Downloading Software for Cisco Unity Connection 1.2(1) Service Release 1

This section contains procedures for downloading the Server Updates wizard (which installs Microsoft updates that are required with Connection), and for downloading an image of the Cisco Unity Connection 1.2(1) Service Release 1.

Downloading the Server Updates Wizard

The Server Updates wizard installs the latest Microsoft updates that are required with Cisco Unity Connection and the latest version of Cisco Security Agent for Cisco Unity.

For a list of updates that are installed, refer to Software Installed by the Cisco Unity Connection Server Updates Wizard at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6509/prod_installation_guides_list.html.

To Download the Server Updates Wizard


Step 1 On a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, go to the Microsoft Updates for Cisco Unity Software Download page at http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/unity_msft_updates.


Note To access the software download page, you must be logged on to Cisco.com as a registered user.


Step 2 Confirm that the computer you are using has sufficient hard disk space for the downloaded file and for the extracted wizard. You will need approximately two times the total of the download file size. (The download file sizes appear on the Microsoft Updates for Cisco Unity Software Download page.)

Step 3 Click the name of the Server Updates wizard file.

Step 4 Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download.

Step 5 Extract the Server Updates wizard to the hard disk:

a. In Windows Explorer, double-click the file.

b. In WinZip, specify the directory to which the wizard will be extracted.

Step 6 Burn a CD for the wizard, and label it "Server Updates wizard <date>."

If you have a Server Updates wizard CD shipped from Cisco, set it aside so you do not accidentally use the wrong CD during installation or upgrade.

Step 7 When you are done extracting the wizard, delete the downloaded .exe file to free disk space.
