Hi Guys,

Recently bought 1 IBM server (2x146 HD & 8 GB of Ram). Next month I'm planning to upgrade the ram to 40 GB and add 300 GB HDD.Before I was getting some Ram errors. I fixed it.

What OS do I have to install? How I can start with this server?

I would like to install cucm & other things.

Thanks in advance.

    Do a "bare metal" EVE-NG installation (linux OS) on the server and you'll be able to have a top-notch sandbox for Cisco UC (CUCM, Unity, IM&P, Telepresence Server & Conductor, Cisco Meeting Server, etc).
