We uploaded the newly modified files to the "Desktops/320x212x16" directory. We are still unable to see images from the phone. We are getting a selections unavailable. Does anyone know how to ensure that the directories and files can be accessed by the user\CCMService, which is used by the TFTP service. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

There is a space in your list.xml and it's right in the middle of the filename.


Check your list file

Yes, the problem has been resolved. When I would list the list.xml file at the command prompt. It would list an extremely large file. I had to create the file within word(not notepad) and save it as an xml. Then it worked fine. I hope this helps.

I created the 2 .png files and list.mxl file and TFTP'd them in the desktops/320x212x16 directory with the proper sizes.

I created the list.xml file in word as well.

I uploaded the files to all my servers and restarted the service on all my servers.

I also changed the quote marks since I cut and pasted from the Cisco website (I saw that somewhere else).

I am still getting "selections available"

If no selections are unavailable it means that there must be something wrong with the List.xml file can you upload the list.xml file? You have to upload the List.xml file in two folders for 7965 and 7945

Desktops/320x212x16 etc
