About Cisco Unified Communications Manager License Count Utility

Cisco Unified Communications Manager License Count Utility is a desktop based application that aids administrators to migrate from the Device License Units (DLU) license type to the User Connect License (UCL) license type. Cisco License Count Utility is used for Cisco Unified Communications Manager devices that require Cisco licensing. New or upgraded Cisco devices should be registered, and a product authorization key (PAK) must be provided to obtain licenses from Cisco.

Before you upgrade to a Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 9.0, download and run the latest version of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager License Count Utility, a nonintrusive tool that enumerates the available DLUs in the Unified CM cluster and without changing the state of the system, suggests the corresponding UCLs required.
