Just to add a note to the good tips from Jonathan (+5 "J")
This release facilitates hardware and license migration paths that allow customers who have outgrown the capacity on the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition platform to migrate to the standalone Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection products to enable scaling beyond 500 users. Please refer to the Ordering Guide, available with login to Cisco Partner Central, for more details.
Reusing the MCS-7828 After Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition
If you have installed Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition on an MCS-7828 server, and you decide that you need to migrate to separate Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection environments for increased scalability and capacity, you can reuse that MCS-7828 server to run Cisco Unified Communications Manager in a MCS-7825 cluster. Although you can reuse the server, you must reenter your data on the server manually. You must also obtain another server to run Cisco Unity Connection.
Note You cannot install Cisco Unified Communications Manager on an MCS-7828 server unless you have previously installed Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition.
To migrate from Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition to separate Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection environments, follow the steps in Table 1:

Sorry, meant to say us BAT, but was not sure if there was a documented path from Cisco. I have never seen and was always under the impression you have to forklift it all out and either import it in or create new.
