Installing the Unified Communications Suite 7 Update 3 Stack

Looking to Create a UCS 7.3 POC Deployment? Stack it All on a Single Host.
If you need to create a Comms deployment, for say, evaluation or proof-of-concept purposes, the best place to go is the Single Host Deployment Example.
This doc "describes how to install Communications Suite 7 Update 3 software on one computer for a functioning deployment. This document is intended for any evaluator, system administrator, or installation technician who wants to install and evaluate the services delivered by these components."
It really takes all the guesswork out of deciding what configuration parameters to configure across the component products to get everything working. However, take note: This example deployment is not intended for production purposes, and should be used for evaluation and for training purposes only.
Nevertheless, if you are new to the product, this is definitely the place I would recommend to start.
