next week i am asked to install a callmanager server on an mcs server.but i have some doubts.when i look at the MCS server from HP i can see 2 rj-45 ports(for redundancy) and i see
a couple of hard disks on the server.i know how to install callmanagers but i have no idea what
to do with this multiple hard disks and rj45 ports.

    A clean install of just callmanager, an upgrade of callmanager or the whole thing OS and all?

    There is an HP NIC utility that you can use so the two NICs provide redundancy and/or load balancing. If a NIC fails, the other will keep CM connected to the network.

    Each NIC should get connected to a different switch to avoid a switch failure having your CM isolated from the net. Just make sure the VLAN on both ports on both switches is the same :P

    Version of Callmanager?

    Model of Server?

    Size of hard drives?

    And what the heck.... how much memory?

    well first off the hard disks are just part of a logical array in a RAID environment so the whole system is created as a logical drive.

    THe two NIC in a teaming environment are not supported by Cisco. But i guess that it is a perfectly acceptable to assign two IP's and plug them into two different switches although we are not doing that.

    Good luck
