Select a time period when traffic is low to transition to the new Mediation Server. Typically, system administrators schedule this transition either after hours or over a weekend. By following the procedures in this section, you should experience no more than 15 minutes of downtime.

To replace the old Mediation Server with the new Mediation Server, perform the following tasks:

  1. Modify the media gateway device to connect to the new Mediation Server.

  2. Add the new Mediation Server to the location profile route.

  3. Remove the old Mediation Server from the location profile route.

Steps for configuring or modifying the media gateway device are beyond the scope of this document. Consult your vendor documentation for the specific procedures to change your media gateway.
