It seems the procedures to factory reset do not erase the configurations.
You would think that a documented procedure to "factory reset" or "restore to default" would do just that but my test phones keep rebooting back to their old configuration.
My test phones are SS5000 on 3.3.3.0069, SP450 on 126.96.36.19962 and VVX410 on 188.8.131.5268
I have tried the keypad number sequence reset procedure (it used to work), the web interface reset (ver 4.xx) and the phone's LCD menu reset procedures.
ALL procedures fail to return the phones to a factory settng. The phones "indicate" a factory reset is in process and then reboot 2 or 3 times and then re-register back to their old extension/account and go back online.
We are not doing ZTP. All of our phones must have two pieces of information entered "manually" to point to our provisioning server.
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I have followed many documented procedures on the web and in this forum.
welcome to the Polycom Community.
You claimed => here <= that this is only affecting a VVX 300 but worked on a SPIP.
I would assume your phone is picking up a DHCP option as a factory restore via Menu > Settings > Advanced > Administration Settings > Reset to Default => Reset to Factory will wipe the phone.
I am doing this multiple times a day and it has not failed me yet.
Also the UC Software 4.0.0 or later via the Web Interface method Utilities > Phone Backup & Restore > Global Settings > Restore phone to factory settings > Restore works.
Please use a spanned port and monitor the network traffic or simply check your log files for any configuration file loaded.
