Re: Unity 4.1 to Unity Connection 7.0 migration

Hi Harry,

Yes, COBRAS for Unity 4.1 to UC 7.0 should move the passwords. Only Unity 7.0 to UC 7.0 is not supported (see **note below)

Data not backed up

To preserve space in the backup, greeting rules that are disabled (not active) are not backed up. During restore missing greetings are forced to disabled to preserve the same functionality as the system that was backed up.

If MWIs are not configured to operate on Unity then they are not included in the backup and the subscriber template settings for MWI are used when that subscriber is restored.

Password history, hack count or lock status. The passwords themselves, “must change” and such "are" preserved but no history or lock information is included.

**For Unity 7.0 restores into Connection 7.0, phone passwords will NOT be preserved. This is related to an SHA1 “salt” difference between the products which will not be addressed until the Connection 7.1 release.

Hope this helps!
