SX20 Quick Set - Software Upgrade

I am scheduling an upgrade of some hosted SX20 telepresence endpoints to the latest software version.

The upgrade is from version 5.1.4 to 6.3.0

Does anyone know if I can upgrade these is one upgrade or do I have to go to 5.1.8 first and then upgrade?

Also are there any other known issues in completing this upgrade?

Hi Peter,

Yes, you can go straight from TC5.1.4 to TC6.3.0, you do not need to go via any intermediate releases.  As per the release notes (see page 33), you will need to have a valid TC6.x release key to upgrade from TC5.1.x if using the web interface.  Other software upgrade methods (TMS, SCP, etc) will work without the key.

Please be aware that with TC6.3.0, the default call type is now "Auto" instead of H.323, and tries in the order of SIP, H.323, then H.320, so if your endpoint is SIP enabled and you try to dial an E.164 address, it will try it via SIP first (which may fail if the resulting adderss is not valid in your environment).  A work around is to change the default call type from "Auto" to "H.323".

Hi Wayne,

As a matter of interest, that does the endpoint append to an E.164 number if it defaults to SIP? Obviously, SIP dialling addresses must be in a URI format (such as 'name@domain' or 'name@IP_Address'), so if the if just a string of nyumbers are entered, what is the resulting SIP URI dialed by the CODEC?

Many thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

It automatically appends the device's SIP domain to the end of the E.164 address when dialled, ie:

Device 1:

     SIP: device1@vc.domain.com

     E.164: 12345

     H.323 ID: DEVICE1

Device 2

     SIP device2@vc.domain.com

     E.164: 13456

     H.323 ID: DEVICE2

On device 1, if you dial the E.164 of device 2, with TC6.3.0, and the default call type set to "Auto", it will first try to dial as SIP, and tries 13456@vc.domain..com- which fails as that address is not valid.

I have logged a call with TAC to determine if this is by design (it's not mentioned in the release notes), or if it is a bug?

The issue with the dialling not failing back to H.323 after SIP fails has been acknowledged by Cisco and has been logged as Bug ID CSCum27379.  It happens in the new TC7.0.1 as well as TC6.3.x.
