Upload the Software Update for RealPresence Group Series Endpoints

You can update the RealPresence Group Series software.

Polycom recommends you to do software updates using the split packages available on Polycom Support to reduce consuming system resources.

Note: The RealPresence Resource Manager system doesn't generate a configuration profile automatically after you upload a RealPresence Group Series image.

  1. Go to Endpoint > UC Management > Upload Software Updates.
  2. Select Group Series from the Endpoint Type drop down list.

    1. Select the Update Requires Key check box.
    2. In the Software Update Key File field, browse to the .txt key file you received in Request Upgrade Activation Keys.
      Note: The key is generated from the endpoint serial number and version number, and Polycom sends it as a text (.txt) file to the customer when new software is available. After uploading a software image, you cannot view the key file anymore. To update the file, you must re-upload the software with updated key file.
