Upgrade CCM 5.1 to 6.0

Unanswered Question

We have a CallManager 5.1 with more than 500 DLUs, it works fine since few months.


We want to upgrade it to Communications Manager 6.0.1 but we can't find an official migration procedure on Cisco website...


We received an "upgrade 5.x to 6.0" CD which contains a .sgn patch file, and a PAK for generate the Node license.


Via the OS Admin/Upgrade feature of the 5.1, we installed without problem the patch -5to6-.sgn in approximately 1 hour. But after the final reboot and the new license upload, everything seems working except that the CiscoCallManager Service don't run.


In RTMT, we can see a error message "Error - License Validation Failed for SW Version Feature" although the ccm6 license is present and "Used" in Unit Report.


What is the problem?

My questions are :


- Where is the official procedure?

- Why the CCM Service can't run?


Thanks for help!

CM 6.0 requires a new license type: "CM Software Version License" on top of the Node and DLU licenses. Do you have that?

Our through PAK generated license is of type:


Product Name: CM6.0-K9-DEMO

Product Description: SW Unified CM 6.0 Appliance - Not For Resale


A license type which permits normally a 6.0 node installation. Why not an upgrade ?

What version of CallManager 5.1 did you upgrade from? I'm trying to do the upgrade from 5.1.3 to 6.0.1 and the upgrade file is not recognized from the CD/DVD or through SFTP.


I have a TAC case currently open from this. This upgrade disk is not for a demo version but should still be basically the same file.

We tried to upgrade from a 5.1(1) version. In conclusion, the upgrade worked fine except the license file which was not applicable to an upgrade.


Good luck with your case, and thank you for inform us when you will successful upgrade.
