Upgrading WCS to Prime

I'm in the process of upgrading a customer's WCS server to Prime. I know before I can upgrade the WCS server to Prime. I must first upgrade the WCS sever to NCS. My problem is the customer's WCS server is running software version 7.0.230 and I need to upgrade it to 7.0.240 before I can extract the WSC database. My question is, if I upgrade the WCS server  from 7.0.230 to 7.0.240 will that cause the customer's  Wireless Lan Controllers that are being managed by WLC server to also upgrade?

Re: Upgrading WCS to Prime

Upgrading WCS will not cause the WLCs to upgrade. You can safely upgrade WCS without worrying about impacting the WLC.

Upgrading WCS to Prime

Maurice, I had a devil of a time upgrading WCS to NCS to Prime.

Long story short, I found the time taken on a very unsuccessful WCS->NCS->Prime migration was 4-8 times longer than the time it took to just install Prime, add the WLCs, and manually rebuild the maps.

YMMV.

PS, Cisco Prime LMS is probably replacing their wired management software (often LMS, Cisco Works+ RME, etc). I believe every best-practice guide I've seen from Cisco says to have one Prime for wireless, and one Prime for wired... even though Prime looks like it could handle both.

Upgrading WCS to Prime

As you can see, this is my first time implementing a Cisco Prime installation so I have a question. The customer that I am migrating from WCS to Prime have purchased Cisco Prime Infrastructure and Cisco Prime LMS. I understand how to migrate the WCS's database to Cisco Prime Infrastructure, but I am unsure what to do with Cisco Prime LMS. Do I import that same WCS's database into Cisco Prime LMS also or do I just set it up as a new installation?
