We are currently running Unity 4.2.1 (single server) and want to upgrade to Unity 8.0.3 on new hardware (Cisco MCS 7835-I)I want to build the server with a new IP address but from what I have read the instructions only show how to build using the same IP?
I ordered the Software from Cisco PUT and unsure the 1st disc I’m suppose to use to build the server.I have the Prereq DVD and the Unity ASR Installation DVD.The instructions say to use the Cisco Unity Platform Configuration disc but I don’t see this one?
After I get the server built what is the recommended migration path to the new server?Which data store DVD do I use? Should I do a Dirt from the current server to the new server?I read the Dirt has to be done from the same Unity version (i.e can’t do a dirt from 4.2 to 8.03).
I'd always go with COBRAS as it saves you time compared to DiRT and you retain quite a bit of data. Here is a presentation on COBRAS - it is geared towards Unity Connection; however, it still gives quite a bit of info regarding COBRAS as well as a number of screen shots that illustrate basic usage.
I am going to be upgrading Cisco Unity, for a customer who is running Unity on an exchange server, from version 4.2(1) to version 8.0(3). Per my customer, they are using RPC instead SMTP/VPIM. They currenly have Microsoft Exchange 2003 sp2. Will this upgrade completely wipe out the old version of Unity and load the new version (i/e upgrading CUCM from 4.X to 7.X) or will just load the latest/updated drivers on the Unity Server (i/e - upgrading CUCM 7.X up to 8.X)? Also, since they are not running SMTP/VPIM, how will this upgrade effect RPC?
