CUCM Business Edition 6.1 (7828) upgrade to CUCMBE6K

Answered Question

Hi all,


we´re currently upgrading a CUCM 6.1 BE on a 7828 to CUCMBE6K.


I´m wondering how we get the unity connection part to a separate server...?

In fact that drs can only restore to the same ip/hostname, do i have to make 2 separate backups?


My plan was to do these steps:


1. Upgrade 6.1.1a to 6.1.3

2. Upgrade 61.3 to 8.0.3

3. Restore CUCM Backup to 8.0.3 in VMWare

4. Upgrade the 8.0.3 CUCM to 8.6.x


And now with Unity Connection?

5. Change the old servers IP/Hostname and do a second backup?

6. Restore to UXCN 8.03

7. Upgrade to 8.6.x


Or do i have to use the COBRAS and export/import the users/prompts?

Will i use any information with COBRAS?


Thanks for any help.

You can use COBRAS to get most data out of Connection.

You cannot use DRS restores when growing beyond the BE5k install you have. You will need to do a fresh build on the BE6k deployment. BAT Exports and Imports may save you some time but will require CSV column manipulation to get it in-line with what BAT 8.6 is expecting.

If you have installed Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 5000 on an MCS-7828 server, and you decide that you need to migrate to separate Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection environments for increased scalability and capacity, you can reuse that MCS-7828 server to run Cisco Unified Communications Manager in a MCS-7825 cluster. Although you can reuse the server, you must reenter your data on the server manually. You must also obtain another server to run Cisco Unity Connection.

Jonathan,


Adding to post since subject line matches my question. I need to migrate from CUCMBE 6.1(2) with Unity Connection on MCS7828H3 server to CBE6K 9.x residing on UCS C220 (VM VSphere 5). I have been researching many docs to apply correct procedure. Can you please provide your suggested path with least amount of DRS/DMA intermissions..?


Also, should I order UCS C220 with CBE6K 9.x release, or with earlier release (8.5(x)) and then final upgrade to 9.x on UCS220..?


Thank you,


Doug Smith
