Anyone know if there is an upgrade path to take a CUCMBE (7.1.3) up to a full Call Manager?
I did read somwhere that the CUCMBE could be upgraded to a Publisher on the same server hardware.
If the server is supported for standalone CUCM you can use it, however there is no migration path to/from CUCMBE.
This means you need to do a fresh install on the HW.
The best thing you could do is to install the same CUCM version and use BAT to migrate as much info as possible.
If this helps, please rate
