CUCM on VMware on a non branded PC

CUCM on VMware on a non branded PC

CUCM on VMware on a non branded PC


I need to start putting up a lab for the CCNP Voice. Is there anyone out here who could advice me/send a thread on how to do this? I have a Core i5, 2 GB of RAM, 1 TB HDD. Is this enough? If I could have the steps/procedure in doing this would be helpful. Thanks a lot.

RE: CUCM on VMware on a non branded PC

What version of UCM do you plan on installing? I believe 8.5 and up requires 4GB. Otherwise you should be fine. Once you create the VM disk, you will need the installer disc or image of UCM to install it. Install isnt any different on VM than it is on a physical box (at least from what I remember).

RE: CUCM on VMware on a non branded PC

Thank you gnrslash4life. yes, will be 8.5 or 9 if available. I will be starting from scratch and still looking for procedure to do this...what is the free downloadable version of VMware that will work on this? any idea ?

You can use VMWare workstation. If you get the Cisco Press CCNA Voice Lab workbook it has instruction for visualizing the UCM installation. Let me know if you need a link to it and I can dig it up.
