Local Admin Password on VVX450 UC

We recently got in a few of the new VVX450s and when working through the config for UC, I've run across an issue where the admin password is not being changed by my config file.  That section of the config is below:


    <device.prov device.prov.serverName="redacted" />
    <device.auth device.auth.localAdminPassword="redacted" />
    <device.auth.localAdminPassword device.auth.localAdminPassword.set="1" />


The phone is getting the "device.prov.serverName" and "device.auth.localAdminPassword.set" values because I can see them when I export the config out of the phone:



This config has worked previously on older firmware on other VVX models, and it looks like the parameters are still the same according to the Admin Guide:




Any help would be appreciated!

I was able to resolve this by putting the "device.auth.localAdminPassword.set" parameter before the password parameter in the config file.
