About Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment

These release notes describe new features, requirements, restrictions, and caveats for Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment. These release notes are updated for every maintenance release.

Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment is an application designed to assist in the management of Unified Communications applications. It allows the user to perform tasks such as migration of older software versions of clusters to new virtual machines, fresh installs, and upgrades on existing clusters.

Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment has four primary, high-level functions:

  • Migrate an existing cluster of Unified Communications servers to 11.5 or higher from 10.x and above (this would be Virtual to Virtual)

  • Perform operations on existing clusters (11.5 or higher). Examples of these operations include:

    • Upgrade the cluster to a new version (11.5 or higher) of software

    • Switch version

    • Restart the cluster

  • Changing IP addresses or hostnames in the cluster on existing Release 10.x or higher clusters.

  • Fresh install a new Release 11.5 or higher Unified Communications cluster.


Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment does not support internationalization or languages other than English.

Upgrading to Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment 14SU3 from Pre-14 source release need COP file ciscocm.enable-sha512sum-2021-signing-key-v1.0.cop.sgn to be installed to list the Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment 14SU3 ISO file as valid.
