Answered Question
Aug 11th, 2010

Hi,

I am trying to copy configuration from an old cucm 3.3 to new ver 7 call manager. Its a hosted site and i need only one site copied over. Whats the easiest way/tool to copy hundreds of RPs/TPs to 7?

Thanks for your help..

I have this problem too.

Well, the first question that comes to my mind is would it be more

beneficial to refresh the configuration altogether. Meaning, if you have a

cluster from 3.3 days it is bound to have some configs that need clean up.

There are also a lot of differences between 3.3 and 7x.

That being said, if it were me I would take the time to look at Bulk Import

options on 7x. I would then identify a proper record set format (csv

format) that is needed to satisfy the bulk import. Then I would use SQL

queries on the 3.3 system to get the core of that record set. Next,

normalize and clean/augment the data (via Excel for instance). Finally,

import the data.

That is an oversimplification of the process. There is no easy path here,

but the above approach would give the opportunity to clean up data sets.

HTH.

Regards,

Bill
