I just received the 4.0(3) upgrade CDs from Cisco. I received only 3 CDs in the kit. Is it possible to take those 3 CDs and do a new hardware install and upgrade from 3.5(2) to 4.0(3). The documentation indicates that I can perform this type of new hardware upgrade. I was just a little concerned that I only had 3 CDs as opposed to the 7 CDs that came with 3.5(2). Also is there a way to request the current IPT OS 2000.4.1 or 2000.4.2. All I have are the 2000.2.4 CDs that were shipped with CRS 3.5(2). I suppose I can use what I have and upgrade to 2000.2.7 and then 2000.4.2.
Its surprising you got 2000.2.4 cd's with CRS 3.5.(2). I am in the middle of a CRS impl., and the version is 3.5(2) and the OS discs are 2000.2.7. You can download an upgrade file to upgrade from 2000.4.x from CCO.
I just got the disks for 4.0(3) and it has only 3 disks. Remember IPCC install requires only disk 1 and disk 2, unless you install multiple language, the other disks are not needed.
Check this guide for your upgrade from 3.x to 4.x. I am currently reading through it to understand the upgrade procedure, which seems fairly long.
Now, you do have a step where it asks for CRS 4.x license. I dont see a PAK number with this SASU kit, so I believe i have to use the old PAk from 3.x and contact licensing @cisco.com to get the new license.
I will keep you posted how this goes!

I see that there is a hold on this, but the link you specified is an internal cisco link. Can you paste the contents ?

Same situation here, new MCS-7825-H1 or HP DL320 G3 needs newer Hardware detection CD and OS CDs.
Also no KEY PAK shipped with the SASU PUT Tool media.
Opened TAC-LICENSE case only to get the run around asking for Cisco Sales Order.
