Polycom Provisioning site specific settings

We have an FTP server to which all of our phones use DHCP option 160/161 to locate the server.  There is a master configuration (000000000000.cfg) which has has the following configured for our phone's global settings:




I would like to deploy a subset configuration to all phones in one location/subnet.  Is it possible to have phones dynamically pick a config per location from a single provisioning server or would there have to be a separate FTP server per location to obtain per-location specific settings?

You could use different DHCP scopes for each location and point them at different FTP servers or the central FTP server with different accounts for each location. A simpler solution would be to look at using a provisioning application like <removed by the moderator> which allows you to create highly granular configs based on a number of criteria including location.
