Hi Gadacha,

Here is the CCM 5.X information you need to customize the Ringlist and background image's for 7911's and 7941/7961's;

Cisco Unified IP Phone Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0 (SCCP), Cisco IP Phone 7961G/7961G-GE and 7941G/7941G-GE

Customizing the Cisco Unified IP Phone

From this doc;


Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G Administration Guide for Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0 (SCCP)

Hope this helps!

Hi Daniel,

Have you tried this method?

Customizing and Modifying Configuration Files

You can modify configuration files (for example, edit the xml files) and add customized files (for example, custom ring tones, call back tones, phone backgrounds) to the TFTP directory. You can modify files and add customized files to the TFTP directory in Cisco IPT Platform Administration, from the TFTP Server File Upload page. Refer to Cisco IP Telephony Platform Administration Guide for information about how to upload files to the TFTP folder on a Cisco Unified CallManager server.

You can obtain a copy of the Ringlist.xml and List.xml files from the system using the following admin command-line interface (CLI) "file" commands:


file list*

file view*

file search*

file get*

file dump*

file tail*

file delete*

From this doc;


Hope this helps!

I tried the file get tftp Ringlist.xml command

and it appears to get the file and connect to the SFTP server but I cannot find the Ringlist.xml file anywhere. Keep in mind I know nothing about Linux
