Updating boot/provisioning server through provisioning files

Hello,

 

I know you can set/configure just about every other setting through the provisioning files. Is there a way to set the boot/provisioning server through the provisioning files?

 

Example: We have an old hosted phone system that a client is utilizing, and we are looking to migrate them to a new server. Originally the phones were all in the same office located locally, and the phones were configured for the server options via the phone itself. Now the phones are located in multiple locations, most of which are no longer local. Instead of having to go update the configuration at each phone, it would be nice to be able to update the boot/provisioning server settings through the provisioning file to allow the phones to migrate to the new server remotely.

 

Thanks!

 

Austin

Hello Austin,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The easiest way would be setting a DHCP Option 160 or 66 as explained => here <=

 

You can use configuration files but they are device.set files.

 

You would need:

 

<test device.set="1" device.prov.upgradeServer.set="1" device.prov.upgradeServer="your fqdn or IP" >

The complete parameters are documented in the Admin Guide and you can set the server type, username and a password.
