Polycom ip phone updating initial configuration

Consultative transfer on a handset under Lync has to date been the exclusive domain of the Tanjay/CX700, and now I see it’s natively across the entire Sound Point family as well. Other selling points for me include: I thought I’d take Jeff’s posts a little further and see what else I could find or do with these guys…

If you’re very price-sensitive and buying new devices, the savings made here (compared to the ‘official’ Aries devices) will potentially justify the additional administration costs.

Because my Lync deployment is all anchored to my Lab’s root cert, I just exported the root cert from my server. Navigate to the Console Root / Certificates (Local Computer) / Trusted Root Certification Authorities / Certificates and click to select your root cert.

Right-click / All Tasks / Export / Next / Base-64 encoded / Next / / Next / Finish / OK & close the MMC.

“OK” when you’ve done, then back-arrow until you’re prompted to save config: If the phone doesn’t automatically reboot at this point, back-arrow or press Menu to get out, then select Menu, 3Status, 1Basic, 4Restart Phone and Yes. At this point, the screen on the phone cycled through a range of messages: Once you make it through all of the above, you have a phone ready to talk to Lync, but it’s not yet authenticated.

From the phone, select Menu / 3Settings / 1Basic / 4Login Credentials.
