A 7941 phone just went into the "ip configuing" state.
plugged another phone into that network cable and that phone worked fine.
Plugged the malfuntioning phone into another network jack - still "ip configuing".
Reset phone via Call Manager - still malfuntioning. Also attempted to reset phone to factory defaults.
The Settings Access in the Call Manager is "Restricted". Changed to "Enabled" but it did not register on the phone so could not check DHCP.
Any ideas? Is it just broken? The maintenance on this phone expired 5 days ago. Wouldn't you know it.
Hope all is well my friend
This is likely an error related to a "sticky" DHCP config or
something of that sort. The Network side of the house is not
my area of expertise (not much is these days) but we do have
this type of thing happen on occasion, especially when a phone
is moved during our network re-design phase. I really doubt the
phone is "toast". I would try to remove it from the CUCM config
and let it sit on a shelf for a few days before firing it back up
my bet is that it will be just fine.
