Hi All

I want to upgrade my cucm 6.1(2) to 6.1(3) i have downloaded two very large files with .iso_part1of2 extensions. Do i need to remove the extension from the file and leave just .iso ?

i looked for support documentation but cant find anything useful other than telling me to create a ISO DVD for the uprade which failed when i tried (im using Nero)

any help appreciated

regards

Colin

Hi Colin,


At the end of the day, I believe the file should look like this;


UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso


Upgrading From Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(1x) or higher to Release 6.1(3) by Using the UCSInstall File


Because of its size, the UCSInstall iso file, UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso, comprises two parts:


•UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part1of2

•UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part2of2


Procedure


Step 1From www.cisco.com, download the two UCSInstall files.


Step 2Execute one of the following commands to reunite the two parts of the file.


NoteThe 6.1.3.1000-16 build represents a non-bootable ISO that is only useful for upgrades. You cannot use it for new installations.


a.If you have a Unix/Linux system, cut and paste the following command from this document into the CLI to combine the two parts:


cat UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part1of2 UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part2of2 > UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso


b.If you have a Windows system, cut and paste the following command from this document into the command prompt (cmd.exe) to combine the two parts:


COPY /B UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part1of2+UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso_part2of2 UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.3.1000-16.sgn.iso


Step 3Use an md5sum utility to verify that the MD5 sum of the final file is correct.

Hope this helps!
