Being asked by the Cisco upgrade process to download a two part iso file and burn it to a single DVD. Working in a secure area my employer is not happy for me to use un-approved "downloaded of the net" s/w.

Hi Chris,


Here is an example of what is recommended by Cisco;


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.
