I am upgrading from Callmanager 4.2 – 7.1 and will be installing new IBM 7825 I5 servers. (Customer will be upgrading to 8.5 later this year)
Unfortunately the server was shipped with CCM 8.5 and the software sent with the licence (7.1(5b)) will not install on the Servers.
The error I am getting during the start of build is that I am prompted to select where the device packages I am installing located; if I select CDROM , I am then prompted for Drivers at this point what eve I select the Install fails. There is an option for specify optinonal module arguments
Please could I have assistance on this install
This is failing because the -I5 models are not supported (i.e. the installer does not have the hardware drivers) for any release prior to 8.5(1). This is clearly documented in the Supported Servers for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Releases. You will not be able to use this hardware until you upgrade to the 8.5 release.
