The information in this document is based on the Cisco Unified Web and E-Mail Interaction Manager version 4.2(5).
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Warning: Only configurations that meet certain criteria can be upgraded to Cisco Interaction Manager 4.2(5).
Before you proceed with the upgrade, you must verify that your current system has these settings:
On the master, active, and archive databases, collation settings must be set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS.
On configurations that are already on SQL Server 2005, the SQL Server collation setting must be set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS.
Complex password settings must not be enforced on SQL Server 2005.
On all servers in the Cisco Interaction Manager configuration, the regional option must be set to English.
The Cisco Unified E-Mail Interaction Manager/Web Interaction Manager (EIM/WIM) 4.2(5) upgrade fails due to a SQL Collation incompatibility. When the SQL server collation order is not SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS, the upgrade fails.
Complete these steps in order to verify the Regional Options setting on the file, services, database, and all application and web servers:
Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel.
Double-click Regional and Language Options.
In the Regional and Language Options window, on the Regional Options tab, in the Standards and formats section, verify that English (United States) is selected.
Complete these steps in order to verify the Regional Options settings on the database server:
Verify that the collation setting for the master, active, and archive databases is set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. In order to verify the database collation, run this query on the active, master, and archive databases:
Note: If you have already upgraded to Microsoft SQL server 2005, run the query on the databases on SQL Server 2005. If the databases are still on SQL Server 2000, run the query on SQL Server 2000.
On the SQL Server 2005 database server, verify that the collation setting is set to SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. Run this query:
On SQL Server 2005, verify that complex password policies are not enforced by the SQL Server 2005 instance. In order to verify this, run this query:
IF (SELECT distinct 1 FROM sys.sql_logins WHERE is_policy_checked = 1) = 1 PRINT ‘Complex password policy is enforced’ ELSE PRINT ‘Complex password policy is not enforced’
