SCOM and CDR database on same server as RTC. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a small installation of OCS 2007 SE will all the componets on a new HP dual Quad core processor machine with 4 gigs of memory.

    If my plan works out we will have about 40-80 people on Communicator and maybe 1 live meetings of 5-15 people each day. My question is is anyone running a server this size and is it acceptable to load the SQL CDR database on the same server.  I was also going to try to load System Center operations manager on the same server.

    If I followed all the documentation I think this could be 5 servers.

    Thanks, I'm going to try to load up SCOM this weekend and CDR next week.

  • Hi Scott


    You could run all of this on 1 server but I would really recomend you do not run SCOM, it is quite intensive and you really want all the power memory etc for OCS, I think you will be fine running CDR on the same server with that many users, however I am not sure if it will let you, my gut says you can but I have not tried as i have other databases around.


    Have fun

    Though I'm sure it's possible to run SCOM on the same server with a lot of tweaks it's highly undesirable.

  • It is supported to run the Archiving Server on the Same box as your Front-End server.

    You only need to be aware that this is not good practice if you have many users, but that is not a problem in your case


    I agree not to run the SCOM on the OCS Server, you don't really want to interupt real time communications because of other Applications that can hurt badly

  • Hi,


    Would there be an issue to deploy two multiroles OCS FE/CDR (both roles on one server) servers and load balanced via hardware load balancer? Or I have to split them and load balanced each role with dedicated load balancer for each role? The OCS db server is on separated clustered SQL.


    I need to deploy for 500 total users with ~50 users concurrent access.

  • The Archiving/CDR role does not require (nor able to use) hardware load balancers as they don't facilitate client connections.  The A/CDR servers using Message queuing to pick up messages from the FE servers.  Your best bet is to separate Archiving/CDR to a dedicated server but you can use the same clustered SQL backend for the FE and A/CDr databases as long as you use separate SQl instances for each.
