I need some help in understanding what is required to deploy Cisco EIM/WIM v4.2(5) for Cisco UCCE.
a) media kit received contained v4.2(1), 3rd party tools, v4.2(4a) SR & v4.2(5a) MR
b) based on the docs, v4.2(1) needs to be installed first followed by v4.2(4a) SR and then v4.2(5a) MR
Some concerns/questions i have is
a) Since v4.2(1) only supports SQL 2000 and v4.2(5) only supports SQL 2005, does that mean i'll require to purchase both SQL 2000 & SQL 2005? Can I install v.4.2(1) directly on SQL 2005?
b) Since v4.2(1) only supports BEA WebLogic, is there a way to change it to JBoss when upgrading to v4.2(5)? If so, any idea how that can be done? If not mistaken this is possible when upgrading to v4.3(1).
c) Is there a way to directly install v4.2(5) without going to the mentioned upgrade path
That is great news!! You should probably mark the post to resolved if it fixed your issue.
Yeah i have had problems doing that before. It should work if you just run the test on a seperate PC. You can only ever log into single instance of CIM at any one time on a PC. Have you tried running it on a two seperate PCs?
I believe for the port requirements i am pretty sure that is in the SRND or the Install guide. Have you checked that?
I am affraid your going to have more luck just reinstalling the thing than trying to down grade from experience. Also as you said your issue is pointing to Weblogic and Java. You can always install that again with out have to reinstall CIM. The JDK needs to be on the services server not the database server.
Have you spoken to TAC again about this?
Also is this a production enviroment because you should actually have a 3rd server for the web server component which should be in front of the firewall.
There is currently no way to directly upgrade to 4.2(5) and 4.2(1) does not support SQL 2005 you need to go through a 3 phased upgrade. You will need to do the following:
Install 4.2(1) with SQL 2000
Upgrade 4.2(1) to 4.2(4)
You then need to do the following to get it to 4.2(5)
Backup Active, Master and Archive Databases
Unistall SQL 2000
Delete any Every thing to do with SQL 2000 that may be left over
Install SQL 2005 with SP2
Install New Weblogic 9.2
Restore DBs you backed up to SQL 2005
Run the dbupgrade tool. (This is on the 4.2(5) CD and DO NOT USE the 4.2.4 dbupgrade wizard)
You can then run the 4.2.5 upgrade patch.
I have done this a number of times and can say it is a bit of a nightmare :-(. There are a number of ESs you should apply when you get to 4.2.5. I believe your need ES1-5 but it depends what features your using. You can just open a TAC case for that and they will tell you which ones you need.
In regards to the SQL purchase you will need to get a copy of both versions. I would not buy a copy of 2000 as you only need it temporary. You will need a license for 2005 though.
If this is a new installation i would recommend just waiting for CIM 4.3 it is much better product and uses JBoss as standard. Also if you are intergrating this with UCCE 7.5 then it is only supported with 4.3
