I was thinking I'd get a new thread started regarding my rollout of CUCM 7.1. We are doing a fresh install on some new hardware where we will migrate the 4.1 users over to the new CUCM 7.1 version. Has anyone done this before? Any gotchas you could share? I am in the early stages and reading about the DMA tool. Is that just for upgrades or can I migrate that data to a new box?
So far my only gotchya has been the ordering of hardware. As I understand it, Cisco will no longer support HP hardware after version 7. So we investigated buying the Cisco supported IBM servers. That was painful, because we only need 1U's and the supported processor type for the IBM 3250 does not appear to be manufactured anymore. I submitted a TAC case, but they said Cisco only supports what was on their site, that being the outdated CPU. We ended up buying the supported HP servers and counting on version 8+ being supported on VMware.
