Hi

Are those the versions set in firmware defaults?

See if you can find the readme for your particular version like this one (http://www.cisco.com/web/software/282074295/42654/cucm-readme-715bsu3.pdf). You might find it if you go through the download process for that version, near the last steps, or just google it.

Near the end of the doc (page 12 in that example) it lists firmware for that version. First check that the files exist on your TFTP server, then set the defaults back to something sensible.

Also note this on page 3 of that document:

For all SCCP and SIP firmware upgrades from firmware release versions earlier than 8.3(3) to version 8.5(2)SR1 or greater, you must first upgrade your firmware to version 8.5(2). Once you have upgraded to version 8.5(2), you can upgrade your IP Phone to version 8.5(2)SR1 or later. Refer to the

Firmware Versions in this Release section of this document to determine the firmware load provided in this Service Update

THis is a well documented issue, search the forums if you want more info on it - it's possible that someone has been trying to work around that issue which is how you've ended up with these odd settings for the firmware.

Hi

Each version of CM includes firmware tested by Cisco with that version. Unless you experience specific issues with a particular handset you should stick with what is supplied.
