  • Shoretel's own DVM Rackmount Server w/firmware Based OS

    Shoretel should offer its own Rack mount DVM server product, with its own firmware OS:dots:

    After working with ShoreTel's Support several times related to DMV issues within the MS windows server environment, their recommendation was
    1. A dedicated MS windows 2003 Server or greater
    2. Not a member of an AD or windows Domain.
    3. Turn off, Microsoft Update.

    At this point, I suggested ShoreTel should offer its own DVM Server HW product, since there would always be too many uncontrollable compatibility issues with the DVM application installed on a MS server.

        Ahem...I think they are further along than you think.

                  I believe the new SGXXv switches are Linux based. We have a SG90v in one of our branch offices and it seems to work well.

                    Let me retract the "seems to work well" statement.

                    When performing an upgrade, the switch goes into a TFTP loop and never comes out of it. Apparently, this is one of the reasons Shoretel is delaying the release of the SGXXv switches.

                      Well, The SG-50V, SG-90V and SG-90BRIV switches are NOT the HQ DVS in a box solution I was recommending. They only support secondary VM & AA applications. Why only the baby steps ShoreTel?

                        As an existing customer whom has purchased 2 SG120/24, & a SGT1 for my HQ site A running the HQ DVS on a HP Server w/Windows 2003, & 1 SG120 for my remote site B.

                        I'm want to replace the HQ DVS with JUST the DVS on a ShoreTel RM box, & it would be nice to use the SG50V at the remote site B,

                        But with the SG50V I would be paying for a Switch with ports I don't need. I understand the product positioned for new customers, but what about ShoreTel Base Customers? Don't sell me more than I need. If anything Price down the SG50V with a license that restricts just the VM & AA functions only for your base customers.
