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:

 

CONFIG_FILES="global.cfg"

 

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?

Re: Polycom Provisioning site 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.
