      What to Do Next

      If Microsoft Windows Server installs Internet Explorer 8, you must upgrade to Internet Explorer 9.

      Install VMware Tools

      VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhance the performance of the virtual machine guest operating system and improve management of the virtual machine.

      Procedure
        Step 1   Right-click the VM menu. Select Guest > Install / Upgrade VMware tools.
        Step 2   Wait for the popup window (this may take time) and accept the default Automatic Tools Upgrade.
        Step 3   Click OK.
        Step 4   Restart if you are prompted to do so.
        Note    VMWare Tools should be installed in all VMs

        Install Antivirus Software

        Perform this procedure for both golden-template and for direct-install options.

        This procedure is required for the applications that use the Windows 2008 Operating System.

        Install one of the following anti-virus software products for Unified CCE Call Server, the Unified CCE Data Server, the Unified CVP server, the Unified CVP OAMP server, and the Unified Reporting server.

        • McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise 8.7i / 8.8i
        • Symantec® Endpoint Protection 11.0 / 12.1
        • Trend Micro Server Protect Version 5.7 / 5.8
        Install one of the following anti-virus software products for Unified WIM and EIM.
        • McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise version 8.7
        • Symantec® AntiVirus® Corporate Edition 10.1
        Important:

        Update anti-virus software manually. Do not enable automatic updates.


        Tip


        To allow required access to installation program files or folders, perform file-blocking exclusions in the anti-virus product file-and-folder protection rules. To do this in McAfee VirusScan:
        • Launch the VirusScan console.
        • Right-click Access Protection and select Properties.
        • In the Anti-virus Standard Protection category, make sure that the rule Prevent IRC communication is unchecked in the Block column.

        Important:

        HCS for Contact Center supports Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.

        Be aware that in the firewall component of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1, the Network Threat Protection feature, must be disabled. If the feature remains enabled, which is the default, both sides of a duplexed router come up in simplex mode, thus blocking communication between each side of a router. This blocking impacts all deployment types.

        If you retain the default (enabled) and start services on side A and B of the router, a Symantec message pops up in the system tray indicating: The client will block traffic from IP address [side A router address] for the next 600 seconds(s). The same message is also written to the security log in client management. The Symantec Network Threat Protection traffic log indicates that a default firewall rule called “Block_all” was dynamically enabled. The result, according to the router logs, is that both sides of the router come up in simplex mode.

        To resolve the issue, you must disable the Symantec firewall and restart both sides of the router. To do this, double click the Symantec icon in the system tray and select Change Settings. Then configure settings for Network Threat Protection and uncheck the Enable Firewall check box at the top of the Firewall tab.

        Disabling Port Blocking

        On the computers that run Unified CVP Server components, such as Call Server, Reporting server, and VXML Server, with an anti-virus software configured to block ports, exclude Unified CVP processes and tomcat6.exe. In addition, exclude Voice Browser.exe for the call server process.


        Note


        If you use an anti-virus software other than McAfee Virus Scan, perform the equivalent exclusions in port blocking rules of that anti-virus software.
        Procedure
          Step 1   Choose Start > All Programs > McAfee > VirusScan Console.
          Step 2   Double-Click on Access Protection and Choose Anti-virus Standard Protection.
          Step 3   Choose Prevent IRC communication from the list and click Edit.
          Step 4   Add tomcat6.exe, tomcat5.exe, VoiceBrowser.exe in the Processes to Exclude text-box and click Ok.
          Step 5   Click Ok.

          Install Unified Contact Center Enterprise

          Complete the following procedure to install the Unified Contact Center Enterprise.

          Procedure
            Step 1   Add the template virtual machine into the destination domain.
            Step 2   Mount the correct version of the Unified Contact Center Enterprise ISO image to the virtual machine’s CD/DVD drive. For more information, see Mount and Unmount ISO Files.
            Step 3   Run setup.exe from the icm-CCE-CCH Installer directory on the CD/DVD drive and follow the InstallShield procedures to install Unified Contact Center Enterprise.
            Step 4   In the Select the installation method screen, click Fresh Install. Click Next.
            Step 5   In the Maintenance Release (MR) screen, leave the Maintenance Release Location field blank. Click Next.
            Step 6   In the Installation Location screen, choose C in the Drive drop-down list. Click Next.
            Step 7   In the Ready to Copy Files screen, click Install.
            Step 8   In the Installation Complete screen, click Yes, I want to restart my computer now. Click Finish.
            Step 9   Apply the Unified Contact Center Enterprise maintenance release, if applicable.
            Step 10   Unmount the Unified Contact Center Enterprise ISO image.
            Step 11   Move the template virtual machine back to the workgroup.

            Convert the Virtual Machine to a Golden Template

            Perform this procedure for the golden-template install option.

            Note


            VMware uses the term Template. HCS for Contact Center uses the term Golden Template for templates consisting of application and operating systems that are used for HCS for Contact Center.


            Before You Begin

            Ensure that the template virtual machine is in the WORKGROUP.

            Procedure
              Step 1   If the VM is not already powered off, from the VM menu, select Power > Shut down the guest.
              Step 2   From the VMware vCenter Inventory menu, right-click the virtual machine and choose Template > Convert to Template.
