Replace a Single Server or Cluster
This document describes how to replace a single server or an entire cluster for
Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Replacement means that you replace the server hardware while preserving the server configuration. The replacement server operates identically to the old server.
In Release 10.0(1) and later, Cisco supports only virtualized deployments of Cisco Unified Communications Manager (Unified Communications Manager) on Cisco Unified Computing System servers, or on a Cisco-approved third-party server configuration. In Release 10.0(1) and later, Cisco does not support deployments of Unified Communications Manager on Cisco Media Convergence Server servers. For more information about the deployment of Unified Communications Manager in a virtualized environment, see http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Unified_Communications_in_a_Virtualized_Environment.
Because this process is designed to work as a server replacement, you need to do it in the live environment. Cisco does not recommend doing this process on a "dead net" because a duplication of the entire network environment is required, which is highly risky.
