Downloading Software for an Upgrade from Cisco Unity Connection 2.x to the Shipping 2.1 Version

Revised 03 April, 2012

The upgrade application posted on Cisco.com can be used only to upgrade from Cisco Unity Connection 2.x to 2.1. It cannot be used to install a new Connection 2.1 server, or to migrate from Connection 1.x to 2.1.

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 the Shipping 2.1 Version


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(5), 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 UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso_part1of2, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download. Make note of the MD5 value.

Step 7 Click UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.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, or 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, copy and paste the following command from this document into the CLI to combine the two files:

cat UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso_part1of2 UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso_part2of2 > 
UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso 

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

COPY /B UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso_part1of2+UCS_Install_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso_part2of2 
UCSInstall_UCOS_6.1.5.10000-10.sgn.iso

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

18ad197858c261dd31d2118967d4c677

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


Caution 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.x 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, see 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 of 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

Connection 2.1(5) Cannot Be Installed on Selected Servers

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

Downloading and Installing Cisco Unity Connection Languages

Connection 2.1(5) Cannot Be Installed on Selected Servers

The Connection install will fail if you try to install Connection version 2.1(5) on the following servers:

MCS7845I3-K9-UCB2

MCS7835I3-K9-UCB2

MCS7825I4-K9-UCB1

MCS7845I3-K9-UCC1

MCS7835I3-K9-UCC1

MCS7825I4-K9-UCC1

MCS-7845-I3-ECS1

MCS-7835-I3-ECS1

MCS-7825-I4-ECS1

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(5x).


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 page, 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 or Cisco Unified CMBE 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(x) languages."

Step 11 Delete the downloaded files to free disk space.

Limitations and Restrictions

Changing the Name of a Connection or Cisco Unified CMBE Server Is Not Supported

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, note the following support considerations:

Changing the name of a Connection 2.1(5) server is not supported. If you need to change the name of a Connection 2.1(5) 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 of 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/7xcucrugx.html.

Changing the name of a Cisco Unified CMBE 6.1(5) server is not supported. If you need to change the name of a Cisco Unified CMBE 6.1(5) server, you must upgrade to Cisco Unified CMBE 7.1(2a) and follow the procedure in the "Documentation Update" section of Release Notes for Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition Release 7.1(2a) at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucmbe/rel_notes/7_1_2/712cucmbern.html.

Media Master Cannot Open WAV Files Saved on a Workstation in G.729a Format

The Media Master cannot open WAV files prerecorded in the G.729a audio format and saved to a workstation.

This limitation has the following workarounds:

Convert the WAV file to another audio format (for example, convert it to the G.711 audio format).

Use a WAV file that is recorded in a supported audio format other than G.729a.

Make the recording by using a phone or a computer microphone.

Note that when Cisco Unity Connection is configured to record in the G.729a audio format, the Media Master functions correctly for recording and playing by using a phone or a computer microphone.

Replacing Disks in a RAID

Connection supports replacing only 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.

Caveats

Documentation Updates

Errors

This section lists errors in the current documentation for Cisco Unity Connection and for Connection in Cisco Unified CMBE documentation and gives corrected information. The correct information will be incorporated in a future documentation release, or as otherwise noted.

System Administration Guide: Creating and Installing an SSL Server Certificate

In the "Creating and Installing an SSL Server Certificate" section in the "Securing Cisco PCA and IMAP Email Client Access to Cisco Unity Connection" chapter of the System Administration Guide, the task list and two procedures are incorrect, and a procedure is missing. Use the information in this section instead.

Do the following tasks to create and install an SSL server certificate to secure the Cisco Personal Communications Assistant and IMAP email client access to Cisco Unity Connection:

1. If you are using Microsoft Certificate Services to issue certificates, install Microsoft Certificate Services. Do the "To Install the Microsoft Certificate Services Component" procedure.

If you are using another application to issue certificates, install the application. See the manufacturer documentation for installation instructions. Then skip to Step 2.

If you are using an external certification authority to issue certificates, skip to Step 2.


Note If you already have installed Microsoft Certificate Services or another application that can create certificate signing requests, skip this procedure.


2. Create a certificate signing request. Then download the certificate signing request to the server on which you installed Microsoft Certificate Services or another application that issues certificates, or download the request to a server that you can use to send the certificate signing request to an external certification authority (CA). Do the "To Create and Download a Certificate Signing Request" procedure.

3. If you are using Microsoft Certificate Services to export the root certificate and issue the server certificate, do the "To Export the Root Certificate and Issue the Server Certificate (Only When You Are Using Microsoft Certificate Services to Issue the Certificate)" procedure.

If you are using another application to issue the certificate, see the documentation for the application for information on issuing certificates.

If you are using an external CA to issue the certificate, send the certificate signing request to the external CA. When the external CA returns the certificate, continue with Step 4.

4. Upload the root certificate and the server certificate to the Cisco Unity Connection server. Do the "To Upload the Root and Server Certificates to the Cisco Unity Connection Server" procedure.

5. Restart the Connection IMAP Server service so that Connection and the IMAP email clients use the new SSL certificates. Do the "To Restart the Connection IMAP Server Service" procedure.

To Install the Microsoft Certificate Services Component


Step 1 On any server whose DNS name (FQDN) or IP address can be resolved by all client computers that will use the Cisco PCA or that will use an IMAP client to access Cisco Unity Connection voice messages, log on to Windows by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

Step 2 On the Windows Start menu, click Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.

Step 3 In the left pane of the Add or Remove Programs control panel, click Add/Remove Windows Components.
