Before you install the Unified MCP software in any server, you must address the following requirements:
+
{| class="wikitable FCK__ShowTableBorders" style="width: 1200px; height: 476px"
-
* Only Unified MCP must be running on this VM host. No other product can be installed on this server.

-
* If you are performing a fresh install of Unified MCP in any deployment, be sure to verify that the virtual machine is also fresh (no previously-installed OS is present in the VM).

== Unified MCP, Release 8.5(1) ==
+
<br>
-
All Unified MCP servers run on VMs using the Unified Communications Operating System (Unified OS or UCOS).
+
-
{{note| If you are using ESXi 4.1, be sure to disable Large Receive Offload (LRO) on the ESXi 4.1 host.}}
+
-
To disable LRO, follow this procedure:
+
== Version 8.5(3)  ==
-
# Log into the ESXi host or its vCenter with vSphere Client.
+
-
# Select the host > Configuration > Advanced Settings.
+
-
# Select Net and scroll down slightly more than half way.
+
-
# Set the following parameters from 1 to 0:
+
-
#* Net.VmxnetSwLROSL
+
-
#* Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO
+
-
#* Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO
+
-
#* Net.Vmxnet2SwLRO
+
-
#* Net.Vmxnet2HwLRO

-
# Reboot the ESXi host to activate these changes.

Notes on 2 vCPU VM configuration

The 2 vCPU VM configuration can be used for a Primary or a Secondary Cisco MediaSense node.
Expansion nodes are not supported with this configuration. This configuration is available for deployment on the UCS-E servers. Look for details here Cisco_MediaSense_on_UCSE

Disk Requirements For a Primary or Secondary Node

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 80GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Disk Requirements For a Expansion Node

Expansion Nodes are not supported with this virtual machine configuration.

Supported Capabilities

Physical Hardware Audio-Weight Media Streams Supported Per Node + Concurrent API Requests Supported per non-Expansion Node Max Call Arrival Rate per Node Max Nodes per Cluster Max Media Storage per Node
UCS B/C or Specs Based 40 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 12 TB
SRE-910 60 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 210 GB
UCS-E 40 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 400 GB or 700 GB++


+ A audio call between two end points equals two Audio-Weight Media Streams.
++ Max recording storage per node on UCS E140S blades is 400GB when using 600GB SED drives, or 700GB when using 900GB 15K RPM drives.



Notes on 7 vCPU VM configuration

The 7 vCPU VM configuration can be used for a Primary, Secondary or an Expansion Cisco MediaSense node.

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 600GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Disk Requirements For a Expansion Node

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 80GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Supported Capabilities
