This video describes the concept of how PCD performs the migration of legacy CUCM cluster to CUCM ver 10.x running on virtualized platform
It seems to be a killer tool..nice....saved life from "partition unaligned error" issue and really it makes the migration simple !!!
Indeed, I was amazed myself when I first tested it myself.
I've couple of queries regarding PCD..
1. Do we need to assign IP address to PCD ?
2. How can we get the PCD tool, I mean is it downloadable or it comes with CUCM ISO CD ?
Just I want to understand the prerequisites for this tool other than hardware specifications.
I am unable to find the link where I can click and view this Video.
Im not sure if you are facing a browser issue but you could just click on the video itself & view the video. I just tested it again & it works for me.
I have responded to your question in my blog below
I checked on Chrome and Firefox and was not working.
It is working on IE.thanks.
Seems to be issue with the browser only. Just righ-click and press "Reload" the script on the browser and then check the address bar shield sign. It works.
What I can learn from the video that we do not need to refer software compatibility matrix anymore while doing upgrdae from 6, 7, 8 , 9 to 10.X if we use PCD? Please confirm.
We are upgrading CM 188.8.131.52900-4 to 10.5 using PCD. When I'm discovering the cluster using "discover cluster", Its shown as "cluster discovery is completed, but with errors". I'm also attaching the screenshot. Kindly let me know why this timeout error is coming.
I'm trying to migrate from 6.1.5 to 10.x and can't get past "Add EXSi Host". Error is "Failed to mount Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployments export as NFS store to the EXSi Host".
How do you get past the error...
let me check and get back to you on how you enable NFS in ESXi. PCD uses NFS to transfer the ISO to boot the VMs.
Have you figured this out?
No, tac has been unable to make it work. We have a MCS7828H3-K9-BE with 6.1.5 and am told by tac it won't work with this hardware/software. I've had a case open since 10/27/14 on the issue and am on the third tac person and still no resolution and haven't been able to upgrade hardware/software.
PCD uses ESXi features that are not licensed in Cisco version of ESXi. However, to run a migration task and then decommission the PCD server all you have to do is switch the ESXi host to the Evaluation license mode with will enable all ESXi features. Once the migration is complete you can re-install the cisco restricted licenses as the additional services are only needed during the migration with PCD.
Did you had a chance to resolve the issue? We have same timeout issue for one of the CUPS node in the cluster. Any help would be appreciated.
