Supported and Unsupported Software Applications
If you want to upgrade to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2), be aware of the following software applications requirements and limitations.
Cisco Unity—To run Cisco CallManager 4.0(2) with Cisco Unity 4.0(2) and earlier, you must install the Cisco Unity CallManager TSP 7.0(4). You can download the release note and software at this URL:
IP Contact Center Express IP IVR/ICD—IPCC Express 3.5(2), which is required to run with Cisco CallManager 4.0(2), is not available for the ICS 7750. If you are running IPCC Express or earlier versions of Cisco Customer Response Service (CRS), do not upgrade to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2) at this time. See the ICS 7750 Compatibility Matrix for information about upcoming supported IPCC Express releases:
Cisco Security Agent—The Cisco Security Agent Release 1.1(6) and1.1(7) supports the ICS 7750 when Cisco CallManager Release 4.0(2) and the Cisco-provided operating system version 2000.2.6 (or later) are installed.
Cisco strongly recommends that you install a security agent to protect your servers against unauthorized intrusion. Cisco offers two security agent options: Cisco Security Agent (CSA) for Cisco CallManager and Management Center for Cisco Security Agent (CSA MC).
CSA for Cisco CallManager designates a standalone agent and security policy that is designed to be used on all servers in the voice cluster. The policy that is included with this agent gets configured specifically for Cisco CallManager and Customer Response Applications (CRA), and you cannot update or view it. You can download the standalone CSA agent (CiscoCM-CSA-4.02 629-1.1.7-K9.exe) at this URL:
If you want to add, change, delete, or view rules and policies that CSA for Cisco CallManager includes, or if you want to add support for non-Cisco approved, third-party applications, you must purchase and install the fully managed console, CSA MC. CSA MC requires a separate dedicated server to be used as the management center. This management center allows you to create agent kits that are then distributed to agents that are installed on other network systems and servers.

Upgrading to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2)
This document describes the procedure for upgrading the Cisco ICS 7750 from the latest version of Cisco CallManager 3.2 or Cisco CallManager 3.3 to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2a). You must use this release note with the Cisco CallManager documentation to upgrade to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2a) on the Cisco ICS 7750.
Note There is no direct upgrade from Cisco CallManager Releases 3.1(x) or 3.2(x) to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2a) because the ICS 7750 SPE requires reimaging. After re-imaging, you must install the latest Cisco operating system (OS) version and ICS 7750 System Manager (ICSSM) Release 2.6.2 before installing Cisco CallManager 4.0(2a).
Use the information in Table 1 to determine your upgrade requirements.
Preparing to Upgrade from Cisco CallManager 3.2 or Earlier to Cisco CallManager 4.0(2a)
You must use this release note with the Cisco CallManager documentation to upgrade to Cisco CallManager release 4.0(2a) on the Cisco ICS 7750. The upgrade procedure for the Cisco ICS 7750 differs because any SPE310s on which Cisco CallManager 3.1 (x) or 3.2(x) is installed must be reimaged and upgraded to system software release 2.6.2. The reimage process removes all data from the SPE310 and automatically installs the Windows 2000 OS. Reimaging tasks include a backup and restore of ICS System Manager data, a manual backup and restore of the C:\Restore folder, and a manual creation of the file, stiRecover.flg.
For detailed instructions on performing system software tasks on the Cisco ICS 7750, refer to Upgrading to System Software Release 2.6.0 and Cisco CallManager Release 3.3(2) on the Cisco ICS 7750.
Review the "Upgrading from Cisco CallManager 3.2 (If you Are Not Replacing Hardware)" section in the Upgrading Cisco CallManager Release 4.0(2) document and note items that apply to your current system.
Preparing the SPE for the Upgrade
Before installing the Cisco CallManager 4.0(2) software, you must backup all the Cisco CallManager and ICS System Manager data, and then reimage the SPE. For detailed instructions on performing system software tasks on the Cisco ICS 7750, refer to Upgrading to System Software Release 2.6.0 and Cisco CallManager Release 3.3(2) on the Cisco ICS 7750.
Caution To protect your Cisco ICS 7750 system from intrusion during the upgrade process, Cisco recommends that you disconnect the system from the network.
Follow these steps to prepare for the upgrade.
Step 1 For Cisco CallManager 3.2(latest version), back up your system by using the Cisco IP Telephony Applications Backup Utility, version 3.5.53 (or later). Follow these steps to upgrade the backup utility:
a. Disable any Cisco-verified, third-party applications, such as McAfee Anti-Virus services.
b. Remove the existing Cisco IP Telephone Applications Server Backup Utility.
c. Install Cisco IP Telephony Applications Backup Utility, version 3.5.53 (or later).
Step 2 Back up the Cisco CallManager data to a different computer.
Caution Make sure that you save a copy of the files in C:\Recover to an external server. You will need to restore these files after reimaging.
Step 3 Back up the ICS System Manager data to a different computer.
Step 4 Make a note of the SPE310 host name.
Step 5 Reimage the SPE310s that are running Cisco CallManager. The reimage process installs the Windows operating system.
Caution The reimage process erases all data on the SPE310. Be sure that you have successfully backed up your data before you reimage the SPE310.
Step 6 Verify that the SPE310 host name is the same as it was before the reimage. If it is not the same, change the SPE310 host name to exactly match the previous host name.
Step 7 Restore the C:\Recover directory that you previously saved before you reimaged the SPE310.
Note The Recover folder is a subdirectory of the folder in which the Cisco CallManager backup was stored. It contains two files—dbname.ini and backup.ini. These files must be present and in the folder C:\Recover on the SPE310, otherwise your Cisco CallManager data will not be restored.
Step 8 In the C:\ directory on the SPE310 that you are upgrading, create a file called stiRecover.flg.
Note This file is required to cause the Cisco CallManager installation program to perform an upgrade instead of a fresh installation. To create this file, choose Start > Run and in the Open field, enter notepad C:\stiRecover.flg. When asked whether you want to create a new file, click Yes, then close Notepad.
Step 9 Install the system software release 2.6.2 by using the Cisco ICS 7750 System Software CD-ROM for Release 2.6.2.
Tip For more information on how to perform these tasks, review the Cisco ICS 7750 documentation at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/voice/ics/icsapps/icscm/icscm33/index.htm
