Dear All,


Anyone can help me out the exact procedure of  migrating the device licenses unit from one MCS server to another MCS server...


I have one MCS server with call manager 6.0 and registerd with 300 IP Phones but  i have scraped  this MCS server and bought new MCS server 7825 CM 8.0 with 1000 seats.


Somehow I came to know that we can use existing device licenses with new  server also. So anyone  can tell me how can i download existing licensing file from old MCS server and upload in new MCS server.


Thanks/regards

Mahavir

Hi


You can go to System/Licensing/License Upload, select each license and copy the contents into a file with the same name as listed there...


Then open a TAC case, send them the licenses, and explain that you want to rehost them.

Hi Mahavir,


I'll just add a note to the good tips from Aaron (+5 "A" - team)



Cisco Licensing is very,very good about re-homing these licenses when required. Just send an email to;


[email protected]


Something like this;


We recently aquired licenses tied to PAK xxxxxxxxxxx for our CUCM 6.x cluster. We have a License tied to MAC CCCDDDAAABBB and now require the license to be re-homed to our new server Publisher MAC AAABBBCCCDDD accordingly.


Here is the pertinent info;


End User Name - Bobmart.com

Legal Address

City,Country


Purchase Order Number - 111111

Sales Order Number - 2222333

Bill to ID - xxxxx

Ship to ID - xxxxxxxxx


Thanks in advance for all your help with this! Can you please email the new license to:


[email protected]



Hope this helps!

Rob
