I have to install several hundreds of IP phones that eventuallly will register to a central CCM cluster. Unfortunately, due to limited bandwidth between the branches and the CO I have to skip the online firmware download. So, I have to find a way to make the phones load the correct image while offline. The solution I'm trying to pull off is pretty much the following:
- I see the image used by CCM
- I set up a DHCP/TFTP server on my PC
- I put the image and an appropriate XMLDefault.cnf.xml file on the TFTP's directory
After all that, the phone does load the XMLDefault.cnf.xml and searches for the image specified but...without success! I guess I'm doing smth wrong in declaring the image name; do you have any suggestions? Any other solutions maybe?
And one last question: the 7961 image that is available on cisco.com for CCM 5.0(4) has a different name format (cmterm-7941_7961-sccp.8-2-1.cop.sgn) than the one declared as a device default on the CCM (SCCP41.8-0-3S). Will it ever work or I'm trying in vain?
Thanks a lot,
