Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment is an application that is designed to help in the management of Unified Communications (UC) applications. It allows you to perform tasks such as migration of older software versions of clusters to new virtual machines, fresh installs, and upgrades on existing clusters.
Collaboration Deployment has four primary high-level functions:
existing cluster of UC servers to a new cluster (such as MCS 7800 to virtual or
virtual to virtual)
operations on existing clusters (8.6(1) or later). Examples of these operations
Change IP addresses or
hostnames in the cluster on existing Release 10.x clusters.
All the IP
addresses that are mentioned in this document applies only for the IPv4 address
Fresh install a new Release 10.x, 11.x, or 12.x Unified Communications cluster
