IP Communicator Free-form device name

Unanswered Question
Feb 22nd, 2008


I was wondering, is it possible to change device name of an already installed IP Communicator from the command line on a Windows PC?

So far, i could only do it this way, but it means a new install:

msiexec /fa "<IPComm.msi file>" FREEFORMDEVICENAME="Name".

I have this problem too.

Choosing the correct interface is critical because Cisco IP Communicator uses the MAC address of the associated network interface to identify its device name to Cisco CallManager in the same manner as hardware-based Cisco IP Phones. Therefore, every time Cisco IP Communicator starts, it verifies that the associated interface is still installed in the machine. This prevents users from modifying Cisco IP Communicator's original device name.

What is the point of having Freeformdevicename option then?
