Upgrade from 5.1(3) to 7.1

Unanswered Question
Dec 28th, 2009

Hello.

We are currently on CM 5.1(3) and looking to go to 7.1. We use two HP DL380-G5 servers. We don't have any UCSS contracts for UCM. There is no server replacement - 7.1 replace 5.1 on the same server.


It is my understanding that I need to buy:

1 media kit x CM7.1-K9-380G5 (SW Only, Unified CM 7.1 For HP DL380-G5) and

2 node license to activate the new features - LIC-CM7.1-7835 (License Unified CM 7.1 7835 Appliance)


Is this correct? Or am I mistaken?

Thanks!

Hi AS,


Yes, you are on the right track here



As far as Licensing goes,this upgrade also requires the Software Feature License.




Here is a clip that speaks to this issue;




Software Feature License




When you upgrade from an earlier release of Cisco Unified Communications Manager to Release 7.0(2), you must download and install a software feature license to activate the new features. This applies to CUCM 7.1 as well

***You should receive a PAK with the 7.x Upgrade Media***






Use this procedure to obtain a software feature license:




Procedure






--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Step 1 Navigate to the License Registration web tool at http://www.cisco.com/go/license.




Step 2 Enter the Product Authorization Key (PAK) that you received with your Cisco Unified Communications Manager upgrade.




Step 3 Click Submit.




Step 4 Follow the system prompts. You must enter the MAC address of the Ethernet 0 NIC of the first node of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager cluster. You must also enter a valid e-mail address.




The system sends the license file to you via e-mail by using the e-mail address that you provided. To view the contents of a software feature license, refer to "License File Contents" in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager System Guide.




Step 5 You must upload the software license file to the server with the matching MAC address that you provided in Step 4.

Here is a clip from a CCM Ordering Guide



"A license must be ordered for each server in a Unified Communications Manager cluster irrespective of server function (e.g. MOH, TFTP, warm standby server, etc). **This would be the "node" license. So you need two node licenses



It would look something like this;


1x CM7.1-K9-DL380


2x LIC-CM7.1-7835= these are the "Node" licenses



Hope this helps!
