I need to move a CMBE to another site. The IP address is going to change. Are there any things I should watch out for or any special procedures I need to follow?
Hi Rick, the main consideration is changing the server configuration IP address before changing the Network IP.
Here is a section from the release notes about changing the Server configuration IP:-
Updating the IP Address in the Server Configuration Window
Before you change the IP address of a server in the Server Configuration window in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, consider the following information:
â¢Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration does not prevent you from updating the IP Address field under any circumstances.
â¢When you attempt to change the IP address in the Server Configuration window, the following message displays after you save the configuration: "Changing the host name/IP Address of the server may cause problems with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Are you sure that you want to continue?" Before you click OK, make sure that you understand the implications of updating this field; for example, updating this setting incorrectly may cause Cisco Unified Communications Manager to become inoperable; that is, the database may not work, you may not be able to access Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, and so on. In addition, updating this field without performing other related tasks may cause problems for Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
â¢For additional information on changing IP addresses for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, refer to the following URL:
Within this document there is URL link for changing the IP address on CUCM 5.x/6.x. As you are using CUCMBE not all of this will be relevant:-
Hope this helps.
