Previous page: System Requirements



If you are at Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 5.4 or 6.0, you can migrate to Release 7.1 from a previous release. Migration preserves some of the existing customer and system data while installing a new system.



Table: Migration Requirements lists the basic migration requirements. For detailed migration information, see About Migration.


Notes:

  • We currently only support migrations to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 from Release 6.0 maintenance release 5 (MR5). If you are using an earlier version of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, then you must first upgrade to Release 6.0 MR5.
  • You need new licenses for your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 system. Licenses for a Release 6.0 system will not work on a Release 7.1 system. For details about licenses, see About Licenses.
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 6.1.2 or Release 7.0 is required for voice and video SIP integration to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1. Cisco Unified Communications Manager software is automatically provided with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 Application Server software. Nevertheless, you need to:
    • Obtain the Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS) hardware for Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
    • Make sure that the specific Cisco MCS model supports the number of SIP sessions required by your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.
  • Not all Release 6.0 features are supported in Release 7.1. See the "Features No Longer Supported in Release 7.1" section in the Release Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1.



Table: Migration Requirements
Migration Type Requirements

Release 6.0 Audio Server to Release 7.1 Application Server

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server software required before migration:

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace MeetingTime Release 6.0.5.9 or later release
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server Release 6.0.5.17 or later release

Release 6.0 Cisco Unified Videoconferencing to Release 7.1 Media Server

You can reuse the following parts of a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 system:

  • Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3545 chassis. This chassis can be reused as the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 3545 Media Server for a Release 7.1 system.
  • Cisco Unified Videoconferencing 3545 EMP card. With a firmware upgrade, this card can be reused as the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Video Blade for a Release 7.1 system.

The following parts of a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 system cannot be reused for a Release 7.1 system:

  • Cisco Unified Videoconferencing-3515-MCU-12
  • Cisco Unified Videoconferencing-3515-MCU-24
  • Cisco Unified Videoconferencing-3545-MCU
  • Release 6.0 video software or video configurations

Release 6.0 Web Server to Release 7.1 Web Server

Cisco IP Telephony Operating System (OS) required on Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Web Server before migration:

  • Cisco IOS Telephony (Windows 2003)-2003.1.4a


You can either reuse an existing Cisco Media Convergence Server (MCS), or you can install a newer Cisco MCS.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Directory Services (MPDS) to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1 Directory Service (which uses Cisco Unified Communications Manager)

The migration process imports all users as local users. You need to run a batch file to restore the local and non-local status for users after migrating them to the Release 7.1 system. See Migrating Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6 Directory Service to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.1.
