DRS backup was taken from a standalone CUCM. Is deployment type the difference between standalone and business edition? I deployed the standalone OVA file on the UCS 220M3. cucm_10.5_vmv7_v1.8.ova Since this was a very small deployment i picked the 2500 CUCM user node. Would i get this deployment type error if i had a different user node # like default of 7500 CUCM user node on the old server?l
Yes, you can only go from a smaller, to a bigger platform. The other way around is NOT supported. You would need to use BAT for that.
How can I check deployment type of my old cluster? (Is deployment type a number of users which this server can have? 500, 1000, 2500, 7500) when I try to restore my server from a backup I have such error:
Unable to restore the data - Can not find the deployment type.
I've made a backup of the cluster which is consist of CUCM pub CUCM sub and IMP.
I've turned off my CUCM pub server and install a new one on a new hardware server with the same ip address, hostname, dns, ntp. I've tried to restore pub from backup, but got this error, also I've tried to restore configuration from cucm sub but got the same result.
The problem typically is because the hard drive specification is different. For example if you have an OVA file from CUCM 8.6 with 7500 users, you will see that the HDD it gives is 2- 80GB hard Drive while CUCM 11.5 7500 users would be 1- 110 HD
To make this work, select The restore for only CAR, CDR, and UCM and this should work better. You may have to rebuild PLM and other components
