    Any update on this? Just tried grabbing the latest version and I don't see a way of editing the line labels... :)

    I feel stupid. I did the update from the "End Point Configuration" module and assumed that was enough.

    Thanks again for the rapid response.

    Normally yes. But every once in a while I have to fork it away as I add features specific to endpoint manager and not the backend library.

    Confused about changes to Polycom provisioning

    It seems like the way Polycom phones are provisioned has completely changed in the last year. Until now, I have supplied the cfg options in a separate custom cfg file according to Polycom's best practices... This was accomplished by adding the file to the CONFIG_FILES directive of the template and worked fine in EPM

    Unfortunately that EPM version is causing problems when attempting to provision other models as mentioned earlier in the thread and I'm preparing for an upgrade. The new provisioning method is a mystery to me - is there any documentation out there explaining the new way? Will the old phone configs work with the new EPM module and how does one go about incorporating the old custom cfg file to the new templates?

    What's the best way to capture the config that is existing on the phone and import it to the endpoint manager so that I can start making changes and try and sort through some of the things that do and do not work? Does anyone have a standard config that mirrors the aastra scripts?

    Log into the Aastra phone's web gui. Go to trouble shooting (bottom left). Then click Get server.cfg. This should be a good start.

    thanks for the info. I currently am running the aastra scripts 2.3.1 and want to start from here. Can I grab one of the mac.cfg files from the tftpboot dir? I think that should be the same thing. Anyway, what I am looking for is a way, or someone who has been successful with getting Endpoint Manager to function almost like the Aastra Scripts without the bugs. Also, what firmware are people seeing as the best solution for park and voicemail functions. I have seen lots of buzz about the newer firmware not working.

    The mac file will work too.

    I'll be interested in your success as I too would like to move toward the endpoint manager but I've never used it.

    I have tried installing on a hosted server at a distant location, but when I select to discover phoned on the system, nothing is found. I have an Aastra 67571 on the system, but it is not discovered. I notice that the address for the server shows with /24 at the end. Is that a port number, and does it need to be opened at the server firewall?

    /24 is the subnet mask. You'd be best to read about the Internet Protocol Stack to fully understand that (I took several Cisco classes when I was in high school).

    You have to have nmap installed. It probably told you that, but it won't discover a phone that doesnt have an ip. and the search ip needs to be the internal network

    Documentation is all over the polycom website, It's never in one master file. So me sending you what's changed is a huge waste of my time (no offense).

    You can add the custom file to the end of the mac.cfg file just like before

    I'm having problems with a Polycom 335 which keeps getting stuck in a reboot loop.

    I removed the firmware from Endpoint Manager then tried installing new firmware, which seems to have helped but it doesn't ring now, so I tried reinstalling the firmware and I get

    Downloading firmware...

    Checking MD5sum of Package...
    Firmware MD5 didn't match

    When I click to install it. Help! What can I do to help figure this out?

    Uninstall the brand and then reinstall. Then install the firmware

    Just completed that. Also had to manually purge the tftpboot folder (of the Polycom files). Works now.

    This is a GREAT extension. Thank you, tm1000, for providing it!! It saves so much time when setting up/reconfiguring phones. It's awesome!

    Yes. It works fine. It's in the new beta-ish version of endpoint manager

    PS Updater was actually in 3.3.1

    Hello all.

    I have just finished working on the new version of endpoint manager which is now multi-tenant. Meaning you can do everything you did before but now you can add specific settings to each phone such as an external SIP server, or static IPs!

    Let me know if anyone wants to test it.

    I don't know if this is a stupid question or not, but anyway...

    All my phones need mostly the same settings. Dial plan, logos, etc will all be the same. But I would like to vary the unused line keys per phone so I can have BLFs and speed dials relevant to the location/user.

    What's the best way to do this as things are at the moment? Just create individual templates per phone and deal with the maintenance?
    Or is there a way to include other templates (or config files) so I can break things up a bit?

    Thanks TM1000,
    I'm looking forward to giving this a try.
