CDP or Voice VLAN config with third party switches.

I have the following problem. I have to register a lot of IP phones but the switches are Etherasys. So I'm looking for more intelligent solution to configure the voice vlan of the phones. I have two ideas but for now the both are unrealized:

1. There is protocol on the Enterasys known as CDP but I think it can't help me a lot. In this way of thinking the only good way is to broadcast l2 CDP packets from dedicated host.

2. If there is a way to develop default file (like for ATA atadefault.cfg) for the IP phones which states that VLAN 100 is their administrative vlan and they can memorize it that will be great.

I'm expecting any good ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
