About Migration

You cannot upgrade your system from Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 1.x to Release 8.5. However, you can migrate your system. Migration means that you can use an old configuration, but you have to reinstall the software system completely.


Caution You must use the boot helper for the installation if you are moving from Release 1.x to Release 8.5.

To migrate from Release 1.x to Release 8.5 requires that you perform a clean install. A clean install wipes out all configuration and data; therefore, you must back up your configuration first. After you install the new system, you restore the configuration and data.

Use the information in this chapter along with the information in Installing Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5.

Restrictions

Although a best effort has been made to ensure backward compatibility, we recommend that you thoroughly inspect the backed up configuration to ensure that the data was not compromised.

Also follow all the restrictions in the "Restrictions for Installing Cisco Unified SIP Proxy Release 8.5" section.
