UCx 6.0 Upgrade Instructions for UCx1000

This page provides instructions on how to upgrade from an existing UCx1000 Server to Release 6.0.

Step One: Removing Second Hard Drive

From the UCx Web Configuration Utility, prepare the second hard drive for removal by shutting down the UCx1000 Server. See Shutdown or Reboot. If the hard drive is online, the green activity/fault indicator flashes as the drive is turned off. You can remove the hard-drive when the hard-drive indicators turn off.

Perform the procedure below to remove the second hard drive:

  1. If installed, remove the front bezel.
  2. To remove the second hard-drive, press the release button to open the hard-drive carrier release handle.
  3. Slide the hard-drive carrier out of the hard-drive slot.
  4. Insert a hard-drive blank into the empty hard-drive slot and push the hard-drive blank until the release button clicks into place.
  5. Power up the UCx1000 Server.

Step Two: Upgrading UCx Server to Release 6.0 software

See UCx 6.0 Upgrade Instructions.

Step Three: Reinstalling Second Hard Drive

Once the UCx1000 Server running Release 6.0 has been verified and deemed to be working, you can now reinstall the second hard drive that was removed in Step One. When the second hard drive is reinstalled, it will be automatically synchronized with the upgraded first hard drive.

Perform the procedure below to reinstall the second hard drive:

  1. Proceed to shutdown the UCx1000 Server.
  2. Press the release button and slide the blank out of the hard-drive slot.
  3. Insert the hard-drive carrier (the one that was removed in Step One) into the hard-drive slot until the carrier connects with the backplane.
  4. Close the hard-drive carrier handle to lock the hard drive in place.
  5. Install the front bezel if applicable.
  6. When the UCx1000 Server is powered up, data on the first hard drive will be automatically synchronized to the second hard drive. This process will take approximately 6 hours.

Step Four (Optional): Return to Original Configuration

If it is necessary to return to the original configuration and abort the upgrade, perform the following steps:

  1. Shut down the system.
  2. Pull out the First drive
  3. Reinsert the Second drive
