for deploying WCS on UCS, like the UC guys have done?
The specs you have are enough for WCS and should not be an issue. The limitation in the cpu is due to the free version, if you want to allocate more CPU's you will need to purchase the full version of VMWARE from http://www.vmware.com.
And unfortunatly we don't have a WCS OVA template but it something I will look into.
