Unity 5.x to Unity Connection 7.x ?

Answered Question

Guys,

Here is the situation I want to migrate (some how) from Unity 5.0(1.0) to Unity Connection 7.x. I have 2 Unity boxes.

The thing is I have 173 Call Handlers on 1 box and 291 Call Handlers on the other.

Furthermore, with my Unity setup many of the nuances of the product are used to the fullest. For example, Alternate extensions and call forwarding to cell phones and on and on.

Does anyone know if there is a direct migration tool for this purpose?

I think I know the answer, but just wanted to check. I think all my Call Handlers will have to be re created on the Unity Connection Linux BOX.

Thanks, Tom

I have this problem too.

Aaron is correct.  You can use COBRAS and you can merge data from multiple systems via multiple exports/imports to accomplish this.  So, not an issue.  Here is a pretty in-depth presentation I put together on migrating from Unity to Unity Connection.  http://www.netcraftsmen.net/user-group/c-mug-archive/824-cisco-unity-connection-migration.html

As always refer to ciscounitytools.com for the COBRAS Help File as a definitive info source.

Hi

There is a tool called COBRAS - you can use this to export 'most things' from the two Unity servers and shoe-horn them into your single new CUC server.

I would build the CUC server, and then do a few dummy runs to make sure you understand the tool and what it can and can't do.
