I have a production network of CUCM 5.0 & UCCX 5.0 running well. As you know, they are so old, so I decided to buy two BE6k servers running CUCM & UCCX 9.x to replace the 5.0 system. During the replacement, I don't want migrate the old system to any new versions, for easy fallback and risk control. I simplely need some way to copy data from 5.0 system to 9.x system, and have 9.x system running exactly same as original 5.0 system.I also buyed appropriate licenses for 9.x system.
I suppose there are two way to accomplish this:
(1) Confige the CUCM & UCCX 9.x page by page, same as CUCM 5.0 and UCCX 5.0. Of course, this method is a little labor intensive. But the problems arise, How can I migrate the dynamic data from 5.0 system to 9.x system, such as CDR & CMR in CUCM, and CCDR in UCCX? Because I want copy everything from 5.0 sytem to 9.x system, and keep the two system exactly the same.
(2) Using some data Migration tools. My question is, when I backup data of 5.0 system, Can I restore the data in 9.x system directly. For CUCM 5.0 and 9.x, maybe it's feasible, because they are all linux OS, . But for UCCX, 5.0 is windows OS, and 9.x is Linux OS. Maybe I need intermeidate system, such 7.0(2). But when I installed 7.0(2) system on another server, ( don't forget I want keep 5.0 system) and backup 5.0 system, and then restore data on 7.0(2) system. I wonder is there any license issue which render restore fail because I don't have any license for 7.0(2) server. And for CUCM 5.0, I oringinally have two nodes forming a cluster, and this makes things more complicated.
hope some good suggestions.
