Each released version of SIP or UCS software contains the relevant supported configuration files that, depending on the software Version, are needed to provision the phone.
NOTE: Do not ever mix configuration files from previous versions with newer versions!
Since the appearance of newer phone models, older phones have been classed as legacy phones, and the newer phones software now may contain a sip_(Version of Sip).cfg and a phone1_(Version of Sip).cfg
This allows a mix of phones and guarantees backwards capability.
NOTE: Please consult the SIP / UCS Admin Guide matching your software version!
UCS 3.3.0 removed the need for this and the phone does only need to download either the templates files listed in the \Config subdirectory or any self-created files that had been listed within the CONFIG_FILES=" " section of a 000000000000.cfg or manually created <mac>.cfg.
Example file's from within the \Config subdirectory within UCS 3.3.0:
The user must specify the files that should be loaded via the CONFIG_FILES="" section as these are not automatically loaded.
For more details please check => here <=
NOTE: The files within the \Config are only templates and individual parameters can be copied & pasted into an manually created file(s) instead !
Manually creating a configuration file:
NOTE: Please note that the configuration file must be XML conform or the phone will ignore it!
In order to change the standard value of a single parameter it is easier to create an individual file.
The example parameter used in below is se.rt.enabled="1"
If 0, the ringtone feature is not enabled on the phone. If 1 (default), the ringtone feature is enabled.
Using UCS 3.3.0 or newer (check the matching admin guide) the parameter is contained in the template file features.cfg.
Above shows an individual file stored as rt.cfg and the value changed from the factory default 1 into 0.
Only the individual Phone with this MAC address will load this parameter.
NOTE: Substitution placeholders can be used as shown => here <=
UC Software 4.0.0 or later:
Since UCS 4.0.0 the phone can import configuration files via the Web Interface. For more Information please check => here <=
This is useful in order to add configuration changes to an individual phone with Parameters that are not available to change via the Web Interface or the Phone GUI.
The expected format would be an XML file with the .cfg as a file extension.
