If you have downloaded UCS 18.104.22.16836, please replace it with UCS 22.214.171.12441 as soon as possible.NOTICE: The issues that required UCS 5.4.2 to be withdrawn from the Polycom Support web site have now been resolved and the new build is now available for download.) and created a new user and pointed it to that folder.I manually pointed the phone to the server address (static IP) of my computer's IP address and manually edited what parts of the files i knew how to configure. I changed my 000000000~file to the MAC address of my phone (.cfg) and in the logs it showed it pulled from that file.Multiple 'stock' directories exist with different versions of SIP, UC, and Boot ROM software, and are named according to the SIP or UC software version contained within.With the recent release of UCS 5.0 for Polycom VVX Phones automatic firmware updates are now supported directly from the Lync Device Update service.I also don't go into pushing out configurations from XML files on a TFTP server, but it may be the way to go if you're doing more than one phone.In the instructions below, TFTP is only really used to push out the firmware updates.
If a new update is available LPE devices will wait for a certain period of inactivity on the phone and then automatically download, waiting again for more idle time before rebooting itself to complete the process.Polycom recommends that any customers who have already downloaded UCS 5.4.2 should download UCS 5.4.2 Rev D and use that release going forward.If you have any questions, please contact your Polycom Global Support representative.About the Polycom 501If you're reading this to see how good certain phones are with Asterisk, let me tell you that the Polycom 501 has excellent features, but is a pain to configure and very tempermental.I've used Soyo phones (they're the worst all around), ip Dialog phones (they're only a little better) and Grandstream's GXP-2000.Note that this article is quite lengthy as the entire process is described in detail, accompanied by various log entries and other examples.Hello all, I have a Poly Com Soundpoint IP 430 phone and somehow or other the boot config got jumbled up (upon rebooting it no longer works).The phone downloaded the bootrom and the file and booted up perfectly (twice). This worked great for me, seemingly, hopefully this will help others as well! I would probably throw the link to some of those files in parenthesis where you're showing the directory listing so people have an idea of where they should go to find them.Hi guys, I've purchased a couple of these handsets second-hand.Notes UCS 5.4.0 WARNING: Due to a serious DTMF related issue discovered just after posting UCS 126.96.36.19936, Polycom has made the decision to REMOVE this version of UC Software and replace it with UCS 188.8.131.5241.As a result, UCS 184.108.40.20636 is NO LONGER SUPPORTED.
