Peer firmware sharing - phone reset required after BAT update?

My client is executing a world-wide update of all of their IP phones to current firmware before migrating to CUCM 8.x

In the midst of this process, I have discovered that about half of the phones have peer firmware sharing turned on, while the other half do not.

I know that I can update the configuration of those phone using BAT

BAT->Phones->Update Phones->Query and then select the checkbox for Peer Firmware Enable.

The question is - MUST I reset the phones for the functionality to be active.

I have tested a BAT update with a single phone and the push is successful - in that the phone configuration changes to show Peer Firmware Sharing is enable WITHOUT a reset.

However, is the functionality really active?

Without labbing it up and using a sniffer to see where other phones get their images from, all I can go by is what the CUCM tells me.

Thoughts anyone?

Is the capability immediately available after the push or will only become active after a reset?

Peer firmware sharing - phone reset required after BAT update?

I am pretty sure you need to Apply the config /reset the phone in order for it to take affect as the phone needs to download the updated configuration from TFTP server.

thanks.  I was hoping to avoid that as the plants run 24 x 7

Re: Peer firmware sharing - phone reset required after BAT updat

But you will have to restart the phones anyway to upgrade them so they will take the new config.

Yes you must apply the configuration to push it to the phone
