cucm upgrade from 7.0.2 to 9.1

1 read the hw compatibility matrix, its onc CCO and has been posted at CSC thousands of times

2 read the upgrade guide for 9.x release youre going, along with the RNs

3 youll need to reach the licensing team

If youre a partner, go to the partner community, and read the drive to 9 information

Hi Nithin,

As suggsted by Mr. Jaime, u can refer the guides.

You can use the existing Harwdare for upgradation to Call manager

secondly, u can upgrade from 7.0.2 to Restricted 7.1(5b)SU6a and then, to Unrestricted version of, u need to install COP file ciscocm.refresh_upgrade_v1.2.cop.sgn

Lastly for licenses u can refer the discussion.

The only item not listed above is the hard drive size, which has to be 160+ GB for 9.x, otherwise as Aman said you're server meets the requirements for upgrading.
