I am doing a upgrade from CUCMv7 to CUCM8. I have restored the configuration version 7 through DRS, and was sucessfull.
So, I installed the upgrade file in the server to install the CUCMv8, and was installed. Now I have in the CUCMv7 in the active partition and CUCMv8 in the inactive partition, but when I select Switch Version, and I have this message:
"error: Switch version disallowed during Licensing Grace Period Failed to Switch Version and Restart the Appliance"
CSCtb86875 - Upgrades are prohibited during License Grace Period
Symptom:After Disaster Recovery System (DRS) backup is done on the old server, we DRS restore all the data into the newly replaced server. The license file for old server is valid for 30 days.During license grace period, you can not proceed due to the upgrade error message "Upgradeds are prohibited during License Grace Period".Conditions:It only occurs after DRS backup and restore data to newly replaced servers.One example of an erroneous document:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/install/7_1_2/cluster/clstr712.html#wp87717The problem is steps 7-9. The order should be:7. install the same version8. restore the DRS backup9. upload the new license fileWorkaround:If license is uploaded before DRS restore then use the following steps to correct the state of licensing on the system:1. Remove the rehosted (new) license files using cli commond "file delete xxx.lic"2. Restart license manager.3. Re-upload the rehosted (new) license files.
Do you remember how TAC solved this problem? I got the same issue, and this was my process. I'm upgrading from 188.8.131.5200-12 on MCS to 8.6 on UCS.
1. DRS backup production 184.108.40.20600-12 on MCS
2. Install 220.127.116.1100-12 on a VM. Yes, I get that it's not supported, but it should still work. I've done numerous upgrade from 4.x to 7.x on a VM to 8.x, and it always worked.
3. DRS restore
4. Now trying to upgrade to 8.6 and getting this error "Upgrades are prohibited during Licensing Grace Period"
It's gotta to be some simple trick with license files that could fix this. I tried installing rehosted NODE/PHONE license to the license mac, that didn't help. I tried removing all licenses, that also didn't help.
