Migrate from BE6K to new BE6M

Hello folks! I am currently running a two node cluster for Call Manager, Unity, and IM&P. I will be purchasing new hardware in the near future. What's the best practice to go about migrating the existing VM's to the new hosts? My Cisco hosts are separate of my other hosts that tie back to vCenter. Currently running 11.5 and my plan is to go to run 12.5 on the new hosts. Any information or links you can share?

I would say, use PCD. you can migrate from old box to new on version 12.5. But unity connection you can't  migrate.so you need to do the backup upgrade option.

I would likely have moved the VMs from the old host to the new and spin them up on it. Then upgrade it to 12.5 on the new host.

Thank you folks! I will review and report back. Also for PCD do I need to deploy on both old and new hosts?


Regards

PCD is a standalone system. You can deploy it on any of them, as long as it has network access to the systems, old and new.

You need just one PCD. New Be6M BOX comes with PCD.
