Uploading DMA file onto CUCM 6.12

Unanswered Question
Dec 3rd, 2008

We are upgrading CCM 4.0(2a) to CUCM6.12.

Is there a way to upload the DMA file after the new CUCM 6.1 cluster is built? or Does this step has to happend during the installation of the first node/publisher node?

I have this problem too.

Hi Fureya,

Great question! Sadly you will need to re-build to new box choosing the Windows migration option if you want to use the DMA .tar file as this Step is done on the build of the first Node:(

Import Windows Data

This option allows you to import database information from a Cisco Unified Communications Manager 4.x system by using a file that the Data Migration Assistant (DMA) tool produces.

Upgrading the First Cisco Unified Communications Manager Node

When you choose Windows Upgrade, the installation wizard prompts you for the location of the preexisting Windows configuration information that the Data Migration Assistant (DMA) tool created. See the Data Migration Assistant User Guide for more information on the DMA tool.

Step 1 - In the Windows Upgrade window, import data from a Windows version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager by choosing Yes


Hope this helps!
