Hi Aman,So my understanding

Hi Aman,

So my understanding is..

First .....

1) From the Physical Server take a DRS Backup.UC 8.6

2) Create the VMware Session for 10.x with respective ova template required for 5000 users.

3) Intall the 10.x with same config like hostname ip etc.. Both PUB & SUB.

4) Restore the DRS Backup of 8.6..on 10.x VM ware

5) With the help of cobras migrate the licenses.

Second

1) From the Physical server take a DRS Backup of UC 8.6.

2) Create the VMware Session for 10.x with respective ova template required for 5000 users.

3) Install the 8.6 (same version) on vmware with same config like hostname ip etc..Pub & Sub.

4) Restore the DRS Backup on vmware.

5) Get the license from cisco.

6) The upgrade the UC 8.6 to 10.x ..

Which is correct aman First or Second.

Also am confirmed that Unity Connection (UC) 10.x can be integrated with CUCM 8.6.

Hi Jagadish,

 

You need to follow second option.while restoring, u need to have exactly same versions.

Unity connection 7.x  or in your case 8.6  is compatible with call manager 10.x or lower CUCM versions

Thanks Aman,

So i need to follow this...

Second Option

1) From the Physical server take a DRS Backup of UC 8.6.

2) Create the VMware Session for 10.x with respective ova template required for 5000 users.

3) Install the 8.6 (same version) on vmware with same config like hostname ip etc..Pub & Sub.

4) Restore the DRS Backup on vmware.

5) Get the license from cisco.

6) The upgrade the UC 8.6 to 10.x ..

 

And wrt compatibility my CUCM remains on 8.6 version and unity connection moves to 10.x version. Hope this fine.
