Migrating from Unity 7 (windows based) to unity connection 9
Posted on 2014-01-13
I am going to use COBRAS to migrate from windows based unity 7 to unity connection 9.X. I have a couple questions about the use of COBRAS:
1. When I run the COBRAS export utility on my windows based unity 7 server, is this safe to do during production hours while the system is taking calls?
2. When I install the new unity connection 9.X server, I would like to give it a new name and IP Address so both unity servers can be online during the migration. When I run the COBRAS import on the new unity connection server, does it matter if the name and IP Address are different from the name and IP address from the server the export was done from?
3. Lastly, once I run the import on the new server, what happens? Is this server now the one answering calls, the ones with the active subscriber mailboxes, the one integrated with call manager? Or is it still the old server doing all this at this point?
