Is it possible to use BAT to disable a large number devices to disable the speaker phone. Need to do this from an external CSV file but cannot find the heading to accomplish this task.

Mass Update Speakerphone

Hi John,

The field would be under;

Product Specific Information

Disable SpeakerPhone

Check this check box to disable the speakerphone.

But the .csv would only be used to identify the phones that you are updating;

Using a Custom File to Update Phones

To create a custom file to search for phones to update, use the following procedure.

Before You Begin

1. Identify the devices that you need to update.

2. Create a text file that lists one of these options on a separate line

MAC addresses and device names

Directory numbers


Note You can have MAC addresses and device names in the same custom file, but ensure that directory numbers are in a separate custom file.


3. Upload the text file to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server.

Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > Phones > Update Phones > Use Custom File.

The Update Phones Custom Configuration window displays.

Step 2 In the Update Phones where drop-down list box, choose the type of custom file that you have created from the following criteria:

Device Name (includes MAC addresses)

Directory Number

Description

Step 3 In the list of custom files, choose the filename of the custom file for this update.

Step 4 Click Find.

If the query results are not what you expected, you can change the custom file selections.


To complete the procedure for updating phones, continue to the "Choosing the Update Parameters" section.

Choosing the Update Parameters

After you have defined the query or custom file to search for phones, use this procedure to choose parameters and define values for updating phones.

Procedure


Step 1 In the Update Phones Query window, click Next. The Update Phones shows the type of query that you chose. If you want to change the type of query, click Back.

Step 2 Choose the "Logout Users before Update" check box to log out the users prior to the update. You can also use this option to bulk log out users if no fields are chosen.

Step 3 Specify the setting that you want to update for all the records that you have defined in your query or custom file. You can choose multiple parameters to update. See the "Field Descriptions for Updating Phones" section for descriptions of parameters.

Step 4 In the Value field for the checked parameter, enter the new value or choose a value from the list box.

Step 5 In the Reset/Restart Phones area, check one of the following choices:

Don't Reset/Restart phones—To reset/restart devices at a later time.

Reset phones—To reset (power-cycle) the phones

Restart phones—To reset phones without power-cycling

Step 6 Update the required phone parameters. See Table 7-1 lists the field descriptions for updating phones.

Step 7 To create a job for updating the records, click Submit.

Step 8 Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and activate this job.
