Dummy MAC Addresses to Permanent

I have around 200 CP-8841 telephones that I have built with dummy macs for an upcoming installation.  Is there a way to use the Bulk admin tool to change them to their permanent ones instead of one at a time?  The phones aren't changing, just the addresses.  Version 11.8 Call Manager.

Not in a direct manner. You could export the phones and edit the CSV in the TAR file, then upload the new TAR file and import it. That way you would get new phones created that would have the same configuration as the once with the dummy MAC. Then you could delete the once with the dummy name (MAC).

Otherwise you’ll need to use AXL to really do a change of the name of the current devices that is based upon the dummy MACs.

I hope you are using 11.5.1su8 and not 11.8.

If you need to use bulk follow what  @Roger Kallberg  mentioned.

Why don't you go with 12.5 and use Activation code. 11.5 will go EOS soon.

Another option is  using  selfprovisoning where user dial an IVR and enter their extension and phone register with new extension.
