Cisco IP Phone Power Save Settings

Unanswered Question
Feb 13th, 2007


Is it possible to change "Display Idle Timeout", "Display On Time", "Display On Duration", "Display Idle Timeout" in CCM for all the phones?

I know this can be done indivially from CCM-> Phone Configuration but what if you have hunderds of phones, I would like to select all phones in the pool and change once instead of going one by one for all phones.

Thank you,


I have this problem too.

Currently there is no menu option to get this done. To change the setting on a clusterwide basis, manually modify the file IP

Phones Rules.xml file located at:

C:\Program Files\Cisco\Bin\Xmltemp\XML

Within the xml file, scroll almost to the bottom and look for the lines that

contain "displayOnTime", "displayOnDuration", and "displayIdleTimeout".

Modify the value contained in the xx:xx to the

desired settings.
