Sorry if this is a noob question, but we have just upgraded to CUCM 12.5.x and I need to deploy a firmware upgrade to my MX700s and other video endpoints. In version 11.x I would login to the OS Administration portal on the publisher, click on Software Upgrades, then go to Software Installation/Upgrade to begin the process of transferring the cop.sgn files. I'd then repeat these steps on each subscriber. I noticed the Software Installation/Upgrade Cluster menu.... Can this be used to deploy the device firmware cop.sgn file to my publisher and subscribers or is this just for OS/App upgrades?
i believe you can use that for upgrading the firmware too.
i tried this option Software Installation/Upgrade Cluster for installing ciscocm.free_common_space COP.
Asper the admins guide its mentioned to use Install/Upgrade option not the cluster. Better stick with the admin guide.
And asper Cisco documents the install/Upgrade cluster is to enhance and make easier tasks like Upgrade/Restart/Switch Version
Thank you Roger! So this will install the device firmware cop.sgn file on all the servers in the cluster, right from the publisher? Do I still need to restart the TFTP service on all servers?
The above will install COP file from publisher . and you need to restart the TFTP individually.
you can use Software Installation/Upgrade Cluster if you need to install a cop file on a cluster. if you are installing a cop specific to a server use the Installation/Upgrade.
in your case you are trying to install the cop on a cluster and you can proceed with the Cluster option.
Yes that correct. After completing the cop file installation you should restart the TFTP service on any node where it runs.
