The process below will change the mode of the system and default its configuration.

To change a system from IP Office Basic Edition mode:

The processes below require the IP Office system to reboot in order to apply any changes made. The reboot ends all current calls and services.

1.Using IP Office Manager, receive the configuration from the system.

2.When requested, enter the service user name and password.

3.The IP Office Manager application automatically switches to its simplified view as the configuration is from a system running in IP Office Basic Edition mode.

4.Select File | Advanced | Switch to Standard Mode (Default).

5.The configuration changes to a default one for a IP Office Essential Edition system and IP Office Manager switches to its advanced view mode.

6.This is a suitable time to begin initial configuration before sending the configuration back to the IP Office system to restart in IP Office Essential Edition.

For a system to run in IP Office Essential Edition or IP Office Preferred Edition mode, its configuration must include an Essential Edition license. A system without this license will not allow any telephony functions until the license is added.

7.Once the system has rebooted, use IP Office Manager to again receive the configuration from the system. The user name and password for configuration should be the normal defaults Administrator and Administrator.
