I have installed jabber and connected to presence server and user profile without the need for jabber-config.xml file.
I know other installations do use in fact jabber-config file.
so how does jabber know that it should look for a jabber-config.xml or how can you apply this file to all your users?
other than editing the Cisco Support field.
Because Jabber is hardcoded to look for that file at the root of the TFTP, just as phones know they need to look for their SEPmac.cnf.xml file
I sort of have the same question in that, how does Jabber know to look for a new revised xml file? Once the tftp server is restarted, do I need to reset each jabber client?
i did a post on that a while a go https://ciscoshizzle.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/how-to-obtain-jabber-configxml-file.html
I am not 100% sure you need to reset the Jabber settings to apply the new config.xml file. but you can test, because the file itself is stored locally on the machine in
so log of and on and verify if its pulled the new file, if not close jabber entirely and check the directory again,
Please rate if useful
As per Jaime's post; a hardcoded lookup for the jabber-config.xml file unless specified differently.
Alternatively, if you want to specify an alternative jabber-config.xml file, you could mass-apply this by creating a seperate common phone profile with the Cisco Support field setting specified and apply it to all the phones in question.
