VSM migration steps from 6.3.3 to 7.2.2

Level 1
Level 1

I have 1 virtualized VSOM server and 3 media servers.  Two of my media servers are older units that came with SLES 10 (32 bit) and VSM 6.3.  All servers were running 7.6 fine since I upgraded them to 7.6 a few months ago.  Unfortunately one of my media servers lost 2 hard drives at the same time and I lost everything on that box. 

I replaced the two drives (I had purchased spare drives) and I ran the 6.3 install from ISO from Cisco.  I am now needing to upgrade the box to 7.2.2 and then of course to 7.6.  Unfortunately my smartnet ran out a month before the drives failed - naturally. 

What I'm looking for, because I can't call Cisco is the step by step instructions on migrating from 6.3 to 7.2.  I had Cisco do this for me a long time ago when I first migrated to 7.2.  I know there were some CLI commands involved, copying the 7.2.2 setup files to the media server, etc. 


Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Emanuel, thank you for the response.  However, if you look through those guides, it tells you you have to contact Cisco to get from version 6.3 to 7.2.


I was able to get an ATP vendor to assist me with this.  Unfortunately I still do not know the process but I am upgraded and in production.  But since I have two older media servers, it would be nice to know the steps to take in case I need to do this again in the future.
