Unity upgrade - Restricted or Unrestricted?

All,

I am looking to upgrade our Unity server from 7.1.3 up to 7.1.5b SU3, however I am unsure as to whether I need the restricted or unrestricted upgrade files.  I am not sure how to check this?  I read that the difference between the 2 is whether failover is a feature or not.  Can someone please clarify this and tell me the best way to check which one i need?

Thanks!!

Hi Craig,

Your current 7.1(3) version is "Restricted" and is what you'll almost certainly stick with

The Restricted version is the one that has been around forever and is what 95%

of us run. The un-Restricted version only came out with the release of CUC 7.1(5)

and it contains many changes to encryption that allows it to be shipped/installed in certain

countries around the world where it was previously not allowed.

Cisco Unity Connection 7.1(5a)—Restricted and Unrestricted Versions

Added July 7, 2010

With this release and going forward, providing two versions of the Connection software—restricted and unrestricted—addresses import requirements for some countries related to encryption of user data and affects the following functionality:

Functionality
Restricted
Version of Connection
Unrestricted
Version of Connection

SSL for IMAP connections used to access voice messages

Enabled

Disabled

Secure SCCP, SIPS, and SRTP for call signaling and media

Enabled

Disabled

File replication in a Connection cluster

Uses 128-bit encryption

Uses 40-bit encryption

Communications among networked Connection servers or clusters

Uses SMIME

Uses unencrypted
MIME


In the unrestricted version, if the disabled settings listed above are changed manually, Connection ignores the changes.

For the restricted version, "Restricted Installation" is included in the DVD label. For the unrestricted version, "Unrestricted Installation" is included in the DVD label and "UNRST" is included in the download filename.

Connection versions 7.1(5) and earlier were equivalent to what is now referred to as the restricted version.


Caution With restricted and unrestricted versions of Connection software available, download software or order a DVD carefully. Upgrading a restricted version to an unrestricted version is supported, but future upgrades are then limited to unrestricted versions. Upgrading an unrestricted version to a restricted version is not supported.

Hi,

I am working for an organisation where there is no requirement for unrestricted version, however admin working here before installed 7.1.5 version of unrestricted Unity connection and now we want to upgrade it to 8.6. However both restricted and unrestricted version of Unity connection 8.6 software fails to upgrade. Need your valuable input in this to get the issue fixed. Note : current 7.1.5 version not even accepting the intermediate file of version 7.1.5 version upgrade to 8.6. Pls help.

Thanks

Hi Nisaar

You should open a new thread for this discussion.

You should also specify the exact version you are running, the exact file/version you are attempting to upgrade to, and ideally upload the upgrade logs so we can diagnose the failure.
