Hi, I was wondering how everyone keeps their versions up to date on their voip applications. Is there a site that Cisco has where I can find out what I should be running for Callmanager, CER, BARS,Unity, and IPCC? I have been put in charge of keeping these up to date but have no idea where to start. Thanks in advance.
Hope all is well my friend. Good question! This can become very complicated very quickly especially when it comes to inter-operability and compatabilty between these products. You don't want to get too far behind in versioning but you don't want to be "bleeding edge" either. This is probably the best Cisco doc, especially for these types of questions, that I have ever seen;
Cisco Unified Communications Manager Software Compatibility Matrix
Have a look at the various sections and you will see what the latest and greatest versions are, and what works with and has been tested with each other piece of the puzzle. You have to be careful and really plan these out because Hardware comes into play with many upgrades as well. As I said this can be come complicated but not overwhelming if properly planned out :)
Hope this helps!
