Polycom VVX 301 + VVX 500 EFK Flags

Hi,

 

I have a Polycom VVX 301, and VVX 500. The VVX 301 we have a snippet of code for the softkey EFK options, along with the enhancedFeatureKeys which include: park, pickup call, and page. It all works fine on the VVX 301.

 

Both VVX 301 and VVX 500 is using software version 5.3.0.12074

How should we solve this problem?

Re: Polycom VVX 301 + VVX 500 EFK Flags

Hi,

 

In my previous post I forgot to mention that the snippet of code does not work on the VVX 500, but it does on the VVX 301.

 

How do we fix this on the VVX 500? Any suggestions.

Hello @ethomas,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

I suggest you test this using a currently supported software version.

 

UC Software 5.3.0 is outdated. Please try UC Software 5.6.3 instead.

That is exactly my intention to try the latest load 5.6.3. I will update the post as soon as I pull the current build down to our tape tree.  Thank you

Hi,

 

Firmware load has been updated to UC Software 5.6.3 as suggested. Still no change on the VVX 500. 

 

After taking a closer look at the following files in the log, it read the following files including the app.log.

Any help or suggestion on this would be great. If you would like I could do the screen shot on the VVX 301 that does work with all the EFK softkeys showing, verses nothing from from the VVX 500.

Hello @ethomas,

This is a community forum where enthusiasts help each other and not some form of support.

 

You can either wait for someone to reply or simply follow the official Polycom escalation path.

 

As you have not even attached the configuration used its hard to guess. The EFK FAQ is pretty detailed and should be easy to follow.

 

I suggest you factory reset the phone and start from scratch. If this all fails and nobody answers you any follow up questions the next step is to open a support ticket.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter please post either your phone's MAC address or your Polycom devices serial so I can look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

If the unit is no longer within warranty please be prepared to Pay Per Incident / PPI. This is all outlined in detail here

Re: Polycom VVX 301 + VVX 500 EFK Flags

Hi Steffen,

 

As you indicated the EFK FAQ is pretty detailed, yes they are very detailed, and that is why OUR  softkey snippet has work on all previous versions of Polycom IP phone, both SIP, and MGCP Polycoms, including VVX series. I have been doing this for 15+ years, and working with Polycom during that entire time.

 

I take it from your comments that you don't really know what the issue is either. Our Polycom reseller knows less than we do so that is the reason I was reaching out in the dark to this fourm hoping someone would have some relative idea.

 

I appreciate you comments up to this point in time, I will open an official Polycom support ticket. Have a nice weekend.

Hello @ethomas,

I have written nearly all FAQ's within this community and I eat,sleep and breathe "Polycom" but as stated in my signature I am doing all of this in my spare time (i.e. on a Sunday today) as an example).

 

You have not attached any configuration used and only posted a log snippet showing errors. We cannot guess what you most likely are doing wrong and what is causing these error messages as we have not seen any configuration.

 

If you have such a long relationship with Polycom it should be super easy to get this into our North American support team.
