Backup TFTP again

I am trying to make a backup TFTP scenario work. I have a CM3.1(4) cluster, and want to ensure device config files can be loaded if the main TFTP server is unavailable. (A customer requires this)

I have Option 150 configured as an array on MSFT DHCP, with two IP addresses for two CM running TFTP. I have reloaded a phone to pick up the new DCHP details. When I look in the phone network config I only see one TFTP server address, and if I disconnect the first TFTP server, reset a phone and trace the packets coming out of the phone, it never tries to contact the 2nd TFTP server. I can see in a trace of the DHCP dialogue that two TFTP server addresses are being sent to the phone in the DHCP lease.

An earlier entry in this forum and a URL on CCO say this is a valid config.

Am I missing something? Is there something else you need to do to get a phone to load from more than one TFTP server?

The load images in the phone are P00303010405 PC03P030

Thanks for any pointers or help

Re: Backup TFTP again

Go to the TFTP Service config in ccm admin. Enter in the path to the shared TFTPPath folder on your alternate TFTP server.

Thanks for the reply, I looked at this page before posting the note, what format do you enter the TFTPPath details in? What does the string look like?

Thanks

Re: Backup TFTP again

Hi Tim,

I was not aware 3.1.4 supported a dual TFTP configuration using arays. I thought 3.2 was the earliest release for this. I have a 3.1.4b installation using two TFTP servers split between two device pools - no option 150 aray support.
