here you go...i got this straight from 2nd lvl avaya support after having the issues with the database.
==== Upgrade Prep ====
On the 6.0 system, go to deployment manager, and backup all servers to either an SFTP host, or the deployment server.
In this case, we did it to the deployment server.
Next, we went into the deployment server, and took the file out. Later on, we can put that file back if we mess it up.
Localtion on 6.0: /var/opt/nortel/deployment/deployed/<SERVERNAME>/backup/<SERVERNAME>-<DATE>.tar.gz
==== Linux Upgrade ====
On the 6.0 (Primary Security Server) base, login with an account that has network admin credentials, like the admin account.
Type upgrade. I recommend that you backup to USB as well.
<< SEE CAPTURE >>
After the upgrade. Log into UCM though the web, and apply the latest patches and service packs to the system.
==== PBX Upgrade ====
Everyone should know how to do that.
After the upgrade, apply the patches.
LD 117> unreg sec domain
LD 117> reg sec domain
You're MGCs may fail to join the sec domain via reg u s.
The Call Server amy push out the new loadware to the MGC.
==== MGC Upgrade ====
Push the new firmware out from the Call Server to the MGC. It'll reboot it self.
It will register back to the call server, not UCM.
Login using local credentials (ie. Admin2 // 0000) using PuTTY (or any SSH client).
No Security Domain information
Follow the instructions.
Questions, see capture.
==== Back to UCM ====
Your Elements List should have all your elements listed. Call Server (at 7.5), MGc (at 7.5).
You can safely delete any applications listed in the elements lists. (ie. EM, NRS, etc.)
As our systems does not have any applications deployed on it, as of yet.
==== Deploment Manager ====
Put in username and password that has network administrator access.
Add the software load.
Go to softare load.
It's faster to have a DVD/CD/USB that has the load on it. But, you can push from your client PC. No big Deal.
Hit Browse. Hit Add.
Once done. Go back up to Deployment View
Go to View: Select CS1000 Systems.
Click Add. CS1000 - Most of your stuff. CS1000 HS - High Scaleability (Not common)
Name your system. Find your call server.
Co-Res, select your CPPM card for this step. Non-CoRes, select your previously registered VxWorks System.
Select what systems you would like to have EM isntalled on.
Add your signalling server to the 'system'
You can come back later and add more.
Note: Once they are deployed as something different, it's hard to add more infromation to it.
Hit Finish. It'll make the system.
!!!!At this point, it's not deployed.!!!!
To add NRS, or other network services
Go to View: Select Network Services
Select taht Network Serice you want to add. And Hit add.
NRS: It'll ask for a name. Hit Next. Choose what server you'd like to deploy it to
Subscriber Manager: It'll ask for a name. Hit next. Choose what server you'd like to deploy it to. SubMgr can only go on the primary.
Now that we are done selecting what applications we want to be deployed onto the servers we have.
Change your view to Server.
!!!! At this point, you are one step away from deployment !!!!
!!!! But, we can always go back and change things if we want to !!!!
Select the server want to deploy. Select Deploy from the 'Deployment Actions' drop down.
It'll ask if we want to do it. Hit yes.
Since this is an upgrade, it'll ask if we want to restore any data to your server. It's recommnded.
Since we are deploying the primary security server/deployment manager. It won't transfer the installation files. It will for any other server.
The status will say, installation in progress. Once done, It'll say 'Deployment Successiful'
!!!! System is deployed !!!!
Go back to UCM Network Services to see your handy work. Everything should be populated correctly. Check this.
