Provisioning personal directory differences between spa9xx and spa502G

I have a system set up to provision personal directorys on the spa9xx series phones. This is an example of the syntax used to do this from a linux terminal: wget --post-data "22765=n%3DOffice1;p%3D123456&22701=n%3D" http://ipaddressofphone/pdir.spa. This will provision the directory of the phone with an entry for Office1 with phone number 123456.

I am trying to use the same system on a spa502G but it just returns a 404 not found error. Does anyone know if Cisco have removed the pdir.spa script from the phone, if they have renamed it or moved it?

Any ideas on this greatly appreciated.

That's interesting. I was trying to provision the personal directory to the SPA500 series, but I have not found anything.

Really, there is no way to deploy it in the same manner we can deploy all other configuration data?

Dear Sir;

It works with pdir.csc

It sounds good, but would not be more "logical" to deploy this type of data in the same way we deploy phone configuration parameters, through provisioning files published over HTTP/S ?

The tool you are using to push the data to the phones is self-made... would not be great to have a tool "officially supported" by Cisco to create and manage the provisioning files?

If I can make a suggestion, I guess that the development effort to make such a tool would be well worth it. Today managing provisioning files "by hand" is actually a pretty error-prone job, so who needs to automate this process is forced to build a self-made tool. I think it would be a great help to have at least a framework (something more than the SPC tool) to start from.

Anyone else thinks it would be useful?
