Hey (is it Dave?? I'm sorry I've forgotton)

Long time, hope all is well!

From Unity 4.0(5) and later

Migrating from Cisco Unity 4.x or Later to Cisco Unity Connection 7.x

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/7x/upgrade/guide/7xcucrug022.html

Here is the COBRAS Compatibility;

Unity Export works with Unity 4.0(5), 4.1(x), 4.2(x), 5.0(x), and 7.0(x) with Exchange or Domino.

Connection 1.2 Export is only 1.2, no 1.1 support.

Connection 7.0 Export works with any version of 7.0(1) or later, however for message extraction to work 7.0(2) is required.

Any Unity export can be imported on any Unity version running with Exchange that's the same version of Unity or later.

**Any Unity export of any version can also be imported onto Connection 7.0.  A Connection export, however, can NOT be imported into any version of Unity.  See the help for more details

NOTE: there will be no import or export for Unity Connection 2.0 or 2.1 since the off box access necessary for these tools was not present in those releases.

NOTE: Imports onto Connection 7.x and later are only supported for stand alone installations, no support for co-resident installs (Business Edition).  You can export from a co-resident install, but not import.

NOTE: No imports onto Domino based Unity systems are supported and there are no plans to support this moving forward.

Interview Handlers (a.k.a. Interviewers)

Public Distribution Lists (optionally including membership information)

Schedules

Routing rules (for restores onto Unity servers only)

COBRAS Does Not Get:

Locations

Contacts (includes SMTP/AMIS/Bridge/VPIM subscribers)

Holidays

System configuration data such as switch configuration, LDAP integration details, IMAP login data, RSA configuration, advanced settings etc..

Subscriber templates

Password policy information

Secure (encrypted) messages.  If you've selected to backup messages for subscribers on Unity, secure messages will not be included. If only part of the message is secure (such as a forwarded message with introduction) then that message part will not be playable when restored to another server.

Hey Dave,

You are always welcome my friend!

Sadly, yes you will need to go to 4.0(5) first but then you would be

good to go! It will be worth the extra step.

Cheers!

Rob
