Presence 6 to 8 Upgrade

Unanswered Question

Hi


I am looking into upgrading 2 presence clusters from ver 6 to 8, prior to upgrading to callmanager 8.


The Presence 8 release notes say you have to do an interim upgrade to Presence 7 then 8, but the cisco.com/upgrade has a product 'CUP6-8.0-U-K9=', the description is 'Upgrade from CUP 6.0 to CUP 8.0 Base Software'.


Guess the question is does it do as it says on the tin or do you have to go to 7 first.


Thanks in Advance

Cheers

I'm not sure, but I guess it serves two purposes:


1. Entitlement, which entitle you to upgrade CUPS from version 6 to version 8.


2. Media, which MIGHT contain CUPS 7 and CUPS 8 installation discs.


You'd better check with a Cisco sales person.
