Provisioning Skype for Business Phones

The method labeled device.set is an advanced method for users familiar with configuration files and uses centralized provisioning to set the Base Profile for multiple phones.

The Base Profile is a provisioning option available on Skype for Business-enabled devices that simplifies the process of registering your devices with Skype for Business. The Base Profile displays in the phone's menu system and varies by phone model. The Base Profile automates registration with a default set of configuration parameters and settings; you cannot modify or customize the Base Profile or feature settings. Because you can provision only a single phone at a time from the local phone menu, use centralized provisioning for deployments of greater than 20 devices requiring only default Skype for Business settings.

If you are using Polycom UC Software 5.1.1 or later, the per-phone Web Configuration Utility is disabled by default and you cannot register phones using the Web Configuration Utility. If you want to configure phone options using a phone's Web Configuration Utility after registering the phone with the Skype for Business Server, you must enable access to the Web Configuration Utility.
