Exchange 2010 SP1 has not been qualified for Unity by Cisco yet. Cisco has 60 days to qualify from the time of its release. I've seen several customers who apply SP1 and it breaks Unity as you've mentioned. From the Cisco TAC side, we would point you in the direction of removing SP1 until it's been qualified and any issues have been worked through and documented.
