Because of the hardware differences, you must migrate from a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server to a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Application Server. You cannot use a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server with a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 system and you cannot upgrade from a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server to a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Application Server.

Note: We recommend that you keep the legacy Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 6.0 Audio Server until you confirm that the migration to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace 7.0 is successful.


To migrate data from an Audio Server to an Application Server, perform the following tasks in this order:

Exporting Data from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server

Before You Begin

You must have the following software installed before migrating your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server:

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace MeetingTime Release 6.0.4.6 or higher.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server Release 6.0.4.4 or higher
Restriction
  • Do not run any other processes or tasks on your systems during a migration. This can potentially affect the data that is being transferred from one system to another.
  • For failover purposes, please make sure that you have fully built, configured, and completed migration on your primary server (Node1) before you configure a standby server (Node2) and enable replication.
Procedure
  1. Stop the Gateway SIM and Web Conferencing services. See How to Use the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Service.
  2. Use MeetingTime to log in, as an attendant or higher, to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server.
  3. Go to MeetingTime > Administration.
  4. Select the Report tab.
  5. Click MigrateData Capture from the left panel.
  6. Click Generate Report.
    The system displays a message stating that this report can generate a high data transfer load on the Audio Server and is intended only as a migration tool to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0. It should not be run during periods of active utilization.
  7. Click Yes when the system asks if you want to continue.
    The system generates a file called migratedata.zip, which is located in the directory in which Cisco Unified MeetingPlace MeetingTime is installed, and puts the following files in it:
    • MtgCat.xml
    • RawGroup.txt
    • RawMeetings.txt
    • RawMtgCat.txt
    • RawPartAtt.txt
    • RawProfile.txt
    • RecordedNames.zip
    The MigrateData Capture report exports all the .wav files (for recorded names) to the Reports folder in the directory in which Cisco Unified MeetingPlace MeetingTime is installed.
    Note: The system does not remove these files after creating the RecordedNames.zip file. Therefore, if you want to capture migration data from another Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server, remove all of the .wav files from the Reports folder.
What To Do Next



Importing the Data to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Application Server

Use the Migration Import Tool in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Administration Center to import the data from the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 Audio Server to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Application Server.


Restriction

Do not run any other processes or tasks on your systems during a migration. This can potentially affect the data that is being transferred from one system to another.


Procedure
  1. Sign in to the Application Server command-line interface by entering su informix.
  2. Navigate to the appropriate directory by entering cd /opt/cisco/meetingplace/database/db-maintenance/.
  3. Enter ./update_statistics.sh, then wait until the command completes (in approximately 5 minutes).
  4. Log in to the Administration Center on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 7.0 Application Server.
  5. Choose Maintenance > Migration Import Tool.
  6. Enter the name of the data file that contains the import data.
  7. Click Execute.
  8. Restart the Application Server when the data migration is complete.
