Changing Device Parameters

Keep the following in mind when modifying device parameters:
  • Note that some parameters may be ignored. For example, if DHCP is enabled, it will still override the value set with device.net.ipAddress .
  • Though individual parameters are checked to see whether they are in range, the interaction between parameters is not checked. If a parameter is out of range, an error message displays in the log file and the parameter is not be used.
  • Incorrect configuration can put the phones into a reboot loop. For example, server A has a configuration file that specifies that server B should be used, and server B has a configuration file that specifies that server A should be used.

To detect errors, including IP address conflicts, Polycom recommends that you test the new configuration files on two phones before initializing all phones.
