Anyone know if it's possible to do a mass change of the tftp settings in CIPC 7.x. Need to move a group of 100 users to a new TFTP settings, and dont want to manually have to ask for users to change inside the client.
CIPC does support DHCP Option 150 on the network. Of course, that won't help you if you have manually assigned the TFTP servers when you deployed the software. Most people I have worked with use the static TFTP server assignment because, well, CIPC is mobile and isn't necessarily using corporate DHCP servers.
I am guessing you are part of the majority here. So, I think your best route is to look at the option of using a script of some type that is ran local on the user's PC and can edit the registry. The TFTP server information is stored in the registry (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Communicator). The parameters of interest are TFTPServer1 and TFTPServer2.
The mechanics of this approach would depend on how your systems folks manage software distribution and maintenance for desktop and laptop users. Particularly if your CIPC users are part of your mobile workforce. There are a wide variety of paths here.
