Changing background image on all phones over common phone settings

Hello there.

 

I had setup possibility for phones to individually change background image.

I badly need option to change all at once.

I did try to change standard common phone setting.

Unchecked option that user can change background image.

Put the correct file name of image into background image filed  (in this particular case image.png), and check check box overide common setings.

After applying , nothing has change.

 

Where i did wrong

Common Phone Profile -> Background Image file name with no path, and uncheck Enable End User Access to Phone Background Image.

Bulk to apply it to all the phones of a specific Phone Type and apply config

Bulk to restart every phone of a specific Phone Type.

Done, for 7911, 7962 and 7945...

FYI, that option only works

FYI, that option only works for 89XX and 99XX phones.

There are hundreds, and hundreds of posts on CSC about this, please search for answers before posting a question.

Thanks for correct answer. I

Thanks for correct answer.

 

I was searching for answer, even found one You had post. But there was no mention of this limitation for 89xx and 99xx phones only.

 

So, there is no way to change background image in one go for 79xx phones?

I am trilled if this above is true. over 3000 phones to change.

Thanks

Not just configuring

Not just configuring something in CUCM as you expected, possible methods (Free methods) require more work and some coding. Again, all have been discussed plenty of times before at CSC.

Or, you can buy a product for this: http://www.ipcommute.co.uk/

I have 7945s and 7965s mostly

I have 7945s and 7965s mostly on my network on CUCM 8.6.2.23900-10.  I checked and this is available in CUCM 10.0.1 also.  I created a common phone profile and unchecked the "Enable End User Access to Phone  Background Image Setting" then scrolled down to the bottom under "Product Specific Configuration Layout" and in the "Background Image" field I added "CompanyBG.png" which is the file name of the background image I wanted displayed that already is hosted on my TFTP server on each of my servers, I didn't include the path, and I checked the box and saved the profile.  Then I ran a batch job to change all the common phone profiles for all my phones and did a mass restart.  Now users get the approved company background image and can't change it.
