Upgrading Cisco Unity

Answered Question
Aug 21st, 2007

I have a Unity Server running unified messaging and at version 4.0(5). I'm looking at doing an upgrade to version 4.1(1). Are there any compatibility issues with running Callmanager 4.1(3); also, will the hardware need to be MCS, or are non-MCS installations supported with this software?

Hi -

The Unity platforms list details the supported MCS and non-MCS server hardware for running Unity. Is there a reason you don't want to go to Unity 4.2 or 5.0? Both support CallManager 4.1(3), which is our current version.

From what I had read, I wasn't sure that 4.2 would be supported with CCM 4.1(3). Now this changes things for planning. Thanks!

Hi -

Randy is correct - 5.X requires a license upgrade via Product Upgrade Tool. Mine took about 10 days, I think, to order and ship.

Hi Taylor,

You are correct 4.0 to 4.1 or 4.2 does not have any licensing requirements unless you are changing servers :) Here are the pertinent docs;

Hope this helps!
