Hi,


I have a cluster ( Publisher + Subscriber) version 7.1.3 then i upgrade the complete cluster to 7.1.3aSU1,

i want to add a new subscriber to the cluster. i used the same DVD which i upgrade the old servers but it didn't boot in the new server. Note that i am using the same MCS 7845 I2


i download from Cisco.com the same files which is (UCSInstall_UCOS_7.1.3.21900-4.sgn(1).iso_part1of2 and UCSInstall_UCOS_7.1.3.21900-4.sgn(1).iso_part1of2+UCSInstall_UCOS_7.1.3.21900-4.sgn.iso_part2of2, then in windows command line i merge it to one file then i burn it thru NERO as BOOTABLE DVD but also its not working, any advise regards this issue.

i am not so sure that is a bootable ISO image. I think that is only a patch. You will have to install from some earlier version of CUCM then apply the patch you just downloaded to it.

Yes you will have to find the DVD that is bootable then upgrade with the patch. Keep this in mind though, if you go into your "Cisco Unified OS Administration" through the gui, go to "Settings" then "Version". Double check your Active versoin vs your Inactive version. You will want those to match your new server with the same versions that show in your production servers. This would be in case you ever needed to revert back to a previous version in case you ran into some sort of bug.


So install CUCM if you have the ISO image/DVD with say, 7.1.3 if you have that. Then upgrade to the version that shows as "Inactive" on your publisher, then upgrade to the version that shows "Active" on your publisher. Make sense?

Great advice about matching both inactive and active CUCM versions (rated)!

Im not sure if you were asking me a question or not. But you are spot on with installing 7.1.3 then upgrading to 7.1.3aSU1 to match your production servers' Active and Inactive partitions. Good luck!

Hi


Firstly I'm assuming that you typed your version wrong, and that the version you are loading is 7.1.3.10000-11, not 7.1.3.1000-11.


What the other posters suggested was that you boot from the 7.1.3.10000-11 bootable DVD. It will ask if you want to install a patch as part of the installation, and at that point you should point the installation at your 7.1.3.21900-4 downloaded ISO. You can do this via SFTP or burn it to DVD.


Regards


Aaron
