please clarify , I have a Customer using 8.6.2 in Virtulized environment, the initial deployment of 8.6.2 was not done by using ova's, so if i do refresh upgrade, i think it will result into "ERROR-UNSUPPORTED" Partition Unaligned....
The Question is can i deploy new 10.x Ova's for CUCM-PUB,CUCM-SUB1,CUCM-SUB2 and CUP-SUB and use PCD to do migration from Old Cluster to New Cluster with same IP Address and Host names, is Customer eligible to have new Images of 10.x or he will get only upgrade images which can't be used to migrate?
If i am doing migration by deploying ISO images in Fresh_install directory of PCD, can i use the same upgrade images which i downloaded using PUT for upgrade.
The customer has all UCSS Contract and ESW Contract
Thank you for the clarification on those points. Much appreciated.
A few notes about Anthony's post:
2. Actually, if you build a migration task in PCD to upgrade from 8.6.2 to 10.x, the 1st item in the migration task is to shutdown the source node and install the destination node. When you build the Migration Task, you choose a Simple Migration, meaning that you plan to keep all the same networking info, including IP Addresses.
4. If you migrate from 8.6.2 to 10.x, you will do a migration task, and this will look for IOS files in the fresh_install folder
5. You can get the Bootable ISO files if you get the images through Cisco PUT
