This section covers the recommended initial configuration actions for a new system. Many of the settings are set by default, however they should still be checked.
Initial Configuration Processes
The processes marked (!) in this list are ones which, if the setting is changed, require the system to be restarted in order for the new setting to take effect. Changing them may also cause other settings to reset back to default values. These are additional reasons why these settings should be sets as part of initial system configuration.
1.Set the System Mode (!)
The system can operate in either PBX or Key mode.
2.Set the Country (!)
The correct country setting sets a range of internal settings, especially relating to the operation of trunks, that are otherwise not adjustable through the configuration.
3.Set the Default Language (!)
The system's language for phone displays and voicemail prompts default to the best match to the country setting. However it should still be checked.
4.Set the Number of Lines
This option is used for Key mode systems. If changed it will overwrite existing button programming.
5.Set the Outside Line Prefix (!)
This option is used for PBX mode systems. A prefix is not required but 0 or 9 can be used if required.
The use of and capacity of some features requires licenses added to the configuration.
7.Change the Network Settings (!)
By default, if connected to a customer network the system requests IP address settings as a DHCP client.
8.Set the Emergency Numbers
The correct emergency numbers for the country must be set to ensure that they are excluded from any outgoing call restrictions that may be setup later.
9.Select Music on Hold
10.Adjust Automatic Line Selection
For users on a Key mode system, if the user simply goes off-hook to make a call, the system needs to use automatic line selection to determine which of the user's available line or intercom buttons is used for the call.
