Polycom contacts directory update without reboot.

Hello,

 

I've tried to find a solution to update the contacts dir on the phone without reboot ( <mac-address>-directory.xml ).

I have a polycom IP321 witch is running 4.0.3 Firmware version and I've tried with "sip notify polycom-check-cfg extension", without success to update without reboot.

I want to know if there is o option to update the contacts without reboot for this model or Polycom VVX 500.

 

Best Regards,

Constantin

Re: Polycom contacts directory update without reboot.

Hello Constantin,

The directory file is only read when the phone boots so the local directory is only updated on a reboot.

 

This has been working as designed since day one.

 

I suggest to simply utilize something like active directory or similar if you always want an updated directory.

If I'm going to use active directory LDAP, when a user it will save a contact from the phone where it will be save ? (the number that was added from the phone or the favirites entry )

Re: Polycom contacts directory update without reboot.

Hello,

 

I've tryed to set up a LDAP contacts directory using this tutorial ...

http://community.polycom.com/t5/VoIP/FAQ-Setup-an-openLDAP-server/td-p/75035

When I check the phones logs is say LDAP is not enabled.

I enabled in the sip.cfg and features.cfg but I don't know why I still get that message from my phone.

The phone model that I use is Polycom 320 and firmware 3.3.5 ...

 

Thanks

Re: Polycom contacts directory update without reboot.

Hello Constantin,


From UC Software onwards we no longer use a SIP.cfg or Phone.cfg as explained => here <=

 

You can call your configuration files what you want but you must not use pre-UC Software 3.3.0 sip,cfg / phone1.cfg files.

 

You mention a features.cfg file which is most likely in the \config sub folder but these files are example templates as explained => here <= and are not automatically loaded.

 

I would suggest you check your logs for errors.
