CISCO CALLMANAGER 5.X TO CALLMANAGER 6.X UPGRADATION You can use the Software Upgrades options to perform the following types of installations and upgrades: • Install/Upgrade —Use this option to upgrade the application software, install Cisco Unified Communications Manager Locale Installers and dial plans, and upload and install device packs, phone firmware loads, and other COP files. • TFTP File Management —Use this option to upload various device files for use by the phones to the TFTP server. The TFTP server files that you can upload include custom phone rings, callback tones, and phone backgrounds. When you install upgrade software, you install the software on the inactive partition. The system continues to function normally while you are installing the software. When you are ready, you activate the inactive partition and reboot the system with the new upgrade software. The current active partition will then get identified as the inactive partition when the system restarts. The current software remains in the inactive partition until the next upgrade. Your configuration information migrates automatically to the upgraded version in the active partition. If for any reason you decide to back out of the upgrade, you can restart the system to the inactive partition that contains the older version of the software. However, any configuration changes that you made since upgrading the software will be lost. You can only make changes to the database on the active partition. The database on the inactive partition does not get updated. If you make changes to the database after an upgrade, you must repeat those changes after switching the partition. You can install a patch or upgrade version from a DVD (local source) or from a network location (remote source) that the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server can access. You must install the upgrade patch on the first node before installing it on subscriber nodes. You can install the upgrade patch on multiple subscriber servers at the same time. When you are ready to activate the new version, you must activate the new software on the first node before activating it on all other nodes. Obtaining the Upgrade File Before you begin the upgrade process, you must obtain the appropriate upgrade file from Cisco.com. If you are upgrading from Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 5.x, the upgrade file name has the following format: cisco-ipt-k9-patchX.X.X.X-X.tar.gz.sgn Where X.X.X.X-X represents the release and build number.

Note Do not rename the patch file before you install it because the system will not recognize it as a valid file. Note Do not unzip or untar the file. If you do, the system may not be able to read the upgrade files. If you are upgrading from Cisco Unified Communications Manager release 6.x, the
