I am doing an upgrade from CUCm 4.1.3 to 7.1.3 and have attempted to install DMA, but the installation fails pretty quickly with an error saying that DMA cannot install as *installdb* is not found. I did not do the original install and cannot find any logs re: installdb that DMA is looking for.
Anyone seen this error and does anyone have any suggestions.
There are no other error messages, so I suspect that I may have missed a step.
The installdb operation that you see fail in this output is the most common source of failed DMA backups.
Finally, the installdb process generates a log in the DBL trace folder called installdbw1.log. This file is located in C:\Program Files\Cisco\Trace\DBL\installdbw1.log.
In this log, search from the top down for the keyword *Error*.
Note: The asterisks that surround the word Error are very important. In DMA, if a line simply has "Error" without the asterisks, it is non-critical and can be ignored. You also see *Warnings* which can also be ignored.
The reason for the top down search is that errors at the bottom of the trace are most likely caused by an error occurrence earlier on. In Example 1, look at the first line that says *Error* and see that the DMA failed insert into the Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) Database for Cisco CallManager 5.0.
Example 1 - Unspecified System Error = -239 on Informix db Insert
Note the error number on the last line. This number is important because it helps you resolve the problem. You can see the DN or Pattern that has the issue in the bold font. In this case, it is a duplicate voicemail pilot number that was created during an upgrade from Cisco CallManager 3.3(5) to CallManager 4.1(3). It is also important to note that this problem was only found after looking in the Cisco CallManager Admin pages for directory number (DN) 1131. These error messages can give some tips on where to look for the problem, but many times, they do not indicate the exact problem directly.
My apologies, I assume that is was the DMA which had failed not the acutall installation, my bad!!
I just verified that according to the compatibility matrix a direct upgrade from 4.1.3 through DMA to 7.1.3b is definitely supported, so that can't be the issue. Once other matter which was touch upon in a previous post was the CSA agent, and that in some cases you may have to uninstall the CSA before you can run DMA. Did you simply disable CSA or have you removed it?
Hey no sweat, thanks for the assistance... This should not be this difficult ... but ths being a old military install anything could be going on and this is my 1st crack at DMA.
I tried disabling it first and that did not help so I removed it and got the same result. The version of CSA is 4.0 I believe (not onsite right now) but according to the matrix I should not have to disable it, but did so anyway.
This is quite troubling as there is no documentation for this error and when i sent it to Cisco they too said that they want additional info which is not available.
I also renamed the Administrator account back to Administrator and then logged in again using Administrator with Administrator privileges and I am performing these tasks on the CallManager.
I would like to back up and restore CUCM 4.1.3 to a non production box but the 4.1.3 software has gone missing so this is all that I have, which certainly is not an ideal situation.
