Downloading Software for an Upgrade from Cisco Unity Connection 2.x to 2.1 or Cisco Unified CMBE 6.x to 6.1

Revised April 03, 2012

Note For a Cisco Unified CMBE upgrade, the files you download for the upgrade are the same as the files used to upgrade both Connection and Cisco Unified Communications Manager. So, you can use the procedure in this section or the procedure in the "Upgrading to Cisco Unified Communications Manager 6.1(2)" section in the "Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1(2)" chapter of the Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition Release 6.1(2).


The upgrade application posted on Cisco.com can be used only to upgrade from Cisco Unity Connection 2.x to 2.1 or from Cisco Unified CMBE 6.x to 6.1. It cannot be used to install a new Connection 2.1 or Cisco Unified CMBE 6.1 system.

Because of the size of the upgrade application, the file has been divided into two parts. Do the following procedure to download the two parts and to recombine them into a single file.

To Download Software for an Upgrade from Connection 2.x to 2.1 or Cisco Unified CMBE 6.x to 6.1


Step 1 Log on to a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, and go to the Voice and Unified Communications Downloads page at http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/pub/Redirect.x?mdfid=278875240.


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


Step 2 In the tree control on the Downloads page, expand : Products>Voice and Unified Communications>IP Telephony>Unified Messaging>Cisco Unity Connection, and click Cisco Unity Connection Version 2.1.

Step 3 On the Select a Software Type page, click Unity Connection Software.

Step 4 On the Select a Release page, click 2.1(2), and the download links appear on the right side of the page.

Step 5 Confirm that the computer you are using has sufficient hard disk space for the downloaded files. (The download file sizes appear below the download links.)

Step 6 Click UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part1of2, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download. Make note of the MD5 value.

Step 7 Click UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part2of2, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download. Make note of the MD5 value.

Step 8 For each downloaded file, use a checksum generator to confirm that the MD5 checksum matches the checksum that is listed on Cisco.com. If the values do not match, the downloaded file is damaged.


Caution Do not attempt to use a damaged file to install software or the results will be unpredictable. If the MD5 values do not match, download the file again until the value for the downloaded file matches the value listed on Cisco.com.

Free checksum tools are available on the Internet, for example, the Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier utility. The utility is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 841290, Availability and Description of the File Checksum Integrity Verifier Utility. The KB article also includes a link for downloading the utility.

Step 9 Execute one of the following commands, depending on the operating system, to reunite the two parts of the file:

On a Unix/Linux system, cut and paste the following command from this document into the CLI to combine the two files:

cat UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part1of2 UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part2of2 > 
UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso

On a Windows system, cut and paste the following command from this document into the command prompt (cmd.exe) to combine the two files:

COPY /B UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part1of2+UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso_part2of2 
UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.2.1000-13.sgn.iso

Step 10 Use a checksum generator to confirm that the MD5 checksum of the reunited file matches the following checksum:

68e99f0b080298d65b4b82a8befbfe8b

If the values do not match, the reunited file is damaged.


Caution Do not attempt to use a damaged file to install software or the results will be unpredictable. If the MD5 value of the reunited file does not match the value listed above, download the file again until the value for the downloaded file matches the value listed on Cisco.com.

Step 11 If you are installing from a DVD, burn the DVD, noting the following considerations:

Use the Joliet file system, which accommodates filenames up to 64 characters long.

If the disc-burning application that you are using includes an option to verify the contents of the burned disc, choose that option. This causes the application to compare the contents of the burned disc with the source files.

Step 12 When you are finished combining the files, delete the separate parts to free disk space.


Migrating to Cisco Unity Connection

See the applicable section:

Cisco Unity Connection Configuration

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition Configuration

Cisco Unity Connection Configuration


Note Migrating from Cisco Unity Connection 1.x to Connection 2.x requires that you purchase an upgrade license. Migrating from Cisco Unity to Connection 2.x requires that you purchase a Cisco Unity Connection migration license.


Because Connection is installed on a server running Linux instead of Windows, you cannot simply upgrade from Connection 1.x. To convert a Connection 1.x or a Cisco Unity 4.2 or later system to Connection 2.x, you must do the following tasks:

1. Export Connection 1.x or Cisco Unity subscriber data.


Note Only user data and, optionally, voice messages are preserved during a migration. System-level configuration data (for example, templates and classes of service) must be manually configured.


2. Use a Connection 2.1(2) DVD to reinstall all software on the server.

3. Recreate templates, classes of service, and other system-level configuration data.

4. Import the data that you exported from Connection 1.x or Cisco Unity. For more information, refer to the following documentation:

The "Requirements for Migrating from Cisco Unity Connection 1.x to Version 2.x" section or the "Requirements for Migrating from Cisco Unity 4.2 or Later to Cisco Unity Connection Version 2.x" section in System Requirements for Cisco Unity Connection Release 2.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/2x/requirements/20cucsystemreqs.html.

The "Migrating User Accounts and Messages" chapter of the User Moves, Adds, and Changes Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 2.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/2x/user_mac/guide/2xcucmac.html.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition Configuration

There is no supported migration path from Connection 1.x to Cisco Unified CMBE. If you want to migrate from Connection 1.x to Cisco Unified CMBE, you must reinstall all software, and recreate all system and user data.

Installation and Upgrade Notes

License Tag Required to Use the U.S. English Conversation and Personal Call Transfer Rules

Downloading and Installing Cisco Unity Connection Languages

License Tag Required to Use the U.S. English Conversation and Personal Call Transfer Rules

If you want to use English-United States for the Connection conversation or you want users to be able to create personal call transfer rules, the Connection license must include the license tag LicRegionIsUnrestricted. If your Connection licenses do not include the LicRegionIsUnrestricted tag and you want to use these features, install a license that includes the tag. After you install the license, you must restart Connection. (Licenses without this tag are intended only for use outside the United States.)

If you choose not to install a license that includes the LicRegionIsUnrestricted tag, you must install one or more Connection languages.

Connection demonstration licenses include the LicRegionIsUnrestricted tag, so you can use English-United States on demonstration systems.

To Determine Whether the LicRegionIsUnrestricted License Tag Is Present


Step 1 In Cisco Unity Connection Administration, under System Settings, click Licenses.

Step 2 On the Licenses page, click the name of the first license file.

Step 3 On the View License page, in the File Content box, search for the text "LicRegionIsUnrestricted."

Step 4 If you do not find the text in the first file, search all of the other license files listed on the Licenses page.

Step 5 If "LicRegionIsUnrestricted" does not appear in any of the license files, get a license that contains the tag before you install Connection.


Downloading and Installing Cisco Unity Connection Languages

Revised 03 April, 2012

The languages for Connection 2.1(1) are also the languages that you use for Connection 2.1(2).


Caution Do not use languages for versions of Connection earlier than 2.1(1), or installing languages will fail.


Caution Depending on your license settings, you may not be allowed to use English-United States and, therefore, must install other languages for Connection to function. For more information, see the "License Tag Required to Use the U.S. English Conversation and Personal Call Transfer Rules" section.

To Download Cisco Unity Connection Languages


Step 1 Log on to a computer with a high-speed Internet connection, and go to the Voice and Unified Communications Downloads page at http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/pub/Redirect.x?mdfid=278875240.


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


Step 2 In the tree control on the Downloads page, expand: Products>Voice and Unified Communications>IP Telephony>Unified Messaging>Cisco Unity Connection, and click Cisco Unity Connection Version 2.1.

Step 3 On the Select a Software Type page, click Unity Connection Locale Installer.

Step 4 On the Select a Release, click 2.1(1), and the download links appear on the right side of the page.

Step 5 Confirm that the computer you are using has sufficient hard disk space for the downloaded files of the language(s) that you want to install. (The download file sizes appear on the downloads page.)

The filename for each language is uc-locale-<two-letter language abbreviation>-<two-letter country abbreviation>-<version>.cop.sgn.

Step 6 Click the name of a file to download.

Step 7 Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download. Make note of the MD5 value.

Step 8 Repeat Step 6 and Step 7 for each Connection language that you want to install.


Note You can install up to five languages on a Connection server.


Step 9 For each downloaded file, use a checksum generator to confirm that the MD5 checksum matches the checksum that is listed on Cisco.com. If the values do not match, the downloaded file is damaged.


Caution Do not attempt to use a damaged file to install software or the results will be unpredictable. If the MD5 values do not match, download the file again until the value for the downloaded file matches the value listed on Cisco.com.

Free checksum tools are available on the Internet, for example, the Microsoft File Checksum Integrity Verifier utility. The utility is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 841290, Availability and Description of the File Checksum Integrity Verifier Utility. The KB article also includes a link for downloading the utility.

Step 10 Either copy the downloaded files to an FTP or SFTP server, or burn the files to CDs or DVDs. If you burn discs of the files, note the following considerations:

Use the Joliet file system, which accommodates filenames up to 64 characters long.

If the disc-burning application that you are using includes an option to verify the contents of the burned disc, choose that option. This causes the application to compare the contents of the burned disc with the source files.

Label the discs "Cisco Unity Connection 2.1(2) languages."

Step 11 Delete the downloaded files to free disk space.

Added April 14, 2009

In Connection 2.1(2) and Cisco Unified CMBE 6.1(2), an editable Hostname field was added to the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System user interface. However:

Changing the name of a Connection 2.1(2) server is not supported. If you need to change the name of a Connection 2.1(2) server, you must upgrade to Connection 7.0(1) or later and follow the applicable procedure in the "Renaming Cisco Unity Connection 7.x Servers" chapter in the Reconfiguration and Upgrade Guide for Cisco Unity Connection Release 7.x at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/connection/7x/upgrade/guide/7xcucrug060.html.

Changing the name of Cisco Unified CMBE server is currently not supported for any version, although changing the name of a Cisco Unified CMBE 7.1(2) server is currently being tested. To determine whether support for changing the name of a Cisco Unified CMBE 7.1(2) server has been added, after Cisco Unified CMBE 7.1(2) has been released, see Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition Release 7.1(2) at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucmbe/rel_notes/7_1_2/712cucmbern.html.

Replacing Disks in a RAID

Connection supports only replacing a defective disk in a RAID with a blank disk to repair the RAID. Replacing disks in a RAID for any other reason is not supported.


Caution Do not replace a disk in a RAID with a disk that contains data, even if the replacement disk was originally a disk in the same RAID in the same server.
