[FAQ] What files does my phone download or upload and why?

Below information is based on a SoundPoint IP 650 running UCS 4.1.0.

 

Different phones depending on their current software version may vary.

 

The Boot process may differ and several files may be downloaded or uploaded /created/appended during the boot process.

 

NOTE: 123456789012 is a made up MAC address for this example only. The phone will attempt to download/upload/create/append a file named after its MAC address!

 

Oct 7, 2011 Question: What is the relevance of the 000000000000.cfg or <mac>.cfg?

\Config Subdirectory

 

Since UCS 3.3.0 or newer a subdirectory called Config is also included with the downloaded software.

 

This directory contains various template files. They can be utilized provisioning certain parameters to phones.

 

The files are:

 

  • H323.cfg
  • reg-advanced.cfg
  • reg-basic.cfg
  • region.cfg => optional, often used for non-North American settings

  • sip-basic.cfg
  • sip-interop.cfg
  • site.cfg
  • video.cfg => if using the VVX 1500, 500 and 600 for video calls

  • video-integration.cfg => For deployments in which the SoundStation IP 7000 is deployed as an audio and control end point connected to a Polycom HDX device, you only need to configure a limited number of parameters

  • device.cfg
  • features.cfg
  • applications.cfg => If implementing applications using the browser and XML Control/Status API

Above are not automatically downloaded and need to be specified within the CONFIG_FILES="" section of a 000000000000.cfg or <mac>.cfg

Re: [FAQ] What files does my phone download or upload and why?

Since UC Software 4.0.0 or later a backup can be created via the Web Interface Utilities > Phone Backup & Restore > Phone Backup > Phone Backup

 

Backup_Configuration.png

 

The backup is stored as a <mac>_PhoneModel_Date_Time.pbu format. Example 0004f2fcb831_Trio8800_18-04-2018_14-25.pbu

 

The backup contains the running configuration of a phone with separate sections showing the provisioning source i.e. Phone itself, Web Interface or Configuration files from a provisioning Server or in case of Skype for Business the Call Server.

 

In addition a user can also use the Web Interface to create individual Export files

 

Export_Configuration.png

 

  • All Configuration (except Device Settings) Export_all.cfg
    All configuration sources apart from device configuration i.e. IP Settings, CDP, LLDP etc.

  • Config Files => Export_config_files.cfg
    All configuration provisioned via a provisioning Server shown as <CONFIG_FILES in a backup PBU file

  • Local => Export_phone_local.cfg
    All configuration changes made on the phone locally via the Phone UI shown as <PHONE_LOCAL in a backup PBU file

  • Web => Export_web.cfg
    All configuration changes made via the Web Interface of the phone shown as <WEB in a backup PBU file

  • SIP => Export_call_server.cfg
    Changes pushed inbound from a Call Server like Skype for Business shown as explained => here <= and as  <CALL_SERVER in a backup PBU file

  • Device Settings => Export_device_settings.cfg
    All device configuration i.e. IP Settings, CDP, LLDP, Passwords etc. shown as  <DEVICE_SETTINGS in a backup PBU file

 

The actual hierarchy of provisioning a Polycom phone is in this order:

Utilising the Web Interface to determine the Source:

 

Configuring a parameter via the web

Configuring a parameter via a configuration file via provisioning

Utilising the Web Interface to find the relevant configuration parameters:
