Good Day All,
I am trying to load an 8961 Cisco SIP phone into Cisco Call Manager version 7.0.2
The idea behind the task is for the phone to get is SEP<max>.cnf.xml file from the call manager.
Once I have this file on the phone, I hope to manually configure the phone to work with a third party IP PBX application.
Hopefully, getting call manager to load the phone will be a matter of downloading and installing the phone load software for the 8961.
Is that correct please?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
You will need a newer version of UCM to get support for this phone. The minimum is 7.1(3b) I believe.
As for support with a third-party PBX: good luck with that. The phones use proprietary SIP extensions to control a fair amount of its behavior.
