  • Actually no OCS components are supported by Microsoft in a virtual machine.

     

    Regarding collocation of A/CDR and QoE server roles, the same backend SQL server with separate dedicated instances for each role is supported.

     

    Also, the QoE Monitoring Server document states:

     

    The QoE Monitoring Server cannot be collocated with other Office Communications Server 2007 server roles. Microsoft SQL Server™ can, however, be collocated with the QoE Monitoring Server, or it can be installed on a dedicated server.

  • It would not be suggested, however those two functions are supported by Microsoft in virtual machines.

  • That is not completely true.  We have been told by Microsoft that certain components (i.e., CDR, QoE and CWA) are supported on Microsoft Hyper-V.  In retrospect, I will say that it was a point that Microsoft agreed on because it helped close a xx,000 seat deployment.  Your mileage may vary.

  • Can you direct us to some documented supportability statements regarding that?  There is much internal discussion regarding possible future support of non-time-sensitive components of OCS, but nothing has been officially released to my knowledge.  I would think your relayed statement only holds true to that specific deployment.
