Is it possible to add in a script to get the old Nortel / Avaya UNISTim to upgrade to the .33 issue?

Hello everyone

I've been playing with the 11xxdialplan.txt and have got an old Nortel / Avaya 1230 to work on a IPO at 11.0 OK. I was wondering if you could or if anybody has been successful in getting these phones to automatically upgrade to the latest firmware level.

The IPO systems come in firmware release 23 as standard but the latest release is at 33.
i.s. the 1230 phones use SIP1120e04.04.23.00.bin but you can download SIP1120e04.04.33.00.bin onto the SD card via the Embedded File Management tool which I have done so. I'm guessing that you need to add in a script to force the phone to use the later firmware as we do for the J series phones where we have button module problems via loading those files in via the Embedded File Management and then a small text file such as the one below called.

## IPOFFICE/11.0.4.1.0 build 11 192.168.43.1 AUTOGENERATED
IF $MODEL4 SEQ J129 GOTO J129_SW
IF $MODEL4 SEQ J139 GOTO J139_SW
IF $MODEL4 SEQ J169 GOTO J169_SW
IF $MODEL4 SEQ J179 GOTO J179_SW
GOTO END
# J129_SW
SET APPNAME FW_S_J129_R4_0_2_1_3.bin
GOTO GETSET
# J139_SW
SET APPNAME FW_S_J139_R4_0_2_1_3.bin
GOTO GETSET
# J169_SW
SET APPNAME FW_S_J169_R4_0_2_1_3.bin
SET JEM24_APPNAME FW_JEM24_R1_0_1_0_8.bin
GOTO GETSET
# J179_SW
SET APPNAME FW_S_J179_R4_0_2_1_3.bin
SET JEM24_APPNAME FW_JEM24_R1_0_1_0_8.bin
GOTO GETSET
# GETSET
GET 46xxsettings.txt

I have attached a copy of the file that we use.

I'm sure that there must be a method to get these phones to update rather than having to set up a TFTP server?. Any help would be greatly appreciated please?.

RE: Is it possible to add in a script to get the old Nortel / Avaya UNISTim to upgrade to the .33 issue?

Its done in the individual .cfg files for the phones (1220SIP.cfg, 1120eSIP.cfg, 1120eSIP.cfg). You specify the firmware version you want it to download, reboot the phone and it'll upgrade.

You should be able to change the version and filename as shown below. They can upgrade via HTTP, and HTTP is needed if you want the directory functionality to work.

That said, I've never tried going to anything newer than the 4.23 version. I haven't checked for newer firmware for those phones in quite some time - I figured development was near and end for those phones. :)

Hello biv343. Thanks for the reply the other day. Sorry I haven't replied back before then. I'm guessing that it's just a case of adding in the correct file such as the "1220SIP.cfg" file etc in the primary folder?. I shall give this a go and report back.

Many thanks
