Setting up a provisioning server

Now, before someone gives me the stock links to the documentaion (which I have), I would like to know how to do a couple of things.

 

  1. What is the latest firmware for a SoundStation IP (with the 00:04 starting MAC address) to use with SIP and Cisco 8.6.2.
  2. What files do i need to place in the FTP server (which i can already see my test device contacting) to get it to the right BootBlock, Updater/BootRom, and application.
  3. Correct an improperly upgraded device that currently has
  • Bootblock - 3.0.2
  • Updater - 5.0.1
  • Application - 4.0.11

The device does not function properly, IE it will not bring up a web interface at all.

Re: Setting up a provisioning server

Hello Daren Daigle,


I can only apologize as I could have sworn I read SoundPoint instead of SoundStation.

 

The good news is the SoundStation IP 6000 is compatiple with the Cisco CUCM.

 

For this you need:

 

  • UC Software 4.0.11
  • Polycom Updater 5.0.11 

You do not need:

 

  • Upgrade the BootBlock

The Web Interface is accessed via: HTTP://IP_of_Phone or HTTPS:// P_of_Phone

 

Nothing else is needed. The Password and Username are documented in the FAQ that you are already familiar with.

 

If the above fails please use Google Chrome or Firefox instead.

 

If this all fails you are welcome to wait for other community members to further answer your post.

 

If this fails please contact your Polycom reseller for further support in order to raise a support ticket as they need to do this for you.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter please post your phone's MAC address so I can look up who would be able to support you.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Re: Setting up a provisioning server

Hello Daren Daigle,


welcome to the Polycom Community.

 

Could I kindly inform you that the SoundPoint IP is unsupported for the Cisco Call manager ?

 

Only the SoundStation IP, the SoundStructure VoIP card and the RealPresence Trio have been interoperability tested against the CUCM Platform.


Now that is cleared up the community's VoIP FAQ contains this post here:

 

Oct 7, 2011 Question: What SIP or UC Software Version or BootROM Version is supported by my Phone?

Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

In your case UC Software 4.0.11 and Updater Version 5.0.11 is the latest at present.

 

Oct 7, 2011 Question: How can I setup my Phone / Provisioning / Download / Upgrade / Update / Downgrade Software?
Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

The above shows in detail how to setup a provisioning server.

 

Mar 08, 2013 QuestionWhat files does my phone download or upload and why?

Resolution: Please check => here <=

 

The above explains what files are down / uploaded and why.

Re: Setting up a provisioning server

Thank you for the stock answer I have found about 30 times searching.

 

The documents provided do not tell me what the correct bootblock is correct for and SoundStation IP 6000.

 

Also, i am not getting a web interface.  If i type http:/ipaddress/asdf, i get a response about authorization failed and then i get a link to a http:/ipaddress/login.htm and when i click it, i get page not found.

 

I have done things like a factory reset, I have formated the filesystem and allowed it to download everything again.  I still continue to NOT get the correctly functioning device.
