My situation slightly different from what is posted here. I have a client that has CUCM 8.6.2 on VM..& would like to Upgrade to CUCM Ver 10.5. What is the steps & easiest route to do this upgrade? A little confused, with posts because this is not a migration but a simple Upgrade in VM environment.
You need to download License Count utility from cisco site.
- File Name
Run on PC from whre Publisher is reachable.the file would be a csv file consiting of CUCM MAC address, IP address,Installed DLU, Used DLU/ Unnused DLUs,user licenses of BASIC/Essential, UCL Enhanced , CUWL standard etc.
Login in Prime License Manager after successfully migrated from 8 to 10
Use the following procedure to generate a license request.
1 Log in to Cisco Prime License Manager.
2 From the Licenses > Fulfillment page, select Generate License Request from the drop-down list under
Other Fulfillment Options.
3 The License Request and Next Steps window appears. Copy the selected text to your clipboard or click
Save it to a file on your PC and send to [email protected] to get permanent licenses.
This is simpler than a migration. You can either do it manually or use PCD (prime collaboration deployment). Please refer to this video on how to use PCD.
You should ensure that you read the upgrade guide in detail. You may need to make changes to your virtual machines, hence read the guide thoroughly. You will also need to make changes to your vm network adapter.
Please refer to a similar thread below. It contains the links for the required documentation
Finally plan for your licenses. This is mentioned in the upgrade doc as well
