This three day training event is intended for individuals who are responsible for migrating current UC environments onto UCSM-managed Cisco server based technologies (B-Series and C-Series) running VMware ESXi.
Unlike traditional server based installations, Cisco UCS servers can be configured through the UCS Manager (UCSM) using Service Profiles. This training will begin with a brief discussion of the changing Data Center server environment, where the Cisco UCS system fits into this environment, and LAN and storage (SAN) considerations.
An overview of the UCS products will be provided, with emphasis on the advantages the UCS Manager brings to server provisioning. Server provisioning, through the use of easy-to-configure Service Profiles, will also be covered in detail, along with supporting labs.
VMware ESXi is an integral part of this installation and so an overview of VMware will be included.
UC on UCS specific considerations will then be discussed, including minimum requirements, caveats, recommendations, etc.
Lectures will be complemented by hands-on labs:
- UCS Manager Overview
- Creating Resource Pools
- Building Service Profiles
- Installing VMware ESXi
- Installing Unified communications Manager (Subscriber)
- Connecting the Subscriber to the Publisher
Note: This training event is limited to the above topics. The only specific UC topics discussed will be those directly related to the installation of UC on Cisco servers (e.g., software versions supported, installation considerations and caveats, etc.)
Who Should Attend:
Individuals interested in, or responsible for, the installation or migration of Ciscos Unified Communications (UC) Manager (a.k.a. CallManager) on a Unified Computing System (UCS) B-Series blade server or C-Series server (managed by UCSM) platform running VMware.
