Expand phone mac address into configuration files

Hi,

 

In a per phone configuration, {MAC_ADDRESS}.cfg file has a "variable" PHONE_MAC_ADDRES that expands to the phone's mac address.

 

I've tried using this in a user profile configuration file (used in hoteling/hot desking). But it does not ssem to expand in such configuration files.

 

Something like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<User_CONFIG>
<OVERRIDES
prov.login.localPassword="XXX"
reg.1.displayName="201"
reg.1.address="201"
reg.1.label="201"
reg.1.auth.userId="201/[PHONE_MAC_ADDRESS]"
reg.1.auth.password="XXX"
msg.mwi.1.subscribe="201"
/>
</User_CONFIG>

 

Is there any variable that I can use in this situation?

 

Thanks,

Cristi

Hello Christi,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

Not knowing what software you are currently running I simply quote page 369 from the UCS 4.0.1 Admin Guide:

 

You can also add variables to the master configuration file that are replaced when the phone reboots. The variables include PHONE_MODEL, PHONE_PART_NUMBER, and PHONE_MAC_ADDRESS.

 

These variables are only used there an not anywhere else to my knowledge.
