Video: Setting up a Cisco Collaboration Lab – Preparation

This is going to be the first of few videos that I’m creating on how to set up a Cisco Collaboration Lab.

This is just to get a baseline ready for starting configuring CUCM and other UC applications but today is just CUCM Preparation. I prefer looking at the video in Speed x1.39 – I noticed I’m a slow talker 🙂 hope you enjoy the video.

The Video


The Content

  • I describe in a very high level how I’m running my lab
  • Download the ISO image and the OVA template
  • Make the ISO image bootable.. For more information on this one follow this link: Make a non-bootable image
  • Configure the OVA in ESXI 6.5 Web Client and the Thick Client

What to look forward to?

Setting a lab is very easy and is the best thing you can do to help you at work and on your studies
