Unanswered Question

Hello,

I declared a background image of my company logo on my CUCM in V6.1

But i must select this background image in the IP Phone to make it appear.

My question: Is it possible to make it appear by default when i declare the IP telephone in the CUCM ?

And is it possible to block access to the management background image by the user while retaining ring settings?

Thank you

no, you cannot push the image when creating the phone.

access is either blocked or limited to phone customization but is no more granular.

You can take a look at our application Cisco Phone Designer in the Widgets section

Phone designer only works on a one to one basis (with user id's), not systemwide. There was a rumor that you can change the default image in the phone's flash by re-flashing the phone. Anyone know if that's possible?

Provided that you formatted the correct image sizes and template in the list.xml file, all you need to do is select it from the menu on each phone. Go to: Settings > User Preferences > Background Images.

How to create a background image for IP Phones with CUCM 5.x/CUCM6.0"


This is an example. Please use the correct settings for the phone you use. The settings are mentioned below.


- Create a file "List.xml" (this one is not yet on a freshly installed CCM) with the following format:



FTP:Desktops/320x196x4/tn-GoIPbig.png"

URL="TFTP:Desktops/320x196x4/GoIPbig.png"/>


The name of the file is case-sensitive and it starts with a big L!



There can be up to 50 entries in a List file. The List.xml has to be done per phonetype...


- Create backgroung image files


"tn-xxxx.png" is the thumbnail image - must be 80 pixels (width) X 49 pixels (height).

"xxxx.png" is the "real" pic, must be 320 pixels (width) X 196 pixels (height).


You can create this files using the freeware tool "ImRe".


- Upload the file "List.xml" to the tftp folder, directory "Desktops/320x196x4" *


- Upload the files tn-xxxx.png and xxxx.png to the folder "Desktops/320x196x4". *


* look up the values below!


- Restart tftp service


- restart phone


- enjoy


(You can sniff on the network to see what directory a certain phonetype is looking for).


Here are the phonetypes with the coordinates (size, directory in CUCM)..



7941 / 7961


Full size image- 320 pixels (width) X 196 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image- 80 pixels (width) X 49 pixels (height).

Directory "Desktops/320x196x4"



7942 / 7962


Full size image-320 pixels (width) X 196 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image-80 pixels (width) X 49 pixels (height).

Directory "/Desktops/320x196x4"



7945 / 7965


Full size image-320 pixels (width) X 212 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image-80 pixels (width) X 53 pixels (height).

Directory "/Desktops/320x212x16"



7970 / 7971


Full size image-320 pixels (width) X 212 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image-80 pixels (width) X 53 pixels (height).

Directory "Desktops/320x212x12"



7975


Full size image-320 pixels (width) X 216 pixels (height).

Thumbnail image-80 pixels (width) X 53 pixels (height).

Directory "/Desktops/320x216x16"



If a background image just does not want to show up, it's a good idea to browse to the phone web site and check the Console Log for failures (xml parsing, ...)


MY PHONE IS 7961

In the cisco documentation it is stating that


"...ensure that the directories and files can be accessed by the user/CCMService


How to do that?
