7912 with CME

I follow the instructions to change the background image in a 7912 with a CME v4.0.3, I have the gkdefault.cfg and xxx.logo generated with the bmp2logo application, I have uploaded to flash and use the commands:

tftp-server flash:xxx.logo

tftp-server flash:test.logo

I reset the 7912 IP phones but does not change the background image, so I put a tftp debug and it says the following:

TFTP: Looking for Spain/gkdefault.cfg

TFTP: Sending error 1 No such file

So I created a directory named Spain containing the gkdefault.cfg and xxx.logo with the respective command:

tftp-server flash:Spain/xxx.logo

tftp-server flash:Spain/test.logo

but the background image doesn?t change for the personal company logo, any idea what is missing??

Thanks in advise.


Re: 7912 with CME

1. Download the SCCP Software Package Zip file.

2. Create the bitmap of the image to load to the phone

-The bitmap must be 88x27 pixels in size

-The bitmap must be black and white

-The bitmap must be saved as a monochrome image type

3. Convert the bitmap into a logo image using bmp2logo.exe

-bmp2logo x input_file output.logo

where x is an arbitrary number

-example: bmp2logo 10 cisco.bmp cisco.logo

4. Create a text file that will be used to build the ld or gk cfg file

-The file can be any name

-Must contain the upgradelogo key

-The SampleLogo.txt can be used as a template.

NOTE: the image number defined in step 3 must be used in this text file

5. Create the cfg file, use the cfgfmt.exe

-cfgfmt SampleLogo.txt lddefault.cfg

NOTE: if the same image is desired on all 7905's and 7912, use the

lddefault.cfg and

gkdefault.cfg files.

6. Move the .logo file into the TFTPPATH directory

7. Move the lddefault.cfg or gkdefault.cfg into the COUNTRY specific folder.

-The ld or gk cfg files will need to be in at least


NOTE: The cfg file will need to be copied to each COUNTRY directory

supported by the CM.

8. Reboot the 7905 or 7912. The new image should appear on the idle screen.

Re: 7912 with CME

Thanks carenas123 for your answer, but could you please be more specific and tell exactly the country directory where I have to copy the files?? Give me the complete route, please?? I remember you that it is a CME, and I do not know how to copy files in different site that the flash.

Thanks for your help
