I have a customer with a business edition. They want to move from that to a full UCM. The technical process is not really an issue, but from a licensing perspective I'd like confirmation or shared experience.
Can I just use the 9+3 promotion for both the UCM and CUC users and buy new hardware to do this?
We have not done this migration, but here are two docs that indicate "full" support
for License migration
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 7:
For More Information
Order a single migration SKU (CUCM-BE-MIG). The migration SKU ships with software install media that is required to install Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection. The SKU provides a node license for the Cisco Unified Communications Manager and enables you to migrate the DLUs to Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
For ordering information, refer to the Cisco Unified Communications Solutions Ordering Guide. To access the guide, go to www.cisco.com/go/unified-techinfo, choose the appropriate solution release version, choose the Resource Library tab, choose the Ordering Guides link, and choose Ordering Guide Cisco Unified Communications Management Solutions.
Rehost all device licenses in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager environment by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include the MAC address and proof of purchase of your devices.
Obtain a new server for Cisco Unity Connection.
Rehost all voice-messaging and advanced user licenses by sending an email to email@example.com. You must include the MAC address and proof of purchase of the server on which you plan to install Cisco Unity Connection.
Install Cisco Unified Communications Manager on the MCS-7828 server.
Make sure to read this document and the related release notes before beginning the installation.
The Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition offering is for new installations only. However, a migration path is supported that provides investment protection to a standalone enterprise-class deployment of Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Unity Connection for a business that grows beyond the 500-user capacity of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition.
Thanks for this Rob, I've seen that article already, but the CUCM-BE-MIG part code is EoL! The announcement says to use the CUCM-USR-LIC standard part, but I can't see in there a migration SKU from BE to standard
