How can I setup the TCPIP hostname?

I'd like for the device to show up in my DHCP list as line1.domain.local instead of Polycom_[MAC ADDRESS].domain.local

 

Is there any way to do this?

 

VVX500

UC 5.5.0

Windows Server DHCP

POE

LOL

 

(OK , but seriously Steffen, I know about the beta software... Still is this possible?)

 

Love the devices BTW

Hello KeithT,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

The first result => here <= explains this in detail and I will create an FAQ post out of this as well.

 

Please be aware that using UC Software 5.5.0 and LYNC base profile Polycom will not provide any support.

Thanks for your reply,

 

I was looking for a way to use a variable to set the hostname. For example:

device.host.hostname = device.logincred.user

 

Is that possible?
