Call manager/Unity upgrade from 7.1.3 to 8.6(2a)

Ali,

You will have to READ the 8.6.2A release notes.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/rel_notes/8_6_2/cucm-rel_notes-862a.html#wp2058416

According to the CUCM software upgrade matrix you can go directly from 7.1.3 to 8.6.2a so long as your hardware suports the upgrade.

Alex.

Re: Call manager/Unity upgrade from 7.1.3 to 8.6(2a)

Hi Ali,

The upgrade from 7.1(3) to 8.6(2a) is a direct upgrade path as shown;

Check out Table 4:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/compat/ccmcompmatr1.pdf

So you won't have to run a multiple hop upgrade, but the move to 8.6 does incorporate

a new "Refresh" upgrade portion (see below)

You will have to determine what version you current servers will support this is the "master" list for Server support;

Check out this great doc from Saurabh for the refresh upgrade notes for the final step to 8.6.

This Refresh Upgrade will also apply to your CUCM 8.6 final step;
