Provisioning Phones

You provision phone features and settings with the UC software configuration files that you create and modify on your provisioning server.

You can also create and update specific phone configuration files, use variable substitution to update all phones in your deployment simultaneously, or configure phone groups.

When provisioning phones, you create configuration files as needed to support your deployment. When creating configuration files; however, do not use the following file names (the phones use these files to store override and logging information):
  • <MACaddress>-phone.cfg
  • <MACaddress>-web.cfg
  • <MACaddress>-app.log
  • <MACaddress>-boot.log
  • <MACaddress>-license.cfg
    Note:

    You can use the multiple key combination shortcut by simultaneously pressing 1-4-7 to display the following provisioning information on the phone:

    • Phone IP address
    • Phone MAC address
    • VLAN ID
    • Boot server type (FTP, TFTP, HTTP, HTTPS)
