CCA 3.2.2 Software Pack 8.6.1 and Windows 8

Hi there,

Anyone done this upgrade with Windows 8?  We completed the upgrade successfully and everything updated (it seems), except we cannot connect to the phone system on any vlan at this point.  Cisco told me it was because my laptop i performed the upgrade on was running Windows 8. 

Is this the case?

Thanks,

HelpDesk

Hi Help Desk,

Please be aware that Windows 8 has some very funky security issues, and you will experience this problem... I see it on a daily basis and not just with Cisco equipment, with a wide variety of other vendors equipment.

If you turn of the firewall entirely you should be able to operate as per normal, but how to get it to work with the firewall on is anybody's guess right now.

I am trialing Windows 8 now to see what insane stuff it does, but sadly I have no Cisco equipment anymore to test it on to try and get a better understanding on how it will impact it.

My Suggestion is to only use either Windows XP or Windows 7 with minimal security enabled, especially when working on Cisco appliances.

Cheers,


David Trad.
