We just recently purchased our Cisco CME on a 3945 ISR with 130 7900 series phones all connected to some ESW 540 and 520 switches. We are having problems with the 540's which force a reboot of the switches as we make changes. Sometimes all the phones come back up and sometimes they dont. So that led me to ask, is there some graphic software already out there that could read the running config or something else to see how many phones are supposed to be running and check to see if they are up or not? I just simply want to know after I reset a switch which phones came back instead of walking all over my office and looking individually at each handset. Plus soon we will be deploying more phones in different cities in our other offices and in that case I wont be able to see what the phone display.
I would prefer if it has a nice GUI but I suppose I could deal with a command line interface if I had to.
I ran a search but couldnt find my answer.
Thanks for your help,
