  • PrintPrint


A Cisco router has been installed/delivered with the incorrect version of Cisco Call Manager Express (CME) installed.


This solution is from cisco website and the following link can be used for reference:

Installing Cisco Unified CME Software:
To install Cisco Unified CME in flash memory, perform the following steps:
Summary steps:
1. Go to software download site.
2. Download archive.
3. Extract files to be downloaded.
4. Use the copy or archive tar command to copy file to flash memory.
5. Use the show flash: command to list files in flash memory.
Detailed steps:
Step 1 Go to http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/ip-key.
Step 2 Select the file to download.
Step 3 Download zip file to tftp server.
Step 4 Use the zip program to extract the file to be installed, then:
a. If the file is an individual file, use the copy command to copy the files to router flash:
Router# copy tftp://x.x.x.x/P00307020300.sbn flash:     
b. If the file is a tar file, use the archive tar command to extract the files to flash memory.
Router# archive tar /xtract source-url flash:/file-url     
Step 5 Verify the installation. Use the show flash: command to list the files installed in in flash memory.
Router# show flash:            31 128996 Sep 19 2005 12:19:02 -07:00 P00307020300.bin      32 461 Sep 19 2005 12:19:02 -07:00 P00307020300.loads      33 681290 Sep 19 2005 12:19:04 -07:00 P00307020300.sb2      34 129400 Sep 19 2005 12:19:04 -07:00 P00307020300.sbn           
Step 6 Use the archive tar/create command to create a backup tar file of all the files stored in flash. A tar file can be created that includes all files in a directory or a list of up to four files from a directory.
For example, the following command creates a tar file of the three files listed:
archive tar /create flash:abctestlist.tar flash:orig1 sample1.txt sample2.txt sample3.txt           
The following command creates a tar file of all the files in the directory:
archive tar /create flash:abctest1.tar flash:orig1           
The following command creates a tar file to backup the flash files to a USB card, on supported platforms:
archive tar /create usbflash1:abctest1.tar flash:orig1
