I am running callmanager 4.1(3)es99. I would like to creat a limited phone ringer selection for a group of users and apply it to those few phones but do not know how. I do not want to change the Ringlist.xml file as that would affect all users on the cluster. I would like to limit the number of ringer types for just a small group. Any Ideas?

Hi Jerry,

Here is a way of preventing specific users from changing the Ring Selection. This is the only way to impact only this group and not all users;

Users are unable to change the Ring Volume/ and Ring Type if you disable the Settings Access parameter on the Phone configuration page. Complete these steps:

From the Cisco CallManager Administration page, choose Device > Phone, and click the phone for which you want to prevent a ring type change.

Choose Disabled for the Settings Access parameter under the Product Specific Configuration section.

When Settings Access is enabled, you can change the phone network configuration, ring type, and volume on the phone. When you disable Settings Access, the Settings button is completely disabled and no options appear when you press the button. Also, you cannot adjust the **ringer volume or save any volume settings. The option Restricted is available in Cisco CallManager version 4.1(3) and later. When you change Settings Access to Restricted, you can only access User Preferences and volume settings. By default, Settings Access is enabled.

From this doc;

Hope this helps!
