My customer wants to move VMs (CUCM, CUC, IM&P, UCCX) from the existing host Cisco UCSC240-M3S (which is EoL) to a new ESXi host.
Is there any cisco page available (could not find so far...), where steps are listed and explained what and how to do; what is/are the supported ways (manual copy/vMotion/etc...) of moving VMs to the new host?
And on top if it, customer wants to upgade the VMs from current version (10.5) to 11.x or 12.x.
Considering this, I guess upgrade can be done before moving VMs (current host would support the upper version of VMs) to new host or move them first and upgrade them on the new host.
They want also UCCX to handle 400 agents (300 is licensed currently), so it needs vCPU and vRAM amendment, which I think can be done by just shutting UCCX VM down changing settings
>> Adding vCPU is supported for all apps except Unity Connection, but requires VM to be shutdown first.
>> Adding vRAM is supported but requires VM to be shutdown first.
In case any rollback would be needed to the previous UCCX version, I do not think VM settings could be changed back, but need license for the previous version with 400 agents instead of
300 or 300 would also work on the amended VM?
Solved! Go to Solution.
did some research and found this below:
Do you think in my case, since only vCPU and vRAM should be changed (300 >> 400 agents), still need new VM template to create and by DRS way move application into the new VM?
That same page you're pointing to, explains what VMWare features are compatible with products.
If you want to move and upgrade at the same time, PCD would do that for you.
Can PCD do/handle the UCCX upgrade and also the VM tamplate change (300 >> 400) as well, or this this should be done separately in manual way meaning: DRS >> new template to install >> install UCCX on the new VM >> and finally get config from the back up?
No, PCD documentation has a table that thoroughly explains what PCD features are compatible per product and version.
PCD can only migrate CUCM and IM&P.
