Unity Server

tokhsstokhss Member Posts: 473
Ok, I know this board has so many LAB questions, and rightfully so.. however, can someone tell me if its ok to run the following ..

1. Server (UNITY, TFTP) .. (CM7.1 ISO)
2. 2620XM CME 4.1
3. 881W (data vlan )
4. 2960 PCL
5. 7940/60

the reason for running unity on the server is due to not having a aim-cue and since i heard the CCNAV exam is more CLI oriented, i figured i could get by with having the current setup.


thanks !!

    you can run unity, and unity connection in vmware. But i don't think they test these products and ccNAV level.

    I thought the exam was on Unit Express.. are the CLI/GUI different from Express/business/full blown ?

    how do you recommend i setup Unity.. so i stick with what i have or do i really have to get Express up and running?

    thank you !

    It's based on the NM-CUE module for the router or on the UC-500 series devices.

    I am sure you can get by, I was just telling you what they expect in the lab pods for the official courseware.

    I don't think that Unity or Unity Connection is a appropriate replacement for the NM-CUE or the UC-500.

    Having CM7 and CME means you have two call managers - you'll need to make them play nice together

    I have CM6 up and running very nicely on my Linux server

    But I don't have a CME in my lab yet

    I'm working on it and when I get it all going I'll post back

    Of course we have a lot CCIE's who look at these threads so maybe one of them can help you in the meantime

    Keep labbing it up bud

    Super Bowl Sunday yins!

    E - A - G - L - E - S

    Eagles!

    Oh wait we lost

    But there's still hope for us folks from PA

    Back in the 40's PA only had one team because all the boys were overseas

    So I will wear all my Eagles gear and shout it out

    GO STEAGLES!!!!!!!

    No full blown CM or Unity configuration @ the CCNA:Voice level but you are required to describe components of a UC network. The Unity Express coverage isn’t real deep either – Exam blueprint calls for basic setup and configuration. If you want hands on practice, you’ll either need an NM-CUE, AIM-CUE, or use the built in CUE in the UC500.

    well its on order.. i didnt want to open a new thread..all used of course.

    1. 2650xm cme4.1 with moh, phone files, etc..
    2. 3524 power.
    3. NM2V w/fx0/fxs
    4. 7940s x 2
    5. ADSL wic (just for kicks cuz i wanted one)

    at somepoint i will order a NM-CUE .. i dont know why the aim-cue is so much more expensive .. the NMcue is 40 gig vs 1 gig aim cue.

    Yeah, I used the CCNA:Voice as an excuse to pick one up even though I already had experience with them. It’s now been promoted from lab use, to running the phones/network at my residence. :)

    You’ll be able to practice just about everything for the CCNA:Voice with a UC520 – CME stuff via the CLI, and GUI setup via the CCA.

    where did you get yours from? so many resellers and the prices have a wide gap.

    A friend of mine works for a channel partner and was able to pick one up for me.
