More UCCX Virtualized Stuff

So I have been working all night on my UCCX being virtualized and have more hints and tips for those looking at doing it.

First off, just so you know: Yes you can use the Windows 2003 Operating Installation Disk on Vmware and it will detect as a Cisco Server and let you install, you only need 15 Gigabytes of hard disk too which makes a welcome change to the other communications manager deployments in VMWARE which want 80 Gig.

A word to the wise though, because the operating system that is installed is Appliance edition of Windows 2003 it runs like an absolute dog, MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL THE VMWARE TOOLS because that re-enables the hardware acceleration for mouse and graphics making it usable again.

I hope this helps someone out there.
