I had a previous forum entry regarding the device listing under User / Phone add, and someone recommended me to do BAT processing. After looking into it, it appeared to be much easier than I had anticipated.
I downloaded the BAT file that allows me to select various fields and export as the csv. First, I attempted to setup phones using the following fields:
MAC Address, Description, User ID, Directory Number 1
I would enter all of the information, and my hopes would be that it would automatically create the Directory Number based on what was in that field, and then automatically associate it with that field. I was wrong, and was receiving error messages stating that "Line number 1 is not configured on the Line template."
So, I decided to do the following:
1) Create batch file for MAC Address, Description, User ID, Owner User ID... run this batch as Phone Add.
2) Create batch file for MAC Address, Description, Directory Number 1, Display 1... run this batch as Line add.
Will this create the phones, tie the user accounts into the phones, create the phone lines, and tie the phone lines to their specific phone? I'm attempting to run the batch now, however I appear that we're receiving a licensing error, "Allocated licenses consumed by used and pending" which my co-worker is working on the licensing... not sure if what he's working on is related.
Ideally you will need to create individual Phone Template for each phone type that you will be adding.
Here you assign the device CSS, Device-Pool, MRG all the common setting for the phone-type you will be inserting.
For this reason it is best to create individual BAT files for each phone type also.
In order to create a line-template, open the device template you created, and click on the add line option on the left of the page.
This is essentially the line-template, assign a template name, and configure all the settings that you wish to assign to all your DNs for this device-template, such as Partition, CSS, VM Profile, Call-Forward CSS.
Hope this helps.
