I am trying to reset the voicemail and greetings password. Checked few documents & discussion in Cisco community to reset the same.
Followed below steps but now phone is not even proceeding with the upgrade.
It is just hanging up in CISCO LOGO home screen & restart continuously .
Any suggestions or help to recover my phone and reset the password ?
What you did has absolutely nothing with what you were trying to achieve, the voicemail settings are not on the phone. That would be handled in your actual voicemail system.
Make sure DHCP is configured, you're pointing to a call control with all the configuration files for that device, and that has the necessary FW for it.
If you're an end user, reach out to your support/IT team for assistance.
As Jaime pointed out, what you did was reset the Cisco IP Phone itself and not the voicemail password.
First, let's get your phone back online. The symptoms you are describing with the logo-only on the display and the endless cycling tells me you might be running into a 2-stage firmware upgrade problem.
What model phone is this?
What version of CUCM (or are you running CUCM Express)?
Yes, I understood that but I found only those steps in previous discussions to reset it.
1. 7965 model phones
2. we use very very old version - Cisco unity express - 7.0
Thanks in advance
To get your phone back online, you will need to perform a two-stage firmware upgrade. Because of a change in the Cisco Certificates used to sign the firmware, phones whose factory-firmware is pre-8.3(3) must be upgraded to a firmware version in the range 8.3(3) - 8.5(2), then you can upgrade to whatever the version is you are running with your CCME installation.
Here is a link to upgrading firmware with CCME. The equipment mentioned in the document is a little old, but the procedure is the same in current IOS and CCME versions:
As for changing/resetting the password in CUE 7.0, here is a link to the "Windows and Menus" chapter of the Administration Guide which shows the screen where this is done:
I hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for quick reply !!!
I dont see any option to reset the password so, I created a new mailbox for users which created a new voice mailbox and new password to set, which rectified the issue for most of the users.
Trying to work on the firmware upgrade, thank you so much.
