supports the New Identity process for use with
Unified Communications Manager. The New Identity process is designed
to start with a Communications Manager application that is fully installed and
configured with common settings. Often, the initial VM is saved as a VMware
template and cloned as new Communications Manager publisher nodes come online.
Identity process copies the VMware template and changes a set of primary
settings, such as the IP address and hostname, to give a new VM a unique
identity in the network.
