Migrate Cisco Unity Connections to UCS

Good Morning,

   Just wondering if there is a document that outlines the steps for migrating a Unity Connection Bare Metal install (8.6) to UCS virtualized environment.

Is the migration path as simple as deploying teh OVA template in the UCS environment, installing the smae version and then doing a DRS restore?

Any best practice or lessons learned from users who ahve previously gone through this?

We have a publisher and a Subscriber in seperate Data Centres, going to migrate the publisher first to our UCS deployment in Data centre A, then another night we will migrate the subscriber in DC B.

Thanks

In terms of the actual install, the process is that simple. Deploy OVA Templates, install same version of unity connection and then restore your back up.

Others may have more to add....

You might also use COBRAS and that removes the need to have the same version, IP, hostname, etc.

Since you're already on supported version on ESXi, DRS is also a nice option, and that will take everything you have.

Thanks for the very fast replies.

Once the DRS backup is taken, a freeze on administrative changes is implemented. What happens to messages received during the downtime? will the DB sync from the Sub to the pub?

Thanks

You can use COBRAS to get those few messages that won't be in the backup into the UCS CUC.

Re:Migrate Cisco Unity Connections to UCS

The rule of thumb is whatever is not in your backup is lost. I believe that applies to messages as well.
