You can use a USB memory key to perform a local upgrade of a Unified Communications Module.

! WARNING - Not Supported for Upgrades from Pre-R11.1
This method of upgrading is not supported for upgrading from pre-R11.1 releases. For example, from R11.0 to R11.1. The sever must be upgraded using the processes in the "Upgrading Linux-Based IP Office Systems to R11.1" manual.

! Upgrade Warning
Upgrading shows a summary of the supported upgrade paths and methods. Before using any upgrade, refer to the IP Office Technical Bulletin for the IP Office release to confirm that Avaya supports the upgrade path and for any additional information that may not be in this manual.

! Backup Application Data
In all cases, always backup all application data to a separate location before upgrading. You can do this using the Web Manager menus.

Process Summary

1.Upgrade the IP Office System
The IP Office system must be upgraded to the target software release before the module is upgraded, including the addition of any necessary upgrade licenses.

Preferred License Change
On pre-IP Office Release 10 systems, the Unified Communications Module v1 granted the host system a virtual Preferred Edition license. That no longer applies for IP Office Release 10 and higher. Any systems being upgraded to IP Office Release 10 or higher must use the IP Office license migration process to retain the existing license.

2.Download the software
Download the R11.1 USB creator software and C110 ISO image.

3.Backup the applications
Backup the Voicemail Pro and one-X Portal for IP Office applications to a location other than the module. Refer to the separate documentation for the applications and their current level of software.

5.Prepare the USB upgrade key
Using the downloaded software, create a bootable USB upgrade key from the downloaded ISO image.

6.Reboot the module
Reboot the module from the USB upgrade key and let the module upgrade.

7.Check operation
Log in to the server menus.
