Bootblock SoundStation IP6000

I just have a question.

 

Our organisation has several IP6000's.

 

Recently we made changes to our DHCP-server so the IP6000's can now boot with the Factory Default settings.

 

We noticed that some IP6000's didn't start correctly with the default settings.

 

After a closer look i found out that there were different Bootblocks.

 

The IP6000's with a Bootblock v3.0.2 worked without any problem, the one's with a Bootblock v2.8.0 didn't.

To get the last one up-and-running i had to change one option in the Server menu: change FTP into TFTP.

 

My question, is it possible to update the Bootblock?

Is it somekind of eprom that i can order?

Hello dstein,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

It is always useful to include the currently used software version as issue experienced may already be addressed in a newer release. This also allows yourself and others to check against current software release notes.

A BootBlock is usually only provided in extreme cases and you will require to raise a Support ticket with Polycom support via your Polycom reseller.

 

I would suggest you check the issue via wireshark as described here:
