A virtualized Telephony Control Server is hardware independent; however, the physical server that you use must meet a specific set of minimum requirements to ensure the product functions properly.
Before installing the virtualized Telephony Control Server, make sure the physical server meets these minimum requirements:
Physical server requirements for hosting a virtual machineParent topic: Planning a virtualized deployment
Each physical server that will host one or more virtual machines must meet a set of requirements to ensure performance. The figures stated are minimum requirements and vary with the number of users supported by the deployment, assuming a typical Enterprise Feature set with no Continuous tracing/Distributed registration/Nodes on Separate servers/Active-Standby mode.
Virtual machine hard disk requirements
The amount of disk space required for each virtual machine is dependent on a variety of factors, including space for snapshots, installation images, and VMware itself. Use this information to determine the minimum required disk space for the physical server hosting each virtual machine.
Virtual machine network requirements
The virtualized IBM Sametime
Unified Telephony deployment requires that 4 subnets be presented to it as labels during virtual machine creation. Each of these labels needs to be in a different subnet as presented to Sametime
Unified Telephony; these subnets are used in building the node.cfg
file for installing the Telephony Control Server.
Other requirements for hosting a virtual machine
Other than the parameters used for configuration, most of the virtual machine parameters should be left at their default settings. There are several exceptions, discussed in here.
