Avaya 406 DS 3.0 (40) firmware upgradeHelpful Member!

Hello!

I really need to upgrade the firmware on our Avaya 406 DS to version 3.2 at least. System monitor says the following about RAM: FreeMem=47893200(34). From what I have read briefly that should suffice? We tried to upgrade the firmware to version 3.2 in the past, which went through fine, but upon rebooting all the avaya handsets would say there was a loop in the xxx.scr files and keep restarting. We had to revert back to version 3.0 (40). We are currently running IP Office manager 5.2 (54). Do I need to upgrade the .scr files on the phones first and how?

Thanks!

The 5410/5420 phones will need to upgrade the firmware inside them if going through this upgrade.


Download latest 3.2(sixty something) from www.avaya.com

1st: Make sure you have upgraged the Manager application.
2nd: Make sure Manager is acting as TFTP server ot have 3rd Party TFTP installed and running.  If 3rd party, make sure it is pointing at Manager directory.  If Manager, it will only respond to 5 requests at a time.  USE A 3rd PARTY SERVER.
3rd: Make sure TFTP IP address is set in IPO (under "System") and is correct for Manager PC.

When you install the new Manager app is should write new .scr and .txt files for IP phones.

PS

If your unit is a 406v2DS then why not go upto 4.2??  Why stop at 3.2??

Thanks for your replies! It is a 406 DS V2 PCS07. Will I be able to go up to 4.2? The handsets are a mixture of 5601, 5602 and 5610's. I am battling to locate the latest 56xxx bin files for these phones. Jamie you say the installation of the new manager will create these files, will it over write the current ones?

Yes you can, and yes it will overwrite the contents of the Manager folder which is where the bin files are by default.

STOP !!!

A PCS 7 can de a 16mb version or the needed 64mb version !!!!

You need to check the amount of memory

Open monitor and look for "freemem =47434321"

When it is 7 digits then it is a NO, is it 8 digits then it is a YES !!!
