Migrating to Unified CCX Release 8.5(1) from Physical to Virtual Server

To migrate to Unified CCX Release 8.5(1) from a physical server to a virtual server, follow the steps in the table below.

Task Reference
Perform a complete backup of Unified CCX 8.5(1) on bare metal server and store the backup TAR file at a safe SFTP network location. Shutdown the server. Refer to the Managing Backup Devices section in the Disaster Recovery System Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CCX and Cisco Unified IP IVR.
Install ESXi 4.0 on any one of the Unified CCX Supported Hardware for Virtualization as mentioned above. Refer to the VMware documentation to install VMware ESXi 4.0.
Deploy VMs from the templates mentioned above. Refer to the Readme with the Unified CCX virtual machine template.
Perform fresh installation of Unified CCX 8.5(1) on the VM with the same network and platform settings of the baremetal server. Refer to the Installation Guide for Cisco Unified CCX and Cisco Unified IP IVR.
Log in to the Disaster Recovery System with Platform Administrator credentials and perform the restore using the backup TAR archived in the first task. Refer to the Restore Scenarios section in the Disaster Recovery System Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CCX and Cisco Unified IP IVR.
