    I believe it will be VMware.

    Guys, I've successfully installed RHEL 6.5. After that I tried to install Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.6.1 bootable, but installation is not running, just Linux is loaded. Is it something that should be configured in Linux or something wrong with CUCM image?

    There is no need to install RHEL first, the CUCM installation contains both cut down/hardened/customised version of RHEL and the CUCM application. Make sure VMware is set to boot from the ISO first (the number of times I've been caught...)

    OMG, I didn't know that. But how do I know what exactly Linux and which version will be installed with CUCM? I ask that because it is required to specify type of Linux and version before installing guest machine.

    Here are the settings from the Cisco OVA Template:

    2 vCPUs
    6GB RAM
    RHEL 5 (not x64)
    HDD1 80GB (SCSI)
    HDD2 80GB (SCSI)

    You can skimp on the provisioned hardware - but if the install balks you'll need to up the RAM, and lower after setup is complete

    Just trying to remember where I last saw it...

    Unified Communications Virtualization Downloads (including OVA/OVF Templates) - DocWiki

    it has the VMware sizing details for most Unified Communications deployments...you can usually down-size the vRAM to some extent later...

    I found that doing a pre-deployment of CUCM (skips configuration, just copies all files to the vHDD), shutting down the VM and then exporting an ova/ovf file makes later lab deployments so much easier....pre-deploy once, build many...

    It seems that something wrong was with CUCM image.

    Are you using a physical disk or ISO? You can try the media check at the beginning of setup to see if the image is good.

    It's ISO image.

    I've had issues with ISOs mounted on the same data store as the VMs - you could try burning a disk (or connecting to an ISO on your workstation) if this is the case. If not, may just be a bad image.

    I have Domain Controller with DNS - 192.168.1.2
    During CUCM installation I specified DNS address - 192.168.1.2

    I specified 192.168.1.9 for CUCM server with BRIDGED type of network. At the moment CUCM server successfully replies on ping from any PC, but i get this error.



    Is it reverse lookup zone which should be configured?

    Don't bother with DNS for the lab... You will need a reachable NTP server though. I don't setup DNS in production either - Best Practices state to remove all name associations and use IP addresses. It's one less thing to have to trouble shoot when stuff hits the fan!

    Otherwise, yeah, add a static entry on the DNS server.

    I skipped the step with Reverse Lookup Zone but now stucked on the step with NTP. Unfortunately both host and guest machines don't have an Internet access. What can be specified as an NTP server?

    you can get free NTP software for a OS based PC, or you can use a Cisco router as an NTP "master"

    You can setup your guest's NIC to be bridged with the host's physical NIC. Then spin up GNS3 and drop a cloud and a router on the white board. Configure the cloud with your physical NIC. Connect the cloud to the router. Boot up the router and assign it's interface an IP on the same network as your host's interface. Configure NTP master on the router. Ensure your host can ping the router's interface. Use the router's IP as your NTP server in CUCM install.
