CUCM upgrade from 7.1(5) to 8.x

Could I upgrade from 7.1(5) to 8.x?

I couldn't make clear by CUCM software compatibility Matrix.

Re: CUCM upgrade from 7.1(5) to 8.x

No; 7.1(5) was tested and released after both 8.0(1) and 8.0(2). You will need to wait for a subsiquant 8.0 release to perform this upgrade.

This will be indicated in Table 4 because 7.1(5) will then be listed as a Direct Upgrade in the table for that release. Sorry to hear this wasn't clear.

Re: CUCM upgrade from 7.1(5) to 8.x

Cisco builds different "tracks" (or "trains") of software in parallel.

Maybe not a good analogy, but think CUCM 7.x is "Office 2007" and CUCM 8.x is "Office 2010".

CUCM 7.1.5 is like "the latest service pack for Office 2007".  CUCM 8.0.1 is the very first version of "Office 2010".

There's no need to "upgrade" CUCM 7.x to 8.x unless you want the "new features".  Just like there's no point to upgrade Office 2007 SP2 to Office 2010 unless you want the "new features".

Hope this helps!

You will be able to upgrade but not until 8.5(1) ,which a lot of people is expecting for Windows 7 compatibility, is finally released. Q4FY10 is the FCS for this release.

Re: CUCM upgrade from 7.1(5) to 8.x

Hi,

You can upgrade in one hop to 8.5 or 8.6.

I know this for sure, because 7.1.5 is the only version with DMA... So if you have a 4.x version, you go to 7.1.5 with DMA and then you're going to 8.5 or 8.6.

Hi,

Here is the install and upgrade guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/install/8_5_1/install/cmins851.html

And the link to the software:

http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/type.html?mdfid=283423434&catid=278875240

You need a CCO login and a valid ESW (service contract) to download.

Cheers

Steffen
