We run cm4.2(1). As 7912's will be ceased soon we are trialling 7911's.
How long before a 7911 should load with its own firmware once connected to the network? Our network is fine but I had the phone plugged in a good 40mins before it upgraded and presented itself a a usable device. During this time it was constantly resetting itself. It seems a very long time - especially as we have 1500 of these phones to roll out in the new year!
If it is 8.0(1) which shipped with many CCM 4.2 CD's there were many bugs (this should only take a few minutes);
The 8.0(1) firmware release has been made available on Cisco Unified CallManager installation CDs; however, it will not be made available on Cisco.com due to additional bugs filed during final testing. Cisco recommends that you instead use the updated 8.0(2) SR2 (or something newer) firmware load, which is now available on Cisco.com. This recommendation is limited to this specific firmware release and has no bearing on any other software or firmware available on Cisco Unified CallManager CDs.
The load file is 8.0.2. - This is the latest isn't it? We have no bin file for a 7911 but there is a SCCP11.8-02-0s.load file on the call manager. Could this be causing the problem?
What file is it exactly we need for a working piece of firmware? (we are fairly new to call manager)
I left a further 7911 loading overnight and it still hadn't registered or loaded this morning (!) I had to recycle the power/network connection and then it loaded, as you said, within minutes. Strange!
So it seems that the phone and call manager are fine - I just don't understand why they weren't loading within minutes the first time.
We have a 3rd party coming in next week who will be supplying our switches and phones for the roll out so I think I'll bring the issue up with them as well.
i was trying to register 7911 and 7961 for the first time through a 128 wan link!
I noticed phones cycled without registering with CCM so i sniffed traffic from and to my phone.I discovered sccp11 file contains a list of files that phone had to download(UNLESS IT YET CONTAINS) from CCM including a Jar file very Huge!
The first time phone try to register it downloads:
If the download requires too much time the phone is timeouted (i don't know why) and restarts the download (from the sccp11 file)
