Default How does a IP phone knows how to reach the 46xx file?

I have a remote site with existing IP phones and we are adding a small Sales group that needs to have the secondary network port on the 9608 phone blocked. A new customized 46xx file has been created to shut down the port and the file is residing on a new folder in the TFTP server.

The part I don't understand is how can you direct the Sales group phones to the new customized 46xx file if there is already a existing voice vlan and standard 46xx file. New voice vlan?

You would normally edit or replace the existing file and then send a command to restart the phones. Its a normal part of their restart cycle for the phones to request a copy of the file from the address they have already been configured with as a file server.

The address of the TFTP server right? But how do the phones for the new Sales group know to get the new settings file? We created a new folder specifically for the Sales groups.

I don't want the Sales group phones to pick up the settings file for the existing phones on the same floor. Hope that make sense..

You normally do this via your dhcp scope options

You really need to go to support.avaya.com and get a copy of the 9600 Series LAN Administrators manual.

First I think 9600 Series phones don't do TFTP, they use HTTP or HTTPS.

For what you want the normal approach would be to use a GROUP id. For each of the Sales team phones that can be set through the phone's local admin menus.

In the 46xxsettings file you would have a section like the following:

IF $GROUP SEQ 1 goto SALES
goto NOTSALES

# SALES
...settings unique to the sales team phones...
goto COMMON

# NOTSALES
... settings unique to all other phones...
goto COMMON

# COMMON
...settings common to all phones...

... have edited the previous to make minor correction to my outline of the script (first time round non-sales phones would have skipped their own settings)
