Hi. I have Call Manager 6.1 and will be changing all our 4 digit line numbers. I want to do this in bulk rather than have to change it on each phone. I have been trying the BAT with no success so I must be doing it wrong. What is the best way to change the line number on over 250 phones? The external mask also needs to change but that is all. Everything else stays the same.

Well, I know the NEW DN's and I have exported all of the current ones. I also know the MAC addresses of the phones from an export. I would like to just assign the new DN's to the existing phones and update them in bulk. Kind of like changing one by hand but I want to do this in bulk since I know the old DN, new DN and mac addresses.

I know that this is an old post and that the solution for CallManager 6.1 is to use BAT export ALL DETAILS option, delete phones, modify DNs in BAT, reimport using also ALL details. However, I would like to confirm if for CallManager 8.6 this is the only way also, or is there another way to do it in bulk for a large number of phones
