I am doing a fresh install of a CUCM pub sub. The version is 8. Cisco sent a DVD with 8.0.1 version of CUCM installation software. The cisco servers probably had a pre loaded installation software with version 8.0.2. Somehow after I started installing the Pub, it installed the 22.214.171.124000-1 version, totally ignoring the 126.96.36.19900-26 on the DVD. Once I finished with the Pub and started installing the Sub, after the first node access configuration there was an error which said the version on Pub does not match the one on Sub. I guess the DVD erased the partition on the Sub which had the 188.8.131.52000-1 on it and went ahead with installing 184.108.40.20600-26
How do I rectify this? Should I reinstall the Pub with 220.127.116.1100-26 and follow suit on the Sub? Or should I download 18.104.22.168000-1 from the Cisco support and try installing 8.0.2 on the Sub? My question is since the Sub is a blank server with nothing on it, how would I be able to tftp into it from the Pub's CLI and push the 8.0.2 iso? Cisco does not upload bootable iso files and at the same time does not recommend converting non bootable to bootable files. Hence the solution of downloading non bootable 8.0.2 iso files and converting into a bootable DVD and installing is out of question.
Cisco rep suggested I install 8.0.3. Can I just download 8.0.3, burn a DVD (he said its bootable file) and pop it into the server and commence installation?
Thanks, appreciate your help.
