Deploy SBS / Migrate SBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    one question, I´m currently using one of these terribly slow Audiocodes SBA modules with Lync 2013.

    As our infrastructure is already on SfB2015, I would love to replace that not by an updated module, but with a VM installation in my local ESX environment.

    So there are a few questions:

    1. I know that it is technically possible to just do a P2V migration of the SBA module, but would this be a licensing issue? OS is licensed by the hosts Windows server datacenter license, but what about Lync?

    2. I can´t find that much information of how to deploy a Server2012R2 VM and use this as Survivable Branch Server...is there any How-To to do that, maybe even including best practices for VM configuration to get a supported state here?

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Regards,

    LordBadHabit
