since BE6K used to require Advanced UC and new ordering guide does not mention clearly the answer, I would prefer not
make any assumptions. Also Dean'answer above seems that there is still an evaluation process. So I will wait for an official answer.
Now since you mentioned the MM promo, there are some unclarified items on partner specialization in the T&C doc.
But I will send a seperate email in order not to confuse people in this thread about BE6K bundle.
I cannot select Smartnet services for the BE6K-ST-BDL-K9= SKU using CCW, could you check?
I just checked CCW for Smartnet for BE6K-ST-BDL-K9= and it is working...see below. I would suggesting openning a CCW case to see if they can help.
Thanks for the quick answer.
Another issue... when I select the 25 UCL bundle I cannot add 1 or 25 Jabber Desktop licenses, could you check:
For Migration from BE5K public space licenses (PUBLIC-IP-DEV-UWL) to BE6K can i just order Enhanced upgrade licenses # UPG-6K-ENH ?
I will need enhanced licenses as I have the 7900 series IP Phones and 7937 conference phones.
The ordering guide and in Netformx I see no mention of ESW for the 25 user bundle.
In CCW it is also claiming that BE6K-START-UCL25 is not valid.
Netformx is probably waiting to add this SKU - it's still only a week or so old.
You should be able to find the BE6K-START-UCL25 though - it's a child SKU to R-CBE6K-K9. i.e. you have have to order it as part of that electronic top level SKU along with the BE6K-ST-BDL-K9= hardware bundle.
Hope that helps,
I found BE6K-START-UCL25 in NF, but I can't figure out how to tie ESW to it...
EDIT--- putting BE6K-START-UCL25 under R-CBE6k-K9 let me add ESW and UCSS and do it easier.....
Makes more sense now....
I would appreciate some guidance on the following scenario...
We have a customer with an existing CUCMBE version 8.5 on MCS7828 hardware and 130 users. The customer wishes to upgrade to CUCMBE 6000 on UCS and re-use the existing MCS7828 as a redundant server and also migrate the existing user licenses.
It is not clear from the new ordering guide how to approach this particular scenario, re-using the exiting MCS as a redundant node.
Can someone offer some guidance on ordering for this deployment?
Order the BE6000 server BE6K-ST-BDL-K9= and use R-CBE6K-K9 to order the 8.5 to 9.0 migration licences as required (assuming that they wish to move to 9.0).
You can just use the MCS server with this deployment - there are no specific licenses required to allow this. Just ensure that you have SmartNet in place for the server - if that is what the customer needs.
There are some migration presentation and examples posted on the following URL might help you.
Choose the tab for "partner resource" and scroll down to the bottom.
Today I found an issue with the BE6K-ST-BDL-K9= SKU. I cannot select just smartnet services for the BE6K HW Bundle. What if a customer does not want to use the VCS licenses?
Please see the image for details.
