CP-8945 - upgrade without call manager via TFTP


I have always upgraded CP phones by placing the relevant files onto my tftp system, holing down # on the phone whilst plugging in the PoE connection and then typing the reset key sequence, after which the phone pops off and finds the files and upgrades


I have a CP-8945 with SCCP I am trying the same thing, I have downloaded the zip file and placed the 10 or so files onto my tftp system..


first problem is that the # plus sequence doesn't seem to do anything, the lights don't go off as describe by Cisco so I waited until the phones booted and di a soft key factory reset


still the phone doesn't upgrade like I usually see with other models


according to Cisco you should be able to upgrade without the need for a call manager as see in the link below




If a Cisco Unified Communications Manager is not available to load the installer program, the following files are available to load the firmware. (for SCCP firmware) (for SIP firmware)


What am I doing wrong please ?
