15 CUCM Upgrade Definition
W1 W1 Upgrade: Windows to Appliance model High complexity with possible longest downtime (e.g. CUCM 4.1(3), 4.2(3), or 4.3(2) to 7.1(5b)) L2 Upgrade: Appliance to Appliance model Low complexity with possible shortest downtime Between CUCM versions with the same Major RHEL versions (e.g. CUCM 7.1(5) to 8.5 or CUCM 8.6 to 9.1) RU (Refresh Upgrade): Appliance to Appliance model with major RHEL version change (starting with RHEL 5) Medium complexity with possible longer downtime From CUCM versions 6.X, 7.X, 8.0 or 8.5 to 8.6, 9.X and 10.X (e.g. CUCM 8.5 to 8.6 or CUCM 9.1 to 10.0) Not covered in detail in this session. More detail steps in the appendix L2 RU 15

16 CUCM Migration Bridge Upgrade: Appliance to Appliance model
Upgrade is allowed with Cisco CallManager service “Not Running” Long downtime due non-functional system and a platform change (e.g. Older servers that cannot newer version of CUCM) Jump Upgrade: Appliance to Virtualized model Virtualized CUCM with 6.1(4), 6.1(5), 7.1(3) and 7.1(5) for lab upgrade Minimal downtime due to lab upgrade (e.g. Older servers that cannot upgrade to 8.0(3) or later to virtualized) Platform Change: Appliance to Virtualized model Low complexity with minimal downtime From CUCM versions 6.X, 7.X, 8.0 or 8.5 to 8.6, 9.X and 10.X (e.g. Older servers that cannot support the latest CUCM or CUCM 10.X) Up to 9.1(2) Jump To 9.1(2) Goal: Appliance to Appliance or Virtual Process not upgrade task Bridge - Bridge Upgrade The bridge upgrade provides a migration path for customers who want to migrate from discontinued Cisco Unified Communications Manager server to a server that supports the newest release of Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Servers that are no longer supported, but are permitted to function as bridge upgrade servers, can upgrade and boot but will not allow Cisco Unified Communications Manager to function. When you attempt to upgrade your Cisco Unified Communications Manager version on a discontinued server model, Cisco Unified Communications Manager inserts a message into the upgrade log. The upgrade log is displayed on the web browser when the upgrade is initiated through the Cisco Unified Communications Operating System Administration window, or you can view it through CLI if you used CLI to perform the upgrade. This message notes that you can only use the new version to obtain a DRS backup. The warning message in the log is followed by a delay that allows you to cancel the upgrade if you do not want to do a bridge upgrade. When the system boots the new Cisco Unified Communications Manager version, a warning appears on the console that tells you that the only thing you can do with the new Cisco Unified Communications Manager version is to perform a DRS backup ("This hardware has limited functionality. Backup and Restore is the only supported functionality."). Because of the restricted visibility of the console, the warning displays during both CLI and GUI sessions. PC 16

20 Refresh Upgrade (RU) Recommendations
Perform a DRS back up before upgrade Track console of server to monitor progress of upgrade – IP KVM, HP ILO, or IBM RSA for bare metal server or virtual machine console for virtual machine To minimize downtime, upgrade Publisher or first node until completion and then upgrade first set of Subscribers or secondary nodes while leaving some nodes performing call processing Install the latest COP (ciscocm.refresh_upgrade_v1.1.cop.sgn) file on CUCM version 8.5 or earlier to allow for successful upgrade and limit switch version after upgrade COP file is NOT required for CUCM version 8.6 or later to upgrade to 9.X 20

Demo: Warning displayed : The system is operating on demo licenses that will expire in <X> days. Add this system to an Enterprise License Manager and install sufficient licenses to cover its usage before expiration in order to avoid losing the ability to provision users and devices. Demo is 60 days. No Provisioning: Warning displayed: The system is operating without any valid licenses. Configure licenses on the system in order to restore the ability to provision users and devices. Overage: Warning displayed: The system is operating with an insufficient number of licenses. If additional licenses to cover the shortage are not configured in your Enterprise License Manager within <X> days, you will no longer be able to provision users and devices. Lost connection to ELM: Warning displayed: The system has not synchronized successfully with Enterprise License Manager for <X> days. If successful synchronization does not occur within the next <60-X> days, you will no longer be able to provision users and devices. Security mismatch with ELM: Warning displayed: Due to a certificate mismatch, the system has not synchronized successfully with Enterprise License Manager for <X> days. If successful synchronization does not occur within the next <60-X> days, you will no longer be unable to provision users and devices. Grace: Warning displayed: The system is operating under a licensing grace period that will expire in 1 day. Install sufficient licenses in the Enterprise License Manager for this system to cover its usage in order to avoid losing the ability to provision users and devices. If licenses for this system are not already being managed by an Enterprise License Manager server, the system must first be added to one. Base on response from ELM or no response from ELM, these are the CUCM license state 49

85 Phase II: Phone Firmware Distribution
Peer-to-Peer Image Distribution (PPID): Configurable via AXL script with Unified 4.1 and later using CCMPPID.exe. (Readme in notes section) Configurable via CM Administration or BAT from version 5.0 and later Default is disable PPID on all phones models Change TFTP service parameter for dedicated TFTP server on CUCM 5.1(1c) or later: System > Service Parameter > Cisco TFTP (Advance) Maximum Serving Count (default is 200 for Windows and 500 for appliance) 1,500 for single processor dedicated TFTP server and 3,000 for dual processors dedicated TFTP server Readme on PPID for 4.X ser/ccmppid.readme.txt Testing: TFTP Max setting: Windows: Default = 200 Dedicated – 200 Co-located – 50 to 100 5.1(1c) or later Dedicated – 5000 Co-located Help file is 1,500 and 3,000 for single and dual processors Peer-to-Peer Image Distribution (PPID):

86 Phase II:Phone Upgrade Caveat
If possible, choose final CUCM version default or recommended firmware. Avoid multiple upgrade and downgrades Some third-generation IP phones (7971G-GE, 7970G, 7961G-GE, 7961G, 7941G-GE, 7941G, 7911G, and 7906G): Firmware release 6.0(1) or earlier needs to upgrade to 7.0(3) CUCM 4.1(2) or earlier All third-generation IP phones: Firmware release 8.3(2)SR1 or earlier must upgrade to 8.5(2) before upgrading to 8.5(2)SR1 or later Factory phones or phones taken off another CUCM cluster _2/english/release/notes/7900_852SR1.html (7962 and 4.1(3) upgrade to 7.1(3)) cause phone to upgrade twice With RTMT narrowed down the phones that were running Set the device defaults to SCCP S, reset TFTP, reset only the phones that were running 8.3(2).

87 Phase II: CUCM Upgrade Clear out logs in /common partition for upgrade
Disable extension mobility Minimize CAR to reduce upgrade time Stage software on CUCM server during download before upgrading Starts secondary nodes or Subscribers when Publisher logs indicate that upgrade can start on secondary nodes or Subscribers Upgrade secondary nodes or Subscribers at the same time (15 minutes delay in between nodes) For large high availability upgrade, increase “maximum number of registered devices to 7500 or 10000” Check for DB replication state of 2 before and after upgrade Reverse engineer the CAC link and download the CAC plug in There are a couple of compatibility restrictions to be aware of: 1) CUxAC server OS must be Windows 2008 R1 (not R2) 2) CUCM version must be at least version 8.0(1)

88 Phase III: CUCM Upgrade Consideration
Clustering over the WAN (COW) can increase time for installation, upgrade and database (DB) replication by 40%–50% Firewall between Unified CM servers After upgrade, check for the following using CLI, RTMT and Unified Reporting (details in notes section) DB replication state Tools and Commands to check for Connectivity: utils diagnose module validate_network utils network connectivity show network ipprefs all utils firewall list utils network capture Cisco Unified Reporting > CUCM Cluster Overview report In CUCM there's a new command 'utils dbreplication runtimestate show perf query class "Number of Replicates Created and State of Replication What the replication state counter means: 0 = Initialization 1 = Number of replicates is not correct (old sys) 2 = Replication is good 3 = RealTime replication is reporting error 4 = Replication setup failed (this meaning is for 5.1.3, all 6.X and all 7.x versions) On and earlier, RTMT state of 2 is good (same as 6).
