upgrade CUCM from 9 to 11

I want to upgrade CUCM 9.x to 11.x. Will this be called upgrade or migration? Kindly let me know do I need to have new license or existing licence could be migrated. If yes, how to do it? I do have valid subscription until 2017.

Depends on how you get from 9

Depends on how you get from 9 to 11, it could be either one. You can review the videos I created, and as I mention, you need to do your due diligence and read the related documentation before doing anything.

Thanks Jaime, very helpful

Thanks Jaime, very helpful videos! I have a couple of questions:

- PCD will migrate automatically the database from the old version to the new one we are migrating, right?

- Whats the procedure if you are migrating CUC at the same time - the same as for CUCM or?

- You know that if you are upgrading from 9 to 11 you need a couple of .cop files - ciscocm.version3-keys.cop.sgn and etc. Should we have to upload them to the PCD as well as the bootable images?

Yes, otherwise you'd be just

Yes, otherwise you'd be just installing a blank VM, it does migrate the DB and the data.

No, CUC does not use PCD for migrate, you use COBRAS (as explained in the CUC documentation)

No, they're not bootable images. Bootable images are only those you use to do a fresh install.

Thanks Jaime! Please advise

Thanks Jaime! Please check the attached file based on which If I use CUCM 9.1(x) the supported migration method is Unified CM OS Admin. Can I use PCD in this case - 9.1(x) to 11.5(x) when I have v2v from UCS to BE7K?

Hall of Fame Cisco Employee

Yes, you can use PCD for v2v

Yes, you can use PCD for v2v migrations as well.

And last final question -

And last final question - should I add both ESXi hosts under the PCD - the old one from which I want to migrate and the new to which I'm gonna migrate or I should add only the ESXi host to which I'm gonna migrate and only to discover the existing cluster?

Hi Jaime

It seems amazing how PCD can do the job but I have a question, does PCD need some kind of license to do that? or is like COBRAS that doesn´t need a license?

 

Thanks

PCD is free and comes bundled with CUCM, it does require you to meet the ESXi licensing requirements in order to use the APIs that are required.
