CUCM Database Migration

Hi all,

I need to upgrade a CUCM from 5.1.2a to 7.1.5SU4 on 7845-I1 servers, on my lab i have a spare box to test the upgrade path. I'm using the folowing procedure in the lab, but for same reason i get always a failure:

1- I have take a backup from the production server cluster

2- I have instaled release 5.1.2a on my lab server (without node and device licences  )

3- I have made a restore wit success  (in the licence unit report i get -2 node licences and - 1000 devices units)

4- I uprade to 5.1.3b without success, at the end of the upgrade i get the following error :

Since i dont have the licences for the lab server is this a valid procedure to test the database upgrade ?

That doesn't seem to be a valid upgrade, 5.1(3) is the minimum you need.
