Does anyone have a recommendation for the best most reliable USB drive to use when setting u a UCM

RE: USB drive recommendation

Most reliable way is not to use the UCM

I can't see that it is critical if you aren't doing many read/write

In other applications reputable brands such as Sandisk, Lexar and Kingston are recommended.

RE: USB drive recommendation

I use a Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 (32 GB) and have no problems. I have used if for installs & upgrades on both UCM modules and physical servers.

There are some USB drives that just don't work, you use the USB creator and all seems OK, but you can't boot from it!

I have never gotten a USB 3 key to work and have a cheap USB 2 with 8 GB that worked in the past and which I use every time I really have to upgrade one of those beasts.
I try usually to tell customers to switch to a real voicemail. smile
