About Direct Installation

This chapter explains the sequence of tasks for creating virtual machines directly on the customer destination servers.

The sequence is:
  1. Download the OVA files. See Open Virtualization Files
  2. Create VMs (this chapter)

  3. After you create all of the VMs, perform initial configuration to configure them for customer use. See Configuration.

Create VM for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Call Server

Follow this sequence of tasks to create a VM directly for the CCE Call Servers on Side A and Side B.

Create VM for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise Data Server

Follow this sequence of tasks to create a virtual machine directly for the CCE Data Servers on Side A and Side B. The process is nearly identical to creating a VM for the CCE Call Server, with the additional step to install Microsoft SQL Server.

Create VMs for the Cisco Unified Customer Voice Portal Servers

Follow this sequence of tasks to directly create the virtual machines for the Unified CVP servers and for the Unified CVP OAMP server. Each Unified CVP server combines the Call server and VXML server functionality.
  • The Unified CVP servers are deployed as four virtual machines—two on Side A and two on Side B.

  • The Unified CVP OAMP server is deployed as one virtual machine on Side A.

This process is similar for the Unified CVP servers and the Unified CVP OAMP servers—the differences are selections you make from the OVA drop-down list and in the Select Packages options during the installation.

Sequence

Task

1 Using CCE-PAC-M1-CVP.ova, Create a Virtual Machine from the OVA.
From the drop-down list:
  • Select Unified CVP Server when you create the Unified CVP Server VM.
  • Select Unified CVP OAMP Server when you create the Unified CVP OAMP Server VM.
2

Install Windows Server 2008

NTP configuration is required if this machine is not in the same domain as the Call Servers and Data Servers. See NTP and Time Synchronization.

3 Install VMware Tools
4 Configure Network Adapters for Cisco Unified CVP
5 Run Windows Updates
6 Install Anti-virus Software
7 Install Cisco Unified CVP Server

Create VM for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Publisher

Follow this sequence of tasks to directly create the virtual machine for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager publisher.

Sequence

Task

1 Using CCE-PAC-M1-CUCM.ova. Create a Virtual Machine from the OVA. (Select 7500 user node from the drop-down list.)
2

Install the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Publisher.

3 Install VMware Tools

Create VM for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Subscriber

Follow this sequence of tasks to directly create the virtual machine for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager subscriber.

Sequence

Task

1 Using CCE-PAC-M1-CUCM.ova, Create a Virtual Machine from the OVA. (Select 7500 user node from the drop-down list.)
2

Install the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Subscriber.

3 Install VMware Tools

Create VM for Cisco Finesse Primary

Follow this sequence of steps to create a VM directly for the Cisco Finesse Primary node on Side A.

Sequence

Task

1 Using the CCE-PAC-M1-Finesse.ova, Create a Virtual Machine from the OVA. (There is no selection from the drop-down list.)
2

Install the Cisco Finesse Primary node.

See Direct Install for Publishers/​Primary Nodes of VOS-Based Contact Center Applications.

3 Install VMware Tools

Create VM for Cisco Finesse Secondary

Follow this sequence of tasks to directly create the virtual machine for the Cisco Finesse Secondary node on Side B.

When you have the VMs for the Cisco Finesse primary and secondary nodes, you can configure them.

Sequence

Task

1 Using CCE-PAC-M1-Finesse.ova, Create a Virtual Machine from the OVA. (There is no selection from the drop-down list.)
2
