Unity 5.0: Programmatic CoS Modification

Answered Question
Aug 3rd, 2009

Unity 5.0(1), failover, CUCM 6.1(3), EX2k3, UM.

I am migrating subscribers from an existing 4.2 pair to a new 5.0 pair using GSM. The CoS from the subscriber template doesn't get paid attention to by GSM, and Bulk Edit doesn't touch the CoS. Does anyone have the SQL commands to programmatically modify subscribers? I have 1500 to change, so the manual process isn't an option. If direct modification of SQL isn't the answer, then what is?

Thanks,

Beau

I have this problem too.

the COS page lets you change which COS users are assigned to pretty quickly - you don't have to change it on the subscriber page one at a time... changing COS assingment via SQL edits is a very tricky with the license count modification checks necessary to keep the system from potentially going out of compliance and into a shutdown mode - you don't want that (this is why BulkEdit doesn't go anywhere near it). The COS page in the SA is designed to make it a bit easier to change groups of users to new COS (i.e. all users in COS x can be moved to COS y) using the "reassign" radio button option - it should let you mass select users clicking on as many as you want. Not quite as robust as picking users by extension or alias string sub match etc... but quicker than one at a time certainly.
