I provision the phones using the <mac address>.cfg that gets pulled from an http server.  Here is the config file:

<!-- Set admin password, time server, and what version of software to run -->
<!-- clean up Resync and trigger settings from initial provisioning -->
<!-- Set time zone and Day Light Savings time -->
<!-- XML Corporate Directory -->
<XML_Directory_Service_Name>Corporate Directory</XML_Directory_Service_Name>
<!-- Set Display Names, PBX and Voice Mail Number -->
<Station_Name>St. Louis</Station_Name>
<Station_Display_Name>St. Louis</Station_Display_Name>
<Text_Logo>St. Louis</Text_Logo>
<Background_Picture_Type>Download BMP Picture</Background_Picture_Type>
<!-- Setup extensions -->

This does not seem to work.  Everytime I reboot the phone the Default Ring for Extension 1 stays the same.

You have a typo, put the / on the ending Default_Ring_1_

I saw that also and changed it but it did not fix the situation.  After much tinkering I was never able to change the Default Ring from 1 using the XML provisioning file.  I did however change it using the file.  So instead of focusing on changing the Extensions Default Ring I decided to swap the Rings around.  Under the tab, Phone under Admin Advance you have a section where you assign each ring tone a number.  I just swapped the positions of the ring tone.  Here is the section of the XML Provision file that I used:


Normally Classic is assigned Ring 1 and Office is assigned Ring 10.  I just swapped them around.  I can only confirm that this works on the SPA942.
