Unity Connection Upgrade slow

Hello all,

We have Unity Connection 7.1.3 on UCS & we are upgrading to 10.5.

We are uploading .sgn.iso file via FreeSFTPD (sftp) & its taking too long to upload around 2hour to 3hour just to upload 3.5 GB file. All ports are on same switch & switch has gigabit ports.

I burn iso file into DVD but i don't know how to locate DVD in UCS for unity connection. I tried put DVD in my laptop it didn't detected then i tried connect external DVD to UCS Server (using USB port) that also didnt detected.

Any idea how to upload the file fast.

Second, for upgrade, first system upload the file & then it start upgrade process.

We were able to upload the file successfully but for some reason our upgrade didn't successful, it stopped in middle & we had to start the process from start again ( 1st upload (which takes 2 to 3 hours just for upload) then 1.5 hours to complete upgrade)

Is there a way if a file is already uploaded into system, we can use it again instead of uploading the same file again.

Regards,

You can upload the CUCM ISO

You can upload the CUC ISO image using ESXi, just login through ESXi Client and click on management IP (ESXi) and click “configuration” and then click storage, one row will be displayed right click on that and click “browse database” and create folder and upload ISO file to that folder, it will take 15-20 minutes.

+5 for Suresh, simply upload the file to local datastore and then perform the upgrade using local storage vs. sftp.

You first need to mount the

You first need to mount the DVD/CD to the ISO on the datastore in sphere client under the UCXN virtual machine, make sure you set it to be "connected" and then you should be able to see it as local image when you attempt the upgrade.

Hi coniesaga,

Once you have mounted ISO to VM, On OS Administration Page  you have to select source as "DVD/CD" then click Next.
