UCCX 8.0(2) upgrade to SU4

Answered Question
Jan 11th, 2012

Hi,

I'm planning an upgrade to SU4 on a HA cluster this weekend. I would like to kick off the software install this evening, and then switch versions over the weekends. The documentation isn't 100% clear on what will happen in this scenario.

I'm looking at this doc ... http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cust_contact/contact_center/crs/express_8_0/configuration/guide/uccx801osag.pdf

On page 46 (7-2) it states ... Data migration happens only when a switch version is done from a lower to the higher version; when the switch version is done from a higher to a lower version the data migration does not happen.

What Data is this referring to exactly? Historical data only?

On the next page it states .... The administrator must not make any configuration changes to Cisco Unified CCX during an upgrade. Configuration changes include any changes that you make in Cisco Unified CCX Administration, Cisco Unified CCX Serviceability, and the User Option windows.

So, if I upload the software tonight, am I correct in thinking that when I switch versions at the weekend, historical data will be carried over and any configuration changes (reskilling, new agents, new csqs etc) will be lost ?

Also, has anyone any comments on the SU4 upgrade in a HA cluster? If you've upgraded, how did you get on?

SU3 gave us many different problems, hopefully SU4 will be smoother.

Regards,

Brian

I have this problem too.

It refers to all data, basically if you do the upgrade but not switch for few days all new configuration and historical data will be lost after you perform the switch.

HTH,

Thanks Chris, I'll hold off and do the upgrade and switch version in the same maintenance period.

TAC advised an upgrade for a couple of issues we were having. Most importantly the telephony subsystem was going in to partial service CSCtq61132 .

What kind of issues did you experience?

It went well. Took about 4 hours to do a HA cluster of a very busy contact centre. No surprises.

We were hitting quite a few bugs in su3. Most of them appear to be resolved.... so far anyway. : )

Hi Brian,

I am looking at upgrading one of my customers from 8.0(2) to 8.0(2) SU4.

I was wondering if you know if this upgrade also required an update to the clients or not?

Many thanks in advance,

Kiarash

Yes, supervisor and agent desktops need to be upgraded. The historical reporting client will also need to be upgraded (manually).

CAD and CSD upgraded automatically on local installs. Where CAD was installed on citrix I ran the auto updater manually.

Thanks very much Brian, I really appreciate it.

I presume that the clients would have required local Admin rights to upgrade the clients automatically.

brian1mcc Thu, 01/26/2012 - 04:29

Yes - I logged in as a local admin, updated the clients, then logged out again.

Does anyone know if a CAD upgrade is required from SU3 to SU4?

Thanks!
