OCS 2007 Demo Lab with exchange UM without a PABX RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hello,

    I'm considering putting a small demo lab together to demonstrate the features of ocs to my customers.

     

    For the purposes of this demo I dont want to connect it to my PABX and would be happy to use just communicator for Voice calls.

     

    I have OCS standard version installed in this lab and can make communicator calls betweens clients and all other OCS features work fine.

     

    I would now like to install the exchange UM role on my exchange server however all the documentation I can find seems to imply I need to a PABX to use the exchange UM functionality.

     

    Is this correct ?

     

    can I connect the Um role to OCS with any external to OCS voice capabilities?

     

    Any help or pointers would be greatly approeciated.

  • With Exchange 2007 SP1 it is fully supported to have OCS as your PBX in a UM configuration.  Here is the overview on how to accomplish this:
