Phone Firmware with multiple models

Phone Firmware with multiple models

Phone Firmware with multiple models

(OP)
I use IIS for our phones to get firmware and settings. We have had 96xx, 961x and B189 models deployed on the same floor and have been able to combine all the relevant firmware into 1 specific folder where the web server points. Recently, we have also started deploying the J169 models. Since adding these files into the mix the 96xx,961x models lose the visiting user field for whatever reason. The only way to get this back is to repoint the webserver at the old folder, without the J169 files. Has anyone come across this?

RE: Phone Firmware with multiple models

We experienced something similar but it was with a different setting. Our solution was to put the J series phoes into their own seperate group and tweak their settings there.

How do you put them separate if they are on the same user switch/vlan as the other models using the same DHCP scope options and pointing to the same webserver?

RE: Phone Firmware with multiple models

I'm also seeing this issue with these models. I use IIS and have the webserver pointed at a folder that has the combined firmware files of the 96xx and j169 h.323 phones. We use one common 46xx.settings file. In this state my 96xx phones lose the 3rd field that allows to select visiting user. It isn't until I repoint the webserver at a folder with only the 96xx files and then reboot. Has anyone experienced this? This is becoming a major issue for us.

RE: Phone Firmware with multiple models

After several hours of tinkering with this, I finally got to the bottom of it.

my issue: when combining firmware of 96xx, 961x, b189 and J169 phones my 9630's specifically would lose the visiting user option. Even with a successful onboarding of a 9630, which I assumed everything remains cached in the phone, the minute I pointed our web server at the combined folder I would lose the feature. Because of the amount of visitors from other regions we had multiple tickets / week from our help desk.

my fix: the newer 96xx upgrade.txt file had no mention of 9630. I copied in the original file into this directory and that solved the issue. I was able to leave both old and new in the directory as the names are slightly different. I did not try adding a line to the newer file with 9630, but I have it working normally nonetheless.

RE: Phone Firmware with multiple models

The 96xxupgrade.txt file for the 96x0 as provided by Avaya contains the 3.3.2A firmware for the 9630. The 96x1Hupgrade.txt file for the 96x1/J169/J179 contains the correct firmware files for those models.
