CUCM 9 Licensing

John Biggs

Level 1

       We have 3 sites running CUCM 8.6.  Each site has a single node, cucm server and is a test lab environment.  We would like to pool our licenses.  If we upgrade to CUCM 9, Could we manage all three sites with a single instance of Enterprise License Manager?  thanks.

Hi Richard

You can find many similar posts with the same issue if you search that

But for your referense yes you can do that.Just you  have to install one ELM and add there only the CUCM PUB and CUC PUB if you have(only PUB is neccesary)

Here are the upgrade/migration steps:

Step 1: From the License Management > License Planning page in Enterprise License Manager, click the Upgrade Licenses button.

Step 2: The Upgrade Licenses wizard window appears. The first step involves choosing the product type. From the Choose Product

Type section, select the type of product to upgrade from the drop-down menu. Click Next.

Step 3: The Choose Product Instances section appears. To upgrade a product instance, select it in the Available Product Instances

window and click the arrow to move it to the Product Instances to Upgrade window. Click Next. The only products that appear in the

Available Product Instances table are those that have been upgraded from a previous release and have not yet had their licenses migrated.

Step 4: The Specify License Counts section appears. Select the appropriate Recommendation Mode from the drop-down list to view the

recommended license counts as either User Connect Licenses (UCL) or Cisco Unified Workshop Licenses (CUWL).

Step 5: In the License Allocation table, edit the Adjust Recommended Count column and click Save to save your change for that license type.

You may also choose to run a compliance check by clicking the Run Compliance Check button, or reset the license values by clicking the Reset

Values button. Once all license count values have been updated, click Next.

Clicking the arrow next to each license type reveals additional information on that license type. Caution. The upgrade process can be completed only

once per Unified CM product instance. You will not be able to upgrade any remaining DLUs on the selected product instances in the future.

Step 6: The Summary and Next Steps section appears. In this section you can view and save a summary of the changes you made. To view the

summary, click View Summary. A default name for the summary also appears in the Name field using the format -add- format. Instructions for placing your order and fulfilling your licenses also appear in this section. Click Finish & Generate Request

Step 7: The License Migration Request and Next Steps window appears. Copy the selected text to your clipboard or click Save it to a file on your computer.

Step 8: Select License Migration Portal under Step 2 and paste the copied text in the designated field or select the saved file from your computer.

Step 9: Click Close to return to the License Planning page

Step 10: The license migration plan now appears in the table on the License Planning page.

In addition to Chrys excellent post please note that ELM can only run on a virtualized platform. If you are upgrading on a bare metal server, you need to make provisions to install ELM on a virtual platform.

I second the Excellent reply as I just went through this myself. I might also add if they have any interest in upgrading their Presence, the licensing is not needed for Presence and IM since it authenticates off Call Manger and the ELM per user licensing.
