This method requires the telephone system to act as both the DHCP and file provisioning server for the phone. The objective is then to configure the phone as a DHCP client. It will then learn the IP address, IP netmask, IP gateway and file provisioning server parameters from the IP Office system.
This method applies to:
•New 1200 Series phones. These phones come up with a special basic boot loader called BootC.
1.Connect the phone to the LAN port. If the LAN port supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) the phone will start up immediately. Otherwise connect a separate power supply.
•The phone comes up with Unistim firmware 06XXC7M or higher. The firmware name is briefly displayed on the screen at startup. If an earlier version than C7M is displayed, refer to the recovery process.
2.Once the phone has booted, the phone asks if you want Manual Configuration?
a.Press the 4 buttons under the LCD from left to right one after the other.
b.The phone displays DHCP? [0=N 1=Y]. Enter 1 to enable DHCP.
c.Navigate down to Provision Server. The phone displays 0.0.0.0.
d.Press the backspace soft key to clear the value. Then enter the IP Address of the IP Office system, for example 192.168.43.1. Press OK.
e.If the phone prompts for a DNS IP address, enter a valid DNS server IP address. If none is available use the IP address of the IP Office system. Press OK.
3.The phone reboots twice and shows SIP firmware name 04.xx.xx.xx on the second reboot. A set of files get downloaded by the phone.
4.When the User Login prompt screen shows up and the SIP domain on the screen matches the IP Office system IP address, the upgrade process is not yet completed. Follow the additional steps below:
a.Press the Service key (English labeled set) or the globe icon key (icon labeled set).
b.Select Device Settings. Enter the default password: 26567*738 (color*set).
c.Navigate down to item 9 Provision Server.
d.Make sure the check box is selected. If not, press Auto.
5.The phone reboots twice and shows SIP firmware name 04.xx.xx.xx on the second reboot. A set of files get downloaded by the phone.
a.When the User Login prompt screen shows up and the SIP domain on the screen matches the server's IP address, the upgrade process is complete. If the SIP domain shows avaya.com then there was a problem with the value of the option 66 parameter provided by the DHCP server.
b.The SIP phone is ready to login a SIP user.
i.The phone displays ID:. Enter the extension number that the phone should use. You can use the right and left cursor keys to move the digit entry cursor. Use the up cursor to delete the previous digit.
iii.The phone displays Password:.
iv.If logging in to a pre-configured user/extension, match the Login Code set for that user.
v.If using the system's Auto-Create Extn/User function, enter 0000.
vi.Press Next twice.
c.The SIP user should now be logged in. If not, then verify the licenses and the user configuration.
