Creating Per-Phone Directory Files

To create a per-phone, personal directory file, replace < 000000000000 > in the global file name with the phone's MAC address: <MACaddress > -directory.xml.

Any changes users make to the contact directory from the phone are stored on the phone drive and uploaded to the provisioning server in the personal directory (<MACaddress > -directory.xml) file, which enables you to preserve a contact directory during reboots.

To create a global directory file that you can use to maintain the directory for all phones from the provisioning server, remove the tilde (~) from the template file name 000000000000-directory.xml. When you update the global directory file on the provisioning server, the updates are downloaded onto the phone and combined with the phone specific directory.
