So i am new to working with and deploying polycom phones. I am currently trying to get a basic provsioning server working. The phones are vvx300. i am trying to update and configure are on software version 220.127.116.1174. I downloaded and extracted the 5.5.0 ucs sotware. I have modified the 000000000000.cfg, sip-basic.cfg, reg-phonemac.cfg and site cfg. Do i need to do a step upgrade before it can use the latest software? Is there a file i am missing thats suposed to be there. The provsioning server document does not drill down into to much detail.
welcome to the Polycom Community.
I am unsure what document you are referring to but the community's VoIP FAQ contains this post here:
Oct 7, 2011 Question: What is the relevance of the 000000000000.cfg or <mac>.cfg?

The above explains how you utilize these files to load other files.
You can simply upgrade / downgrade to the software you wish in one step.

Thanks, I was able to get the phone to update. I did see it looking for a license file in the FTP logs and I find the post for the free site license file. Will it check the FTP server for a license file on all versions of UC software or are there versions that don't look for it. I just want to make sure I don't need to change the software again.
