It may be a silly question , but I`m supporting a 5.1.3 install without the install media. It has been suggested that I downward the recovery disk for 5.1(3) from CCO, in the event that we have to blow around install can I install using this disk only. Connected to this question is the license files. I can view the files, so do I just copy and paste them from the screen and save them to a file, if so what do I save the file as - .lic ? also what do i call them - the same name as previous

Using the recovery CD you can not install the software itself, you need the install media for that. More information on how to get these can be found here:

Regarding the licenses you can copy/paste, just make sure that you don't put any additional characters in the file. If any issues our licensing team can always generate the licenses again as well. An alertative is to download them via cli:

file list license /

file get license

Actually, I have the and I burned a booteable disc..When I use this booteable disc in a server I I see the "Instalation CCM 5.1.2 Menu" on the screen....Why? Then the question is ... what can I really use this CD for? recovery file system only? other uses?

Thanks for you help!!!

Hi Ivan,

Recovery cd is used for system check only, you can not install using this cd. You can also not download bootable/installable media from To get these you either have to order them through PUT or maybe your account team can help as well.

Please mark this topic as answered if case your questions are answered.
