CCME 4.1(0) and 7945G

Unanswered Question
Aug 15th, 2008

IOS version 12.4(15T) supports 7945G.

However, when trying to specify phone type it's not found:

RTR(config)#ephone 2

RTR(config-ephone)#type ?

7902 Cisco IP Phone 7902


7940 Cisco IP Phone 7940

7941 Cisco IP Phone 7941

7941GE Cisco IP Phone 7941GE

7960 Cisco IP Phone 7960

I don't get it. Is there something I did not do? Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Did you verify that you have the following files on flash:









From what i was reading the 7945 should be compatible with cme 4.1. Also try configuring the mac-address of the phone first, and it may populate the phone type by itself. The phone should register if you have the above mentioned firmware in the tftp-server statements in your config.

Hope that helped

I have those files, and the phone appears to be registered. The files are specified in tftp to the location in flash. I also have the load specified in "telephony-service":

load 7945 SCCP45.8-3-2S

The phone appears to work okay, but according to the documentation I should be able to specify the phone, but it does not show up in the list.

There it is. Right in the command reference!

Hmm. Looks like to code is too early for my taste.

Do I really need the keyword command anyway?

I did not mention the whole reason for this is because I think it may be the cause of the wrong timestamp on the 7945.

Hi Timothy,

I do think that not being able to enter the phone type may be causing the time issue.

This was really covered nicely by Paul in this thread :)

Hope this helps!
